Might watch it. I remember thinking AW had a lot of potential but it was brought down by it's two leads.

Fair enough. I agree with that, plus i like it better when i get to watch it peice by peice in episode form or have the option to binge watch it and take a break after each episode and not be right in the middle of a story line or anything


at least we get to hear the battle theme in action again, 1 of my favorites :)



So awesome and so well done, i have it saved on my phone lol

hard to deliver a full length story on a movie adaptation especially on anime,
i guess its fine since its original story but i still want a continue to the show
thats not just a side story.
also i want to see more of the show characters and 1 movie just isnt enough.

More like October 2016 by the time I get to see it released on blu-ray.

Pirated of course.

I'm excited but upset it's a movie. The story is probably going to be 'let's kill big bad guy' and done.

I'd rather a season, common A-1!


A-1 isn't Sunrise even though they spun off from them and thank god for that.

Sunrise Studio 8 is busy with yet another Love Live so it's a miracle they agreed to make a movie at least.


I'm still going with my theory that the reason this got made is because they agree to allow it to be an anime original and a movie thus fulfilling the apparent conditions necessary for Sunrise to do any actual work post 2013. TV anime is overrated as a medium and prone to schedule hangups and skullduggery so I almost prefer it this way. The idea of Kuroyukihime in movie quality animation strikes me as an acceptable one.

It was announced as original by Reki Kawahara from the start. Do you even get that it's a stupid thing to maker anime-original S2 than you have a lot of LN volumes to adapt? So I don't get people who are surprised it's a movie.

it's a little of a dissapointment to me. i thought it will be a tv series.
but tbh, that PV looks awsome and interesting.

I also want a season 2, but those film graphics! I hope this gets a North American theater release. get on that, Viz!

Oh Gowd... I just hope the protagonist has matured and everything about the anime is fine for me :3

Now that the movie of Accel World has been announced. It's just a matter of time for the SAO movie to get a release date xD...God..I'm going to be old by the time SAO III comes out.

Well, I'm happy, 'cause if we remember that SAO II came after the movie, then still 've hope for a second season to come!! XD
Just hope that movie don´t be like SAO's one... with pieces of the first season just to "remember" about.

If you're talking about SAO Extra Edition, that's more of a Special instead of a Movie since it's broadcasted on TV as a New Year's special, and it's basically just a mix of recap and an OVA. There is also a SAO movie coming along with this Accel World movie though, in case you missed it and I'm quite sure that will be leading up to SAO III lol but for Accel World, it might take a while since Sunrise is currently busy printing money with Love Live! and Gundam franchise these last few years.


Yeah, that's exactally the one i were talking about, the SAO Extra Edition. Plus, i didn't knew it was an new year's special. I just saw that was about SAO, so i downloaded to watch it. As well as i didn't knew about this SAO movie that's comming along with the Accel World's one. So, thank you for the great news!! =D
