Rushing to the hospital, Kazuto is attacked by an injured Sugou with a knife in the parking area. Kazuto disarms him and, considering Sugou's actions, ultimately spares his life. Kazuto finally meets with Asuna, and they have a tearful reunion. On May 16, 2025, Kazuto and Asuna attend a special school for students who were trapped in SAO. As they have lunch, Kazuto reveals Sugou was captured by the police after their fight and his crimes were exposed by one of his employees. The 300 players that were trapped by Sugou are released, but his experiments shock the public. Later, Asuna, Kazuto, and Suguha head to Andrew's bar, along with Liz/Rika Shinozaki, Silica/Keiko Ayano, Yolko, Kains, Sasha, Yulier, Thinker, Klein/Ryoutarou Tsuboi, and his guild, where they finally have a proper celebration for clearing SAO and ALO. The World Seed is uploaded to the Internet, which revives the virtual reality gaming genre. (Source: Wikipedia)
