Who knew the spin-off series of Sword Art Online would be as popular as the original? Sword Art Online Alternative Gun Gale is a story of an insecure “tall girl” whose only escape is the virtual reality game Gun Gale Online.

She enters the game as *cough cough* a loli devil character who mercilessly hunts down other players in the firearm-centered world. A second installment for the series has been announced, and here’s the information.

The Sword Art Online Alternative’s second season: Gun Gale Online, was announced during the Dengeki Bunko 30th anniversary event. A teaser trailer and visual have been released along with the announcement.

The first season of “Sword Art Online Alternative Gun Gale” ended with the “Squad Jam” tournament, a team Battle Royale variation of the Bullet of Bullets tournament.

The second season will pick up from there. Contrary to the belief, there is a lot of source material to adapt from. The anime is entertaining, but it’s nothing remarkable.
