    Definitely worth your time.
    Just another stuck-in-a-game series.. right?

    Nope:
    Of the immersed MMO genre, this series stands out.
    Sword Art Online takes the time to plausibly explain the world and how it happens. Of course, with suspension of disbelief, but the characters react realistically.

    It also does not hang its hat on one hook. There are 4 major story arcs that allow you to follow the characters through ...

    Could of Done better
    This anime had the potential to become something great, beautiful story with many obstacles and a great character arch, but instead it was a climactic first few episodes, a flat line, and then a descent into a dark hole filled with plot holes, confusion, and terrible plot lines. Kirito never grows as a character, what makes a person love a character is the way they develop or change. Never once ...

    Great potential, Terrible results
    SAO starting off was great. It had a unique (ish) premise, the characters introduced were great and all distinctive. The fighting was epic and had some very compelling moments. One thing I loved about this is the relationship between
    They work well together and it was fun seeing them together. Unfortunately, the plot moved at lightning fast speed and the ...

    A show that once had potential
    When the first episode came out, I had really high hopes that this was gonna become a good thing. We are now on the edge of the start of season 3 and my hopes have been sadly destroyed. The show is now a predictable generic fantasy show filled with bland characters and boring plots.

    The only likable characters are either: 1 - In Kirito's harem and are only really seen as eye candy for the male ...

    Most stunning and brilliant show out there.
    SAO is by far the best show i have seen. While it lacks slightly in character development, iit makes up for it with its many emotional moments that make you feel how the characters feel. If there was an intro to anime show this would be it. I would definitely recommend this to anyone starting to watch anime, or someone who just wants to watch something new.

    Crazy start and it doesn't slow down a single episode.
    i thought it would be just another bland (protagonist saves the day and saves the princess story) and while it did technically follow this theme the characters were interesting and the plot got thicker every day. the whole (matrix die ingame-die in real life) stchick really did make every episode of season 1 chair-grabbing. and season 2 even though it feels very lighthearted with the graphics is ...

    10 OUT OF 10, Best Anime, Great Story, Easy to binge watch :)
    Great story, Easy to binge watch.
    YOU MUST WATCH SWORD ART ONLINE SEASON 1 FIRST AND THEN THE EXTRA EDITION WHICH IS A MOVIE. BEFORE YOU WATCH SEASON 2.
    Can't wait until Sword Art Online The Movie: Ordinal Scale 2017 movie comes out.
    If you like anime and video games you need to watch this anime.
    This anime has got a lot of reviews and there's a reason why. I don't want to spoil anything so ...

    Epic, Realistic Romance
    This is good because the romance is realistic, it shows what their daily life, and their problems are realistic, this anime is about new technology, and this pretty much explains gamers in the future, possibly coming true, it is a really good anime indeed.

    Difficult to watch/take seriously
    Sword Art Online, despite being one of the most popular anime out there, is difficult to watch for anyone who knows or cares about story telling in any capacity. The characters are hard to relate to and mos barely seem human with the exception of maybe Asuna.

    Worse than that is the complete lack of any stakes in the story. At no point in any episode was I ever worried that Kirito would lose at ...
