Monochrome is likely going to cover floors 3-9, the last floor that was cleared by the beta testers. So if he increases the momentum of the story, SAOP could be much shorter.

Hopefully. He could do what the author of Kyoukai Senjou no Horizon did. Make his books very thick to make the volumes even shorter.

As always, the Chinese TLers moves fast. Not that I am complaining.

All this means is that it'll take an even longer interval between each book's release.

Don't forget, Horizon's author is focusing solely on one series at a time only.

If it's the same then we already have 2/3 of it translated in english with only Rondo needing to be completed.

Well at least BeginnerXP is doing some of Progressive. Although he needs an editor to help him.

Well considering that Progressive is basically some of the first 2 floor's sidestories and doujins repackaged for official publication...Only Rondo needs to be fully translated (Even that is 1/4 done apparently)

Aria is fully translated after all.

I've also ran the "Reason for the whiskers" in Microsoft word to compare it to the doujin translation, and it's essentially the same. With very minor edits in word tenses and choices.

So yeah only Rondo is left for Vol. 1 Progressive.

Don't worry, Argo is alive and well in 'The Day Before', which happened after they cleared 74th floor, but before Kirito & Asuna moved to the log house on 22nd floor. At that time, Laughing Coffin no longer exists too.

I won't say anything more because Tap said he'll translate it to English, so you can read it in full later.

I hope she will make another appearance in the series, she was a fun character. (I haven't read Alicization yet)

Wasn't the bath scene in Aria as well, which is considered as canon?

I heard a rumour when the anime started that it follows Progressive, can anyone confirm it?

Not exactly. The anime adapted selected current novel stories in chronological order, while Progressive is a re-write of the entire Aincrad arc, also in chronological order.

Either way- whether it's Vanilla or Progressive, he's just using what he had written before while doing some modifications along the way so it shouldn't be too time consuming.
Make me wonder if he actually have story board for EVERY floor

The rock is described to be "one step short of immortal object" that is to say, it probably has an HP bar that can only be decreased through weaponless hits
