I have been watching a lot of Sword Art Online on Netflix. Like a lot, a lot. Is it is not great. It is okay, but it is anime, and I find anime oddly comforting. For me it is like curling up with hot chocolate or something, so a show that has two full 25 episode seasons is hard to ignore.
The first season is by far the best. With much better writing, and you feel for the characters that are trapped in the titular MMO. The second season there is a lot of stretching going on. Five minute conversations have become full blown episodes. You can probably skip it, but of course I didn’t. I let it is mediocrity wash over me like a warm bath.
Do you like anime. Does high school kids trapped in a full body MMO sound interesting to you? You may like it too. I would forgive you if you didn’t. Netflix’s other show Magi is better. Maybe I should review that since I watched it too? Maybe I will, we will see.
