In 2026, a new machine called the Augma is developed to compete against the NerveGear and its successor, the Amusphere. A next-gen wearable device, the Augma doesn't have a full-dive function like its predecessors. Instead, it uses Augmented Reality (AR) to get players into the game. It is safe, user-friendly and lets users play while they are conscious, making it an instant hit on the market. The most popular game on the system is "Ordinal Scale" (aka: OS), an ARMMORPG developed exclusively for the Augma. Asuna and the gang have already been playing OS for a while, and soon Kirito decides to join them. However, they're about to find out that Ordinal Scale isn't all fun and games.
OK, this movie is stunning enough to made me write a review for the first time. Just came back from watching it. Its full house at the cinema. It is rare to see a full house at my country when the cinema is airing anime. This is absolute shock.
Story: 10/10 The story is great. It is a mixture of sad, emotional, tragedy, comedy and romance. Its sort like the mixture of SAO, ALO, GGO but mainly it revive that kind of feel after u watched the original SAO. It makes me feel nostalgic.
Art: 9/10 For me, the art can be consider good enough and at certain part the coloring is mind blowing especially when they defeated the monster. The animation also look more lively compare to the recent GGO. A great improvement overall. *Wagnaria Cafe (www working!) made a cameo !
Sound: 9/10 The OST is not as great as SAO but they did use back some SAO soundtrack (mainly Swordland) and even make an improved version for certain situation.
Character: 9/10 Nothing much to say here but the MC, Yuna is so kawaii (you will know what I mean once you really watched the movie). A little bit fan service as usual between Asuna and Kirito.
Enjoyment: 10/10 I really enjoy the 2 hour in the cinema and I do think that you probably need to watch the original SAO series first before watching this movie if possible try to finish ALO and GGO as well.
Overall: 9.4/10 Overall is 9.4 but I will definitely round it off to 10 instead of 9 because of the story, the comedy, again Yuna is so kawaii, the art and coloring during the FIANL MOMENT when the monster is defeated and the BGM being played at the right time at the right moment. I would definitely recommend any SAO fans to watch it, you will never regret!
