Basically the first season of the anime without the fluff. An interesting read for fans and a good entry point for those who want to understand the craze.

The manga doesn't have anywhere near as much as the anime. It doesn't describe important evnts enough.

Would make, with the addition of a few action scenes, an excellent anime movie or series.

This was a great manga, but personally, I liked the light novel and the anime much better. This version focuses too much on the romance between Kirito and Asuna, and left out some things like Kiritio saving Silica and all that. But this is also good, and I recommend it to anyone interested in something like this.

Note: This is the manga adaptation of the original Light Novel work also published by Yen Press. If you are looking for the original work (what the anime was adapted from) this manga is not the originating work.

The Light Novel series goes far more in-depth with world building and the characterization of many different characters - that version is recommended reading for anyone interested in either this or the anime series of the same name.
