    Has potential but also a lot of problems.
    So SAO's first season was great (first half really) however was let down on its second half of the first season. Asuna has been downgraded into a damsel in distress yet in the first half was a formidable and powerful woman. Kirito is an interesting protagonist.
    The series suffers from being a harem anime where all of the females just fall head over heals for the main male lead; Kirito (even his ...

    What I think about SAO
    It is pretty good. My friend made we watch, which is okay with me. The idea was wonderful,but... out of all the anime i've watched, this is the worst. The reason why is because the first half was AMAZING! But the second half was like a sprinter stopping for breath. Watch the first season and skip the 2nd. I haven't watched a lot of anime, so this isn't saying it's SO BAD. I've only watched 4. I ...

    Sword Art Online ended really fast
    I really love this show but there is one thing that kind of bothers me, the name of the show is Sword Art Online but only 25% of the series was actually about Sword Art Online. Most of the series was about Alfheim Online (Which I really liked tho). But, my favorite part was GGO (Gun Gale Online)!

    Fascinating! But does it hold up? Nope.
    I loved Sword Art Online when it debuted. The character design, voice acting, soundtrack, and even quite a bit of the animation filled me with joy. There was also an element of nostalgia from my days of watching and enjoying .hack//Sign.

    But does this new legacy of MMO anime hold up? Not really. The more I watch it, the more I realize that so much has gone fundamentally wrong with it. SAO's ...

    An anime worth watching!
    Despite all the hype over this anime and the huge flocks of people who will say this is great and superb and the other half who says this is overhyped and it's crap? I say it's worth watching.

    It's not 5/5 imo as there are animes out there that make better characters, stories, etc...but it's worth watching despite all that. I'd say watching even just the first season will be worth it and if you ...

    Mediocre. Could have been better.
    First of all this is NOT a review of the books or "manga" / visual novels or light novels, this is a review of the anime adaptation/ first season.
    The story sets up a great plot idea or well, great on paper ideas but falls short after the first episode.
    ||Main Plot||
    The whole show is supposed to be about a insanely, great gamer that has to finish the game and set everyone free from a world ...

    Bad, verging on mediocre.
    SAO is almost worth watching. Its many faults (ridiculous overpowered protagonist, clumsy exposition, inevitable harem, she's not technically his sister) are slightly tempered by its apparently accidental strengths (adequate art, relationship that actually goes somewhere, the Mother's Rosario arc.)

    Hard Review to Write.
    [3/5] So here it comes, reviewing in my opinion one of the most popular anime to ever come out, period. This is a show that you either love or hate. I fall in between. Firstly, this show has everything for everyone. It goes through every genre that I can think of and gives it viewers what they want. This is not a show to look super in depth with and if you do, it turns from entertaining to ...

    So this show was really popular huh? Can't imagine why.
    Heard the title alot and, saw it was highly rated and decided to look at it even though I'd heard mostly bad things. Should have guessed from the title but it turned out to be yet another WE'S TRAPPED IN MUH MMO animes.

    I'll give them props for actually trying to explain how such a thing could ever even occur with some SciFi backstory but it's an excuse so thin it may be worse than just dodging ...
