The Aincrad Castle

Sword Art Online Newest Website: The Aincrad Castle

The Aincrad Castle

I had always wanted to create a website dedicated to one anime. I had originally intended to create a Cowboy Bebop fan page, but soon decided to give my attention to another anime, Sword Art Online. I loved this anime and literally watched it back to back. Everyone seems to get hooked on the anime because of the first half. I also read the mangas and then started to read the light novels. I felt as though I was breathing SAO. My head was filled with so much knowledge of the anime, light novels, and mangas. So I decided to create The Aincrad Castle. I wanted to get the information out there of Sword Art Online and how great it is to watch... and read.

The Aincrad Castle News and Reviews

GGO's Sinon

You can find reviews of the anime and manga here for the moment. Soon reviews of each light novel and even each episode of the anime's will be up as well. I attempt to keep up with every detail of Sword Art Online II to keep you updated. Funny posts and meme's will also be available soon to those who like to laugh. I may be a bit harsh on the manga review due to the lack of plot line. The story is great, but just like the anime, it lacks a detailed account of the SAO arc. It seems to me that they should have done Sword Art Online as a full 26 episode series as well as ALfheim Online.

The Aincrad Castle Character Information


Characters are essential to the story. So who are the main characters and what are their special abilities? Find out all that information and so much more at The Aincrad Castle Character Information page. Please do not look at the character bios if you have not seen the anime or read the light novels as it will spoil some of the story. Soon there will be polls of best character costumes as well as favorite side characters and romances of Kirito. Find out who could be future anime characters like Alice or Eugeo as well.

The Aincrad Castle Anime, Manga, and Light Novel

Fairy Dance Manga Cover

There will soon be pages that will be descriptive of each anime, manga, and light novel. Here you will be able to find out information like guilds in SAO, what Nerave Gear is, and any known monsters from the SAO anime. A detailed listing of the Aincrad castle floors will also be available. Information of the manga's will also play a role in a future page as well as possibly getting the full manga on the website to read. Any other possible pages can include AMVs (mine as well as featured AMVs of others), featured reviews, debates, polls and games, and so much more.


Even though the website is still under construction, I hope to get many people to view the site. I felt as though the official American website was lacking a bit and the format was a bit weird to navigate through. Hopefully you will enjoy The Aincrad Castle and keep up with the new updates as well as the newest information on Sword Art Online II. So please stop by and visit The Aincrad Castle!

Sword Art Online II: Gun Gale Online

Sword Art Online II: Gun Gale Online

Sword Art Online Season 2
Sinon and Kirito
Sword Art Online was such a big hit, but not satisfying enough. Now the next installment of the light novel series is considered for adaption. With it already being confirmed, most people may want to know what is in store. One can only assume the story will follow the light novel of the GGO arc. Most people will argue this as the third season, but in reality it is the third arc.

Gun Gale Online Light Novel Plot

Sword Art Online Season 2
The light novel of Sword Art Online: GGO arc follows Kirito into a new VRMMORPG. Within this game guns are the primary weapons while lightsabers and knifes are subsidiary weapons. People have recently died from the game when their avatars are killed. Sinon, a new character, has asked Kirito for help in solving the case. He leaps into the game in search for the murderers. Come to find out, three people have created an avatar called Death Gun. He carries a special weapon that kills both user and avatar at the same time. Two of those three people happen to have been part of the Laughing Coffin game from Sword Art Online. The adventure of Kirito continues again in Gun Gale Online.

Gun Gale Online New Character

Sword Art Online Season 2
Sinon the Sniper
Sinon is the new female character for this arc. Her real name is Shino Asada. She is a female sniper in GGO, who started the game to get over a childhood trauma that happened with guns. She owns a rare gun called the PGM Ultima Ratio Hecate II. At first Kirito is considered to be an opponent due to the games large competitiveness of the game. She also develops feelings for him like his other female game partners. She also joins ALfheim Online as a Cait Sith archer. Asuna gives her the nickname Sinonon.

Gun Gale Online New Feature

Sword Art Online Season 2
There is a new feature involved with Gun Gale Online, you can make real money. Within the game a player is competing against others and can earn money and use it in the real world. This gives a lot of people reason to play this game. Many people even use it as their profession and earn a lot of cash.

I am excited to see this new arc come out. I have heard rumors that it will be airing around the same time that the newest game, Hollow Fragments, is released in April of 2014. Hopefully it will follow closely to the light novels much like the first two arcs. I also would like it if the new arc covered the whole season, there are a lot of nice twists in the light as well that may take place.
