Probably to add Alice to his growing list of girls... And to build a connection to Artificial Intelligence produced by STL, hopefully SAO does not end after this Arc, I want to see Kirito go to the US and meet more girls there. xD

If I have a page for comments, it would likely take about 30kb.

...Where to start...

OK so I finished reading chapter 1 of vol 10 and now I know why it took so long to translate. The chapter itself is HUGE. Now I have not read the online novel so i have no idea how it ends but their was one thing i noticed that might come into play later on.

Anyways yeah so much technical and politically controversial information this volume. Can't stop fanboying since I'm such a US political junkie lawlz.

The author is taking his info dump quite seriously indeed. It's not like he started having this habit recently but this time was a bit extreme with all the historical and popular culture references and military masturbation and the gobbles of pseudo-science. You have my sympathies for sifting through that garbage. It was probably ten times as boring to translate as it was to read (and I admit I started skimming towards the end when the talk turned to unarmed drones and all that).

I wish LN authors could leave the political science to the non-fiction authors, we'd probably all be better off that way.

But the journey was worth it because Asuna is finally back in action. And it sure didn't take her long to find Kirito once she knew where to look.

Not a Tom Clancy fan I presume?

But I understand, that was quite the verbose info-dump, but considering the themes that the author went through over the years, it was only a matter of time before he got to the more controversial and complex topics such as this.

I may who knows.
Well that would be nice but we may incur Asuna wrath.

Well, the info dump was bound to happen, but it simply reaffirms my opinion that this author really sucks at writing. Even by light novel standards, his books are really weak. And yet, I love his characters and their interactions and have read each of the novels - twice! Does that make me a hypocrite, or simply someone who enjoys guilty pleasures?

^ He doesn't really suck at writing, well by light novel standards anyway. Content-wise, his game settings were mostly well done, what he sucked in is to try to touch on stuff that he has poor understanding of the subject matter and then coming up with his own theories on what might be possible in a futuristic setting based on his crappy knowledge. Furthermore, some of his ideas (not all however) have no basis (he didn't even try to properly explain how that's possible which reflect on his crappy knowledge) and are pure wild fantasies (this is where Mahouka is superior though the stuff in it might turn some people off). I prefer he sticks to game science or study more on what he tries to write. But still, some parts were nice to read, as long as it's not about science.

I dunno, as I've said a couple of times in this thread, I'm quite the Political Junkie...that combined with my Sci-fi guilty pleasure? This Arc's been a fanwank for me hahaha. But yeah I read some of the Clancy books and enjoyed them.

I also love the characters, I've not been this into pairings since Pokemon Special RS Arc I think... xD But yeah it's nice to have such a stable one like this.

As for the problems with the science in this arc...I'll just suspend my disbelief and roll with it. Could be a worse ASB lawlz.

I'm pretty sure this was reference in Toaru Majutsu no Index as well... whether it is nonsense aside, at least it's not solely SAO series' fault

^ Yeah, someone just reminded me. So he did his research in another work LOL! The funny thing is for Index, I quickly forgot that part, but for SAO, it stuck with me.

I agree.

I think that's the reason Stiyl and Kanzaki initially believed that Index had only limited memory capacity and she needed to be erased of her memories every year. (Am I right?)

EDIT: Kawahara-sensei actually talked a bit about Volume 10 Chapter 2 in his afterword in the same volume. Although he did not talk much about the pseudo-scientific settings there.
