⚔ Sword Art Online Review ⚔

There’s one anime that’s probably THE best anime EVER for a geeks (like me) who LOVE video games and RPGs!! And that anime is…

SWORD ART ONLINE!!!

As you can probably tell already from the title and what I’ve already told you, SAO is about a VRMMORPG (Virtual Reality Mass Multi Online Role Playing Game) called…well…”Sword Art Online”! It follows Kazuto Kirigaya aka Kirito-kun (his screen name) as he plays many online games.

SAO takes place in the year 2022 where technology has advanced so much that there’s now a game console called “Nerve Gear”, which is a helmet that you place on your head. It allows players to go into the game itself by sending messages to the brain that fools it into thinking that you’re in the game physically.

Only 10,000 copies of the new highly anticipated game SAO for the Nerve Gear are sold to gamers and for a very good reason. After a few hours of playing and walking through the world, Aincrad, all 10,000 players are teleported back to the town plaza where they are welcomed by the creator of SAO, Kayaba Akihiko. He informs everyone about something that turns their lives into a living hell.

No player is allowed to log out of the game once they log in. There are only two ways to escape the game: if your HP level reaches zero, in which you won’t only die in just the game, but also in real life, or if you defeat all 100 levels of the game. Also, if someone, such as a family member, tries to take the Nerve Gear helmet off (which some have already tried, 213 to be exact), something in the Nerve Gear that acts like a microwave will turn on and fry your brain, killing you. By the end of the episode it tells you that, after just one month, 2,000 players’ HP levels have reached zero.

Along the way, Kirito becomes one of the strongest players and meets a girl named Asuna who he fights alongside with. They go through many emotional events, both by themselves and together.

The series then continues in what is considered the second season called “ALfheim Online” aka the Fairy Dance Arc (which I won’t say anything more about cause I’m trying my hardest to make this review spoiler-free).

Here’s the trailer for the upcoming (this summerish) English dub (since I couldn’t find the official Japanese one)! ^.^

Here’s a couple of examples of how epic and awesome the battles are in SAO!

And…some AMVs to further show how great this anime is:
