A sequel to Sword Art Online has been announced following the ending of Sword Art Online: Extra Edition, a special OVA (Original Video Animation) episode that was aired just before the new years.

Titled Sword Art Online II, the anime will kick off with a brand new game in which Kirito joins called Gun Gale Online (GGO). Designed by an American company called Zakar, GGO's primary choice of weapons are of course Guns making it a bit different from SAO and ALfeim which traditionally used Swords and magic as a means of combat.

In addition to the announcement, the official website revealed some more information about the Second Series including a title to the new arc - "Phantom Bullet" as well as a promotional video (PV) which confirms the 2014 air date alongside a short teaser of the brand new heroine, Asada Shino's avatar.

Kirito really does look like a girl here. Usually the long black hair look works for most anime characters, but it didn't work for him. :S
I think @xxSoS mentioned awhile back to me that his avatar is actually supposed to be a girl and that it is actually quite rare.

But yeah, I agree that it doesn't work well for him :/

Heck, even Takanashi pulls it off better [MOG]



/inb4 pics of reverse traps
Yeah, it is. Some random dude actually tries to buy it off him when he first enters the game. [MOG]
That... Thats Kirito?

zurczner said: That... Thats Kirito?


BAHAHA!
I wonder if Sugita has enough plot left over to cover the new season.
What? Kirito looked way girlier in the light novel's pictures. I'm looking forward to the light saber, I mean photon sword action though.

Kenni said:Sugita


Got my hopes up. :*O


And Sugita lacks Sugus.
Thats really good news. I was so looking forward to a new season for sao. [Derp]

Aoi said: Got my hopes up.

I have him on my mind even when I don't realize it. [MOG]
not a single sword in that picture

****ing false advertising
Well, it still is Gun Gale Online :) haha. Pretty excited about this.
Kirito is suppose to be a girl I think
-_-
lets see his avater is a rare model where male and female looks a lot of like and can be sold for a high price in ggo he uses a small hand gun and a light blade i hope they make a season three from the alcization arc and he only gets 1 more girl in ggo oh yeah in alcization arc an ai falls for him too

Admin: Please put spoilers in spoiler tags!
If you think about it, everyone in the Alicization Arc other than Kirito is an AI

An AI falls for him? Who?. His childhood friend, twins from the farm, senpai, valet or the Cardinal? I don't think any of them fell for him, unless I'm missing someone

"model" is probably the wrong word to use here
I think the appearance of his character was randomly generated, but players can pay money to customise it. He just got a unique appearance for a male character since he looks like a chick and it just happens that other players with money wanted to buy his avatar

Go easy on the spoilers. Most people here haven't read the novels.

While I have you here...
Nothing to see here.

I SHOULD HAVE STOPPED READING. GOD. OH GOD. NO. NO
Thats not Kirito in the trailer, it's Sinon. She will be one of the new characters in this season. Of course Kirito will be in it but I don't know about his avatar though.
sao 2 is in a game called gun gals where people are forced 2 be girls avatars

i knew there was guna be a new season 4 months i saw there conversaition on youtube and they agreed 2 make a second season =) i was in first of my friends 2 no and i rubbed it in 4 days

what a gun [Derp]
I just hope they make it so it's really long this time I hate getting attached to characters and then having my dreams crushed when it's over.😭
Show looks amazing tho👌
any thoughts on Asuna?
Does Asuna get to play Gun Gale Online?
When is Sword Art Online 2 supposed to air ? Subbed or dubbed doesn't matter. I just need my Sao :'@

Alexis957 said: Does Asuna get to play Gun Gale Online?


That'd be a spoiler so hover your mouse at your own risk..

No. I'm not saying anymore than that and if you want to know more, then just read the light novels. They're pretty good

SageMode said: When is Sword Art Online 2 supposed to air ? Subbed or dubbed doesn't matter. I just need my Sao


Probably towards the end of this year and it's going to be subbed. I don't think the first season even has a dub yet so I don't see why this one will
Actually what happened here is when entering GGO something very rare happened to Kirito. What happened is he got a M900 meaning it made his avatar look like a female version of himself. Well hope you learned something. Ochita out. :)

really? really? It's Gun GALE Online. Also your spelling and grammar would make any English teacher cry. I also highly doubt you were the first they probably felt sorry for you. Ochita out.
You can leave the snarky attitude outside.

Thanks.

Kenni said: You can leave the snarky attitude outside.
Thanks.


ok ok
This is now officially the highest viewed article on achan [MOG].
The first season of sao has been budded and it aired on Cartoon Networks Adult Swim in America.
Hope you like this
>< Where Kirito [heartbreak]
SLIGHT SPOILER ALERT

ok for those of you that dont understand kirito resembles a girl in this one because avatars are randomised.
some guy even wants to buy i from him,and sinon (the girl in the trailer) even confuses him for a girl.
so yes kirito will be in there he will look like a girl.


SLIGHTY BIGGER SPOILER ALERT

although not very surprising even though its called GUN GALE ONLINE kirito will still be using a sword but its a light saber (they dont call it that but it was the impression i got when reading the light novel)
Truth be told:

Remember the time when Kirito when to register his own character at ALfheim Online? The game said that his appearance will be chosen at random so he wouldn't look like him IRL. So the game in GGO must have done the same thing except that the game must have caught a bug/error and must have switch his appearance into a girl... :)

false
just wait till anime comes out n learn the truth
some ppl have said it correctly in the above post but to be precise

the avatar's for GGO ( Gun Gale Online) the 3rd arc of SAOseries is chosen at random depending on the amt of Hrs spent playing on the Nervegear system.
since Kirito was trapped in SAO for over 2yrs his play hrs is amongst the top ranks and thus the game has given him a real rare Male Avatar. those as many can c it loost like a Girl
but IS A MALE Avatar.
cause of this avatar he gets ppl asking him to sell his acc, n also leads to the meeting of Shinon

i wander if this anime gonna go all the way till the end of Alicisation arc which is split into further multiple arcs. prob another further 2 seasons at least
As I said Actually what happened here is when entering GGO something very rare happened to Kirito. What happened is he got a M900 meaning it made his avatar look like a female version of himself. Well hope you learned something. SO try reading other comments. Ochita out.

OchitaT said:Well hope you learned something.


SoS has actually finished the entire SAO series, including the yet-to-be released light novel portions that were available as a web novel years ago before serialisation, so it's highly unlikely he'll learn something that he doesn't already know. :P
ok did not know that thnx for telling me
wait! what does "Al" mean? [WTF]

AdsSuck said: wait! what does "Al" mean?



Artificial intelligence.

Think Yui from season 1, Glados from Portal or Cortana from the Halo series [MOG]
lol kirito in the dark closet cross-dressing self is revealed... warning may fry his pride

random launguage sticky note 4 u i believe the 1 japenese word for love is pronounced ai as well

mod: double posts, use the edit button
This is great news! Only up to Part 2 in the UK, but fantastic to know there's more to come! Can't wait for Part 3 next month
I love SAO so much, but I might be a little depressed if they decide to make Kirito completely drop Asuna... I mean after all they've gone through together he goes into another game, meets another heroine, and then just completely forgets Asuna? If that happens I'll be very disappointed.
Why is it I feel like Sinon is kinda like Yoko from gurren Lagan

Nah, Kirito will never do that. Not even in a million years. ^_^
So, wait, when will the GGO(or SAO 2) actually be aired? I don't care if it's dubbed or subbed ^_^
Probably Fall but feels Winter-ish.
;O that is way too long! :O
It'll probably run for 26 episodes like the first season, so the wait may be worth it for some of you.
I wish the seasons had more episodes... I've watched an anime where the was like... 50 episodes, and it had more seasons to go along with it :(
by far amazing anime id appreciate it if when someone finds out if asuna will still be with him in this anime would let me know just message me on here please and thankyou
Same! I don't want Asuna to be dumped to the side and forgotten just because some other girl comes along! They, no, Kirito worked so hard to get Asuna back, just for nothing. That doesn't sound right. Plus, he didn't even care when the others girls were flirting/having minor crushes on him :@
So if anyone knows anything, tell me <3
exactly i think it get bad rep for it if they dropped her id be kinda mad lol
OMG Silica shipping Asuna x Kirito? Don't you want him for yourself? Or what I watched was all liees~ [Shifty]
She's setting aside her own feelings so she can cheer on her best friend. What a good girl. ~

zurczner said: OMG Silica shipping Asuna x Kirito? Don't you want him for yourself? Or what I watched was all liees~


Oh, well.. You know... I- you're right.... [Rage] Asuna sucks butt jk lol
Im pretty certain that he sticks with asuna.
Im sure i read it in an overview of the story however I'm not 100% certain maybe about 90%
Asuna is to awesome for him to ditch and many people will be annoyed about it considering how he spent a whole arc to get her back. So it be in their best interests to keep them together. Hope i helped

I think more people would actually be happy lol, considering how many people hated Asuna and the arc to get her back.
More like the ALO arc is what's been rustling people's feathers to this day. It completely ditched Asuna's concept from being a strong, independent fighter to a helpless damsel in distress.

Personally, I was just annoyed with Kirito. Half the time he was bent on saving Asuna, the other, he was fooling around.
You work hard, you play hard (evil)
Asuna in my opinion was a very good character... Until ALO when she became helpless.
Things with strong capable females are usually good stories in my opinion and she was capable. Then ALO happens.
I'd be dissapointed if they break up unless she is still hopeless.
I believe and hope thats how the majority feel about asuna

I agree! They portray Asuna as a strong and capable girl/player, but in ALO, they make her seem useless and helpless. I don't want someone like that dating Kirito, and if they keep going out when she has the 'hopeless' personality, I'll be mad. ^_^
Really can't wait for the new season I am so restless

Heck, even Takanashi pulls it off better

If Kirito is actually a girl, then it gonna be (sort of) like Kampfer ALL over again. -_-
But glad that season 2 is coming out
kirito use a gun? it looks we cannot se him use starburst stream or stuff like that anymore
and kirito used woman avatar is so....
I really hope kirito stays with asuna for the rest of the seasons :D
If someone had read the novel of ggo are kirito/kazuto going to die

Aoi said: Kirito really does look like a girl here. Usually the long black hair look works for most anime characters, but it didn't work for him.

ya i totally agree with Aoi

Kreatee said: I really hope kirito stays with asuna for the rest of the seasons


Ya i hope he does

i wonder if they are going to do a twist where kirito dumps Asuna and goes witha different girl [Facepalm] if he does thats just going to be horrible

when is it going to come out though
For all you who dont know, Kirito IS a girl in GUN GALE ONLINE, Cause its a rare glitch where his body type is taken as a girl and he gets put in the game as a girl avatar. So yeah, now you know.
And we reached 100,000! yey!
can't wait



also when does it air? [Derp]

It's been established several times before, but he isn't. He simply looks like one.

Japan. You can't compete with their awesomeness.

Also, as far as I know Phantom Arc begins airing on April 1st
i wish they cover some parts they skipped out on from the original sao arc esp the bit on Laughing Coffin
I dont know where to put this so ill just leave this here.

zurczner said: I dont know where to put this so ill just leave this here.


Strea, who ironically is voiced by...



Possile father-daughter incest? (evil)
Comes out in march they said
this is what i waiting for. :D

The announcement will be made probably on the 23rd. We should have a release date by that day
I think that's probably not Kirito. This one's main characters are another girl and kirito. But there's a lot of back story to her. So it might be her and not him with the blue hair. I think he does the all black thing again in this one.
i have watch a lot of anime after i watch one i write the name down so i am posting the names here cause i like sword art .hack // Legend of the Twilight Bracelet

ARRRRRRRRRRRRGH

i thought sao season 2 was coming out in APRIL!!!!!!!!!!!! :'( [heartbreak] [Rage]
I don't think the girl thing is a good idea :P
I wish it wasn't a girl outfit thing I mean seriously how do you come out with that
I can't wait for the next season to come out. I just finished watching the first season today
Oh wow, Kirito is going to be a girl? I'm going to laugh when he has to tell Asada. =D Anyway, can't wait for July! :D
Ok, This is awesome! The only thing I don't like is Kirito's design in comparison to the light novels' version. I think the LN version fit much better than how the anime is portraying him with just flat out making a girl. In the LN *spoiler alert*



--------
--------
Kirito is described as having feminine features, not being a girl.
--------
--------



Other than that, I think it's gonna be great!
once i heard that they were doing a second season i re watched the first one right away. also does kirito have A light saber strapped to his side in that first picture?
i want the heroin is asuna....!!!!
if not....i'am not going to watch GGO...
I want asuna with kirito forever... :'@

why they are to cruel...
what happened to their romance :'(
I hate this anime..!!!
WHY!! WHY!! WHY!!!!!!!
the best part is its not kirito in the pic its the new heroine and i thnk asuna is still there. theres just peobably like how alheim was with suguru. i hope. I <3 asuna [Derp]

Tkatana said: Asuna in my opinion was a very good character... Until ALO when she became helpless.
Things with strong capable females are usually good stories in my opinion and she was capable. Then ALO happens.
I'd be dissapointed if they break up unless she is still hopeless.
I believe and hope thats how the majority feel about asuna



asuna had no fighting power remember. she was in a cage and all the stats were reset. she was above all danger except for the rapist psychopath so obviously she wouldnt be able to fight. shed get her ass handed to her from like a leaf. -_-

Paladin001 said: the best part is its not kirito in the pic its the new heroine and i thnk asuna is still there. theres just peobably like how alheim was with suguru. i hope. I <3 asuna



ps i know the other girl is kirito i meant the second pic. btw this is gonna sound gay but kirito as a girl is ****ing hot. ;O

Paladin001 said: ps i know the other girl is kirito i meant the second pic. btw this is gonna sound gay but kirito as a girl is ****ing hot.


he not a girl tho that is a guy. That is a very rare player model which is super feminine. I can see why you think it is a girl tho but trust me he is playing as a guy player in the series.

Nope she fights in the next book, remember the stats still carry over and also they are still together throughout the series although there are moments in this season which will test kirito a bit.

They are together and you see them in the real life on a date and everything. This is the kind of payment he has to do to pay the government back for the asuna info as well. Asuna features thorough the show but she is not main heroin in the show. I do not think kirito shows feelings towards shino at all.
WAS up every one so you all love anime like i do huh *_* (evil)
I swear if kirito is not with asuna anymore I'm not watching it anymore 😑 -_-
I am so hyped up about this!! I don't agree 100% with the whole girl thong, - I am not sexist, in fact I love seeing girls on anime kick some ass, it is just I really love the variation between boys and girls in SAO, especially Kirito, he is pretty god damn awesome! I really hope they make this season so much longer! :D
If you read the light novels you would know that kirito selects a female in the new game gun gale by accident. Kirito and asuna are still very much in love and do kiss several times they act the same way but after this game the next game he is a male character again.
Asuna is still there but not in game (GGO). Only Kirito transferred his character from ALO to GGO due to request from Kikuoka-san from the ministry that manage of the MMO case. It's for investigation relating to a murder case which being speculate to relate back to MMO, in this case GGO.Some of SAO character still there but more like side characters lol ;p

P/S: Read all the novel..all of em great.. (love) but i luv most on SAO and Alicization..not much on GGO (don't like guns). Mother Rosario 50-50 XD

If you read the light novels you would know that kirito doesn't select a female character. The character was randomly selected, it is a rare male character model where the male and female versions are almost identical and in the sao universe most of the vrmmo games (including ggo) don't let you choose gender.
cant wait watch it hehe ^_^
Is That KIrito?
Ok pretty new hear but LOVE SAO so if someone could message me if asuna is till in it like they are stil together then I will be fine and also message or tell on here what chapter does this season start in the light novel

Dallas295 said: Ok pretty new hear but LOVE SAO so if someone could message me if asuna is till in it like they are stil together then I will be fine and also message or tell on here what chapter does this season start in the light novel


It starts in the 5th volume of the light novels. And as far as is known they are still together at this point. The question for which chapter is pointless this has 2 volumes for the arc. Its the Phantom Bullet Arc.

His GGO avatar is not female. It is a very rare male avatar that he got due to play hours.
edit- Stephen392 said this.

Note: Before posting please look through previous postings. Usually some people know what they are talking about. Tis will explain some of you losing kudos. I haven't even read the light novels and I know that Kirito has a really feminine avatar. It is definitely not a girl.
I watched this whole season I loved this show sooo much honestly I think they could have made about 100 maybe even more episodes other than that this was a phenomenal show I can't wait thank you guys for all of the reports and everything its well appreciated!!! Can't wait and when will it be dubbed again?!
What about asuna nothing about her yet
I've been waiting for this moment [Derp] [Derp] [Derp] [Derp]

mod: stop spamming
@Saoisgreat: I've heard that Asuna will become the main heroine in the 7th arc.. that is probably going to be in the 2nd season as the first one contained 4 arcs.
I don't know why y'all say kirito is a guy in ggo when all of the facts and images prove he accidentally chose a girls avatar. [Facepalm]
Damnit, is the gender thing still going. (evil)

We have several ppl who've read the novels - including a native Japanese guy.

Kirito's avatar is male but has a feminine appearance.
Kirito become girl oh noooooooooooooooooo [WTF] [WTF] [WTF] [WTF] [WTF]

Should put a big red disclaimer at the bottom of the article (evil)
Ive been waiting months for this yet im dissapointed itll be out in the summer
so i hate that i live in the us cause i can't see sword art online 2 on netflix :(
For those who forgot, in the last episode on the first season, Kirito said he was dumping all his stats and he was starting from scratch, so I don't think his stats will carry over to Gun Gale Online.
when is it airing in the US???


im a huge fan of SAO
so im really curious
should be in mid to late july
Does anyone know if asuna is in Sao 2
She is :D but what happenes to Yui?!?! :'@ [Rage]
I think the light novel version uses a lot of our ****ing imagination to be honest.
This looks great here.

This Season Is Going To Be Good

I Think [Shifty]
listen i know this i s off topic but is there a way to edit profile pic?
There's an edit button at the right of your name in your profile, then "edit avatar".
I would like to know what channel it would be on in the u.s. love sword art online the story line is alsome

Kirito is supposed to be a girl.. im not gonna say how because its already spoiled enough with the picture :/

and what is up with kirito's avatar? i just looked at images and i was like WWHHAATT?! Kirito better not cheat in this season or i will scream... very loud so japan can hear me... if thats possible.....

SAO said: why do i have a feeling that asuna is not going to be in this season very much.....



Cause she's not. We get a new girl in Kirito's ever-growing harem.
"Ever-growing harem"? -_- Eney way, what do the new VRHs look like? [Derp] (love)
Where can I get A VRH
? [Derp] [Derp] [Derp] [Derp] [Derp]
NO! NO! NO! THIS CAN'T HAPPEN!!! ASUNA HAS TO GO WITH KIRITO TO GGO!
Agreed.
....this is NOT fair.... X_X X_X

If you read the light novels you would know that kirito doesn't select a female character. The character was randomly selected, it is a rare male character model where the male and female versions are almost identical and in the sao universe most of the vrmmo games (including ggo) don't let you choose gender.


[Rage]
thank you X_X
oh thanks! i'm looking forward to it! :)

Man this is just gonna be crazy.... Sao season one was beauty incarnate. So im going to give them the benifit of the doubt and pray so hard that one of my favorite shows ever is going to stay awesome.

xxSoS posted about it in spoiler tags but I'll requote it here:


the avatar's for GGO ( Gun Gale Online) the 3rd arc of SAOseries is chosen at random depending on the amt of Hrs spent playing on the Nervegear system.
since Kirito was trapped in SAO for over 2yrs his play hrs is amongst the top ranks and thus the game has given him a real rare Male Avatar. those as many can c it loost like a Girl
but IS A MALE Avatar.
cause of this avatar he gets ppl asking him to sell his acc, n also leads to the meeting of Shinon
GUYS!!! kirito in GGO is still a male character. all his data from alfheim is transferred to ggo. Just his character is a special one, kinda like limited edition. [Facepalm]
;O so she is actually a he but got mixed up when he chose, right? ?
:(
aahhh... that makes since!
www.youtube.com/...
(this song is very catchy! only pony fans would understand)
I'M HOPING THAT THE PICTURE THAT STEIN2252 RE-POSTED DIDN'T HAPPEN!! I THOUGHT I TOLD YOU NO CHEATING KIRITO!!!! BLARGH!
Don,t forget that in the last episode in Sword Art Online they flew to the castle in ALF.Right? :(
Ok, i have read almost ALL the comments and ive noticed that almost no-one has said ANYTHING about Kirito and Asuna being together or split up, I havent read the novel, so could someone PLEASE help me find this out??

TBH: If Kirito isnt with Asuna in this one, im prob. not going to enjoy it, let alone watch it. [heartbreak]

They're still together, but their relationship isn't the main focal point of GGO. She's been made into a supporting character this time around, and the main heroine is a girl named Sinon who, unsurprisingly, develops an interest in Kirito when she meets him.
Why is it that Kirito always gets lucky [Rage] :'@
not fair. humph. i thought that the picture of kirito and that pink haired girl was a fake because that is NOT kirito's avatar in GGO, but in SAO! I mean think about it! it could be a fake... but i don't know. [Facepalm]
Thanks For the help Blak, im new to this website and i have no clue how to do the thing you did Lol :P i actually just made this account to know the answer to the question I had.

Again, I thank you. :)
does anyone know where you can buy the manga for SAO? i have looked almost everywhere... and i still can't find them! lemme know if you have an idea of where to get it!

e: I FOUND IT!!!!! NEVER MIND!
There's two currently floating around, you can find the original Light Novel which just got officially translated last month here:



www.bookdepository.com/...


The manga still follows the main story so if you don't like reading I suppose it's a good pick up:



www.bookdepository.com/...
-_-
thanks! that was a big help! :D
So here's a question I don't think I read on this thread. Are they going to keep yuri in the future seasons I hope they do thats one of the moments in season one that brought Kirito and Asuna even closer together. I swear if they mess the second season up I will never forgive them.

Plus a mini series on the ones who died in season one. Covering more of what they went through that you didn't get to see would be amazing. I just really want to see sachi again :'@
kirito conquered sinon in just two days :D well that's third place, liz and silica in just a day.
Ehhhhhhhhhhhhh [Facepalm]
Hey guys they confirmed Ark 4 here

UnderWorld (UW) (アンダーワールド Andāwārudo?)
The setting for the fourth arc of the story, the first Virtual World setting introduced to not be a game world. According to Kirito, it is graphically the most realistic of all Virtual Worlds to date. The flow of time in UnderWorld is variable and can be much faster relative to the real world's. Kikouka claimed that the current rate of its flow is 1000 times the speed of the real-world, and that the maximum rate was 1500 times the real-world's rate.

Aoi said: Kirito really does look like a girl here. Usually the long black hair look works for most anime characters, but it didn't work for him.



In the story, GGO apparently confuses his gender, making him a girl in the game.
...i jut wish kirito could look like his regular self.... they make everything too complicated [Facepalm]
What Happen To Kirito Nooooooooooo...Is it going to be the same
I thought this was Season 2 But sadly it's a sequel 😥😥😥😥
i seriously didn't even know the character in the picture displayed was kirito... i truly thought that was a girl
can any body tell me what's name of the song in the trailer 2 of SAO2 Plz.................................
All I wanna know is if asuna is in it): anyone wanna spoil for me?
the into it's titled "Ignite" by Eir Aoi
geez, all i want to know is: is asuna (such a pretty name, fitting for such a pretty girl) in it? and im pretty sure i know the answer (which is no) is it gunna be dubbed when it first releases? (i wont wait for dubs, but i like 'em) :O
i have heard that asuna is in season 2, but she doesn't go in GGO with kirito, therefore she isn't in phantom bullet as much as she was in the previous season.
Yes but isn't just being there count?Or no? :(
Asuna should come out she needs to be with kirito or else the show might be ruined
Asuna could be asada like in the first season kirito says that u shouldn't use your real name for your character in game
i dunno.... maybe
Even in the title it says Sword Art Online 2 not Gun Gale Online a big disappointment but it still sounds interesting enough for me to watch it in 27-28 days :D :D :D
Please do not multiple post. Make sure to use the EDIT button.
Well, Alfheim Online was still called Sword Art Online so.. I guess they'll stick to it until the end like novels. (Did they stick to it in the novels?)
Probably only keeping the name so people know what it is


e: its interesting how sword art online and alfheim online both use swords and magic and are both created by the Japanese while gun gale online is created by Americans(call of duty reference?)
btw why is kirito wearing a skirt if he is a guy thats look like a girl and what in the f@@king world makes a anime producer do this to a main character?
i agree... it confuses me so much why they would make the main character look like a girl... i'm also a little disappointed about it too X_X
Kirito's not wearing a skirt. That's an entirely different character [Shifty]
I think I got tired of hearing complaints about the way Kirito looks like two months ago.

Please get over it, people.
I do not think that the male character appearance should be intervened by some m9000 crap we have all seen kirito as a guy with no long hair except when he came out of his coma so why would the producers do this
(interestingly enough he does look like a girl from his face and hair so maybe it would have happened sooner or later any way)
(another possibility is that kirito did this or it happened to him as a disguise so death gun would not recognize him in the first place)?????

Blak said: Kirito's not wearing a skirt. That's an entirely different character


in fact that is most likely kirito because of his front appearance, skirt could be used as camo from enemy(death gun) as death gun would think he was a guy if he knew he had a pursuer in the first place so its a good way to hide from his distinguishable male appearance.

or it could be a different character because kirito has a lightsaber(photon sword,plasma saber,etc)on his waist so it is truly a possibility

-does this mean that there will be a 3rd season after GGO??!!

SAO said: -does this mean that there will be a 3rd season after GGO??!!

Not necessarily. Most anime, if not all, are adapted from manga and light novels that have way more material than one season of the anime can cover. Depending on the commercial success, the series may or may not get another run as an anime.

i may be wrong, but i realized a little while ago that this picture cannot be possible... a fan must have made it to fake out other people who also like the anime.. i don't know why though... although i came to conclusion that this picture can't be possible because first, that is not kirito's avatar in GGO. --just a thought
Can anyone tell me where I can get the light novel of Sao 2 plss tkx in advance :)
barnes and nobles might be a good place to check... they are just about to release fairy dance (english edition) so they might have GGO in a few more months...
Tkx :)
I have a real important question. If someone was to persay build a V.R.H (Virtual Reality Helmet) & make a gome like Sword art online, would that be concitered copyrighting? :S

There's actually an MMO game based off of Sword Art called Age of Aincrad:

age-of-aincrad.com/...

I believe they do want to incorporate the likes of the Oculus Rift and all but for your second question, I think they're changing up a lot of words so they don't get hit with a lawsuit
But is it copyrighting? =_=
im confused
is kirito girl in sao seasn 2 or something
:( :(and
i looking forward 2 see season 2 *_*
yes he is in season 2.Why the h*%l would he not be?! -_-
He is not a girl he just a rare player model since he played for two years Sao this model is obtained through game hours
Arn,t all charectors rare because they,re all uneak? :O
No it's a rare player model
How can it be rare? :S
Oh ya here's the second question.If Some one was to build the V.R.H BUT make a totaly diffrent game will that be a lawsuit, or no? :*(

Remember some thinges arn't in books & the shows like words, or scens.Right? :S
i is so excited 4 this ive already finished sao season 1 5 times! i liked how he was a solo player and kinda shadey (kinda like me on world of warcraft)but im kinda confused if thats actualy him in the trailer reply if u got the awenser
If u mean the blue haired chick, it's not him.K?
(i would like to point out that they are altaring it from the novel so kirito doesnt die)

SAO said: that wasn't in the anime! i don't understand!.... how is this possible??!!


its probaly just fanart or somthing!

Stein2252 said: Remember some thinges arn't in books & the shows like words, or scens.Right?


DOES THIS MAKE A DIFFERENCE?!...no. -_-
Can't wait for this season so close to getting it
Manga or Anime? :(
sorry it's slow. :*@

Gabriel318 said: (i would like to point out that they are altaring it from the novel so kirito doesnt die)



sssooooo does this mean kirito dies in the novel?? (which i have not heard about X_X) because if that happened, i would be very devastated.... also 4 MORE DAYS!! :D :D :D

e: SO apparently i have heard that there is going to be a season 3...

Sword Art Online: Mother's Rosario
is the name of the SAO that will be focused on Asuna.
That's not a season three, that's mostly likely part of the other half for season two.
hhmmm i see... -_-
Yea its what K4ZMA said... its part of the second season

Stein2252 said: IT'S REAL!?!?


That is Strea, a new character added in the game Sword Art Online: Infinity Moment and it's sequel Hollow Fragment.
Again, don't forget that as ALF ended the previes people who played SAO & Kirito's sister flew up to the castle.Check the novel or youtube if u don't belive us. -_-
I'm hoping 2 c kirito,
asuna and the others soon
:) :) :) :) :) :)
daisuki is releasing it publicly on their website on the 7th.. there is also a trailer that describes GGO more briefly then the trailers on this site :)
If they left asuna behind ,, ill probably just wont watche it ,,, i was watching this hole anime for romance and the betwenne these 2 ,,, and maybe the black haired girl asuna and she decided not to take her real name for once in a game ,,, idk,,, thing is ,,, if they drop the love betwenne these 2 ,, theve destroy there master peace ,, I think there shouldt be a second season thoug ,, the fiste one was a master peace ,, the end kind a suck thoug ,,, no final kiss ,, but not at all see asuna at the end ,, itkilled me ! :( SPOILER
u did see Asuna, she was a water fariy.Also for all of you on a scale of 0.1-10.1 how good do you think it will be if asuna isn,t there?If she is post that instead.)
the official trailer did show asuna with kirito in the beginning before he goes off to GGO though, but honestly, i seriously 100% think asuna should have went with kirito to GGO =_=
YES!! =D :D :*@(happy tears)
2 more days !!!!! I cant wait =D ^_^ ^_^
Are u the offical time keeper?& YEAH! :D =D (*) (love)
the waiting is unbearableeeee!!!!
=_= :*@
omehgoodness!!!!!! need.... to.... watch... more.... [Derp]

SAO said: omehgoodness!!!!!! need.... to.... watch... more....


What do you have it on DVD or youtube?TELL US!! =)
anyone else wondering what happen to asuna -_-
Don't Asuna & Kirito get marryed for real?Or am I wrong? :S
Asuna is in SAO 2, but not in GGO.. Asuna is shown in the real world and goes on a date with Kirito. You can kinda say Asuna's A support character i guess..Also, Kirito and Asuna never breakup. Nothing occurs with their relationship during the season. [Derp]
ONE MORE DAY!! =D :D [WTF] (love)CAN'T WAIT!
10 more hours [MOG]
Anyone else catch the premiere that was leaked onto Nico Nico earlier today? Soooo goooood to see Kirito and Asuna together on screen again *_* *_* *_*
I can't wait!
BIG F*&%$@G PROBLEM!!IT'S NOT ON TOONAMIE! =_= [Rage] :*@ :*@ :*@ X_X I'm going to die.

another very good website to watch GGO on (you don't have to downoad): www.daisuki.net/...
kirito is actually still a male in ggo, his avatar is of a similar model as the female version.. yet when he meets shino he asumes she is being nice to him because she thinks he is a girl, so in order for him to recieve her help he pretends to be a girl by talking in a higher pitched voice
