February 3, With Kirito and Alice dangling along the wall of the church, Alice reluctantly agrees to work with Kirito to climb up to floor 95 where they can re-enter. Kirito attempts to tell Alice about her true past and the truth about Administrator. After climbing up for a while, they encounter minions from Dark Territory who have been posing as statues along the higher levels. Kirito and Alice fight together to defeat them. Meanwhile, Eugeo proceeds up the church until he reaches a great bath on floor 90 and encounters Bercouli Synthesis One.
Eugeo confronts Bercouli Synthesis One and traps them both in ice using the Blue Rose Sword's full memory release. Eugeo activates the secondary effect of the sword which drains the life of all objects trapped within its ice. With Eugeo betting he has more life than Bercouli, he tries to explain to Bercouli he was brainwashed by Administrator and begs him to remember the Blue Rose Sword, only to discover it was Bercouli who slayed the dragon in the cave.
Suddenly, Prime Senator Chudelkin appears, petrifying Bercouli and capturing Eugeo. Meanwhile, Kirito and Alice take a rest before they continue climbing the wall, and Kirito convinces Alice to listen to his story, including the truth behind her past. February 17, Kirito recaps the events of Alicization so far to Alice. Summarizes the first 18 episodes. February 24, As Kirito explains the truth of the Underworld to Alice, and the truth behind Administrator and the Integrity Knights, Alice is convinced that Kirito is telling the truth.
With Alice now strongly suspicious of the Axiom Church, she vows to reject its authority, only to be stopped by the seal in her right eye. Alice struggles to finish her sentence, but by force of will manages to yell out the remainder of her sentence, causing her right eye to explode before she passes out. Meanwhile, Eugeo wakes up to find himself on the th floor. Before he can attack Administrator, she awakens and puts Eugeo into a suggestive state and tricks him into dropping the protection of his Fluctlight's core.
March 3, Alice wakes up to find herself carried up to floor Kirito initiates a tracking spell to locate Eugeo's sword, finding it in a frozen bath hall on floor 90, but Eugeo is nowhere to be seen. To Alice's horror, she finds Bercouli in a petrified state and begins to cry. Bercouli momentarily wakes up and praises Alice for her ability to break the seal in her eye and pushes her to move forward with Kirito.
Both Alice and Kirito proceed towards floor , crossing into a forbidden room meant for the Senators of the church, where they discover several humanoid figures.
Once human, they are now trapped in pods, unable to move, and fed through tubes. Disgusted by the Pontifex's manipulation, Alice and Kirito encounter Prime Senator Chudelkin, but he escapes. They chase him to a dead end on floor 99, and Eugeo Synthesis 32 descends from a hole in the ceiling leading to the th floor. Part 3: Alicization Uniting. March 10, With Alice watching, Kirito and Eugeo begin fighting with one another. During the fight Kirito tries to snap Eugeo out of his synthesized personality.
Eventually during the fight, due to the synthesis ritual having been rushed and no memories removed, Eugeo manages to regain control of his mind.
He freezes both Alice and Kirito with the Blue Rose Sword and heads up to kill Administrator. Eugeo, pretending to still be under the influence of the piety module, allows Administrator to put him in a dazed state and to remove the module.
While Chudelkin goes to inspect the results of the battle, Administrator attempts to resynthesize Eugeo, but fails. Eugeo attempts to pierce Administrator only to hit a defensive shield. Metal cannot pierce her skin. Chudelkin gets ambushed by Kirito and Alice and the two force their way up to Administrator's room. The three fight Chudelkin, but he proves to be extremely skilled with the sacred arts, as he summons a fire element monster resembling himself, which he calls the Genie.
March 17, Kirito, Alice, and Eugeo find themselves overwhelmed by the Genie until Kirito attacks Chudelkin directly. Chudelkin is swiftly defeated by Kirito after a sudden spike in his power through the incarnate arts, which temporarily changed his garments to those of his Aincrad days. This allows Administrator to understand Kirito is not from Underworld, but outside the virtual reality. After some conversation, Administrator summons a creature made of swords, which she calls Sword Golem.
Kirito, Alice, and Eugeo find themselves unable to fight against it until Charlotte, the observation unit from Cardinal, changes into a giant spider and holds off the Golem.
Eugeo is given instructions to stab the dagger into the hole in the floor. After doing as instructed, a portal opens and Cardinal appears and incapacitates the Golem with a lightning strike, heals Kirito and Alice, and mourns Charlotte's death.
March 24, With the appearance of Cardinal, Administrator severs the outside link to the world and places floor of the Axiom church into a dark void. Administrator explains that the source of all the divine swords that make up the Golem are from converted human units in the human empire, and the source of its life is the Piety module. Her plan to combat the Dark Territory is to create more Sword Golems from roughly half of the human empire's population.
Cardinal proposes to make a deal with Administrator: Cardinal's life for the freedom of Kirito, Alice, and Eugeo. Administrator accepts and begins to relentlessly strike Cardinal with lightning. Shortly before her death, Cardinal grants Eugeo his wish to be fused into his sword. With Eugeo now in the form of a sword, he shatters the golem's Piety module, attacks administrator and cuts off her arm, but Administrator breaks Eugeo in half.
March 31, With Eugeo dying and Alice unconscious, Kirito fights against Administrator alone. She shocks him by using SAO Sword Skills, stating there is nothing about the system she does not know. The bisected, but human, Eugeo begs him to stand and uses his remaining life and blood to temporarily reform the Blue Rose Sword, which is made of crystal.
Dual-wielding, Kirito loses his right arm but cuts off Administrator's remaining arm and deals critical damage. Administrator decides to exit the Underworld and summons the system console, but Chudelkin suddenly regains consciousness and latches on to Administrator, begging her to not leave him. With lingering fire elements still active, Chudelkin and Administrator catch fire, killing them both.
Eugeo says his goodbye to Kirito and dies with young Alice's memory. Kirito walks over to the system console and initiates a communication line to the real world where he discovers the Ocean Turtle is under attack. Kikuoka instructs Kirito to take Alice to the World's End Altar in the Dark Territory before getting cut off. Kirito then loses consciousness from fluctlight damage as the attackers shut the power off at Rath, causing a surge that strikes his comatose body.
Part 4: Alicization Invading. A recap episode summarizing the first 24 episodes. October 13, [f]. January 19, . A few months have passed since the fall of Administrator. After the events of the first season, the energy surge in the Ocean Turtle has damaged Kirito's Fluctlight, causing him to become catatonic, barely reacting to outside stimuli.
Fearing for Kirito's safety and life, as he is known to be one of the individuals who defeated Administrator, Alice has taken him back to Rulid Village by riding Amayori, her dragon companion. Alice has since built a log cabin and settled in with Kirito outside of Rulid, where she looks after him every day. Because she is still deemed a criminal, she is not allowed to live within the village.
Despite this, she is regularly visited by Selka, her younger sister, and frequently employed to cut down particularly tough trees by Barbossa, a self-centered landowner who, along with his tree cutters, looks down on Alice. Meanwhile, the Integrity Knights learned from Bercouli, who was informed by Alice, about the Administrator's monstrous plan to convert half of the Human Empire into mindless, sword-shaped weapons to defend against the Dark Territory. They have since been working to rebuild their ranks and retrain the army of the human empire to prepare for the coming invasion from the Dark Territory.
At the end of the day, Alice is visited by Eldrie Synthesis 31, who offers to execute Kirito and so Alice can return to the Integrity Knights.
Alice refuses, forcing Eldrie to leave. That night, Kirito wakes in a panic. Though still suffering from fluctlight damage, he has sensed danger in Rulid, and Alice spots an orange glow and smoke coming from Rulid. With Rulid under attack by goblins and orcs, Alice quickly equips her armor, but conceals it beneath her clothes and flies to the village on Amayori. She finds a small group of villagers attempting fight off the goblins while the remaining villagers stand back preparing to mount a defence.
Alice attempts to evacuate them, but they refuse to defy the orders of the guards of the village. Left with no choice, Alice reveals to the villagers her identity as an Integrity Knight and orders the villagers to evacuate, much to Barbossa's disgust. With newfound determination, her eye regenerates by force of will and she swiftly defeats the invasion. Meanwhile, in the real world, Gabriel Miller and his team approach Rath on a submarine.
He and his invasion force have taken control of the main control room of Ocean Turtle but are currently locked out. Asuna, Kikuoka, and the remaining staff at Rath get a reading on their current situation and decide their next course of action is to retake control of Ocean Turtle and prevent A. E from falling into enemy hands. October 27, With GlowGen Defense Systems now in control of the main control room, they find that the computer system is locked down tight and that forcing their way into the sub control room or the lightcube cluster is not a viable option.
Commander Gabriel Miller flashes back to his login session in GGO where his team battled against Kirito. Gabriel logs out of his session to find himself back at his office at Glowgen Defense Systems, where he serves as CTO. He accepts an assignment from the US government to seize the STL and the lightcube cluster. Back in the present, Gabriel discovers the existence of the final load test getting ready to commence, which will eliminate the border between the Human and Dark territories to test the humans.
In order to accomplish his mission of locating Alice, he decides to log in as the Dark Emperor Vector, with his lieutenant, Vassago, logging in as a dark knight. Meanwhile, Asuna decides to log in to the Underworld in an attempt to save Kirito and escort Alice out of the Underworld. Back in Tokyo, Sinon wakes up from a dream of her experience in GGO 4. The competition was left down to two people, her and Subtilizer Gabriel , where Subitilizer easily takes her out with his bare hands, leaving her with the message "Your soul will be so sweet" and choking her to death.
November 3, During the dive into the Underworld, Gabriel Miller briefly flashes back to his childhood obsession with souls. After logging in with the super-account representing the Dark Emperor Vector, he quickly gains control of the army of the Dark Territory. General Shasta, being less than pleased with the Emperor's plans, confides in his top soldier and lover, Lipia, that the Emperor must be killed to keep the peace.
Vector communicates with his soldiers in the real world and retires to his bedroom, greeted by Lipia. Disguised as a concubine, Lipia attacks him with a hidden knife, but Vector quickly subdues her and chokes her to death, watching her glowing soul leave her body. He flashes back to his childhood obsession with souls and his fixation on his friend named Alicia.
Convinced her soul must be hidden deep beneath her brain matter, he jammed a long needle into her ear. As she died, he saw a glittering glow leave her body and ascend into the sky. In the Underworld, Vector addresses his legion of soldiers and presents Lipia's head frozen in ice as a warning to any who would challenge him.
Shocked at the death of his lover, Shasta tries to kill Vector and unleashes a storm of incarnation, nearly wiping out the leaders of each respective army.
As he aims for Vector, he is sucked into a void in his soul and disappears, leaving Vector unfazed. Meanwhile, in the human empire, Alice and Kirito arrive in the eastern camp near the Eastern Gate.
Alice discovers that the gate is going to fall in a matter of days, removing the barrier between the Dark Territory and the Human Empire. November 10, Alice and Kirito have arrived at the military camp outside of the eastern corridor, with Alice being wary of Kirito's safety. Alice and the other Integrity Knights work to come up with a plan to combat the army of the Dark Territory.
Meanwhile, Ronie and Tiese learn about Eugeo's fate and Kirito's condition, and are entrusted to care for him. With the gate just about to fall, everyone prepares for battle. Part 5: Alicization Exploding. November 17, With the gate having fallen, the Dark Territory army proceed to storm into the Human Empire, with a variety of tactics. Standing in front for the Human Empire army are Deuselbert Synthesis 7, Fanatio Synthesis 2 and Eldrie Synthesis Standing further back is Bercouli Synthesis 1 with his Time-Splitting Sword on standby, Sheyta Synthesis 12 and the cowardly Renly Synthesis As enemies and allies are being killed, among them a member of the Four Whirling Blades, Alice, hiding up in the shadows, is collecting the sacred power being released from the corpses to build up a laser bomb made of sacred art.
Meanwhile, in a panic, Renly runs away and hides leaving one of the rear lines without a commander. November 24, With the war continuing on, Alice continues to build the laser bomb using the spatial resources given off by the corpses. Meanwhile, Renly is hiding in a supply tent, only to be found by Ronie and Tiese. Shortly after, they discover the Mountain Goblins have broken through the lines and are attacking the supply lines. With Linel and Fizel swiftly killing the invading goblins, Renly finds the courage to fight and activates his Double-Winged Blade's perfect weapon control.
Dee Eye Ill, chancellor of the dark mages, sends in every minion she has to attack from the sky, only for Bercouli's Time-Splitting Sword to take them all out at once. With a significant number of Dark Territory soldiers killed, the dark mages prepare to unleash a sacred art to attack the rear lines, only for the magic to fizzle out. Alice then unleashes the bomb she was building and wipes out a significant chunk of Dark Territory soldiers, causing the momentum to shift towards the soldiers of the human empire.
December 1, After, having unleashed the laser bomb, Alice finds the chief of the Ogres, Furgr, still alive, and is attacked. Alice quickly defeats Furgr. Having figured out that Vector is after Alice, the human army create a decoy force, consisting of Renly, Bercouli, Alice, Sheyta, Kirito, Ronie, Tiese, human volunteer soldiers, priests, and 4 dragons, and head out to the Dark Territory to draw the dark army away from the corridor of the human empire.
With the dark mages having figured out why their art failed, Dee Eye Ill sacrifices orcs to generate more spatial resources and allow them to cast their dark art, with Emperor Vector's approval. As the decoy force move out, the dark mages cast an art to create a swarm of deadly insects and send them in to the human empire. With no way to defend, Eldrie sacrifices himself and uses himself to shield everyone from the art. Revenge driven Alice then takes out the entire Mage unit on her own.
With the decoy force heading through the dark territory towards the World's End Altar, Emperor Vector orders the Pugilists and the Dark Knights to pursue.
Sheyta Synthesis 12, otherwise known as Sheyta the Silent, considers herself to be cursed with the ability to cut anything she touches, no matter how hard the object is. Iskahn, leader of the Pugilist Guild, considers himself to be uncuttable by any object imaginable. During the pursuit the Pugilists catch up with the decoy force, and Sheyta stays back to hold them off. She goes up against Iskahn and a hard battle ensues with Sheyta wounding Iskahn with her paper thin sword.
With a drawn out stalemate, both fighters gain a mutual respect for each other and she withdraws back to the decoy force. At the end of the first day's haul, the decoy force setup camp to rest. Unknown to them, Vassago has been lurking and secretly takes out a few men in the camp.
When he spots Ronie and Tiese as his next target, the Goddess of Creation, Stacia, descends from the sky and protects them. However, just before he got swallowed by the ravine, Vassago recognized Asuna in the glowing light. December 15, After Stacia Asuna created 3 ravines to swallow up Vassago, and his knights, as well as to cut off the Pugilists and the remaining Dark Knights from the decoy force, she descends and introduces herself as Asuna to the somewhat intimidated force.
Due to her fluctlight being overloaded from the terrain change, Asuna experiences a headache and remembers that repeated use of the ability can cause damage to her fluctlight. After formalities, she proceeds to visit Kirito's tent. Upon seeing him, she is filled with tearful joy. Hearing Asuna's voice, Kirito is clearly shocked. Even in a state of catatonic, he attempts to reach out to her, with a face full of tears, Asuna responds with a long-awaited hug.
Shortly after, Alice appears and interferes with their reunion. They meetup to discuss what the enemy is after. Later in the night, Ronie, Alice, Asuna, and Sortiliena share Kirito stories with each other. Part 6: Alicization Awakening. December 22, The following morning, the decoy force discovers that Vector has ordered the army to traverse the massive ravine by crawling over 10 suspended ropes, and plans a counter-strategy. Meanwhile, in the Ocean Turtle, Critter successfully disables the fluctlight acceleration and deploys a patch program to invite AmuSphere users in America to a PvP slaughter VRMMO, tricking them into thinking that it was a "beta test".
At the same time, Yui sees their strategy and warns Kirito and Asuna's friends. Leafa and Sinon enter the STL at Rath's Roppongi base, and Lisbeth goes into ALO to try to convince the Japanese players to help the Underworld against the American players.
Critter deploys 20, American players on the other side of the massive ravine. December 29, Asuna, Alice, Bercouli, Renly, and Sheyta work to combat the American players. Dark Lord Vector spots Alice and commandeers a Dark Knight's dragon and flies towards her. Iskahn is infuriated at the sight of his forces being mercilessly slaughtered, the system preventing him from ordering them to defend themselves. Fighting against the Code seal, he pulls his own right eye out and destroys it.
Filled with burning rage and determination, Iskhan jumps across the ravine, with help from his second in command. Iskahn makes a deal with Asuna to fight with the humans if she builds a bridge for the Pugilists to cross. Alice, attempting to gain a tactical advantage, pulls ahead of the rest of the knights, but finds herself captured and subdued by the mounted Vector. He flies towards the World's End Altar, with Bercouli giving chase on dragonback.
While the Pugilists and the Dark Knights remain to fight off the Americans, the decoy force pursues Vector. Back in the real world, Critter prepares to deploy another 20, American players to surround the decoy force. Vassago decides to dive in again on a "special" account. Back in the Underworld, the Americans spawn around the decoy force, when a bright light appears in the sky.
Sinon, using the superaccount of Solus the Sun Goddess, reveals herself and destroys the Americans. July 5, A recap episode summarizing the first 36 episodes. July 12, . November 8, . Sinon, having logged in as Solus the Sun Goddess, descends and reunites with Asuna and a still-catatonic Kirito. Asuna asks Sinon to go after Vector while she prepares a counterattack against the remaining Americans.
Meanwhile, Leafa also descends to the underworld as Terraria the Earth Goddess and meets Lilpilin, the Orc Chieftain. After establishing a rapport, Leafa allows Lilpilin to take her to Dark Lord Vector as a prisoner. The Dark Mage Leader Dee Eye Ell, having survived Alice's attack, appears and knocks Lilpilin away. She begins to consume Leafa's avatar's energy.
Lilpilin overcomes his Code restriction and acts on his own to save Leafa. Leafa disarms and destroys Dee Eye Ell. Far to the south, Bercouli Synthesis One pursues Vector on dragonback, and uses his secret skill, Uragiri, to ground Vector's dragon. Bercouli engages Vector in battle but is overwhelmed by Vector's super account stats and stun powers. Realizing he cannot win against Vector, Bercouli resolves to die fighting for Alice's sake. Back at the ruins, the American players are ambushed, and Asuna joins the battle.
Vassago returns to the game in a new avatar, stalking Asuna from afar. A bright light appears in the sky. The new arrival reveals himself to be Klein, in his ALO avatar. More allies begin to arrive from outside the Underworld. July 19, Agil, Lisbeth and Silica also arrive to assist Asuna, accompanied by hundreds of players from ALO who responded to Yui's request for help.
Meanwhile, at the Ocean Turtle, Higa comes up with a way to restore Kirito's Fluctlight with help from his friends, but must gain access the main control room occupied by the attackers. Bercoulli is mortally wounded by Vector, but manages to defeat him before dying. Soon after, Alice awakens beside Bercoulli's body. As his soul passes away, he asks for Fanatio to take care of their unborn child. With his Vector character disabled, Miller asks Critter to convert a character from his personal account so that he can return to the Underworld and continue with his plans.
July 26, Sinon finds Alice mourning Bercoulli's death and instructs her to keep proceeding to the World's End Altar while she stays behind to face Vector when he returns from the real world. Meanwhile, Sheyta and Iskahn fight the enemy forces until exhaustion, declaring their newfound love for each other before being overwhelmed. Asuna and the others are surprised when Vassago reappears, using his PoH character and leading a massive army of Korean and Chinese players.
Miller logs back in using his Subtilizer character to face a horrified Sinon. At the Ocean Turtle, Higa is about to hack into the main control room to restore Kirito's Fluctlight when Yanai threatens him at gunpoint. August 2, Revealing that he is the traitor cooperating with the Americans, Yanai confesses that he used to work with Sugou in his illegal experiments and was also working with Administrator to sabotage the Alicization Project out of love for her and wants Kirito to die in revenge for her death.
Meanwhile, Kikuoka and Rinko discover that Yanai was responsible for inserting code into UW and realize his betrayal. At UW, Subtlizer overpowers Sinon but she is saved by her connection with Kirito, while Sheyta and Iskahn are about to be killed along the surviving pugilists when Leafa and Lilpilin arrive with the Orc forces to rescue them and the ALO players attempt to convince the Chinese and Korean players that they were deceived but Vassago intervenes and stops them.
In the end, Asuna and the others surrender to protect the UW residents and Vassago reveals himself as PoH to Asuna, confessing that he was the one who tipped off the rest of Laughing Coffin in SAO so that Asuna, Kirito and the rest of the forward players would become murderers.
He then asks for Kirito to be brought before him, despite Asuna's pleas. Elsewhere, the old SAO server starts up. August 9, While Yui notices the server starting, Vassago is about to kill Kirito when Eiji and Yuna arrive to help him. Eiji fights Vassago to avenge his friends from SAO but is defeated and Yuna takes him away. At the occasion, two of the red players recognize Vassago as a member of Laughing Coffin and attempt to dissuade the others, but to no avail, and Vassago uses his powers to make them fight each other instead.
In the occasion, Vassago reminisces about his hatred toward Japanese people, which comes from his Japanese father who abandoned him and his mother, who was his mistress, and only came to meet him years later to ask for him to donate a kidney to save his other, legitimate son, leading him to steal a Nerve Gear and log into SAO, despite knowing the risks, so that he could kill Japanese players at will.
Meanwhile, Sinon is overpowered by Subtlizer when she manages to turn the battle and almost defeats the enemy, who is forced to retreat, while Leafa fights a horde of red players until exhaustion. Back at the Ocean Turtle, Rinko throws a wrench on Yanai which makes him lose his balance and fall to his death, allowing Higa to proceed with his effort to use Asuna, Sinon and Leafa's Fluctlights to restore Kirito's. Part 7: Alicization Lasting.
Still in a coma, Kirito is haunted by painful memories of his past while Vassago threatens to kill all Japanese players and UW residents until he awakens. Hearing Yuuki's words of encouragement, Asuna rises up again and pushes the enemy back, almost defeating him.
However, Vassago siphons the energy around him to restore himself and takes control of the red players, ordering them to attack. Meanwhile, Higa realizes that Asuna, Sinon and Leafa's Fluctlights combined are not sufficient enough to bring Kirito back, until a fragment of Eugeo's own Fluctlight reaches Kirito, giving him the final push he needs to overcome his guilt and restore his Fluctlight.
Back in UW, Kirito finally awakens and uses Eugeo's Perfect Enhanced Armament to freeze the red players, and confronts Vassago to protect his friends. August 23, Kirito fights Vassago at a disadvantage, unable to use his right arm to prevent the foreign players from escaping and attacking the others, until Eugeo's spirit appears next to him and together, they use the power of both swords to forcibly log out all red players from UW.
Vassago attempts to use their residual life force to empower himself, but Kirito uses it to restore Eugeo's sword instead and revert to his old SAO avatar. Kirito then fights and defeats Vassago, but when the enemy threatens to never quit until he kills him and Asuna, Kirito uses the power of his sword to transform Vassago's avatar into a giant tree resembling Gigas Cedar, trapping him inside UW for eternity. This caused Vassago's real life body to age rapidly.
After using the power he obtained to restore the survivors, Kirito departs with Asuna to help Alice who is traveling to the World End's Altar with Miller chasing her. Meanwhile, at the Ocean Turtle, the American soldiers release the limiters of the UW server, which will accelerate time inside UW millions of times and by an open channel Higa established directly with Kirito's mind, Kikuoka warns him to escape with Asuna through the World End's Altar before it happens, or they will be trapped there for years.
Having reached the altar, Alice orders her dragons to flee, but they decide to confront Miller instead, and just as they are about to be killed by him, Kirito and Asuna arrive to protect them. August 30, To save the dragons from death, Kirito turns them back into eggs and while Asuna takes Alice to the World End's Altar, Kirito stays behind to confront Miller.
Despite his new abilities, Kirito is easily overpowered by Miller until he releases the power of both his swords, which restrains the enemy and creates a night sky across all UW, with all of Kirito's friends sending their thoughts to empower him.
With the help of Eugeo's spirit, Kirito defeats Miller for good just as the UW server reaches maximum acceleration, which forcibly logs out all other players from UW while Alice also departs to the real world through the altar.
Realizing that he will be trapped inside UW for years, Kirito bursts into tears until Asuna appears before him, much to his surprise. September 6, Rinko retrieves Alice's Lightcube, but Asuna informs her that she will stay behind in UW to be with Kirito, and the system enters the maximum acceleration phase. Meanwhile, Miller returns to the real world, just to find that his body is dead and his soul is dragged to Hell. Upon learning that both Miller and Vassago were ultimately defeated, Critter and the other remaining attackers decide to flee.
Before fleeing, they rigged Ocean Turtle's main engine with explosives. However, Akihiko Kayaba takes possession of one of the installation's robots and successfully disarms the bomb.
On their retreat, Critter finds out the other attackers never found Vassago's body. The robot used by Kayaba also disappears. Back in UW during the post-credits, Kirito and Asuna depart from the World's End Altar to explore the world together. September 13, Rinko holds a press conference to introduce Alice as the first autonomous Artificial Intelligence with her Fluctlight implanted into an android while Higa continues watching over Kirito and Asuna at the Ocean Turtle along Kikuoka, who was officially declared dead as a means to cover up the whole incident.
During the interview, Alice notices that Kazuto is awakening and leaves to meet him. Once Kazuto awakes, he tells Alice that her sister is in a deep freeze at the Central Cathedral, waiting to meet her again, and asks Higa to erase all of his and Asuna's memories of the years they spent together. While recuperating at the hospital, Kazuto and Asuna are visited by Kikuoka, who tells them that he has a plan to prevent the government from seizing UW and its residents, while Higa talks to a copy of Kazuto that he made before the deletion, who asks for his help to contact Kayaba in order to look for a way to protect UW.
At home during the credits, Kazuto mourns Eugeo's death when Suguha approaches him and asks him to tell her his story.
