Synopsis

Excelling socially and academically, Asuna Yuuki is on track to ace her high school entrance exams. Her friend and classmate, Misumi "Mito" Tozawa, advises her to take a short break from studying and join her on the launch day of Sword Art Online (SAO)—the highly anticipated online virtual reality multiplayer game. Asuna accepts her offer and soon meets her in the game.

In a cruel twist of fate, Asuna, Mito, and every other player logged into SAO find themselves trapped in the game permanently. The only way out is to clear all one hundred floors of the game, and to make matters worse, dying inside the game will kill the player in real life. With SAO now turned into a nightmare death trap, Asuna and other gamers—such as the lone swordsman Kazuto "Kirito" Kirigaya—must adapt and survive, all whilst attempting to beat the unforgiving competition to the top.

It's no surprise that SAO is one of the most significant franchises in the anime industry. No matter how each of us feels about it. We're not maniacs, are we?

I don't even know what to say. Perfect balance. The pacing is great, the visuals and the story are well adapted. (even including Mito) Music from Yuki Kajiura, as usual Godtear. If you are a fan of the franchise, then this is one hundred percent win. But even for people unfamiliar with original anime it will be interesting, or even become the door to the franchise.

This movie is completely asuna's story. Main character in this movie is asuna and it extremly suits for me. asuna's point of view is so fresh.
It is good points to describe the reason why asuna who don't want to play games decide to play "sword art online".
I was moved by this passage "In this world, I can't decide how to live but can decide how to die". It is so cool passage, isn't it ??
I recommend this movie to not only boys but girls too. Because we can get courage by asuna's fighting.
I haven't read "progressive series" but I have excited.
I want anyone who likes ...

** This review contains no spoilers **

I feel as though Sword Art Online, otherwise known as SAO, has to be one of if not the most controversial anime series ever created. With many praising the anime as incredible, many also refer to it as horrendous, making this anime a topic of many conversations and arguments. Now for the big question, where does this movie sit when belonging to the infamous Sword Art Online series?

STORY 8/10: To start things off, the story is taken from the perspective of Asuna Yuuki's experience with the Aincrad Arc (1st arc) ...
