A traditional 24-25 episode season of SAO covers about four volumes of material (Season 1 spliced in some material from a couple other volumes as Aincrad was infamously written out of order).

Alicization...alone...is TEN VOLUMES LONG. Twelve if you include Moon Cradle which is actually set during it and not its own thing.

And there's nothing left after it. Kawahara just finished the thing last year and has yet to begin work on an actual new arc as Moon Cradle is a gaiden and doesn't count.

So... in total this going to last somewhere between 50-75 episodes. This is going to be the death of this franchise probably and its about god damn time.

If the LN version of this arc didn't tank sales in Japan, I doubt the anime adaption will be any different.  As much as I hate to admit it, SAO is here to stay until Kawahara stops fueling the dumpster fire.
