    This is my favourite anime
    I know that a ton of people give this so much criticism but i think it is fantastic....if you like good anime then this is a show for you The first arc is just fantastic, the second one doesnt follow up to the same hype as the first. The second season just fantastic over all.

    Best Show I've Ever Seen!
    Sword Art Online's plot centers around a near future in which a full dive Virtual Reality Massively Multiplayer Online Role-Playing Game(VRMMORPG) is created. The simulation is beautiful and certainly fuels the imagination of gamers. Kirito, the protagonist, beta-tested this game and tries it out on its release. Soon, he learns he can't log out and the only way out, is to beat the game! Also, if ...

    Concepts, the anime.
    The ideas for this show are great but the lack of character development, and the abundance of fan service with way too many unnecessary side characters that have little weight in the show mixed with the cheep laugh here and there is disappointing. Sure they do things well here and there, like animation, research, and small things that spice up the show, but overall it was not the most compelling ...

    Close but not Quite!
    I was quite wary when I found out that they changed directors for the second season, and more or less I was right in feeling so. The show tried to regain the tension of "you die in the game, you die for real" tone that the previous season had, and for a little while it did. Unfortunately, when the culprits' identities were unveiled the investigation leading up to it was very longwinded and tends ...

    My new favorite show.
    It's been a few years since I found anime I really got into like this. I am emotionally and mentally invested into this show. It has a great story line, deep characters, incredible detail, and obviously a lot of thought went into everything. This show is able to keep my attention at all times which is impressive because I have a terrible attention span.

    SAO & The Downfall
    Sword Art really hit me on so many levels, I really didn't know what to do at first. It touched on a little bit of everything and it did it damn well. There was no beating around the bush there was only straight up good content and no filler, and if there was filler it was good back story on characters that were important to know about (which some people consider back story filler, however I do ...

    This is a must see show!!!
    What a great show! It incorporates all the factors of game life and put them into an anime! It is brilliant! The characters are phenomenal, the graphics are great and the animation is simply stunning. If you have not seen this show yet, you really need to!

    Great anime and kind of changed direction (in a good way in my honest opinion)
    Sword Art Online starts of quite good at introducing the characters and story. After the first arc and moving onto the Alfheim Online, it still held on in it's way. Overall lots of action in first season. Now heading over to Sword Art Online II, now that is different and I can see why some viewers did not get their expectations met. We got a whole new world now, using firearms, ...

    A okay anime if you're looking for something short
    The show was doing great in the beginning but it turned into a romance anime during episode 5-6. Which made a lot of people angry. Overall the anime has great animation and short story even though the time skip is ridiculous I mean a two year time skip in middle of the story.

    This is for the first season
    I'm actually giving this first season 4 stars. The reason is when you start it you can't stop. The first episode is one of the best episodes to anime ever. That's what got me to want to watch this show. Now, I will say there's not much MMORPG in the show but while you watch it you really don't care. And, spoiler alert, there's a second half to this season that not everybody is going to be happy ...
