Building the Hype Machine is another take on my First Impression articles. Instead of just looking at my thoughts, we will dive into the twitterverse to see what other people think in just 140 characters. Of course I won’t skimp on my fans and I’ll give a bit of insight into what I think personally about the series after. So without further ado, lets build the hype machine for Sword Art Online.
Not much competition I guess…

Translation from Math: Sword Art Online is less than 33 sextillions… What the fuck?
@apeluliatliat: Sword Art Online ,eh ?
Even if you beat the game, you wake up emaciated in your own shit and piss. You’re better off dying.
People playing Brain Burst in Accel World just have self esteem issues.
I thought pretty girls make everything better… If I were going to die playing a video game I’d at least want to have some great VR sex before I went out.
That explains it… Can you imagine if your character was wearing a thong… #Wherestheballspace
@ShinigamiC: UUUUUuuuuuuuuund schauen wir mal gleich in Sword Art Online rein~
Translation: UUUUUuuuuuuuuund we’ll see the same in pure Sword ~ Art Online… Fuck you google translate.
@ABCBTom: I think the easiest way to summarize Sword Art Online is “World of Gantzcraft”
But in Gantz you’re already dead… Hmmm. Poetic.
Sword Art Online has an excellent first showing flaunting its breathtaking art, believable characters, and clever writing. While it wears it’s .hack influences on its sleeve, SAO finds its own unique flair. Series Creator Reki Kawahara has built a world that is so much more compelling than his other adapted light novel, Accel World. There is a sense of tension and danger that the latter lacks. If you lose in Accel World, you can never play again. In SAO you die. The scarier one is obvious.
I’m ready to log back in next week.
