    I am loving this anime
    Definitely one of the best series so far, I enjoy the no cliff hanger at the end of each episode. Although each episode has little to none connection to one another so far, but in my personal opinion that it is unnecessary because climax hasnt been reached yet. I wish this series to go serious length and hopefully cover everything on the light novel. I love the idea of nerve gear and the real life ...

    Well done and very entertaining! Must watch Anime of this Summer Line-up
    If you watch one anime this line up let it be this one, especially if your an MMO player and even more so if you played MMO's back in the day before they made all of them casual. This anime tells a story from the viewpoint of those kind of games, where things are very challenging. More importantly all the stories so far while at times a little sad have been very engaging and entertaining. The ...

    Love this show but I wish it didn't go by so fast
    I did not read the light novels so I don't know what is missing, but there seem to be skipping a lot because in the first episode they are on the first floor and in the second or third they are on like 28. This is the only flaw to me I would really like to know if anything happened in-between those two parts, but overall this is anime is very well made. Some parts moved me in this anime and yet ...

    Definitely worth watching
    I don't watch much anime, but one of my favorites from the past was .hack//SIGN, so a friend of mine recommended I give this one a try. I was pleasantly surprised, it's extremely watchable and quite entertaining, even for a lightweight fan like myself.

    Definitely a must watch!
    I've been watching anime since 9th grade; seen many different shows, and loved watching anime as a daily routine. Recently I've been reading only manga do to the fact most anime now don't peak my curiosity in the slightest. When I was randomly checking crunchyroll I stumbled upon this anime, it was a instant favorite right off the bat. It kills me that I have to wait for releases for this anime, ...

    This is an amazing Anime.
    I have watched tons of different anime, But all of them did not fulfill my expectations. This one did. I love the animation. I love how they make even the strongest character cry. Its just amazing. Hoping this anime lives on.

    Sword Art Online MMO Anime
    I have always been a huge fan of the fantasy genre in general and I am an avid MMO player. When I first read about his anime I was very skeptical because it is really hard to put into words the experience you have by just playing one. After watching just a few of these episodes I have been highly impressed with the story and the feel the anime gives you. This is an excellent series and I have ...

    One of the summer's best shows
    High quality animation and a story that really doesn't pull punches sums up this little wonder of the summer. SOA is a nice twist of the fantasy genre mixing MMORPG elements much like the DotHack series has, but with a twist of lemon added...if you die in game...your brain gets microwaved like a potato by the headset you just waited in line at a store for 2 days to buy...id like to see a Xbox ...

    I can't wait for Virtual Reality!
    Interesting concept and great implementation. The main character is a predominantly solo player, but because he wants to save everybody he often makes temporary groups. This makes for an interesting way of introducing new characters and keeping things fresh. Graphics 10/10, story 9/10 so far.

    It was ok until up to episode 14.
    Looking back on it, Sword Art Online was the only decent show to come out of Summer 2012. The premise is pretty base and the writing is sub-par, yet it has some good execution with a well done score from Yuki Kajiura and pretty good animation. After episode 14 though, where the Aincrad arc ends and the Alfheim arc begins, the series completely jumps the shark and the writing becomes ridiculous. ...
