    1st season epic. 2nd not so much
    when i watched the 1st season i was in awe. it was amazing. character development was amazing, tho i do admit the time skip was quite annoying, but story was epic. so when season 2 came out i thought it was going to be even better, unfortunately not. its good, but not as good. quit slow and action scenes were boring. only giving it 5 stars because of season 1. season 2 is worth 3

    The Story (Season 1)
    It is based on a world where VR (virtual Reality) has been made real and SAO is the first game to truly use this technology to create a full immerse game and with only 10000 copies available a VERY sought after game.

    The series follows the main hero Kirito, the Black Swordman who later on you find out he is also a 'SOLO' Player and labled as a Beater(Beta Tester/Cheaters).

    Seems the first ...

    One of the best shows in a long time
    This series has everything a amazing show need; amazing story, well built rounded characters, strong emotional ties, love interests, great action, and amazing music. I truly can't get enough of SAO. I really hope that this series continues to grow and that it stays around for a good long time.

    What happened to this show
    The first 14 episodes of SAO (Aincrad Arc) were great with good characters and a great plot I would highly recommend it. However, after the Aincrad Arc this show really goes down hill and SAO II continues the trend. The show just seems so bland and ordinary, the art is done well but beyond that there really isn't that much to say about it. The writers really need to do their best to turn things ...

    Decent art, very generic characters and story.
    A lot of anime can be derivative but few go out of there way to be as derivative and uninteresting as SAO. Almost all the characters fall in love with a gary stu character named Kirito that does always what you expect and gets praised for it as if it is something out of this world. The storytelling structure makes it seem like it wasn't planned and will often seem like it has it's own fillers ...

    Sword Art Online I Review
    This was an amazing anime, this was i believe the 3rd anime that i've completed and it definitely got me into anime even more. At first i was confused as there is essentially 2 different stories or arcs in the first season.I like the first arc the most out of the two. It was very interesting and kept me eager to see what happens next. I do think that there is a tad excess of romance in the story ...

    Oh my word. Where to start on this let down.
    0/10 would kill myself if I had to watch again. I guess this is just an unpopular opinion apparently based on all other reviews. There are literally no redeeming factors for this show. Terrible character development, terrible characters overall (except kirito and Death Gun ), they literally invented a scenario that never happened in Sao season 1 as the main plot point. Nothing but insanely ...

    Amazing and Meh but.....
    Sword Art Online is an exceptional show. I Really enjoyed this show, and now with Season 2, still am enjoying it. The first half of Season 1 was almost perfect, The second half some people hated. I didn't hate the second half of Season 1 but I was disappointed by it because I know that this show can do better. When Season 2 came along I feel like this show redeemed itself. Sword Art Online has ...

    Best Anime In My Opinion <3 Asuna
    Never really watched too much anime because I didn't find it as interesting as other people but when I watched Sword Art Online I became addicted to it and couldn't stop watching. I'm mostly talking for season 1 because I think they did an extremely good job on it. Season 2 on the other hand wasn't as intense and didn't connect to me as much as season 1. Asuna <3
