Sword Art Online Alternative: Gun Gale Online

This Anime was honestly really good and interesting, the story was a bit rushed due to the fact that the series wasn't apart of the canon SAO story, but did take place in the same universe. When this anime was done i was honestly hoping for a second season. The character development, the story, the fights and everything about this anime was really good even though it was a side story, this is a highly recommended show for those who enjoy a military themed anime, and girls!
