    It's more of a guilty pleasure for me
    It's not the worst anime I've ever seen but it's not the best either. Many either adore or despise SAO but honestly I'm stuck somewhere in the middle. There are somethings that I like and somethings I don't like.

    SAO 1: The first half is pretty good IF you ignore it's plotholes. I love the action scenes, the music is amazing and the episodes can be very entertaining and at times kind of ...

    Sword art online Review
    All in all great Anime, Good Plot, Funny Characters, and good Fight Scenes To be Honest my Third Fav. Anime out of all of them (For now :3) Not to Mention The Emotion they put into this, and the all out Personality's they put into these Characters.. No one could do a Better Job. 5 Stars

    One of my favorites!
    Sword Art Online is easily one of my favorite anime's ever. The storylines have been consistently perfect and the characters are extremely dynamic. There are some weird and unnecessary moments and plot twists throughout the show but that's it. There are very few imperfections. I would rate this show 5/5

    It's a 10 out of 10 for me
    I'm not going to write an in-depth review but I would like to say how I feel about this anime. After finishing season two, I have gone and bought a few books from the series and will be starting them in wait for season three. I really enjoyed this series, from the funny moments to the more serious and tear jerking moments. This anime has been amazing for me which is why I'm giving it five stars. I ...

    Love With Skepticism
    I have heard a ton of extremely positive and extremely negative things about SAO. I am putting this out there: I don't necessarily agree with either side.
    When I watched SAO, I was hooked and I thought it was really great. The story was riveting, the characters were all unique and likable.
    I understand that SAO has its many criticisms and nitpicks, but I thought it was fantastic overall.
    I am ...

    Some of the worst characterization I've ever seen.
    If you find SAO interesting for any particular reason there's a handful of different animes that have done that same thing better. Go watch those instead. Literally the only defining aspects of the main character are that he is broody and is good at games and the harem that is the other characters are almost as bad.

    Deep, emotional story focusing on human drama
    First of all, let me say this: This is an anime about human drama in the context of virtual reality gaming. It is NOT about action, or comedy, or romance. Sure, it has some of all three, but what the show really does is to use these elements to address some of the sociological, psychological, and ethical issues of VR as well as its potential benefits and dangers. So if you're looking for a pure ...

    Blown away - where is season 3?
    Here goes my first review.

    I've seen SAO mentioned many times from around the time it first started airing to this day. Many comments said that the characters were shallow or that they just didn't enjoy the story.

    I'm glad I finally decided to give SAO a shot. Usually I've tried to give each anime around five episodes to get me interested and I'd drop the series if I didn't like it by that ...

    One of my favourite anime of all time.
    No in fact, scrap that. It IS my favourite anime of all time. I love the story, animation and characters in this anime although I do feel the GGO arc was slightly bland. Everything about this anime is just amazing. Although I see a lot of people recommending Log Horizon I feel this one is slightly better. And don't even get me started on how emotional i got at the end of season 2. OH GOD DON'T GET ...

    so much potential wasted. sad sad times
    the biggest problems with this show are the characters and the writing. the writing is beyond terrible, like it was written terribly on purpose. the writing gets better in s2 but it's just boring. how can your show be named SAO when only 1/4 of the show is about SAO? false advertisement...jk. the music is the single thing keeping this show afloat. without it, the show would fall flat. 10/10 ost. ...
