SWORD ART ONLINE
SWORD ART ONLINE season 1
In 2022, Virtual Reality Massively Multiplayer Role-Playing online game (VRMMORPG), Sword Art Online (SAO), was launched. With Nerve Gear, a virtual reality helmet that stimulates the senses of the users through their brains, players can feel and control the characters in their game with their minds. On November 6, 2022 all players log in for the first time, and then discover that they can not log out. They are then told by Kayaba Akihiko, the creator of SAO, that if they want to be free, they must reach the 100th floor of the game tower and defeat the last boss. However, if their avatar dies in the game, their body also dies in the real world. The following story is Kirito, a skilled player who is determined to beat the game. Because the game lasts for two years, Kirito eventually befriends a female player named Asuna and eventually he falls in love. After the duo discover the identity of Kayaba's avatar in SAO, they confront and defeat him, freeing themselves and other players from the game. After returning to the real world, Kirito only learned that Asuna and 300 other SAO players are still not awake. After getting a clue about Asuna's presence in another VRMMORPG called ALfheim online (ALO), Kirito decided to log in to the game. Assisted by Kirito's sister, Suguha, he knows that the players trapped in ALO are part of a plan made by Nobuyuki Sugo to conduct illegal experiments on their minds to put them under his control, including Asuna, who intends he marries in the real world to take Over his family company. After Kirito stops Nobuyuki's plan, he finally meets with Asuna in the real world. Soon afterwards, Kirito plays another game called Gun Gale online (GGO) to investigate the mysterious relationship between GGO and the deaths that occur in the real world. Assisted by a female player he meets in a game called Sinon, he identifies and exposes the perpetrators, which includes some former members of the murderous union he had previously encountered in SAO. Kirito is then recruited to assist in the development of a state-of-the-art game, UNDERWORLD (UW), which has a much more realistic and complex interface than the previous games he played. At UW, the flow of time takes place a thousand times faster than in the real world. However, he eventually falls into the trap set by one of the killers of GGO and wakes up in the game, unable to log out, with his real self abandoned in a coma. Eventually he begins to question whether he is a real Kirito or artificial intelligence model after him.
