Alicization – War of the Underworld Trailer Analysis

The newest trailer for the series explores the cliffhanger we were left on when the first 25 episodes of the Alicization arc came to an end. As things seem to be cooling down from the recent events with the Axiom Church. The trailer begins with a refreshing view of Alice and an unresponsive Kirito on a nice stroll through the grasslands. We are then shown that a new issue has arisen, life for our characters seem to be getting tense. Several scenes flash before our eyes ending with Kirito flying across the room. We then see an injured Alice desperately reaching looking out.

In just those first twenty seconds we are shown that a lot has changed since we first entered this world. Throughout the trailer, we also see that things are not going so great in the overworld. As we see a saddened Asuna and flashes of gunshots, both sides seem to be crumbling. At this point, we are only half the trailer.


The Alicaztion War of the Underworld trailer is only a minute long but it packs so much and it seems that there is a lot in store for us as our main characters are put to the biggest test. With the release of this trailer question it seems that there are many questions to be answered, but will the biggest question everyone has been asking about be answered, Will Kirito ever wake up from his deep slumber?
