    Sword Art Online is Amazing!!!!
    This is my first review and I have to say it sounded amazing when I read the description. After watching the first episode it got even better!!! The world that they are in is huge and I can't wait til more comes out. I definitely recommend this to anyone who loves games and MMORPGs... which most likely include a very large portion of Crunchyroll members.

    . . . Hands down one of the best anime I've ever seen, FREAKIN GOOD. Must see! Thick with drama, action, and romance. ^^ It may not seem that there's alot of romance, but it gets better and better as the anime goes on. (I've read the light novels a bit). Trust me. You'll love this show.
    Just look at the reviews... almost complete 5's....
    LOL, but you'll love it. Guaranteed.
    Stay Alpha

    An Amazing, Accidental Find!
    Well, most anything I can say about this awesome series has already been said. Characters are great. There is Action! Humor! Sadness and Happiness! It has it all! Including Romance!
    Also, I think the 30+! pages of mostly 5 star reviews (almost 600 of them!) here says a lot!

    I stumbled upon this show while I was browsing various Anime sites and I instantly fell in love with ...

    BEST ANIME EVER MADE
    In my opinion, this anime will last a long time.
    The reason for this is because the plot is very original and the characters are very well made. In addition, every episode is filled with interesting events and new characters. Not only that but the lingering love between Asuna and Kirito makes you skip a heart beat.

    With different cute/hot girls appearing every now and then makes you want ...

    .Hack premise with a better story
    I was nervous about the .Hack similarities at first, but the drastic differences really settle in around the 3rd episode. This isn't a show about some emo protagonist trapped in a video game where he's god. Ok, so the lead character is a bit emo, but the story isn't really about him.

    Art is excellent, animation is so-so, music is average but appropriate, and the story pulls you in faster than ...

    This anime has potential
    The episodes, separately are pretty good, but the way the series is delivered seems a little choppy and with large time skips, we don't get to know the characters as well. Overall, the story is good, but feels underdeveloped. However, the story still has a few epic moments here and there.
    The music is okay. The art is perfect.
    Despite the mediocre aspects of this anime, there is a very ...

    Excellent Pemise Done Well
    Sword Art Online works from an interesting idea and builds on strong main characters and fantastic storytelling. The psychological aspect is what I think makes the story go from good to excellent as you see how the environment affects different types of people. The whole story is rounded off well with nice artwork, good music and voice acting. A well thought out and written story executed ...

    First Series To Make Me Search Out Source Material
    I only started watching SAO a few weeks ago, when it had 5 episodes, this series is so good that after watching all 5 episodes in two days I searched online for the manga, the manga by the way follows the light novel order, which skips a lot of the stories in the anime, the stories we are seeing now are in Vol 2 of the light novel. Anyway after getting to the latest translated chapter of the manga ...

    Sword Art Online --- Review
    Having played a ton of RPGs and games of a similar genre myself, I think this series is amazing. Each episode brings out a different aspect of characters we grow gradually familiar with, as well as introduce new characters, some of which are very refreshing. Beautiful imagery, nice action scenes, and a well-developed storyline keeps me engaged for the 24 minutes that it runs. It is quickly ...
