I've actually watched it twice, by you calling it perfect i can assume you haven't watched many anime.

Everybody has different tastes.
I have watched many Anime titles and I still enjoy Sao.

I never said Sao was a bad anime, just not perfection by any means(IMO).

What "a lot" is depends on the eye of the beholder and to say it is perfect with all of its flaws is a insult to anything that is near perfection which in this case i believe code geass is.I ripped this quote off a website about anime, although the poster was a tad harsher than I am he lists all the flaws needed to prove my point:
Since I've seen a plethora of scores of 10 for this show, I thought I'd write what I feel is a more realistic review for this show. Sword Art Online is more or less the equivalent of a fanfiction in it's writing and quality. Whether people want to overlook it or not is up to the individual, but I believe it fails at the fundamentals for writing a good story. This review will go into details as to my opinions on why I feel this way.

1) Story - This is first major problem is the show. Let's start from the beginning shall we. The first arc consists of 14 episodes. The first 2 episodes are honestly pretty good and set up the plot of the show that should follow. You're introduced to the main characters and it shows mmo style of play. I mean with 2 episodes that are amazing, surely what follows will be more of the adventures of the main characters and these mmo boss fights...right? Wrong. What follows are 5 completely irrelevant side character episodes and unnecessary terrible time skips that ruin any sense of a story the first 2 episodes set up. So due to some illogical reason, we're now down to 7 episodes to tell the rest of this story. Still doable right? RIGHT? Wrong again. The series wastes another 2 1/2 episodes on pointless filler garbage. So there you have it over half of first part of the story has nothing to do with the overall plot. Well what about the other episodes you ask? The remaining "plot" episodes are filled with deus ex machina in its purest form. Even the finale of the first season makes absolutely no sense. This isn't a fantasy world, it's a freaking video game, you can't have miracles here. So that concludes my issues with season 1, which the majority of SAO fans consider to be the best part....Yeh you heard me, the 2nd part is even worse.
Without going into spoilers, the 2nd part of the series takes place in a different setting, with a mostly new cast aside from our main hero. This part of the series probably deserves the award for most unnecessary story in the history of anime. This arc is pretty much a mario game. Our hero must save the princess in the castle. Not really much to say about it. Oh yeh deus ex machina finale here too...oh and there's an incest subplot...for some reason. This concludes the plot section. I think I'm being pretty generous with a 4 here.

2) Art - The art is fantastic. Colorful characters, bosses (the few we see), and settings are all here. It's easily worth an 8.

3) Sound - Again fantastic. Nothing wrong with it at all. 8.

4)Characters - Here we go...This is easily the worst part of the series. I'll separate the main characters and lump together the not so main characters.

Kirito/Kazuto - The main character of this show is the epitome of the current definition of a "Gary Stu". He has no personality whatsoever. He is good at everything he tries for no reason. He's an amazing player, an super sleuth, a ladies man, and a master hacker. You name it, he can do it. There's no reason given for this other than he's just that good. Girls all love him, guys want to be him, and villains are jealous of him. He also solos MMO boss fights...yeh wrap your head around that one. Side note - I often see people claim they love this show because they're hardcore gamers. I have to say as an avid gamer myself I find this show to be insulting. Unless you've hacked or cheated , I don't understand why you're content with a character who does. Side note over.

Asuna - The main female lead/most blatant waifu character ever. Asuna is introduced as a strong player who can stand on her own with Kirito, that is for the first couple episodes. Once she reappears she barely does anything other than cook for Kirito. That's right, her ass stays in the kitchen, while Kirito does all the important stuff. In part 2 she does absolutely nothing...seriously. She again has no original personality...textbook Tsundere.

Yui - This character is terrible in all senses of the word. She's walking deus ex machina, nothing more. This character should be hated by any gamer, since she's a cheat device, who adds nothing to the story.

Villains (minor spoilers) - There are 2 major villains in this series and they're both terrible. The first one forgets his motives for doing everything in part 1 and the part 2 one is so comically evil he can't even be taken seriously.

Other Characters/ Who the hell cares - The female characters all want to have sex with Kirito and have no personality past this. The male characters don't get to do anything because Kirito hogs the show from everyone. That's really all there is to say about that.

Suguha - This is Kirito's sister. She honestly has layers and was a plus to the show in my opinion. I don't know why she's in this show, she doesn't belong in it...

So yeh, Gary Stu and Waifu - these characters are pathetic (1).

5) Enjoyment - Needless to say I didn't enjoy it. Poor show (3)

6) Overall - This show has so many fans, and I really don't know why. It's plot is rushed and terrible. It's characters so flat, it's almost funny...almost. It's romance is highly misogynistic and terribly developed. I felt insulted watching this, and don't understand how any could like this show. Even Gamers. show less

Well. I understand why you don't like it. And I'm not trying to change your mind. I was just saying just because somebody likes an anime you don't like doesn't mean they don't watch a lot of anime.

Again never said I didn't like it, just said its not perfection and also again the "alot" is in the eye of the beholder.

I'll include a few detailed reasons on my choice, but first I must say this: What makes me sad is that I did not see the title "One Piece" in the poll. Don't get me wrong, I love Sword Art Online but One Piece is simply the anime to rule them all. I'm not just saying this either... I'll in fact give you a few good reasons why it's the best.

1. The Story Line. The Story Line is heartfelt and it just pulls you in. It honestly feels like your in the story yourself!

2. The Characters. The Characters are so well thought out, each with a unique personality and a unique skill set. (Even the temporary characters are!)

3. The Artwork. The Artist(s) do an amazing job, the detail is amazing! Even the older episodes from the 1990's are well-drawn. But let's not forget about today's episodes... full HD and the artwork has outdone every single anime easily.

4. The Episodes. The Arcs are llllloooonnnngggg and filled with storyline. The Arcs don't even feel like Arcs at all honestly... they just feel like an exciting pump to the story! There are 640+ episodes and counting, making it the longest running anime up to date.

5. The Powers. In One Piece they use guns, swords, ect... but the best part of it are the Devil Fruits. When eating one of these fruits you gain extraordinary power but you also lose your ability to swim! Since the show is based on pirates, it is a wonderful idea to balance out the amazing powers.

---------------------------
The first few episodes I was confused but after I finished the first few, everything started to make sense and it became not only my favorite anime of all time, but my favorite show of all time. In my book it outranks all entertainment.

Overall, I would rate One Piece a 10/10. If you don't agree... you obviously never have watched it.

---------------------------

One Piece is rated TV-14

(Some Alcohol, Mild Language, and Violence.)
The violence isn't too bad in One Piece, just some blood and scars but not much at all.
Some joke about Alcohol, and some drinking of it.
Some cursing, but only softer words. There is no strong language in One Piece.

I don't agree with everything in it, but overall it is an amazing series.

If you are under the age of 14, please ask a parent or guardian to watch One Piece.

I would not be dull enough to copy a resource without giving any recognition to the original author. I made that article, and it is 100% original. I would just like to ask you why you might think I copied my post. Don't get me wrong, I never said Sword Art Online was bad it was a wonderful series. But One Piece is definitely the best anime of all time.

If you don't believe I wrote that article myself, copy and pate it, then google it. It took me a good ten minutes to think of that and then write it. Besides, what do you mean that I don't understand anime very well? I love anime, and I've watched many anime series throughout my life. As I stated before, why in the world do you think we don't understand anime very well? I put time and effort into my post and like I said, I don't copy my posts.

I wouldn't dare post a non-detailed one liner... they are pretty much considered spam and are annoying to the average forumer. If you put time and effort into your post it looks nice and people begin to appreciate it. :)

I like the talk guys personally i thnk Code Geass is better only cuz of how much action and how amazing the storyline is. A rebel kid goes against his father because his mother was killed and later finds out his mother was working with his father. I like the knight of Zero Suzaku the most but of course Lelouch is better and way cooler. Good show and i love it but hey maybe ill like SAO wen i watch season 2 in July. GUN GALE ONLINE is the new game they play in season 2. Both amazing animes 2 of the best they are my top 2. I LOVE EM ALL

Massacre We have are similarities but, I loved Sword Art Online's animation and music. It was perfection, my favorite anime. The only one that comes close to SAO is Attack on titian.
