    What happened to this show
    The first 14 episodes of SAO (Aincrad Arc) were great with good characters and a great plot I would highly recommend it. However, after the Aincrad Arc this show really goes down hill and SAO II continues the trend. The show just seems so bland and ordinary, the art is done well but beyond that there really isn't that much to say about it. The writers really need to do their best to turn things ...

    Decent art, very generic characters and story.
    A lot of anime can be derivative but few go out of there way to be as derivative and uninteresting as SAO. Almost all the characters fall in love with a gary stu character named Kirito that does always what you expect and gets praised for it as if it is something out of this world. The storytelling structure makes it seem like it wasn't planned and will often seem like it has it's own fillers ...

    Sword Art Online I Review
    This was an amazing anime, this was i believe the 3rd anime that i've completed and it definitely got me into anime even more. At first i was confused as there is essentially 2 different stories or arcs in the first season.I like the first arc the most out of the two. It was very interesting and kept me eager to see what happens next. I do think that there is a tad excess of romance in the story ...

    Oh my word. Where to start on this let down.
    0/10 would kill myself if I had to watch again. I guess this is just an unpopular opinion apparently based on all other reviews. There are literally no redeeming factors for this show. Terrible character development, terrible characters overall (except kirito and Death Gun ), they literally invented a scenario that never happened in Sao season 1 as the main plot point. Nothing but insanely ...

    Amazing and Meh but.....
    Sword Art Online is an exceptional show. I Really enjoyed this show, and now with Season 2, still am enjoying it. The first half of Season 1 was almost perfect, The second half some people hated. I didn't hate the second half of Season 1 but I was disappointed by it because I know that this show can do better. When Season 2 came along I feel like this show redeemed itself. Sword Art Online has ...

    Best Anime In My Opinion <3 Asuna
    Never really watched too much anime because I didn't find it as interesting as other people but when I watched Sword Art Online I became addicted to it and couldn't stop watching. I'm mostly talking for season 1 because I think they did an extremely good job on it. Season 2 on the other hand wasn't as intense and didn't connect to me as much as season 1. Asuna <3

    Review of Sword Art Online
    Plot
    Unstable! The beginning is interesting, though more and more boring till Kirito and Asuna fell in love, and the rate of interest(which is not that really high) goes on till the end of Season 1. Season 2: too normal. It seems to have a lot of meanings in the plot, for example, to treasure the ones you love... but wait, it is just a "seems". When I watched it again more seriously, I ...

    Truly flawless Anime
    I'm two years late to this anime but boy am I happy I decided to watch it. I only regret not watching it sooner. SAO is filled with so many cute, romantic and happy scenes but dark and saddening scenes, it really keeps you at the edge of your seat. Or bed. Or whatever you prefer to use. I'm not even exaggerating this, but this anime made me realize what it means to live and find happiness in ...

    This show is not as good as its fans think
    Okay so this show is not the worst thing on here. Its okay the animation is good and fights are fun however the writing and characters of this show are terrible. MC is boring and predictable, the plot is literally full of holes, and very predictable. The females in this show all seem to fall for a charm that doesn't exist, and the parts with Kirito and Asuna makes me cringe. That is the most ...
