    Don't let ANYTHING stop you from watching this show.
    I originally finished this series two years ago but continuously find myself returning to rewatch it's genius plot and admirable characters. I have recently been reading a few reviews of SAO out of my own curiosity and want to clarify somethings for anyone debating whether to watch this one-of-a-kind anime.

    Yes; it has it's flukes and flaws and things that need to be altered, but no anime is ...

    Not perfect, but overly criticized for small-minded reasons
    Most reviews I have read show either unchecked praise or a string of attacks on various parts of the show, especially the second story arc. I think the reason for this is that the story evolved over time as the characters developed in positive direction. This disappointed fans who liked the dark, psychological exploration of the main character Kirito which characterized the first few episodes. As ...

    decent story.. Absolutely great ending
    I will say that the GGO story was a decent follow and was not a disappointment at the least. That being said, the 1st time i watched i decided not to follow through with the whole series. Boy was that a mistake. After watching it again (the whole way) that is till episode 24 and 24 minutes and 40 seconds. If you dont follow till that point you really cant say your an SAO fan. Also if you dont shed ...

    Goes from average to terrible
    In the beginning SOA is alright. It's watchable and even has some enjoyable parts, but as the show goes on the flaws become more pronounced and the show goes down hill to the point where for me it became unwatchable. Where it becomes unwatchable for you may be different, but once it starts going down it's a race to the bottom.

    Without revealing too much about the story the strongest part of the ...

    First half of the first season is great... I probably could have skipped the rest.
    Five stars for the first half of season one (Aincrad), but I'm being generous with 4 stars overall for both seasons.

    So, the first half of the first season? Totally adored it. I love the fantasy/adventure/romance mixture. Loved that Asuna can kick butt, and loved the character growth from Kirito throughout. I wanted them to escape SAO, but didn't want the show to end.

    The second half? Meh. ...

    Definitely a great bridge anime
    There's no denying it, the concept for this anime honestly broke barriers, there's been so many animes sprouting up that're MMO / VR based due to the popularity of SAO.

    The relationships in this series are super captivating and tug your heartstrings whilst you watch and the art is excellent.

    It's safe to assume that most anime watchers are also gamers, the concept of a VR that you literally ...

    WOW How is this show so good
    This show got me hooked from episode 60, I absolutely love it. This show made me excited to really get into the genre of VRMMORPGs. It has helped me go through my life as a transgender apache attack alien that does not eat water. I love this show because of how great the story and romance is.

    So much potential...
    Okay, SAO 1 was fantastic. I still remember how I felt that very first episode when our heroes get stuck in the game. I was like, "wow". The entire first season of the show was so good - from the characters, to the story, to the animation. Beautiful and well executed.

    I was so excited for SAO II, mainly because I loved SAO I so much. And maybe I hyped it up too much in my mind, or I just ...
