hmm, I remember reading somewhere on here that 16.5 wasn't written by Kawahara... :/

either way though, I wouldn't worry too much about the dialogue in a story like that

There was a discussion about that chapter both here and on BT, and I'm pretty sure it was written by him, it's those other fanfics that were written by the fans. I don't think I'm wrong, but if anyone else knows, then feel free to correct me.

Heh, agreed. ;p

Please, look at a post I made 2 days ago:

"As a huge political junkie, this is what cemented my love for SAO. Plus of course the relationships, but mostly the various subtle and controversial themes the series tackles.

SAO Arc: Life and Death, the Boundaries of Real Life and Virtual Life
ALO Arc: Greed, Love and Dedication. Plus Familial relationships.
GGO Arc: Power and isolation.
Mother's Rosario Arc: Applications of technology in the Medical Field.
Alicization Arc: Artificial Intelligence, The Military and the meaning of the Human Soul itself."

I can sit through dry political debates all day long and still find it exciting.

not one of those topic deals with virtual sex and porn on the internet which probably makes up 90% of VR game servers.

Asuna. Forget about everyone else, because honestly, they're not important when it comes to romance. P:

Watashi kininarimasu~! Loljk

I thought so too...

Oh well, I was just wondering about chapter 5 (I think..?) When Kirito meets Asuna for the second time, considering the fact that they met inside a dungeon when the game started according to the side story on volume 2.

I thought it was lame how they met, Asuna just calling up his Kirito's name and Kirito just grabbing her hand and saying "cook acquired," like come on it's been 2 years since they last met, so I thought it was kind of strange.

the first time time they re-meet was the murder case. By chapter 5 they are already well acquainted with each other.

In theory, by that time in the storyline they should be very familiar with one another from their multiple meetings scattered across the various SS's, as well as defeating most of the latter boss together on the front lines in various raid groups.

Aria / Rondo / Sound of Water as well as the various SAO ME (Material Edition's) #1-9 which are just shorter SS's

He was obviously somewhat close to her by that point. How would he even know she was a cook if he wasn't close to her?

Oh I know, I was just commenting on how I can slog through it even though it's dry. Or to show that there are people out there who really like exposition. :>

As for Virtual Sex, well it would be OH SO REDUNDANT to mention ETHIC CODE options, but we all know what the Cardinal System allows in any MMORPG post-ALO no matter how moral-guardians want to deny it. Hahahahahhahahaha

A far more important question would be: Would you really want to?

Remember, there's no Kayaba around to make sure everyone has the same gender they have IRL, and we all know the ratio of male v female in online games....

Didn't the follow-up VRMMORPGs enforce that you can not change gender?

Well, since the publishing of the third volume it's been stated that because of psycological reasons, all players avatars are of the same gender; after some tests, people who created an avatar of the opposite gender would develop some sort of detachment of themselves, which of course, is not good. Therefore, it's automatically enforced by the VRMMOs companies and by the game system that the avatars are of the same gender...

Spoiler for unless:

Hmm, I'd have to dig back in and check, was it mentioned in the start of vol.3?

Somewhere there. 16.5 also mentions that avatars are anatomically correct because after a sustained period of playing, male players begin to feel anxiety over missing equipment. ;p

It also mentions that it seems the SAO team were fully aware of the rule of first adopters, and thus decided since avatars were anatomicaly correct, they may as well program in VR sex.

I think it's quite clear that Kawahara must have read Ghost in the Shell when younger. ;p
