Synopsis

The story begins with Yggdrasil, a popular online game which is quietly shut down one day. However, the protagonist Momonga decides to not log out. Momonga is then transformed into the image of a skeleton as "the most powerful wizard." The world continues to change, with non-player characters (NPCs) begining to feel emotion. Having no parents, friends, or place in society, this ordinary young man Momonga then strives to take over the new world the game has become.
(ANN)

It's based on this novel:

There is also a drama CD cast out. (I wonder if they will use the same cast for the adaptation?)

Well, this is going to be interesting. I wonder if it's going to have more deaths than SAO.

Cautiously optimistic about this one. I like SAO, I like Berserk. Sounds faintly like both. The artwork makes it looks like a dark fantasy, which we could all use more of.

This looks like it should be fun. Sounds like someone intentionally got stuck in a game and decided to be the bad guy (he becomes Skeletor!). Which is different from the other 'stuck in a game' shows.

Let's see if the use of Norse mythology (it's going to happen, the game is called Yggdrasil) is less comical than SAO. Or Tales of Symphonia, for that matter.

read end of volume two. MC is really different from the cliche anime/manga MC complaining about going back to their world, we always see the good guys(heroes) going and defeat the overlord or demon-lord, but we never saw it from the bad guys point of view. this LN tells the tell of such things. all i can say is badass, extreme badass, and godly badass!
