    Is "Sword Art Online" any good?

    I have seen one episode of the series so far, and I don't know if I should continue watching. My thoughts on it are really limited since I only seen one episode and it looks ok.
    Is the anime any good?

    First season is great, second still good but plot and dedication are lacking.

    You gotta be kidding me, of course it is, in fact I would say it's probably ranked 1st over all the other anime that have been released this year. Btoom! is also good.

    Thats not saying much, the better 2012 stuff(fate/zero and nise) was released in late december to start, there isn't many anime in 2012 worth mentioning anyway.

    Though sword art online is probably in the top 5 anime this year, it stands out so much because pretty much nothing else has come out.

    The LN is horrible lol.

    Sword art online in any other form other than the anime is pretty bad, and the anime is really only good thanks to its animation and dedication to the world. Though to be fair the Author is a bit of a hack. I mean he made sword art online AND accel world, which basically go off the exact same premise in the same year. There are several other books that are a ton better than Sword Art on the same subject and meant for the same age group.

    Everyone seems to like it, and Kirito looks like a fucking bad ass, so I don't think you can go wrong. xD

    Zetsuen no Tempest is pretty good.


    If you're gonna watch Sao, it does get boring a little, but its worth a watch.

    I recommend reading it instead because its much better and there's more arcs. THERE might be a sao season 2 that might be the other arcs aswell, but im not sure,

    I am currently watching episode 12 and its pretty good so far. But the Yui arc was pretty bad, so many animes have that kind of arc with a girl with amnesia and then they have to rebuild it and she disappears. It wasn't as good as Kanon's Makato arc which was pretty much the same thing except she is a fox or something (and was 10 times sadder) and it wasn't as good as Clannad's Fuko arc. I just hope Yui plays a significant role later in the anime and isn't just there for no reason. Makato and Fuko both play significant roles in the later stages of there respective animes.

    Yui is important just not really explained at why she consistently hacks the game without any consequences.

    I just watched episode 19 and its starting to get boring. The first 14 episodes were really good but now everything just feels tacked on, its also starting to feel like a harem with all the girls falling in love with Kirito.

    I'm not a big fan of the second half of the anime, its really got nothing to do with the first half and is pretty damn lazy to boot.

    Up the the latest episode now (24), the first half was good, second half was HORRIBLE. The ending was also pretty bad, its just like I believe in myself now i can defy the programming of a the game. It is also pretty generic. I also heard that the anime doesnt follow the Light Novel that well, that is why there is alot of plot holes and unnecessary arcs. The Incest is pretty bad, i had how Japan puts Cousin love in anime its present in nearly every anime.
