Which executives? SAO's, Accel World's, or Digimon's?
I'd rather say Digimon is set in the future. See, first we have SAO - NerveGear technology. In the second arc, someone gets trapped in ALO and experimented upon as the company tries to develop mind control through VR. Then we have Accel World - people who lives interfaced with virtual reality, and can even speed up their own mind processes through cybernetics. Basically, it's the beginning of trans-humanism. As time goes on, this evolution clearly goes on. When humanity tries to evolve to the next stage and become a race of completely digitalized beings - achieving basically immortality by uploading one's conscience on the net and leaving the body behind - these are the Digimon. But they find out that something has gone horribly wrong - they can't unleash their full potential on their own, they STILL need a human presence. Many die off before this can be achieved. The remaining few manage to create a time machine - one that does not transport matter, only information, through time. They use it to fetch the consciences of boys from the past and bring them to their world so that they can assist them. TMWhat do you say?
All of them. They'll be coming after you like starved hyenas.
One hyena for each of them:
I say the right one represents SAO.
We think exactly the same

i dont know, i dont completely agree with that. from a psychological , and mainly a sociological point of view, this story is actually good to discuss. in the sense of relationships in the virtual world, and in what can be defined as a real relationship. as i understand from the class information display (according to google translate) they say that they're going to discuss it in this light. but i agree with you in that its a literature class, and why put that in the syllabus of a literature class, when there are other better choices.
American live action adaptation of SAO is in the making.My first reaction was just WHY, but then it occurred to me... Given how bad the source material was, an extremely loose and Americanized adaptation might just actually be a significant improvement in this case.
Saw that. When will people learn!? Just making it "live action" does NOT make it good. Mario Bros., The Last Airbender, Dragonball Evolution, the list goes on and on. Please, for the love of everything that matters, STOP MAKING EVERY SINGLE FUCKING THING LIVE ACTION!!!
