After finishing up “Star Wars: The Clone Wars” wanted to take a break and do something different besides “Star Wars: Clone Wars” as I’d like to save that when we get closer to “The Force Awakens.” I’ve always been a fan of anime and this show was recommending to me a few times. It is also different enough from “Avatar: The Last Airbender” that I don’t think the episodic reviews would clash together.
The show as created by Reki Kawahara, produced by A-1 Pictures it ran through 2012 and has a second series (I’m just going to be reviewing the first one and not any of the manga) and was directed by Tomohiko Ito.
The premise of the show is the creator Akihiko Kayaba of “Sword Art Online” which is an MMORPG that is connected to the brain and body, traps all the players in the game and if they die they die in real life. It is up to Kazuto who played with the first 1000 in the Beta. He is the main protagonist whose loner life soon becomes a part of so many other lives.
