    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. ...

    Play to live. Game on.
    Okay, seriously. I need to stop putting off animes that people suggest to me. It seems every time someone suggests something, I end up crying at the end or just laughing until I cough out a lung. Except for Air Gear, I simply don't like that anime.

People can actually die in the game and you see real life begin to mix in with the virtual world they're ...

    Engaging Plot & Great Action
    First 13 episodes are beautifully constructed, dealing with thought-provoking situations and wonderfully done character development. It's filled breathtaking scenery, great action sequences, a sweet romance, and truly interesting villain.

    If they had left it at that it would have been a classic in my book, but they had to add on the last 13 episodes that, as a female reviewer, made me angry ...

    An interesting concept that falls flat
    Sword Art Online is really just a story about a very mary-sueish character named Kirito, following his adventure as he gets trapped into an online world. The world of Sword Art Online is rather interesting, and has a plethora of wonderful and unique mechanics that take a back seat to the relationships that Kirito builds with a bunch of random female players, eventually settling on the cliche ...
