Anos from Demon King and Tatsuya from Magic High School celebrate Kirito being back
Spoilers for episode 18 of Sword Art Online Alicization War of Underworld
The latest episode of Sword Art Online Alicization War of Underworld marked the return of Kirito to the battlefield. After a year and a half (real-time!), the black swordsman finally got up from his wheelchair and moved – and the internet rejoiced! Even characters from other franchises couldn't help but show their support for Kirito's return.
"OUR HERO'S COME BACK!"
Anos on the official The Misfit of Demon King Academy Twitter account tweeted "I'm glad you're back."
While Tatsuya from The Irregular at Magic High School tweeted "I knew you'd come back, Kirito."
With Kirito back in the game, the team finally stand a chance at ending this war once and for all – though I would say the girls are carrying the group. What what's great about the scene of Kirito returning to Asuna, is how the scene mirrored the scene from the first season of the anime series back in 2012 when Asuna woke up, discovered @whitsofficial on Twitter.
Hope you didn't miss this "little detail" they added as callback. My favorite couple ever and SAO is my anime of the decade ever since Season 1. Thank you for bring SAO to our lives. @SwordArtUSA @sao_anime #sao_anime #キリトウィーク pic.twitter.com/beYSAqe0oy— laurence. (@whitsofficial) August 15, 2020
