Okay, my spring quarter is coming to an end. I just have to get through finals week and then I'm free... until the summer quarter... yeah. But I'm sure none of you are interested in that, mainly because I'm sure very few of you guys are actually reading my blog posts at all, or are even interested. Anyway, now it's time to talk about some anime and this week we have Sword Art Online, an anime about a fictional near future MMORPG that uses a virtual reality interface... I SWEAR this isn't .hack!

|Oh, you are one of THOSE gamers.|
Even with the problems of the second season, Sword Art Online is still one of the more fascinating series of recent years. It hooks you in and keeps you watching... until everything took a turn for the stupid in the second season. It's not as bad as say Utawarerumono, where my suggestion is to watch it up to the point of suckage and then make up your own ending, as the second season of Sword Art Online does redeem itself somewhat towards the end, but, in my opinion, not enough to justify it's existence. I would have much rather they spent more time on the more interesting first season and filled in some gaps in it's narrative rather than jumping headlong into the second season. Either way, Sword Art Online is still Highly Recommended.
Until next time.
