After his encounter with Johnny Black, Kirito received fatal damage. The lethal drug almost got Kirito’s heart, but he will still be losing a lot of oxygen. When he thought that he’s going to wake up dead, Kirito found himself in a familiar looking environment. He will suddenly hear someone chopping nearby. In Sword Art Online Season 3 episode 2, Kirito will find himself inside the Underworld again.
Sword Art Online Season 3 Episode 2 – The Demon Tree
Kirito will find himself inside the Underworld again, but this time, his memories from the real world remained intact. Realizing that he is in a virtual world, he tried to log out, but the log out controls seem not to work. Kirito will then make his way to a river to quench his thirst when he heard the sound of chopping wood. That’s when he saw Eugeo doing his task of chopping the Gigas Cedar, but he cannot remember him because his recollection of his past game in Underworld it was blocked.
He asks Eugeo how to log out of the game, but the NPC doesn’t know what he’s talking about. Knowing that it’s hopeless, Kirito will just ask if there’s a place to stay, and Eugeo answered that their village is nearby. But Kirito will have to wait because Eugeo will need to get his chopping quota done. When Kirito asked Eugeo why he doesn’t get a bento, the other will answer that the one who used to bring the lunches was taken six years ago when she broke the Index Taboo.
Back in the village, Kirito will meet Selka, Alice’s sister, who is now the one studying Sacred Arts. Selka will teach him the village rules. Kirito slept that night with so many questions unanswered. In the next morning, Kirito and Eugeo will once again cut the tree. Kirito asked if there’s something harder than the ax, Eugeo then handed him the Blue Rose Sword. Because he doesn’t have enough OC Authority, Kirito will not use the sword properly.
Back in the village, Selka will ask Kirito about her sister’s disappearance. Memories will flash to Kirito, and he will tell her what happened in the Mountain Edges six years ago. In the next morning, they will find out that Selka is missing. Kirito and Eugeo will venture the cave once again to rescue Selka.
And that’s it for Sword Art Online season 3 episode 2. Stay tuned for more updates.
