Sword Art Online

Sword Art Online fans in Australia have every reason to be excited. Madman Entertainment and Aniplex of America are putting together a Sword Art Online Exhibition Tour that will be visiting multiple Australian cities later this year. Though only Melbourne has been confirmed so far, the event’s Facebook page promises that more venues will be revealed throughout 2014.

The exhibition will give fans a chance to see some of the behind-the-scenes materials from the making of the Sword Art Online anime series, like storyboards and character designs. And it wouldn’t be an anime event without merchandise of course. The Sword Art Online Exhibition Tour promises to deliver plenty of that with Lisabeth’s Smith Shop, which will be selling SAO merchandise never before available in Australia.

The exhibition won’t only be a stand-alone venue. It will also appear within larger, related events like the Supanova Pop Culture Expo. Note that admission to the SAO Exhibition is included with the purchase of tickets to the larger host event.

The first stop on the lineup is:

Supanova Pop Culture Expo
April 12-13
Melbourne Showgrounds

To our Australian readers: do you plan on making your way to this exhibition? And to those of you outside Australia: are you hoping this tour will make it to your country? Let us know in a comment.
