Sword Art Online (SOA) is a Japanese anime series that graced the screens in 2012. Although ABEC illustrates this film, it was an initially written novel by Kawahara Reki. It currently has three seasons, with the fourth season continuing to the third season. This type of series has you hooked and on the edge of your seat. However, it has its fair share of hate from a section of fans.
Like Dragon Ball Super, you might have to wait a little more for ‘power-ups’ in SAO. Until then, brace yourself for a bunch of yelling. SAO makes friendships seem like the source of real power. I mean, who wouldn’t help a friend in need no matter the costs? Sadly others have mistaken this for emotions for power-ups. Just as the leading act powers up when a villain hurts his friends, so would you, not for show-offs but for love and affection.
Sword Art Online Season 5 Release Date :
On February 6, 2022, the whole fourth season of Sword Art Online was made available on Netflix. There are 25 episodes total, and they all last around 24 to 25 minutes.

Sword Art Online Season 5 Plot Prediction and Spoilers :
The wait for your favorite sequel can be an extreme sport sometimes. Trying to answer what’s next for Kirito and Alice? Has the show been renewed or canceled? Most of us can’t take the suspense. As such, nothing beats the feeling of knowing that your favorite series has been renewed and a release date set.
Imagine the group discussions predicting what happens next to reading comics and blogs on the same. Lets back up a little with the recaps of Season 2. Here we witnessed the reincarnation of season 1 with a rejuvenated spin. It revolves around the hunting of Death Gun. The name itself sends shivers to anyone who would want a face-off with Death Gun. Season 3 introduces a cute girl Alice. Infamous integrity knights kidnap her. Later, the story turns into two boys searching for Alice. Often we like to see the protagonist wreaking havoc before the antagonist swoops in all macho and blazing fire to defeat the villain.
Although the plot remains undisclosed due to the pandemic, from the ending of part 1, we can predict that Alice is still held captive by the Knight. She has lost hope of being saved by her hero – Kirito. Kirito lies unconscious in her time of need. She believes that one way or another, he is going to wake up and save her. The setting will be in the year 2026. In an attempt to preach hope, we believe we are going to see the awakening of Kirito. It is going to be bigger and better. It is a message that although we get knocked down and are in our worst, we should not stop hoping. For Kirito is a sign that no matter how knocked down we are, we can still get back up. We believe that the fans will witness the wakening of Kirito from his coma. Every story, if not all have a happy ending; that us the good guys ganging on the bad guys. Kirito is likely to reunite with his friends in an attempt to save Alice jointly. It would be pretty interesting to see how the actions of Kirito in the underworld shall affect his new reality.

It is the first time a game has been tested using this sort of technology. Once you are a gamer, there is no quitting. Game over means you are going die in real life too. The gamers are only left with the option of winning the game to survive just like in Jumanji; Next Level. All the games fit in perfectly and are denied the option of quitting or pausing.
