As for the last part, all I meant was that, because this is a "light" novel, Kawahara can only explain so many details (whether realistic or not) about the virtual realities and how they function, so we can't fault him if some of his explanations lack a little here and there.


And the nice thing about Kawahara is even if he missed some type of explanation he usually will come back to it in a Side story of sorts lol
Moving on to new subject Are there going to be more releases of Rondo? Cause I only read to chapter 9 and its good so far!! As well as has the New SAO book been released in Japan yet? not the Book for More Alicization the redo of Aincrad Arc I believe?

Let me explain: Rondo of the Transient Sword, the one you read, was the original web version, which is currently be translated by Pryun. As for the new SAO book, known as Sword Art Online Progressive, is a series of side stories about how Kirito and the others progressed from floor to floor in Aincard, which was never covered much in the proper SAO series. Rondo is actually one of the side stories in the first Progressive volume, along with Aria in the Starless Night, but it is an edited version that was made for publication, so it has a few changes from the original. No one's translating it, though, until proper text raws can be obtained, so you may have to wait a little while for that.

If they don't plan to translate Rondo and Aria from Progressive, will they do Interlude - Reason for the Whiskers chapter? Or if they plan to do them both will they do Interlude first, since everyone will most likely read the ones already translated.

From what I heard, all of the Progressive chapters will be translated even if the web versions have already been done. (Though who and when is still up in the air.) As for the Interlude, the web version of it has also already been translated, just go to the "ME7: Continuation: Aria in the Starless Night" in the SAO Material Editions side stories. (The author simply gave it a formal name in the Progressive volume, it's the same short story.)

I translated ME7, and I also plan to adapt it to match the Reason of the Whiskers in SAOP1, but so far, there is no raw for this book yet, so I can do nothing but wait.

Ahh Alright I see now it makes sense it being the Web Novel version.. I am excited to see it all translated and everything I am patient for that (Not really I want more SAO NAO haha) I just like all the additions that keep coming to this story filling up the blanks we dont know.

Yeah, Eternal Dreamer kindly sent me the Argo chapter part for me to work on, and a couple days later, a raw of entire book popped up, I translated Afterword from that raw, after all.

Well there are other funny moments, but these seemed the heaviest to me.
I kind of impressed of the names "Urd", "Belldandy" and "Skuld" being in the Caliber side story. I enjoyed it, containing many of familiar memories
I still lol-ed at «Skill Connect» when Kirito made it sound it's just a simple game skill outside the system. Because it isn't an official or recognizable skill, it was named and founded through hardships by Kirito, like a true "beater skill".
I also noticed here Thor mustn't be considered as an ally of human kind, well at least for those 7 + one + one
Spoiler! :
..but the opposite
"Nu huhuhu...... you little bugs can enjoy your triumph now. But let your guard against the æsir down and you'll see painful experience...... Because they are the true..."

let your guard down against the æsir(true threat), they seemed not to care and didn't go for a investigation to Thor's tribe

Just go read Aria and Rondo side stories. Everything is almost the same, with minor changes here and there. i believe someone is trying to find the (minor) differences and then compiling it together, but no idea who it is.

I was going to, till I ran into The Day Before and stuff.
That said, I think Eternal Dreamer's planning to do Aria?
