The Red-Nosed Reindeer (赤鼻のトナカイ, Akahana no Tonakai?) is the third episode of the Sword Art Online anime adaptation, as well as the third episode in the Aincrad Arc. It aired on July 21, 2012.

Alicization covered four cours (47 episodes) and adapted from the novel's ninth volume, Alicization Beginning, to the eighteenth volume, Alicization Lasting.[11] The English dub of the third season premiered on February 10, 2019 on Adult Swim's Toonami programming block.[12] The English dub version for the second cour of the second part of the third season premiered on Adult Swim's Toonami on November 8, 2020.[13]

The episode opens on a man named Sir Jack Dapper, playing his 3DS. Upon noticing the audience, he welcomes them and announces that he has been chosen to present the "Sword Art Online Christmas Extravaganza", promising to tell a touching story of whimsy, adventure, and the true meaning of friendship. He then tells the audience to gather round as he reads them the story of "The Red-Nosed Reindeer".

Admittedly, Sword Art Online: Alicization does not make it easy to get into the story. The intentionally confusing opening 46 minute episode begins in a strange fantasy world. This vibrant area is occupied by a cute girl called Alice, a seemingly oblivious Kirito, our hero from the first two seasons, and Eugeo, an axe wielding loyal companion. After accidentally stepping into the forbidden Shadow Zone, Alice is kidnapped by the infamous Integrity Knights, the police of the world who carry out justice with an iron fist. From here, the story then turns to the two boys finding Alice and discovering more about this strange world in the process.

This is a nice straightforward Story Mode Guide. It lists all the objectives for each episode as well as both the order and way to complete them. The guide is as spoiler free as it can be while being helpful. This guide will also not cover anything gameplay related. If you are repeatedly getting killed by a certain boss, go level up or put the game into Easy Mode.

10:19: The way I read this when I watched SAO was that a lot of people were still treating things as a computer game instead of a life or death struggle. One can read that sort of casualness into the actions of the group here, for example, as well as what various people did in the second episode.

I was actually the opposite of you. I really liked the first two episodes, thought they established the setting and the stakes well, and had some awesome action. And this episode is really good in theory because it really shows their mortality in this world. Her death does have an impact on Kirito that lasts throughout the series.

I agree, this episode needed, well, more episodes. It is possible to establish a character the audience would want to invest in in a few broad, rapid strokes, but this episode was juggling too much other stuff to really prioritize that specifically. But I think it at least did the job it needed to do.

Also look for the pattern of Kirito-helping-cute-teen-girls-on-inconsequential-adventures-with-his-uber-gaming-skillz instead of fleshing out those very important months players were acclimating themselves to the current situation. I say this while acknowledging the most competently written episodes are the these first 8 or so. I know the author wrote the main story for a contest when he was 16, but this anime adaptation is a professional production with resources worthy of a AAA property. To profoundly miss the big picture and flub the most important moments at every opportunity blows my mind.

If you want to catch up on the events of Sword Art Online prior to its third season, you can watch the first two seasons on Crunchyroll, and of course you can pick up both Sword Art Online II and Sword Art Online the Movie: Ordinal Scale on Blu-ray and DVD from our very own online store.

Sword Art Online: Alicization is the third season in the main Sword Art Online series and follows Kirito as he once again becomes trapped inside an online game. Together with Eugeo, a strange NPC who seems to possess human emotions, and a golden-haired girl named Alice, Kirito must search for a way to return to the real world.

Actually, this episode could be even slower if the adaptation was perfectly faithful. This episode covers most of part 3 and some of part 4 of Chapter 1 of the first novel (I misspoke last episode and was labeling parts as separate chapters), and in the course of covering roughly 50 pages, it does cut out a lot. Most of what's missing are Kirito's extensive ruminations on the nature of his new world and the people he meets, which would have been difficult to smoothly include without bogging down the story. The production staff does compensate for that in small ways in Kirito's bath scene and his contemplation of Object Control Authority, but some of his thought processes are definitely being skipped over. Other bits removed include more details about Selka and Kirito pestering Eugeo over learning how to do the light spell, which are much more trivial to the overall story.

These cuts do allow the episode's story to flow along smoothly. Selka gets more formally introduced as the younger sister of Alice this week. The implication that she's trying to take Alice's place in more than one way isn't as obvious but it's nonetheless retained, and that gives Kirito and Eugeo the impetus to go back to the cave in the End Mountains. The Blue Rose Sword that the trio found among the dragon's bones also gets properly introduced, which leads to the suggestion that it might be the key to eventually chopping down the Gigas Cedar, perhaps in combination with Sword Skills.

The technical merits of the series are holding steady, but the real test will be next episode, when the next big action sequence lands. For now, the series is just in a holding pattern as it nudges along the character and world-building developments a little more.

As the episode wraps, fans are left to watch Johnny as he charges Kirito with a dose of poison in hand. The hero acts on instinct to save Asuna, pushing her back as he goes in to push back Johnny with his umbrella. However, his clumsy moves give the stalker an opening, allowing Johnny the chance to stab Kirito. The premiere leaves with the hero knocked out on the ground, and Asuna can do little but panic as she hovers over her lover who has been poisoned with a very lethal cocktail. 041b061a72
