I mean, yeah they were a PK guild but it is indicated that Klein and Asuna who were there too got by without killing their opponents.
In his defence, if Kirito didn't fight as fiercely as he did they would have been more casualties among the players who invaded Laughing Coffin's hideout. How much of this is Asuna placing Kirito on a pedestal is another matter though

In which novel/chapter did they raid the Laughing Coffin's hideout? Somehow I completely missed it.

Vol6, it's a flashback chapter. I don't think it's up on BakaTsuki yet?

Guys, i never read a light novel but it's that good to read on a computer ?
In same time, it's not difficult for someone who is not a american or english guy ?
And finally, from the spoilers, Sword Art Online is not the name of the game but just of the Light Novel ?
I don't funny understand all of the things. ^^
How many games they have ?

@Shiroi: I read on my Tablet. Its more natural that way.
The English is straightforward, although the translators did great in conveying the authors engaging writing style.

Yes SAO is both the game and Light Novel title. One rationale is that it all started with SAO so Subsiquent arcs are called SAO: Fairy Dance, SAO: Phantom Bullet etc.

Naw it's Accel World MMORPG. With players, monsters and NPC's being near human like AI's.

Thanks for the summaries, Flere. :3

What about Friendly A.Is? The Underworld seems to be an attempt to ensure that Military A.Is end up as Friendly A.Is. Perhaps we should be thankful Kirito is inside.

Spoiler for Volume 10 Questions:


I think the problem with the Accel World theory is that A.I technology, as far as we know doesn't seem all that advanced, considering the state it is in by Alicization in SAO.

Truly, Kirito is coming of age at the start of humanity's technological singularity.

And UW Smells of Epicness.

Nope still seperate universes in the author's words.
They stay that way till the author gives a definate statement.

I think the author likes to tease us with this though.

Perhaps the JSDF did ask him directly in the Underworld. It's possible to sell the idea to him, if you told him that the aim was to cultivate friendly A.Is.

Since A.I technology is inevitable at this stage, the best chance is to manage that emerging technology, and ensure that the sentient that humanity makes do not turn on their makers (in Halo parlance, go rampant). Ultimately, the descendants of Alice and Yui may well be running entire cities down to the smallest detail.

Besides, every nation arguably are developing their own A.Is for both Civil and Military uses. And A.Is can't be more destructive than nukes already are. Japan needs it's own A.Is, lest it be left in the dust by the likes of South Korea and China, or the Western Nations.

In SAO, the Singularity has already begun. I would imagine that merely possessing Yui would make Kirito and Asuna's lives very interesting....

Personal A.Is, anyone?

Wow, this is turning out very exciting. I'm so looking forward to the rest of this arc. Has it been definitively stated anywhere that Alicization is the final arc or not?
