J-Novel Club is publishing both the original novels and the manga adaptation digitally in English, and it describes the story:

In the year 2043, Infinite Dendrogram, the world's first successful full-dive VRMMO was released. In addition to its ability to perfectly simulate the five senses, along with its many other amazing features, the game promised to offer players a world full of infinite possibilities. Nearly two years later, soon-to-be college freshman, Reiji Mukudori, is finally able to buy a copy of the game and start playing. With some help from his experienced older brother, Shu, and his partner Embryo, Reiji embarks on an adventure into the world of Infinite Dendrogram. Just what will he discover and encounter in this game world known for its incredible realism and infinite possibilities?

Kaidou launched the story in 2015 on the Shōsetsu-ka ni Narou ("Let's Be Novelists") website, and Hobby Japan published the first volume in print with illustrations by Taiki in October 2016. The eighth volume shipped last September, with the ninth volume slated for February 1. J-Novel Club published the eighth volume digitally on January 14.

Kami Imai began drawing the manga adaptation of Kaidou's novel series on Hobby Japan's Comic Fire website in 2016, and the fourth volume will ship on Saturday.
