You know a series is on the popular side when even the male characters end up getting some figure attention. Hardly unexpected from Sword Art Online, protagonist Kirito is seen here reduced into chibi form by Good Smile and their tiny Nendoroids. While I may not be the most drawn to the line in general, there are definitely a few pluses here.
For one, my minor quibbles with Nendoroids' usual overly perky expressions is solved, thanks to Kirito possessing not one, but two less than cheery face options. Of course, Kirito's badass coat looks just as great in any form, even miniaturized, giving the whole thing a bit more serious an air than most of the little line. It wouldn't be a Nendoroid without accessories, either, and while this Kirito has no issue with revealing his Dual Blade skill, he's also equipped with a potion and a tasty ragout rabbit. Asuna not included, however, so if you want to cook up a meal you'll have to grab her alone! Kirito and his ready-to-cook companion will be available in May for around ¥2,640.
