Anything Similiar to SAO?

Postby Ghizz » Tue Jul 17, 2012 2:21 am

As the subject title reads, are there any light novels/mangas/anything that is remotely similar to SAO? Love this genre and would love to read more.

"1/2 Prince" and "Moonlight Sculptor" I guess?
Though they are similar to SAO only in VR-MMO component...

Depends on what genre you are referring to exactly.

But for one, you can try Accel World, written by the same author(I'm surprised noone mentioned it!)
You need not forgive me.
For those I love,
The violence brought about by sinful men
Shall now be used once more.
If you were created to save this world,
If there is a single shred of hope left for the future of mankind,
I am very sorry, but, please begone!

There is BTOOOM!. It isn't exactly in a game but ppl are forced into a death match based off of a game. Anime is up to epi. 3 and I haven't been following the manga. Good luck in your quest my friend.
