A person with plenty of money and no experience interacting with members of the opposite sex has just paid 151,000 yen (approx. $1339 USD) at Yahoo Auctions for a single plastic filmstrip stained with the ugliness of Sword Art Online’s characters.
No one could pay me enough to live with the embarrassment of having Sword Art Online materials in my possession. On the other hand, this fellow just paid over a thousand real dollars for a one by five inch strip of plastic. We interviewed his parents, who commented they were “very proud of him”.
Bear in mind if he liked this scene so much, he could have just waited for the Blu-ray release of this atrocious movie, took a screenshot, and printed it out as big as he wants. Logic was never a strength of SAO fans, else they wouldn’t like the series.
The auction was heated, with over 106 bids before reaching its end price. Many other Sword Art Online filmstrips are also going on Yahoo Auctions right now for several hundreds of dollars.
Sword Art Online maniacs might have a lot of money, but what they will never have, is have spent time outside.
