Overview

Kazuto Kirigaya (aka Kirito) has beaten Sword Art Online, a VRMMORPG that transformed into a literal game of death, and returned to the real world. Unfortunately, the same cannot be said for Asuna Yuuki (aka Asuna the Flash), the girl with whom Kirito fell in love in the virtual world of Aincrad but who has yet to awaken from her game-induced slumber. As his sister, Suguha, sadly looks on, Kazuto continues to visit Asuna in the hospital in the hope of finding answers. But when one day he meets a man claiming to be Asuna's fiancé, Kazuto fears that Asuna may be lost to him forever... That is until a fellow survivor of SAO taken form the latest VRMMORPG sensation, ALfheim Online - a screenshot that features someone being held captive who looks entirely too much like Asuna! His hope renewed, Kirito dives headlong into an all-new virtual adventure, but can true love conquer the game?!

Honestly wasn't expecting much but glad they switched out the artist since it looks close/similar to the anime. I enjoyed it so much although the book was so short and they left off at a great scene and it makes you want more.

This gamer based manga is well known among many for its fantastic story and art. When I first heard about it I thought it may be a knock off version of the twilight series that turned into a game and is still very popular years later. But though it starts out similar in the first series with the players being trapped in the virtual world and can die in the real world, that is the only similarity. It deals with many challenges and losses and a wonderous victory. But even when everyone starts to wake up, one single girl is trapped in another game. If you loved the last series you will enjoy this one just as much. I also recommend those that love this amazing story, watch the anime as well. I look forward to more stories by this author and if there isn't a game out already there should be because it seems super cool!

Okay let me start by saying that yes this is better rescue mission than captain Phillips event and possibly that whole Jessica lynch situation. The hero is just an ordinary kid who not only tries to save his wife from a possible rapist he's also unknowingly trying to save the world. It is freaking awesome. This could happen in our world that's the appealing part as well. Virtual gaming and stopping a corparte executive from controlling people's minds. Totally possible. Anyway, the magna is an excellent read. Sure you might have to endure the first few pages of reminders of the past events that occurred in the series but it only adds to the support and sympathy towards our best hero of all Kazuto aka Kirito. The colorful scenery (yeah it's still colorful even without any actual color) is just mind blowing and such a display that Haduki put the effort into it. The actual writing seems fantastic to fit the Japanese taste but puts in American flavor as well. The appeal of fairies and real humans was so worth connecting to others that I read it to my baby sister. She loves the fairies parts. Important note; for those that hate to read to your kids, please read magna to them it is better for you and your kids. Thank you. There is no nudity (okay yes there are shots of a young girl naked but no revelation of nipples are revealed (sucks.) ) there is really nothing wrong unless your comfort zone hasn't expended. There's little bad language. There is no incest in this series. It's just in how you interpret the world. They are in Japan not the dirty south side of America. But most of all great laughs with seemingly misunderstanding situations, excellent scenery drawings from Haduki, a rescue missions story that's so inspiring and relating to the average nerd or 99% percent vs. 1% percent person that needs lifting. It's book club must! You will not regret reading this magna whether you're a fan of the anime series or just an ordinary person looking for a quick read. There's more coming along the way. The wait is painful but it's so worth it. This magna means a lot to me and I hope it does for you. Kazuto kirito Krideygia our next role model of this generation? Yes. I highly endorse that idea.

If you know the series you know this is the first volume of the second arc of Sword Art Online(the first being Aincrad). This volume is very good, if you've seen the anime its basically word for word how the second half of the series begins. The art is equally as good as the first volumes. If your enjoying SAO so far then this is definitely worth the buy! I can't wait for the next volume.
