posted on by Egan Loo
Aniplex of America began streaming the English-subtitled trailer for "The Next Chapter" of Sword Art Online II on Saturday. Aniplex of America ran the same English trailer during its New York Comic Con panel on Saturday, and the original Japanese version aired last weekend.
The anime will begin the Calibur arc (pictured right) from Reki Kawahara's original light novel series on October 18 on Tokyo MX and other stations, followed by the Mother's Rosary (Mother's Rosario, pictured below) arc on November 8. These arcs will use a new opening theme song "courage" by Haruka Tomatsu, as well as a new ending theme song by LiSA.
The Calibur arc (light novel volume 8) revolves around the quest for the legendary sword Excalibur. In the Mother's Rosary arc (light novel volume 7), Asuna faces a duel against an secretive Avatar named Zekken for an Original Sword Skill.
A compilation episode, episode 14.5 "Debriefing," aired on Saturday with a preview of footage from the Calibur arc.
