    Great anime with very little problems
    Sao is one of the greatest animes of all time. It has great character development, a great storyline, awesome characters that you can get really attached to, and very realistic ideas of how the NerveGear actually works, so much that people are really trying to develop a real one. The future year of 2022 is very accurate too, there aren't robots that do every little thing in the world for them, and ...

    First season is great
    HI,

    I've listen to the first season and was really interested. When I got to the second season I got myself to think how much great it could have been to continue in the same game with more details and more hard time for Kirito. Seems the game concluded to fast.

    SAO- A show that could have been more...
    I know what your thinking: "But SAO was great! How was it missing anything? It is my favorite anime of all times!!!!!!!". And to be honest, SAO is great. In fact, I think the whole idea of locking players in a virtual world (aka Video Game aka VRMMORPG) is incredibly brilliant. It caters to the gamer's who watch Anime, which is a huge fraction of the Anime watching pie, one could safely say. And ...

    Great Anime with Some Setbacks
    I finished SAO about a week ago, and overall it was a good anime with some setbacks. For both seasons, I felt that the story lines second half were much stronger, while the first half focused more on action as opposed to realism. For instance, the SAO plot in the first half of the first season seemed to move way too fast, and the first few episodes didn’t really connect well with each other. I ...

    Absolutely Love It! Such A Great Series!
    From the plotline, to the dynamics of the characters, to the action, the drama, even the ambiance at times, all of it was on point in my book. Not to mention the message that rings clear throughout the series, treat everyone as you would treat them in real life, people have feelings behind the other side of the computer screen.

    My favorite anime of all time
    At school i had a friend, he was always bugging me to watch Sword Art Online, but I always told him, "I don't watch anime". Now here we are, me giving it 5/5 stars. This clicked perfectly for me. I don't know what it was, it just did. For me, im not comparing it to other anime. But the characters were perfect, the story was perfect, everything, and in the second half, the most evil villain i had ...

    I really enojoyed this anime.
    Honestly, I think SAO was a great anime the only thing i didn't like about it was some sections were abit rushed which kinda leaves some things unexplained. With my experience with SAO you either like it or you dont. I would recommend giving it a try!

    Decent Introduction Anime. Terrible Actual Anime.
    If you're new to anime as a visual medium, then more than likely you will enjoy this show. It tends to entertain those who aren't looking for, or lack experience, in the realm of narrative and writing.

    I'm not saying you shouldn't watch this show. If your friend told you to check it out, then by all means please do. But if you want to actually enjoy this, then you'll have to turn your brain ...

    So, how many good reviews must you read before you watch this show?
    The actual review is the next paragraph, but first a few questions. How did you come to start reading this review? You must have had to read through multiple other reviews, well either that, or you just skim through the ratings and titles to see which will give you the best idea of what the show is like. Also, how are you, and how have you not watched this show yet, it's received tons of praise by ...
