Oh man, if you’ve ever played an RPG, you have to watch this show!
Imagine you’re playing one of your favorite RPGs and then suddenly you get sucked into the game and live there. You can’t log out, and you can feel pain. If you die in the game, you die for real!
Sound’s pretty awesome right? It did to me too!
The story follows this guy Kirito, who isn’t your typical badass, but he does not wine and he’s confident in himself. The entire anime is fast-paced and every 1 or 2 episodes they are challenging a new floor boss (they need to beat 100 floors to log out of the game). Every boss battle is different, so you never know what to expect. They suffer heavy casualties, but that does not stop my boy Kirito.
Midway through the series, he gets a special skill called dual blade because of his fast reflexes. He is the only one in the game to have this skill, so he quickly becomes one of the most powerful players. The series ends in an unexpected way, but then a new season begins which is also pretty damn good.
Definitely check out this series if you haven’t already!
What’s good about this anime in a few words?: Epic battles, great fight scenes, fantasy world. Very cool plot.
Overall Rating: 9.3/10 for first season and 8.9/10 for second.
