Sword Art Online is a popular light novel and anime series that follows the adventures of Kirito, Asuna and their friends in various virtual reality worlds. In the third season, titled Alicization, they enter the Underworld, a simulation based on medieval fantasy. There, they encounter new allies and enemies, as well as a mysterious artificial intelligence named Alice.
In the third part of the third season, titled War of Underworld, Kirito and his friends face the final confrontation with the Dark Territory, a hostile faction that seeks to destroy the Underworld and its inhabitants. They also have to deal with the interference of Gabriel Miller, a ruthless hacker who wants to capture Alice for his own purposes.
In the latest episodes, 22 and 23, Kirito and Asuna unleash their full power against Gabriel, who has transformed into a monstrous entity called Subtilizer. They manage to defeat him with the help of Alice and Eugeo, Kirito’s best friend who sacrificed himself earlier in the season. However, they also have to face the consequences of their actions, as they are forced to leave the Underworld and return to reality.
Will Kirito and Asuna be able to reunite with Alice and their other friends in the real world? Will they be able to protect the Underworld from further threats? Find out in the next and final episode of Sword Art Online: Tempo 3 – War of Underworld!
Meanwhile, in the real world, the Ocean Turtle, the floating base where Kirito and Asuna are connected to the Underworld, is under attack by a group of mercenaries hired by Gabriel. They have planted a bomb that will destroy the facility and all the data stored in it. Sinon, Leafa and the other members of the Rath team are trying to stop them and save their friends.
However, they are not alone. They receive unexpected help from Yui, Kirito and Asuna’s virtual daughter, who has hacked into the Ocean Turtle’s system. She also contacts Agil, Klein and the other players who have participated in the War of Underworld as allies of the Human Empire. They decide to join the fight and protect the Underworld from the invaders.
As the battle rages on both sides of reality, Kirito and Asuna have to make a difficult choice. They can either stay in the Underworld for 200 years, until the simulation ends, or they can log out and return to their bodies. However, if they choose the latter option, they will lose all their memories of their time in the Underworld. What will they decide? And what will happen to Alice and the other artificial intelligences who have developed a will of their own?
The final episode of Sword Art Online: Tempo 3 – War of Underworld will reveal the fate of Kirito, Asuna, Alice and the Underworld.
