    If you love anime Watch this
    If you love anime then this one is for you. It has everything from action to romance. It has a rich and deep story line that will pull you in so quickly. One of the better anime shows that I have seen. The graphics are amazing and the fight scenes are epic. I love SAO.

    Phenomenal premise, but squandered potential...
    I've neglected to write a review on this anime for quite some time because everyone else's reviews basically touch on the same stuff that I'll touch on, but I might as well give my two cents, and who knows, I'll probably talk about something someone else hasn't mentioned yet.

    Story - 2 / 5
    This anime starts off with phenomenal potential, bringing you into the VRMMORPG world of SAO with ...

    What a waste of time
    Wow so I had high hopes for this anime. They were destroyed. Everyone LOOOVES Kirito, even though he really isn't all that great. He is a terrible character, cookie-cutter...hmm Mary Sue. Then we meet his girlfriend that fall in love (awkwardly) who is also a Mary Sue. They have adventures that are more mind-numbing than Rosario Vampire does and the actual story is just sorta...lost. Each episode ...

    Pretty good, easy to watch
    I thought the first half was really well done and could have even ended there. The fairies seemed kinda cheesy, and the plot was just about trying to save a trapped helpless girl. I didn't really like how Asuna couldn't do anything even though I thought she was stronger than Kirito. I still liked the anime, but it could have gone in a different direction (including the whole thing with his ...

    Very very interesting
    Although id half to agree that the 2nd part of the 1st season of this was not 100% as good. All in all the whole series thus far I have found very enjoyable and intriguing.
    As a what if scenario it is very intelligent.
    The social (and to an extant psychological) aspects the characters deal with (especially in the 1st half of the show thus far) I found very interesting. I could see folks freaking ...

    Great anime, I think everyone would enjoy this.
    This is a great anime, and I think it deserves the recognition. If you're new to anime, or an "anime veteran," I think you would enjoy this anime either way. It has a great plot and I think it's a great idea. I enjoy the semi-romance and lots of action packed scenes this anime has. If you're in to Romantic anime and Action or Fantasy I think this would be the anime for you. 5/5

    Why are you reading this, and not watching this anime?
    I have one suggestion for anyone wondering if this Anime is as engaging and overwhelmingly wonderful, as other commenters have said: Watch Episode 1.

    The storyline is well thought out, and I love how "human" the main character was portrayed. Very well written to try to give a possible emotional representation that being trapped in a video game would bring on all types of people.

    One amazing ...

    One of the best anime I have ever seen
    Sword Art Online is what started me into anime. I have always liked the idea of a virtual reality. When i started watching, i didn't have high expectations, i thought it was going to be one of those anime with a hard to believe story and a wimpy main character. Sword Art Online went above and beyond with its deep story and amazing art. I liked how the story wasn't all action, it had a heart ...

    "Death Game" A Solid Anime
    Enjoyed this show quite a bit. I still do at the moment, having refreshed over the last month. The story starts out very solid, and does a good job of building up its characters.

    Unfortunately, as the 'Fairy Dance' arc approaches, its littered with cliches and tropes and it severely takes away from the characters development and their personalities. It turns the series into a bit of a ...
