    Review on Sword Art Online
    This anime, whether you like it or not, definitely stood out in 2012. BE WARNED: THIS MAY CONTAIN SOME PERSONAL BIAS, AS MUCH AS I TRIED NOT TO INCLUDE IT. So with that out of the way, I'll start with the flaws. This show had incredible potential, for a long running anime, and I'm still disappointed writing this that it isn't. Also, can't forget the cliches. ( Which sometimes isn't ...

    Great show - love the characters
    Sword Art Online is easily my favorite TV show of all time. The characters are great and have a lot of personality. The first season was definitely the best, although the second one is also great. I love how the show fits almost 3 years into only 30 episodes, and does it well. Overall this show definitely earned 5 stars.

    Perfect for me, but not for everyone
    Perfect for me... Not for everyone. Just enough romance to be touching, just enough feels to be satisfying, enough action to love it, and a strong female lead that's not manly but not 2nd place to the male. The various arcs need to be taken together to get the full effect, but the end (so far) was as satisfying as the beginning.

    SAO is an awesome anime and loving the second season
    I loved the first season of SAO and I am loving the Second season even more. I read the light novels and loved the Mother Rosario and GGO and Excalibur arcs and now getting to see the anime for those three arcs is just completely awesome for me and I can't wait to see more SAO episodes and I hope that season 3 comes along soon.

    So much YAAAAAAAAAS!
    Although this anime has many mixed opinions (either you put this on a shrine, or you do things worse than what the Angry Video-Game Nerd would do to a bad NES title), I personally feel like this anime is one of the best, because it shows what happens when a disaster strikes, and the healing/reconnecting process that follows. The first arc shows a disaster strike and overcoming it, and the second ...

    Great Start: Bad End
    Started out with a bang. Amazing animation. fantastic fights, good story, good characters and ok pacing.

    Then we get to season 2 ‘ALO’ a bit underwhelming; but still enjoyable.

    Then we get to season 3 ‘GGO’: bad story, annoying characters, just boring and generic. GGO's only redeeming quality are the fights; which are great.

    PS the female lead Asuna starts out as an awesome bad ass. ...

    Holy Smokes, I'm watching this again!
    This anime was amazing! A very cool premise drew me in and the story arcs were quite good, I will have to watch it again to pick up what I missed or forgot! I like how they pulled so many characters together and used them to tell stories about what Virtual Reality MMOs could be like! It makes me wish we had something like this in real life, minus the obvious downside I won't mention for any who ...

    Great, but has a flaw
    I thought that Sword Art Online (SAO) was a very good idea for a very good anime. The characters were well rounded and the animation was decent. It was suspenseful, funny, action packed, and romantic at the same time. However, the reason I gave this anime only 4 stars was because of timing. They were only in the game for 14 episodes, and we missed lots of events, like Floor 67. If they had the ...
