How did I forget about this adaptation! If it wasn't already #1 on my list for this year, this immediately puts it there :D

Kirito looks a lot lamer in that trailer than he does in the manga >.>

A series where the protagonist has an actual relationship? An awesome fantasy video game world where the problems of games actually matter for the protagonists?


Ah, HECK YEAH.

HOLY.....just...wow
Episode 1 was amazing :shock:

I wonder if any hackers will show up that break the rules of the game to a degree?

Yeah, this series is pretty rocking overall.

Spoiler:
No hackers in Aincrad. For one, nobody can exit to go program something.

Fan gasm'd.

Spoiler:
The first episode was simply superb; it was everything I expected, and more.

I truly have no complaints. Everything was of the highest quality; the OST was phenomenal, the animation was amazing, the landscapes are as stunning as I had imagined them to be while reading the light novels, and of course, Kirito is as awesome as I had made him out to be in my head.

That wouldn't necessarily stop them though.

But, since the L/N's are already out and stuff, I guess they didn't want to deal with that at all. Ah well.
Spoiler:
People use stuff besides swords...right? Seems like it'd be pretty boring if everyone used the same weapon.

Spoiler:
Weapons like axes, spears, etc. are present within Aincrad. Far as I remember, no magic. I think weapons *can* be thrown, but must people don't, usually. There's also a variety of weapons, so there's rapiers, broadswords, etc.

Mind you, this is something of a plot point within the series. Aincrad has no "magic" skills, no 100% Accurate attacks, and so on. It's suggested that this was very intentional on the part of the game's creator, sort of a way to balance out the fact that death is permanent. Skill is very useful in Aincrad.

Okay, I already figured the
Spoiler:
no magic part. I was just a bit worried since everyone shown so far have been sword users. And the girl seems to use a sword as well.
I prefer variety, so it would have been really bland if everyone used a sword. Plus, I can't see how a game like that would even attract that much attention. But, thankfully that's not the case. I look forward to the other party members then!

Well,

Spoiler:
Aincrad is the *first* total-immersion MMO. Lots and lots of interested gamers wanted in. A good number of people playing are pretty hardcore gamers; the rest are those who sorta got lucky and managed to nab a copy.

Asuna uses a rapier. She's more a 'piercing' type, while Kirito's a 'slashing' type. Mostly. There are differences, and other weapons will probably be seen later on. Remember, this is just the start of the game, and it wouldn't be weird for a basic sword to be the starting weapon.

And if they go on to Alfheim in the anime, expect to see the variety of attacks increase sharply. XD

Good thing I dropped reading Sword Arts Online for this, now I can watch the anime and enjoy it to the fullest.
Spoiler:
Though I'm disappointed Klein didn't stick around with Kirito, a partnership between soon-to-be best friends would have been interesting, now it's going to be a typical boy-girl pairing.
Believe in the Future, persist in the Present.
