So why was book two agony to read?
The main problem was how the book was written. It’s a collection of four short stories that take place during the two years the players are trapped in the game. I knew that going in, I was actu ...more
The Black Swordsman
This story focused on Silica and her quest to revive her fallen familiar, Pina. I loved Silica and it was really easy to sympathize with someone who felt alienated and alone without her familiar. While Silica was surro ...more
The first story stars Silica a young girl who Kirito helps because of her resemblance to Kirito ' s sister . Next up is Lisbeth a young blacksmith who goes with Kirito on a quest to find a rare material. My favorite story is the third. It tells the story of Yui a young girl w ...more
I didnt read the last story... No.
I love the world of Aincrad, but I wish he would write how Kirito and Asuna would try and find eachother in real life. Please.
The first story, The Black Swordsman (Aincrad 35th floor, February 2024), features the beast tamer Scilica, and how Kirito helped her restore life to her dragon pet, as well as hunting down some player-killers.
The second story, Warmth of the Heart (Aincrad 48th floor, June 20 ...more

Truly a Work of *sword* Art
#############This review contains spoilers!!! You have been warned!!!#############
Sword Art Online (SAO) is one of those tales that appeals to a certain audience. I am one of the people who enjoy this series very much. This “sequel” was more of a detailed version of SAO Volume I. It could be described as a collection of short stories; four to be specific. One must actually experience the story to truly understand the book, bu...more
This is the second book the the series. Also, adapted into the first season of the anime. All this is really is is a compilation of side stories. It just adds more to Kirito's adventure in Aincrad. It shows his encounters and experiences with other people and groups. It shows what happened to make him dislike guilds so much, it shows his character grow from the beginning of the death game to the end. It also introduces and gives a back-story to the cha ...more
The first light novel jumps from Day 1 to Day 700+. This is an understandable tactic, because it skips out on the hours of grinding and confusion that would have been present, and gets to the mythos of the world a lot quicker, but is also heartbreaking because it ignore ...more
Unfortunately, these types of volumes do have a drawback. They aren't cohesive. ...more
A year after the SAO started (Death Game name given to it by the players)
Kirito (the hero) is currently in a guild raid. These types of events happen when players got togther to clear a boss floor. Throught SAO there are 100 Floors each containing a boss. The whole game takes place on a floating castle called Aincrid. Later in the book Kirito and Asuna end up falling in love b ...more
(Yes, yes I know that one technically isn't in love with him, but they regularly share a bed. Close enough.)
I have never liked Silica's episode. And I didn't like her chapter. She doesn't do much for herself, acts like a mascot, and seems to be some creepy paragon of cuteness in the world of SAO. And it's both annoying and somewhat creepy. I did care about her quest t ...more
LISBETH the blacksmith is outraged. Her best sword has just been destroyed. She decides to create a new, even better sword, but the ingredients are in the possession of a large and angry ice dragon. How is she going to fix do this?
ASUNA the clearer is taking a well-deserved vac ...more
I really enjoy this book because the stories seem so nice and cute once you finish it. The girls weren't useless or annoying, they were actually likable, strong, brave, and bada#s too. Kirito's role in this book is to teach the female characters how to live in the present like they are alive inside the trapped world of SAO. Kirito is so strong and nice, he's an image of a perfect protagonist for an action and ...more
Here we have the stories of the normal folks, and a glimpse of what it would be like being stuck inside an incarnate Hell. While there are still heroes, specifically one the author cannot ...more
Different viewpoints add to interest of stories, even if every girl Kirito crosses paths with seems to develop a crush on him.
Story 1 - Black Swordsman - 5 stars
Story 2 - Warmth of the heart - 5 stars
Story 3 - The girl in the morning dew - 4 Stars
I actually finished Vol 8 of SAO last night. Wow, not even a week had passed and I'm about to finish the entire volumes of SAO.
REVIEW OCT. 23, 2012
SAO Vol 2 is comprise of four short stories that occured parallel to the events in SAO Vol 1. It follows the adventure of Kirito in Aincrad and reprises the role of other characters ...more
The book have 4 side stories that are not included in the first book. They are really in the same style as the first book and even one of the stories is a very important event mentioned in the main plot. The stories are very interesting, but they lack "something". Probably I feel it this way because they are thought as side stories, but they could have been more powerful if written along with the main plot. They are like "patches", It's like the author always had those even ...more
