    Hands down, one of the best mixed-genre series in existence.
    Action. Romance. School. Drama. There's virtually (pun intended) something for everyone.
    Most character development feels complete and well-deserved. The graphics-heavy sequences are very clean and well-animated. The dialogue is relate-able and worth every line...
    But what is most important about this story is the unmatched emotional love/action tale that will have you blushing, cheering and ...

    Amazing, an MMO gamer's dream anime!
    Wow, what can I say about this show that hasn't already been said? I loved the story, the characters, everything about it really. The art and animation's beautiful and extremely well-done. The fight scenes were great and the story was fantastic, it really pulled me in and made me want to keep watching. Whilst the second half of the season was lacking in comparison to the first, it is still ...

    A good show let down by the hype
    This anime could have been really great. There was so much potential behind this concept. So very many interesting things they could have done with it .Such as an exploation of a die hard gamer's character set. The real world virtual world juxtaposition. A persn exposed to real possibility of death for the first time and how it changes them. Unfortunately this did not occur and the great ...

    Great anime, Must watch
    Love this anime, I was out of the scene(aside from ocassional watchings of stuff I personally had) and this one brought me back. Thats how good it was. It is reminisent of .hack in plot I think, people stuck in a game world. But this one has some comedy, a great romance side, and awesome fight scenes.

    It only goes downhill from here.
    This Anime starts out with a lot of potential, the animation is beautiful and it has an interesting premise, but after the first episode it immediately starts to go downhill. Let's start with main character, Kirito. First off he has absolutely no flaws and from the very first episode he's extremely powerful, knowing anything and everything about the game in which this series takes place in. Not to ...

    Immersive and Engaging
    I couldn't stop watching this and eagerly awaited (and await.. >.>) episodes. I got sucked in after an episode or two just wondering: what parameters does the game have? who is going to end up liking who? will they get out? how is it going to happen? and there were a few "oh SNAP!" moments throw in the mix. It was a great mix of action, a little romancy fluff, intrigue, fun, and enjoyability. I ...

    Like a real MMO it's fun in the beginning but it becomes a grind.
    This review would be much easier if it could be divided into two halves. SOA really shines in episodes 1-13 but just when it hits its stride the whole dynamic of the show changes.

    The first 13 episodes focus on a group of MMO players who become stuck in a life or death game full of interesting characters and an engaging world. While the story is reminiscent of .hack it doesn't have the "been ...

    One of the Best Animes
    This one hits home for MMO and Anime fans alike. There's action, drama, tension romance; in short, something for everyone. Rather than spoil anything, just watch. I guarantee that from the first episode you will be hooked. I've watched the entire series from start to finish at least 10 times. It's that good! ENJOY!
