    Anime that I would recommend to beginners and frequent watchers alike!
    This show combines anime with video games as our hero, Kirito is trapped inside a game where the only way to escape is by beating the game but dying in the game means dying in the real world. I won't spoil the plot so just set aside some time and watch it all! (Season 2 coming July this year)

    Good start; bad light novel follow up.
    I enjoyed Sword Art Online; not Alfheim Online. Let's get this straight, I understand that they tried following up the light novels by making the anime in this way but I think this anime had MUCH more potential that just couldn't have shined. The anime had a strong beginning; enough to get you interested, but as it went on, all the episodes felt somewhat 'rushed' as they would not show how Kirito ...

    No need to say more.
    Yeah it's pretty sweet. A dream MMORPG, a dream MC, a dream girl. What else can I say? What is great about this show is that the first season arc is fantastic, but the second arc is almost "wincest". The show is called "SWORD ART ONLINE", but only for the first 14 episodes.... Alfheim isnt my favorite, but its still better than what's coming next....

    Surprise Surprise!!!
    Everything in this anime is a surprise. Deaths, betrayals, even the base of the anime itself! This is a great anime, and it is helped by the fact that viewers can tell their friends only one thing without revealing too much: It's a trap! Let's all just hope that this anime's second season is as good as the first one.

    Deep, Engaging, Emotional, 5 star
    This is possible my most favorite anime to date, if not it's definitely in the top 5. It's a great adventurous story, filled with action, depth, and lots of "feels"! I loved it and you will not regret trying it out. Give it at least 3-4 episodes before calling it quits.

    The anime in general.
    Where to begin? Have you ever think about the future of the technology with online games? Sword Art Online is the name of the game in which players can control their avatar by using a machine called Nerve Gear. But, the story follows Kirito and other players (such as: Asuna, Klein, and many others) fighting to stay alive in a game you can't log out because the creator is holding them inside the ...

    A little thing called pacing goes a long way
    I dont have many complaints with this anime other than the fact that the main character is a little to photogenic for a gamer, and that asuna goes from eyy Kirito haven't seen you in like a year to eyy Kirito lets spend our lives in a country cottage with our artificial intelligence kid in a matter of 6 episodes, and the whole fairy arc thing with the weird sister shipping and Mr. kidnapper ...

    Best Anime Ever !!!!
    This is the BEST ANIME I WOULD'VE EVER WATCH !!! I can't wait for GGO in April !
    I just don't know the exact date. Plz Reply and tell me exact date if you know ! Though Kirito looks like a girl in Gun Gale Online, which is the only thing I don't like.
    EVERYTHING ELSE IT"S GOOD !!!

    Very good really enjoyed it.
    The story has been done before about video game players being unable or forced into a game(btoom) and unable to log out or leave until they win the game or survive until someone else does and that's not a bad thing it's a matter of how well it's done and SAO does it very well with likable characters good animation and some well done fight scenes and a good romance and secondary characters. I ...

    The First Fourteen Episodes are Amazing
    The first fourteen episodes of this show will at times wrench your heart out and at times fill you with joy. Four or five episodes brought tears to my eyes. There are great action sequences, tragic losses, mysteries, and intense drama as we follow the protagonist Kiriko's character progression and budding romance with Asuna. Episode fourteen is the end of the first story arc, and when it ...
