War in isekai world. Troubles with loging out. Threats that can destroy world. Worth checking out because both are branches of main series and could have been omitted.

Story is about war that is brewing. Lot of drama that is tied to war: suffering, sadness etc There is good amount of interactions between both sides of conflict. Soldiers of opposite side are likeable even though they arent humans.

Both of these seasons are the weakest season of absolutely great shows... if you enjoy those shows and the characters of those shows. Basically, both of these seasons are "world building" seasons.

SAO Alicization War of Underworld and Gate are very similar in style. Their plots seem very similar while at the same time they take different approaches. Gate has a way that immerses the protagonists in a fantasy world, and they enter with their physical body. However Alicization sticks to SAO's roots and the Main Characters enter virtually. They're both great Animes.
