Seeing as how Sword Art Online seems to be following the events from Vol. 1 and 2 of the light novel in chronological order will it make it to the end of the first light novel by the end of this first and hopefully not final season?

On a side note, for those who have not followed the light novels, vol. 2 is a compilation of side stories where as vol. one jumps a head two years after the first chapter if I remember correctly

And finally please if you must talk about events that have yet to happen in the anime make sure you post a warning as well as use the spoiler option. I think Sword Art Online is to wonderful to ruin for those who have not yet had the pleasure of reading or watching the anime.

25 episodes is not enough for this anime?
They probably will make more seasons considering how much its sales have
boosted since the anime began airing.

I hope it follows the novels, but so many animes deviate from what they intend to do to create more revenue. If they stick to the story line then I doubt it will be concluded in a single season. Minimum would take 2 seasons which I'm sure is what they are planning for. Would be nice to see a new epic anime emerge but I just don't see it happening with SOA. Love the show though and glad its doing well.

It is more popular than you think.
Makes you wonder how this got the general public's attention while Accel World was paid dust.



I mean... What kind of smash?

Right now the anime is episode 5 and they are half way up the tower. It's different than /.hack cuz they focus on a lot of topics that gamers face online. Even if it ends, they can revive it like yugi oh! After the world tournament was over they held another tournament. The manga and the anime can both keep going as ling as writers keep the subject material fresh.

They are doing it chronologically to introduce all of the side characters, which really were additional material beyond the main story contained in Volume 1. That heavily implies that they already plan for the story to cover Volume 3+4 and they wanted to cover their introductions early.

A Murder Case in the Area, Warmth of the Heart, Sound of Water, Sound of Hammer, and hopefully some anime original material dealing with Laughing Coffin will take us up to ~13. Then they can devote the second half to all of Volume 1 + Morning Dew Girl.

Season 2 would be Volumes 3-6, Season 3 could be 7+9+10.

I think it'll end at the part where the first LN ends.


EDIT: It's going to be a 12-episode anime.

I have a feeling the last few episodes will be horribly rushed.

I was thinking about this a bit earlier, and it seemed pretty hard to finish with vol. 1 on the 25th episode... much more likely to get through Vol 4 with the pace that they're going. This is what I was thinking in terms of episodes (though I'm unsure about the next few., and if those go faster they can add more details towards the end):

I like .hack, but SOA is way better in my opinion. Not an easy thing for me to say. But, it's true. I don't really care about ToD, I thought it was boring personally. Nine episodes in, did little to convince me otherwise.

SOA has kept my interest since the first episode. Even if the odd episode feels rushed. It doesn't really surprise me it's doing well. The show had a strong start. And the light novels look to be popular.

nope. if you read the lns youll see its way diffrent than any other game based anime. i see in the future itll be like familiar of zero and shakugan no shana...it has enough material and sales to have atleast 3 seasons following the diffrent arcs. i just wish index would get more seasons. 22 volumes pluss the nt series, and all the side stuff. sigh....if i ran a company id animate all my faves so fans can see ther fave characters in action.
