“I’d like to do a bit of promotional plugging on this page here. You probably already know this from looking at the book’s wraparound jacket band, but at the end of 2013 the Sword Art Online TV anime series will be getting a TV special.

Although the year-end TV special is fundamentally a compilation of the Aincrad and Fairy Dance chapters from the 2012 TV anime series, there will be some new scenes added.

It’s been almost a year since we’ve all been able to see Kirito move around in animated form on a TV screen, so please do watch the TV special.”
