If the announcement of Sword Art Online: Alicization wasn’t enough to get you excited, it was announced at the Dengeki Bunko Fall Festival that Keiichi Sigsawa’s Sword Art Online Alternative: Gun Gale Online light novels will be receiving a television anime adaptation!

According to AnimeNewsNetwork, the story of Sword Art Online Alternative: Gun Gale Online is as follows:

The story follows Karen Kohiruimaki, a 183-centimeter-tall (6-foot-tall) college student who’s insecure her height, and is bad at dealing with people in the real world. She enters the world of Gun Gale Online with her avatar, Llenn, who is less than 150 centimeters (5 feet) tall and wears all pink. She meets a beautiful, brown-skinned female player who goes by Pitohui. They hit it off, but one day Pitohui pressures her to participate in “Squad Jam,” a team Battle Royale variation of the Bullet of Bullets tournament.

Llenn will be a playable character in the upcoming Sword Art Online: Fatal Bullet video game. As with most anime announcements,  no release date has been announced for the new TV anime; however, an official PV and Key Visual have been released which you can see below.
