I've never read Sword Art Online's manga or novels, I've only seen the anime, so maybe that's why I'm missing something here. But since I began watching the show I keep wondering how all the real bodies of the trapped players in the game are surviving without any nutrition or, especially, water.

Actually all players were simply brought to the hospital and received treatment when the incident went public.

This is correct. In the book, this was kinda explained by Kayaba, on the first day (omitted from Anime), but the Anime does bring it up in episode 13.

Started watching the show since Toonami is airing it. Watched the 2nd arc and the first and last episode of the 1st arc. I really like Asuna and Sugu, but I have a question

I'm afraid you won't see much of Asuna or Sugu in the new season.Gun Gale focuses heavily on the new character Sinon and her background.But if you like strong female characters with believable backstory you will love Sinon .If the new season will run for 2 cours they probably will adapt the Mother's Rosario Arc which focuses entirely on Asuna.

Thanks!
I'd rather focus on the ones we have. Seems like male characters don't get any development in this show other than Kirito. I heard there is another major guy, but not until much later.

I didn't know that arc was about Asuna, so looking forward to that. Sad though that it seems we won't see much Sugu, but who knows how the directors...uh, direct this new season.

the another major guy would most probably join after the timeline of season 2 and might have more air time than all female characters combined...

ooh that excites me. Too bad it'd only be in season 3, which if they do it might not be until 2016.

But would he really have that much screen time? I heard there is another character in that arc, Alicia or something.
I'm not quite sure how the arcs break down. I tried reading the wiki, but it seemed like SAO was split into many stories but Alfheim only had one central story, the Fairy Dance.

Yeah Alicization is most likely reserved for a 3rd season.It's still ongoing and currently spans 5 novels.The new male character and Kirito are the main focus since the story is told from their respective views.Alice comes late into play.Asuna and the rest of the cast are even less present in this arc than Phantom Bullet.As for Alfheim:After the death game,the stuff with Sugo and the Phantom Bullet Arc Alfheim became the main game for Kirito and co.It's still a setting for some of the sidestorys.

..the thing is, there are multiple story arc, include Fairy Dance, and all of these story arcs come together to form this series with the name of SAO.

And in the underworld/alicization arc, Alice would probably be introduced together with Eugeo, but if plots' pace and length of each season would be similar to season 1, then the time Alice give out her real significance would probably be season 4.
