    You and me both.
    Why do people just assume everyone understands their acronyms?
    You have people talking about QYWAW novel
    How the hell am I supposed to know what it means? :blobangery::mad:

    it is virtual reality RPG and since it's aired in 1999 that's 3 years before .hack (2002) but it's not MMO.

    Well, that the whole title of the novel. The source kinda hard to find since the translator didn't state the source of the raw. Google search didn't help either since the keyword is too general. But some said that novel even predate SAO WN. Yeah you heard me right, SAO was a WN before this.

    There is no way to know. The first VRMMORPG or deathgame that I can think of would be Tron even though there was only one actual player in that. that was in the 80s, way before the internet. There was probably some fanfic on a bbs somewhere in Japan or Korea about that time. Well never know, the writer would be in his/her 50s by now.

    Yep. Adding a bit info from the thread, the translator once said he got the raw from ppl close with the author himself/herself. I think he going to pass the baton to other ppl willing to translate EC at that time, but no one willing to i think. Kinda explain why the raw are next to impossible to find. Well if by chance someone got a hand on it and resume the translation, imma be the 1st one to bookmark lol. Trust me, the setting is unique even by today standard.

    The first VR type concept I remember is Dragon Drive, but I'm sure there are prior. If we are talking about simply going into a virtual world than Gridman the Hyper Agent (though I watched the english counterpart). Not sure if these had novels or not though.

    I am pretty confident .hack is more popular than LMS. Maybe not in the novel community, but globally, it is (it is a franchise with games, anime, manga, novels, toys and etc)
