Since then, I've analysed the first two seasons across eight separate DVDs - sometimes spending months on each to get them just right. I would have reviewed the 'Extra Edition' as well, but the English Dub has never been released as a single DVD to my knowledge. While it did take some time for a third season to be produced, we got the next best thing in a feature-length movie.
So now that SAO has transitioned to the big screen will it prove it's worthy of that honour? Or does the game get boring the more times you play? Let's start with the story.
Taking place four years after the initial SAO incident, a new device has hit the Japanese market called the Augma; a tool which allows the wearer to access Augmented Reality AR. Unlike the well-established NerveGear and AmuSphere rigs, the Augma is fully portable and enables the user to remain conscious while playing. As expected the device is an instant success, and many hardcore gamers have taken to using it.
Including, Asuna Yuuki, Lisbeth, Silica and many of their other friends. One person who's late to this new trend, however, is Kirito, who's become so used to VR games that AR is a bit off-putting.
After being convinced to try it by his friends, he joins them in playing 'Ordinal Scale' - the most popular game on the server. However, as is always the case, the game isn't what it appears. And when former SAO survivors begin losing their memories, it's up to Kirito and his friends to find out who's behind it and what the stolen memories are for. One thing that stood out to me in this movie was just how much the Augma has been implemented into everyday life.
It's not just a gaming tool. People use it while exercising, to monitor their health, and as a form of communication. On top of that, the system offers real-world discounts and rewards based on how much you play and what your overall rank is.
Because of this, people are literally playing 'Ordinal Scale' all the time, and in some cases, the authorities close off whole areas of the city just because there's an in-game event taking place there. You could say it's a social commentary on how technology and gaming are slowly dominating our lives, and how too much of it can be dangerous. The scary thing is, we actually have something like 'Ordinal Scale' in real-life already; a game where you have to go to certain areas at specific times of day and do things to be rewarded.
Ever hear of 'Pokemon Go'? On that note, this movie also contains several hidden references to other well-known gaming and technology companies; like Sony, SEGA and VAIO. There are even some not-so-subtle references, which emphasise just how much gaming has advanced since the days of arcades. One of the very first scenes with our main characters actually has them playing a virtual game of Pac-Man. Outside the technology aspect, though, there's a heavy message on the importance of memories.
Sword Art Online was a game where players were trapped in a virtual world for two years, and death in the game meant death in real life. The survivors made both good and bad memories there, but even the most horrific ones are what shaped them into the people they are today. If we choose to reject our past, or completely forget about it, then we lose an essential part of our being, and it can have dire consequences on our relationships - both with people and reality itself.
This is what motivates many of the characters' actions - particularly the antagonists', which I'll get to in a moment. Additionally, there's an emphasis on why it's important to remember the people who died in tragic events, not just the survivors who seem more significant.
But with all that said, let's get into the bulk of this review. Because 'Ordinal Scale' is without a doubt a character-driven movie. And at its core, are two players we've come to love since the very beginning; boy- and girlfriend, Kauzuto Kirigaya Kirito and Asuna Yuuki. Starting with Kirito, he plays one of his most intriguing roles in the franchise to date.
A common complaint about his character is that he's too overpowered; no matter what virtual game he enters, he always finds a way to become the best player quickly and defeat all the experts who've been playing for much longer. In 'Ordinal Scale' that's not the case. Although he's been given an Augma to test, like the other SAO survivors, he doesn't use it very often because he prefers escaping into a different world, rather than actual reality being altered around him.
He's even a bit cynical towards his friends for using the Augma all the time - even though he once devoted his entire life to gaming before the events of the first season. Also, boss raids work very differently in AR, given they take place in real-world environments, with real physics - if you run or get hit in 'Ordinal Scale', then it's your real body taking damage.
As such, Kirito isn't as fast or skilled with a sword as he used to be. It doesn't bother him too much. But seeing him in this disadvantaged state, especially when all his friends are experts at AR, isn't something we're used to.
It really shows how difficult change can be to a traditionalist, and how hard Kirto has to fight when it really matters to him. For example, there's this montage building towards the climax where he has to force himself to get better at the game by going through multiple boss raids in a row. His life isn't on the line or anything. But given he could lose his memories, and how much of an amateur he is, it's still pretty intense to watch. Plus, we get to see him work his way up to becoming the best player - rather than it just spontaneously happening.
It's a much more rewarding experience for his character. Then there's Asuna. She's honestly the reason I love this franchise so much. I know Kirito is meant to be the main lead of the series, but I always find myself more attracted to the females in anime to see if they can support the story as well as their male counterparts. And Asuna certainly does. Not only is she Kirito's equal in terms of strength, but in many ways, she's superior to him. She's a powerful leader from her time in SAO, is capable of directing boss raids - even with people she's never met - and is just as skilled with a sword as her boyfriend.
Also, she has a very selfless personality and isn't afraid to stand up for her beliefs. Knowing how great she can be, I always have high expectations for Asuna.
Which is why I hated her portrayal in 'Alfhiem' but adored her role in 'Mother's Rosario'. Fortunately, this movie knows just how valuable Asuna is. For the most part, she shares the same amount of screentime as Kirito; displaying her sword skills and what she gets up to in her personal life.
There is a part where she begins losing her memories of SAO, and it affects her health and mentality to some degree. But she's never made helpless because of it. She doesn't forget Kirito or how she feels about him; she maintains her love for him and is still willing to fight despite her condition.
I was so afraid she was going to be left out of the final battle. But no. She decides she can't let her friends take all the risks and jumps right in to help them. If this franchise were solely about Asuna, it would still be a success. The only thing arguably better than Asuna herself is her relationship with Kirito. No matter what happens, the franchise never forgets to show us their progress as a couple. And 'Ordinal Scale' is no exception. For one thing, we regularly see them spending time alone together; discussing how they're going to move forward.
Asuna's mother actually wants to meet Kirito in person sometime. Which is saying a lot, considering how disapproving she was of her daughter's relationship with him before 'Mother's Rosario'.
Kirito also visits Asuna's house for the first time, and by the end of the movie, it seems like they've actually decided to get engaged. But the one thing that never changes is their undying love for one another.
You'd think with Kirito detesting augmented reality, and Asuna spending so much time using it, there'd be some strain in their relationship. But, like a true boyfriend, Kirito understands it's something she's passionate about and doesn't let that affect how he feels about her.
Plus, when she begins losing her memories, it's a true test of their love. It's scary to think Asuna could forget her past, particularly her life with Kirito. Kirito, himself, knows that if he loses his own memories, he could forget how much he loves her. That's why it's so touching when they promise never to forget their feelings, even if they can't recall their first two years together.
A lot of people like SAO for its action sequences and gaming themes. But it's this relationship that breathes life into the franchise. However, if you think Kirito and Asuna are great, SAO also features a wide range of supporting characters. Some were inevitably going to get more screentime than others. But the movie gives us just enough of each to highlight what makes them all special. First, there are the players Kirito and Asuna have known since their time in SAO.
Like Klien and Agil. Klien first started out as a generic, twenty-something guy, who lived alone, played virtual games and was eagerly looking for a girlfriend. But over time, he developed a very respectable personality; looking out for his friends in battle and taking pride in the way he chooses to play. Even if there's some significant risk to it, Kilen will never abandon someone in need.
There are sometimes when he's a bit self-indulgent - but in a charming way. That's why it's disheartening to see him and his guild become victims of the antagonists. As for Agil, he's not featured as often as Klien, but whenever we do see him, it's clear he's a good-hearted man, who's always willing to lend a hand in battle or find information. Also, we learn quite a bit about his personal life.
He runs a cafe in town, where the group usually meets up, and he even met his wife through online gaming. Two years after the SAO incident, where players were held captive inside the massive online role-playing game until they completed all levels, a new Augmented-Reality MMORPG, "Ordinal Scale," became an instant hit on the market.
Players soon realize that the line between virtual and reality is blurring and their worst nightmares are coming true. Skip to main content. Sword Art Online The Movie -Ordinal Scale-.

il tutto in un box di cartone molto resistente , identico a quello delle due stagioni di SAO ma meglio che parlino le foto che rendono sicuramente meglio di qualsiasi recensione quindi buona visione piccola nota da aggiungere l audio presente nel bluray Ã¨ : ITALIANO dts HD master audio 5. Kirito warns Kikuoka that the memory loss may be affecting other SAO survivors playing OS. The English dub cast for Sword Art Online: Alicization is all set to get back into their roles for the next leg of the journey. But she doesn't get involved with the plot properly until the second half - and even then it's a bit lacklustre until the climax. I'm quite disappointed to find out that it's only in Italian and Japanese and there are no english subtitles or audio or anything luckely I found a english dub on another site but this was just a waste of money.
