Sword Art Online Progressive Volume 6 (ソードアート・オンライン プログレッシブ 006, Sōdo Āto Onrain Puroguresshibu 006?) is the sixth installment in the "Progressive" series, a reboot of the original Sword Art Online light novel series written by Kawahara Reki. This volume is the second and last part of a two volume-long story that covers the events that took place while clearing the 6th Floor of Aincrad. It was released on May 10, 2018.
On «Aincrad»'s 6th floor, Kirito and Asuna finally reunite with the dark Elven Knight Kizmel.
The two invite her to their party to tackle the «Jade Key» return quest taking place from the 3rd floor onward, but unpredictable developments await them.
NPCs even more sensitive than AIs appear one after another. Fallen Elves with their eyes on the «Jade Key» skulk in the shadows. Something completely new happens with the «Stachyon's Curse» quest. And the claws of the «inciting PK group»――Can Kirito and Asuna avoid the cunning traps ensnaring Kizmel and the NPCs, and break through the 6th floor?!
