It hasn't been "definitively" stated that it is, but it was the final arc in the web novel version, so it more than likely will be the final arc in the light novels, unless Kawahara plans on changing the ending.

Over all it's a good read, the story is up and running along just fine, and a lot of questions that people have from vol.9 should be answered.

So since volume 10 is the last volume in the Light Novel, is there anything decided on the KiriAsu relationship? Asuna's parents' thoughts? I'm sad to see it end... even though I've known about the series for about 3-4 weeks. Loved the SAO arc and all of its side stories.

err, vol.10 is not the last volume. People who have read the Alicization arc says it isn't likely to be concluded 'til vol. 14 at the earliest. As a matter of fact, much of vol.10's Underworld portion of the story wasn't even in the web novel, Kawahara wrote in extra material to expand the story that was passed over by a time skip.

it was a part time job, so probably not very high :P

Actually no, Volume 10 is PART of the Alicization Arc. SAO is expected to go on up to Volume 14-15.

Caliber-SS route was a fast read. It's short, but illuminates some things.

Spoiler for Caliber-SS route thoughts:

Yay, time to look through the Chinese translations. Those Japanese to Chinese people work fast but it sounds so terminology heavy that I think I'm going to dread it. There better be some good romantic moments because from what Flere said it seems quite actiony. And tbh SAO should probably end after this volume(at least within 2 volumes), imo i feel like this whole story is being dragged on too long

eh, it's not that bad, though there isn't much romantic elements in this volume.

and if the web novels were any indication, chances are there will be another 3-5 volumes just to conclude Alicization, it's by far the biggest arc in SAO.

The BT page's update section says it was deleted for now and refers to a link to a forum discussion page for why, but I didn't really see anything on that discussion page that warranted getting rid of the chapter translation. Unless they deleted it because the discussion on the forum page talks about how it wasn't actually the author's work? (I think)

The forum discussion page in question as linked on BT's SAO page.

Meh, if anyone wants it, the Epub version that Simon (BT forumite) put out has 16.5 merged in Chapter 16 proper, which is why I initially thought it was part of the published release. If anyone wants it... I suppose I could provide delicious copy pasta.

Aha. I see.

Apparently it's because some people felt it wasn't appropriate for Baka Tsuki, amongst some other things. And that's fair enough, I suppose.

It's still canon in my eyes. *shrug*

Last time I checked it was moved from Vol. 1 to side stories, now it has been deleted? It has been around for a long time, so most readers know 16.5 by now.

Just finished Caliber SS, now I'm with the 'Klein-san's so cool!' faction, he saved two worlds, Alfheim and Midgard

And that apparently they "are translating the light novels and not the web novel" xD

But otherwise it's not much of a loss, probably will become an inside joke that divides the LN and new anime fans lol. Hell glopping is becoming a forced meme of all things.

I wonder how the JSDF are going to ensure that their A.Is don't turn upon them. Failing to recognize A.I rights is a surefire way to create trouble down the line. Plus, who are they going to send those A.Is up against? Somali Pirates? Terrorist Groups? Surely not the Koreans or Chinese, nor the Russians, war in East Asia would likely end up in local mushroom clouds that'd knock 10 years off the regions' development at least, and likely would lead to the toppling of most of the region's governments. A.I or no A.I.

In my view, Kirito is right. A.I rights need to be established as early as possible, else humanity is going to be in a world of hurt down the line. The biggest thread to the SAO world are A.Is who end up hating humanity.

Sometimes I wonder whether you guys are just driven by the PLOT instead of the plot...

Anyway, I don't intend to argue about it since it's gone, just that I feel it's 2 years overdue.

It's not actually a sacrifice for volume 10 since I was planning to finish that up and be done and over with it, and I only said that partly in jest. But when I have Kyubey as my avatar, it has far-reaching consequences...

You better start praying that I finish Baka Test 9.5 and Unicorn 3 fast though unless you can get another translator to help It's 339 pages long as far as I know, shorter than v9 by around 70 pages.
