In the near future, a completely new top-notch technology allowed people to immerse their consciousness into the game thanks to a helmet, able to simulate their five senses. It caused the appearance of numerous video games, that have used this technology. Sword Art Online was the most popular among them with over 10,000 players who have joined the game shortly after its launch. However, afterwards they've discovered that they're unable to log out. The game's creator, Akihiko Kayaba, announced that each player must cope all 100 levels of the game in order to release and become free. Otherwise, they will die in the real world, if they decide to disconnect themselves from the helmets. As a result, thousands of people found themselves trapped inside the virtual reality.

A storyline focuses on the adventures of Kazuto "Kirito" Kirigaya, who took a part in beta testing of the game. Thanks to his advantage, as the experienced beta tester, Kirito was able to isolate himself from other players in order to play the game alone. However, in order to leave Aincrad, Kirito should cooperate with other gamers. Some of them are allies. At the same time, others are enemies, such as Asuna Yuuki, who heads a group intending to escape the game. Kirito has to accept this new reality, find out the way to escape, as well as maintain his relationship with Asuna, whom he subsequently married. Together they would discover a secret ID, thanks to which they obtain an opportunity to quit the game.

Tokyo MX is yet to decide will Sword Art Online be renewed for a next season or canceled. Stay tuned for updates. We'll keep you informed on the subject!
