  1. Hooray! This is going to be fun watching this without the streaming issues on the internet! Wait, I hope Madman releases this later on after America (if they manage to license season 1 of SAO then they have no excuse in not licensing the OVA!)

  2. Wasnt that impressed as there wasnt enough new content. Even the added story doesnt make it worth picking it up in my opinion. My advice is to stream it rather than buy it!
