It really doesn't NEED another season, the way they ended it was ok. Maybe a future OVA-Special about how everything started, but something else: not really needed. It would make things worse in my opinion.

Wow..All 10 Sword Art Online Novels total up to like 2-2.2M Sold copies.

Aug 9, 2012 5:14 PM by Tyrel

Ugh... One Piece and Naruto...
Hetalia? Aweesome :)))) I don't usually see that up there.

Anime ending was pretty conclusive, at least as much as a show like that can be. Do the novels pick up from there with a different story, or did the anime have an original ending that would make continuing impossible? I assumed the latter.

In any case it sold very poorly, so while the good novels sales might drive a sequel, that would also sell poorly, and I'm guessing PA Works is much more interested in doing other things with their limited time even if a sequel were pitched to them. Tari Tari is going to blow away Another's sales (though I liked Another better myself), for example.


The anime followed the novels from what I know. But there's supposed to be a novel sequel, or one in the future.

I just wish it would show how the original curse started and how to permanently end it, not just halt it.

WTB third season of Sekirei + Sora no Otoshimono

Who cares about SAO anymore, Pandora Hearts vol. 18 is up there and that's all I needed to see.

Picked up the Hetalia 5 special edition.

Aug 9, 2012 5:53 AM by shinkeikaku

wonder whether the SAO blueray/dvd sales will be similar to the LN or just compensate them

Aug 9, 2012 5:32 AM by Raphow

With the way things are going looks like SAO has the potential to become a running series? or at the least a definite Season 2, just like KnB <3
