Sword Art Online Part 2 Masterpiece
on 24 June 2014
Continuing my review of Part 1, Sword Art Online is one of the most passionate and satisfying anime series I've seen in recent years. And especially in the second part, you get to witness a lot of charm and emotion. The developing relationship between Asuna and Kirito is really lovely to watch and it's surprising to see just how far they go in such a short space of time. It's true that like most animes the writers couldn't help but add in a little bit of 'fan service' to satisfy some viewers pleasures, and some of the scenes and jokes can be seen as a little bit inappropriate. But if anything else, they are little more than a bit of light-humour, which helps to keep the series from being too dark or intimidating. Of all the parts of Sword Art Online, this is perhaps the most charming one.
