    Strong until the second arc
    First, let me start off by saying I will be heavily critiquing the later episodes.

    I watched this with high expectations, all my friends had hyped it up telling me how great it was. Up until about episode 13, I was enjoying it, thinking it was a great show. However, after it continued toward the end, it felt like it began to change. The action and some other aspects still stayed quite strong, ...

    A Good Kickoff for New Anime Watchers
    Starts off well, and once you know where the show is coming from, it's more enjoyable than at first glance. The first half could've used more episodes, but that's my opinion.

    The animation, especially in the action scenes, is nothing below what I'd expect from A-1 Pictures. I'm personally attached to this show since it served as my gateway to all the anime I watch today.

    Definitely worth a ...

    Entertaining, but not technically good
    I have complicated feelings for Sword Art Online. I found it entertaining and mostly fun, but there's also just so much wrong with it...

    Before I got into what's wrong with it, I'll talk about its positives. Firstly, A-1's Pictures' animation is impressive, as it always is. It's always appealing to the eye and always seamless. The action is solid-- no shonen-style "talking while fighting/too ...

  • The Fascination Behind "Sword Art"
    I haphazardly fell upon this title while researching some images to reference from for an art project for school. Google searching "sword art" led me to this wonderful anime. I thought it strange to see anime popping up in results so I decided to research it as well.
    I have not seen another anime adaption of this similar subject via the "stuck in an internet game", which I'm supposing is what the ...

    Good anime [Must Watch]
    I myself honestly had a edge of my seat moment through this whole season anime! The plot was great the story was great and the characters aren't forgettable like some action anime! I really love this anime and im ready for the next chapter kirito [the main character] was great although at times his "emo" additude just got completely erased at the beginning since he had joined a guild and such. ...

    Amazing! Really great story!
    Simply one of the best animes I have ever watched. The story really makes you feel feels. No other anime has ever made me feel like this before. The first half of the season is definitely better than the second half, but all in all its absolutely amazing. I can't wait for new content to come out!

  • An Amazing Adventure!
    Sword Art Online instantly became one of my favorite animes of this decade. The animation quality is beautiful, the plotline is harrowing, and I love the growth seen in all the characters.
    Season 1 by itself is one of the most beautiful stories of bravery and love that I have ever been able to watch. I definitely recommend Season 1 as a MUST WATCH.
    Season 2? It's just fun. Straightup FUN. Not ...

    Superb and stunning, definitely worth watching
    It took me a while to make up my mind and watch this. I don't really know why. I may have been biased, because of the other MMORPG-style anime I've watched so far. Most of them, laid-back, relaxing and easy to view and comprehend. Probably that's because of the very nature of the MMORPGs, games which allow you to travel to an alternate reality,with an entire world to profit from, yet having ...

    If you love MMO's, you'll love this anime.
    Any long time fan of the MMO genre will love this anime, because there isn't one of us that hasn't wished or at least thought about this possibility. While the anime itself may not have broken any new ground, the art, animation, and characters were done quite well.

    I was an instant fan of this anime and I'd personally love to see a side arc or movie consisting of the story behind the skipped ...
