One year after the SAO incident, Kirito is approached by Seijiro Kikuoka from Japan's Ministry of Internal Affairs and Communications Department "VR Division" with a rather peculiar request.

That was an investigation on the "Death Gun" incident that occurred in the gun and steel filled VRMMO called Gun Gale Online (GGO). "Players who are shot by a mysterious avatar with a jet black gun lose their lives even in the real world..." Failing to turn down Kikuoka's bizarre request, Kirito logs in to GGO even though he is not completely convinced that the virtual world could physically affect the real world.

Kirito wanders in an unfamiliar world in order to gain any clues about the "Death Gun." Then, a female sniper named Sinon who owns a gigantic "Hecate II" rifle extends Kirito a helping hand. With Sinon's help, Kirito decides to enter the "Bullet of Bullets," a large tournament to choose the most powerful gunner within the realm of GGO, in hopes to become the target of the "Death Gun" and make direct contact with the mysterious avatar.

SAO = .hack//Quantum. Simple as.

-People use virtual reality devices.
-Protags are stuck in game along with others.
-Die in game, die IRL.
-Created purposefully by one mastermind.
-Only some people get out alive in the end.

All in all, SAO is like 9001 times better, longer and more thrilling. But this is literally the same, except in .hack protags are girls and aren't OP.
When it come to SAO II and Accel Word -

-Both are created by the same person!!
-Both exist in the same world.
-Both have virtual reality games.
-Both have a system where they can dive into the online network.
-Both enter voluntarily.
-Both have the same genre that is - action,adventure,roman and shounen.

- And Accel world is 20 years after SAO II and Accel world has tons of references to SAO II!!

And lastly,
Both definitely worth your time to watch!! >.<
