** Kirito's SurvivorsGuilt seems to disappear at times and he'll back to his cheery NiceGuy self an episode later. This one is [[JustifiedTrope justified]] though. The ''Phantom Bullet'' arc reveals its not that Kirito no longer feels the pain and trauma, [[BrokenAce he's just good at hiding it]]. But scratch the surface and he's still haunted by the horrors he's seen with lapses that are akin to PTSD, such as his flashbacks of being forced to kill members of Laughing Coffin.

** Played straight and fully justified with Yuuki. Even though she's [[TragicAIDsStory terminally ill with AIDs]] she doesn't let this down her spirits. Wary of how little time she has she lives everyday to the fullest, and ends up being an eternally happy GenkiGirl.

Wary of how little time she has AIDs]], she lives everyday to the fullest, and ends up being wary of how little time she has left. Rather than spending her days moping at her misfortune, she instead comes off as an eternally happy GenkiGirl.

** Kirito Vs The Gleam Eyes. How could not one be awed by this fight when seeing Kirito unleash the Starburst Stream? The sheer amount of work put into the animation of the [[BladeSpam 16/20-hit combo]] cannot be denied, and it indeed payed off.

* SugarWiki/AwesomeArt: Say what you will about the plot and character development. One thing that has consistently been praised for SAO is how spectacular the animation is.

** The climactic battle with Death Gun was praised even by haters. Particularly spectacular was when Kirito's SAO avatar gets superimposed over his GGO avatar, when he reaches for his gun to shoot Death Gun.

** Kayaba's debut in the pilot using the [[InTheHood hooded]] "Game Master" avatar. It's immensely creepy where the sky is turns red from being filled with "System Announcement" messages, before what appears to blood drips out from the sides of the popups and forms together into the giant red hooded avatar Kayaba is using.

** For those not won over by the ''Phantom Bullet'' arc, the ''Mother's Rosario'' arc certainly did this. It received acclaim due to the intense emotional journey it takes viewers on and [[RescuedFromTheScrappyHeap improving Asuna as a character]].


Added DiffLines:

** The ''Alicization'' arc is held highly among light novel fans as the best written arc Kawahara has done. Delving into the most creative storyline the series has ever gone into, genuinely terrifying villains, and the introduction of [[EnsembleDarkhorse Eugeo and Alice]]. The anime adaptation has high expectations to live up to.
