    Sword art Online inspires
    I myself am a gamer in the fact that i enjoy playing video games. This anime drew me in with the fact that the anime takes place in a MMORPG, but there is a twist! If you die in the game you die in REAL LIFE! To enter the game you wear a a helmet that redirects your five senses into the game disconnecting them from reality. The players must complete the game by making their way up through the 100 ...

    Animix Review of SAO
    Hello Crunchyroll & fans,
    Now I've been away for a little while popping in and seeing whats new once and a while. Once i saw a new animated production in the works, at a high popularity i just had to check out Sword Art Online (SAO). and here's why i gave it the rating i did.

    Overall: 5/5
    Should be 4 and 1/2 stars because nothing is perfect...I may be prone to a little bias because i'm an ...

    A Lovely Contrast of Cliche
    Remove SAO's MMORPG elements and you have a fairly generic setting and protagonist. But despite being generic, it's still very well done. Kirito is interesting and the people he meets in each episode can be anywhere between heartwarming or heart breaking. It has just the right amount of both comedy, action, and tragedy. The addition of video game cliches adds another layer to this world that makes ...

    Great Action anime, great fights and unique story structure
    This series is a lot like hack. Quantum (another series I really like), with a interesting main character. He is a likable and mysterious bad-ass within the world of SAO, although he seems to be a normal gamer in the real world. The world of SOA is also well developed and beautifully animated. Its great for action and drama but I haven't really seen any comedy so far. I also really like the way ...

    Awesome. Can not wait for more!
    Been fishing around for something decent to watch after i chewed through the basic animes. This and "total eclipse" caught my attention recently. If they keep up quality of the first 5 episodes they have a nice lifetime viewer right here.

    USA born, anime journeymen.

    Look forward to more!

    Addendum: Not sure why this is compared to dot hack so directly. Ok fine, its an MMORPG and they ...

    Love the MMO setting.
    Alot like Dot Hack, I really love the MMORPG setting as a player of MMO games. I can identify with the leveling system, items, classes, etc. I can't wait to see it every week and I kinda wish there were more anime like this out there.

    Very Interesting Show
    Well I just started watching this show today, and much to my surprise, it is very fun and exciting. Normally I am not into these kinds of anime, as I generally stick to horror and action, but occasionally I will find something that doesn't fit with what I normally watch and read (Berserk, Samurai Champloo, Gungrave, etc). The main story is based arounda virtual world, where you live and breath. ...

    Right out of my head...
    I have no other words to describe this amazing anime. I have been a big MMORPG gamer for years. I have always dreamed of the day VR came into play. I also have had thoughts that it would be the perfect way for a "god complex" genius to have his day. It is like they took this right out of my head!! In detail...

    Needless to say I give it *****

    Very Adventurous and Entertaining
    I love this anime, one of the Best I've ever watched. The videos go pretty fast, but once it hits the main plot, things will start to go slower, and you start learning much more about the main story. I love how they made an mmo into an awesome Virtual Reality game. Very unique, I've played MMO's in my entire life, and this is very entertaining. After watching, I ...
