Do you need to watch Sword Art Online Movies?

No, not mandatory because it doesn’t follow the SAO Series storyline. Movies are not cannon. But still worth watching, if you love the SAO series you would love the movies as well.

Is Sword Art Online Complete?

No, not yet. Its season 5 is going to release in 2022 in November. This season will be going to be the best season among the Sword Art Online series.

Do I need to watch Sword Art Offline?

It is the side story of Sword Art Online with a layer of comedy, not worth watching and I would never recommend you as well. Total waste of time if you are planning to watch this so it’s a humble request to you to save your time and skip that.

Why is Sword Art Online hated?

Every people has their own reason to hate. I am sharing my own reason to dislike, the reason is some of the Sword Art Online episodes contain sexual assault scenes. Basically, they represent girls on them so it’s quite disrespectful.
