The only reason Im giving it 4 stars, because there are not enough episodes out yet to make a proper decision, but surely it exceeds any anime of this kind. Practically any of the //hack series
The main plot is clean and simple, can keep track of it while things get twistedand dramatic.
Character personality selection is great, funny where it has to be, personalities evolve , got tragedy, betreyal, and the little romantic thread, what every anime needs to be good.
Very promising work

SAO is a rather serious show.
There are lighthearted moments but dont expect chibi-style comical scenes.
To me the first episode was a real catch, i couldnt wait to see the second episode. For me that is rather rare since
in my opinion most series build their attraction over time after youve grown into the world at episode 3 or 4.
(generic number, it happens unless i grew tired waiting aka lost interest)
I dont really want to go into the plot more as the summary already does but ...
The plot is twisting at moments i really didnt think it would and is generally moving fast. There are people who would regard quite some of the early episodes as "fillers" due to them beeing sidestories. I really couldnt disagree more!
I didnt reagard a single episode as a filler. The episodes not working to the end of the game were for me, interesting and, they are developing the characters and introduce people i hope to see more of.
For me this show is up to date a very clear 5/5 - best of the year.
Since this is ongoing and i did NOT read the novel (im actually starting to read it though) this review is bound to change, negative or even more positive.

You know certain anime catches ones eye quickly but its the ones that don't at first until you get curious. It was very well thought out and made perfect. Of course there are the moments when you wonder about what happened as Kirito levels up but I'm sure someone may do some typo of OVA regarding that....maybe. This is a must see anime. I recommend it to everyone :l

BEST ANIME I SAW IN 2012!!!

In my book, this is probably one of the best anime series I have seen so far. While I cannot say this is the most original series out there, but what is lacks for in originality it makes up with character development. I fell for each and every character in this series. Sword Art Online is both heartwarming and engaging, it is definitely a series you must try out if you haven't given it a chance yet!

I first watched the first episode a few months ago (whenever it came out).
It wasn't really appealing, so I wasn't inclined to keep watching.
But as luck would have it, I forgot and watched episode 20 or 21.
I was hooked. watched the whole series in 3 days.
I hope they continue with the seed.

Plot holes everywhere. I've saw deeper characters in my poo. There was no 2 years worth of semen making a gloping sound inside Asuna. This show is the most over hyped one I've saw in a LOOONNNGGGG time. "Oh, but it's an anime about being in a game." That doesn't make it good.
We want you to review Sword Art Online why don't you write one!
