I liked Sword Art: Online a lot to the extent that it was once my favourite anime, but as anyone who's watched it will know there's a huge change halfway through the season which... kind of threw me haha. It's hard to write much more without spoiling the big moment for anyone who's yet to reach that point, but basically I think they could've stretched the story out a lot more with it still being incredibly watchable. I just feel like the whole of the first half of the series was... a little wasted? It's all leading up to this huge dramatic point and then
they skip out the last quarter of the 100 floors of Aincrad and no one even wins the final boss battle properly! Although the twist with whom the boss actually is was a wonderful surprise.
I just think it would have been a lot more enjoyable if it wasn't so rushed, it feels like they could have easily spent a lot more time on the 60 or so floors that they skipped over.
