    Better than you might think.
    SAO may not be a great show all the time, like the fact that kirito is just a blank character at the start, with no real personality, but as you go along and progress with the show you can see it developing and getting better and better with time, and it's romance is better than it's main plot sometimes in my opinion. I would greatly recommend you to watch this show for those reasons and there is ...

    Some Issues but overall great
    The only issue I have is that I feel like the first Arc in season one was rushed. There was so much potential in that one arc. They did improve it when it came to ALO and GGO by taking more time with each story in order for better character development. I am very excited for season three to come out.

    More a set of shows than one thing at this point
    I think each of the shows/arcs in the SAO series works well, and I hope they come back to tell new stories branching off the main story.

    The initial arc, that focuses on "Real World" threat that's trapping all the players is great, and I think the romance there is one of the most heartfelt in anime. I like the characters transitioning to the new games, and the gunplay-based game is a fun ...

    Truly a Work of Art, Loved every second of it!
    At first, I came to watch this anime to see how good it was. A lot of people I know saying "It was so bad" blah blah blah. But I personally loved it. I was super into the story and the concept of being trapped in Aincrad and trying to beat SAO to escape to the real world. I loved how that whole thing made me fall in love with the characters and was hoping Kirito would rescue Asuna at the end of ...

    Meh, great premise, lackluster writing, great animation
    With a great premise, this shows disappoints with it's bad pacing and writing.

    The first arc technically ends too soon, but the writing wasn't great so they probably didn't miss any points. Second arc is meh and goes full "Main Character is invincible and perf, all the girls love him." Third arc is, IMO, uses a cheap plotline to toy with the viewers feelings.

    Animation is good, soundtrack ...

    Fun, but very flawed
    Season 1 only
    Pros
    - Cool concept
    - Great animation and art
    - Good Fight scene, might not be well-choreographed but very pretty and fun to look at.
    - Great soundtrack done by yuki kajura
    Cons
    - The story in the first arc is somewhat alright before drops down to meh at the fairy dance arc.
    - The main protagonist kirito almost looked like a good character until episode 4 of season 1 where he ...

    Worst anime ever and i have reasons so dont mistake me for a regular SAO hater
    The fact that kiritos cousin wanted to date him was stupid glad thats gone! but the fact kirito became a gender bender made no sense, was it so important to the writer that kirito is now a trap? But ignoring that the story of ggo was worse than my last roblox role play!!! and kirito using a lightsaber to cut bullets in half seemed cool at first was justt stupid and the rebellious ptsd girl not ...

    Good the first time around
    When I first watched this anime I thought it was amazing but after my 4th/5th time rewatching the series, I think it's bad. Then again... I watched it 4 or 5 times over so that must mean that it's pretty darn good. I like the animation and idea behind the anime but much prefer a focus on game mechanics like log horizon or something. Highly recommend watching though.

    Extremely overrated. I didn't hate it, though.
    I am giving it two stars, because I went into it expecting something just.. out of this world. And I got an OK anime, it did not even get close to living up to the hype.


    The first arc was just OK. It got to decent in the next ones to come, though it does start to baffle me when Kirito stops giving Asuna so much attention buuuuut whatever. That's cool too.
    The first season was so wrapped up ...
