    So much potential squandered.
    The first half of the first season is pretty good. The rest is a mix of boring/cringe worthy crap and some really cool scenes. The second season is the most bizarre thing I've seen in awhile. On one hand it forces this romance fantasy on the main characters younger sister and on the other it takes one of the strongest characters in the show and makes them a victim that has three scenes where she ...

    Really Good Anime but Definitely Over Hyped
    I watched this anime before knowing how much hype was surrounding it, so I didn't have any biased expectations. I throughly enjoyed this anime. I watched it twice, once subbed and then dubbed. Now I'm super excited for the new season!

    I've also started reading the light novels, which this is based on. Read them for a more in-depth view and for more details. The anime skips over a lot of ...

    Very Intriguing- Anyone can enjoy this!! ^^
    What ever genre of anime you like, SAO has it. Although you would think it is only action (which I am not a huge fan of myself), it is much more. It has a lot of romance as well, which is very important to the plot. It is very mysterious and suspenseful, as you do not know he reasons, thoughts, and motives behind the actions, and has a bit of horror in there as well. In fact, I'm not as big of an ...

    A must watch for everyone
    This anime is amazing. It has a great story line that reminds me of a virtual hunger games. It's packed with action and even some romance. The artwork is gorgeous and this anime in general keeps you hooked. Also, be prepared to cry. A lot. It's quite the emotional roller coaster and the plot twists will sometimes leave you bawling your eyes out. I really love this anime and I can't wait to see ...

    they are going to ruin shooters too.
    One shot fired by a sniper camping out the open with crotch view. She could have taken out the platoon. They were slow walking out in the open with zero cover. Laughfully they are pro gamers. What? No way. This anime does not under games or gamers like hacker just people rapidly typing on the keyboard. I like the SciFi elements. Just wish it was written by a gamer.

    The ratings speak for itself
    What more can I contribute to the ratings? If you are a gamer then this is the anime for you! Seriously, how haunting would it be to have no way out of a virtual world, accept doing the unimaginable and beating the game without dying? It's an emotional roller coaster with good character development.

    The first arc is by far my favorite. You have Asuna, the female lead who is independent, strong ...

    If you are going to watch an anime, WATCH THIS!!!
    This is the most amazing anime I have ever watched! The story is fun, the characters are great, and the combat is really cool. You grow with the characters, and you will become attached to them. Watching Sword Art Online was the best decision I ever made in terms of TV. Please please please watch it!!!
