Sword Art Online: Progressive is a Japanese light novel series by Reki Kawahara. ASCII Media Works started publishing it in October 2012 and it currently has 8 volumes in circulation. The story of the novel revolves around Asuna and Kirito during the time they still were in Aincrad. It tells the story that we didn’t see because of the time-skip in the original Sword Art Online series.
The Sword Art Online: Progressive movie will adapt some parts of the light novel’s first volume. The film will focus on Asuna’s point of view, which features Mito, a new character with an important role in Asuna’s life. Ayako Kono (Gate) is directing the movie. A-1 Pictures (Sword Art Online series, 86-Eighty Six-) will take care of the production of the film.
“There’s no way to beat this game. The only difference is when and where you die…”Yen Press
One month has passed since Akihiko Kayaba’s deadly game began, and the body count continues to rise. Two thousand players are already dead.
Kirito and Asuna are two very different people, but they both desire to fight alone. Nonetheless, they find themselves drawn together to face challenges from both within and without. Given that the entire virtual world they now live in has been created as a deathtrap, the surviving players of Sword Art Online are starting to get desperate, and desperation makes them dangerous to loners like Kirito and Asuna. As it becomes clear that solitude equals suicide, will the two be able to overcome their differences to find the strength to believe in each other, and in so doing survive?
