    Sweet, Sweet Nostalgia
    First things first-
    Read the Light Novel, it is amazing.
    Secondly, right off the bat, the plot of SAO had me hooked. I cannot even count the numerous times I dream't of being in a VRMMORPG (Virtual Reality Massive Multiplayer Role-Playing Game) it would certainly be the end of my life-
    But at the same time create a entirely different one.
    Although the situation these characters have to endure ...

    Needs an extra life.
    Let me preface this by saying so far, it's not bad. I like it, it reminds me of .hack and much of it has great art. However, this review is based off the first episode, and the first episode alone. I'm not reading the light novels, the manga, or anyone's fanfiction. I don't have the time at the moment to engross myself in a world that hasn't impressed me enough based on the actual episode content ...

    Looks like its just gonna get better!!
    After watching the first episodes i was already hooked, and then i watched the second episode and saw that amazing fight scene..... it was just epic looking.... i really want them to explain how the real bodies are alive in the real world, and what level the main characters are and what stats and stuff their weapons and armor have that would be cool just to see.

    best show for everyone and anyone to watch
    The plot is very creative, which has sucked me into the anime. With only two episodes, I already care about the characters and how their going to make it. This is a show that I'm definitely going to recommend to my friends and family who are total gamers. Even if you're not a gamer, you'll enjoy this equally.

    So far amazing, will it hold? I hope so.
    The first thing you notice about Sword Art Online is that it is a gorgeous looking anime. The artwork, though it is of a standard variety, is well done with very nice backgrounds. It's not groundbreaking, but the attention to details is fantastic and I can only hope that it retains this level in the episodes to come.

    The characters in this anime have been made in such a way that they are ...

    Expected greatness, wasn't let down
    So far SAO has delivered the perfect combination of modern tech and the good old fashion ninja anime that everybody knows and loves. I would highly recommend this show for anybody who enjoys shows such as Kaze no Stigma, InuYasha, Nabari, etc.

    Next dotHack? Nope!!
    No, that's what I thought when I first watch this beautiful work of art. The premise is pretty jaded but that's what makes it unique thus far. The Soundtracks to the fighting are spot on, and it's just a overall great anime to watch. i'm curious to see how the story plays out!

    Adventure,suspense,tear jerking,jaw dropping anime for only seeing the first 3 episodes. Allt of ppl think this is going fast right now, but i wonder? But hey, thats how i would do it i guess,action,drama,death all in the first episode.

    Why Watch Sword Art Online
    After watching 3 episodes of Sword Art Online (SAO) I finally decided to make a review for it.

    This anime draws you into the messy world of MMOs. It is impressive that each episode makes the anime realistic compared to MMOs being played right now. When a person plays MMO, the game won't stop every player who's been there way before you just to notify that YOU are gonna be amazing or be the ...
