    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.

  • My thoughts on S.A.O
    I like this series. S.A.O is something a gamer like myself would play, if there was no death after losing all your health that is. I for one am going to continue to watch this series until the end. I want Kiritos' jacket.

  • Old Concept with a New Spin
    For those of you that are familiar with series such as .hack// this show will seem very similar. Although it follows the same basic concept of a digital world in which the players are fully involved and then something changes so that their lives are in danger. The new spin on SAO is that it follows in depth all the interactions of the characters from upgrading weapons, mapping new areas, to ...

    Unique and quickly interesting
    Very unique and quickly interesting. This is a great story genre to break the mold of anime, my only fear is it being too short. The graphics are fantastic, I can only hope all new anime has the high standards of this one.
