The live action film, hence the it's "not exactly anime" qualifier......

I bit the bullet and bought Sword Art Online Season 1 on Blu-Ray... It retails for $200 and I was able to get it for $160 from Rightstufanime... I was surprised that the 25 episodes came on eight discs plus an additional disc with the Sword Art Online Extra Edition movie. Each 25 minute episode was about seven GB in size which is pretty huge for an anime release. In comparison, the Gate anime had 24 episodes on only three discs.

The disc release has a beautiful transfer. The audio defaults in English but does have the Japanese soundtrack as well. The only irritating thing is that all the episodes are on a single file on the disc. So you have three episodes listed as one 21GB file.

While I really liked SOA season 1 (actually mostly the first 12 episodes), I thought that season 2 was a let down. I think I will pass on season 2 if it gets released. if anyone considered the Sword Art Online: Ordinal Scale movie, I liked the visuals but thought the movie was a let down... It will be released on disc on 12/19/2017.

I really would like to buy Fate/Stay Night Unlimited Blade Works as well but find that the asking price of $500 retail is a bit too steep...
