Sword Art Online Movie: Ordinal Scale

** Please excuse me if my english isn’t that good. Japanese is my main language! Also, I am giving each ‘segment’ a mark out of 10! **

Spoiler free!

Story: 9

The story is based on SAO, so nothing to really say here. Though the plot itself is better and not as flat as the original SAO anime. There are mysteries in this movie but you realise what is happening before they show you.

Art: 9
==========
The art is WOW. Amazing. Expected from an anime show that is so famous for their character design and not the actual plot. The animations are also really on point and natural.

==========
Sound: 8
==========
The background music compliments the scene really well. It builds up the emotions and tension. The ending song ‘Catch The Moment’ by LiSA is amazing. When everyone started leaving, I just sat there listening to it.

==========
Character: 8
==========
Character designs are one thing that got SAO in such a huge viral in the anime industry. Often people say that the design is nice but the personality of the character is flat and is full of holes. However, in this movie, they managed to make this movie a success by actually putting the heart into making the characters relatable. Could still improve, but really good as it is now.

==========
Enjoyment: 9
==========
I loved this show. Yes, there was forced moments and fanservice. But it was good. I mean, who would go and watch an anime if they expected NO fanservice AT ALL? Not possible if I have to say.

==========
Overall: 9
==========
It is amazing. The plot was well developed and I understood everything in the movie.
