You may call this shameless advertising. Honestly, the SAO tags is really annoying. Even though I don’t go on it anymore, the annoyance still manages to leak out and reach me. To the people who are making a thousand of silly theories and to the people with a thousand of questions/complaints about plot holes…READ MY SAO ANIME TO LIGHT NOVEL COMPARISON. They may help you guys to understand the anime a lot better and as a result will make the SAO tags a better place to frequent. I won’t force you to read them since they are lengthy (really lengthy). However, if you care or are just curious as for what the anime left out…please read them. They are spoiler free, meaning NO spoilers.
If you don’t want to read my comparisons but want to read the actual novels, take a look at my [Guide] How to read SAO Light Novels.
The comparisons for episode 15 is not finished yet. As for episode 16, I didn’t even watch it yet because I am still waiting for UTWoots subs.
