Sword Art Online – Progressive Trailer Revealed
So in AnimeJapan 2021 a lot of announcements about different anime took place. We also got more information and trailers of some of the upcoming anime and movies. On the movie’s side, Sword Art Online was certainly the name. I had my eye out for Sword Art Online: Progressive movie adaptation from the moment I heard about the plot of its LN. So without any further ado,
What do we know about the movie?
Sword Art Online: Progressive is a retelling of the Aincrad arc of the series in a more detailed way and this once it is from Asuna’s perspective rather than Kirito. Progressive will focus more on Kirito and Asuna and is way slower than the original Aincrad arc, in a good way of course. I have said this many times, AIncrad arc is the best arc in Sword Art Online after that, the series died. If the Aincrad arc continues for a 100 episode, I will watch the 100 episodes happily.
That is exactly what we are getting in Progressive. A more focused and more in-depth Aincrad arc. I know that 1 Light Novel focuses on 1 Floor of Aincrad meaning if the author continues the series, it will last 100 volumes. Now, I was to give you an estimate of how much content a volume has, well 3-4 volumes are more than enough for a 12 episode anime. So a movie will cover 1 or 2 volumes at most. We will see more of the original Sword Art Online team and we will also get new characters who strive to live in Aincrad.
The movie is set to release in Japanese Theatres in Fall 2021 so it will be around march for the movie to release in other countries and around May or June for Blu Ray and proper online releases. I am really excited about this movie (I really do hope I get to watch it in theatres) because I really love the Aincrad arc. I really hope that the movie is as good as I have heard because more Aincrad arc is always good. We will get to see Asuna and Kirito grow closer slowly and step by step rather than in a span of few episodes like the anime. Here’s to hoping that the movie is successful and they do more movies like this or even an anime series adapting the Progressive LN will do.
So this is all I have for now. You can check out the movie trailer here. It is from Asuna’s perspective of course and she is the one narrating it. We of course get to see some new scenes that were not in the original anime and it looks like the path to the floor boss is rather long and complicated this once unlike the anime. I hope you liked the article. Let me know down in the comments what you think about the trailer. As always, feel free to browse the site for more of my articles and the awesome art collection we have. With that being said, See ya!!
