Sword Art Online: Progressive Anime Plans Revealed1.Sword Art Online: Progressive (Movie)

Sometime in 2021

Sword Art Online is an Adventure fiction anime about protagonist Kazuto Kirigaya also known as “Kirito” and Asuna Yuuki as they play through various virtual reality role-playing games. It all started when Kazuto Kirigaya was looking forward to a RPG(role-playing game) that was coming out called “Sword Art Online” on NerveGear. A NerveGear is a gaming system that is more like the VR system that we have today but more advanced. Once the game was released many people were ready to play the game but there were few catches. The first catch is that  you can’t leave the game until the whole game is complete and secondly if you die in the game you die in real life. This upcoming movie is going back to season one of Sword Art Online but, instead of focusing on Kazuto Kirigaya it will be focused on Asuna Yuuki and her perspective on how everything started.
