SAO boom!!

Didnt even know that new volume released.. Now 100 years to wait for the translations, damn ;(


The English release is completely caught up with the Japanese one so it shouldn't be long to wait at all.
At the rate the others came out, probably still half a year.

Still trying to get my hands on volume 2 and 3 too.

Wish GATE sold more.


I wish Gate sold more too :c


You know that's a rerelease, right?

Dec 17, 2015 7:05 AM by kuuderes_shadow

Can't wait for the English release of Sword Art Online: Progressive Vol 4, will buy it for sure :D

Well, it's selling well and it may be the tiniest of my hopes but I wish it's gets an adaptation within the next 3 years. Btw who's the blonde on the cover?


I don't have volume 1 on my right now but I believe the author said that he will write 1 volume a year and is planning to cover all 75 floors. He also said that he will see how it will play out. So I think a anime adoption is out of the question.

Argo.

She's a borderline main character in Progressive.

Where did that come from? Not often something takes me completely by surprise on these rankings, but that managed it.

Considering it has the same characters as the best seller Scarlet Wizard (which is Kayata Sunako's main verse with several series, like turuuk no kaizoku that finished last year), that verse should logically have quite a good number of fans.


I didn't realise that. That makes sense, then.
