Sword Art Online Season One Review

It seems fitting that I would write a blog post about a anime that is about being stuck in a MMO. I going to split this into two reviews because there are two halfs of the first season. Makes sense...right. Let me give you a brief summary of the show.

Let me give you a synopsis on what the author was talking about.
