The city is designed as a man-made island in the center of a large lake, connected to innumerable other isles through floating bridges stretching out in all directions.
On January 7, 2026,
Asuna and Kirito passed through this city when they arrived on the 24 th Floor of New Aincrad for Asuna to duel the mysterious « Absolute Sword». As they had arrived before 15:00, they spent some time on the south coast of an isle to the north of Panareze, reminiscing about their past while gazing at Panareze.
Later on January 11, Asuna briefly came through this city when she teleported from the
22 on her way to find Yuuki at the unnamed isle to the north of Panareze.
After Yuuki's condition worsened on March 29, Asuna again briefly went through Panareze while teleporting from the 22
nd Floor to the 24 th to reach Yuuki at the unnamed island. Later, over 1,000 players arrived from Panareze to say their farewells to Yuuki before she went on her new journey.
Panareze and surrounding islands enshrouded in fog.
