Bahasa Indonesia Português Edit links. Season 3. Promotional poster. October 7, — September 20, List of episodes. Story arc 4: Alicization. Part 1: Alicization Beginning. October 7, [d]. February 10, . Inside an unknown VR environment, Kirito spends his days as a child with his friends Eugeo and Alice. The three get lost in a cave in the outskirts of the Human Territory, ending up at the boundary of the Dark Territory. Alice trips and falls with her hand accidentally touching the Dark Territory.
For this violation, she is sentenced to execution by the Integrity Knights. Kirito attempts to stop Alice from being taken away, while Eugeo stands motionless. Soon after, Kirito awakens in the real world with no memory of what happened. Later in Gun Gale Online, Sinon, Kirito, Asuna, Silica, Lisbeth, and Klein confront a mysterious squad that flees after one of them is taken down. After the battle, Sinon thanks the others for joining her, and back in the real world, she invites Kirito and Asuna to join her in the upcoming BoB tournament.
They agree, and Kirito reveals that he is working for the Rath Company as a tester for a new Full-Dive technology known as "Soul Translator", or STL. On their way home, Kirito and Asuna are attacked by Johnny Black, the final survivor of the Death Gun incident, who injects Kirito with a poison syringe. October 14, Kirito awakens back in Underworld, but he does not remember how he got there.
He encounters Eugeo, but they have no memories of each other. After helping Eugeo with his daily task of chopping the Demon Tree, Kirito is taken to Eugeo's village, where he discovers that he can activate his sword skills from back in SAO.
After finding shelter at the local church, Kirito decides that he must learn more about his circumstances before looking for a way to return to the real world. October 21, While chopping the Demon Tree, Eugeo explains to Kirito the reason why Alice was taken prisoner by the Integrity Knights.
He also reveals the sword he retrieved from the End Mountains, and they attempt to cut the tree with it, but they discover that their skill levels are not yet high enough to use it. Later at night, Kirito has a conversation with Selka, Alice's younger sister, and reveals to her what he heard about Alice from Eugeo. The next day, Selka disappears and both Kirito and Eugeo realize that she must have gone to the End Mountains as well. In the mountains, they discover that Selka was captured by goblins.
As the goblins prepare to attack Kirito and Eugeo, Eugeo becomes paralyzed by fear. October 28, Kirito helps Eugeo regain his composure and they fight the goblins together. While facing the goblin leader, Eugeo is gravely wounded and both he and Kirito remember their past together. An enraged Kirito kills the goblin leader and convinces the others to retreat. After the battle, Kirito frees Selka and she uses her magic to transfer a part of Kirito's energy to Eugeo in order to save his life.
During the transfer, Kirito has a vision of an unknown woman who tells him that she is waiting for him and Eugeo atop the Central Cathedral. After Eugeo recovers, Kirito, having gained enough skill points from the battle to use the sword from the End Mountains, deals a heavy blow to the Demon Tree, and Eugeo asks him to teach him swordsmanship.
After completing his training, Eugeo uses the sword to finally cut down the Demon Tree, and the village holds a celebration for his feat.
During the occasion, Eugeo is allowed to choose his next occupation, and he decides to become a swordsman. Kirito and Eugeo then depart for Central City, hoping to find Alice and bring her back home. November 4, After being poisoned by Johnny Black, Kirito is taken to a hospital. After treating him, the doctors inform Asuna and Kirito's family that he is stable, but unconscious, and it is unknown when, or if, he will ever wake up.
Kikuoka then approaches them, offering to transfer Kirito to a better facility, but when Asuna and Suguha pay a visit to him there, they are prevented from seeing him. With help from Yui and the rest of her friends, Asuna tracks down Kirito all the way to the port, and discovers that he must have been taken somewhere abroad.
After learning that the Soul Translator was a technology developed by Akihiko Kayaba, Asuna contacts Rinko Koujiro, Kayaba's former lover and co-researcher. Some time later, accompanied by her secretary, Mayumi Reynolds, Rinko is taken to the "Ocean Turtle", an offshore research facility where she is welcomed by Kikuoka.
After passing numerous security checks, Mayumi, revealing herself as Asuna in disguise, asks Kikuoka where Kirito is. November 11, March 24, [e]. Kikuoka explains to Asuna and Rinko that Kirito's brain was severely damaged from the attack and they are using the STL technology to restore it. He also reveals that the main focus of the Underworld experiment is to create a new, more advanced form of artificial intelligence.
Despite the experiment having proven successful, they note that by establishing the Church of Axiom inside Underworld, the AIs have managed to completely eliminate all kind of transgressions, including murder, from their community, and that they needed someone with years of experience in VRMMORPGs like Kirito to interact with them to develop them further.
Asuna deduces that Kikuoka's objective is to create AIs capable of murder for military purposes, and he confesses that all of his actions since the development of the NerveGear was created for the sake of this research, labeled "Project Alicization".
After checking on Kirito and informing her friends, Asuna is approached by Rinko, who formally apologizes for helping Kayaba during the SAO incident. Asuna replies that, while Kayaba can't be forgiven, she is thankful for the days she spent with Kirito inside Aincrad. November 18, Two years later, Kirito and Eugeo are now trainees at the North Centoria Imperial Sword Mastery Academy. The duo reflects on how they won in a swordsmanship tournament at the northern town of Zakkaria, then afterwards gained the requirement to enroll themselves into the academy.
Their plan is to graduate from the academy as top students and become Integrity Knights, allowing them access to Central Cathedral. Kirito spars with his mentor, Elite Swordswoman Sortiliena Serlut. Sortiliena laments that her sword skills are still unrefined, and asks Kirito to show her everything from his Aincrad style before her graduation. Kirito and Eugeo visit the garden to look at the zephyr flowers which Kirito is attempting to grow.
Eugeo anxiously asks Kirito whether he will return to his homeland if he regains his memories, but Kirito assures him that they will stick together to the end.
The next day, Kirito receives a black sword made from a branch of Gigas Cedar. While practicing with his new sword, Kirito accidentally slips and stains the uniform of Elite Swordsman First Seat Volo Levinteinn. Volo forgives the fact that Kirito is training on a rest day, but he points out the stain as an excuse to invite Kirito to spar as a "punishment".
November 25, Before the duel, Sortiliena warns Kirito that the secret of the Levinteinn family's power is imbuing their sword with the blood of their enemies, thus Volo's request for a match with real swords.
During the duel, Kirito manages to increase the power of his sword and scratches Volo's shirt before the match is interrupted by one of the instructors and declared a draw. Later at night, Kirito discovers that the zephyr flowers he was growing were destroyed by two classmates with a grudge against him.
As he laments, he is instructed by a voice to use healing arts to transfer life energy from the other flowers in the garden to restore them. The next day, having learned from Kirito's match, Sortiliena defeats Volo in combat and graduates as First Seat, and Kirito presents her with the zephyr flowers as a parting gift.
Later, Kirito and Eugeo are promoted to Elite Swordsmen. December 2, Eugeo and Kirito are now elite students of the academy. Humbert Zizek, Second seat among the elite students, challenges Eugeo to a duel which ends in a draw. Some days later, Kirito and Eugeo have a picnic with their pages, Ronye Arabel and Tiese Shtolienen.
Ronye and Tiese reveal that a fellow student, Humbert's page Frenica Szeski, is being abused by Humbert. Kirito and Eugeo confront Humbert and his classmate, Raios Antinous, who do not deny the accusations, but claim that they did not violate any rule. While alone with Eugeo, Tiese expresses her despair about someday being forced to marry a person like Humbert, and Eugeo comforts her.
December 9, Eugeo and Kirito realize that their pages are missing and Kirito leaves to look for them. Soon after, Frenica approaches Eugeo and informs him that the pages intend to confront Humbert for her sake, to stop his abuse of her.
Eugeo storms Raios and Humbert's room, where he finds Ronye and Tiese gagged and tied up on a bed. Knowing that the taboo code prevents Eugeo from interfering, Raios and Humbert prepare to rape the girls in front of him, until Eugeo decides to violate the code and cuts off Humbert's arm. In the process of violating the code, Eugeo has to fight against the seal in his right eye, which causes his eye to be destroyed.
Raios attempts to execute Eugeo but Kirito arrives and defends him. Kirito fights Raios, cutting off his arms, which leads to him glitching to death, while Humbert escapes. After the incident, an instructor restores Eugeo's eye. The next day both Kirito and Eugeo are handed over to an Integrity Knight and are surprised to discover the knight is none other than Alice.
December 16, Eugeo is certain that the knight in front of them is Alice, but she does not recognize him or Kirito and takes them into custody. Kirito and Eugeo break out from the prison using their high object control authority and proceed to the Central Cathedral, but Alice, having predicted their move, sends another Integrity Knight to intercept them.
In the real world, Asuna is introduced to the first prototype of an AI robot that is being developed at the Ocean Turtle. December 23, Eugeo and Kirito face off against an Integrity Knight named Eldrie after they run away from prison. Kirito and Eldrie start fighting but soon it is revealed that Eldrie has a Divine Weapon. Eugeo remembers who Eldrie really is; when Eugeo starts listing off different things the Knight has done, Eldrie starts screaming, saying that he has no such recollection of those memories.
He then falls to the ground, and an unknown purple crystal emerges from his forehead. When Eugeo tells Eldrie his mother's name, he starts crying, then another Integrity Knight comes and attacks Kirito and Eugeo. They both run towards a dead end, where a warp gate appears in front of them, taking them to a grand library. The woman who teleported them turns out to be the Cardinal System of that world, and knows that Kirito is from the real world.
She then goes on to explain the history of the VR world and who developed and created the Taboo Index. January 6, A flashback occurs to when the Administrator is losing her own memory space, and so gets a child to link their memory.
But this was a fatal mistake of the Administrator, because this means the child gets the same authority and power. This comes to the attention of the child which is now to be revealed as the cardinal of the great library and so, she attacks the Administrator. She flees to the one out of two places the Administrator doesn't have authority over, the great library.
She spends the last years thinking of a way to defeat the Administrator and finds Kirito and Eugeo in the process. She also explains how to get the Integrity Knight's memory back.
Thus, the Cardinal allies with Kirito and Eugeo to defeat the administrator and get back Alice. Part 2: Alicization Rising. January 13, Back to the Cathedral, Kirito and Eugeo retrieve their swords, just before being attacked by Deusolbert, one of the Integrity Knights.
After defeating the knight with Kirito's help, Eugeo recognizes him as the same knight who took Alice into custody eight years ago, and they discover that his memories prior to this event were erased by the administrator as well. Recognizing their prowess, Deusolbert reveals that multiple Integrity Knights are waiting for them at the Cathedral's 50th floor with orders to kill them at sight.
On the way there, Kirito and Eugeo discuss a strategy to deal with the knights when two young girls appear before them. January 20, The two girls introduce themselves as Linel and Fizel, two novices studying at the cathedral, but just as they approach Kirito and Eugeo, they stab them with poisoned daggers, revealing themselves as Integrity Knights. To prove their value to the other Knights, Linel and Fizel carry the immobilized Kirito and Eugeo all the way to the 50th floor, where Fanatio, vice-commander of the Integrity Knights, awaits them.
Upon arriving there, Kirito, revealing that he saw through their scheme and had taken measures to protect himself, uses the same daggers to restrain them, and confronts Fanatio alone until Eugeo recovers.
Eugeo then uses his "Perfect Weapon Control Arts" to immobilize the knights. January 27, With Eugeo's help, Kirito defeats Fanatio, leaving her critically wounded. To save her, Kirito uses one of the special daggers Cardinal entrusted to them, despite Cardinal's instruction to save the weapons for Alice and the Administrator. With Fanatio under Cardinal's care, the two take an elevator to the 80th floor, where Alice awaits them. Kirito confronts Alice to give Eugeo a chance to use the dagger on her, but amidst the battle, a hole is opened in the exterior wall and both Kirito and Alice get sucked through it, much to Eugeo's despair.
February 3, With Kirito and Alice dangling along the wall of the church, Alice reluctantly agrees to work with Kirito to climb up to floor 95 where they can re-enter. Kirito attempts to tell Alice about her true past and the truth about Administrator. After climbing up for a while, they encounter minions from Dark Territory who have been posing as statues along the higher levels. Kirito and Alice fight together to defeat them. Meanwhile, Eugeo proceeds up the church until he reaches a great bath on floor 90 and encounters Bercouli Synthesis One.
Eugeo confronts Bercouli Synthesis One and traps them both in ice using the Blue Rose Sword's full memory release. Eugeo activates the secondary effect of the sword which drains the life of all objects trapped within its ice. With Eugeo betting he has more life than Bercouli, he tries to explain to Bercouli he was brainwashed by Administrator and begs him to remember the Blue Rose Sword, only to discover it was Bercouli who slayed the dragon in the cave.
Suddenly, Prime Senator Chudelkin appears, petrifying Bercouli and capturing Eugeo. Meanwhile, Kirito and Alice take a rest before they continue climbing the wall, and Kirito convinces Alice to listen to his story, including the truth behind her past. February 17, Kirito recaps the events of Alicization so far to Alice. Summarizes the first 18 episodes. February 24, As Kirito explains the truth of the Underworld to Alice, and the truth behind Administrator and the Integrity Knights, Alice is convinced that Kirito is telling the truth.
With Alice now strongly suspicious of the Axiom Church, she vows to reject its authority, only to be stopped by the seal in her right eye. Alice struggles to finish her sentence, but by force of will manages to yell out the remainder of her sentence, causing her right eye to explode before she passes out.
Meanwhile, Eugeo wakes up to find himself on the th floor. Before he can attack Administrator, she awakens and puts Eugeo into a suggestive state and tricks him into dropping the protection of his Fluctlight's core. March 3, Alice wakes up to find herself carried up to floor Kirito initiates a tracking spell to locate Eugeo's sword, finding it in a frozen bath hall on floor 90, but Eugeo is nowhere to be seen.
To Alice's horror, she finds Bercouli in a petrified state and begins to cry. Bercouli momentarily wakes up and praises Alice for her ability to break the seal in her eye and pushes her to move forward with Kirito. Both Alice and Kirito proceed towards floor , crossing into a forbidden room meant for the Senators of the church, where they discover several humanoid figures. Once human, they are now trapped in pods, unable to move, and fed through tubes. Disgusted by the Pontifex's manipulation, Alice and Kirito encounter Prime Senator Chudelkin, but he escapes.
They chase him to a dead end on floor 99, and Eugeo Synthesis 32 descends from a hole in the ceiling leading to the th floor. Part 3: Alicization Uniting. March 10, With Alice watching, Kirito and Eugeo begin fighting with one another. During the fight Kirito tries to snap Eugeo out of his synthesized personality. Eventually during the fight, due to the synthesis ritual having been rushed and no memories removed, Eugeo manages to regain control of his mind.
He freezes both Alice and Kirito with the Blue Rose Sword and heads up to kill Administrator. Eugeo, pretending to still be under the influence of the piety module, allows Administrator to put him in a dazed state and to remove the module. While Chudelkin goes to inspect the results of the battle, Administrator attempts to resynthesize Eugeo, but fails.
Eugeo attempts to pierce Administrator only to hit a defensive shield. Metal cannot pierce her skin. Chudelkin gets ambushed by Kirito and Alice and the two force their way up to Administrator's room. The three fight Chudelkin, but he proves to be extremely skilled with the sacred arts, as he summons a fire element monster resembling himself, which he calls the Genie.
March 17, Kirito, Alice, and Eugeo find themselves overwhelmed by the Genie until Kirito attacks Chudelkin directly. Chudelkin is swiftly defeated by Kirito after a sudden spike in his power through the incarnate arts, which temporarily changed his garments to those of his Aincrad days.
This allows Administrator to understand Kirito is not from Underworld, but outside the virtual reality. After some conversation, Administrator summons a creature made of swords, which she calls Sword Golem. Kirito, Alice, and Eugeo find themselves unable to fight against it until Charlotte, the observation unit from Cardinal, changes into a giant spider and holds off the Golem.
Eugeo is given instructions to stab the dagger into the hole in the floor. After doing as instructed, a portal opens and Cardinal appears and incapacitates the Golem with a lightning strike, heals Kirito and Alice, and mourns Charlotte's death. March 24, With the appearance of Cardinal, Administrator severs the outside link to the world and places floor of the Axiom church into a dark void.
Administrator explains that the source of all the divine swords that make up the Golem are from converted human units in the human empire, and the source of its life is the Piety module.
Her plan to combat the Dark Territory is to create more Sword Golems from roughly half of the human empire's population. Cardinal proposes to make a deal with Administrator: Cardinal's life for the freedom of Kirito, Alice, and Eugeo.
Administrator accepts and begins to relentlessly strike Cardinal with lightning. Shortly before her death, Cardinal grants Eugeo his wish to be fused into his sword. With Eugeo now in the form of a sword, he shatters the golem's Piety module, attacks administrator and cuts off her arm, but Administrator breaks Eugeo in half. March 31, With Eugeo dying and Alice unconscious, Kirito fights against Administrator alone. She shocks him by using SAO Sword Skills, stating there is nothing about the system she does not know.
The bisected, but human, Eugeo begs him to stand and uses his remaining life and blood to temporarily reform the Blue Rose Sword, which is made of crystal. Dual-wielding, Kirito loses his right arm but cuts off Administrator's remaining arm and deals critical damage. Administrator decides to exit the Underworld and summons the system console, but Chudelkin suddenly regains consciousness and latches on to Administrator, begging her to not leave him. With lingering fire elements still active, Chudelkin and Administrator catch fire, killing them both.
Eugeo says his goodbye to Kirito and dies with young Alice's memory. Kirito walks over to the system console and initiates a communication line to the real world where he discovers the Ocean Turtle is under attack. Kikuoka instructs Kirito to take Alice to the World's End Altar in the Dark Territory before getting cut off.
Kirito then loses consciousness from fluctlight damage as the attackers shut the power off at Rath, causing a surge that strikes his comatose body. Part 4: Alicization Invading. A recap episode summarizing the first 24 episodes. October 13, [f]. January 19, . A few months have passed since the fall of Administrator.
After the events of the first season, the energy surge in the Ocean Turtle has damaged Kirito's Fluctlight, causing him to become catatonic, barely reacting to outside stimuli. Fearing for Kirito's safety and life, as he is known to be one of the individuals who defeated Administrator, Alice has taken him back to Rulid Village by riding Amayori, her dragon companion.
Alice has since built a log cabin and settled in with Kirito outside of Rulid, where she looks after him every day. Because she is still deemed a criminal, she is not allowed to live within the village. Despite this, she is regularly visited by Selka, her younger sister, and frequently employed to cut down particularly tough trees by Barbossa, a self-centered landowner who, along with his tree cutters, looks down on Alice.
Meanwhile, the Integrity Knights learned from Bercouli, who was informed by Alice, about the Administrator's monstrous plan to convert half of the Human Empire into mindless, sword-shaped weapons to defend against the Dark Territory. They have since been working to rebuild their ranks and retrain the army of the human empire to prepare for the coming invasion from the Dark Territory. At the end of the day, Alice is visited by Eldrie Synthesis 31, who offers to execute Kirito and so Alice can return to the Integrity Knights.
Alice refuses, forcing Eldrie to leave. That night, Kirito wakes in a panic. Though still suffering from fluctlight damage, he has sensed danger in Rulid, and Alice spots an orange glow and smoke coming from Rulid. With Rulid under attack by goblins and orcs, Alice quickly equips her armor, but conceals it beneath her clothes and flies to the village on Amayori. She finds a small group of villagers attempting fight off the goblins while the remaining villagers stand back preparing to mount a defence.
Alice attempts to evacuate them, but they refuse to defy the orders of the guards of the village. Left with no choice, Alice reveals to the villagers her identity as an Integrity Knight and orders the villagers to evacuate, much to Barbossa's disgust.
With newfound determination, her eye regenerates by force of will and she swiftly defeats the invasion. Meanwhile, in the real world, Gabriel Miller and his team approach Rath on a submarine. He and his invasion force have taken control of the main control room of Ocean Turtle but are currently locked out.
Asuna, Kikuoka, and the remaining staff at Rath get a reading on their current situation and decide their next course of action is to retake control of Ocean Turtle and prevent A. E from falling into enemy hands. October 27, With GlowGen Defense Systems now in control of the main control room, they find that the computer system is locked down tight and that forcing their way into the sub control room or the lightcube cluster is not a viable option.
Commander Gabriel Miller flashes back to his login session in GGO where his team battled against Kirito. Gabriel logs out of his session to find himself back at his office at Glowgen Defense Systems, where he serves as CTO. Anime Episodes Anime Information.

Adaptation of light novels is quite common these days; not just in the case of anime but in the world of gaming as well. It has been almost 5 years since its last season was released, which is fairly a long time for a sequel. But even then, right after the second season came to an end, most fans knew that eventually there will be a whole new season.
After this 5 year hiatus, the creators had a whole lot of source material in their hand and thus, they gave us a whole new 2-cour season with 24 episodes. The first episode is more of a prologue that gives a general introduction of the entire season and is twice the length of other episodes. Season 3 pretty much gives you the best of both of these worlds and despite a few flaws, the outcome is a very compelling experience for most viewers.
To form a more cohesive narrative, this season makes an attempt to make ties between the Gun Gale Online Arc from the second season and the Aifheim Arc from season one. The first half of this season primarily focuses on having consistent pacing along with some character development. But in the second half, it follows its old trend of forward-time-jumps and battle scenes that explain more about the world the main protagonist had found himself in.
During this span, the anime released a total of 24 episodes with each one of them being 24 minutes long, except for the first one. If you want to know more about the future of the anime, then you should refer to our anime preview of Sword Art Online Season 4. He sets out on a whole new quest with his new friends Eugeo and Alice and the true meaning of this new world is kept hidden. Later, it is revealed that Kirito is actually working as a beta tester in the real world for a fourth generation Fulldive technology is a renowned company known by the name of Raft.
Which means that a span of many years in the virtual world would just be a few hours in the real world. After this introduction, Death Gun comes back and it is revealed that the game Sword Art Online never really came to an end.
Kirito now finds himself stuck in the Underworld with barely any memories of how he can get out of there. This is when the project A. E Artificial Labile Intelligent Cybernated Existence is introduced and the true intentions of Rath are introduced. Kirito slowly starts to realize why he was brought into the Underworld in the first place and also discovers the truth behind the project Alicization. It is slowly revealed that all of this is more or less of an experiment performed by Rath just to convince the peace-loving military forces that AI can be used to their advantage if one manages to find a way to do so.
The story is very well thought out and progresses rather slowly. A lot of questions arise from the first few episodes itself but very slowly, all of these are answered. Also, certain things that may seem completely irrelevant and mundane later fall into place and make a lot more sense.
Even when it comes to the fight scenes , there is a lot of pain and bloodshed in them which just makes the overall plot much darker. A lot of focus also goes into the world building and several links are subtly made to the previous ones. This is the reason why one should know all about the previous seasons before watching this one. Another reason why the story of this season is really different from the other two is because of its mature themes that explore the idea of humans trying to be God by taking A.
I way too far. If you expect a lot of action scenes from this, then you will probably be disappointed as this season has more dialogues and lesser battle scenes. The pseudo-science discussions can be a little boring for some people but for others who enjoy science fiction , this season will turn out to be the best. The main focus goes on a character named Eugeo in this season while Kirito just seems to tag along.
His character and his attitude towards other humans is continuously changing throughout the series and as a viewer, even your opinion about the society he lives in fluctuates according to what he thinks about it. Not only is the animation style much better than the first two seasons but even the imaginative virtual world has been designed to its fullest potential.
A lot of detailing has also gone into the designs of the characters and also their expressions, which reflect their emotions in the best possible way. The character development of the antagonist was not really up to the mark but the mannerisms of the character and also the dialogues had the perfect villainous feel. The soundtracks are not too impressive and are in fact too underwhelming compared to the previous seasons. Overall, like most viewers, you will probably be slightly annoyed because of the flaws of this season but apart from that, it is enough to excite you for the future of the anime as it shows its true potential.
On a scale of 1 to 10, I would give this season a weak 8 in the hope that it will continue the momentum that it is starting to build. Read More: Aggretsuko Season 2 Review.
