    See for your self, [it's amazing(is not secretly influencing your decision)]
    the best way to judge this stellar anime is to see it for yourself. I'v talked to many people, almost all loved it, but not a single one found it fantastic for the same reason. I personally recommend it for these high points: KiritoXAsuna is cute, funny, and worth watching, It has extremely well done action sequence, Yui just in general, and it has a great sense of humor.

    Disappointing and boring
    I think I fell asleep during a few episodes because this series is so generic it's not even funny, the first season was good, just good, and the second season was terrible.
    Characters are generic, plot is predictable, there is no sense of fear or tension because they don't have a real risk of dying because Kirito is an OP mofo who cannot be stopped by anyone because plot, that's why. The death ...

    Season Wow and OMG!!
    Yes this series is too mainstream but that is because it is SOO GOOD!!!! both seasons are so amazing that your forced to give them both 5's but explain them differently.

    In season 1 it is a simple story about a game that trapped everyone who entered it in the game until they beat the boss. All the players were given a mirror that let them be shown as their true self. The first season is filled ...

    Fantastic Awesome Anime!
    SAO is compelling, imaginative, and a ball of entertainment. The arcs are great and rarely if ever disappoint. The action is superb as well. It could get sad but crying can be good for you. I would recommend this to anyone and if you like anime this is a must watch.

    Very good show, not to be missed!
    Sword Art Online is a very unique show, in regards to what the story revolves around: Video games. But, to label the games featured in the story, as just video games, is insulting. 'Full dive' technology allows the characters to take full control of their avatar, virtually. Their bodies go into sleep mode, and they completely control their avatars using their minds. It provides an interesting ...

    In the Top 25 Anime of all time. Must witness.
    Although the second season was spectacular... the first season still was the best In my opinion... I would definitely put SOA in my top 3 of anime, its so well written and the scenes are fantastic. It is a well balanced blend between plot twists and well thought out motions of super cool heroism.

    SAO 1 > SAO 2, and let me tell you why.
    The first season of Sword Art Online was one of the most exciting animes of it's season. It truly shined as an Anime in nearly every aspect. I could compliment SAO 1 all day, but I'm actually here to warn you to stay away from SAO 2.

    SAO 2 ruined the images of many of the characters in my mind. Kirito, the protagonist of the series, eventually softens up into the biggest spineless pussy the ...

    Just watch it. I promise you will NOT REGRET IT!
    This is by far my favorite anime. The action is sufficient and I'm not a romance kind of guy, but they put just enough to make this story tear jerking. I lost my man-card to the show. They show immediately pulls you in with the first episode and you will not want to stop watching. If your a person who loves MMO's, then you will be even more thrilled by this.
