On a hot summer day, Kazuto (Kirito) takes Suguha (Leafa) to his school, to meet Asuna, Keiko (Silica) and Rika (Lisbeth). Their mission: teach Suguha how to swim. Kazuto, however, has a prior commitment to see Seijiro Kikuoka, an officer with the Virtual Reality Section of the Department of General Affairs. Kikuoka wants to go over Kazuto’s recollection of his time in SAO and ALO, to resolve some unanswered questions. Later in ALO, Kirito and the girls (along with Klein and Agil), embark on an underwater quest to show Yui her very first whale. But the deeper down they go, the more mysterious the quest becomes…
If you've recently watched season one, you might want to skip over most of this recap movie. Apart from a few (mostly narrative) fan service scenes in between, this is pretty much just a heavily abridged version of that season.Might be important to note that the last 20 or so minutes is a new, mini adventure, so skip ahead to that if you don't wish to sit through old content.I rated this as 5 coz for 140mins only about 30 or so are new content, which is a bit of a let down. Also, I say 140mins, coz the information on this site (which states 110mins) is incorrect.
Sorry for my bad english. Thanks for understanding. :) If you have watched season one in lesser period than one month this in not worth watching. This is just recap and if you don't watch you will not lose on anything.
Loli....... Now that I have your attention; This episode doesn't develope a whole lot of the story, except Suguha's. SKIP SWORD ART ONLINE II... this episode is ok to watch, but the ending of SAO was beautiful and SAO 2 just tries too hard to live up to it. I consider them separate stories entirely because I liked SAO too much to connect it with the second season that only managed to make many of the charaters (exept for two of them) into shallow caricatures of what they used to be.
