SAO fans, what if you have not one, but two manga adaptations of your favourite light novel and anime series to look forward to?
First up, a spin-off adaptation, titled “Sword Art Online Girls Ops”, which will feature (you guessed it) the girls-only cast of Lisbeth, Silica, and Leafa. Artist Neko Nekobyō will draw the series and it will be published on the 32nd Vol. of Dengeki Bunko Magazine from June 10 onwards.
Next, the adaptation of Sword Art Online: Progressive will be published on the August issue of Dengeki G’s Magazine from June 29 onwards. It will be the revised retelling of Kirito’s journey through the floating Aincrad castle from the beginning, floor-by-floor. Kiseki Himura, doujinshi artist for series like “Fate/Stay Night dj – Sword Dancers”, “Infinite Stratos dj – The Evidence of Guilt – Mark Three” and “Mahou Shoujo Lyrical Nanoha dj – Mahou Shoujo Lyrical Nanoha BetrayerS” will pen the series.
