Although the entire series is called Sword Art Online, this game is only part of the anime’s first arc. Kirito, Asuna, and the rest of the players are trapped in this world, in a tower called Aincrad, with the instructions to reach the final stage and kill the game’s boss. If they do not do so, they risk dying both in the virtual world and in the real world.
The protagonist of the game, Kirito, plays Sword Art Online to escape his own reality and boredom. His life changes when the rules of the game change, and it becomes impossible to quit the game without defeating the final boss. Kiriko is known as the Black Swordsman due to his powers and abilities above normal.
The other protagonist of the anime, Asuna, was one of several players getting stuck in the game. With her determination and courage, Asuna eventually became stronger, advancing her skills and powers to the point of becoming an elite warrior. She is given the title of Lightning due to her extraordinary sword skills and can help Kirito reach the end of the game.
Kirito’s companion in ALO, Leafa, helps him better understand the rules of the new game. She is also a skilled player with beneficial Support powers and real-life Kendo knowledge.
