- Sword Art Online the Movie -Progressive- Aria of a Starless Night
Return to the death game where it all began: Sword Art Online. In this new Aincrad Arc from original creator Reki Kawahara, the story is seen through the eyes of Asuna. What at first seems like a dream come true quickly turns into a nightmare when newbie gamer Asuna Yuuki discovers that the only way to escape the virtual world of Aincrad is to beat all 100 levels, but ‘Game Over’ means that you die in the real world.
- Relaxed camp the movie
Shima Rin has left her hometown in Yamanashi to live on her own in Nagoya while working for a small publishing house there. One winter weekend in the not-too-distant future, while planning a bike ride, she unexpectedly receives a message from an old high school friend, Ohgaki Chiaki, who says she’s currently in Nagoya. Chiaki now works for an organization that promotes tourism in Yamanashi, and she is leading a project to reopen a facility that closed a few years ago. When Rin casually suggests that such a large site would make a good campground, Chiaki becomes inspired. She collects all their old camping friends: Kagamihara Nadeshiko, who works in an outdoor store in Tokyo; Inuyama Aoi, who is now an elementary school teacher in their hometown of Yamanashi; and Saitou Ena, who works at a dog grooming salon in Yokohama – and the campground opening project is underway. Thus begins the story of five outdoor girls who became friends through their shared love of camping, and take on a new challenge with the knowledge and experience they have gained.
