In Ep. 6, Karen's Friend talks about being Defeated by a player named "Zekken" while playing Alfhiem Online. This is referring to Yukki from Sword Art Online 2. This also hints that the Series takes place concurrently with SAO 2 and before the Movie, Ordinal Scale. See more »

User Reviews

Its ok.
20 August 2018 | by invisibleunicornninjaSee all my reviews

Unlike the original SAO, I would describe this show as mediocre as opposed to unredeemable dogsh**. I wouldn't recommend it, but its better than the rest of the franchise.

Gameplay - The original SAO was written by someone who did no research on video games and how they work (there is a video of him admitting to doing NO research when writing, this isn't just me making assumptions). This version was written by someone who tried. There are some elements like the randomized avatar that don't make sense, but for the most part the game in this show feels like an actual game that people would play. There is a logic to how it works and is set up. There is also a logic to how the characters in the game act, unlike in the original SAO.

Characters - Unlike in the original SAO, there are characters in this show. Everyone has a distinct personality and reasons for doing things they do. The female characters have identities and don't only exist for fan service. The character designs are also good here unlike in the original.

Plot - I got about 5 episodes in before stopping, and its mostly just the people playing the game. If you like that kind of stuff then this show is great for that.

I'd only recommend this if you like video games and anime. Otherwise its just an average show. Its a million miles better than the original SAO, but pretty much any anime is better than the original SAO.
