SAO Strips Eyewatering Indeed

SwordArtOnline-Movie-Strip-Sold-2

Dedicated otaku who went to watch the Sword Art Online: Ordinal Scale film have been attempting to turn a profit with the 5-frame film strips that all attendees were given, which may well have been the whole reason that some greedy individuals went to watch the movie in the first place…

One particular strip featuring Asuna and Yuuki accrued 100 bids in a little over 24 hours and was eventually sold for ¥151,000:

Another strip from the same scene managed to sell for ¥91,001:

Various other strips have been seen online as well, with this mercenary hawking likely becoming a more common occurrence now due to the vast riches obtained by one individual who sold a strip from the Madoka movie for ¥1,081,001.

    The people that obsess over SAO and refuse to admit its faults are so fanatical about their waifu it's almost like popular ecchi harem series...

    Must be custom made just for the promotion because I'm not seeing any recognizable audio tracks.

    Wow at those prices, the studio / production people should've auctioned it themselves and used the funds to make more SAO.

    I just watched the movie today in the USA (available in select theaters near big cities and especially near big cities near the coast, particularly the west coast where more Asians live) and I watched it for the actual movie itself. It was good and I recommend it, but is more enjoyable if you watched the TV series.

    Supply and demand buddy. When a whole bunch of people want something that's in limited supply, the price goes up. Besides, given the absurdly expensive costs of anime DVDs/BDs these days, maybe fans would use that money to buy anime they like? Or even pay the bills? You know, whatever the price these things go for, it all goes back into the Japanese economy anyway. Everyone benefits.

    Thanks for posting this. I'm not a big SAO fan but I don't mind the show and given how few movies are screened, I wouldn't mind seeing it. Alas, I just checked and there are two showings of it in my city north of the border and they're both sold out. Sigh!
