A new MMO allows users to fly and encourages player killing. Kirito has joined this new game in search of Asuna and is pleasantly surprised with what he finds.
Suguha is wondering about her feelings for Kirito
Egil explains that Alfheim Online is a successor to the Sword Art Online and nerve gear. In the game, no levels are present, and people can fly. Egil reveals a photo of a girl who looks like Asuna and a map of the World Tree. In the world, the players are divided into 9 races, and they race towards the castle. He says the folks struggle to fly to get a snapshot of a girl in a birdcage which is Asuna. Kirito and Egil bump fists after Kirito tells him that he is going in to rescue Asuna. Meanwhile, Suguha recalls her and Kirito getting close, and she tries to snap herself out with her face so flushed. Then, Kirito appears, and Suguha tries wolfing down a cupcake. Though, she almost chokes until Kirito gives her drink. Suguha asks Kirito if she can come along, and Kirito agrees. After Kirito recalls Sugou's message about the ceremony, Kirito dons his nerve gear and enters the game. He enters his name and chooses Spriggan as his race. From the sky, Kirito free falls to his home village, but he gets suspended in mid air when things seem to glitch.

Yui - the Navigation Pixie
Upon reaching the ground, he tries to open the menu and looks relieved when he sees the log out button. He looks at his stats and weapons which are the same from Sword Art Online. Though, his items are gone except for Yui's Heart. He touches the precious memento that glows blue. The crystal transform into Yui, and Kirito's mind is flooded with fond memories of Yui. Yui embraces her daddy. Afterwards, Kirito asks Yui why she is here, and Yui explains that this world is a copy of Sword Art Online. Kirito notices his duel wielding ability is gone, and he hesitantly delete all his items before the system fix them. Yui tells Kirito that she is a Navigation Pixie after transforming into a cute, small pixie. Kirito informs Yui that Asuna is imprisoned here, and he asks Yui why he was warp into an empty forest instead of a village. Kirito notices his back forming wings. Yui instructs Kirito on how to fly.
As Kirito tries flying for a bit, Yui senses players nearby. Nearby, Recon tries to catch up to Lyfa. The two get attack by some knights. Lyfa engages them and scores a hit. She defeats one knight, and one knight almost hits Recon with a fire blast. Recon who is distracted gets stabbed by the knight. Both Recon and the knight die at the same time. Lyfa gets blasted by fire, and she falls down into the forest. The leader asks her to surrender her items, but Lyfa refuses and prepares to fight to the death. Suddenly, Kirito crashes and face plants on to the ground near Lyfa. Kirito mocks the men for ganging up on a girl, and Kirito easily stops one knight's attack with his bare hand. He unsheathes his sword and defeats one knight with lightning speed. Then, he asks one of them who is next.
