    ONE OF THE BEST ANIMES EVER TO EXIST
    SAO is a very entertaining show to watch and has a great plot even if they are just going after random items in the game or events, it can be(somewhat or very) sad at times, but it pulls the characters together and for those who have already watched it, you can never, never, get enough of you know who's romance <3 if u dont watch SAO you are missing out on a great emotional roller ...

    ALMOST one of the best anime ever.
    UGH. I really really really wanted to like this show. Every one of my friends who is into anime recommended it. I love a lot of the shows Aniplex puts out. I love gore and action with good characters. I love swords and video games. I liked the stuck-in-a-game plot when .hack did it and I liked it here. But we couldn't finish the series and I'm not interested in any future seasons.

    There's a lot ...

    One of my favorites so far.
    I am a gamer, so naturally, when I read about this anime, I had to watch it. I've enjoyed it so much that it led me to watching Log Horizon as well. Some people have been complaining that they didn't like season two as much. I can't understand why. I thought the GGO part was amazing. Maybe because I'm a woman and the feely stuff was pretty heavy in season two? Either way the entire show was ...

    I just cant stand it
    Overly emotional children pretending to be "grown up", and I just cant stand the main characters personality, and a few others for that matter. Might have been better if every character was a decade older.. or I was a decade younger, who knows?.. Good animation and intriguing premise saves it from a 1 star review, but the absolutely terrible characters ruined it for me. While this anime was ...

    great, deep story line. and character development
    this anime is great. the story line is very hooking with multiple vrmmo games that are being played. and the characters so lots of change from when they started sao. but some parts can get boring but the action makes up for it. other than that, this is one of my favorite anime.

    A excellent fanatasy world anime!
    Excellent fantasy anime! I loved the first part of the first season the best. I loved the story line to it and everything. However the second part of the first season ended up getting a little weird at times which turned me off from it. I have yet to finish the second season but so far I am enjoying it. It's a different twist and take on the fantasy anime style. It's still fantasy anime but with a ...

    An alright anime series, doesn't deserve all the hate
    This series was fairly alright and doesn't deserve all of the hate it got for the second season. I agree that the first season was a whole lot better, but overall it was a nice medieval romantic anime that ended up turning into a fantasy gun fight pow-pow type. To sum it up, it went from very well to a bad version of Gurren Lagann.

    It's okay, but nothing spectacular.
    Watched the first season and only half of the second. I found myself more interested in playing a video game then watching these characters on screen play in a video game. The concept was intriguing, but the follow through was lacking. I was hoping that it would follow an Inception like story line where you are not aware of what is actually real, but sadly it just remained straight forward and ...

    This Is The Best Anime I Have Seen! 10/10
    First off this is by far the best anime I have seen.

    Story - First this story is very well written, it has is all. Action, Adventure, Drama, Romance, Comedy, and Suspense. The story never really gets boring, and its always evolving. (This is because there are 4 different arc's between two seasons, but they all follow one main story.) Now The 4 story arcs can feel very different, but this keeps ...

    It's like if .hack was boring.
    I have never seen a show get so much praise. No one has ever had anything bad to say about it and many defend it to the end. I am usually the one they're calling stupid for pointing out how it's boring and been done better before. The main character is perfect without any character, as is his love interest, and the fact that they're in a game is never used to the shows advantage. It might as well ...
