This Sword is Your Ticket to the Sword Art Online Movie
Could there be a more awesome way to gain admission to a theatrical screening of Sword Art Online the Movie: Ordinal Scale than to present a sword? Sure, it sounds overly dramatic, but that’s how you could do it thanks to this promotion.
At the Aniplex booth at this winter’s Comic Market (Comiket), you can buy the sword for 2,000 yen ($17); a movie ticket is attached to the hilt. (It’s a pun; one of the Japanese words for “sword,” ken, can also mean “ticket.”) The sword is 72 cm (2’4”) long and made of styrene board (so it’s not a real weapon). There are a maximum of ten per person, and supplies are limited.
Comiket takes place from December 29 to 31; the Aniplex booth is #2232 in West 2 Hall. Sword Art Online the Movie premieres on February 18 and opens in America on March 9.
