Fall 2017 Anime: Official Twitter Hashtags & Pages
The MANGA.TOKYO staff had its share of summer. Now, all we wish is for the hot and humid weather to go away and give its place to the red and cool autumn.
Sword Art Online -Ordinal Scale- will come out on Blu-ray & DVD in Japan on 27 September 2017. The special bonus coming with it is a short novel set after the story of Ordinal Scale, written by Reki Kawahara. Other details about the rest of the bonus rewards of the DVD have been revealed as well.
Depending on where you buy the movie, it will come with certain benefits. You can find pictures of them in our gallery. If you order through amazon.co.jp, you will receive a B1 poster or book cover with an illustration of Asuna. Buying it on HMV/Loppi, you will receive an A3 clear poster, via Tsutaya/Tsutaya online an A4 clear file and through tower records an A3 clear poster. For more details, please go to their official website. The Blu-ray and DVD comes with English subtitles, so you don’t have to worry if you can’t understand Japanese!
It’s eight days since the Ordinal Scale event at the new national stadium. Asuna has regained her memories of the SAO period that she had lost and is living peacefully. But in Kirito’s chest there are still two thorns stuck. One is about Eichi, the one who co-operated with Professor Shigemura’s plan. The other one is Yuna Shigemura, who lost her life in the ‘SAO incident’ and who has the exact same face as the AR idol ‘Black Yuna’.
But Kirito has finally decided to retire from Ordinal Scale. While he is processing the data, a new message arrives. It was an announcement from Yuna’s desktop application. Kirito reflexively had installed it, but when he was saying his good-bye to the AR idol, suddenly:
Kirito, help me.
Unexplainable as it was, they were Yuna’s words. Was this a stunt from the application, or…? In order to confirm the truth, Kirito goes to meet one certain man.
