Sword Art Online available on Netflix Instant Streaming


Yet another reason to play catch-up

If you've been putting off watching Sword Art Online because the box sets cost more than you can afford to spend, and not because you've heard mixed reviews from all your friends, you're in luck. While your friends debate whether or not the anime is one of the best to have aired in recent years, not having watched it at all will leave you in the middle scratching your head. Fortunately you have a new option for catching up with the rest of us.

Starting today, the series can be streamed online via Netflix. This is in addition to already being available through Hulu, CrunchyRoll, and Daisuki, as well as being aired on Cartoon Network's Toonami block each week. In short, it's almost impossible to miss. If, on the other hand, you've got cash to burn and you'd rather purchase the series, all four volumes are currently available through select retailers. At the very least, you have one more method through which to recommend the series to your friends. They might love you, or curse you for it, but at least you can try.
