Welcome back to the Imouri Anime Review, where people vote for an anime that the Imouri team will review. Since our last review, it has been a while, and this unique review will be done a bit differently. The review scoring system has been changed for Sword Art Online. Unlike our typical voting, which will return, SAO will be a 3 part video review due to the size of the series.
We began recording the series back in April and wanted to do our first significant anime show. It just so happens that May 2022 was an important date in the SAO time. The NerveGear was released into the market, and soon after, Sword Art Online would release for sale in November 2022. We thought this timeline would be perfect for reviewing SAO in its entirety. Without further ado, here is Part 1 of the anime review.
