Wow, there are other people who read the licensed chinese novels! I currently live in mainland China (so I speak chinese) and 天闻角川 is currently releasing the novels (the sixth volume will be out soon), and yes, they sell for around 25 yuan (3~4 dollars) depending on the page number of the volume. The book is slightly larger than the japanese one (787mm x 1092mm) and the translation isn't bad either. Also, in China, light novels are more popular than manga, so almost all well known Japanese novels are licensed here, that includes Haruhi, DuRaRaRa,Index, Baka to Test, and more recently, Sakurasou, and new ones that will be adapted to anime

If anything, I would like to ask the people to watch the anime first then rediscover the feelings again when you read the LN version.

Let's see, I was reading SAO in the web post but I didn't go far since it was in Japanese. So in the end, it was Baka-tsuki that save my enjoyment of this series.
The bonds within stories are unbound, unexpected, unspoken.
Only the characters themselves can see the truth of their feelings.
No matter what others would deem incompatible or not.

the manga is shit isn't really all that to be honest, though its a different story if you are talking about the LN


you should watch the anime first and then read the more detailed version of the story in the LN because i have to say reading the LN first really stopped me from enjoying the anime to the fullest because i know whats gonna happen which spoils it for me and also i cant help but compare it to the LN and feel disappointed that it cut out a part or didn't follow the LN correctly while a person who hasn't read the LN would say it was brilliant and that there was nothing wrong

i dont regret reading the novels first though, i started reading it from last year and didn't even know that it was getting an anime so there is no way ill start reading it and just stop

I read it on Baka-Tsuki, but going to buy all the novels someday.
The Anime Story differs a little from the novel, well on some points a little and on other points a bit more, i think.
Still I enjoy watching and reading about Sword Art Online and probably will gonna buy the psp game and other stuff from SAO.

Where did you bought them and how did you learned Japanese if I may ask?
Because I want to buy those Volumes too, but can´t find a site that ships to germany and neither can i find any decent books for learning japanese.

I learned Japanese starting with the letters first (Hiragana and Katakana), and then learned some basic phrases by watching anime. After I got the gist of the grammar structure with the help of Yahoo Answer and Wikipedia, I started reading japanese raw mangas to build up on my Kanji and vocab. I can speak, read, and write Chinese fluently, so it didn't take too long for me until I was able to read most Japanese literature with little to no problems. It's a long, cheap, yet fun experience. If you keep at it, you'll see major improvements in a very short period of time.
Regarding the novels. I bought my books through Amazon Japan. That site does international shipping so I believe it should also ship to Germany.

I noticed that it can ship to germany, but everytime i try it they say they can´t send it to my location or the address is invalid because they need a japanese postel code that has 3 digits on the first numbers and 4 digits on the second number, such a seperate postel code isnt existing in germany, they only got something like that: 99099 and such.

About the Japanese language and grammar, there I think I have to take lessons and read books.

I downloaded the app from Baka-Tsuki so I can read the light novels right on my phone. No PDF versions.
