Sword Art Online is an Anime (Japanese Cartoon) made by Aniplex USA and A1 Pictures. Originating from a manga of the same name written by Reki Kawahara, it follows the story of Kirito, a huge video game fan, mainly in the MMO genre. During his time, the video game community has changed with the appearance of Virtual Reality Nervegear. Kirito uses the Nervegear to jump into the first MMO for the system, Sword Art Online, or SAO. Shortly after entering, all 6,000 players in the game are trapped inside by the game's creator, Akihiko Kayaba. They are stuck until the game's 100 floors are cleared, and if anyone dies in-game, the Nervegear will malfunction, killing the real person. Kirito must then lead his friends and fellow gamers to escape the cursed world, and get back to reality. Many subplots have followed the main arc. It is currently in its 2nd season, and a movie is in the works.

One of my favorite anime's that ALWAYS gets crapped on by all these dumb hatters who spend their days sitting on couch getting fat and trolling on urban dictionary. *coughs* Anyways, its about a bunch of ppl who get trapped in an mmo vr video game and if you die in the game you die in real life and you have to beat the game to get out alive.
me: i love Sword Art Online
person: omg dude get a life
me: no you, go die in a fricken hole you piece of trash

A japanese show, defined as Anime. A show where the characters (Some how are ALL from Japan) enter a game, known as Sword Art Online. When entering the game, shortly after, the creator of the game, Heathcliff, or whatever his actual name is, alarms them that if they die in the game, they die in real life.. The Game version of Freddy Krueger.
