Sword Art Online Alternative: Gun Gale Online Light Novel To Be Released Next Month

It’s potentially old news but American based Manga and Light Novel publisher YenPress have today confirmed through social media channels that the first volume of the Sword Art Online Alternative: Gun Gale Online Light Novel will be released on the 26th June 2018.

Inspired by the ‘Gun Gale’ arc of the Sword Art Online story, Sword Art Online Alternative: Gun Gale Online is a stand-a-lone story within the Sword Art Online universe that takes place within the VRMMO Shooter Gun Gale Online (or GGO for short) and follows the short, but adorable, Ren as she demonstrates her ability within the game.

Synopsis: The fact that Kohiruimaki Karen is 183 centimeters tall has always been something she’s felt extremely self-conscious about as an introverted high school girl. But in the world of games, she can be whoever she wants to be! In the popular Gun Gale Online game, she’s Ren, a short, all pink, P90 wielding bombshell who’s aiming to win the next battle royale!

Sword Art Online Alternative: Gun Gale is just one of many books that YenPress will be publishing into English speaking regions next month as the publisher will also be releasing the first volumes of Hatsu*Haru, Napping Princess, Little Witch Academia, Shibuya Goldfish, The Strange Creature at Kuroyuri Apartments and Stupid Love Comedy. A full list of manga and light novels being released by YenPress can be found on the official website.

The anime adaptation of Sword Art Online Alternative: Gun Gale Online is currently being broadcast on Crunchyroll.
