Citing popular demand, Australian anime publisher Madman Entertainment have announced that Episodes 1 – 14 of Sword Art Online II are now available via their official and legal AnimeLab video-on-demand service with English dubbing. Free members will be unable to take advantage of English dubbed episodes, however those who possess a paid premium membership can head to AnimeLab right now and watch Sword Art Online II with the audio language of their choice in HD.
This announcement follows the launch of Madman Entertainment’s August 2015 anime release slate last week, which included Sword Art Online 2 Part on DVD and Blu-ray. Priced at $29.95 and $34.95, this volume contains the first seven episodes in the series – adopting a similar quarter-season release structure to the one used for Sword Art Online back in 2013/2014.
