Because of Sword Art Online I will never play a video game where I am transported into a game, or a VRMMORPG as they call it.  That freaks me out; I don’t want to die in a video game, which is just ridiculous.  Okay, it is time for the synopsis of the series!

The only way to escape is to ‘clear’ the game. Death in game means actual death.  The ten thousand who have logged onto the as of yet mysterious game ‘Sword Art Online’ using their Nerve Gear have been forced into this perilous death game and are trapped inside.  Protagonist Kirito, one of the many gamers, has greeted this ‘truth’.  He plays as a solo player in the giant castle that is the stage for this game ‘Aincrad’.  To meet the conditions of clearing the game and leaving this twisted virtual world, he must get through all 100 floors. Will Kirito have what it takes to clear the game, or will he die trying? (MyAnimeList)

As of episode 1 Sword Art Online has immediately raised the bar.  Accel World has nothing on this series.  Oh big deal, you die in the accelerated world and all that happens is brain burst is uninstalled and you loose your memories.  If you die Aincred you die in the game and you die in real life.  It sucks for those poor people who managed to get their hands on the game.

A-1 pictures are behind this anime.  Sword Art Online’s animation is great.  Everything is of the highest qualities and the movement of the characters is very fluent.  The animation is much better then Accel World.  Actually everything is better than Accel World; Accel World sucks.  Okay I need to stop complaining about Reki Kawahara other novel series.

Akihiki Kayaba is the definition of an asshole but he sure makes this series interesting.  I wonder what went through his mind when he decided to trap thousands of innocent people in his fucked up game.  This show sure looks like it is going to be dark.  I am excited for everything that is going to come from this series.  I hope it doesn’t disappoint like Accel World.

Thanks for reading!
