    Could’ve been great
    This show had the potential to be an an AMAZING ANIME but didn’t utilize it, even though it didn’t reach its potential it’s still one of my top anime’s and hopefully will improve on the previous mistakes and fix them, And ONLY THEN I will be able to credit it as one of my top all time favorite anime’s.

    Its Ok But the Second second season is trash
    I really liked the concept of the first season but the second season just made it bad with all the guns and stuff. I really liked seeing the sword action but they ruined it with guns. They brung different MMOs into this like GGO and stuff like that and i didnt like it at all.

    Compartmentalization Required
    Sword Art Online is definitely an anime you need to compartmentalize, as the different arcs have very different levels of quality. I am a huge fan of the Aincrad arc (if they had spread that arc over 20-25 episodes I would have given 5 stars regardless of anything else). I love the concept, and the main characters, and the things that annoy me about the Fairy Dance arc don't really show up all ...

    I would not recommend
    Yui is garbage and this anime would have been amazing if Asuna never existed. I did lik the concept of having guns instead of swords, but Jesus-kun just had to be a butt and use a sword in a gun mmo. It would have been way better if Kirito ended up with this female protaganist since she has more character build up

    Personally enjoyed it very much
    I understand that this anime may not be everyone's favourite but it's a good anime nonetheless the style does change and the plot does change a lot as you go on but its good. It has some very memorable characters that make the show very interesting, you may not like the show once you're halfway through the first season as it does change a fair amount but in my opinion its still good.

    Complete waste of time
    This show fails on every single way.
    The main character is a Gary Stu, going in a completely generic world.
    The characters actions were absolutely ridiculous at all times.
    The animation is only good because the characters talk about what they did, instead of what they did, 95% of the time.
    Only 2 characters have personality, and only one is tolerable.
    There are many terrible things with this ...

    A MUST WATCH ANIME!!!
    SAO was the FIRST anime I watched, and I'm glad it was. I probably would have never been interesting in anime if it weren't for SAO. Great beginner anime with a great story, and you feel an actual connection to the characters. Although I didn't really like the second half of season 2, SAO overall is an amazing title.

    Sword Art Online 1 Review
    Sword Art Online. It's a great anime, the reason I think about it this way is because of multiple reasons, I will only be mentioning one for now though: The originality of the game SAO. You are in what feels like an entirely new world, and you get to take out your weapon, fight the enemies, and beat all 100 floors. I personally don't know how Kayaba Akihiko was able to use microwaves to put ...

    Obsessed with this show
    I love everything about this Anime and Manga which can be found in the books/short novels on amazon. Everything good that has been said about this Anime is accurate. I even love the parts that others don't. So like I said I am obsessed and I hope more see SAO: Ordinal Scale movie and I can't wait for Season 3.

    Awesome Series, Need more episodes!
    Only just got into Sword Art Online (guess I'm about 4 years late?) but I am so happy I finally watched it. Great show, so many different themes. Its got action and adventure, its got romance, its got interesting plot twists that I found left me at the edge of my seat, and I couldn't press the next episode button fast enough. I cried, I laughed and sincerely enjoyed my way through the show. I ...
