“Where… Am I?”

When Kirito wakes up, he finds himself in a magnificent fantasy like world for some reason. He only has vague memories from the time before he logged in and starts wandering around this world to find clues. When he arrives at some ginormous black trees called Gigas Cedar, he meets a boy.

“My name is Eugeo. Nice to meet you, Kirito-kun.”

The boy turns out to be a person of this virtual world, an NPC, but he carries the warm emotions of a human being. While looking for a way to log out of this world, the friendship between Kirito and Eugeo deepens. Then Kirito starts to remember something. It is a memory from his early childhood, how he and Eugeo are running around a mountain – a memory that should not exist.
In his memory it wasn’t only Eugeo but also a girl with golden hair. Her name is Alice. It’s an important name that should never be forgotten.


The third season of the iconic anime adaptation to the light novels Sword Art Online by Reki Kawahara. The first anime season aired in 2012, the second in 2014 and in 2017 a movie was released called Sword Art Online: Ordinal Scale. It became a worldwide hit.
