    One of the best anime series
    This is a pretty good show if you like playing MMOs, want to one day be able to play in MMOs like Megaman style, and if you enjoy anime. The anime really captures you, and keeps you watching even when the action is slow. Though, towards the end, in SAO II, ep 20 onwards, the show ends up being dulled a little.

    I was expecting more.
    DISCLAIMER: As a preface, I'd like to say I am in no way an expert on ANYTHING, so please take this review with a grain of salt. . .

    Ok, I've watched the first 6 episodes of Sword Art Online (The first season).

    I had high expectations after watching the first 2 episodes. I figured for sure I was in for a very progressive storyline, with interesting character development and plot.

    What is there to say about SAO [ Spoilers ]
    Sword Art Online began with such an Amazing season, along with the game of the name fitting well with the anime title. The first season had everything, love, action, deaths, shock.. it was well written indeed, but then when the second season came out... it seemed... well, repetitive, it seemed that the writters had tried to do the same thing with SAO expect it didn't work well, I mean I must admit ...

    Two Years Worth of Semen Made a Glopping Noise
    Lets get this out of the way! The first episode of Sword Art Online was actually really good. It laid the foundations to what could have been such an amazing show about survival in a virtual world... Unfortunately, everything after episode 2 is nothing short of a disastrous train wreck as the show immediately abandons its early themes.

    The writing of this show is just absolutely horrid. Kirito ...

  • I liked it....sort of
    The first series is a MUST see. However, for me, after that things turned for the worst. At first it just seemed like the series was changing for the sake of prolonging it. Then after a while it seemed rushed and overall I didn't like the ending. Mostly because it wasn't happy. Anyways watch it and form your own opinion.

    Sword Art Online: Too Many Haters, Worth Checking Out
    Sword Art Online unfortunately falls under the category of shows that are incredibly popular and hyped upon release so it falls under extreme scrutiny and end up being under appreciated. While there are some issues with continuity in the beginning of the series with massive time skips and while the show turns into a romance mid season 1 which some people disliked expecting more of an action focus ...

    Sword Art Online is the best anime in the world!
    Sword Art Online II is a really great anime and it's one of my favourites. SAO has a lot of happy, sad funny and breathtaking moments with awesome characters and weapons and the episodes are soooooo great that I could just watch them again and again.

    Just a Blunt Review: Sword Art Online
    When going into Sword Art Online you either come out loving it or hating it with a passion, rarely in the middle. I for one hate it to hell, but not to say it doesn't have any merits. Quite a shame because it has a really interesting premise, but fails to capitalize on said premise with mindless Pokemon style "let's help every person I meet" pandering. It's a flawed piece of work and Reki Kawahara ...

    all the right elements for a great anime series
    This review is only for SOA 1, not part 2.

    I bit of action, emotion, humor, sadness, light, and dark. I truly enjoyed SOA 1.

    A friend introduced me, and I must admit that I haven't been this captivated by an anime since Elfen Lied. Now this is no where near as dark, but it has a profound effect on you nonetheless.

    The concept of the story alone is interesting and unique, especially to ...
