    Will surely be considered a masterpiece for years to come.
    The concept for this show alone is something so incredible that it needed some kind of anime /movie to be made for it. But Aniplex took it even further and made it a masterpiece. The incredibly smooth animations, the ~beautiful~ landscapes and scenery, incredible voice actors, and a truly outstanding integration of this RPG into Virtual Reality all make for a masterpiece of an anime.

    SOA is one of a Kind
    The aspect of an anime being made into an RPG is just phenominal. From what is out so far this series is definitely one to keep watching. Character development I see might be a lacking in this series so far but hopefully I am wrong. Hope all will enjoy!

    Sword Art Online great
    first this anime is really great you can see that the characters are growing stronger every episode. the bad part is you don't see them like actually going through all the training and battles to level up. but you do see how kirito getting use to live in that world and helping people out no matter what it is.
    A RECOMMENDED ANIME.

    Sword Art Online, the impact of life and death in a Virtual World
    (This is a descriptive review and my opinions on the anime to help new viewers)
    Sword Art Online is one of the most impressive anime I've watched so far with its excellent artwork and animation. The story revolves around a virtual game where players play in a MMORPG with other real players. They wear virtual reality helmets to enter a virtual world but it's suddenly a death trap ...

    One of the best Anime's This Summer
    I don't normally write these one shot paragraph reviews but i think since there are only 6 episode's out this moment, I am just going to put it bluntly and say that everything about this anime is brilliant. The Story is fa nominal, they characters are totally likable and the villain is of course evil. This pretty much sums up my review, thanks for reading ^_^

    Upon finishing, not as great as I hoped
    I went into the series knowing nothing about it, or the hype involved in it. SAO was the first anime I watched as it was airing. So at the time, I thought it was the best anime ever! However, this is not the case.

    Plot: Sword Art Online, or SAO, is an anime about a group of gamers stuck in an MMO and must beat the game to escape. The premise sounds reminiscent of the .hack series, however, that ...

    Sword Art Online is Amazing!!!!
    This is my first review and I have to say it sounded amazing when I read the description. After watching the first episode it got even better!!! The world that they are in is huge and I can't wait til more comes out. I definitely recommend this to anyone who loves games and MMORPGs... which most likely include a very large portion of Crunchyroll members.

    ~!@#y2p3;rjn.asdifu3o%#$%@3u45o
    . . . Hands down one of the best anime I've ever seen, FREAKIN GOOD. Must see! Thick with drama, action, and romance. ^^ It may not seem that there's alot of romance, but it gets better and better as the anime goes on. (I've read the light novels a bit). Trust me. You'll love this show.
    Just look at the reviews... almost complete 5's....
    LOL, but you'll love it. Guaranteed.
    Stay Alpha
