Here’s the trailer for Sword Art Online The Movie – Progressive- Scherzo of Deep Night:
Sword Art Online (published by Dengeki Bunko) is a light novel series by Reki Kawahara, winner of the 15th Dengeki Bunko Novel Grand prize. The story revolves around main character Kirito and his heroics as a player in Sword Art Online, a next generation VRMMORPG (virtual reality massive multiplayer online role-playing game). The light novel series has enjoyed massive popularity since Volume One was first published in April 2009, with cumulative worldwide sales topping 30 millions copies by 2022.
An anime adaptation, Sword Art Online Season 1, aired in 2012, followed by four more seasons to date. In 2017, a theatrical film, Sword Art Online The Movie: Ordinal Scale, was released. Additionally, the franchise has produced a wide-ranging media mix of games, manga, and more. Sword Art Online Progressive is a reboot light novel series, penned by Kawahara himself, offering a deeper look at where it all began, on Aincrad’s first floor.
The film follows protagonist Asuna as she continues her journey through the virtual reality death game, where “Game Over” means death in the real world.
This may be a game, but it’s not something you play.
The world’s first VRMMORPG (Sword Art Online) became a game of death. Over a month has passed since 10,000 users were trapped inside the game world. Asuna, who cleared the first floor of the floating iron castle of Aincrad, joined up with Kirito and continued her journey to reach the top floor. With the support of female Information Broker Argo, clearing the floors seemed to be progressing smoothly, but…
Conflict erupts between two major guilds who should be working together – the top player groups ALS (the Aincrad Liberation Squad) and DKB (the Dragon Knights Brigade). And meanwhile, behind the scenes exists a mysterious figure pulling the strings….
In a dangerous battle of death, there is an assault that differs from the threat, and it will involve Asuna and Kirito…!
