One of the greatest animes ever, It's an anime everyone must watch. I remember reading the manga before this anime became a hit so i knew what to expect but when i watched the anime wow, it surpassed my expectations. It was even better then the manga itself. After doing a bit of research i was surprised to find out Sword Art Online was one of the biggest sellers in Light Novel in Japan! I don't understand why people could possibly hate this anime when it's gotten such positive reviews. Unlike most Anime this doesn't have much Fan Service! Just like four or three scenes but compare to most anime it has so little.
The animation 5/5: one of the greatest animations I've seen and it actually won an award for the best graphics of the year!
Story 5/5: So much death and emotions for this story plot i can't help but to rewatch it. Most people complain it was to short, well what anime isn't? There will always be an anime that skips majority of the details or scenes from the original source so if you want it to a longer extent check the original.
Characters: 4/5: It has characters personalities I've never seen much in anime before so it makes it worst watching! Although i do think the characters could be better, the only ones who are the best are Asuna and Kirito including a few more but that's all.
Romance: 5/5 I think be it boy or girl you will love this romance, it's so good that you can't help but feel their love towards each other. Few Animes couples impact me this much.
SoundTracks: 5/5:It's brilliant, one of the best I've seen.
That is all i totally recommend this! Badass main characters and epic fighting. SAO4Life
with GGO on and have so many disappointing eps (so far but i still have hope) i downloaded and watched SAO and began to see why this show has attracted me so far and i came up with some conclusions:-
1) the story: the concept of VMMO is really great although its taken from hack (dont have time to watch it cuz of work) and seeing that u can control the avatar directly from the brain is really great and this what made this stands out the story of living in a game that if u die in it u die for real this is intense
2) main chara: kirito he is strong, smart, kind, ..... what else, anyway he is almost Mr.perfect adding any more and u get tatsuya which is not good having a strong MC is good but make him OP and the show (sometimes) become dull cuz u always know that the MC will win 1-hit-KO like dante from devil may cry (i really didnt like that show much) but kirito isn't Mr. perfect he had a few
3) romance: will i admit i always look up for shounen romance NOT harem and SAO had the chance to become harem but the MC choose immediately and the harem girls gave up and this is what made SAO stands as 1 of the great romance in anime world
thank u for reading this review and its my opinion about SAO so if u really agree with me vote yes and if not vote no and no hard feelings everyone has its own opinion :)
this is my best anime until now.....its romance , fantasy, adventure, background...animation are all awesome,but the storyline is a little rushed....i believe many people would wanna see how kirito level up or train ,truly saying...the most thing i wanna see is how he get his black blade calle 'elucidator' i heard he slay a dradon to get it.....just a rumor...but...well...the storyline is a little rushed....time passed too fast in just the first 12 episodes....well...other than that its all okay...btw...GGO came...now only until episode 4....but well...so far so good...><
