- Sword Art Online the Movie – Progressive – Aria of a Starless Night
Return to the death game where it all began – Sword Art Online. In this new Aincrad Arc from original creator Reki Kawahara, the story is seen through Asuna’s eyes. What at first seems like a dream come true quickly turns into a nightmare when novice gamer Asuna Yuuki learns that the only way to escape the virtual world of Aincrad is to beat all 100 levels, but “Game Over” means you die in the real world.
- Light Camp The Movie
Shima Rin has left her hometown of Yamanashi to live alone in Nagoya while working for a small publishing company there. On a winter weekend in the not-too-distant future, while planning a bicycle tour, she unexpectedly receives a message from an old high school friend, Ogaki Chiaki, saying that he is currently in Nagoya. Chiaki now works for an organization promoting tourism in Yamanashi and is in charge of a project to reopen a facility that was closed a few years ago. When Rin casually suggests that such a large property would make a good campsite, Chiaki is inspired. She gathers all their old friends on a camping trip – Kagamihara Nadeshiko, who works at an outdoor goods store in Tokyo; Inuyama Aoi, who is now an elementary school teacher in their hometown of Yamanashi; and Saitou Ena, who works at a dog grooming salon in Yokohama – and the project to open a campsite is in motion. So the story of five outdoor girls who became friends through their shared love of camping begins again, taking on a new challenge with the knowledge and experience they have accumulated.
