    In the Top 25 Anime of all time. Must witness.
    Although the second season was spectacular... the first season still was the best In my opinion... I would definitely put SOA in my top 3 of anime, its so well written and the scenes are fantastic. It is a well balanced blend between plot twists and well thought out motions of super cool heroism.

    SAO 1 > SAO 2, and let me tell you why.
    The first season of Sword Art Online was one of the most exciting animes of it's season. It truly shined as an Anime in nearly every aspect. I could compliment SAO 1 all day, but I'm actually here to warn you to stay away from SAO 2.

    SAO 2 ruined the images of many of the characters in my mind. Kirito, the protagonist of the series, eventually softens up into the biggest spineless pussy the ...

    Just watch it. I promise you will NOT REGRET IT!
    This is by far my favorite anime. The action is sufficient and I'm not a romance kind of guy, but they put just enough to make this story tear jerking. I lost my man-card to the show. They show immediately pulls you in with the first episode and you will not want to stop watching. If your a person who loves MMO's, then you will be even more thrilled by this.

    Its really going downhill
    The first season of this anime and the Gun Gale online portion were phenomenal, one of the best animes i'd ever seen. After Kirito leaves GGO, however, it started to steeply go downhill. The plot is getting less and less interesting, very filler-like and cheesy. The show is just trying too hard to make the viewers have feelings for characters that the viewer doesn't even have time to connect with. ...

    Overall one of the Best shows I have seen!
    After the first episode, I was addicted! Season 1 was one of the best things I have ever seen. Its a perfect mix of action, romance, comedy, and plot! Kirito is still one of the most mysterious and surprising characters. He is also one of my top 5 favorites! The fights are intense and cinematic! Every time you feel like you understand the extent to a character, they throw more at you.
    Season 2 ...

    Sword Art Online: One of The Best
    This show has many people calling it amazing and many calling it horrible. While show has faults, it quickly regains it's balance and becomes stronger as the plot progresses.

    The quality of characters and their development is pretty uneven, some characters are very good in terms of back story, personality, and writing behind them while others completely lack relevancy and are easily ...

    loses the show in second part?
    Please read all the way through before you rate this helpful/not helpful :)

    When i first watched this anime i loved it! 5 stars! but the more i thought about the plot and development of characters, I felt SAO really fell short of what it could have been. Despite its issues i still think its a good anime to watch as it has become somewhat of a modern classic.

    Season one: Its been a ...

    Some Good, Some Bad...
    With all the potential this anime has had, right from the first arc, Sword Art Online continues to be...rather flawed. Yes, there are many moments that hit you right in the feels (Konno Yuuki, anyone?), as well as wonderful battle scenes (the duel between Asuna and Yuuki was probably the highlight of the series). There are also characters that achieve literally nothing, and are only there ...

    One of the best anime series ever!
    SAO is, by far, one of the best anime series I've ever seen. I only wish there were more episodes. I was extremely surprised by the quality of the plot lines, and the tie-in between story arcs. If was done seamlessly. The premise behind this anime is one the coolest that I have come across.

    Fantastic anime and will treasure this story for years to come
    I have loved SAO since day 1 when I discovered it at a local con. They were just announcing the english dubs. I haven't ever loved an anime like I love this. You can relate to the characters and you really feel for them. This is an anime that must be watched over and over again! Its fascinating as well to think about all this technology that our generation is very close to achieving if they ...
