Actually, SAO never meant to be harem-like. It seems that it's only because there's not much thing to write so the author added some fill-ins.

Then the author should just have didn't add it. The web version even had ecchi chapters though it's remove in the released book.

The story revolves in Kirito in VR games. No wonder the real story when Alocization starts. The girls just seem forced for me. It's like playing vn game with force ecchi scenes and it's boring.

It seems that you do not like harem and ecchi scenes,right?But let's face it,light novels are mainly for the Japanese market and the reality is that Japanese light novel fans and otaku like harem and ecchi scenes.Right now,light novels with harem element which have some fan service/ecchi scenes dominate the Japanese light novel market.It's a trend among the otakus,so it's understandable that the author wants to add some harem elements in the series itself.However,SAO is actually one of the few harem light novels which has minimal fan service or ecchi scenes.There is only one Chapter 16.5 that contains ecchi or hentai scenes which I think should not be considered as a part of the main story and only for those who like ecchi.

As far as I know Tsunade, not really, just like beginning a harem where the fight is already lost ( Asuna is the end girl ... Or should I say the girl of the beginning ), it's adding pain for nothing.

Look at how Sugu became when she learnt who was Kirito. I was "argggh". Sometime plain romance is better than going into the harem... Though I must say that because volume 1 was my favorite, the chara development was great and everything.

Which bottom left, the image at the top of the page, or the links at the bottom? I think the one is Fear from C^3, the other is from Kyoukai Senjou no Horizon I think?

It's badass though, since the rest of the story will probably happen in ALO ( I mean V7 + ), you should read it to get the setting.

I didn't want to read it too, but the author is really good, even without the perfect couple, He gave me the will the read.

Don't really like how there are still girls pining for Kirito when Asuna already won him over (so per se as you guys seem to imply, and from what I interpret from novel illustrations), and with still almost zero information about the novels (I admit I'm pretty lazy to skim through the pages) but anime coming out... Can't really ignore this any longer (but I still ain't gonna skim through the pages, hehe).

... I think I remember now. I stopped halfway in the first volume, or so if memory serves.
