Yoshitsugu Matsuoka: "A Truly Fierce and Beautiful Battle Begins in Sword Art Online Alicization War of the Underworld"
The SAO anime saga's latest chapter will arrive on Crunchyroll on October 12
Six days prior to its TV premiere, an advance screening for the first two episodes of Sword Art Online Alicization War of the Underworld was held at the Shinjuku Wald 9 theater in Tokyo on October 6, 2019. The anime's three main voice cast: Yoshitsugu Matsuoka (Kirito), Haruka Tomatsu (Asuna), and Ai Kayano (Alice) also appeared on the stage to express their expectations for the latest chapter in front of the packed audience.
Yoshitsugu Matsuoka (Kirito) :
"A truly really fierce and beautiful battle begins in the latest chapter. All the voice cast members are doing their best to perform, the creators are doing their best to make animations, and all the other staff members have tried to gather all their strength to deliver an enjoyable work to everyone. I will put my everything into 'War of Underworld' that will begin soon. I really appreciate your support!"
Haruka Tomatsu (Asuna):
"In the first half, Asuna in the real world was working hard to protect Kirito, but in the latest chapter, you can also expect to see her more activities as 'Asuna' (in the virtual world). The opening theme 'Resolution' is a song that closely matches to the worldview of the series. Its lyrics overlaps Asuna's feeling to move forward for her lover, so please pay attention to it along with the OP animation."
Ai Kayano (Alice):
"In the latest chapter in which Alice plays a prominent part instead of Kirito, I have joined the voice recording session with the feelings about Kirito and Eugeo in my heart. Please pay attention to Integrity Knight's activities. A cool middle-aged man and a cute boy character will also appear! The voice cast members are so gorgeous and wonderful that we are creating a new 'Alicization' arc. Please look forward to the upcoming heated battle!"
Following the 24-episode first part aired from October 2018 to March 2019, Sword Art Online Alicization War of the Underworld, the second part of the third TV anime adaptation of Reki Kawahara's sci-fi adventure light novel series, will be available on Crunchyroll to its Premium members in North America, Central America, South America, Australia, New Zealand, United Kingdom and Ireland at 9:30 am PT on October 12.
