Have a look at Kotobukiya's Asuna in color

I think "fluttery" is the best description

Danny Choo's blog Culture Japan has a preview of Kotobukiya's upcoming 1/8-scale Asuna from Sword Art Online. I thought the figure would look good from the unpainted prototype, and it turns out Asuna is indeed a looker. She has soft, gentle features and a lightness that's emphasized by the way her clothes and hair are lifting upward. I also like the base, mostly because I like any base that isn't a plain plastic circle.

I don't watch Sword Art Online so I'll probably pass this one up, but this should definitely be a quality figure from Kotobukiya. Check back for pre-order details once they become available.
