I also have a question... would they ever elaborate on the Laughing Coffin crusade (as in, not simply talking about it)? I've been curious as to how the events exactly played out and what lead up to it.

Sinon is the best character, and therefore deserves better than Kirito.

Jokes aside, I'm not even sure she really likes him that way. She made that one comment in Calibur, but it was also clearly teasing him since she could barely hold back her laughter afterward. And she said he reminded her of her mother. I think they're just close friends. It wouldn't have been impossible for them to fall in love with each other if Asuna had never existed in the first place, but now that they've met and interacted as they have, their relationship wouldn't change even if Asuna disappeared. If that makes sense to anyone else.

So that mean most of it already decided huh, just developing the story.
Apparently Kirito's black sword in Aincrad got some attention in this novel, I'd lol if the name is Elucidator (or he chose and named it)

It is still unnamed as of vol.10.

Naw, it was just briefly mentioned how the two sword are similar in that they're both black, and that when he first touched this new sword he felt a connection to it, just like he did with the Elucidator, the Anneal Blade, the Dark Repulsor, Excalibur etc etc.

I find that the author of this story looooves to time skip. I've mentioned this many times but, we never did learn fully about life in Aincard and even now it's pretty damn hard to relate the word 'Death Game' to that particular arc. Someone probably complained a lot about that and he was obedient for the next few volumes, and then his hands got itchy again and made time skip official in Alicization arc. >_>

Kirito was trapped in Fluctlight for 8 years. He understands that time in real life has only passed 18 hours but honestly... it didn't feel like he miss Asuna and the others much. It wasn't quite mentioned in Volume 10. What WAS mentioned however, was that he was starting to get very used to the new world with his new friends and is no longer sure whether he wants to go back... while actually promising halfheartedly that he would not leave even after they've accomplished their objective...

First Day/Aria is Floor 1
Rondo is floor 2
Concerto is Floor 3-9

I know. You also understand that it's not nearly close to being enough, right?

One would certainly hope so. Unless he plans to write about him choosing this world over the other and gets over Asuna. Which would make me furious and be quite heart breaking for Asuna.

Would anyone actually enjoy an ending like that?

Wait, what? 8 Years? There's some really bad inconsistency here. When he was in the real world after SOA he was a complete mess after being separated from Asuna for a few months. Alright there was the "small" problem that she didn't wake up with him and he didn't know what happened to her but honestly this is just messed up.

He was always like:"she's the most important for me, bla bla" and now he didn't see her for 8 years and its suddenly:"yeah, no big deal. Everythings fine.". Additionally they decided to go to USA together in Vol. 9 Interlude and stuff.

If this is true I'll be totally disappointed by the author. It just doesn't make any sense apart from Kirito going totally mental which imo would be fine and explain a lot of things. I mean, Asura will find out how much time has passed for him and of course she will also say:"Yeah, don't sweat it. Everything's fine.".

Yeah this is a LN and stuf so I don't expect it to be rational, logical or whatever for most of the time but thats just a little too convenient. So far the romance actually was pretty nice, especially since they weren't all lovey dovey all the time, but this?

Eh, there's no way to avoid timeskip for Kirito. Remember, time for him is moving along thousands of times faster than everyone else in the real world. You'd literally have to dedicate a couple volumes to Kirito with every chapter of material for Asuna without time skips. As it is, most of volume 10 is already dedicated to Kirito's side of things, most of which are materials that wasn't in the web novel - which had a straight 2 year timeskip for Kirito from the events in vol.9.

Because it's not true. The total time period for Kirito covered in vol.10 is 2 years, which saw him and Eugeo make their from that tiny village to being members in a larger town's guard contingent, and from there entering into the imperial academy, 750km away from the village they first started at, and ends with the end of their first year there.

And no, he's not exactly fine with being separated from the rest of friends and Asuna for so long, but there is nothing for him to RESOLVE POWER through this time either.

He didn't >_>

It was 2 years in Underworld's accelerated time at the end of of vol.10, while it's only been a week or so in the real world.

Not even a week lol, a week would mean 18 years have gone by in Underworld (That's what's the 1st chapter said anyway, 980 hours = 18 years in Underworld = roughly a week in real life)

Naw, it was at least a week from the Asuna/Shino/Suguha discussion (at which point Kirito has long since been hauled off to Ocean Turtle) 'til Asuna and Rinko arrived at OT, since Asuna told Kikouka that they altered the picture of Rinko's assistant in CalTech's database a week ago.

Remember they can adjust the accelration ratio at will, they probably turned it way down as to not burn through Kirito's fluctlight capacity while giving his brain enough time to regenerate.

Well, I was responding to Craxuan's post where he said it was 8 years and the other stuff. I'm only able to read the LN in english so I'm stuck at Vol. 9. But if Vol. 10 covers two years its possible that it will be longer.

I don't really understand what you want to tell me with that RESOLVE POWER part of your post.

It was simply easier to just address both posts at the same time. As far as your post is concerned, I was just saying that Kirito was in fact not fine having been separated from Asuna and the rest, and despite him doing everything he can, there is only so much he can do this time around. Underworld is not a VRMMO, Kirito doesn't have any special OP powers (relatively speaking anyway...for now), there is no super-villains (or is there?) to defeat that would release him from UW, he is literally powerless as far as removing himself from UW is concerned. Not that it would do him any good if he could, as he'd just come back to a damaged brain and go back into a coma anyway.

Alright, thanks for clearing that up. I just got a little mad at the prospect of the stuff that Craxuan posted. Imagine that would be actually true, a lot of people wouldn't like it.
