ソードアート・オンライン1: アインクラッド (Sword Art Online #1)
I watched the anime first, and I was instantly hooked. Thanks for my bro for showing me this awesome light novel, or more likely, the anime. The anime was well-made, with just a few scenes being omitted. I hope there would be second season of the anime!
Anyway, the story is set in the future. On 2022, Japan had finally developed the first VRMMORPG (Virtual Reality Massive Multiplayer Online Role Playing Game), with the technology of Full Dive, which allowed the player to fully...more
What i like most about this story is it wasnt even written to be a published title. But it was written with 100% heart and imagination.
Beautiful and sad tale of a large group of people being stuck together in a virtual reality world where they have to fight for their lives. It shows compassion, fear and love.
The main characters are both very likable and all you can do is wish and hope that they escape the virtual living hell t...more

That was all this world was.
Above, there were 100 floors stacking straight upwards; its sheer size was unbelievable. It was impossible to even guess how much data it consisted of.
Inside, there were a couple of large cities along with countless small scale towns and villages, forests and plains, and even lakes. Only one stairway linked each floor to another, and the stairways existed in dungeons where large numbers of monsters roam
Imagine that there's a revolutionary new VR game platform -- not one of those lame things from the '90s where you strapped a low-res LCD over your eyes and used a primitive motion controller to play. No, this is the real thing, a helmet that taps directly into your brain, giving you a fully immersive experience in a virtual world that stimulates all your senses.
Now imagine that all the games for the platform suck -- it's a new sy...more
People trapped inside a game in a virtual reality, seemed very ".Hack//Sign"-ish to me at first. But I've liked it a lot more! It's a shame the plot could be so much deep and interesting than it actually is ("blame" the 120 pages limit of the japanese light novel competitions :P...), in the end what remains of the main plot is simply the...more
SAO #1 follows the story of Kirito inside a futuristic virtual game in which a person becomes the avatar in the game and is fully set inside the game, to the point in which a few software modifications can leave you trapped inside, without any way out, except the game's developer overwriting the code... *wink*
The story develops beautifully and takes y...more
Reading the novel was most definitely better than watching the anime. Actions and questions that were left unanswered and unexplained in the anime were, for the most part, explained and answered in this book. The thought...more
The basic premise is that Kirito is one of 10,000 people who are trapped in a Matrix-like MMORPG, while their bodies are motionless in the real world. They have to fight to the 100th floor of the castle to escape, and if they die in the game, they die in real life.
I was very reluctant, at first, to read this, because it seemed very similar to .Hack as well as the Matrix. However, it manages to escape both of these boundaries and stand as a great piece of manga/anime fict...more
Narasinya kurang oke. Kirito-kun rasanya seperti robot aja. Plotnya sendiri berjalan cepat bukan main. Sesuai dengan anime nya sih. Ditambah penjelasan
Not to mention, flaw besar yang ada di ending. Man, dua tahun koma gitu lho. Masa masih bisa jalan sih? Sebulan ga ngapa-ngapain aja, jalan udah susah. o__o
Satu hal. Kirito-kun ini adala...more
I don't believe this does any harm to the flow, but does perhaps have a little les...more
Reki takes the people that everyone who has ever played an mmorpg has at some point met in one form or another--who...more
The translation is nearly perfect and reads very fluidly!
The narration is also incredibly simple, making this book a fast easy read.
Kawahara does an excellent job getting us interested in this virtual world and those who inhabit it. It feels real, like the reader him or herself is within the pages of the novel, experiencing everything the pr...more
As far as the story goes, any RPG gamer or gamer in general who's ever wished they could be transported to and live in the world...more
This first volume covers the launch of the first Virtual Reality MMO where players use NervGear helmets to achieve "deep dive," a state that allows full immersion in the game. About two hours into the launch, the creator of Sword World Online announces that everyone is now trapped in the game with no way to logout. This taking of the players hostage is achieved via the specifics of the NervGear interface which basically cuts off al...more
This is one awesome DIVE in a MMORPG kind of story.
This is my first ever light novel. When I usually get interested in a light novel, I choose the manga counterpart instead or the tankobon as they call it. Thus, this is to some extent a fresh experience.
Basically, Sword Art Online Volume 1 comprises the start of the first ever VRMMORPG in Japan. A significant number of enthusiatic players and professional gamers have logged on inside the virtual game on its first day of launch. Sword Art Onlin...more
Ini light novel kedua yang pernah saya baca... dan itu pun berkat rekomendasi dari seorang teman♥
Saya agak takjub sama ide cerita novel ini.
Tanggal 6 November 2022, sebuah perusahaan game di Jepang resmi merilis VRMMORPG pertama bernama Sword Art Online (SAO).
*Buat yang ga tau VRMMORPG, bisa searching di Google.
atau... yah ringkasnya VRMMORPG itu virtual reality game.
Jadi selama main game Sword Art Online (SAO) kita bisa masuk langsung ke dalam dunia game, melalui sebuah helm bernam...more
So this is a story all about how Kirigaya Kazuto and about 9999 other people get stuck in an MMORPG. On launch day for Sword Art Online, Akihiko Kayaba, its creator and also the designer of the VR Headset NervGear used to play it, removes the logout button and announces that anyone who tries to remove the headset will get their brain fried by...more
[EDIT: Can't do it. The whole sudden romance is stupid. Are they seriously going to waste their lives away in a stimulated world?]
WHOA. I can't wrap my head around this concept. It's too amazing and epic.
Sword Art Online (SAO) really reminds me of Heir Apparent by Vivian Vande Velde. Heir Apparent is one of my favorite books, so that's a plus.
The art was so and so. Characters and animation were impressive. The backdrops were somewhat glazed over. They lacked detail.
Well, I'll start by telling you a little bit about the story:
The story begins in the year 2022 when a new sort of game is released. It's a VRMMORPG (Virtual Reality Massively Multiplayer Online Role-Playing Game) calle...more
This may be called a virtual reality game, but there's nothing virtual about it. That is what Kirito, one of ten thousand online gamers, realized soon after starting to play the new VRMMORPG Sword Art Online.
They are trapped in a game, unable to log out, where the death of your avatar meant the death of your real body. If either your life gauge reached zero or someone from the outside world tried to remove NerveGear, the headset allowing players to control their avatars, it would transmit microw...more
This was surprisingly entertaining! Written from 1st person view of main Hero - Kirito. Who completely doesn't follow the trope of light novels (by being NOT loser reject, and not collecting a harem)
