Sword art online, originally a web novel written by Reki Kawahara, follows Kazuto “Kirito” Kirigaya and Asuna Yuuki on their journey through a variety of virtual reality MMORPGs. The story was originally published on the Kawahara website from 2002 to 2008. However, due to its explosive popularity, the story was adapted into a light novel illustrated by abec, a manga illustrated by Tamako Nakamura and serialized in Dengeki Bunko Magazine, an anime produced by A-1 Pictures studio and several video games. Sword art online has since enjoyed massive commercial success, with the lightweight novels selling over 20 million copies worldwide.

Sword Art Online the Movie -Ordinal scale-, originally released in Japan in February 2017, is the franchise’s first film. Produced by Aniplex and A-1 Pictures studio, the film is directed by Tomohiko Ito and based on original work by creator Reki Kawahara, as well as a screenplay written by Ito.

The story is set in 2026, four years after the Sword Art Online incident from the original series. An advanced device called Augma was developed in place of the NerveGear and the Amusphere. Unlike the virtual reality used by its precursors, the Augma uses augmented reality which allows its users to play safely while remaining aware. Kirito reluctantly joins Asuna and their friends to play the most popular game on the Augma, the ordinal scale. However, they soon discover that there is more to the game than meets the eye.

Since its release, Sword Art Online the Movie -Ordinal scale- grossed $ 29.3 million worldwide at the box office.
