Aside from Asuna’s glorious nipple, the rental version of the Sword Art Online movie has also confirmed that a new entry in the series is definitely on the way, with the teaser after the end of the movie hinting at the potential adaptation of the “Alicization” arc.

Text appears on-screen before the start of the movie on the rental version (something that was not present in the theatrical version) stating that the post-credits scene is a teaser for a new Sword Art Online work:

“SAO will return” being stated at the end of the movie was already previously acknowledged:

Many have suspected the “Alicization” arc to be the focus of this new work since the after-credits scene features a character saying “welcome to Rath” (Rath being an integral company in the arc):

    • Oh please, a girl who played a gun game not finding the gun she fears most out the front while literally looking for a handgun to tutor jesus-kun is a shit character with default vagina exclusive for jesus-kun like the rest of the “heroines” of SAO.

  • The Alicization arc should be possible in 24 episodes if they rush a little and cut some irrelevant to the plot details.

    Not to mention Alicization has been complete as an arc for a little while now so material is no problem.

  • I’m quite pleased to hear this.

    Partly because I thought SAO was a decent series but mostly because I want to see the bitter raging tears of the “Popular Now It Sucks” crowd flow like the sweetest wine.

    • To say that it starts slow, would be the understatement of the century. They need four novels to cut down a tree, climb a tower and defeat a boss. Super slow, super boring. After that it gets a little better. A lot depends on the adaptation here. They have to cut out a lot.

      • To summarize what you said. While its actually quite good its just so slow that it may make viewers get impatient and lose interest unless they cut the boring stuff and get right into the good parts

  • Why are SAO fanboys so triggered by the most slightest criticism of their precious thing? Give me one good thing about SAO plot and writing, the only good thing about SAO is its art style and creativity, but what matters the most is the plot and the writing, Kirito is able to open up a console and he has the entire game code in his hands, what does he do? He creates an item for Asuka, does he ever try making the exit button function well? OF COURSE NOT, SO WHY DOESN’T HE DO THAT, 3000 OR MORE PEOPLE ARE STUCK AND RISKING THEIR LIVES, AND THIS MORON BARELY GIVES A SHIT.

  • How is this still a thing? SAO is a masturbatory anime for the lowest denominator of anime. It showcases the male fantasy invoked by asuna’s shitty default waifu settings, sinon’s “strong but fragile that needs protecting” crap that needs the default protagonist to make her fully function and the rest of the female cast that is either token or completely forgettable. Wanna challenge that? Tell me more about liz: how was she after all of it, what did she do, does she have a personality, a motivation aside from the dick the story shoves up on her.. anything at all. Tell me.

    World building is shit so you’d think character development would be a good place to start, right? Haha, fuck that and fuck you! Hell, even the supposed new heroine of GGO went weak waifu for a very dumb and a very small reason. Everything is handed to the protagonist that every win feels like what you expect which turns the fight scenes the only draw of the series and how they tell it like a sports play by play. How is this good? How is this deserving than Spice and Wolf? How many dumb people you need to herd to get quality shows?

    I honestly never saw any other shitty anime that is as popular as this. Only goes to show that you don’t need a good writer for any medium. Just play to whatever the target audience like and it’ll be just fine.

      • Truly? Do tell me what’s good about it. I’m reserving the action scenes out so go right ahead and tell me what’s so enchanting about this anime.

        I’ve had my patience even on the GGO arc but episode 9 reared the ugly head of the story bending over characters because it needs to stroke the protagonist’s penis. I’ve had a full first season of seeing that so go right on ahead and prove me the fuck wrong oh enlightened one.

  • how is this news?

    dengeki already announced this shit months ago.

    at the premiere of Ordinal Scale in LA, the producers, reki kawahara and the editor all already confirmed that they will continue to make more SAO.

    • Could the autistic person who downvoted me point me in the direction of the next arc after Alicization. Thanks.

      Because there’s nothing out in Japan in Light novel format that covers another arc and the web novel concluded there too.

  • Good.
    With “joe pee pee maltin’s play of chairs”, that baby murdering garbage insult to the Fantasy Genre soon to FINALLY stop polluting the airwaves with its worthless black hearted cynicism for good…

    … it is High-Time for Asian Mediato show The World how Real, *Proper*, *Heroic* Fantasy is *Really* Done. 🙂

  • LOL @ the triggered SAO Fanboys downvoting anything that sounds critical.

    SAO is shit. If you lik SAO, I automatically assume you are a low IQ idiot and borderline retarded.

    Face the truth. The author is a lazy piece of shit who feels nothing but contempt for anime, anime fans or human beings in general. YOU consume his material. So not only are you subhuman cognitively, but also with regards to anything else.

    Congratulations. Please kill yourselves. Clean up the gene-pool. The world will advance faster if you SAO-Fans stop hindering everyone.

  • Swort art online was the slowest moving boring
    plot ever!

    It was made to draw attention to the dangers of on-line MMO games. A sad excuse for an Anime series.

    It loses focus a lot. And the art style is cheap and shitty looking. Anime studios are begging for substance, they will make series based on thin air if they must.

    They should pay for the rights of good novels and base series on them.

    Anyway this Sword art was plain raw sewage. each episode achived very little and progressed at a snails pace.

    It also tried to make you accept that lonely anti-social losers can save the day and get the girl. -which is total nonsence.

    no serious MMO Player has a good social life.

    This studio should should spend its time and money on anything but this!!!

    Laters virgins.

    • or not skip parts. If you read the lns you see he does shit outside the game he isn’t just a mmo gaming nerd. Honestly the anime focused to much on the online only part and ignored most of the non ingame time.
