Sword Art Online: Ordinal Scale has premiered in Japan, and it ends with an announcement stating “SAO will return.”
This practically confirms that the TV anime will return for a third season and will adapt the Alicization Arc, which runs in light novel volumes 9 through 18. The arc centers around Kirito awakening in a new world called “Underworld.” With no memories, Kirito learns to survive in a virtual world in which he is the only human surrounded by A.I. “people.”
Sword Art Online is one of the most popular titles in anime, so it shouldn’t be a surprise that more anime is in the works. Two seasons have been produced along with the original Sword Art Online: Ordinal Scale movie, and five video games based on the franchise are available.
Are you looking forward to Sword Art Online‘s return?
