Synopsis

Despite the defeat of Quinella—the pontifex of the Axiom Church—things have not seemed to calm down yet. Upon contacting the real world, Kazuto "Kirito" Kirigaya finds out that the Ocean Turtle—a mega-float controlled by Rath—was raided. Due to a sudden short-circuit caused by the raiders, Kirito's fluctlight is damaged, leaving him comatose. Feeling insecure about the people at the Axiom Church, Alice brings the unconscious Kirito back to their hometown—Rulid Village, disregarding her banishment due to an unabsolved crime. Now, Alice is living an ordinary and peaceful life close by the village, wishing for Kirito to wake up.

However, tragedy strikes when Alice notices that the Dark Territory has already started to invade the Human Empire. Reassuming her previous alias, Alice Synthesis Thirty, she promises to defeat the Dark Territory in order to defend the world that Kirito and Eugeo worked so hard to protect.

Jan 14, 2024
Building off of the previous season, Alicization - War of Underworld tells a story just as good, possibly better, than Alicization. One of the major reasons why this season is good is that we actually see other characters display how powerful they can be, all because of one reason : Kirito is not the centre of attention anymore.

Alice is a great character to witness the story from the point of view of : she is largely unbiased in her opinion towards Kirito apart from the fact that, for her, he is a childhood friend, and nothing more. She herself is a great warrior, but ...

Mixed Feelings
Spoiler-less, TL;DR, fast, simple, and easy-to-digest review:

War, War never changes..., or does it?

5/10

Animation? Good (++)
While they maintained the animation quality from the previous season (which is top notch in the series btw), there are some... budget cuts. Animation downgraded a bit by relying on sone 2.5 D elements and same animation of multiple soldiers in a huge battlefield. IK its hard to animate this by hand but can you make it not noticeable?

Characters? Ok (+)

*No spoilers*

Sword Art Online is an anime known for not being great, but this is by far the worst SAO has ever been. From consistent plot holes and contradictions to entire episode long exposition dumps, this anime hardly does anything right or has any redeeming qualities. There is so much wrong with this anime, even by SAO standards, it is actually a drag to get through.

Story: 1/10
The story has always been the worst part of SAO, but this time its actually irredeemable. There are plot holes everywhere you look and the story contradicts itself multiple times. Also, despite trying to be a war, both ...
