About Sword Art Online II
1 year after the SAO incident, Kirito is approached by Seijiro Kikuoka from Japan's Ministry of
Internal Affairs and Communications Department “VR Division” with a rather peculiar request.
That was an investigation on the “Death Gun” incident that occurred in the gun and steel filled
VRMMO called Gun Gale Online (GGO). “Players who are shot by a mysterious avatar with a
jet black gun lose their lives even in the real world…” Failing to turn down Kikuoka's bizarre
request, Kirito logs in to GGO even though he is not completely convinced that the virtual world
could physically affect the real world.
Kirito wanders in an unfamiliar world in order to gain any clues about the “Death Gun.” Then, a
female sniper named Sinon who owns a gigantic “Hecate II” rifle extends Kirito a helping hand.
With Sinon's help, Kirito decides to enter the “Bullet of Bullets,” a large tournament to choose
the most powerful gunner within the realm of GGO, in hopes to become the target of the “Death
Gun” and make direct contact with the mysterious avatar.
