This October, fans will return to the world of Sword Art Online once again to finish out the Alicization arc with the second part of the third season’s “War Of Underworld”. The trailer, showing off a catatonic Kirito and an eye patch wearing Alice, seems to ratchet up the stakes even higher as the events of the previous episodes come together. Though the trailer had been released earlier, this release marks the first time some convenient English subs have been added to let fans know exactly what the characters are saying if they’re not fluent in Japanese or have a translator at the ready.The Official Twitter Account for Sword Art Online shared the first English subbed trailer for the second half of the third season, War of Underworld:
What appears to make this second half so different is that Kirito’s attempt at making contact with the outside world has seemingly left him in a catatonic state, leaving the duties of the main protagonist to Alice. Whether or not the former “main character” will manage to wake up later on in the second half of the third season is yet to be seen, but we’re sure the former “black swordsman” will be waking up once again for more virtual exploits.
Sword Art Online was originally created by Kawahara Reki with illustrations provided by abec for ASCII Media Works’ Dengeki Bunko line in 2009. The series follows a boy named Kirito after he and thousands of gamers get trapped in a virtual reality video game known as Sword Art Online. The gamers must band together to defeat the game’s final level to escape, but Kirito and his guild learn there is more behind their prison than they were originally told.
