Loved Sword Art Online so much that you want to see it again? Than this is the show for you... because essentially that is what this extra edition is - the same soundtrack, art, clips and even the opening song. Basically it is like most every OVA/"special episode"/or first film - the dreaded recap.

Yes, I may come off as unnecessarily harsh but the fact is that very little new content is introduced in what is about a feature length film (~100 minutes) in regards to plot and character development. It starts of well though - Kirito has a "special" appointment with the counselor which seemed read more

First and foremost, if you ever plan on or have considered watching this special, I'm assuming you've seen the first season, otherwise, there's no real reason for you to be here. Because this is a special, my rating for it is not based on complete quality of the special on its own, but how the special relates to the first season. A special is an addendum to a series; it's like an extra episode. Keep that in mind while reading my review.

Examining the special piece by piece, I will start with the basics: art and sound. As I mentioned before, if you're considering watching this read more

Now before you shoot me for rating it low...hear my reasoning. This is intended for people who haven't seen it, it's my advice whether to watch it or not waste time watching it. It's ok if you liked it more than I, it's ok if you hated it more than I. Everyone is entitled to their own opinion. Here goes mine:

First off, don't even think about watching this movie-length special before you have watched the series Sword Art Online if you planned to do it. Also, if you are somehow discouraged to view this movie by its huge flashback, it's all fine, I really read more

Will try to avoid major spoilers.

Story: 5
The story is mediocre. Most of the movie is a summary of what happened during the Sword Art Online season. Many parts of the movie are simply taken from the seasons, so if you're looking for something completely new, this isn't really going to be your piece of the pie. The new underwater quest doesn't add to the storyline very much at all, but it is nice to have an episode that isn't so serious as the SAO series. Expect to watch at least an hour of recaps though.

Art: 9
Art is amazing as usual. Asuna gets read more
