Animate Akihabara has recently sported a Sword Art Online theme and even opened a special limited-time Sword Art Online Only Shop in their Basement 1 floor, which not only sells merchandise dedicated to the series, but also features a nifty SAO exhibit.

The shop will only be open until November 3, 2014, so if you are ever in Japan during that period, why not drop by? The Animate offcial website, Animate.tv, has recently done a photo feature on the recently-opened Sword Art Online Only Shop, which is certainly a treat for fans of Kirito, Asuna, Leafa, Sinon, Silica, Klein, Agil, Lizbeth, and the rest of the SAO characters.

Even when going down the stairs, you can already see some of the scenes in the anime’s first season which includes the Aincrad (SAO) arc and the Fairy Dance (ALO) arc.

By the time you reach the store itself, you will then see an exhibit featuring scenes from the recently-concluded Phantom Bullet (GGO) arc along with several SAO merchandise.

Oh Kirito, how many people have you fooled with this scene? Kiritrap has been trolling a lot lately…

Also featured are several life-size standees of the SAO versions of Kirito, Asuna, Yui, Lizbeth, and Silica which you can take your pictures with. A diorama of Deathgun in front of the Bullet of Bullets registration screen is also featured. Scary huh?

And since this is a shop and all that, there are Sword Art Online merchandise galore from key rings to buttons to posters. There is also a display which previews some of the upcoming SAO merchandise.
