Sword Art Online is one of the most popular anime releases in recent memory, and because of the series' wide audience, it often has a split reputation. There are just as many people who dislike the series as there are dedicated fans.
Before the third season of the mainline series begins, the franchise received a new spin-off series in Sword Art Online Alternative: Gun Gale Online and fans were wondering what side of the debate they would land on with it as fans wondered how many things the spin-off would adapt from the original.
But the first episode of Gun Gale Online took fans by surprise and delivered quite a good first impression. Fans are definitely loving the series so far, and can't wait to see what comes from it next.
