Alicization arc seems to be on hold...I don't really know the details though.

EDIT: After checking, Teh_Ping will do it.

Although I knew much of the detail but I won't spoil it here because Alicization arc involves spoiler from the Phantom Bullet arc (GGO).

But don't worry, the Kirito/Kazuto we know is still our protagonist in this arc.

thanks mate
kirito is one of my favorite protagonists so a history of "SAO" without him would no longer be "SAO"=D

I actually have yet to follow this LN personally I like Accel World better, but I thought SAO is pretty much the protagonists getting into trouble in MMORPG, getting out of it only to be getting back into it in another game...

I guess that works for a really simplified summary, I'd say it's slightly more complex than that though. Really just read volume 1, it's a good introductory novel.

I know it was more complicated than that and I did read a bit of V1 online, it just didn't register to me like Accel World did. Although maybe I just have problem with MMO games. I liked .Hack series before I realizes they just keep re-using the same setting and concentrate only on the in-game aspect of the characters.

Though with that being said, I'm planning on watching the series and then decide if I want to spend the money and digging myself into another LN holes.

If I remember well, people said that Accel World had many plot holes...don't know if it's true though.

There are some holes but nothing out of ordinary considering the genre. (sci-fi, action,battle)

Beside too many plot points are still in the dark so it's hard to say.

I personally find the actual writing and pace to be better. (again compare what little I read in SAO V1 and based on official Chinese version) And I simply like the cast better as well as that it seems to have much more character interaction (in real live) which is also what draws me to that series.

I think I am just at the opposite end. SAO characters are much more closer to me than AW characters do. I always feel something odd while reading AW and eventually I dropped it. And at the same time, I am getting more and more committed to SAO over time.

I just started and wow... the whole setup had me addicted. I could also feel something funny going on when I arrived at the final chapter of volume 3. Clearly something is up.

I just can't wait for the anime anymore XD.

They're the same author... But I don't think they happen in the same universe. I can already point several differences when I started reading SAO: like how SAO is missing that neuro-link thingy commonly used in AW.

And while SAO is modded off from MMORPG that promotes adventuring and interacting with people, AW is more PvP based gaming....

*Avid AW follower here*

Think I read somewhere that AW is set 100 or more years in the future from SAO. So they are set in the same world, just different time periods

So SAO's a prequel to Accel World?

I just finished checking another site, and it said they may be set in the same universe. If so, it is only around 20 years ahead. SAO begins at 2022, and Accel World starts at 2046.

Yeah this is right. There's also the theory about the main heroine of AW being Kirito and Asuna's kid since we keep not getting her name whenever it comes up.

I am not 100 percent sure SAO is a prequel to AW but I do agree and sure that SAO and AW are in the same universe, just like Nasuverse's Kara no Kyoukai, Tsukuhime and Fate. Instead I would personally declare SAO and AW are in the "Rekiverse". The relationship between SAO and AW will become more apparent when SAO enters the 4th arc: Alicization.

On the accel world manga, chapter 2, page 12, when talking about neuro links, it shows a precurser to the neuro links from a.d. 2020~ (a helmet VR interface) that looks like NervGear in my opinion

i suspected this already...it's so confusing
but well it's good enough right
i mean both novels are good so it is fine,however if kirito and asuna appear in AW i don't know if i would still like it in the same way,personally i don't like when they put old protagonists as support characters it just doesn't feel right to me :/
