Sword Art Online Synopsis: Project Alicization
Kirito suddenly wakes up in a huge and fantastic forest full of towering trees. In his search for clues that indicate where he is, he meets a boy who seems to know him. It appears to be a simple NPC, but its conversation and depth show that it could be human. As they search for the boy's parents together, a memory echoes in his mind, a memory of his own childhood, in which this boy and another girl appear, who also has golden hair and a name that he should never forget: Alice.
