  • Amazing amazing amazing
    Just straight up, amazing; beautiful.
    You might not be interested as much if you aren't into gaming, but I am, and it is honestly the best series Ive ever watched. It may not have the best writing, but I feel the characters so much and relate to the history in a way nothing else could.

  • Its a fairly decent anime.
    Personally, I love MMORPG anime shows like "Trapped in a game" or "Transported in a game." I really do, but this anime kind of throw me off the loop for a bit. The MC gets too overpowered in season 3 and 4, to the point where everything falls apart. I still like the settings and story though. The action scenes were amazing just like your typical fight scenes in every action anime. Its just that ...

  • Another season please
    One of the first animes introduced to me and will hold a special place for me. A virtual world trapped with many other players where if you die in the game you could die in real life. Great introduction for new anime fans to even those hardcore fans.

  • Brilliantly Designed Characters
    Pro: You get really invested in the characters and their relationships
    Con: You get really invested in the characters and their relationships

    After watching the first season I had to watch all of them, if there is ever a new season you have to watch it. In between seasons and new content you may sometimes find yourself dreaming in their worlds.

  • Not as good as I thought it would have been..
    This "trapped in a game" anime doesn't seem too interesting later on. It gets high potential to downwards of unholy, unreasonable reasons. Season 2 is kind of bad, Season1 is alright, not as good as the LN to be honest. Season 3 was "meh" and season 4 is the best one out of them, that is the reason why I give one more star. Kirito became too overpowered, that it becomes boring and repetitive too ...

  • Great anime definitely surprised me lol
    This is a great anime, by all means, don't get me wrong lol. The only thing I would say that I don't like about this is the lack of character development. Otherwise, the anime is amazing. Didn't expect most of the stuff in it. Was very entertaining may or may not have binged it in about 2 days...
    10/10 would recommend.
    Great animation. Good storyline.

  • You either love it or hate it
    Personally, I love it. Overall it has it's high and low notes, but overall it truly does live up to the hype that it gets online. It's a great series with good characters, great acting and splendid visuals. Sure, the plot sometimes really stretches your suspension of disbelief, but come on. It's an anime about alternate reality, don't take it so seriously...

  • Can't watch S3 or 4 :(
    I have only watched the two seasons of SAO, I tried to watched season 3 and 4, but my parents doesn't let me watch it lol, so I went and buy the light novel instead. It was fun to see that this anime brings back memories after a few years. Anyway, the second best "trapped in a game" so far besides Overlord. This anime has been essentially popular in a few months because the rise of the Alicization ...
