But it has a sillier feeling than SAO or AW (or even .Hack//). Nevertheless, I'll be enjoying this series!

So Akatsuki wanted to change her appearance because she didnt want to be stuck in a guys body? I understand her, i also usually play as male character.

So knowing mmorpg's there should be a lot of little girls running around with a deep voice. Yes thats right, a lot of female characters are actually male. And for some reason i dont think they want to do back to a guys body...

You know, I just imagined a little girl with Norio Wakamoto's voice. Now I seriously want such character in the series

Watched the first episode: really liked it I love how it mentions 200,000 people are trapped worldwide too and how, this time, you've got veterans (level 90 people) in the game....

I can't help but think, though, that this is kind of like taking Lelouch and putting him in an MMORPG in terms of story. I hope them saying Shiroe is a legendary guild's strategist will mean we'll see some cool strategizing from his part

... Apparently there's a need for a LN thread to exist... I'm pretty sure there'd be some curious souls.

Watched the first episode, and pretty liked it. I had two copies of one of its manga adaptations which featured Marielle's guild, and my understanding of the series is pretty much limited to it...

It's not a guild. They're just a band of players who don't align themselves to a guild.

Basically a very big party.

I don't get something. Shiro's level 90 and i know his class isn't combat oriented, but those weasels were only level 28. You'd think that one of his attacks would be enough to KO them.

ah but what kind of attack it is? A attack-attack(fireball) or a disabling-attack(confusion/paralysis)?

While not as gripping as the first episode of SAO, this certainly was a good enough introduction to get me interested. Likable characters, comedy, and a clear show of potential for a big world type of show. And it must be said, the cutest loli ninja since Goemon.

Only now am I finding out who wrote the original story, so it will probably turn out different than I initially expected, but I still enjoyed the author's other work, so it's no big deal, in fact, I can already see a couple improvements in this story over the other one already, so it's all well.

P.S: AKATSUKI!! So darn cute!!! And seriously, how can you go wrong with a wizard and a knight being bros?

That Electrical Fuzz at the beginning of the episode.

By the way, to those who read the novel, can you tell us how solid the battle system is? How in-depth does the novel explain the game and attacks? Also, is there a main antagonist or what?

Not sure what came first or what, but the obvious cashing in/ripping off of SAO popularity wave is so thick.

However, I do like that it seems the population is much bigger, and the main cast is bigger so its more party based than just solo adventures of Kirito.

It's not like SAO has exclusivity over the "stuck in an mmo" story, it's been done before (see hack//sign). SAO had an amazing beginning, only to begin a slow descent into garbage once the lovey dovey crap started and the second part of the story was just stupid. Hopefully this anime doesn't disappoint like SAO did.

Kind of feels like a lighter version of SAO. That kind of comparison just isn't going to be avoided easily. An interesting part of this though is people pretty much being stuck in whatever character they made. If they don't really line up with the characters they designed there will be some discomfort or clumsiness. Also a somewhat unsettling situation of some people getting stuck as the opposite gender unless they can get their hands on a rare potion . Lucky for Akatsuki she had an old acquaintance to rely on there .

All in all it could be a pretty decent series. Don't feel like it will be hugely special, but the main trio are solid and certainly seems like comedy will mix itself in regardless of the situation these characters are in.

Not really a complaint but from an MMO player's point of view I kind of find it silly how a bunch of lvl90 characters are having trouble against mobs that are more than 60 levels lower than them. Unaccustomed to new controls? lol if I logged out my capped char on a nub spot with aggro monsters and login back and for some reason my hotkey setup were all reset I can prolly setup my hotkeys while tanking nub mobs.

I mean sure this isn't the MMO I'm playing but c'mon I've played a lot of different MMOs and I cannot name any MMO where people will have problems against mobs that are waaaaaay low level. Kinda makes me think the author has never played an MMO before.

edit: remember the episode where Kirito tanked a bunch of nub PKers?

Maybe their stats were altered by this supposed expansion? Such that even for level cap characters like them the low level monsters have stats that can't just be shrugged off? Otherwise I agree it seems silly that they were getting knocked around even if you include not being used to the control system. With that kind of level discrepancy they should have been able to fall asleep while those things were attacking and take little to no damage..

haha well as I've mentioned(edited :P) on my previous post... maybe the author has never played an MMO before.

Depends on the mmo. On the mmo I play mob attacks have a minimum value, so for instance regardless if your defense is 100 or 500, mob X will always hit at least 75. If your defense is lower than 100, then it goes up exponentially. A single mob could never take you down but a horde will.
