    -CodyCommends Full Title Review.
    CodyCommends this anime (Season One) with a 5 out of 5 star review!

    This anime had me hyped since the first promotional video launched in 2012
    where I saw new upcoming anime at a local convention with my older bro...

    very very unique characters with a little bit of harem throughout the ...

    The comeback of (SAO)
    The second season of sword art online was a relief! after the second half of the first season i wasnt sure if they would redeam themselves. I am more than happy to be proven wrong about that. Season two started alittle slow but that was expected given the end of the first. Minus the fact that he is a girl when he enters gun gale it brings kirito back to his fighting instincts which made the first ...

    Great concept that was rushed and then repeated.
    I thought this show was amazing at first and thought they could really extend the story for years. However, they finished the story in one season and now it feels like it's the same plot over and over. The GGO arc is where I lost most interest. It was like 11 and 3/4 episodes of filler and a really quick sword fight. When there is some action, it's good. Anyone who says different just sucks ...

    Why you don't need to watch the whole thing
    Ok. So, if you haven't already watched it, you've probably at least heard of Sword Art Online. And I'll say, I still watch the new episodes that come out each week. If you really want to watch this show, with ABSOLUTELY ZERO disappointment, STOP WATCHING AT EPISODE 15. That part of the show is absolutely phenomenal. After episode 15, however, the show turns from a fight for survival to a ...

    Amazing at first, but now...
    (CAREFUL! There are SPOILERS in this. If you haven't fully watched the anime, DON'T continue to read.)

    I have to say, when this anime first came out I fell for it instantly. I loved the idea, the story, the characters, the action, and the fantasy world they were in. I also REALLY loved the fact that they were trapped and had a intense consequence for dying. This made the anime really ...

    Sword Art Online: Too UNREALISTIC
    I am sorry to say that I really disliked this anime. Now I really have bad feelings about playing games. I wish I had never got addicted to Sword Art Online 2. Why is everyone so crazy about this type of anime these days? It is too similar to No Game No Life, so it just gets a little boring.

    Somewhat Cliche'd Title of Sword Art Online
    As for as animes go, this one has piqued my interests.

    Around the year 2012, I was gradually entering the anime fanbase, starting to get used to these types of animations. And I've heard a particular title being mentioned more than once, and this title was "Sword Art Online" I've decided to give it a shot as I felt I had nothing really to lose. The first episode instantly got me, and I found ...

    Overrated and unworthy of its attention
    As someone who have watched a lot of anime (may not be as much as some), I never turn anime away and always take a shot at it, if not completing the show.I usually go through a procedure of trial of around 4-6 episode to decide whether I want to continue watching the show.

    Sword art Online (Original 13) was one of the show that passed the trial period, with flying colour in a matter of ...

    Well, this is my favorite anime of all time
    If you like swordplay, RPGs of any kind, and anime (Of course you love anime), then this will be the most amazing, mind blowing, emotional, action packed thing you'll ever set your little mortal eyes on... 500/5 500% would spend life watching again, if I had a second.

    5 star potential, ends up normal.
    Since a lot of current generations played MMOs, the potential of SAO series is just spot on and relatively fresh idea, and this plot direction had the potential of 5 star great anime of all time. However, above all flaws, the main direction and the tone of the show quickly changed to average 'fan-service', off-plot anime that we all saw happening to other great animes, and this was fatal blow to ...
