*Disclaimer: This was one of my first reviews, and my reviewing style and system has changed since then. While if I were to re-review the series now the score would be a lot different, several of the points I made about the series still stand.
*This is only a review of the first season of Sword Art Online. This review does contain slight spoilers.
I missed the initial S.A.O. craze that happened when it was first released because I didn’t really get into anime until the summer of 2013. I actually had never even heard of it until I saw that it was airing in English on Toonami. After watching the first few episodes I was really excited about the show. It’s just too bad that the show didn’t finish as strong as it started.
