The recap page for the light novel series Sword Art Online.

Due to the the overarching storylines, interrupted by numerous Plot Threads and Rotating Arcs, it’d be rather hard to see through the various plotlines and character motivations by just the episode or volume recaps. For this reason, the story summaries of Arcs longer than two episodes/volumes should go to Arc recap pages. These Arc Recaps should contain:

  • The list of the volumes/episodes from the storyline, in chronological order.
  • The summary of the plot of the entire storyline (which also means that Volume/Episode Recaps should only contain a basic outline in a few sentences).
  • Tropes that are used in more than one volume/episode of the storyline, or have an importance to the overall plot of the storyline (eg. in the case of a storyline about getting a MacGuffin, said MacGuffin should be added to the Arc Recap, instead of being listed on every Volume/Episode Recap page).
