Sword Art Online: Alicization – War of Underworld Confirms English Dub Release Date

Sword Art Online finally confirmed when the English dub of the Hell War episodes will be streamed with Funimation! The anime’s third season was one of its most ambitious yet, as it took the massive Alicization saga from Reki Kawahara’s original light novels with an adaptation that spanned four full episodes that spanned two years. The third season finished airing in 2020, and many fans have been waiting ever since for the dub to air the final episodes of the series. Fortunately, this wait will soon be over much faster than expected.

Funimation has officially announced that the 23-episode series of Sword Art Online: Alicization – War of Underworld will be streaming on their service starting Sunday, February 6. This dub release includes the returning cast and voice crew from the first half of the season, and also means that many fans will finally be able to end the anime’s run soon. As the franchise prepares to take over cinemas for the next few years, now is the best time to get started!

If you wanted to step back into the series with this latest drop of English dubbed episodes, Sword Art Online: Alicization – War of Underworld is officially described as, “Kirito, Eugeo and Alice. Six months have passed since the two disciples and a Knight of Integrity brought down the Pontifex, Administrator. With the fighting over, Alice lives in her hometown of Rulid Village. Next to her is Kirito, who not only lost his arm and his soul, but also his dear friend.

While Alice devotes herself to caring for Kirito, she too has lost the will to fight she once had as a knight. ‘Tell me, Kirito… what should I do?’ Nevertheless, the hour of the final stress test – the one that will engulf all the underworld in tragedy – draws inexorably closer. Meanwhile, in the deepest areas of the Dark Territory, the Dark God Vecta is resurrected, as if he has been waiting for this very moment. Leading an army of dark forces, they begin their invasion into the human empire in hopes of reaching the Priestess of Light.

The force of the human empire led by Integrity Knight Bercouli prepares for a war of unimaginable scale against the army of the Dark Territory. Even then, Alice is nowhere to be found, nor are the two heroes who saved the kingdom… The curtain rises on the final chapter of the longest and most glorious battle in the SAO series – the Alicization arc.”
