[Aincrad Night] 2nd Night

On the second night, Kirito was visited by... the Girls Ops! Also, starting from this chapter, the manga starts using stories from the original One Thousand and One Nights for some plot. This night, we have The Hunchback's Tale. Since the manga doesn't exactly explain the plot of that story well, but the story is reenacted in a way in the manga, here's a summary of that story (Mttblue2 also included it in on the relevant manga page):

For reference, I used this version of the story, since it also included that character at the end which was referenced in the manga (other versions I found did not have any mention of him).

In other news, the last issue of the SAO Magazine, as the last page of this manga mentions, included two chapters instead of one. The second chapter has already been translated and given to Mttblue2 for typesetting, thus it should be released soon enough. Also, the tankoubon version of the manga has been listed on Amazon for release on March 10, if anyone is interested. I'm guessing that the manga could be approaching the end of its serialisation already.

Thanks to all of those who contributed to the SAO Scans project for helping us get the raws.

Any feedback is appreciated.
