    The most questionable direction any series has ever taken
    Here is the problem with Sword Art Online:

    The first few episodes that set up the world of SAO brace us for a show that will be about the players trapped inside this virutal-reality deathgame, working together to clear the game and see the light of day once again. This environment and plot direction is set up so well that to even entertain the idea of it changing becomes a joke worth laughing ...

    Sword Art Online is an amazing piece of work!
    This in my opinion is one of the best pieces of work ever done. I love everything about SAO, such as the amazing story, the characters, and the whole concept of the show/series. It will forever be apart of my life. The way love, hatred, anger, happiness and more emotions that are portrayed in this are just phenomenal, I find myself always smiling, sitting on the edge of my seat or tearing up, it ...

    2001st 5 star rating. Favorite anime for sure.
    Amazing anime, artwork is nothing less than beautiful, which is what i'd expect from SAO. Like the rest of the series it does start slow, but that's whats great bout it, it gives you an intro to the characters(backstories and such) which attach you to them. Once it picks up you'll be anxious for the next episode believe me.

    Very Good few problems *spoiler alert*
    I think the anime is doing great for the begging of the anime. Im just nit picking here. But i think they are introducing a few things a little 2 quickly. Like death gun i thought they would have had him meet kirito like around epi 12 not when they did. Then I was also expecting more when it came down to the fight between the two. I was expecting a big all battle to the death sorda thing and they ...

    This was one of the most amazing anime I've ever seen!
    ...for the first four episodes. Sword Art Online started out great. It presented good characters, an interesting premise, and an interesting struggle for the main character. But at some point it loses its way.
    It can't seem to figure out whether its an action, harem, romance, or slice of life. Honestly if they had kept the original love interest and focused more on the action aspect of the ...

    2000th 5 star, great show
    SAO is a great show, the plot is engaging, and well paced. Character development is best performed by Kirito, as it can come a little short with some of the other characters. SAO I was good, but I have a feeling SAO II will be better. Seeing Kirito out of his element is great

    nice to enjoy but...
    Nice to enjoy but the story isn't as deep as they make u think it is(Although it's a nice beginners drama). I think they made it so that the characters are appealing to the common new comers of anime dramas or of anime period. for example (although i admit that the main characters goes through some tough times) he has no dark side or uncontrollable fear that would stop him from doing something, ...

    Sword Art Online Review
    AWESOME, OUTSTANDING, no word literally can describe SAO. Asuna and Kirito show Ying and Yang love to me. Swords Art Online is now my #1 fav. its will take on awesome journeys that leave you to epic fights. Its very rare to get a badass girl like Asuna which i love, Kirito is aslways calm but then when he has to fight, he is a dude you dont wanna mess with.

    Just shy of greatness, but is redeeming itself!
    Now many people have watched Sword art online, and if your a fan you know about what people think about it. The first half of SAO (eps 1-14) we're indeed the best of the first season. The artwork was amazing, characters were alright, story was just a lil shy of greatness, and sound was some of the best. Now here comes the bad part... the second half of SAO (eps 15-25) now any fan can agree with ...

    Best Anime I've Ever SEEN!
    I never usually write reviews for any particular anime but this anime is well worth writing for! SAO is THE BEST anime I've seen ever. The setting of which the anime takes place is absolutely awesome, the story and artwork of the anime is mindblowing and the character development is spot on amazing. I love this anime and I guarantee that you will too.
