Sword Art Online: Progressive Anime Announced

The official twitter account of Sword Art Online has announced that the TV anime adaptation of the six-volume novel series Sword Art Online: Progressive written by Reki Kawahara is in the works.

Their twitter handle released a visual along with the announcement video. No other information on the anime has been announced as of yet.

Sword Art Online: Progressive novel shows how the players cleared Aincrad floor by floor. It essentially works as a Sword Art Online reboot with expanding the original story. The focus is still on Kirito, but the narrative’s point of view often switches to Asuna. The novel started nearly a decade after Rei Kawahara wrote the original web novel.

The story follows one month after Akihiko Kayaba’s game of death began, the death toll continued to rise, two thousand players having already lost their lives to the ultra-difficult VRMMO world of Sword Art Online. On the day of the strategy meeting to plan out the first-floor boss battle, Kirito, a solo player who vows to fight alone to get stronger, runs into a rare, high-level female player. She gracefully dispatches powerful monsters with a single rapier that flashes like a shooting star in the night.

This volume contains three stories, including “Aria of a Starless Night,” which details how Kirito came to be called the Black Swordsman, and “Rondo of a Fragile Blade,” the tragic tale of a young blacksmith that takes place before the second-floor boss fight.
