Synopsis of Sword Art Online: Alicization - War of Underworld
Kirito suddenly wakes up in a vast and fantastic forest full of towering trees. In his search for clues that indicate where he is, he runs into a boy who seems to know him. It seems to be a simple NPC, but its conversation and depth show that it could be a human. As they search together for the boy's parents, a memory begins to echo in his head, a memory from his own childhood, where this boy and another girl appear, who also has golden hair and a name that he should never have forgotten: Alice.
