Is there a post credits scene in the Sword Art Online Progressive Aria of a Starless Night movie?

The Sword Art Online Aria of a Starless Night movie includes a short post credits scene, a short teaser of the second movie, Scherzo of Deep Night. It’s important to note most anime movies don’t have post credits scenes. However, in cases where the movie has already been stated to be part of a series of movies, you’ll likely find a preview for the next movie at the end. Just like with TV episodes. This is exactly what’s happening here, and SAO Progressive Scherzo of Deep Night will be released sometime in 2022.

In Japan, the first SAO Progressive movie was released on October 30, 2021. So fans in the US only waited a few weeks for it to come over. Anime fans in the US should definitely consider themselves lucky nowadays with how fast movie releases are happening now. Just ten years ago even ultra mainstream stuff like SAO wouldn’t get out of Japan so quickly.
