From a near future where virtual reality games had evolved, we have anime show Sword Art Online (SAO - ソードアート・オンライン) where players control their avatars with advanced technology. Moe images after the jump:
Somehow this show reminds me .Hack/Sign mostly because players live in a MMORPG game.
Principal characters are Asuna and Kazuto.
Is SOA in your watchlist?
