>Alicization premiere scheduled for September 15 at Madman Anime Festival in Melbourne, Australia. It will be a 60 minute screening of the first episode.
Yes you read that correctly, the singular episode and season opener is one hour long.
Is it ok to be hype yet?

Alicization was written before Fate/Stay Night, so if anything Saber is an Alice clone

you should know the sao web novel was well into alicization before the original fate vn released

>>176762659
Fuck off stop defending SAO
>>
>>176762659
Not really. While the web novel started before Fate, Alicization didn't start until 2005 which was after Fate came out. It's possible Kawahara had Alice's design in mind before Fate came out but we would never know.

This the blodiest arc of SAO, I don't think that they will leave all the violence.

>The true mary sue
>>
>>176763499
An attempt was made to create a credible villain, yet no one cares about her.
>>
>>176763663
Er, she's pretty popular. Much more than the generic American bad guy #51574 of the second half anyway.
>>
>>176763526
Most of it will probably come out fine. The series is a cash cow so studio can afford to take a few more risks than others. Only the more explicit scenes will get the black shadow/buy the BD treatment.
>>176763633
Indeed. The Progressive manga version of Asuna really the best at everything, even more so than Kirito at times.
>>
>>176763093
aren't those only the games and the isekai?
>>
>>176763526
The previous seasons were pretty bloody already, just without showing actual blood itself.
>>
>>176763663
Her character really doesn't have any depth. She's just an evil sadistic psycho who sleeps most of the time and wakes up to fight Kirito. They were setting up some interesting parallels between her and Alice early on, and seemed to be going for a "nihilism+power+loneliness corrupts" angle, but then just went nope, she was worst than Hitler even before becoming Admin. All she wants is power so she can make everyone miserable for no reason. Boring. There's a reason why they said that even if the Dark Territory killed everyone, it was still better Quesadilla's rule.
>>
>>176763761
Shes even worse in the LN too if i remember correctly.
>>
>>176763746
Oh yeah, those boring guys.

They were a sorry lot, the only good one was PoH.
>>
>>176763863
Nah, the Progresive manga made she much more of a Mary Sue by giving her all the spotlights and making Kirito her sidekick.
>>
>>176763774
The only part of the series that can really be called an Isekai is Alicization which is a really good arc but it has it's own share of problems. When it comes to the games, the only good ones are the two Hollow ones. Progressive (both the novel and manga) are also great.
>>176763863
She's fine in the light novel. Volume 4, the most recent translated one, dedicated half of the story to showing us how much she really needed Kirito's help. She actually develops a little thanks to what happens to her.
>>
>>176763526
Can't wait to see Asuna being impaled by a fucking lance and continue to figth Mike nothing happened.
Will be awesome.
>>
>>176763832
>she was worst than Hitler even before becoming Admin
Nah, before she became Admin, she was at worst a greedy queen. She's ultimately a victim of her own ambition and thanatophobia.
>>
>>176762229
1 hour as in 40 minute double ep feature? Or full 60 minute runtime?
>>
>>176764043
Double episode like the pilot episode of UBW, I assume.
>>
>>176764000
She was experimenting on people before becoming a God. As a child, she tortured and killed animals. As an adult, she was the first one to figure out how to absorb another living thing's life force (XP), the first one to apply magic towards killing others, and it's implied that she was already ridiculously powerful before merging with CARDINAL because she'd personally killed hundred of thousands to get their power. She's real bad.
>>
>>176764043
Probably closer to like 50 min runtime.
>>
>>176764071
Probably that way because the only thing that literally everyone remembers about it is the boring beginning that was immediately invalidated a chapter later.
>>
>>176764000
Pretty much Part 1 Dio, except she will be even more of a pussy on Part 3.
>>
>>176762454
She's a Seibah only when her armor is still white. The gold armor sets her apart enough.
>>
>>176764086
>she tortured and killed animals
Want said she tortured them. Just killed them for easy exp, which yes, for her setting would certainly make hey a sociopath, but not all sociopaths become literally Hitler.
>the first one to apply magic towards killing others
Only because her dad, the village chief, gave her the super special sacred task of researching sacred arts.

>she'd personally killed hundred of thousands to get their power
Hundreds of thousands of animals and monsters, maybe (tho exp is gained thru more than just killing in this world), as before becoming a god (and learning her world was fake anyways) she was still unable to kill people.
>>
>>176763774
They're the only good games, to be honest.
>>
Why is Kirito looking more of a fuckboi than usual?
>>
Reminder that the reason why FranXX looked like complete shit at times is because A-1 was saving up all their budget for this.
>>
>>176764264
It's fujobait. It's one of the reasons that people hate Alicization despite it being slightly better than Aincrad.

Kirito's only good appearance was his SAO and first ALO look.
>>
>>176764273
Franks was already shit though. I dropped that quickly when it became apparent that it was not going to be much of a mecha anime.

I already watched it in the form of the Aincrad arc, boring romances are boring.
>>
>>176764273
And nothing of value was lost.

I would say the budget allocation was on point.

>>176764460
Before that happens, I'm sure the shippers will have enough content needed to ignore that and the fact that he loved the original Alice.
>>
>>176762229
>60 minute screening of the first episode
I hope that 1 hour is purely Underworld prologue only, just to see how animeonlyfags react.

>>176764317
I miss the slicked back hair but his fairy avatar isn't bad. The fur collar is nice when it isn't drawn poorly.

Say what you want about all-black designs but his ALO and onwards costumes are always great. Too bad the GGO redesign is gameverse exclusive.
>>
>>176763828
But it was in a game yet Alicization is... ah, nevermind.
>>
>>176762229
Why do they already spoil Alice’s armor? You don’t even get to see her for a very long time.
>>
>>176764698
Because literally no one isn't aware of Alice at this point and she has been in several games. The Nips aren't as particular about spoilers as the rest of the world.
>>
>>176764698
The LNs sell something like 20 million copies so they probably figure that everyone interested in SAO already knows at this point.
>>
>>176764698
To hype things up. Alice, the integrity knight, is supposed to surprise both Kirito and Eugeo when she appears in the story. The difference between her and the Alice we see in the beginning is something anime viewers will notice rather than be spoiled by I think.
>>
>>176762229

That is until the end.

I didn't know Hollow Realization had a manga. While it does focus a bit too much on Asuna, Premiere is pretty damn cute in it.

What will episode 1 cover up to? The dark world?

>>176767517
Everything up until the point Kirito gets stabbed I suppose.

What’s that scene with the knight on the dragon shooting a bow? I don’t remember.
>>
>>176767531
>>176767517
They will likely end it with kirito getting hit with the death gun, but I feel like they want to show off the underworld more than the scene at the begining so it's hard to say.Before Kirito gets hit theres not much to do really theres only the childhood bits which will probably take up the most time, then Kirito explain the SLT to Shinon(?) then him walking Asuna home.Seeing as they have 3 episodes worth of time it's hard to say how they'll go about it.
>>
>>176767584
It's in the first prologue. A dark knight and an integrity knight were fighting, the dark night got knocked down and Alice reached out to help him but ended up stepping into the dark world thus committing a taboo.
>>
>>176765043

Did Reki finally release a new Progressive volume? Or at least a new SAO volume of whatever was going to happen after he did that sidestory thing after Alicization.
>>
>>176771351
2 volumes of Progressive were released. They still aren't translated. The new mainline SAO volume still hasn't been released yet I think outside of the preview.
>>
>>176763832
The villains of the SAO main series are beyond terrible. I think the fucker that comes after admin is even worse and he's just a rehash of all the other male villains so far and that whole "soul" thing and obsession with Alice is stupid as shit but we already had those rapist NTR guys with the villain of GGO and the villain of ALO.
>>
>>176766379
Maybe someone can rip it. Not sure about America but I Germany it seems like it's shown on some anime streaming site I've never heard of till now.
>>
>>176771393
Do we know anything about the new SAO arc? I only heard about that sidestory with VR Kirito in Underworld but nothing about whatever comes after that.
>>
>>176763025
Thanks anon will do
>>
>>176771510
Supposedly it'll have more RL content, and we're not even sure if it'll involve another game or anything.
From the prologue preview, i get Persona Vabel vibes from Yui, and the prologue ends with Kirito in ALO, just as the sky turns red with warning signs, like that time in SAO.

>Alice voiced by Darkness from KonoSuba

I like Alice, and I'm afraid this will make it impossible to take her seriously if Kayano Ai does a bad job.
>>
>>176762229
Jesus why wont you just die already?
>>
>>176772305
I am actually looking forward to it because I feel like most of the parts I dislike about Kawahara's series are problems carried over from his webnovels due to the series being remakes. He got a lot better at writing later so I hope the first completely "new" arc will have less of the generic shit the first arcs had.

>>
>>176762738
Source? How would Kawahara get to Alicization before he even published the first LN?
>>
>>176774851
Web Novel started in 2001-2002.
It ended (with Alicization) in 2008.

Meaning that by the time the Light Novel began publication in 2009, SAO's web novel was already "completed". (Though now that the Light Novel has caught up to the web version, they want to go past it)
>>
>>176764071
Why would it be a 120 minute pilot? 60 minutes is enough for both prologues.
>>
>>176764273
The fuck are you talking about? A-1 had tons of other projects at that time like NnT S2, Grancrest, Wotakoi and P5. FranXX being bad has nothing to do with this.
>>
>>176770413
Could be Aimer OP. She's been working with Kajiura on Heaven's Feel. I doubt Tomatsu will be doing anything since Asuna has no screentime early on in Alicization.

Of course. If you want a proper SAO thread that isn't filled with shitposters, you either post a character from the later LNs or a gameverse character.
>>
>>176767494
>focusing too much on Asuna
If you need any more proof that shes a tumor on the series. She gets injected into a story that is primarily about Kirito and Premiere.

>>
>>176762229

>>
>>176781928
Nope. Maybe more info at premiere or we have to wait for SAO stage at dengeki fes. All the producers have said so far that it's going to be a very long journey and I believe Matsuoka said it's longer than any of the previous SAO works.
>>
>>176782051
4 cours confirmed
>>
What's the chances of A-1 managing a 1 hour timeslot deal and Alicization is comprised of a modern 2 cour schedule but with extended episodes so that is effectively 4 cours?
>>
>>176782341
I doubt it. One hour first episode makes sense since the prologue is way too long, this way they can easily fit it all in one episode.
>>
>>176782341
Split 4 cour seems more likely.
>>
>>176782341
They won't be able to release that weekly it's too much work.
>>
>>176784093
Lerche managed 2 episodes a week for Danganronpa 3, SAO is a much bigger series
