Review: I was told by a friend to watch it back in 2012, and I loved the anime. I loved the dialogue, the characters, the scenery. Though, my harem senses were tingling at that time, and what go you know; GGO turns into a harem. There was a lot of stuff added in the costumes, and the creator paid a lot of attention to that too, it seems. And unlike other artists, who use the background characters/ crowd with monotone, grey colours, this artist actually makes it into a crowd, not a mess of melancholy. ALO, is another story. I loved the wings, costumes, and again, THE INTRICATE DETAIL THOUGH! I really liked its already known plot twists, like with Kazuya, and his sister (Sunoha[?])
Rating: I loved its whole dialogue-- except for in ALO. The romance was kind of rushed, and jumbled. Lets put it into an analogy; you plant a seed. By the first 2 weeks, it pops from the ground. The next week, the stem begins to grow. By the next day, the stem grew fully, and the flower completely bloomed. Within a few hours, it died. Now with GGO, I noticed that it has not only become a harem, but it.. Has.. Become... Ecchi. In the third episode, it panty shot Shion, for more than a minute. It isnt that much ecchi, but it still is. The manga is limited to some places, and apparently theres 1 chapter, which will make perverted kokoros go doki doki.
What to watch out for:
- plot twists
- Kazuyas sister
- the person in the cloak
- the date shown at the beginning of the episodes
What you will need:
- a pillow
- something to avoid making marks on your hands from your nails
- some tissues [?]
