    Perfect anime but alfheim went by too fast!
    When I watched the first episode of sword art online, i was shocked by how amazing this anime was, the storyline was just great. I just loved the episodes where they were in the world of sword art online. I went by those episodes at the speed of light since i liked them so much... But then came the world of alfheim online. I find that the creators didn't take the time to detail the world of ...

    Sword Art Online Review
    SPOILERS - THIS IS MY PERSONAL OPINION
    A few ep's in and i sincerely fell in love with this anime. It was exciting and attention grasping. I enjoyed the character of the protagonist, i prefer the quiet cool type compared to the boisterous loud type. But what really made this work for me was the ability to die in a game; this added the much serious tone and emphasised the deaths of people within ...

    Review of Season 1&2
    As an avid anime fan who has seen hundreds of anime, I can honestly say that this anime is one of the most memorable anime to have been released in the past few years. Everything about is is high quality. From the artwork to the voice acting to the animation, everything is well done. Many people have complained through their comments that the pacing of the first season (ep. 1-12) is too fast, or ...

    SAO is an awesome virtual reality story
    I've always been a sucker for anime that dealt with the fantastical issues arising from interacting with a virtual world. SAO blends a nice mix of great music, action, and deeply emotional human story of people stuck between worlds -- questioning what is and what is not real.

    I hope they continue onto season 3 and beyond =)

    Sword Art Online - A show with great potential that faded too fast.
    Sword Art Online seemed really cool to me in the beginning. I loved the art style, the animation was gorgeous, and the music really fit the show. For the first five or six episodes I was really into it, eagerly awaiting each new release at the end of the week. It was an intense show with an interesting premise that I enjoyed watching. I didn't really care much for the main two characters (Asuna ...

    It's good but not the best
    As many other reviewers point out, this show is good however it is overrated. Many who can relate or want to relate to the main character will find enjoyment in the show. However if you read any of the reviews out there that are not 5 stars you will get a better picture of what the anime has to offer. Now most of the faults that are in the anime are due to the limitations of a seasonal Anime, such ...

    So much potential... lost.
    Plot was great at first. From watching the first episode I really saw potential in this show and really thought it would be a very promising adaption series, unfortunately that impression didn't stand for very long. Episode by episode it became really hard to grasp the original plot in this series, The unnecessary fillers, fan service, and unbelievably fast phase of it all left me with a headache ...

    Great Adventure, Action, and some comedy moments anime
    This anime is practically the best and most entertaining anime that thousands or maybe millions of people are enjoying each time a new episode is out and funny moments happening. Also i have to say the romance part is practically the "second" best part about this anime so far (Action is #1). if this is an on-going anime (EXTREMELY HOPING IT IS!) then many people will be extremely happy (MOSTLY ME ...

    Why Watch Sword Art Online
    After watching 3 episodes of Sword Art Online (SAO) I finally decided to make a review for it.

    This anime draws you into the messy world of MMOs. It is impressive that each episode makes the anime realistic compared to MMOs being played right now. When a person plays MMO, the game won't stop every player who's been there way before you just to notify that YOU are gonna be amazing or be the ...

    Sweet, Sweet Nostalgia
    First things first-
    Read the Light Novel, it is amazing.
    Secondly, right off the bat, the plot of SAO had me hooked. I cannot even count the numerous times I dream't of being in a VRMMORPG (Virtual Reality Massive Multiplayer Role-Playing Game) it would certainly be the end of my life-
    But at the same time create a entirely different one.
    Although the situation these characters have to endure ...
