Reki Kawahara's story of boy who plays deadly virtual-world MMO to premiere in July

The official website for the Sword Art Online anime series began streaming a third 15-second television commercial on Monday. The website posted the second ad for this adaptation of Reki Kawahara's light novel series last month.

The two-cours (two-quarter or half-year) television anime will premiere in Japan in July with music by Yuki Kajiura (Noir, .hack, Puella Magi Madoka Magica, Fate/Zero). Voice actress and singer Haruka Tomatsu will sing the anime's ending theme song "Yume Sekai" (Dream World). Tomatsu will also play Asuna in the upcoming series.

The story revolves around a boy named Kazuto "Kirito" Kirigaya who enters a virtual-reality, massively multi-player online (MMO) world called "Sword Art Online." There is no escape from this world unless the player clears the game, but "game over" means the death of the player.
