    Awesome fight scenes and plot why the romance?
    I really liked the first what 5 episodes but after that I really didn't appreciate how the series continued from that point on. It seemed that the story changed from how awesome solo player Kirito was into Kirito turns into a team player through the power of love. In my opinion the romantic aspects the became a larger and larger plot point from episode 8 on really killed my excitement. I'm not ...

    SWORD ART AMAZING?!?
    This flipping show is the first anime I watched in my entire anime career. Let's just say it's what got me into this world and I've never seen a show that I can connect to more easily. It has everything I look in a show. Comedy, romance, action, hot girls, adventure, and a little edge to keep you constantly watching. Let's just say I finished season one in one night. And that was a school ...

    Mediocre Plot/Nice Animation
    Sword Art Online is a great show that semi-connects too those of you who do play mmorpgs, it has many similarities in its development as a game; but, it also sometimes goes completely against the dogma of a mmo... you cant solo a raid boss, which happens probably three times in the first 14 episodes of the show. Not to mention there are a lot of fallacies in the plot; poor character development, ...

    This is my favourite anime
    I know that a ton of people give this so much criticism but i think it is fantastic....if you like good anime then this is a show for you The first arc is just fantastic, the second one doesnt follow up to the same hype as the first. The second season just fantastic over all.

    Best Show I've Ever Seen!
    Sword Art Online's plot centers around a near future in which a full dive Virtual Reality Massively Multiplayer Online Role-Playing Game(VRMMORPG) is created. The simulation is beautiful and certainly fuels the imagination of gamers. Kirito, the protagonist, beta-tested this game and tries it out on its release. Soon, he learns he can't log out and the only way out, is to beat the game! Also, if ...

    Concepts, the anime.
    The ideas for this show are great but the lack of character development, and the abundance of fan service with way too many unnecessary side characters that have little weight in the show mixed with the cheep laugh here and there is disappointing. Sure they do things well here and there, like animation, research, and small things that spice up the show, but overall it was not the most compelling ...

    Close but not Quite!
    I was quite wary when I found out that they changed directors for the second season, and more or less I was right in feeling so. The show tried to regain the tension of "you die in the game, you die for real" tone that the previous season had, and for a little while it did. Unfortunately, when the culprits' identities were unveiled the investigation leading up to it was very longwinded and tends ...
