    Amazing. 11/10, way too great
    I think Sword Art Online is absolutely amazing.

    I think it's amazing, in that it gathered such a large fanbase with such flat characters (breast-wise and personality-wise) and terrible plotlines. How could you even watch the Alfheim arc without cringing and wishing that Kirito would just kill Asuna and then himself afterwards to save us all the suffering. The most awe I felt was how stupid ...

    Did this go down hill or what
    Christ. I didn't think a show could so soundly undermine what made it great in the beginning, but SAO managed. After initially setting a theme of horror and fear, a classic "anyone can die" feeling in the first few episodes, this is almost immediately undermined. People stop dying, and so the stakes of the story, what is supposed to make up care, are gone. I don't even want to talk about the story ...

    If Only They Had Done It a Bit Different
    This is an entertaining show. No doubt about that. I really like the art style and the music. The premise of the first arc is awesome. The show had so much potential for greatness, and it has become immensely popular.

    Still, I have some problems with it, starting with the main character. He's just too good. It removes the suspense when he just breaks the rules at will. He draws a harem to ...

    Pretty to look at, but that's about it.
    The first half of the first season was fun to watch, if somewhat clichéd. It's hard to explain without any spoilers why it later failed, but suffice to say it violated everything it had established in the first story arc, thereby undermining any potential for tension in the story. Even if you can overlook the enormous storytelling flaws, the protagonist is completely unlikable.

    Easily one of the most compelling stories I've seen in a while.
    Highly recommend this show. I made a pass through both season 1 and 2 subbed, and loved it. Currently starting the English dubbed version of season 1, and I don't find the voice acting as good as the Japanese voice talent. So I would recommend going through first as subtitled.

    Not only is the action great, but the story really pulls at your heart-strings in many episodes. I find the series ...

    its pretty good... right?
    i think this is a good show. the only problem is that parts of it are a bit unbelievable. if you really want to enjoy this show, you need to be able to say "oh he did that? OK sure lets go with it" to absolutely EVERYTHING that happens, no matter how ridiculous it seems. if you have problems with suspension of belief, this show is probably not for you. especially if you go looking for the ...

    I loved this Anime (1 and 2)
    I know there are a lot of people who don't like this anime (or so it seems from looking on the internet) but this was one of my first Anime's I watched on CR. I really.. really enjoyed it. One and two did a very good job at doing the "stuck in a game" anime. I like the fighting and also the characters / story. They were very in-depth and made you feel for them. If I had to pick a favorite I would ...

    Another way too strong main character
    Well Kiroto is the boy that beats everybody's ass... just a bit too easily I must say. He is the stereotypical main character that gets the his powers from protecting his friends and loved ones.

    But the love between the main characters Kirito and Asuna is so cute I can't complain. At times I scream relationship advises at the screen, and hope that they would work on more of treir love. But ...

    Couldn't Stop Watching
    I was so entertained by this Anime. I was never bored...okay except maybe a couple of the cabin scenes...Cool storyline and awesome fight scenes though. Loved it! Shinon was a really awesome character. The animation was also pretty great. I wish there were more episodes
