When is the Sword Art Online Alicization episode 17 air date?

After last week’s cliffhanger involving the climax of the battle between Kirito and Alice, you’ve probably been counting down the minutes until the Sword Art Online Alicization episode 17 air date. There’s not long to wait now, but it doesn’t exactly arrive at a convenient time for those looking for a weekend lie-in. Here’s when you can watch the new SAO Alicization episode: Truce.

When is the Sword Art Online Alicization episode 17 air date?

Thankfully, we’re hitting a bit of a rhythm after the winter break: the Sword Art Online Alicization episode 17 air date lands exactly a week after episode 16 debuted. If you’re not keeping track, that’s Saturday, February 2, though times will differ depending on your location.

Those in Japan will be able to watch it on TOKYO TV at midnight on February 3, while in America it will go live at 11:30 AM Eastern and 8:30 AM Pacific (see? No lazy weekend for you). Anime lovers across the pond will have to wait until the afternoon to catch a glimpse of the new Sword Art Online Alicization episode. It goes live at 4:30 PM GMT on the Saturday. A weird time for a new episode to drop, to be sure, but at least you’re not aware in advance.

To watch the latest episode, you’re going to have to head to the CrunchyRoll site and, all being well, the episode will be available at the times listed above. It’s bound to be a doozy of an episode 17, too. Truce marks a major fall for Kirito, with Eugeo seemingly left stranded after Alice and Kirito went hurtling out of the cloud-touching Tower during the final moments of last week’s episode. Something tells me the Administrator is just around the corner but, knowing Sword Art Online Alicization‘s penchant for twists and turns, things could be going in another direction entirely.
