    YES YES YES!!!!!

  • Kevin Patrick Faultner

    I personally would have preferred a show with tighter writing, characterization and storytelling like Accel World or Madoka Magica, but as far as casual fare goes, you could do far worse than Swrod Art Online. Consider me on board.

    I’m guessing that this will be the show that replaces Eureka 7?

      That would fit with the August premiere. Eureka 7 ends mid-August baring pre-emptions.

  • AnbuKaru

    I personally love this new…been looking forward to watching this show for some time

  • Rayshawn

    Great news! Very happy it’s a new show and not a rerun.

  • Zero

    This is good thing, but where does it go 2am?

    • http://twitter.com/Sketch1984 Sketch

      2am or possibly 1:30 or 1am depending on how One Piece and Soul Eater do. Most of all I hope for expansion because 2am premieres are balls.

  • FinchoMatic

    Never seen it, heard numerous people say it was good (seen below as well) seen a review and I’m looking forward to it. Don’t spoil anything in the comments :)

  • Alexander Leach

    It’s going to be damn interesting to see how this show performs… as for a time slot, some (including myself) are predicting it at 2:30am, once Eureka Seven finishes its run.

    • John Ramirez

      Well Sword Art is a dub premiere so ‘m putting money on 1:30 or 12:30 is they don’t mind breaking up The Big 3.

      • Mello

        Well they should because I’m not a one piece fan so I would prefer if they put sword art online at 1 pm because I do not want Naruto to put at later time slot.

        • NonHyped

          I prefer they move Naruto; now wait hear me out. First of all One Piece is in higher HD and that crispy vision will attract more viewers. There will be no way they will ever get Shippueden from Disney and with all those fillers, the manga is their last stand. Only way we can find a solution is finding a extension for a earlier time. Overall, there are plenty of shows I can see coming to Toonami in the Future, Kenichi, D Greyman, Ghost Hunt, Sands of Destruction, Samurai Champloo, and maybe even Full Metal Panic :)

  • Tyrese Smith

    I can see this replacing Thundercars, seeing as it airs in august, I’m predicting a August 17th release date

  • cement

    yay!!!! i hope this take igpx time slot n moves it back….. or eureka….. at least toonami is changing things up….. hope fully they get somethin else in the future… like some seinen…..


    Someone go answer that phone because I f&£%*?! Called it

  • Cassandra Suzanne

    I am sooo stoked, this is the best thing I could imagine. I can’t wait to see it again dubbed.

  • Guest

    my friends always talk about SAO so from what i heard its supposed to be pretty sweet

  • Sub_Zero

    my friends tell me SAO is awesome so i can’t wait to see it “the story is awesome, the art is awesome you’ll love it” but i want to see it for myself, SAO here i come

  • Xero

    A new anime can’t wait to see how this pans out >.<

  • herroicage


  • Damien

    i still wish we would get angel beats or something alitle more heart felt and less action anime

  • Anthony Matute

    In a week SAO will replace either thundercats or sym bionic titan and then the other show will be replaced by fairy tail SAO will air a 2am.

  • Wicovo

    The sub version of this was amazing I hope this will turn out great
