    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 ...

    As my review title said, "Absolutely Wonderful!!!"
    Great characters, intriguing story line, makes me want to play the game and jump into the story line to help them. Mystery + Fantasy + Romantic story. A+++...

    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 ...

    SAO is way better than it should be.
    This show should be unwatchable. It's fairly impressive they took such a terrible concept and forged an amazing show from it. Granted, there's rough edges and plot holes, at the heart of it SAO is just a story about survival but overall I look forwards to new episodes. If you can stand some amazingly blunt geeky concepts (virtual world, cooking via a UI, MMO's) and teenage awkwardness, chances are ...

    SAO really feels like you're Immersed.
    I have to say that SAO is much better than I was anticipating it to be. The anime really pulls you in as you watch and you almost feel like it's a game you're playing, those who actually play MMO's should understand what I mean when I say this. I feel they did an excellent job on this anime and I'm looking forward to many more episodes.

    more of the good less of the bad and in a new interesting setting
    This anime manages to retain the classic sense of magnitude in the task, to be undertaken by the protagonist, which we all know and love. It makes everything the characters do feel epic. In this case it is done without resorting to them being repeatedly owned at first, only to gain some contrived partially explained incredible powers and "win the anime". Instead more emphasis is based on the ...
