Sword Art Online

SAO is surprisingly popular internationally, that it has been featured in AFA for many years in a row now, a special booth featuring many concept arts and various displays of official materials has been erected just for this occasion.

There is even a special bird-cage (Featured in the Alheim Online A.K.A. ALO arc where Titania!Asuna has been held captive in) built inside the booth for visitors to selfie with.

The official cosplayer for SAO, Enako, appears in the cage at various times during the 3-day event so visitors and fans alike can take photos of her being tied up within (Her photo will be shown in the cosplay post later)…
