Yea, a little early but felt like sharing. Accel World will be airing this season and Sword Art next season. They're not related but both are by the same person and announced at the same time.

They take place in the same setting I think, there's a good deal of speculation/evidence that points the main character of SAO creating the virtual world in Accel World.

As long as they animate the first two arcs since those basically complete the story and don't pull the bullshit of twelve episodes a season it should be fine.

If Yuki Kajiura is doing the music then count me in.

Incidentally, she did the music for .hack//sign and Liminality, as well as the opening of roots and ending theme of Twilight Bracelet (technically See-Saw, but that's her and Chiaki Ishikawa)

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.

Hint: The webnovel for SAO came out before .hack.

^I hope they do leave the ending hanging for a S2 in ALO.

I could sworn I comment before, but, I think one aspect of the show bothers me a bit.
Even though it wouldn't be a concern in other shows like say Claymore, I always thought it was weird they only used swords looking back toward the manga in an MMO themed plot.

It's all explained if people actually read the source material.

First episode...

THERE ARE NO GIRLS.

jk, there were a few. But not much. It's like all of the girls in the crowd turned into guys lololol. Capturing reality I see.

If it was Asuna doing it it was Linear. Still waiting on UTW since I refuse to watch Commie after them already ****ing up something this season.

Edit: After finally seeing it (took you long enough UTW) I can tell you it was Horizontal. Considering Linear is a rapier skill.
