Sword Art Online: Progressive Details

The anime film Sword Art Online Progressive: Aria of a Starless Night is based on Reki Kawahara’s Sword Art Online: Progressive light novel series. ASCII Media Works started serializing the novel in October 2012, which is still ongoing and currently has 8 volumes available. The movie adapts some parts of the novel’s first volume, and it will be available in more than 40 countries soon.

A-1 Pictures (Sword Art Online series, 86-Eighty Six-) animated the movie, while Ayako Kono (Gate) directed it. A sequel for the movie titled Sword Art Online: Progressive – Kuraki Yuuyami no Scherzo has also been announced.

“There’s no way to beat this game. The only difference is when and where you die…”
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?
