    "I've seen this one when I was in high school, and it pretty much tells the story of a swordsman's adventure. Kenshin Himura fits the role of being the manslayer for having the perfect characteristics and features. 5 stars for this one!!"

    "For goodness sake, Sword Art Online is NOT a manly anime. It panders to the whims of emo edgy gamer bois who are addicted to PUBG, League of Legends and Minecraft, and they wanted to become a gamer god with a harem full of hot waifus. If you want to become a real MAN, avoid this anime at all cost."
