    IT IS A MUST WATCH!!
    THIS IS THE[u] BEST ANIME I HAVE EVER WATCHED. IT'S ADDICTIVE WITH A GREAT STORYLINE AND CHARACTERS THAT YOU JUST FALL IN LOVE WITH. TRY IT OUT SERIOUSLY!!!!!!!!! IT MAKES YOU WISH THAT THE REALITY THAT THEY ARE LIVING IN IS YOURS! THE SHIPS HAVE SAILED.

    Decent but Over Hyped
    Sword Art Online has become somewhat of a sensation overnight. There are reasons for this. The first episode is an incredible setup that gets you hooked immediately. Unfortunately, I do not feel that the show is able to deliver on the promising tone that the first episode sets.

    After the primary antagonist presents the primary struggle of trapping players inside a virtual reality video game, he ...

    Flawed in so many ways, and I don't care
    I really don't have any good, rational reasons to give SAO 5 stars. There are more flaws than I can count, but I love it anyway.

    Call the characters inconsistent or cliche, but I want to see what they do next. I want to get to know them. When they come on screen, I cheer.

    The pacing is inconsistent most of the time, and the ALO arc is just bad, but I can't wait for the next story. ...

    Sword Art Online Is Best Pony
    I love this entire series, even the GGO arc. I know a lot of people have problems with this show because it didn't revolve entirely around Aincrad and ditched it after season one, but watching the characters develop across multiple games was really interesting for me.

    I would totally support a series all about the crew in the new Aincrad though. Even if it didn't have a major villain for them ...

    Should I have expected this disappointment?
    Here's the thing: I thought the premise was pretty stupid from the outset, I really did. Somehow I managed to watch the whole thing without ever really enjoying any part of it. I normally don't do that. Usually, I'll stop watching a show halfway through if I'm not enjoying it, but for some reason I kept watching this one. I think maybe I kept expecting it to get better at some point, but after it ...

    Something for everyone
    SWO covers a little of everything, from romance to fast-paced action. The animation is fluid and the scenery is truly beautiful. I enjoyed season 1 and 2 equally since it's nice to have a change in setting from time to time. If you're looking for something that's easy to pick up with memorable characters, look no further.

    Awesome to the highest degree!!
    Absolutely amazing. I really love the texture of emotion woven into the overall theme of the series. This anime preaches the power of humankind over machines and the power of love over all things. Idk if you could ask a better series to watch than this. I only wish that the series had no end..

    Really liked this series
    I really enjoyed this serie, I watch Log Horizon first and thought it was pretty good. I think it's because the storytelling is so tight, not a huge amount of world building but enough to make a great story. I will say it took a while to get into maybe two or three episodes, but I watch for about 4-5 hours one night with no regrets. Great series looking forward to more, hopefully.

    Sword art Online - quickie 1/24/14
    Yes! Yeeees! Oh, let me taste your tears, Asuna!
    Mm, your tears are so yummy and sweet!
    Oh, the tears of unfathomable sadness! Yummy~

    In a world where series' like Harry Potter, or other real abhorrent fan-fiction tittles the likes of Twilight sells well enough for multiple sequels, it shouldn't be a surprise then, Sword Art Online's popularity skyrocketing that is. Pretty posters, ...
