Sword Art Online will be featuring some awesome cover art for its ninth Blu-ray release next month. This will be the last installment in the anime’s Blu-ray collection, and will be available in Japan on June 26. The cover art (pictured above), done by the anime’s character designer, Shingo Adachi, has just been released, and is looking pretty snazzy.
The ninth Blu-ray collection comes with episodes 23, 24, and 25. It also features video extras such as character commentaries, a clean version of the ending, and audio commentary. Additionally, it comes with a short novel, an illustrated cover, a bonus CD, a 16-page booklet, and three pin-ups.
Although this collection is not yet available in North America, Aniplex USA has confirmed that an English dub of Sword Art Online is coming. An English trailer for the show has also been released. Whether or not we can expect to see the same collections when the anime is released stateside is unclear. If the Japanese set is any indication, though, we can expect some exciting extras.
