Sword Art Online TV Ad Streamed
Sword Art Online, a light novel which was announced for an anime adaption months ago, just had it’s 15 secs advertisement released on TVs just recently. The anime will start airing this July and similarly to Fate/Zero, it will airs in two different parts. What’s more awesome is that the music will be composed by Yuki Kajiura, one of my most favorite anime music composer who made great music soundtracks from Kara no Kyoukai, Puella Magi Madoka Magica and Fate/Zero.
Here is the synopsis from Baka-Tsuki:
Escape was impossible until it was cleared; a game over would mean an actual “death”―.
Without knowing the “truth” of the mysterious next generation MMO, ‘Sword Art Online(SAO)’, approximately ten thousand users logged in together, opening the curtains to this cruel death battle.
Participating alone in SAO, protagonist Kirito had promptly accepted the “truth” of this MMO.
And in the game world, a gigantic floating castle named ‘Aincrad’, he distinguished himself as a solo player.
Aiming to clear the game by reaching the highest floor, Kirito riskily continued alone.
Because of a pushy invitation from a female warrior and rapier expert, Asuna, he teamed up with her.
That encounter brought about an opportunity to call out to the fated Kirito―
By reading the synopsis, the premise behind Sword Art Online is similar to .hack. The main protagonist, Kirito, entered the MMO world, where he will fight for his life, fighting with all his utmost abilities to avoid a GAME OVER, where he will die if the latter occurs.
Sword Art Online had been one of the light novels I was interested it, but I hold it off since I planned to check out the anime first. Now that the ads had began airing, I guess it won’t be long. Who’s planning to watch this too? :D
