To Reki Kawahara:

- Why did you write the infamous chapter 16.5 with the glopping noise?

- How do you feel about the people who criticize your works (in this case, the Sword Art Online and Alfheim Online arcs)? Are they right or wrong?

- Do you feel what you've written is good, or do you wish to change anything?

To Toshihiro Kawamoto:

(I am aware that this may not be something he can answer, but let's try anyway)

- What are your general thoughts on Eureka Seven AO?

- Do you have any insight into the production of Eureka Seven AO? Was it chaotic? Rumours are it was and that writers came and left the project.

- Has studio BONES lived up to the visions you had before founding it? Where do you think the studio can go next?

- What do you think about pirating? If people want to support you, but cannot (either due to lack of license or license limited to USA), what should they do?

- As a tie-in to the previous question, how can the anime industry evolve and become truly global? As in, making it available for anyone and so on.

This series/animation was perhaps one of the best I've seen yet. It was very well built up and displayed unusual climaxes that touched me in ways I'm not used to. This was definitely a profound piece of work. As an example, I was so touched by the series, I came but hairline from hating it when I had thought the ending of SOL was when Kirito woke up in the hospital. My GF could vouch for me when I say I had to VENT.

To the point... The second part of the anime was great except that it seemed to have ended so ambiguously early. I do not joke when I say, "I suspect budget cuts in production." One of my biggest favored climaxes in the second half of this series was when Kirito duped everyone into thinking he was some kind of super ambassador refereeing the alliance negotiations. Unfortunately, this is when the series began to appear rushed.

So much was missed after Kirito prevented the war. Virtually no history of Kirito's own nation was provided. The entire governing system in the game world seemed to take a dramatic back seat, virtually appearing to undergo a complete purge from the story. While a great deal of attention was being focused on Kirito/Asuna (which was good), we never traced back on these vital points. This was one of Gundam Seed's greatest strengths; even if the side characters had nothing to do with the main plot, there was still a dramatic connection and fusing point. What was happening with Kirito's sister? What happened to everyone else right when Kirito succeeded in saving Asuna? Did anyone outside of Kirito's sister learn what he was doing, even after he did it? To little information was provided about the original programmer of the SOL (sorry, kind of foggy with the names) and the potential buyers who fueled economic interests in the exploitation of the virtual system. Additionally, while there was a great deal of personal interaction outside of the gaming world, we got to know almost nothing about the characters's life short of Kirito, his sister, and Asuna (the bartender was touched a bit but not by much). This was something I liked about .Hack//sign; I got a wealth of information about "every" character's life on the outside of the game.

Personally, I would like to see a continuation in this series. I believe there are plenty of touch tones to start from, and an overwhelming feed of questions and concerns that could be addressed. The only problem is, it seems as if this animation has shot Kirito out of the main character role. Restoring him back into that role seems problematic.

Over all, I really liked this series. While it is true that every animation will have its short comings, few really have the capacity to touch me like this one did. I would also like to see how the author could recover from shooting Kirito from the main character role (or how he would interject him back in it). It will truly be unfortunately to see this animation not continue.

1) Any plans on making english versions of your light novels?

2) When you made SAO and Accel, was there a MMORPG that you've got inspiration from?

3) If more volumes or seasons are made, I would like to see stronger male characters as well. So many of them are ALOT weaker than Kirito.

4)Did you ever think or imagine your works will get international recognition?

I can answer that. He didn't. It was a doujin he posted on his website.
Although the question I want to ask to him is: Why did he post it on his website in the first place?

I won't ask if there is a season two. I will ask although towards the end of the first world, Asuna was kidnapped when she died. So she didn't die in the game as she was suppose to(as other quote unquote died). Is it a possibility that the people who died in the game are somehow dormant and now a permanent member of the game instead of dead? Since the quote unquote creator of the game put himself in the game before he passed to help the protagonist.

Since Asuna didn't die, is it also possible that distraught parents didn't kill their child but just put them in suspended animation until a quote unquote cure could be found? Thus bringing back their bodies. Also the daughter the protagonists found, would she forever be a computer simulation? Or will she be able to leave temporary the computer world and live in the real world in the body of a person whose mind snapped and couldn't take the death or the pain of the game when it was online? In other words forcing the protagonist to quickly insert the little girl before... well you get the idea.

Excuse the grammar errors please

Wasn't it fanfiction created by himself, though?

No, it was some other guy. All I know for sure is that he had no involvement in the making of it. He just found it somewhere and posted it on his website.

1 - SAO already got translated to English up to newest volumes. The translation is accurate.
3- Plot armor make him unbeatable.
In a side story of arc 1, there's one girls that got disabled, can live a little more months actually as strong as Kirito, beat Asuna and Kirito in a duel and success to make Asuna join her raid group. (Although I think Kirito not really go 100% in a duel with a girl)

In 3rd arc there's one more.

Oh and for the question what inspired you to write SAO
He already said it in the after word chapters from the Light Novel.
