    It starts off good. It really does.
    It starts off good. It really does. The first 14 episodes of season 1 were very good. Although not really an original concept, it does a very good job of the whole trapped in a video game scenario. The characters are fine for the most part and generally you know enough about them and they're likeable enough for you to care, with some exceptions. Like that guy at the beginning that

    How Many Ways Can I Say Disappointing?
    Do yourselves a favour, watch.Hack anything they do it so much better. Yes .Hack//Sign is kind of dull and .Hack//Root is slow, .Hack//Quantum is a movie, and my personal favourite. But, SAO, The first episode really sucked me in, I was on the edge of my seat waiting for the next episode. I cannot praise episode one enough! I couldn't wait to see where this series took me. After watching the ...

    I love it but should have stayed with SAO game.
    I love the show specially the first I watched it. I was intrigued and kept watching till the end of season 1 then now watching the part 2. I just hope they made the SAO part much longer or much better if they stayed it that "Sword Art Online" not elfheim or gungale. But Overall, very good show. A type of anime that you would watch all over again.

    Who called the milkman!!
    This anime started off a solid 10/10 in season 1, and in my opinion got progressively worse. The other seasons weren't necessarily bad... until Alicization aired.

    I find it hard to have any emotional attachment to any characters, as the only recurrent character we see is Kirito.

    Where on earth is Asuna at, a large part of this anime was the connection between Kirito and Asuna but they have ...

    Sword Art Online, insert more sleep here
    This show made me pull one all nighter to watch the entire season 1 and be a wreck! the next day at work, I cannot allow this to go unpunished so I will say this! Season 1 namely up to episode 14 you are awesome and shouldnt have been rushed (they had room for about 24 or so episodes), remaining episodes of season 1 were above average but that is only because they follow the ...

    Sword Art Online. It was good but...
    Sword Art Online,It starts as any gaming anime with the main character going into the game as a solo player and introducing the rules of the game but there is a twist.All the gamer's are stuck in the game but if they die in the game they die in real life. This makes all the people stuck in the game panic while taking precautions to try and stop they're deaths.This fact makes episode nine ...

    A great series but not as good as the hype
    I decided to watch this series because it is one of the most popular anime series currently and everyone has told me it is fantastic.

    It was indeed very enjoyable. There are great action scenes, some emotional scenes as well as some comedic scenes, and some likeable characters.

    The first half of the series set in SAO is much more enjoyable than the second arc set in Alfheim Online. But I ...
