    Hey everyone, this time, I'm bringing you something that is outside of the Wikia's initiative. As we work on building the Alicization Episode pages with all their details, until that is complete, I can offer you a project I've been doing on my personal Youtube channel that may ease the gap for you! In Sword Art Online Alicization Explained series, I go through the episode, with a short review, followed by a direct comparison between the Alicization Anime Episode and the parts it covered in the Alicization Light Novels! Being an adaptation, Alicization Anime can't cram every single bit of information into its 20 minute run, so certain things are left on the cutting floor or just glossed over in a rushed manner. With these videos, I aim to p…

    With Kirito's birthday, we got a bunch of news right after the first episode of Alicization Arc finished airing on October 7 in Japan! So, as usual, we decided to work on a blog post to provide you the latest and juiciest news in a way that'd make Argo proud! Well, maybe not usual, we are still testing out blog posts, so we'd love to hear if you enjoy hearing the news without leaving the Wikia in this blog post form!

    For those who don't want to wait for news recap posts and want to learn everything as they come, we strongly recommend following us on twitter at the handle @SAO_Wikia! And mind you, this news post is not yet complete, as the Dengeki Autumn Festival is just hours away and has 2 separate stages available, one for SAO Anime conte…

    Hey everyone, recently on Wikia, we decided to take some new steps to provide better coverage of certain news. More on that at the end.

    To start off, we are going to look at today's Dengeki Playstation livestream, featuring Sword Art Online: Fatal Bullet, mainly the recently announced DLC4, Dissonance of the Nexus aka The Diva of the Snow Fields, as well as the Free Update that is coming before DLC4. A reminder that we do not have dates for any of the two at the moment, but we will share them with you as soon as we get something, probably during Dengeki Autumn Festival.

    The video above features all the gameplay clips included on the stream.

    The most notable topics during the stream was the showcase of the brand new area for Fatal Bullet DLC4,…

    I don't understand why people hate Sword Art Online.

    Just a few weeks ago, I was talking with a few friends of mine over our mutual interest in anime. One mentioned that the anime that had led her into the anime/manga world was Shingeki no Kyoujin(Attack on Titan). Another mentioned that he, too, was led into the anime world through that. The discussion went all round, and when I said the thing that had started me off was, of course, Sword Art Online, the picture of disgust on my friends' faces could not be clearer.

    One of them openly declared that Sword Art Online was, quote on quote, "a trash anime", while another only mildly agreed, interjecting the fact that "Reki should've stopped at Season One. Season Two was sooooo boring." Another tr…

    Lately, Ive been going over the light novels again, waiting for the translation of Volume 18 to finish, and I got the feeling that Kawahara Reki was kinda milking the plot. The plot frame, in the very least. I believe that the plot goes somewhat according to this general template.

    1. The plot always takes place in some virtual reality world.

    2. The main character/narrator is always Kirito/Kazuto Kirigaya.

    3. There will always be some incident involving a girl, sometimes being the trigger incident and other times being a side incident.

    4. There will be some "breaking of the rules"; i.e. Defying the virtual rules and limitations of the said virtual world and defeating the antagonist. Or rebelling against the system, in general.

    5. There is always…

    Ok. I'm bored. My kids have introduced me to a few new animes, but SAO is still my favorite. So here's what I'd like to see coming in SAO.

    • Ordinal Scale on Blu-Ray
    • Season 3 of the anime
    • Sugary Days collected and edited into a single volume
    • Progressive Volumes 5 thru the end of the Elf War Campaign Quest
    • The main series of novels moving the timeline forward from the end of the Alicization arc

    TL;DR: Don't use translation from CrunchyRoll (or BakaRoll, since they are bound to have translation errors).

    • For Season 1 and Extra Edition, these country has been licensed: Siberia, Russia, Lithuania, Finland. And for country that hasn't/won't be licensed: Indonesia, German, America. For other country: hasn't been confirmed.

    Ordinal Scale Review

    April 11, 2017 by Mamue

    Hey, it’s time I wrote my thoughts on Ordinal Scale down too, before I forget them. This could and probably will contain spoilers. Consider yourself warned.

    I watched the movie in Japanese with German subtitles in a cinema. The plot ties in flawlessly to the main story after the end of SAO II (Mother’s Rosario), there is no hint that the movie was originally planned as a story after Alicization ended.

    The animations were of an amazing quality. Sadly, that is also the reason scenes from the anime are distinctly discovered as flashbacks, as their quality is a huge drop compared to all new visuals.

    The subtitles were great, no spelling or grammar errors to be found. One or two times throughout the movie, Leafa was misspelled Leefa and Lyfa, though sh…

  • Asuuki

    There are two choices...either Asuna or Eugeo. Who had the strongest connection with Kirito? Remember, Asuna and Kirito got to know each other very well in Aincrad as well as spending a year and a half with together in the real world. However, also keep in mind that Eugeo was with Kirito throughout the course of two years, so he deffinitely got to know Kirito pretty well too. I do NOT count the 10 childhood years Kirito spent with Eugeo as Kirito does not remember them. After reading all the way through to chapter 16 so far, I can see why everybody was saying that he was a very good friend to Kirito.

    So take your pick...who is Kirito's best friend? Is it Asuna or Eugeo?

    Edit: Now that the movie has come out, I think that should deffinitely b…

    Starting with the observation, I recently finished reading the four SAOP light novels and I realized something. They aren't narrative stories, but rather are memoirs, generally from Kirito's perspective.

    To back up my claim, I noticed twice that Kirito refers to something that he had no knowledge of at the time these stories are occurring. The first one is a reference to Cardinal, but I filled that as "odd". The second one was the smoking gun.

    While recounting the aftermath of the fifth floor boss fight, after the encounter with ALS, Asuna is upset. Kirito comments that "much, much, much later" Asuna told Kirito that she was afraid he was going to say something stupid. That's not the sort of statement that would be in a present time narrativ…

    Hello guys. I'm relatively new here (just created account few days ago and wrote about 20 posts), but I have been diehard fan of SAO since 2012 - first anime season. Since then it's been one of my favourite series. So now, 4 years has passed and I can proudly say that I finally bought light novel series: volume 1 to 11 as so much got published with official translation in my country. As you can see in the title, it is my first light novel I ever bought, and only my third product from Japan (the first was Love Hina #1 of manga and second plastic model of Wing Gundam Zero Custom).

    Warning: Spoilers for web novels and end of Volume 18. Continue reading at your own risk. So apparently the main light novel series won't be ending at 18 volumes. From what I've heard so far, at the end of volume 18 there was a teaser that Kirito will be returning again, whatever that mean. Nevertheless, I find this prospective future to be intriguing. I look forward to seeing what's in store.

    Which has prompted a few questions I would like to ask of you: what do you think will happen to Alice? According to the web novels, she gained a ridiculously humanoid robot body to interact in the real world, so what will she do afterwards? Will she be successful in winning full equality and rights for other advanced AI like her in her lifspan? Will t…

    Leafa Leafa's weapon is called Valduras(?) Anima (ヴァーデュラス・アニマ). It's the one-handed sword with the green jewel seen with her in the cover of volume 17.

    Sinon Sinon's weapon is a bow called Annihilate Ray (アニヒレート・レイ).

    It seems that there are special abilities coming with the super accounts (or the weapons, I still don't know).

    Asuna ability is called "Mugen Chikei Sosa" (無限地形操作).

    Leafa ability is called "Museigen Kaifuku" (無制限回復).

    There is no current plan for Alicization to be animated YET. I only know that arcs are animated once the arc is finished. Longest arc, I know. But we can only wait.... for a few years.

    So now you know who I am, an info hunter on Alicization. Occasionally I do other arcs, but I can't do the GAMES. That's my limit, anything other than games I can do, which is ironic, 'cause I am a gamer. Anyways, I bid you all a nice day. c:
