Sword Art Online

Sword Art Online

The year is 2022, and gamers have lined up on launch day for Sword Art Online, a hotly-anticipated MMORPG that lets players connect to an immersive virtual reality world with special helmets called Nerve Gear. Kirito is one such gamer who's eager to jump back into action, having spent a great deal of time as a beta tester, and quickly becomes friends with newbie warrior Klein. But soon, Sword Art Online's 10,000 players discover that not only are they unable to log out, the only way they can return to their physical bodies is by beating the 100-level tower's final boss - that is, if their HP doesn't drop to zero first, for death in the game means death in the real world. Now, with no one else to turn to, Kirito and the other participants must survive the game as best they can – some forming guilds, others ruthlessly leaving their peers behind, and many tragically falling by the wayside or to the merciless monsters populating the lands...

Reasons you might like Sword Art Online...

Both feature futuristic technology that allows people to be in the game themselves. However, the characters themselves are normal school kids.

The story lines in both are quite different, as are the characters, but if you enjoy the themes either have, then you will probably like the other.

Both animes are really good and in virtual worlds with a harem vibe into it buet awesome action moments...

Years after the fantasy MMORPG known as 'The World' suffered massive system failure, it has returned. Upgraded and re-written, the current incarnation of 'The World' gives players the freedom to find high adventure, embark on quests for treasure, and battle each other in arenas and tournaments. Player-Killers have become commonplace, however, and prey upon those weaker than they. Haseo, a careless player, was saved from such a fate by members of the Twilight Brigade - a guild with a legendary quest. Joining with the Twilight Brigade, they take on "The World" with all of its wonders and dangers. Will they find what they seek, and will Haseo be able to save those that mean the most to him from the unexplainable effects of 'The World'?

The World is an ordinary online game – or at least, that's what Haseo thought before his friend Shino was player killed and in the real world, Shino's body subsequently fell into a coma. While Haseo searches for the mysterious player killer called Tri-Edge in order to bring Shino back, he discovers that a dangerous virus called AIDA is lurking inside The World. Only Epitaph Users such as Haseo - players with special powers – can defeat it. With the help of Project G.U. members Pi and Kuhn, Haseo will fight to save both The World and Shino...

Bear and Mimiru are on the trail of a time-restricted event that holds a great deal of promise for rare items and treasure. A high-level dungeon, notorious for creating heroes and stories, has been reopened after two years in decommission. The catch? The creatures that roam the halls are accompanied by healing monsters, which makes fighting futile unless you can kill in one strike. But who in The World has the strength to do such a thing? Mimiru knows of someone who was fabled to do just that...

Full Dive: This Ultimate Next-Gen Full Dive RPG Is Even Shittier than Real Life!

Hiroshi Yuki has just picked up Kiwame Quest, the realest VRMMO ever made. But this RPG is TOO lifelike; he can smell, taste, feel—and when he’s hurt in it, his physical body is hurt too. Even worse, his abilities in this adventure suck as much as they do in daily life. This was supposed to be immersion, not reality. Consumed with winning, he swears he’ll conquer this game—even if it kills him!

And to top it off, a war is coming!
