However, Sugou's plans were halted when Asuna became imprisoned in the virtual world, Sword Art Online. Sugou informs Asuna of his plot.
He wanted to use the players as test subjects for illegal experiments on the human brain and then he would sell the information he gained to other companies in America.

Sugou also believed the more Asuna remained trapped in ALO, she would eventually come to lose herself and would love him while also making several attempts for Asuna to accept their soon to be marriage. Sugou's attempts were to no avail as Asuna constantly rejected his advances and kept her composure whenever Sugou began to sexually harass her, knowing full well he wanted her to react.
However, while she tried to keep her composure, Asuna would still show how much Sugou's perverted actions upset her, shown on several occasions that she was on the verge of tears.
