LiSA has made her voice heard across every Sword Art Online anime season and movie, so it’s no surprise that she’ll be rocking the roof again for Sword Art Online the Movie -Progressive- Aria of a Starless Night!
Sword Art Online the Movie -Progressive- Aria of a Starless Night is currently set to release in Japanese theaters on October 30.
Ayako Kawano leads the production in her first primary directorial role at A-1 Pictures, joined by Kento Toya (character designer on Sword Art Online Alicization) and composer Yuki Kajiura.
The original series’ cast, including Yoshitsugu Matsuoka and Haruka Tomatsu, will be reprising their roles, with Inori Minase (Re:ZERO -Starting Life in Another World-) joining the cast as Mito, an anime-original character.
Sword Art Online Progressive, a retelling of the series’ Aincrad arc, was first published by author Reki Kawahara in 2012 and now spans seven volumes.
Each volume covers a single floor in Sword Art Online, starting from Floor 1, which will be the subject of the upcoming film. Yen Press publishes the series in English.
