So another anime uses the premise of an MMO and it's a clone.
I bet you think Hakuoki is a clone of Gintama for using the Shinsengumi as characters, or that Monster Rancher is a clone of Pokemon.
You forget, Griever is special.

Read the LN. It's short and you only need to read the first four, second is four short stories that tie into the first, also need to read Aria in the Starless Night and the Material Editions. They add more to the backstory as well as fleshing out Kirito a bit. Though they will probably end up skipping the two Fairy Dance books and changing the ending instead of finishing the story in full.
