Synopsis

“Where…am I…?” 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 (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. Meanwhile, he remembers a certain memory deep down within him. He remembers racing through the mountains with Eugeo as a child… A memory that he should not have in the first place... And in this memory, he sees someone other than Eugeo, a young blond girl. Her name is Alice. And it is a name that must never be forgotten…

I'm definitely looking forward to this. Today's episode is an hour long, and it's going to run for four cours, though I wouldn't be surprised if it is a split cour taking the spring season off so that they can make the best possible product.

It figures that it would be a split cour if it is what I think it is, the show airing the first half in the fall and winter, then take the spring off, and the second half in the summer and fall of 2019. Four cours of a show that had aired in two-cour seasons is too much to ask for without a break.

Anyway, this show is supposed to go up at 10am Pacific (i.e. in 20 minutes from the time of this post) as that's what it says on the Funimation website. Remember that Funimation is also streaming Aniplex shows now since both Aniplex and Funimation are owned by Sony, albeit different branches of Sony.

And the first episode is now up: https://www.crunchyroll.com/sword-art-online/episode-1-underworld-777764

Episode 1

So it begins with Kirito, Eugeo, and Alice all having a picnic and adventure, but they venture into dangerous territory where they see two dragon knights fighting each other in a desolate land. The three are not supposed to go there, but then Alice crossed into it and she became a wanted girl marked for execution. Kirito tried to stop the knight, but he was no match. And then in the second half Kirito and friends are having a squad battle in GGO, with Kirito explaining what he recalls from the Underworld test seeing that he has forgotten every detail about it. But what he does know about the project he explains to those two. And then Asuna lets Kirito know that they will be together no matter what. Pretty good start there as it's all setup for big things to go down, so big that it's going to take four cours worth of episodes to get through all of it.
