    It's okay, but nothing spectacular.
    Watched the first season and only half of the second. I found myself more interested in playing a video game then watching these characters on screen play in a video game. The concept was intriguing, but the follow through was lacking. I was hoping that it would follow an Inception like story line where you are not aware of what is actually real, but sadly it just remained straight forward and ...

    This Is The Best Anime I Have Seen! 10/10
    Story - First this story is very well written, it has is all. Action, Adventure, Drama, Romance, Comedy, and Suspense. The story never really gets boring, and its always evolving. (This is because there are 4 different arc's between two seasons, but they all follow one main story.) Now The 4 story arcs can feel very different, but this keeps the show fresh. This is where it might be hit or miss ...

    It's like if .hack was boring.
    I have never seen a show get so much praise. No one has ever had anything bad to say about it and many defend it to the end. I am usually the one they're calling stupid for pointing out how it's boring and been done better before. The main character is perfect without any character, as is his love interest, and the fact that they're in a game is never used to the shows advantage. It might as well ...

    Uninteresting plot!..
    The animation is good but too good that make it bad. Too many over animation and somehow it seem slack off. The story is, somewhat slow, then spikes up to excitement. The build up isn't there. The story got something I called balance. I see the writer wants all character to stand up as they could, but that making em not standing up at all. Each story should have the main focus. and make some ...

    It's like eating McDonalds
    You know it's pump full of crap, yet you still eat it.SAO from a literary standpoint is not a very good show, the main character Kirito shows little to no characterization what so ever and the plot is riddle with holes. Kirito shows many mary sue traits right from the beginning to the series and performs several illogical actions that are use to pander to the wish fullfilment and self insert ...

    If this show dosen't have mixed opinions then IDK what does!
    I think that SAO is good. I'll admit it. There were moments where I would tear up but not cry. Its flawed but good. I'm almost done with the 1st arc, considering skipping the ALO arc but excited for the GGO arc because guns.

    Now onto the argument over SAO or Log Horizon.
    Can we please stop?! Why can't we just like both?
    Because I'm a gamer, I like to compare SAO and Log Horizon to Call of ...

    Sword Art Online Good Anime
    I'm not a huge SAO fan but the concept is excellent and the execution is pretty good as well. For anything negative I have to say about this anime I can say at least 2 positive things about it to off set the negative. That being said part 2 of season 1 and 2 (ALO parts) have both been disappointing to me and think it would have been a perfect 5 if it either stayed in SAO or ended after 25 ...

    Good Story, Great Action, Lots of Filler
    I really enjoyed the action and the environment. It was really well executed and very enjoyable to watch. My only issue is that this show has more filler than a 60 year old man's teeth. Half of the first season could be skipped without really missing anything important.

    If you enjoy fantasy themed environments and swordplay this is a fantastic option.

    SAO Ruined potential
    It started really good with an interesting video game theme. Then the show failed to make the characters interesting at all. Then Alfheim Online happened.

    The show will only disappoint you (if you're anything like me). 4/10 do not recommend.
    my review isn't long enough blah blah blah

    A Stunning, Exceptional Mix of Action and Romance
    Sword Art Online tells a heart-racing story about the human will to survive and to gain the power to be able to protect the people who are precious to them. This anime illustrates how love and friendship are our saviour and meaning through our burdensome lives. In a merciless, dangerous world where death is only one step away, the bonds we make are the anchors that keep us from drowning in the ...
