I’ve being stalking Dengeki Bunko’s website for a while just to see the illustration preview of SAO volume 12 light novel. Anyway, here it is! Sword Art Online Volume 12 - Alicization Rising! It’s so pretty, once again abec did a wonderful job! The cost of the volume is 620 Yen.
The strongest «Integrity Knights» attack Kirito and Eugeo in the Central Cathedral Tower—!
Eugeo finally met once again with the girl he has been chasing since youth, Alice. However, that Alice had no trace of her past self—the time when she was in «Rulid village». Alice was there to arrest Kirito and Eugeo who broke the Taboo Index.
The girl had none of her childhood memories and introduced herself as an «Integrity Knight».
Kirito and Eugeo were chained in the underground jail of the «Axiom Church», the «Central Cathedral», but they escaped thanks to Kirito’s cleverness. With some assistance from a mysterious young girl, Cardinal, who Kirito saw through as one from the «outside», the pair now aim for the tower’s summit to return Alice to her «original self»!
However, those born as the strongest warriors through the «Synthesis Ritual» stand before Kirito and Eugeo—! (Edited from Tap’s translation on B-T forum)
