    Great Characters, Story, and Artwork = AMAZING Anime!
    I started watching this show and got hooked from episode 1.

    To me its like a remake on the dot hack story with the risk of death put on all the players, not just 1 (Tsukasa from .Hack)

    The story was well developed and played out. The characters are some of the most memorable among various animes, with great emphasis placed on their human characteristics. The artwork and action sequences ...

    The "Ice-breaker" of 2012
    Even though the anime is not completed as I write this, I can already see that this anime will be one of the best animes of 2012. The characters, world, game, bosses and everything else is done magnificently and I think this anime has the potential to become a long running anime like Naruto (This depends on how long the light novels will keep going)

    Overall, this anime is amazing to look at. ...

    Interesting plot, but slows down considerably as you go.
    The beginning of this anime is pretty epic.

    The problem is that they went from epic to run of the mill anime pretty quickly after a couple of episodes. Its still an interesting anime as the plot itself is awesome, as im myself a fan of MMO games. Too bad the creators decided to concentrate on fluff instead of actual content.

    I always like to compare anime with Code Geass. Code Geass has ...

    Best Anime This Season!
    Awesome character development, plot and storytelling. I am addicted from episode 1.
    Plus many things happen in one episode compared to other anime series going on now like One Piece and Naruto. Saturdays just got more interesting

    Interesting and fun if you give 'em some rope...
    Sword Art Online (SAO) starts with an interesting premise - what if you had to play an MMORPG like it was real life? But it implements in such a way that requires about a mile of heavy rope hawsers to suspend your disbelief far enough to accept the premise. The players are stuck in the game until they die, and then they die in real life? That just doesn't play: outside factors in the real world ...

    SAO: lame concept made into an anime masterpiece!
    Not gonna lie, but I thought this anime was going to suck, but I finished watching the gundam 00 series and saint seiya omega I watched all that has been released so far, so I needed a new show. This show completely blew my mind, the first episode was sort of dull and such a lame concept, but it's amazing how far in depth they went with the whole mmo deal, the beta testers was a great way of ...

    If you love fantasy, watch this now
    Sword Art is a joy to watch. Not only are the characters engaging and grow as you watch the series but the premise is amazing. After the first few episodes I'd already decided I'd love to be in their situation. I'm sorry but the years to level 100 and fighting in an online game sound like way too good a time. Especially if you have the skills Kirito does!

    Animation is crisp and clean. I feel ...
