Linked up and logged into the deadly VMMORPG "Sword Art Online" in both the real and virtual worlds, Kirito is stuck in a hell of one man's making, and like everyone else, unable to escape until the game is beaten. But while some players are crippled by fear and others throw themselves into completing the game, still others relax into everyday life in the face of their cruel predicament and live to the best of their ability...laughing, crying, but always enjoying the game. Among them are four women who make a mark upon the solo adventurer that Kirito has become: Silica, the beast-tamer; Lisbeth, the blacksmith; Yui, the mysterious orphan; and the tragic Sachi, never to be forgotten by the black swordsman...

Basically the first season of the anime without the fluff. An interesting read for fans and a good entry point for those who want to understand the craze.

The manga doesn't have anywhere near as much as the anime. It doesn't describe important evnts enough.

Would make, with the addition of a few action scenes, an excellent anime movie or series.

This was a great manga, but personally, I liked the light novel and the anime much better. This version focuses too much on the romance between Kirito and Asuna, and left out some things like Kiritio saving Silica and all that. But this is also good, and I recommend it to anyone interested in something like this.

Note: This is the manga adaptation of the original Light Novel work also published by Yen Press. If you are looking for the original work (what the anime was adapted from) this manga is not the originating work.

The Light Novel series goes far more in-depth with world building and the characterization of many different characters - that version is recommended reading for anyone interested in either this or the anime series of the same name.
