Sword Art Online's timeline starts 2022.
Accel World's timeline starts 2145.

If you think about it Accel World is a spiritual successor to SAO.

Where did you get 2145 from? People are coming up with really weird years here.

The Accel World manga (volume 1, page 58) states that the "neurolinker" that the characters use to connect to the virtual world was developed "AD 2040~", and later it states that "no one older than age 15 can access the Accelerated World, so that puts the date around 2055-ish, I think.

you fans must be pleased that SAO got no.1 in "This LN is Amazing 2012".

Pretty normal I believe, the skill of the writer are exceptionnal honestly, the only LN where I can nearly see the hero moving and feel his emotions.

Meeh, yes i'm glad.

It's surprisingly that what was originally a web novel got no.1 without an anime.

Speaking of that, the second web novel Dengeki picked up (in fact the second of its kind, ie. commercialized web novels), Mahouka Koukou no Rettousei (with just 3 volumes) debuted at 29. I have a feeling it's going to be another winner like SAO.

EDIT:
Kirito is no. 1 (male)
Asuna is no. 2 (female)

Well, it's a surprise. I thought the popularity of SAO is lower compared to To Aru Majutsu no Index but to think SAO can beat Index, hmm.. interesting.

Whatever it is, I am happy that SAO got the No.1 title without an anime and still has a trump card in the author's hand (if you had read the web version, you know what I mean).

PS: No wonder SAO is called the ultimate weapon of Dengeki by the fans.

It is lower, the number one spot for "Kono Light Novel ga Sugoi" just changes every year. Index still outsells SAO 250k to 80k.

It might have been asked, but why did SAO raise this year, and not before?

To me, this is another series that starts out well then takes a dive after the first major plot point. Still will be good to watch for a while I guess.

because of anime announcement and people are excited with it but honestly I like the first few arcs but the novel decide to delay the next arc and do the side stories of the web version which is not what I wanted but still they manage to be rank one despite all that. Though not sure in term of sold value because if I remember it right haganai is still have higher sales than sao.

Haganai had an Anime announcement earlier than SAO, so I'm pretty sure it didn't help that much. Anyway There's really too many factors to consider, remember it's not only the popularity with the mainstream audience, there's also the collaborators.

The chara design for both anime bland as hell. >_>

Need the actual footage for further judgment though, the colouring (especially if superb) might help a lot.

How high are the chances of being a 2 core anime?

This promo art is straight from abec, so they're just like the light novel ones. I'm betting A-1's will look slightly different. Besides, she's obviously in her noob lvl 1 gear .

Confirmed 2 cour though. Shinon fans crying buckets of tears of joy everywhere.
