If may I, I want to give you a recommendation of a novel, Sword Art Online: Progressive(Novel, NOT THE MANGA).
Yeah, I know, it's fricking SAO, except that this one removed every bad element of the main-series(I even dropped the main-series at this point), I'm gonna give you a list of things that are different and upgrades:

  • The balance between the ladies and the guys is really thigher, basically for each woman introduced, there's also a lad with equal importance in the story being introduced as well, this makes the story feel really more natural, unlike the main-series, where we have like 5 girls per guy.
  • The care for the details, the story even has a tone of mystery(Mostly on volume 4 and 5), basically every detail introduced in the story will be used, ESPECIALLY in the quests, this fifth volume was the pinnacle of that.
  • The development of the characters, it seems like every characters(important to the arc) develops a little, even Kibaou(Yeah, that "annoying" guy with the spiky hair), the Asuna from the first volume is completely different to the Asuna we have now, she even went throught 2 phases of personality.
  • The RPG mechanics, if you are a fan of RPGs, you will love this work, every novel that I read that tries to talk about those mechanics make it so boring(And most of the time they don't even remember about those mechanics later in the work)... The author makes a interesting theorycrafting with those RPG mechanics, I'm sure that he loses a good time thinking about on how to use it, cuz every single mechanic that was introduced was also used, most of them I would dream to have on an actual RPG/MMO.
  • The Worldbuilding of Aincrad makes you really interested in the lore of that world, we have so much conflicts in the NPCs that it even represents the players, I can't say much more about the worldbuilding besides the fact that each floor is a whole new experience, you need to read to understand, but it will be fun, mainly and especially with the Quests being so well-made and interesting.
  • The story is so well paced that I even lost my stop at the bus and skipped some classes to read it(cuz of my bus, but I loved that experience and regret nothing).
  • The Boss fights, if there's one thing that I really like in the novel are these, the boss of the 4th Volume has to be one of the most creative bosses I've ever seen(I have played A LOT of RPGs), most of the bosses have something unique about them, and oh boi, it's always something really unexpected and terrifying.
  • Bonus: The novel shows you many sides of the characters in SAO and their motives(I'm not talking about the harem, which doesn't exists in Progressive.).

Well, you might say "But I already know the ending", actually, it could be true, but the story has heavily diverged from the main-series at this point, therefore you basically know only 0.1% of what's gonna happen in the novel, I even consider it a parallel world. The only cons that I can find is that there's not "Big ass plot" besides the Kayaba Akihiko stuff and that there's a bit of fanservice(The absolute majority of it is Kirito/Asuna tho).
I think that the series is getting better with each volume, so the first volume would be the "worst" one by now.
If you have any question about the novel, you can send me anytime.
I also have a drive with all the volumes in pdf/epub, if you want access just ask.
