In some ways, the creator of the SAO world also slightly reminded me of Deus Ex from Mirai Nikki but with different objectives of course. So in other words, he might be to setting up the game to create a champion (reference to God parallel to Mirai Nikki) which is beyond just "escaping" the world despite his original announcement to the players. In other words, to escape the SAO world and became a champion or possible new ruler? Hmm.

This is just a theory though imo so I'm not sure if it'll come true or not.



Spoilers for those who haven't read the light novels!



Also, I highly suggest anyone who hasn't read the SAO light novels read them on baka-tsuki.org. Even with just fan translation, it's an awesome story, and any good fan would enjoy it!

Actually, the real world bodily functions problem is easily solved. Tubes for providing nutrients to the body without requiring actually eating already exist, and the other...issue can easily be solved in a similar manner. As long as all the players' bodies are brought to a properly equipped hospital, there's no problem on the body front. (Though, of course, too long spent without moving like that will cause their bodies' strength to degrade and eventually wither away, but that will take a while.) The light novel actually explained this all quite well.

And as for using EM to fry the NerveGear, I imagine that Kayaba would have reinforced the thing with those kinds of things in mind, genius that he is. Besides, with the very real possibility of the player dying if they try to meddle with it, I doubt people would take the risk of doing anything to the NerveGear unless they were 100% certain it would work. (Lives are at stake here, after all.)


The only problem is, how would they transport them to the hospital to provide that support without disconnecting them from the internet? Unless all internet connection is provided by a citywide/coutrywide wifi connection. Even with that equipment, I would think that equipment interference could be an issue, with all the devices they would require to transport them and keep them alive. All things considered, only 2000 deaths in the first month is a very surprisingly low figure. Good thing that the distribution was so throttled. Really, only 10,000 pre-order copies of the highly acclaimed first fully virtual mmo. The developers would all be killed by rampaging fans long before the game was released.

The NerveGear has a 2 hour period where it can be disconnected from power and they will be transported to a hospital without killing the player. I'm guessing that the things have a WiF system as well I mean this is 10 years in the future but it isn't really explained I believe.

Episode 1.

It was cute. I liked it very much.
How the story goes from here is what's important.
The premise was good. It certainly has potential.

I hope this doesn't become this season's Accel World.

Once again, Kawahara-sensei doesn't fail us in presenting an awesome set-up. Despite Accel World being animated first, I think Sword Art Online is the stronger work. I'm sorry to be comparing but it's the easiest method to get my thoughts across. First and foremost, I am very pleased that our main character, Kirito isn't as wussy and annoying as Haruyuki. It's obvious they both are adept in video games but the former recognizes this strength and uses it to his advantage. Second, the overall reason why they must level-up brings a different kind of depth. SAO is more of fighting to stay alive and escape while AW is more on becoming the strongest fighter. The fact that death is a looming theme for SAO brings a darker side, which is usually more entertaining to watch. Third, I like how they managed to integrate games, where other gamers formed bonds. This will naturally bring out more psychological and trust conflict. I'm quite excited for the next episodes already. This has been one of the stronger pilot episodes for this season, hopefully it won't disappoint.

Well thought out post there :)

Tbh, this is the one of only two series that impressed me so far although I have hope for this weekend's Rinne no Lagrange II.

I'm willing to pass up all of the little leaps in logic since most of it will probably be explained later and also the fact that I may finally enjoy the whole stuck in a game concept for once.

I hope

I would upload an image but CR won't let me... you find her at 18:15. Will add image when CR lets me :)


Found her in a very brief scene. I think this is her:



Yeah that was the scene I have been trying to upload an image of for ages but CR still won't let me :s

Just watched episode 1 and I must say this show seems heavily based off .hack but it was still pretty good.

Sword Art Online (ソードアート・オンライン, Sōdoāto Onrain) is a light novel series written by Reki Kawahara and illustrated by abec.
The series has currently 9 volumes.
It was written as a Web novel with the penname "Kunori Fumio" since 2002, and was published in 2009 at the same time as Accel World, in the label Dengeki Bunko.

http://www.baka-tsuki.org/project/index.php?title=Sword_Art_Online



They probably came out around the same time.

The LN was published in 2009, but the original web novel started much earlier. Not sure if it started as early as 2002 though so you might want to check up on some sources.

Also just noticed chrome_mist your signature is a little offensive isn't it? Not that I care all that much.
