    Awesome in so many ways!
    Entertaining. Great combo of single episode and multi-episode story line arcs. Characters that you get invested in. Brings up real ethical issues with online MMOs and the complex nature of those issues. Also has plenty of gorgeous animation and great action sequences!

    Good series, not great
    In the initial story arc Kirito plays a full dive virtual reality MMORPG called Sword Art Online. Immediately after the release the game master takes away the player's ability to log off. He tells them they can only exit the game if they clear all 100 floors and if they die in the game they will die for real. Later arcs include different games.
    It is a good series and worth watching. It's just ...

    Great Story and Feels Grabber. :D
    Season 1 was the best i can not lie but Season 2 was like its own anime but it tied into the past season. Season 2 brings new characters and really grabs your attention even if people hate on Season 2 it still is worth watching. Action, Romance both action lovers and romance people will enjoy this anime with little complaints. If your in the mood for an anime or season to watch that really has you ...

    Awesome Anime to Watch
    It's a great anime to watch. I had originally put off watching this particular anime due to me thinking it was going to be about guns and that Kiragaya would be like a girl the entire time, but I eventually gave in. It's actually really good. The gun arc was shorter than I expected and the main character introduced in the Gun Gale Online arc sort of got pushed to the side, which I wasn't really ...

    Thought provoking series on the social & psychological consequences of virtual reality gaming
    I thought season 1 was perfect in that it created a situation where everything was at stake for the players and they had to deal with it in a truly grand, epic fashion. It still had time for detours and character development.

    Season 2 got off to a bang with the Death Gun arc, but felt let down with the Excaliber section as a total waste of time. Mother's Rosario redeemed things completely ...

    Best anime I've ever watched! Compleling Complete! has a Heart!
    If you like anime's in general, you can not miss this one it is the best I've ever seen. Won me completely, couldn't get enough! There is a real story line not too rushed, not too slow I feel like it has a great balance. Also great action and there is a point to everything that happens, and the greater love story between Kirito and Asuna is heart warming. Having said that there are plenty of ...

    The fastest dip in quality I have ever seen.
    After watching the entirety of Sword Art Online, I can safely say that my first impressions differed greatly from my current feelings about this anime. The first half of season 1 sets the series up to be a goofy, 'style over substance" action show, which is always a plus in my book, but these first impressions do not stay for long, as season one's second half nosedives about as fast as a ...

    Very engaging at times, uncomfortable at others.
    As other reviewers have pointed out, the first 14 episodes or so are really good and then the second story arc falters, a lot. While the first story arc is touching and even brings up interesting themes to ponder, the second arc's out-of-place fan service moments and uncomfortable ambiguous themes of brother-sister love ruins the nearly self-contained and fairly well wrapped up first ...

    Easily my favorite anime!
    I've watched SAO, SAO2 and the movie to boot. Amazing characters and development. It has just the right mix of action, emotion, and plot. The main character and his story are so engaging, this has become the anime I use to weigh everything else against. Highly recommended!
