It isn't based off the manga, but a Light Novel series at 10 books. The very first MMO only takes place in the first two books, and they way they are going with it it will be done by episode 12 or 13. The anime is going to be 25 episodes long, so the next book or two which is the next VRMMO they get sucked into (ALO) will be the second half. (This one will have magic!)
There isn't going to be any twist because they are following the books, and for people who have read the books they already know everything that is going to happen however many MMO's they have gotten into (I think 3 or 4 by now?). You can read the books online actually.
Oh that's what you meant. Well, for me there'll be a twist. So :P
though the only voice for an ALO member on the SAO casting list is Lyfa, so she will likely just appear in the last episode giving us something to look forward to in the series' continuation(or hopeful continuation).The show will be 25 episodes long, so they have plenty of time to release the more important side stories, like Yui's(<3 Yui) and the main plot. The show overall could stop rushing, which is why I'm hoping next weeks episode will be a two part release, as it was close to half of the eighth novel Early and Late(which had a side story from SAO and a side story from ALO(After GGO in this case).
Just finished watching Clannad: After Story last night.....OMG!! Best anime I have EVVERRRR watched and I have watched a lot of anime!! I don't think any other show has messed with my emotions so much <3 I'm going to watch it again lol. *I did watch Clannad before AS*
Started watching Mirai Nikki. Already know I'm going to like it because I already hate the MC.
I have to admit though, the MC's beta-ness makes me laugh.
Holy shit what am I watching. I'm scared. D: That room... what the hell.
I feel like I shouldn't have the lights off in my room before I keep watching this.
Anyways, I've probably seen far worse endings.
Dangit, leaving in 7 hours for California, and I haven't even started packing because of anime and internet. Two in the morning. D:
Started Code Geass recently, and Rolo just killed Shirley. That made me sad.
