    So as to not cluster the anime thread with spoilers every so often I decided to make a Light Novel thread so people can just let loose without consequences.:amuse

    I'm on the... 7th? or was it 8th?... anyway it's the one after Mother's Rosario... and I'm at the "Area PK Mistery"...

    HOLY CRAP THIS IS SO NOT LIKE THE ANIME...

    I'm glad they changed all that STUFF THAT WOULD GIVE AWAY TOO MUCH INFORMATION... like omitting the ramen thing...

    also... this part is ridiculous...

    How long is the ALO arc? It seems like a damsel in distress arc which sounds stupid.

    Its two volumes in volumes 3 and 4. If you don't like Kirito giving his all to get Asuna back then your wasting your time. Though as for me, it was a great ride.

    Didn't say that, I said: "it sounds stupid".

    I said that because with these kind of things I expect stupid actions from the MC that could have prevent further dragging out the actual saving.

    If it's good action and Kirito doesn't do stupid shit I'm in. But since I've already read the SAO arc I might as well continue, whether it sucks or not.

    i haven't read it for fear of spoiling the anime, but now that the 1st story is done, how does the written stack up with the anime?

    Well Light Novels are always better than anime adaptations since your reading from the point of view of a character and your reading what Kirito is thinking and feeling. Thus it will have a bigger impact on the reader. The anime of course can't portray that very well. In saying that, I enjoyed the anime version as well. Just not as much as the LN.

    I finished Vol. 10 last night. I really like the Alicization arc. Much better than novels 5, 6, 7, and 8.

    I knew that SAO was absurdly popular but I never paid attention to it in relation to its peers. Only Kagerou Daze and Mahouka compare. Its tripling and quadrupling other popular series' numbers. :geg

    just blame it on someone else hacking your account and posting for you, haha

    i lost interest at vol 9 and took a long break. Just marathoned vol9-15 and it was fresh and felt like a new story. Feels like picking up SAO for the first time, and it was able to keep my interest. Think it was at the end of 12 when things start to happen.
