Here's a little breakdown of the volumes so that you don't have to wonder much about what's going on.

Volume 1: Sword Art Online, the game where it all began through the Nerve Gear/NERDLES (I use the former since NERDLES sound so...nerdy?). This is where the main story actually takes place, describing the first few days and the last few days in the game.

Volume 2: Side Stories of Sword Art Online. Basically a collection of stories that happened in Sword Art Online.

Volume 3, 4: ALFhiem Online. This game is basically a safer version after the previous fiasco that was SAO. It's practically a different game, which is why you see Kirito with wings, but the idea behind it is the same. To avoid confusion, the land is called New Aincrad.

Volume 5, 6: Gun Gale Online. Think of it as Virtual world Counter Strike. It's a First Person Shooter, unlike the previous two that were MMORPGs.

Volume 7: Side story where the setting is moved back to ALO. Doesn't involve Kirito as the point of focus.

Volume 8: Side stories. First one's about SAO, second one's about ALO.

Volume 9: Alicization. Will take a long time to explain, but it's a whole different game though. Expected to last for 10 volumes.

ALO is actually a modified version of SAO. The setting is called New Aincrad, as compared to the old version of SAO that had Aincrad (old) as the setting. New features includes flight in non-dungeon areas and magic. This isn't like SAO where they were all locked. They were still able to get out, but the plot, well, I'll leave it to you.

As for bet, what I meant is having to translate Volumes 7 and 8 before the anime airs.

I wonder what happened to the leader of "Laughing Coffin" since he hasn't made appearance yet. Will he appear in Alicization? The author kind of left a cliffhanger in vol. 6.

ლ(ಠ益ಠ)ლ

And seriously, Kirito lost against Zekken? Even though he only used one sword and didn't go all out. I thought he was unrivaled.

The leader of "Laughing Coffin" has made an appearance in Volume 8 first side story "A Murder Case in the Area" which is one of SAO (game) side stories.

Plotwise i'm up to date been following this since late last year when trans was still at v4. Was really glad to see you hop on though. I only lack info about like the most detailed of stuff untranslated. Like say his sword in v7 or v9 stuff. I roughly get the gist of alicization though.

Just picked off where I left on 8, and it helped me remind myself why I like this novel while reading this volume. The adventure to get that "Excalibre?" are gotten bigger than anyone ever thought and it surely an exciting one. And the 3rd side story is shorter than I would like it to be, need it more

But still, I can't get myself to like Alicization, maybe I'll grow to more like it after I read it...

^ That'd be nice.
That Copel guy, he must be the few first names to be written on the stone

I always feel it's too bad for the author to jump to level 74 as soon as volume 1, and only make SAO arc only two volumes, and making it into few SS I always prefer SAO arc than Alicization, we want to see more SAO don't we? heck I wish it would be 10 volumes length and aliciz would only 2 volumes instead.
Maybe the author fear the reader would be bored at the first few volumes and make it shorter? *sigh*

I still can't imagine why aliciz would be that long...

I wouldn't've minded starting on the 74th if the story hadn't ended on the 75th. Kirito totally derailed the plot when it was getting interesting.

i would've preferred it if we actually followed the storyline from their login up to the clearing. i didn't really like the following arcs (ALO, GGO, etc) that much compared to the original SAO. also, Heathcliff would've made more of an impact that way.

read the freshly translated part of The First Day...

Spoiler:


man, is that a running sentence or what.

^ HA! thanks for having the same thoughts with me

Yeah, even if not make the storyline from 1 to 75 like you say, I'll be happy to see at least 10 little arcs from that 1-75. Instead we have aliciz The title is SAO right? not aliciz
I don't really like other arcs because the players don't really die anymore. It's just another mmorpg, who cares about some common mmorpg?

I really hope the anime would do only SAO, put some fillers(ofc about SAO) and end it still about SAO

lol @ that sentence

Which part of Alicization had you read? Only the first chapter? Do you have any idea what Alicization is talking about? Or you just can't understand the story? You can't just banish Alicization just because the atmosphere of the story is different from the first three arcs and the possiblity that you can't grasp the meaning behind the story.

For me who have read most of Alicization (spoilers from other people), I can say

ALICIZATION IS PURE EPIC!!!!!!!!!!!!

Even the SAO arc looks average in front of Alicization.

I may give a brief summary on the first 6 chapters of Alicization (Volume 9 & 10) in the near future in this thread (when I am free, a bit busy in real life).

Btw, according to Kawahara-sensei in his twitter, Volume 10 will be released in July, the same month as the start of the anime.
