Re: Is SAO any good?
Personally, I asked myself the same question and I decided to watch some of it to see for myself. Apparently, it is about a boy who he, along with others, get stuck in a game and if you die in the game, you die in real life.

It isn't bad though, it has great artwork and music, but I couldn't get drawn in, it was lacking something for me. I guess if you are a .Hack// fan, you see the resemblance and it gets a little harder for you to like >.< It was like watching Digimon and Pokemon for me in ways. I liked Digimon at first because of the similarities, then I saw how similar it was and I took no interest in it and went back to Pokemon haha xD
As .Hack// is more of an action/thinking kind of anime, SAO to me is more of an action/romance anime, which I tend to focus a little less on haha. Then again, this is my opinion so who knows, you may like it :3
