[Kiss&Fly manga] The Day Before


Earlier this week on 10 March saw the release of the volume 1 of the Kiss and Fly manga adaptation. For those out of the loop, Kiss and Fly (SAO LN volume 22) is a collection of side stories that were originally released as Blu-Ray/DVD limited edition exclusives. However, since SAO had its 10 year anniversary last year, these exclusives were re-released as part of the main SAO LN series... and then the side story collection got itself a manga adaptation to boot... The first of the stories included in this side story collection manga adaptation is The Day Before, a side story taking place during the Aincrad arc the day after Kirito proposed to Asuna on the 61st Floor. The story chronicles an adventure the two had before they were able to purchase the log house of their dreams and register their marriage in the system. The art for the manga is just ♡, so I hope you all enjoy reading the story.

Also, I would like to dedicate this release to one of the SAO Wikia's editors Valgaaf, who's a big fan of the KiriAsu ship. I had originally planned to release this translation on his birthday as a birthday gift... but things don't always work out.

Finally, a standard thank you to all of those who contributed to the SAO Scans project for helping us get the raws.

P.S., Argo has a speech quirk - the last syllable in her sentences is always written in katakana, rather than hiragana. To account for this, we used special formatting to emphasise the final letter in her sentences.

Any feedback is appreciated.
