We also take a look at the process called “alicization,” which will probably be the focus of SAO episodes all the way up to Sword Art Online Season 4 and beyond.
According to Crunchyroll, Aniplex is releasing the Sword Art Online Season 2 English dub on March 28, 2015, at 1 a.m. EDT. Toonami will broadcast the SAO Season English dub of Gun Gale Online, Excalibur, and Mother’s Rosario. The report also confirmed the English-speaking cast for the Sword Art Online Season 2 dub.
“The dub cast from the first season will reprise their roles in Bryce Papenbrook as Kirito, Cherami Leigh as Asuna, Cassandra Lee Morris as Leafa, Sarah Anne Williams as Lisbeth, Christine Marie Cabanos as Silica, Kirk Thornton as Klein and Stephanie Sheh as Yui. Aniplex of America has also confirmed that Michelle Ruff will be joining the cast as Sinon.”
It’s been a long while since Sword Art Online Season 1 came out, so if you have not watched the Japanese subtitles version of SAO Season 2 yet, it is suggested that you watch the Sword Art Online: Extra Edition special right now. The SAO movie covers the major highlights of SAO Season 1 while showing small side quests that the main characters embark on together in a new world.
The first half of Sword Art Online Season 2 focuses on the new characters Sinon and Death Gun in a game world called Gun Gale Online. Kirito learns to wield both a light sword and guns at the same time, which changes up the action dramatically. The second portion is about a quest to recover the sword Excalibur for Kirito, while Mother’s Rosario shifts the focus to Asuna and a side plot involving the various non-gaming uses of the technology used to create the virtual reality.
