What is it about?
This is how MyAnimeList describes this anime (animated) TV show:
Despite the defeat of Quinella—the pontifex of the Axiom Church—things have not seemed to calm down yet.
Upon contacting the real world, Kazuto “Kirito” Kirigaya finds out that the Ocean Turtle—a mega-float controlled by Rath—was raided.
Due to a sudden short-circuit caused by the raiders, Kirito’s fluctlight is damaged, leaving him comatose.
Feeling insecure about the people at the Axiom Church, Alice brings the unconscious Kirito back to their hometown—Rulid Village, disregarding her banishment due to an unabsolved crime.
Now, Alice is living an ordinary and peaceful life close by the village, wishing for Kirito to wake up.
However, tragedy strikes when Alice notices that the Dark Territory has already started to invade the Human Empire.
Reassuming her previous alias, Alice Synthesis Thirty, she promises to defeat the Dark Territory in order to defend the world that Kirito and Eugeo worked so hard to protect.

This is how Wikipedia describes this anime (animated) TV show:
The second part of the anime, titled Sword Art Online: Alicization – War of Underworld, adapts from the novel’s fifteenth volume, Alicization Invading, to the eighteenth volume, Alicization Lasting.
While not covered in the light novels, Alicization takes place after Sword Art Online The Movie: Ordinal Scale, as it incorporates elements from the film not in the novels.[a]
This season was definitely better than the previous season, which was the worst part of the Sword Art Online franchise that I have seen so far in my opinion.
Interestingly a certain main character was a non-character for most of it, is that why this season was better, or was that just a coincidence?
There were some moments of great action, but the military strategy in this was usually worse and more stupid than those from the last season of Game Of Thrones; and that was really annoying.
The second half was longer than it should have been, the action got worse, and my brother GC & I were just ready for it to end; but it kept going on & on, but fortunately if finally ended.
Like the previous season, we felt that they should have focused more on the real world, this season & the previous season left unanswered questions & were not better than the previous seasons & the movie.
I would not recommend this season, well, maybe I would recommend a very condensed abridged version that only focused on the good parts; which is a shame because the animation is pretty good.
