    Kinda overrated a bit.
    I'd rather put it at something like 3.5 but since most reviews end up being 4 or 5 stars I'm rounding it down to balance it out. Sure, I enjoyed it. I'd even go so far as to say it was pretty good. I just think that looking back on it there were times when I was really into it and other times best described as "meh".
    It's worth watching, but it's not among one of my favourites.

    Sadly for how much I loved it in the beginning, I can only give it 3
    I absolutely loved the first portion of the show, the premise was intriguing and was taken in a rather well thought out way. Then there was the ridiculousness of him becoming literally invincible around the fourth episode, to my mind it seemed reasonable, any gamer can tell you beginning a new game is rough, but give it a week or two and you will get the hang of things and it gets easier, and ...

    Action packed and Emotional appeal
    This has to be the most future/modern anime I've seen that actually kinda relates to the watcher since the watcher is actually a gamer which takes it to a whole new level. This anime has been a great one from beginning to end, has great plot and good character development. I highly recommend anyone to watch!

    Never even heard of a badass anime like this..
    YUP! Back in 2013, a friend of mines told me about watching SAO and I go "Hmm, I guess". After just seeing the first episode, Holy crap..it was soo good. Had to re-watch the first episode again too fully understand this show. So in love with the story line and the main characters. The first series is definitely a watch and season 2 as well but I prefer sword action styles. Greatness!

    Bait and switch of disappointment
    This show starts out GREAT. Interesting storyline, good animation, amazing theme. I found myself hooked from episode 1. This show is amazing up to about episode 6, where you are suddenly confronted with a romantic sub-plot. 'Alright', I thought to myself, 'I'm sure it'll be fine'. However, by the end of the show, the romantic sub-plot becomes the plot, the MMO becomes superfluous, leaving generic ...

    Suddenly, this show is garbage
    I had ignored writing a review for this anime for some time, but I guess I just can't keep it in any longer. Or I just hate you all. Probably the latter.

    This show had a pretty good first season. Some things were a bit much but it did have the characters act in ways that made sense, for the most part. Then season 2 came along, a strong ending but oh dear god suddenly the show just turned in to ...

    Great anime but had much more potential.
    Sword Art Online was my very first anime I had ever watched, and I was absolutely in love with it. This anime is any gamer's dream, with the main character being a very skilled player and all the girls chasing after him, which really makes the show appeal to that audience. I watched the whole anime in a day because of how engaging it was, and the suspense of the show really kept you watching. ...

    Great anime with very little problems
    Sao is one of the greatest animes of all time. It has great character development, a great storyline, awesome characters that you can get really attached to, and very realistic ideas of how the NerveGear actually works, so much that people are really trying to develop a real one. The future year of 2022 is very accurate too, there aren't robots that do every little thing in the world for them, and ...

    First season is great
    HI,

    I've listen to the first season and was really interested. When I got to the second season I got myself to think how much great it could have been to continue in the same game with more details and more hard time for Kirito. Seems the game concluded to fast.

    SAO- A show that could have been more...
    I know what your thinking: "But SAO was great! How was it missing anything? It is my favorite anime of all times!!!!!!!". And to be honest, SAO is great. In fact, I think the whole idea of locking players in a virtual world (aka Video Game aka VRMMORPG) is incredibly brilliant. It caters to the gamer's who watch Anime, which is a huge fraction of the Anime watching pie, one could safely say. And ...
