Sword Art Online Alternative Clover's Regret 2 (ソードアート・オンライン オルタナティブ クローバーズ・リグレット 2, Sōdo Āto Onrain Orutanatibu Kurōbāzu Riguretto 2?) is the second volume of a light novel spin-off series written by Watase Souichirou, illustrated by Ginta, and supervised by Kawahara Reki.
Clevel is an «SAO survivor» who runs a «detective business» in the VRMMO named «Asuka Empire». One day, he is visited by a girl who looks just like the «Mobile Demon Puppet - Demon Princess» , who was newly implemented into the game as part of a quest. Hired by the girl - Mahiro - to find the girl's father, who has gone missing in the real world, Clevel, along with his assistants (?), the Battle Miko Nayuta and Ninja Koyomi, dive to «Asuka Empire», where the key to the mystery lies.
Additionally, the volume compiles the "Relaxation - The Night Tale of the Hatago Inn", a story about a hot springs trip in the virtual world, «Farce - The Banquet of the Monster Mouse», a story about a big capybara festival, among other stories about quests in «Asuka Empire».
