    Yep, I was just checking the SAO website a few minutes ago and saw she was in charge of the music. There’s a three minute PV on the website which has music, by the way.: http://www.swordart-online.net/movie/movie02.html

    WTH? This anime looks like a rip off of .hack//SIGN!!

    Its way better than .hack . And are you referring to just a series or the whole .hack series? I’ve read sword art online’s light novel and I dont really see it as a rip off. Even though .hack dominated this genre for anime, I think that this series will surpass .hack with a greater composer namely Kajiura-sensei and a good animation production studio behind it. It may even be able to surpass Guilty Crown’s hyp when it first started out.
    And just so you know, ALOT of animes/manga/light novels have similarities, not just this and .hack. But what makes them good is not the genre itself, it is the story and quality =3.

    SnowKiss, “greater composer”, oh really? Guess who composed the music for .hack//SIGN? Yep, that’s right, Kajiura Yuki. And if you had seen .hack//SIGN, the premise of Sword Art Online would look very familiar, much more so than “similarities”. I’ll take your word for the story and quality of the light novel though, and I’ll wait for the anime with an open mind.

    Well, I guess its just Kajiura from the present vs kajiura from the past..
