    This is the best anime I've seen
    I love the story of this anime, and the relationship between kirito and asuna and ever since then its been my otp. Plus it really hooked me in like no other anime, like attack on titan, or cowboy bebop. But the thing I hate the most is that so many people hate on this anime. Sure its not perfect and has some flaws, but it's so good and it has gotten me attached to a lot of other anime. And its ...

    Roughly 14 Episodes of decent premise fallowed by a fat continuous load of samey Isekai dribble
    As it stands now, the only time I enjoyed this series was during the Alfheim arc. And that's not because some reviewer or something told me everything else was trash. I got to episode 14 and looked at how many more were left in the season, and unintentionally blurted out loud "What the hell?" So I did some research and learned that essentially this whole Kirito X Asuna things resolution was just ...

    Do you dare join the game of SAO?
    SAO is one of my favorites of the current anime series. It is fast paced, the characters are really awesome and you want them to win.
    However it does not go without its faults. While the anime is just an awesome to watch, the romantic relationship between Kirito and Asuna in the beginning is just way to forced and is a bit awkward since the are enemies one episode and getting ...

    Sequels can kill a show
    Ok, this was the first show that I can remember watching on Crunchyroll. It was also one of the first few animes that I watched to the end that was more than twelve episodes. My first impression of someone who had little anime knowledge was: "This is a cool concept and it is interesting!" Now I have watched way to many different shows, so as someone with a much greater knowledge of what anime ...

    Its been a while since I watched it
    So let me tell you about this anime. It's a cool anime at first, and then drags on. Some friends of mine often make fun of me because I watched this show when I could have watched "Attack on Titan" or "One Piece". Instead, another friend of mine showed me this show and I like it but it has problems.

    So it starts cool at around Season one ep 1-5, then after that it goes a bit long, but ...

    Great series with greater potential.
    I feel that SAO is in what it entails, a psychologically and emotionally, very interesting adventure. It touches many subjects, and handles them in many different and unique ways, situations of terror, conflict and death are not uncommon in the show. But the show also tends to "soften" to pleasant affairs and friendship. However I also feel a certain ambivalence - as the show progresses it ...

    I am rewatching SAO for the 3rd time!
    Im writing this review because I am about to start SAO again for the 3rd time. SAO is my all time favorite anime for its amazing concept. You will heard a lot of peoples saying its overrated but there is a reason for it. If you haven't watched it yet, you should.

    Great but incredibly lost potential.
    Sword art online began as one of the most engaging anime I have ever watched. Episode 1 was hook line and sinker without so much as flinching. It kept you interested in what was happening, gave you interesting characters, an "unknown" villain, an engaging plot, a likable ally in Ryo, and ended on the mark of "the beginning of an adventure"

    But then what happened? Every episode was suddenly a ...

    Log Horizon and Overlord are both better.
    I tried to watch it as a bet but the money to win wasn't enough, so now I've lost 6 hours of my life and $50 thanks to this show. On that note, Digibro does a better job of explaining why this is a terrible show in an hour long video than I'll be able to do in one sitting. So, here's a link to his video.

    Good, but collapses later on
    I think that the second storyline isn't too terrible, it's certainly needed, but it's not really up to par with the first storyline, which is utterly captivating and emotional. Gone is the in-depth character development, and here is the unneeded harem of sorts. Doesn't hurt my enjoyment too much though, as it's still pretty damn intriguing.

    The third storyline... some of the most boring anime ...
