    A very addicting, but inconsistent series
    Authors of SAO had a very good, even though not completely original idea and coupled it with compelling characters and good production values. People trapped in a videogame in which "when you die you die for real" might sound like a cliche, but the MMORPG setting and very long timespan of the story gives it unique feel. Creators can explore how people not just fight for survival, but start to ...

    SAO, in my opinion, is NOT that great
    If SAO wasn't my very first anime, I would have given it one star. In my own opinion, everyone thinks SAO is really great, and yeah I guess it is, BUT there are way too many filler episodes to the point that you forget what their main objective is, as if the creators forgot that they're trying to leave the game. The amount of time they spent in the game was understandable, but then you get to the ...

    SAO Review that doesn't spoil anything
    I love Sword Art Online and Sword Art Online II. I love how they developed the characters and the story. The way that the story is developed is amazing. I love the way that the story is played through. I wish they had added all the time that happened during the time skips.

    It's more of a guilty pleasure for me
    It's not the worst anime I've ever seen but it's not the best either. Many either adore or despise SAO but honestly I'm stuck somewhere in the middle. There are somethings that I like and somethings I don't like.

    SAO 1: The first half is pretty good IF you ignore it's plotholes. I love the action scenes, the music is amazing and the episodes can be very entertaining and at times kind of ...

    Sword art online Review
    All in all great Anime, Good Plot, Funny Characters, and good Fight Scenes To be Honest my Third Fav. Anime out of all of them (For now :3) Not to Mention The Emotion they put into this, and the all out Personality's they put into these Characters.. No one could do a Better Job. 5 Stars

    One of my favorites!
    Sword Art Online is easily one of my favorite anime's ever. The storylines have been consistently perfect and the characters are extremely dynamic. There are some weird and unnecessary moments and plot twists throughout the show but that's it. There are very few imperfections. I would rate this show 5/5

    It's a 10 out of 10 for me
    I'm not going to write an in-depth review but I would like to say how I feel about this anime. After finishing season two, I have gone and bought a few books from the series and will be starting them in wait for season three. I really enjoyed this series, from the funny moments to the more serious and tear jerking moments. This anime has been amazing for me which is why I'm giving it five stars. I ...

    Love With Skepticism
    I have heard a ton of extremely positive and extremely negative things about SAO. I am putting this out there: I don't necessarily agree with either side.
    When I watched SAO, I was hooked and I thought it was really great. The story was riveting, the characters were all unique and likable.
    I understand that SAO has its many criticisms and nitpicks, but I thought it was fantastic overall.
    I am ...

    Some of the worst characterization I've ever seen.
    If you find SAO interesting for any particular reason there's a handful of different animes that have done that same thing better. Go watch those instead. Literally the only defining aspects of the main character are that he is broody and is good at games and the harem that is the other characters are almost as bad.

    Blown away - where is season 3?
    Here goes my first review.

    I've seen SAO mentioned many times from around the time it first started airing to this day. Many comments said that the characters were shallow or that they just didn't enjoy the story.

    I'm glad I finally decided to give SAO a shot. Usually I've tried to give each anime around five episodes to get me interested and I'd drop the series if I didn't like it by that ...
