Description:
Project Alicization, a top-secret government project run by Rath, a company affiliated with the Japan Self Defense Force (JSDF), was started to create the first highly adaptive, «Bottom-up AI». By using a 4th generation FullDive machine, called the Soul Translator (STL), Rath succeeded in copying the Fluctlights (souls) of twelve newborn babies, creating a «Soul Archetype», a non-developed Artificial Fluctlight that could be copied to create new Artificial Fluctlights, which would then need to be nurtured to mature into an individual. For this reason, a virtual world, codenamed «Underworld», was created using the free kernel version of the Cardinal System, The Seed, and then transferred into the STL mainframe via the Mnemonic Visuals feature of the STL.

Underworld is set in a past era, when science and philosophy were just being discovered, but instead of recreating a past era, limited terrain and certain customs were introduced so that the inhabitants of the world would form their own society.

Just remember folks, without SAO we'd have never gotten Something Witty's SAO abridged.

I wonder if this manga will ever finish, I mean this arc in the LN is very long. Though I'm still hoping since this been great so far and this one's more faithful than what's adapted in the anime.

@goodie-bag I know and Alicization arc is better than the first season. So much so that I feel like people are just troll-rating 1s for the meme. Granted, I'm anime-only so idk how the manga adapts the story.

Probably because it's by Reki, who's been known to be a bad writer. At least for SAO stuff.

This one's definitely creepy aff

Shutting down the Soul Translator Machine is like committing mass genocide... Please dont.

They also spice up the drama on this, kids would have a hard time catching up.

That plot summary is written by a chuuni

The first SAO novel was great. The concepts, the setting, the MC and the villain looked promising. Then the amateur writer tried his hand at romance. Then we got that power of love shit. It was nothing to REEEEEEE about since the overall story was still ok.

Then Fairy Dance happened and gave us an uninspired copy paste world complete with a self-insert power fantasy story and a matching MC that has a cheat ability. The prototype for the modern isekai.

I read the progressive version a few months ago hoping it was him fixing SAO since he now had more experience at writing. It follows the same trend. Starts of great then slowly devolves into shit but does it at a much quicker pace. Not even 1/10th into the Aincrad arc.

TLDR: SAO was a fluke and Asuna a shit.

@sedition no people dislike SAO because they drew too much into romance when people were enjoying the rest of the story, SAO is written fine imo people just need to get over themselves and stop acting like royalty yelp reviewers.
