SAO Progressive Movie ‘Scherzo of Deep Night’ Trailer Details

It was such an emotional moment to witness the return of Asuna and Kirito to the Sword Art Online franchise. The couple starred in the 2012 animated series with the same title. This time around, they will face a new rampaging beast in the fourth volume of Sword Art Online.

The plot will follow Kirito and Asuna as they enter the fifth floor of Aincrad, the online VR game (deadly, by the way). However, the two struggle to get past the fourth floor in order to get to the fifth.

Kirito and Asuna are currently working on their game progression and trying to pass floors 4 and 5. Both players will also be returning for at least 3 more movie sequels as there are 8 floors in total.

SAO sequels

SAO’s progressive film “Scherzo of Deep Night” officially opened in theaters across Japan on October 22, and fans expect it to be released in all countries soon. The previous film “Aria of a Starless Night” hit theaters in October 2021, so we’ll probably be able to watch the sequel very soon.

The anime is based on the series of novels written by Reki Kawahara between 2002 and 2008. Concluding the latest novel of 2020, there are a total of 25 novels about the ‘SAO’ universe so far.

As for the official number of episodes and movies, there are a total of 25 episodes in the first season of this anime series. Sword Art Online returned in 2014 with another 24 episodes. Apart from the original two seasons of the series, there was also a spin-off series titled “Sword Art Online Alternative: Gun Gale Game”, which was released in 2018.

Additionally, “Sword Art Online: Alicization” ran from 2018 to 2020, adding another 47 episodes to the franchise.

About Sword Art Online

Sword Art Online (SAO) is an anime series that tells the story of Kirito who loves VR games. What he doesn’t know is that he is set to stay in the so-called “Isekai”, an alternate universe.

Spoiler alert: We will now discuss the basic plot of “Sword Art Online”. The anime series mainly shows the world of Aincrad, which is also the setting of the first novel. The first episode begins with 10,000 SAO players logging into the VR game at the same time.

Long story short, all 100 levels of Aincrad Arc must be cleared. It quickly becomes mission impossible, except for Kirito and Asuna, who find out who the final level 100 boss is.

Things seem to go smoothly as Kirito battles the ultimate enemy, but Asuna is captured. The rest of the plot continues in Season 2, as Kirito tries to save Asuna. If you like RPGs, this anime will blow your mind!
