To get fans excited for the much-awaited anime’s premiere in the block, Toonami released a promo video showcasing what to expect of the third season’s English dub:

Sword Art Online: Alicization is the anime adaptation of the 4th arc of Reki Kawahara’s series of novels. Alicization is set to air for four cours, or four quarters of a year. It still follows main protagonist Kirito as he participates in the experimental testing of a new FullDive machine called Soul Translator, which utilizes a completely different technology from the other machines that preceded it.

When Kirito’s encounter with a former member of the Death Gun plot ends disastrously, he is smuggled to a secret base in the Pacific Ocean. There he is connected to a Soul Translator to treat his brain damage. With his physical body in a comatose, Kirito wakes up in the Underworld, the place he visits using the Soul Translator, though he retains no memory of his time there. There he is hit by a nagging feeling of familiarity of everything around him, including a golden-haired boy named Eugeo. Who is Eugeo, and why does the name Alice seem to mean so much to him?

Sword Art Online: Alicization premiered in Japan on October 6, 2018 and is still ongoing.
