Anime this one is awesome, it is worth when Fun put Sword Art Online as the best anime that occupies the fifth position in 2012. Not only the story line full of surprises and challenges, Sword Art Online also tells about kehidpan love story anatara Kirito and Asuna, and Suguha, Kirito's sister who plays Leafa in Al fheim online secretly likes Kirito, so the romance element in this anime is more inclined toward romance than adventure.
This anime kekuragan the romance story that is so thick that sometimes a bit boring for those who love anime genre adventure. But overall this anime is cool, and worth watching by the viewers in Indonesia.
The novel version of SAO itself still continues, whether the next session of SAO will appear. Let's wait ... ..
Umpteen anime review from me and....
