    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 ...

    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. ...

    Omg so epic you must cry
    I really liked how this anime plays like the other mmo anime's but has it's own feel and story the main character really gets you hooked into the story and brings out a different feeling of awesomeness.

    This show has the most OP main character ever
    Man this show just grabs you and oh boy do you go for one crazy ride. I mean in episode four you see how (sorry) "Bad Ass" Kirito is in the bridge scene i could see my self being a solo beater player. Come on MMO developers your should take a lesson from this show we need Virtual Reality MMO's already

    A must watch anime!!
    The plot, style and characters are all so great. The drawings are detailed and has wonderful effects and is very interesting with it based on a MMO type theme. The theme is also really good! I would would recommend this to anyone who likes a good fastasy or just a nice anime to watch!

    Awesome SAO my new favorite!
    Just found out they stopped airing bleach need a replacement I think this one is it. I hope this one lasts a while it has potential. Makes you wonder if we will ever have video games like this I think I would still play even though it has risk. Food for thought lol
