Sword Art Online Progressive: Scherzo of Deep Night Ending Explained!

Even though Sword Art Online is a love-it-or-hate-it anime, it has stayed popular as long as it has been on Crunchyroll. In this techno-fantasy show, a teenager named Kirito is trapped in a video game, and if he dies in the game, he also dies in real life.

The official plot of this new movie, which is a continuation of Sword Art Online Progressive: Aria of a Starless Night, is as follows: “After clearing the first floor of the floating iron castle of Aincrad, Asuna joined up with Kirito and continued her journey to reach the top floor. Clearing the floors seemed to be going well with the help of the female Information Broker Argo, but a fight broke out between two major guilds that should be working together. And at the same time, a mysterious person is pulling the strings from behind the scenes…”

Now, as we’ve already said, Sword Art Online is a show that people either love or hate, and this movie does a good job of showing that. When you read this review, it won’t be hard to guess which side we’re on. Also, we’ll try to keep things vague, but there will be some mild movie spoilers.

How Did Sword Art Online Progressive: Scherzo of Deep Night End?

Scherzo of Deep Night comes to an end when Kirito, Asuna, and their friends finally beat the boss on floor five. The anime characters kill the big bad once they realise that to beat the giant golem boss, they need to hit its weak spot, which is a moving crest that can show up on any of its huge limbs.

Asuna was told by Mito that her raiding days were over, but Mito shows up out of nowhere to save the day. She hits the moving crests with the chain on her scythe, which hurts the boss and saves Asuna from being crushed to death.

Mito has made up for leaving Asuna to die in Sword Art Online: Progressive: Aria of a Starless Night, the first animated movie. So, yeah, not only did the group finish a level, but they also grew closer to each other.

Mito gets the guild flag in her inventory after the raid goes well. She gives it to Kirito just before the members of the Aincrad Liberation Squad (ALS) Guild storm in. Kirito tells them that there are two ways they can get the flag.

The first rule is that he has to keep it until another Guild flag falls, making the ALS guild and the Dragon Knights Brigade (DKB) guild equal. The second condition is that they can get the guild flag right away if they agree to merge with DKB and make one big guild with all of the best players.

These rules will make sure that no guild is much stronger than the others and will stop any future bloody fights over power. ALS decides that they will never agree with DKB, so for now, Kirito is in charge of the guild flag. This means that the plans of the “player killers” were stopped, and even though some “murders” who were infiltrated tried to get ALS to steal the guild flag from Kirito, the bad guys are now out in the cold.

Asuna and Kirito chose to celebrate the end of 2022 with the rest of the SAO players at the New Year’s party. But their peaceful time is cut short when a player killer from the mysterious group they met earlier in the adventure movie in the catacombs comes after them.

The Deadly Group is upset that all their hard work to infiltrate the guilds and set up a possible guild civil war didn’t work. They want Kirito’s boss to battle loot, which he got from killing the boss. They know that the guild flag is still in Kirito’s inventory because one of their people infiltrated the ALS. They plan to get back on track by getting the flag back, by any means necessary.

Asuna and Kirito’s attacker tells them that they are no longer in a safe zone and that the poison on the dagger he is pressing against Asuna’s back is at level five. The hooded bad guy then tells our heroes that if they want to live, they need to follow him. Asuna calls the mysterious man’s bluff when she realises that they are still in a safe area and that his threat is just a way to make them more vulnerable.

Asuna takes her chance and runs away from the anime villain because Mito gave her a pendant that makes her immune to poison. But he runs away before she and Kirito can catch him and find out who hurt them.

So, now you know. The next part of Sword Art Online: At the end of Scherzo of Deep Night, there is a mystery. Still trying to make trouble for the guilds, a new group of killers is after the guild flag and is led by a possible new big bad. At the very least, there is a lot to look forward to.
