Sword Art Online: Alicization s01e05
Titre original : Ocean Turtle
After being poisoned by Johnny Black, Kirito is taken to a hospital. After treating him, the doctors inform Asuna and Kirito's family that he is stable, but unconscious, and it's unknown when, or if he will ever wake up. Kikuoka then approaches them, offering to transfer Kirito to a better facility, but when Asuna and Suguha pay a visit to him there, they are denied from seeing him. With help from Yui and the rest of her friends, Asuna tracks down Kirito all the way to the port, and discovers that he must be taken to somewhere abroad. Once learning that the Soul Translator was a technology developed by Akihiko Kayaba, Asuna contacts Rinko Koujiro, Kayaba's former lover and co-researcher. Some time later, accompained by her secretary, Mayumi Reynolds, Rinko is taken to the "Ocean Turtle", an offshore research facility where he is welcomed by Kikuoka. In the occasion, Mayumi, revealing herself as Asuna in disguise, inquires Kikuoka about Kirito's whereabouts.
