Sword Art Online: Progressive Release Date, Preview, Cast, and Other Details: The official Twitter account of Sword Art Online just revealed the name and the release date of the upcoming movie. The tweet also featured a new video of the movie. Sword Art Online Progressive will take fans back to Aincard and will tell you the details of SAO Floor by Floor without any timeskips. A new key visual was also released for the upcoming movie.
It is still canon to the main story rather than a reboot. The boss fight of Sword Art Online Season 1 Ep2 was adapted from progressive novel only. This anime will focus on Kirito and Asuna as the Main characters, and both will get their narrative. The announcement of the anime adaptation was made just after the finale of SAO Alicization. Sword Art Online: Progressive novel was launched in 2012. Reki Kawahara himself writes the book.
Sword Art Online: Progressive Plot
The series will focus on the initial adventures of Asuna and Kirito in Aincard. The trailer already showed that the series would Asuna her perspective. Sword Art Online Progressive can be watched separately from the main Sword Art Online series as long as they give the context of season 1.
And one thing more is that the main Sword, Art Online, is still not finished. The arc following the Alicization arc will be Unital Arc. The decision to adopt Progressive now is excellent as some essential characters from Progressive are theirs in Unital. Sword Art Online Progressive is like one volume per Floor kind of thing.
Sword Art Online: Progressive
Sword Art Online Progressive is the anime that all the initial anime watchers wanted. The only thing that remains is to see how the studio will adapt the novel. It is perfect for all the fans who have lost interest in Sword Art Online due to emotional detachment because they couldn't connect to the show. All the fans were thinking that they will get the Moon Cradle series, but this is just as big. One more concern is that this makes Alicization being rushed.
Now, the main series of Sword Art Online is still hanging. Alicization season is final since Unital Ring is still in the works, so a new season will come out after that. We don’t know what will come after this and when will it come, but a next season will come. The production house will change for sure.
