Alicization is the fourth main story arc of the Sword Art Online series, following the events of Aincrad, Fairy Dance and Phantom Bullet main arcs, Mother’s Rosario and Calibur side story arcs and the Anime original story Ordinal Scale, as well as other side stories from the series.
The main story of the Alicization arc is covered in Volumes 9-18 and is divided into 2 sub-arcs, Human Empire story and the War of the Underworld. The Alicization arc also includes Volume 19 and 20, which feature a side story under the name of Moon Cradle. This video will feature minor spoilers for the first half of Alicization, as it vaguely outlines the course of the story. The Human Empire arc starts with Sword Art Online Volume 9, Alicization Beginning, where a brand new VR World is introduced; a world that is not part of a game.
As the culmination of the series so far, Kirigaya Kazuto is tracked down by an old adversary and has to be put back into this new world for medical reasons, without any idea as to where he is or why he is there. Throughout Volume 9 to the end of Volume 14, spanning Alicization Beginning, Running, Turning, Rising, Dividing and Uniting, Kirito has to make sense of this world and look for a way to log out of this mysterious environment, making new friends and allies, as well as powerful enemies, throughout his journey.
During this time, he is accompanied by a resident of Underworld from the village of Rulid, Eugeo. The duo head south from Rulid, going through Zakkaria, eventually hoping to reach Central Capital Centoria by becoming excellent Swordsman, worthy of being crowned Integrity Knights. On their journey in the Human Empire, they go through various hurdles and learn more about this world, things even the Underworld resident Eugeo didn’t know. They will see the acts of Nobles for themselves for the first time, the good and the bad and start questioning the justice of the Taboo Index that nobody is allowed to break. They find themselves in situations where they are forced to make the hardest decisions that an Underworld resident can ever make, but for the better or worse, they do everything in their utmost power to ensure they don’t stray away from their dreams.. The memory of a golden girl, waiting for them on Central Cathedral’s top floor...
