[New Summer 2012] Sword Art Online

Japanese title: ソードアート・オンライン
Watch Online:
Genres: SciFi / Fantasy
I've watched: 1 episode

Summary: When the newest virtual reality fantasy game called Sword Art Online is released, everybody rushed to log onto the game. But soon people realized that nobody can log out of the game. In order to leave the game, player has to beat the game. Any other method of forcing player to log off will result death, so does dying inside the game.

First impression score: 89 - Very Interesting Introduction

Personal comments: This is rather different than conventional MMORPG based anime. For starters, it explicitly created the setting so that all players are trapped in the game, so there is not such thing as players coming on and off line. If you think about it, it literally created a fantasy world instantly without having to worry about coming up with the background story of the world. It's a rather brilliant way to create the setting.
