    Strong start Fizzled in the End
    This show as a concept is great in the same vein as the Dot.Hack video games and it does a great job in the beginning to interest and captivate you. But, personally if they would have kept it limited to just the first 14 episodes I would give it five stars but after the first arc things for me got really weird. Their strong female character became a lady in distress and the show became very harem ...

    Good Hook, Executed HORRIBLY
    Sword Art Online is an anime with great potential, but the potential is ultimately wasted due to terrible writing, character development, and animation.

    THEME
    The entire premise of the show is based upon when characters die in the game, they die in real life. This is a good theme, adding a sense of suspense as a character can die at any time. HOWEVER, the entire theme is wasted ...

    one of my favorite shows!
    I can not wait for season 3! i think season should rap every thing up (sadly). hopefully season 3 will be out soon. the ending of sword art online season 2 is sad and crazy at the same time and i cant wait to be able to see the next season of this show hopefully it will be super awesome!

    Needs more mayonnaise ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)
    This anime is relatively bland, but at least the fan service really pays dividends when you have a shit story. 10/10 would love more close up ass shots, #Sinon is best girl.

    Time to be honest jack.
    This show should not have that many five star ratings. Which is why I am giving a 1-star. However I will give it a 5/5 in pandering to the lowest denominators, horrid light novel plot, frustrating main heroine, and time waster. SAO is just one of the many Light Novel cheap trashy adaptations, unfortunately this one gained a fandom. Watcha gonna do? When the SAO and its fanbase destroy you! ~ ...

    Stereotypical Fantasy/Gamer/Harem staple show... In a good way!
    I've been watching anime for the last few years and admittedly, haven't written a review until now. So, I'll keep it simple:

    Pros -
    - Interesting, character driven story
    - Overall interesting cast
    - Lots of character growth spread out over the length of the series

    Cons -
    - I wasn't a huge fan of SAO II. The story ventured a bit far from the original design IMO.

    This is a series I ...

    Amazing. 11/10, way too great
    I think Sword Art Online is absolutely amazing.

    I think it's amazing, in that it gathered such a large fanbase with such flat characters (breast-wise and personality-wise) and terrible plotlines. How could you even watch the Alfheim arc without cringing and wishing that Kirito would just kill Asuna and then himself afterwards to save us all the suffering. The most awe I felt was how stupid ...

    Did this go down hill or what
    Christ. I didn't think a show could so soundly undermine what made it great in the beginning, but SAO managed. After initially setting a theme of horror and fear, a classic "anyone can die" feeling in the first few episodes, this is almost immediately undermined. People stop dying, and so the stakes of the story, what is supposed to make up care, are gone. I don't even want to talk about the story ...

    If Only They Had Done It a Bit Different
    This is an entertaining show. No doubt about that. I really like the art style and the music. The premise of the first arc is awesome. The show had so much potential for greatness, and it has become immensely popular.

    Still, I have some problems with it, starting with the main character. He's just too good. It removes the suspense when he just breaks the rules at will. He draws a harem to ...
