    Didn't live up to my expectations
    I feel like there was a lot of potential that was wasted. The anime started off really well and the plot was engaging, but it skipped a lot where there could have been plot and character development. Later on, it became less about the story and more about relationships (that began to look like a harem). Compared to all of the hype about it, I just expected a lot more from SAO.

    One of the industry gold standards
    As someone from within the industry making this kind of stuff. SAO is definitely the gold standard when it comes to video game anime. It has the right blend of plot and character development with the right appeal to engage a fairly broad audience.

    It's definitely one of those shows I make sure all of my staff watch because this is "the" show that all other video game anime is going to be judged ...

    An Anime for gamers! This I have to see.
    I throught the idea of the anime was a great one. Their are plenty of charaters to relate to, and a tragic story that challenges the main charater to his limit. Beautiful art style, and makes you wana cry. So stop reading this and watch it already.

    Definitely one of my favorites.
    I've seen the first part/season three times. The second one, twice. I really enjoyed the anime. The only part I didn't really like was the sleeping no knights arc, as the ending was a bit depressing. I'd still recommend this to anyone, whether you're an anime addict or are still coming to terms with the fact that you're an otaku.

    It was Good At First
    Sword art online was a pretty good show at the time. It had a decent plot and the art was pretty, however episode 15+ was meh at best. The plot was almost non existence beside from rescue the female (in this case Asuna). After the *fairy arc* comes Gun Gale Online arc, and it was pretty good. The character Shiro? something with a S helps out Kirito with a crime.

    The Gun Gale Online arc was ...

    I loved this anime and absolutely binged
    (Only watched Season 1 so far)

    I have been searching for an anime that delivered action and romance with a dash of humor and that's exactly what I received. I hate series with all action and no romance. I hate series with only romance and no action. But this? Absolutely perfect mix of both.

    One other thing. The protagonist is really strong. One thing that frustrates me about most series is ...

    SAO is everything I love about anime.
    I think I've rewritten this review about ten times. I keep reading it before I click "submit", and realize I've once again written ten paragraphs of gushing praise without honestly contributing anything to the already huge stream of ridiculous gushy praise that others have already posted.

    What can I say? This anime is great. If you haven't given it a try, you should.

    SAO reminds me of the ...
