This SAO is definitely better than the new one
SAO is filled with with fangasms! The first 1-14 episodes are just pure bliss! but 16-23 are not quiet my favorite... If you are going to watch the ALO season then just watch episode 15 then 24 and 25. It flows ok and skips all of the shitting parts. Nothing really happens during 16 to 23 execpt some fights but ya know they dont really have to do with saving the chick and arent that important. The last fight scene is great like really really good. The antoganist is definetly one of thee most easily hated villains EVER! In all of the history of anime! I have never really hated someone as much as him (with the exception of the ULTIMATE scumbag named Griffith form Berserk). It has a lot of drama and action. The characters are very real feeling and not boring at all. The romance in the first season has pretty much every other anime beat including SAO 2 xD. SAO 2 had like no romance. Kirito like completely forgot he married Asuna. (in the game but still they said that the game and real life wouldnt matter and their feelings would remain the same right?!) Well I still rewatch the first season of SAO and absolutely love it!!! I wouldn't reconmend the shit anime called SAO 2 which will never ever compare to this EVER! The only reason this got 4 stars and not 5 is because Kirito like forgot about Asuna and started flirting with his sis who he didnt know was his sis. But it is stiil good if you skip the in between parts. SAO 2 is just not the same. The feels it gives do not compare to this awesome show!
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 :)
