Another anime title this Summer 2012 that’s looking really good is Sword Art Online. The story takes place in 2022, where Virtual Reality gaming development has gained fame through the usage of VR helmets that engage the users’ five senses in order to experience realistic fantasy worlds and scenarios.
Players start flocking to the new game called Sword Art Online, only to soon find themselves in terrible peril orchestrated by the game’s creator. The story centers around a solo player named Kirito, who fights and struggles up the hundred floors of Sword Art Online in order to save his fellow players.
It’s a culmination of great animation, sword clanging, and tearful drama that fans of online gaming and suburban fantasy/science fiction will certainly enjoy.
