wow the battle is sooooo much longer than the anime version and Kirito & Asuna's first meeting is different. but nonetheless, it feels good to know more details about the story

I had heard reference to this Light Novel (LN) series before, but never heard for or against it. If you are a fan of LNs I would recommend this series right away! The series gives me the same feeling as Spice and Wolf, but has more action and brings in an MMO/.hack feel to it as well; both good things as far as I am concerened! I plan to continue on with the rest of the LN series, but I wanted to read this one first so I could get the true beginning. :)

If you've seen the tv series, this short story is episode two, when they're going to go after the first boss on the first floor. But don't think you know everything if you've seen the show, there's enough differences and extra things that make it definitely worth reading.

Un poco larga para ser un sidestory; me fascinó la forma en que se centra en los sentimientos de Kirito.
KiriAsu 4 ever!

Loved the manga, and it's anime.

I actually read the manga, and watched it's anime. Both are awesome.
