Sword Art Offline didn't seem to add anything; I felt that if you watched it or didn't watch it, you're not missing out on anything (action-wise or information-wise).

For animated chibis, they displayed a very limited range of emotions (most of the time it's just blushing); they're chibis, they're supposed to be over the top in my opinion.

Plus, too much useless fanservice and tsundereness that I find plain annoying.

The attempted humour falls flat, and everything that happens is extremely predictable.

The segment that I did enjoy was the trivia corner because it wasn' something that was necessarily repeated information - usually it was something new ...

Mixed Feelings
first of. there is NO new material in these shorts. secondly, whatever any other reviwers say, this is NOT a recap show. and, imho, you should only watch this if youre a true SAO fan. maybe even a hardcore one. i'm not, but i still enjoyed these short episodes.

the review:

each episode consist of up to five parts of a SAO news station broadcast:
the headlines, sword art offline, trivia, playback corner, slot talk, life counseling and ending

the show starts with "news headlines" by chibi anchor asuna followed by either "sword art trivia" with chibi yui (yeah) or goes straight to "sword art offline". in the sword ...

Yeah, it's ok. The art style was pretty good however, the soundtracks were not that good. There were some facts about Sword Art Online like the reason behind the name "Titania", and many more. The character design was really so cute.
If I talk about the story so it was nothing that special. It was just an ordinary filler or breaktime story.
This extra edition doesn't play any role in the main story so, if you have enough time if you don't wanna finish the anime early so, you can watch it.
Overall the extra edition was good and some seen were so funny.
