Sword Art Offline 1 (そーどあーとおふらいん1, Sōdo Āto Ofurain 1?) is the first episode of the Sword Art Offline extra series that was bundled with limited edition version Blu-ray Discs and DVDs. This episode is anchored by Asuna and Kirito, with Klein as the episode's special guest.
Plot[edit | edit source]
News Headlines[edit | edit source]
Asuna announces that the GM Kayaba Akihiko has trapped all the players in the game, and that what was more surprising is that a majority of "girl" players were actually boys.
After the opening animation, Kirito and Asuna discussed why players would cross-gender in online games. Kirito brought up the point that some players wished for a change, such as the change in attitude of others, which could be achieved by being a cross-gender player, as female characters receive more flattery from others online. This led Asuna to suspect that Kirito was a girl player in a game and she began to fantasise about a scenario where she was the prince and Kirito was the princess.
Sword Art Trivia[edit | edit source]
Yui stated that players can alter their hair color and style as they wish while being unable to alter their physical appearance.
Playback Corner[edit | edit source]
The segment began with Kirito and Asuna introducing the purpose of the corner as showing select scenes and providing extra commentaries, with a special guest, in this case, Klein. The first scene featured Klein, being hit by a Frenzy Boar, much to Klein's dismay. The replayed scene was accompanied comments by Kirito and Asuna explaining that boars were the equivalent of slimes in other games, and Klein retorted by saying that he was a new player.
The next scene was when the players took on their real life appearance. The playback also featured some players who were playing transgender, or extremely different from their preset appearance. Kirito commented on how people made their character completely different from reality, and Asuna again made a comment about her suspicions of Kirito playing as a girl in another game.
The next scene was from episode 2, marking the first meeting between Asuna and Kirito. Klein and Kirito both commented on how scary Asuna's temperment was.
The final scene, where Asuna was heartily eating the bread with cream given by Kirito, was also from episode 2. Kirito and Klein all offered condolences and pity towards Asuna, saying that she must have had a hard time if she ate with that much vigor. They also commented on how Asuna's character had changed greatly.

Yui stated that the level needed to safely clear a floor would be floor number +10, thus at the time the first floor being cleared, Kirito and Asuna are approximately level 11.
Kirito's Life Counseling[edit | edit source]
In this episode, Kirito attempted to help Mr. K, who asked him how to be popular with the ladies. Kirito then got into hot water with Asuna when Mr. K asked about the many female friends Kirito has made in the game. Kirito then stated that he did not have people skills and that even though that was the case, he was still able to meet Asuna. He then hoped that Mr. K could find someone as well, and with that statement Asuna congratulated Kirito. Afterwards, it was revealed that Mr. K was actually Klein and he then criticized Kirito and Asuna for not addressing his problem and he raised a solution that he should try not to be desperate in his pursuit of women, but to approach them honestly and feel comfortable around them before pursuing romance. Asuna and Kirito then praised Klein's solution.
