    This show is a trek into the mind of a 14-year-old boy's fantasy
    Let's just get this out of the way: this show is crap. To explain why this is in as few words as possible; Kirito, the protagonist. He's a dull, angsty teenager who, inside the worlds of VR games, is actually Jesus. This show is, if anything, an absolute void of dramatic tension, in terms of the viewer's concern for the main character's well-being. In other words, pretty ...

    So close, but so far
    Started great, but the first arc seemed to end to fast, the 2nd was somewhat interesting but compared to the first, it just wasn't as good. the 2nd seasons first arc was good, and i think it lasted about the right amount of time, but after that the show lost all meaning, the 2nd half of the 2nd season might as well not have been made

    Character quotas for review titles are stupid. SAO is not
    SAO is great, while the second arc of the first season is by far the weakest, even it is still quite enjoyable. Everything else though is just amazing. Apparently CR doesn't like brief reviews so I'll just kep typing here until such time that the character limit is reached! Ha I went over it.

    Bleach was better...
    When you compare the SAO anime and manga, the anime is cancer. I couldn't even finish the first half of the first season because of how much cancer I had already induced, SAO really stands for Super Autism Online, the story of how a boy is cyberbullied in an online video game. If you take any other review seriously and not mine, you deserve to have as much cancer as I have gotten from this. My ...

    The first anime that made me like anime.
    This show is very special to me, because it was the first one i watched and if I didn't watch this anime, I probably would not have started any other anime shows. My friend told me about it, and after watching the first 2 episodes I became addicted, and wanted more.

    Cheesiness Aside, I fell in Love with this whole "Stuck in a Game" Story Plot
    I'm not a fan of the cheesy anime, but this has just the right amount of humor and seriousness. I love the characters, like always. The plot also had me every time a new game came out. Although it did feel slightly repetitive. Aside from that, I love it when strangers somehow get together in groups to take on a final challenge.

    I have no idea why people enjoy this show
    Chances are you already know the plot to the first half. Sword Art Online is the hot new virtual reality MMORPG that only about 10,000 people can get on launch day. Unfortunately for them, logging onto SAO traps them inside the game, and the only way to leave is to beat all 100 floors of the in-game castle Aincrad. If any player dies in the game, the microwave technology in the VR headsets that ...

    Watch more than once
    So, I watched this show as they were coming out with episodes and thought it was absolutely epic! I have loved every season and arc as they came out. When I first watched the anime, I must say I was disappointed with the last arc of season 2. It just didn't seem to fit well with the show and even the time skips were not my favorite (after all, the best character to watch is Kirito. Am I right??) ...

    Fun & Interesting Sci-fi Anime
    SAO started off very strong because the stakes were at their highest at the beginning. The second season had a lot to live up to. I don't think it met the quality of the first season but that is a high bar in my opinion. I enjoyed the majority of the characters and their development. I hope to see more chapters in this series and am looking forward to the movie.
