Scherzo from Deep Night is the continuation of Sword Art Online the Movie -Progressive- Aria of a Starless Night (2021), available to stream now on Crunchyroll.com. The film follows the protagonist Asuna as she continues her journey through the virtual reality game of death, with “Game Over” meaning death in the real world.
The anime franchise is based on the light novel series Sword Art Online by Dengeki Bunko Novel Grand Prize winner Reki Kawahara (published by Dengeki Bunko), chronicling the adventures of Kirito and his exploits as a player Sword Art Online, a next-generation VRMMORPG (Virtual Reality Massive Multiplayer Online Role-Playing Game). Since the release of Volume One in April 2009, the books have surpassed 30 million copies sold worldwide. Sword art online progressive is a reboot series penned by Kawahara that offers a deeper dive into where it all began: the second floor of Aincrad.
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 in the game world. Asuna, having cleared the first floor of Aincrad’s floating iron castle, joined Kirito and continued her journey to reach the top floor. With the assistance of information broker Argo, the floor cleanup seemed to be progressing smoothly, but…
A conflict erupts between two major guilds that should work together – top player groups ALS (The Aincrad Liberation Squad) and DKB (The Dragon Knights Brigade). Meanwhile, a mysterious figure exists behind the scenes pulling the strings…
In a dangerous death throes there is an attack different from the threat that will involve Asuna and Kirito…!
