A short review; this is more of an overall impression instead of detailed response. And some ranting. Most of you are gonna hate this review, because I'm not going to say anything about the standard positive point of this anime (such as the animation, drawing, bla bla bla you guys know it already). Instead I will nitpick about the small things.

tl:dr: Excellent animation, excellent source material, not-so-great director.

Long version:

This is the adaptation of my number 1 favorite VN Fate Stay Night. Considering the job ufotable did in FZ, I had some real big expectation.

And indeed, I was disappointed.

Disregarding the wonderful job the Art Director ...

HakoMari's story is one of the most 'cult' light novel story I have ever read, throwing mainstream out from the window right away.

Turns out it's not.

SAO is the anime adaptation of a series of light novels of the same name by Reki Kawahara, with an amazing amount of hype (not without reeason for the novel). It is set on 2022, where humanity has finally for the first time able ...

Sword Art Online is about a virtual reality MMORPG. It is set on 2022, where humanity has finally for the first time able to completely go inside the game world using virtual reality technology.

At first I didn't really put high expectation to it, since it's genre is quite mainstream, like .hack G.U. or Yureka, but with a tint taste of darkness; Death is real here.

But the more I read it, the more I find myself enjoying the proggress of the story. The writer, Kawahara Reki gives a really realistic system and surrounding of said VR game, and it makes us able to completely drowned ...
