Sword Art Online: Alicization – War of Underworld Spoilers
‘Sword Art Online: Alicization – War of Underworld’ begins with the death of Quinella, the pontifex of the Axiom Church. Although her death holds some significance in the overarching premise, it brings absolutely no changes in the lives of Kirito and the crew. While so much is going on, Kirito is somehow able to establish a communication with the outside world. Even after knowing that this could have some drastic consequences, he tries to learn about Rath’s Island using this newfound connection. He is surprised to know that Rath’s Island is now heavily raided and as a result of this raid, even his flashlight suffers from some serious damage. The broken-down flashlight sends him in a deep state of comatose, due to which it comes down to Alice to help him. She takes him to Rulid village even after being banished from there and for a while, everything seems peaceful for her.
But within no time, she learns that the Dark Territory is rapidly taking over the Human World. Without any prior preparation, she delves into the Underworld and is followed by Asuna, who rescues Kirito. In the meantime, the gates of the game are opened up to American players who are heavily manipulated. Adding more heft to the troubles of the Japanese players is the fact that the Western players are released during their inactive hours due to which they suffer from a serious competitive disadvantage.
