♔ Sword Art Online Vol. 7: Mother's Rosario "Since Absolute Sword's so strong, is it possible that... it's someone from SAO?" In response to the whispered question, Lisbeth nodded with a serious expression on her face."I suspected that. But when I asked Kirito what he thought after his fight with Absolute Sword..." "What did Kirito-kun say...?" "He said that there was no way Absolute Sword was originally a SAO player. His reason being..."
"He said that if Absolute Sword existed in that world, «Dual Blades» would've been given to that person instead." -Mother's Rosario ,Chapter 1
Sword Art Online - First Day [Volume 8: Short Story] || ★
This short story tells the continuation of the events that follow the announcement made by Kayaba Akihiko in the Starting City (first floor Aincrad) during the first day of SAO’s official service. Read to find out what happens to Kirito after he leaves Klein behind in the Starting City!
I’m waiting for a better scan of this picture to edit! ><
This was one of the illustration included in the extra story wrote by Kawahara Reki and illustrated by abec-san! The story is included in the limited Bluray edition! I believe it’s related to Kirito and Asuna getting married. Not 100% sure though! Either way, this is a nice illustration!

♔Sword Art Online Vol. 5: Phantom Bullet
There was a thin gap at the front side of the glove that looked like a tattered bandage, probably a little higher from the inside of the wrist. From there, I could see his pale skin.
And on the skin, there was a squared tattoo about 5cm wide.
It was a Western Coffin that was drawn in a manga style. The lid showed a mysterious smiling face, and the lid was slightly open. A white arm reached out from the darkness inside, waving at anyone it saw. At that other world, another guy used poisoned water to numb me and got ready to kill me. At that time, he had a similar tattoo too.
That was the emblem of «Laughing Coffin». -Chaptr 6, Phantom Bullet
♔Sword Art Online Vol. 2: Aincrad Side Stories To me, you'll always be like a bright star that shines and guides me from the opposite end of a dark alley. Good-bye, Kirito. It was really fortunate of me to have met you and to have been with you. Thank you. Good Bye. -Red-Nose Reindeer
♔ Sword Art Online Vol. 8: Early and Late
I want to meet up with them.
I want to meet up with Suguha, with my mother, with my dad. I want to meet up with them. But that was not something that could be allowed. After all, the multiple electric fields let out by the Nerve Gear severed my consciousness from the real world completely, imprisoning me within this world. While holding down the sobs that my mouth was bent on gushing out, I felt like I had finally understood the situation I was in. The «truth» of this world." This is a «parallel world» that I can't meet with the people I want to. That is, the one and only truth.
That is the «reality» of this world. -Early and Late, First Day
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.
Sometimes I feel like making a SAO tags that don’t have all the other annoyance in it. From now on when I make any SAO related gifs/edits, I will also be tagging “SAOLN”. The contents doesn’t have to be LN related. Just…none of the stupidity. Anyone can tag “SAOLN” if they post edits or gifs about SAO in general. I don’t know, sometimes I want to reblog more SAO gifs and edits but going on the “Sword Art Online” or “SAO” tags is just a turn off. I wonder if this will work? LOL
