    Sword Art Online

    Post by Magic Man on Mon Oct 08, 2012 10:27 pm



    The year is 2022, and gamers have lined up on launch day for Sword Art Online, a hotly-anticipated MMORPG that lets players connect to an immersive virtual reality world with special helmets called Nerve Gear. Kirito is one such gamer who's eager to jump back into action, having spent a great deal of time as a beta tester, and quickly becomes friends with newbie warrior Klein. But soon, Sword Art Online's 10,000 players discover that not only are they unable to log out, the only way they can return to their physical bodies is by beating the 100-level tower's final boss - that is, if their HP doesn't drop to zero first, for death in the game means death in the real world. Now, with no one else to turn to, Kirito and the other participants must survive the game as best they can – some forming guilds, others ruthlessly leaving their peers behind, and many tragically falling by the wayside or to the merciless monsters populating the lands...

    A lot of people have been talking about this lately, and for good reason. Probably only one of the actually good titles from the summer line-up and its 1st half just ended on a high note.

    I'll have to check it out some time.

    Is this anime about anything else other than KiritoxAsuna.

    Saw the first episode after reading this thread and I am starting to love it already. If it weren't for the fact that dying meant DYING, I would love to play that game.

    Summer really kept me occupied with anime. Even though fall now beats that. Compared to other seasons, it got me interested in more anime at the time they were airing. Still, SAO is, as well as Kokoro Connect at the top of my list for summer.

    I even like the ridiculous amount of time they give for what is side stories in the light novels, it is good development, and was clearly a good idea to do it chronologically. I'm saying this even though I haven't read them, I've just heard a lot about it. <3 Pina.

    Honestly, if you haven't seen too many people obsessing over it, that would be far from a legitimate question. Regardless of what it is, I would say read the synopsis, as it proves the answer to your question is yes. If you like anime, and you've enjoyed an MMO anytime in your life, you should like it.
    That last post ^ is what I'm talking about.

    From what I've heard, it's a cool watch, but it's a serious .hack rip off and the plot has 5+ holes/inconsistencies in it that can ruin the entire experience.

    So far I haven't seen any plot holes. Also apparently this and .hack both started up around the same time.

    " both series started around the same time in 2002. Sword Art Online was originally meant as an entry for the Dengeki Novel Prize contest but Reki Kawahara didn't submit it because it exceeded the page limit so he published it as a webnovel under the pseudonym Fumio Kunori. It was only after the popularity of his second novel series Accel World that his publishers convinced him to release Sword Art Online as an light novel in 2009."
