Sword Art Online the Movie -Progressive- Aria of a Starless Night has finally made its theatrical premiere in North America, and is already a huge hit with fans. Following the end of the massive third season of the series bringing the long running Alicization arc to an end, fans had been wondering where the anime could go next. It was then confirmed that the franchise would be going forward by actually going backward and adapting the official side-story written by series creator Reki Kawahara giving a more detailed account of the events from the Aincrard arc at the beginning of the series.
Sword Art Online the Movie -Progressive- Aria of a Starless Night is the first in a confirmed new franchise for the series as the second entry of this film series has already been announced for a release next year. It's a good thing that fans outside of Japan are already receiving the film as highly as they are, and it's clear from the initial responses that a second film in this particular series is a good move. With the film now making its debut, the reviews from fans who were able to attend screenings are positive for sure.
