Sword Art Online

Oh happy day! This summer is looking absolutely great! I have been waiting a long time for this particular anime, as it was supposed to be similar to the Twilight series in more ways than one, and it is! Yet another anime about characters getting stuck inside a MMORPG (Massive Multiplayer Online Role Playing Game) without the ability to log out. Awesome!

The artwork is simply great. A lot of great and detailed surroundings and characters from what I’ve seen so far, I like that! What’s more, I think that the monsters look pretty awesome too, not just the players. I just think that the characters’ special skills could’ve used a bit more work. They look a bit too dull and unimpressive.

As for the story goes; my god! I don’t think that calling the story orgasmic would be too much of an exaggeration. The story is absolutely great. You can go all sorts of ways with this type of story. And not just that, you can also, providing you can keep things interesting, make a large amount of episodes, as the story allows for it. It’s simply that good.

I definitely recommend this to all anime fans! You don’t like fantasy? Too bad, but I still suggest that you give this a try. This is the type of anime you could use to lure people into the world of anime, so I highly advise that you give it a try!

Plot Summary: Trapped and fighting for their very lives in a Virtual Reality MMORPG, Aincrad Online, the story explores the mishaps and adventures of the greatest one handed swordsman of the VR world, Kirito. Together with his friends, the solo swordsman strives to finish the game, which in turn will release all the minds trapped into Aincrad.

    I’m currently reading the light novel translations of 1/2 prince and sword art online (which are awesome btw) but the releases are kind of sporadic. Still, it’s nice to see that one of these masterpieces has been animated. I will be following this all the way! 😀

    As I’ve watched the 3rd episode of this new anime, I noticed the huge amount of floors that were skipped in a single episode. This made me curious. Will this anime end at 12 or 15 episodes like the majority of the current new animes? Or will it last until 50 or possibly more like the many mainstream animes such as one piece or naruto? P.S I didnt read the light novel so i have no idea if its following the story line or not

  3. Do you think Kirito and Asuna from anime “Sword Art Online” have similarities with Noctis and Stella from the pending square enix game “Final Fantasy Versus XIII”?
