The Light Novel that spawned the popular anime. 10,000 people get trapped inside a new virtual reality game by the insane creator of said game.

The players must clear a one hundred level tower to get free.


My Thoughts:

First off, I think SAO in nothing but a ripoff off the vastly superior Hack//Slash. So I’m not exactly unbiased.

Second, even for a Light Novel, this was singularly blase.

I didn’t like it but I suspect hardcore fans of the anime would like it.
