The fall 2018 anime series Sword Art Online: Alicization is getting some new distribution, or a flavor of new distribution. Australian streaming service AnimeLab has revealed with a new trailer that they’re now streaming the complete twenty-five episode season on their service in its dubbed form. That provides for a big chunk of material to binge on right away. Check it out here.
Manabu Ono is directing it and A-1 Pictures handling the animation production. Gou Suzuki, Tomoya Nishiguchi, and Shingo Adachi are handling the character designs.
Plot Concept: Before he knows it, Kirito has made a full-dive into an epic, fantasy-like virtual world. With only a murky recollection of what happened right before he logged in, he starts to wander around, searching for clues. He comes upon an enormous, pitch-dark tree called the Gigas Cedar, where he encounters a boy.
“My name is Eugeo. Nice to meet you, Kirito.”
Although he is supposedly a resident of the virtual world —an NPC— the boy shows the same array of emotions as any human being. As Kirito bonds with Eugeo, he continues to search for a way to log out of this world.
