Synopsis of the novel:
October 2023, about 1 year since SAO began:
In a game you can’t log out from and that will kill you if you die. They are at level 40 out of 100. The highest ranked guilds like the ‘Dragon Knights Brigade’, ‘Tenkyuushidan’, ‘Fuurinkazan’ are competing. Then there was one player of a leading guild called ‘Knights of Blood’ who was promoted: Nautilus. He is a swordsman, very skilled with his one-handed sword.
At one point he has to enter a dungeon, where he runs into a monster with a higher level. In his fear of dying he is paralysed. Even though Nautilus ends up getting saved by a mysterious ‘Black Knight’, he loses his self-confidence.
But if he stays like that, he won’t be able to keep his promise. On that day he realised how deeply he was caught in this death game. But the promise he had given to that girl, who was more important to him than anybody else…!
What could the promise be, that was quietly exchange between a boy and a girl?
An untold story of Sword Art Online, made by Reki Kawahara.
