A great anime, whether your gamer or not.,
This review is from: Sword Art Online Part 1 (Episodes 1-7) Blu-ray (Blu-ray)
While a video game fan, though I admit I've not been one to play MMORPG's, Sword Art Online managed to captivate me from the outset. The idea of being trapped inside in an online game is fascinating and it makes for great entertainment throughout the whole show. For those unaware this series primarily follows Kirito and his experiences along the way of being trapped in an online game called "Sword Art Online". From making new friends to gaming tropes including battling, guilds, upgrading weapons and regaining health, this programme really is a wonderful take on video games and what makes them so enthralling. (I watched with a friend who really isn't a gamer while this was airing, and he loved the show for how it was easy the various concepts presented to him were to understand.)
Really looking forward to this, and considering the great pricing we're getting in the UK compare to the USA, we're getting a great bargain.
