    Its really going downhill
    The first season of this anime and the Gun Gale online portion were phenomenal, one of the best animes i'd ever seen. After Kirito leaves GGO, however, it started to steeply go downhill. The plot is getting less and less interesting, very filler-like and cheesy. The show is just trying too hard to make the viewers have feelings for characters that the viewer doesn't even have time to connect with. ...

    Overall one of the Best shows I have seen!
    After the first episode, I was addicted! Season 1 was one of the best things I have ever seen. Its a perfect mix of action, romance, comedy, and plot! Kirito is still one of the most mysterious and surprising characters. He is also one of my top 5 favorites! The fights are intense and cinematic! Every time you feel like you understand the extent to a character, they throw more at you.
    Season 2 ...

    Sword Art Online: One of The Best
    This show has many people calling it amazing and many calling it horrible. While show has faults, it quickly regains it's balance and becomes stronger as the plot progresses.

    The quality of characters and their development is pretty uneven, some characters are very good in terms of back story, personality, and writing behind them while others completely lack relevancy and are easily ...

    loses the show in second part?
    Please read all the way through before you rate this helpful/not helpful :)

    When i first watched this anime i loved it! 5 stars! but the more i thought about the plot and development of characters, I felt SAO really fell short of what it could have been. Despite its issues i still think its a good anime to watch as it has become somewhat of a modern classic.

    Season one: Its been a ...

    Some Good, Some Bad...
    With all the potential this anime has had, right from the first arc, Sword Art Online continues to be...rather flawed. Yes, there are many moments that hit you right in the feels (Konno Yuuki, anyone?), as well as wonderful battle scenes (the duel between Asuna and Yuuki was probably the highlight of the series). There are also characters that achieve literally nothing, and are only there ...

    One of the best anime series ever!
    SAO is, by far, one of the best anime series I've ever seen. I only wish there were more episodes. I was extremely surprised by the quality of the plot lines, and the tie-in between story arcs. If was done seamlessly. The premise behind this anime is one the coolest that I have come across.

    Fantastic anime and will treasure this story for years to come
    I have loved SAO since day 1 when I discovered it at a local con. They were just announcing the english dubs. I haven't ever loved an anime like I love this. You can relate to the characters and you really feel for them. This is an anime that must be watched over and over again! Its fascinating as well to think about all this technology that our generation is very close to achieving if they ...

    Outstandingly realistic and entertaining anime
    SAO's set is on the near future , when virtual reality games have became a way of entertainment. It has realistic characters , which you can feel empathy for , and an amazing plot. You won't believe how much this anime represents the futuristic possibilities of virtual reality . I don't want to spoil much so you just have to give it a try yourself

    Fantastic i would reccommend to anyone
    This won't be a very long review but, I love this anime it has fantastic characters that make you almost instantly love them. The story starts amazing although episode 14-25 of season 1 weren't the greatest episodes the episodes of season 2 are fantastic and make up for it. The background details help you see the characters even more clearly, and I hope this show goes on for a long time. I hope ...
