A More Immersive SAO
by Erica -
What I love most about n what hooked me w/ SAO was the details that made its setting a believable "old world" MMORPG; the special skills, limits/specs. of weapons, and physics of the game in- and out of battle, allowed it to live and breathe as much as the characters trapped within its virtual walls.
My biggest disappointment with the original series/anime--as enjoyable as they are--was the sacrifice of immersive detail, so the Progressive iteration is a dream come true. The manga's artist, Kiseki Himura, does an incredible job. I wish more manga looked like this.
So far Progressive is my fav way to experience the first story arc (which, to me, was its most compelling for asking "How to deal with this 'reality,' up to and including forming lasting relationships, and how can you possible explain those things to others IRL when it's all over?").
no hate though
i liked it but i liked the original manga more
