Which is better ? Progressive or original Side Stories ?

Postby Schadows » Tue Aug 20, 2013 7:51 am

Hi,

I wanted to read the side stories about Kirito and Asuna in the early floors, and understood that it was told both in the SAO Progressive light Novel and in the original SAO Side stories.

Foreseeing I won't have the willpower to read both version if they are very similar, which one would you recommend ?
Does the later "Progressive" more refined ? or was it just simplified to appeal to a new public ?

Regards.

They're the same thing, really. You'll see more difference in translation style than editorial disparity, and both of them are quite minute. Besides, the available ones are only short stories anyway. The long one (RotTS) isn't translated fully yet.
