・Finished SAO 8 (p 371 → 416) I liked the last side story. Explored some actual plot related stuff and had a nice pace, felt like watching a video game. Would love to explore more in-game stuff. The second side story felt kind of random and had too much describing stuff at the start, but I liked the action and the ending wasn’t too bad. Also liked the first side story (which was the longest one, more than half the book) - I remembered parts of it from having watched the anime years back.
Overall, pretty okay book. I don’t have the next book, but I do have SAO Progressive book 1. Will probably read it later this year.
・Finished Kono Oto Tomare vol. 5
・Read 70% of Kono Oto Tomare vol. 6. Will try to finish the rest of the volumes before the “free” campaign ends next week. Good series so far, I really enjoy it.
