tsundere-dragon:

Official Art

Just finished SAO last night. I gave it 4/5 hearts.
Maybe I’ll do a more in-depth review on my blog, but for now:I liked the premise, although it’s nothing really new. And I liked how badass Asuna was in the beginning. I’d give the first 13 or so episodes 5/5 stars.But the second half (second season?) in the other game? Eh. 3/5. The BS with his sister and the boob-focus in-game… just DUMB.
