And sweet, I've heard of her. Does she join the harem or is she more like Sinon where there's interest, but it doesn't go full blown? Also does Alicization mainly follow Kirito, Alice, and the new guy?

And glad to hear that Asuna is still involved I was told in the beginning that

so as long as I get a good Kirito x Asuna moment there I'll be satisfied for the rest of the season


It's more complicated than that.... Yeah it follows Kirito, Eugeo and Alice. Actually Eugeo and Alice are the OTP here and Kirito is on the outside looking in for once. Although, some things happen later in the series that changes the situation, to say the least... Overall romance is not really the focus of this story however.

As for KiritoxAsuna... Did he? I honestly can't even remember since so many things happen after the beginning scenes...


Oh damn, Eugeo and Alice have a thing? Well that's sweet! It's about time Kirito is the third wheel. Do you like Eugeo x Alice?

And ya, apparently he did.

If I were you I'd just read the novels. It will be years before the anime makes any progress, if it's adapted at all. Meanwhile there's been 16 novels so far (Mother's Rosario is Volume 8 for reference...) so 2 more season's worth of storyline in this arc so far and I think there will be around 20 volumes total when it's finished. I can PM you the link to the LN PDF's if you want.

Ya sure, PM them to me.

Also, it's pretty much for certain that it's going to be animated. Let's be real here, SAO is sooooo popular they'd be crazy not to. I could see it coming out next year even.

Don't know about next year, but looking at average disc sales, SAO II averaged double digits which usually bodes well for more seasons.

http://www.someanithing.com/series-data-quick-view

Sword Art Online II 2014 Summer 20,039 A1 Pictures novel (ranked 48th all time)

It was a significant drop from SAO I though:

Sword Art Online 2012 Summer 36,132 A1 Pictures novel (ranked 19th all time)

Still, it is quite high relative to most anime and usually 7k or so average is considered a success.

I don't know it was less than 2 years from when we got SAO II, I wouldn't be surprised if it came out Fall 2016.

But even it was a 10,000 unit drop the fact of the matter is that 20,000 units is fucking good no matter how you look at it! We are definitely getting a third season, that's not even a question.

PM sent.

These days, Anime is basically used as an advertisement for the novel series they are based on. Thats why Spice and Wolf will never get a 3rd season and why No Game No Life will never get a sequel for example. They served their purpose and the novels are flying off the shelves. Same story with Sword Art. Not saying it won't get one, I just won't be surprised if it doesn't.

Thanks for the link

This is semi-true a lot of series adapt it fully, it's not necessarily just to get LN/manga sales up otherwise they would have stopped way long ago. Some series I gurantee you will be adapted to the end such as AoT and SAO, they're money makers and have a big following, it's going to be happen. Just like how a Magi season 3 will happen. It's just a matter of time, mark my words. It is to get advertisement for the source material but also for the anime's gain as well.

And you never know, Spice and NGNL could be continued for sure. At least for NGNL, it needs for the source material to get further. Don't kno what's the deal with Spice though.
