I dunno, I just really find it funny when new information is compared to old information.

Yes, because random crap some random animators throw into their adaptations obviously trumps the author's explicit statement

I don't know...AFAIK the author's words were more like "I'm not sure, but until then, assume no."

Nope, it was pretty clear, he said that his position is that there is no clear/direct link between the two series, I don't know how much clearer he can get.

Hey I just read a thread w/ spoilers about the upcoming SAO Vol. 11 based on chapter V + of the web novels and it seems things have had a somewhat progressively darker tone.

Spoiler for Spoiler content:


Granted that all of this is happening in UNDERWORLD and the people involved are AIs cept for Kirito but man that's just harsh.

Anybody here that can confirm this?

No one can confirm if volume 11 will include that because it hasn't been released yet. The web novel did have those elements.

I just hope it isn't going to be too dark. Somebody please tell me it isn't that depressing

Eh, it's not as if there wasn't a whole lot of (offscreen) deaths in the aincrad arc. As long as it makes sense within the context of the story, I'm fine with it personally.

I'm far more concerned with the straight up outlandish premises in the later parts of Alicization, which tbh sounds more like out-of-control fanfics.

Hopefully that gets some significant revision for the published novel.

The Web LNs was. Dunno about the upcoming paper volume though. I've seen the Chinese translators theorizing it might be toned down too, but I would not be surprised if this @#%& was left in.

Technically speaking, both Aincrad and GGO had a few on screen murders, and a few other on screen deaths, in addition to all the offscreen deaths.

I have no idea how to feel about this. And that's mainly because it seems like a really bad fanfic. I've had enough of those, kthnx.

I don't think it's canon.. but that's for Kawahara to decide..

I think Seiken no Blacksmith had a rape scene, which was latter removed/toned down in reprints, so I guess SAO will be the same?

And then ? There is no reason not to consider them human.
( Or it would be like reading Negima and approving Kosmos Entelechia's opinion about the "puppets" )

About the Vol 11 special scenes
I hope he keep them as close of the web-novel as he can, but, to be honest, it's unlikely. (since it's a publication, his editor might force his to tone it down)

Because, I love Kawahara's villains (mainly, Sugou and Noumi). Some people find he write them over-the-top, with some cartoonery villainy, but it's something i enjoy a lot in his story : He manage to make hateful villains and build up so much RAGE that their downfall is only more satisfying.

SAO and Accel World are not linked
I understood Kawahara's tweet more like a "Screw you, KYH is not their child !".
Because there is already so much evidence that the technology is the same, it's impossible for his to disprove it entirely, now.

It can also be interpreted as "Accel is not in the same timeline than SAO" :

It depends. But I'm not going to get into a fight over this. It's all speculation for me anyways just to get my SAO fix until Rondo gets fully translated and Vol. 11 comes out. :P
