Everytime I see Light Novel [series name] gets anime adaptation I get a heart drop. I'm waiting for both Konjiki no Word Master and How a Realist Hero Rebuilt the Kingdom to be announced. If they do get announced, just know I'll be excited. And you all will be the first ones to know.

They don't look like Kirito and Asuna but I think their character reference is them

The only time I can see where this makes sense with the comparison is with Asuna... Kirito??? Not really? They look nothing alike at least compared to the original source's designs on its own.

With that being said, well... I say I'll give this a shot, since it looks interesting on its own.

The guy doesn't look like Kirito at all, just look at a picture that shows him in detail.

I guess the girl does look like Asuna. But Asuna has one of the most generic character designs anyway, half of anime heroines look like her.

I almost read this as assassins creed game adaptation until i saw the cover lol. Btw the cover doesn't look any original at all.

This has to be harem, if not, then it'll literally be 10x worse than it is. Also considering that the cover picture shows thicc thighs, I'm pretty sure it have some wholesome thigh scenes...

I read some of the manga and it was pretty good but I dropped it cause I got bored and mainly because of a certain scene... maybe the anime will be better.

Oh wow, washed out Kirito and Asuna. Only judging by the girl's expression, she has really shitty personality. Cunt with sword, what could possibly go wrong. Tell me she's voice by Kugumiya and the shit constellation is almost complete.
