POWA is off to the movies once again in quick succession to watch the second film of Sword Art Online Progressive: Scherzo of Deep Night. If you haven’t seen the the first movie, Sword Art Online Progressive: Aria of a Starless Night you can do so on Crunchyroll!

POWA has voted to go see it on Saturday, February 4th 7PM at Event Cinemas Innaloo, in the original Japanese. The movie starts at 7PM, but as we cannot book ahead, we cannot guarantee seats in the cinema. Ensure that you arrive early enough to purchase your tickets at the counter so you don’t end up disappointed.

The movie is described as such:
The world’s first VRMMORPG (Sword Art Online) became a game of death. Over a month has passed since 10,000 users were trapped inside the game world. Asuna, who cleared the first floor of the floating iron castle of Aincrad, joined up with Kirito and continued her journey to reach the top floor. With the support of female Information Broker Argo, clearing the floors seemed to be progressing smoothly, but… Conflict erupts between two major guilds who should be working together – the top player groups ALS (the Aincrad Liberation Squad) and DKB (the Dragon Knights Brigade). And meanwhile, behind the scenes exists a mysterious figure pulling the strings…. In a dangerous battle of death, there is an assault that differs from the threat, and it will involve Asuna and Kirito…!
