Sword Art Online Season 3 Episode 1 Spoilers
The story of Sword Art Online Season 3 will still revolve around Kirito. The only difference is that he will be trapped inside a different game. There seems to be something about Kirito and his habit of being trapped inside a virtual reality game, but here he comes again. He will be offered a part-time job as a game tester in a company called Rath. His job is to test the 4th generation Full Dive device called the Soul Translator which connects to the human consciousness rather on the brain.
His memories while inside the game are suppressed, that’s why after the testing, he will not remember anything from the Underworld. During the test, he is an eleven-year-old woodcutter together with his friend Eugeo. They have a female friend named Alice, the daughter of the village chief. Kirito and Eugeo’s task is to cut the Gigas Cedar, which has been being chipped by the village woodcutters for 300 years. The tree is expected to be cut entirely in 900 years more.
They will need to get ice in the Mountain Range At The End to preserve food. However, Alice will accidentally touch the black soil, a forbidden thing to do. She will be taken by the Integrity Guard, and Kirito will try to stop him, but he will be stopped by the villagers.
However, all of this events will be forgotten by Kirito when he logs off the game. Meeting Shino and Asuna, he elaborated how his current part-time job works. Shino will have a bad feeling about something but will dismiss it.
When Asuna and Kirito are going home, Johnny Black will jump at them. Kirito will try to fight him, but Johnny Black will successfully inject a lethal drug to him. He was presumed “dead” by the medical staff, however, as they transport him to the hospital, his body was intercepted. When he wakes up, he is in the familiar world of Underworld. It seems like those who kidnapped him also connected him in a Soul Translator.
That’s how Kirito will be trapped in the game on Sword Art Online season 3. Stay tuned for more updates and spoilers.
