Kirito wanders in an unfamiliar world in order to gain any clues about the “Death Gun." Then, a female sniper named Sinon who owns a gigantic "Hecate II" rifle extends Kirito a helping hand.

With Sinon's help, Kirito decides to enter the “Bullet of Bullets,” a large tournament to choose the mos powerful gunner within GGO, in hopes to become the target of the “Death Gun” and make direct contact with the mysterious avatar.

Don't expect to see things like violence, swearing, kung-fu action or magical girls. The plots are more like "Today, Sazae-san goes to the new mall and gets lost". Such "boring" plotlines and the simplistic art are often a turn-off to non-Japanese audiences, but most Japanese find the show incredibly good.
