In the year 2022, gamers rejoice as Sword Art Online - a VRMMORPG (Virtual Reality Massively Multiplayer Online Role Playing Game) like no other - debuts, allowing players to take full advantage of the ultimate in gaming technology: NerveGear, a system that allows users to completely immerse themselves in a wholly realistic gaming experience. But when the game goes live, the elation of the players quickly turns to horror as they discover that, for all its amazing features, SAO is missing one of the most basic functions of any MMORPG - a log-out button. Now trapped in the virtual world of Aincrad, their bodies held captive by NerveGear in the real world, users are issued a chilling ultimatum: conquer all one hundred floors of Aincrad to regain your freedom. But in the warped world of SAO, "Game Over" means certain death - both virtual and real...

Rated 4 out of 5 by from An Interesting Read I would definitely recommend this book if you are an SAO fan already. I know the art isn't really what you're used to if you watched the anime but, it can give you more insight into the story. But, if you are someone who is just getting into SAO I would watch the anime first (You might be lost, or just quit reading it) I enjoyed reading this manga, I find it's always fun to see the difference in Anime VS Manga. This manga definitely gave me some chuckles, made my heart pound (From Kirisuna, LOVE THEM \(//∇//)\ ) and also gave me a deeper understanding of SAO. I Hope You Enjoy~~

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not the same as the anime I was disappointed in the manga. How the story is presented in the manga is way off the anime. Basically, the whole Ainrad arc is in this 1 volume. I did not like the art neither.... I recommend the novels instead and the animated series not the manga...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from An Interesting Tale I've been fascinated with this particular story ever since I first saw the the Anime for it. The manga version does not disappoint, and now I am able to enjoy it anytime I wish! If you looking for a great Fantasy story with an interesting plot this is perfect for you. Plus, to purchase all three books in one is a bonus!
