    Good Story, Great Action, Lots of Filler
    I really enjoyed the action and the environment. It was really well executed and very enjoyable to watch. My only issue is that this show has more filler than a 60 year old man's teeth. Half of the first season could be skipped without really missing anything important.

    If you enjoy fantasy themed environments and swordplay this is a fantastic option.

    SAO Ruined potential
    It started really good with an interesting video game theme. Then the show failed to make the characters interesting at all. Then Alfheim Online happened.

    The show will only disappoint you (if you're anything like me). 4/10 do not recommend.
    my review isn't long enough blah blah blah

    A Stunning, Exceptional Mix of Action and Romance
    Sword Art Online tells a heart-racing story about the human will to survive and to gain the power to be able to protect the people who are precious to them. This anime illustrates how love and friendship are our saviour and meaning through our burdensome lives. In a merciless, dangerous world where death is only one step away, the bonds we make are the anchors that keep us from drowning in the ...

    Great Story and Anime
    If u love video games and want VRMMORPG than this is the anime for you.The characters are great,storyline always has something new to show,sword fights everywhere.To be Honest i dont like the ALO part to much but the first 12 Eps in aincard was much more Exitcing. Season 2 GGO was quite intersing since death gun met Kirito in sao and still determined to be a "Red Player".

    More than just an anime
    This is an anime that has Many different attributes compressed in it and still works. I have watched many many MANY anime and very few have so many qualities about them that mix as well as this show does. This anime does a magnificent job of not only creating drama in actions but it creates drama in the conversations and with everything the characters say. This is anime has some of the best action ...

    Not the best show.. little over-rated
    I feel like this show is going for action and harem at the same time and not doing it very well. I would often find myself liking other characters more than the main love protagonist but not being able to root for them. The show is okay, the first part was really good, and the romance was as well. However, there were some ridiculous excuses in this anime that absolutely couldn't happen in reality, ...

    Amazing Start Only to Fall Short(Both Series)
    This show brought a uniqueness to it that was slowly distinguished at the midway point of both seasons. Love the pace, character interaction, and side stories offered during these points. Both times it has felt that these seasons should have been left to 12 episodes. Elfheim Online just doesn't do it for me.
    Recommendation: Watch Sword Art Online till the beginning of first bridge. Watch final ...

    Season 1 was bad, while Season 2 is the Season 1 we deserved.
    My score of 4 stars goes to Season 2, while Season 1 gets 2 stars . It did have some problems, but problems are not staring at you like they did in Season 1. We get a better characterized Kirito, an interesting character in Sinon, and some after effects of the MMO incident of SAO. It was interesting. Then we got the Calibur arc, and that too was interesting, although the peeve here is the lack on ...

    Amazing anime but important characters (females) lose their uniqueness
    Great anime with good character development and interesting story,it does slow down during the fairy dance arc but it really picks up during season 2 of the ggo arc but what i don't like is that most of the female characters lose their unique touch and just become some Kirito fangirl in the end which ruins characters like Asuna, but overall it's a good anime that is mostly based in a video game ...
