Many discussions appeared on the Internet after the completion of the second season of «Sword art Online» television series. The fans have different opinions concerning the renewal of the project for season 3, but the majority expects to see the continuation.

Critics believe the plot has already gone beyond the declared genre, thereby changing its target age audience. According to them, this fact could have a negative impact on the profitability of the anime series and will cause a lot of questions from advertisers and distribution companies.

Officials at the moment do not publish the information about the release date of season 3, because its fate is now in question.

A-1 Pictures representatives haven’t given any comments yet, and Tomohiko Itō, the director, keeps working on the other manga adaptations. Obviously, season 3 of «Sword art Online» will be created, but not in 2015.

What do you think about the plot of the given anime-series? Is the project worth being renewed? Share your reviews and some «fresh» data in comments!

    Well there isn’t an official confirmation of SAO season 3 but I think there will be a third.

  2. LightMoon

    This is such a good anime! I hope they make another season!

    • Izzy

      PLEASE BE A 3RD SEASON!?! I still can’t wait to finish the 2nd. got 3 more to go…. been draging it out hoping to finish it by 3rd but it looks like i might as well watch it and wait… i’ll do what i did before… s01e01-s03??

    • animekid

      dude they are making season 3 I work with funimation I voice acting for klien for season two eng dub and I heard that when season 3 comes out it will be right before new years as a new years sword art online party or whatever but they are planning the most bad*ss season of all and im not kidding XD I saw the first episode’s first ten mins as they let us get a sneak peak and holy cr*p the bad*ss feels are real bro just real

      • anonymous

        Will it be out before the new Star Wars movie?

        Is anybody watching Terminator?

      • User12345

        You’re most certainly not the English voice actor for Klein. You can’t even type properly in English. Don’t kid yourself. You only wish you worked for Funimation.

      • Drei

        thats awesome this is one of the best animes of all time so i cant wait!

      • Lord Kirigashi

        animekid..Why you always lying. Stop fvcking lying anyways it’s not even confirmed?First off they don’t fvcking go like “hey we dont got it plan so lets just wing it for the first episode” the animation+ideas kind of take time to develop and the funds you aren’t even Klein you spell his name wrong as well..I can think of many ways how you are not Klein first off you can’t get a sneak peak unless you work as there voice actor and i’m sure the real Klein doesn’t freaking name himself animekid… and animator the voice actors gets to see it after the animator has finished

      • MMOGamer

        Surrrrrre…

    • rayray

      i f*cking love this tv show

  3. DragonBall

    SAO is number one rated anime on numerous sites and its for a good reason. Hope for season 3 in 2015 or 2016!

    • x-razer

      Number one rated anime? I liked the 1st season better. The 2nd season even I was able to see the shitty plotholes. Also stupid Harem garbage!

  4. Taizai

    They will most likely continue with the next arc some time soon. As of right now, there is no news.

  5. Trigger97

    I can’t sleep in peace! Will Sword art Online be renewed for a season 3 or not?

  6. *^Zoid^*

    I don’t think they have any intention of making a season 3 of SAO right now, but I hope they do.

  7. Shiro#1

    Its a great anime, i loved it! Is season 3 already confirmed? I have not seen the confirmation on a japanese anime website ((

  8. Magicflier

    hoping for Season 3. It was a great anime, game and anime in one! Amazing!!

  9. ViperArt

    Cant wait for the next season! Loved the first 2 seasons ))

  10. STRNGR

    There is no doubt that a season 3 will come!

  11. Om3ga

    I’m looking forward to this! Ive found something in youtube that it says that sao 3 is confirmed. Not true?

    • FingerOF

      maybe…

  12. Xelor

    is there a chance to had a season 3…

  13. Taishi

    Please let this wonderful anime never end! I’m waiting for the Season 3!

  14. Sora Hunter

    Anyways really, really look forward to another season! I LOVE THIS ANIME

  15. SporT3gZak

    I think, Season 3 of Sword Art Online is coming in-between Fall of 2015 or Early 2016.

  16. stevign

    I hope in the future nearvegears was exist! Bring SAO back!

    • otaku1221

      they already do exist just not at the level of tech the nerve gears are at they are called the oculus rift. in due time it will proceed to the heights of the nervegear . Just hope no one is crazy enough to be like akihiko kayaba

      • diesel

        its the same concept but they dont work the same way. nervgear taps into your bodies nervous system, while the oculus rift shows you a display, using a gyroscope or infrared mechanism. you still use you body in the process with the oculus, but when the nervgear is connected, your nervous systems impulses are sent to the nervgear instead of to you brain.

  17. Neokyon16

    The owner of Sword Art Online promised Season 3! Just wait.

  18. Joker777

    This anime series is rather disjointed. season 3? – Not sure!

  19. zato-1oneS

    I hope there’s gonna be a third season!

  20. Haiga

    not in 2015? Cant wait! I hope they’re making a new season now!

  21. Jayrusky

    This is a great series! I would really love to see it continue! I hope they do come out with a Season 3!

  22. Georgia

    It deserves a third season!

  23. popi

    They so are if the last episode ended on a cliff hanger there is going to be another season if they just would end the show like fruits basket

  24. II PHANTOM

    As long as they keep all of the characters the same i will watch it because if they change them i wont bother because they have created two awesome character who sho love in a fantasy many people would want, all i can say bring on season 3

    • Donald

      There not probably asuna but if any thing there only keeping real nigga kirito

      • FadedLumiere

        wtf why would there not be asuna , the whole first season was dedicated to asuna and kirito’s love …. and the second half of the first season was dedicated to her, and the second half of the second season was dedicated to her and yuki.

  25. Ben

    This my favorite anime of all time. It is actually the ONLY anime I have EVER watched in sub. Why? b/c I HATE READING…but b/c the anime is so good, honestly reading the subs does’t even feel like reading for this anime. if it doesn’t continue, then me and ALOT of others will be heartbroken.

  26. Donald

    SAO comes out sometime from fall to winter and it gonna be called punch out online but then he shorten it so now it’s just punch line

    • DaMaster1177

      No punch line is a different anime

  27. Zach

    There needs to be a Sword Art Online 3. It has left permanent markings on me because it was so successful. I believe creating a third season would be a smart idea on improving the companies publicity.

  28. otaku-san

    please let there be another season. This anime is even better than naruto or shiki. The awesomest anime ever.

  29. Alex

  30. michelle

    Well, supposedly there will be a season 3 from the ending of 2 feeling like there should be more of it. Season 1 was made in 2012, and season 2 was made towards the end of 2014. Seeing that, the anime could be made towards the end of 2016. If there were more episodes, of more work on the episodes it could even be to 2017.. of course this is just an assumption, and I have no idea about it, but if I could guess, this would make the most sense.

  31. dcdfdsd

    lalalalalalala just do seson 3alredty

  32. ghost

    This is one of those anime that are just very well done story wise. And as long as it continues to flow smoothly as it has, there should be no concern for a loss of marketable fanbase. This show has constantly delivered action, drama, romance, comedy, fantasy, and sci fi all perfectly wrapped together. It is a very well made and written series that I hope will be around for a very long time and will hopefully become an iconic example of what an excellent anime should be.

  33. steve

    i think there will be a third season. I loved this series.

  34. Kirigaya

    My god don’t you guys read???? ^^^ look up there and READ the summary. The season three of sword art online is at a deadline at the moment but most likely will be coming out next year 2016. Not in 2015. Because the critics are judging how the author went beyond what was needed in the plot,there was a twist. And rn there is no in definite date,except that it won’t come out this year.~Keep reading if u want to know the twist in why the date was pushed back~

    I think the twist in the plot was that Zekken in season two,turned out to be a female and that changed a bunch of plans for Kirito And made all the new plans for Asuna. As you can see in the season two opening (Mother’s Rosario) Asuna is in there but no one else like Kirito,Liz,or Klein. Asuna was picked by Zekken during their duel

  35. srash

    yes plese make season 3 i cry each season they do SAO i will probablly cry if they stop it here

  36. otaku1221

    guys if you actually payed attention to the series or the light novel it continues on very much. in GGO Zaza says this isn’t over and kirito mentions that theres a big possiblilty that there are more death guns on the loose. plus in the novel there is a new virtual world but this time its created by kirito and team which leaves a lot of room for story development and make it one hell of a series like once before. I’m pretty sure just because a few critics saying theres some plotholes doesn’t mean there gonna discontinue the anime.

  37. Brandon

    Plz bring SAO back for a third season! I have to admit that I’m a fan of SAO just as much as I was a fan of Bleach! Can’t wait to see where they go from here. I just wish they would dive deeper into some character back grounds. Love the concept and hope Season 3 comes out soon.

  38. Darkflame85

    I hope they make season 3 of SAO, so please make season 3 !!! This is my most number 1 anime to me.

  39. Kirigaya Supto

    I do love sao no buts no if’s and now stutter. Season three HAS TO COME OUT. Season two was a seat rocker and left me on a hook for more!

  40. Silver Striker

    Let Kideto and Asuna do some thing in real life .

  41. michael arches

    i hope there is a season 3 coming I fell in love with sao from episode 1 I don’t just want a season 3 I neeed a season 3 if there is not a season3 0f sao I think I might cry.

  42. Skye Mallark

    I really, really want for there to be a season 3!!!!! Ever since I saw it on Netflix I was like Yasssssssssss. Kirito and Asuna forever!!!!!!!!!! The people who are deciding whether or not there will be a season 3, should go on wattpad and see how many people have made Kirito x readers and Asuna x readers!!!!! please make a new season!!!!! (^3^)

    IF THIS SEASON DOENT COME OUT IT MIGHT AS WELL BE THE END OF THE WORLD.

    • Skuan

      I feel you man

  44. SAOseason3

    in my opinion i fell as if there should be more fighting and less harem ish things i also feel as if there should be no fighting but when they do fight cool thats why they made more epics fights instead of putting more fights and more epic action. i think they put more harem scenes because they were running out of idead or maybe they wanted to save that for season 3 this is my opinion i hope you agree if not sorry and say this fast have a good one (:
    i meant to say more not no im very sorry

    • iiToasted_Bread
