Good question. I'm also curious if there are actually untranslated raws since I remember reading in another forum that there was going to be a manga adaptation of the Fairy Dance arc.

I would only look for the manga if it fills in the holes that the anime would probably bring out. XD

It would still be best to read the light novels as opposed to the manga if you really are looking to fill all the plot holes. Though I do agree that manga is more mainstream and has more following as opposed to LNs. That and peoples apparent aversion to books w/out visuals in general.

the chinese scans have it up to c8.

Kirito is explaining the Black Cat to Asuna.

Not a fan of the artwork.

I read that there was a sex scene in the manga.

Will this be in the anime aswell?

They did one in Mirai Nikki.

Not the manga but the LN. As for the other question I highly doubt it but you never know...

@Xellos-_^ Agreed. Not a fan of the shoujo-esque art style. I heard the Fairy Dance arc will have a different artist.

It won't so don't bother


Manga is consider so-so at best. It never bother explain anything. Novel is way better.
But it's because I discover that manga that I discover SAO so I have to thank it.




There is no chance in hell 16.5 would make it into anime especially when they crunch rush story and chop things left and right.

We will see Asuna&Kirito undressing, maybe a kiss (or their lips nearing each other) and then some mysterious darkness will invade SAO

I'm more worried we won't see Asuna undress at all...

To be honest, the SAO manga's art style isn't so much shoujo-esque, but rather just plain terrible.

True enough. Although I've already caught up, I'm only looking for manga to see the art.

Still as people said it's pretty so-so. So eh. :x

As for 16.5, I'm just wallowing in the awesome art of the colored translated doujins floating around the Internet. Although I'd buy an OVA if it ever comes out hahaha. [/shot]

IMO they will do the scene but some things may change.
We will see them in bed with each other naked. After all Kirito proposed to Asuna in bed.

I don't know about naked, but player house generally only have one bed so... yeah...

Omitting 16.5, I always thought that player cannot go completely nude. Even while swapping gear their avatar will still have their underwear while the armour visual is changing.

Apparently there is a "remove underwear" button if Aria is cannon and all.

That's crazy....
Not a hope, unless they distill things to such an extent that it no longer resembles SAO as a series. Let's just forget that GGO exists for now. ;p

As do I. Tossing his harem into the mix would be horrible. I still have faith in Kawahara not to allow the studio to do that..

Look at the bright side of things guys. None of them are official yet so let's just hope the studio folks get some sense knocked down on their noggins for once. SAO being turned into a generic rom-com is one of the worst that can happen to the series. Lets just hope A-1 understands that.

What irks me though is the insinuation that the Black Cats story will be relegated to a one episode affair. It should at least be a two part thing to be effective. In order for it to achieve the intended effect we need to warm up to the other members first (especially Sachi). One episode just doesn't do it justice. Since it's still unofficial I will now proceed to pray to the anime gods for A-1 to see the light... Haaaaum....
A little. And yes, agreed.

Hm, while I agree that it being a two part thing may make it much more effective, who's to say that it can't be just as effective if it were only covered by 1 episode? We think they're rushing through/distilling material, but we can't say for sure until we've seen the actual episodes. For all we know, it could still be a very good adaptation, even if most of the side stories are only 1 episode long. Or so I hope. ;p

Yeah, it is. But then again, so is 16.5.

Wait, if the next episode is based on Aria...then isn't Aria canon already?

Hey we have the right to dream right? And you gotta admit if this ever gets implemented IRL it'll help solve unwanted pregnancies, overpopulation and will be the most sought out family planning method in the entire history of mankind LOL

But yeah I guess they'll go for generic censorship rules as a work around for that scene. But some recent series do have unabashed uncensored boob fests and innuendo *cough DxD *cough so you never know...
