    SAO... A beautiful anime set within an MMORPG
    Sword Art Online is an anime based off of a series of Light Novels by the same author who wrote the Light Novels for Accel World. Taking place in a world where the inhabitants are trapped within a game by the game's creator and where death within the game becomes death in reality, the citizens of the world must fight through the 100 floors of the world in order to log out.

    Thus far, the ...

    A Horrific New Anime About MMORPG's
    Imagine being trapped in a virtual reality MMO and not being able to log out or escape the game until you beat the entire thing, something that could easily take months. Now imagine that if you die inside the game, you die in the real world too, or that if you are forcefully removed from the game, you will also die. This is basically SAO, an anime that creates the most horrific situation an MMO ...

    Going to be excellent from the looks of things.
    Sword Art Online is a very unique idea, at least I haven't seen something like it. excluding the MMORPG aspect the idea is pretty basic, but just within the first episode it is already being executed perfectly. I have high expectations for this one and will continue to watch it through to the end.

    With out a doubt my favorite of the summer line up that I have seen.

    Sword art online episode 1
    I think this a very good anime show that i have ever saw so far because its about a kid who gets this new game and when gets to play something happens when he wants to log out. I will not tell you what happen because you just have to watch it and see with ur own eyes.

    Not new, but not bad
    [Review based on episode one]
    Series with a video game/virtual reality premise aren't new, however they are not plenty. Sword Art Online is one of those few series that has took itself into the territory of virtual reality gaming.

    So far the art is fair to say the least. The setting is drawn out to a good degree but so far the characters aren't much to look at, but that's not without reason. ...

    A horrible, over-hyped, fanfic.
    Obviously, negative reviews about everyone's favourite series will end up with a buttload of 'unhelpfuls'. Oh, well. SAO isn't all it's said to be. It's horrible.
