The fall 2018 anime series Sword Art Online: Alicization is getting its first season out in Germany on Blu-ray and DVD through Peppermint Anime. The distributor has set a February 24th, 2020 debut for the fourth volume and has released the latest clip for it and the fifteenth overall in promotion of the series. It’s pretty heavily set on the action side of things with a really good sword fight that plays well for the cast. The set has episodes 19 through 24 on it in both Japanese and German dubs with German subtitles.
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: Kirito awakens in a vast, fantastical forest filled with towering trees. In his search for clues to the truth of his surroundings, he encounters a young boy who seems to know him. He ought to be a simple NPC, but the depth of his emotions seem no different than a human.
As they search for the boy’s parents, Kirito finds a peculiar memory returning to him. A memory from his own childhood, of this boy and a girl, too, with golden hair, and a name he should have never forgotten Alice.
