Also included is a 52 page booklet that features background information relating to the series along with two interviews. The first with a representative if Genco Inc. in Japan, who deals with Japanese merchandise of Sword Art Online, including a Kirito themed “Snuggle Sheet”, yes you did read that right. It’s quite the read. And the second interview is with Dengeki Bunko’s Editor-in-chief and Editor, the publication of the original SAO novels in Japan.
In terms of on-disc content, you get episodes 15-19, encompassing the entire ‘Calubur’ arc and the first two episodes of the concluding ‘Mosther’s Rosario’ arc.
