I'm actually kind of surprised the numerous girls of Sword Art Online aren't getting more attention from the figure world. Mostly we're getting a number of Asuna, and that's not about to change with this offering from Griffon. Not that I'm complaining, of course, as it's hard not to love our feisty heroine!
The real surprise here is the unique art style, definitely not the SAO norm. It takes a bit to get used to, but I think I might be a fan! Plus, she's still unmistakeably Asuna, thanks to that lovely braided hair and her gorgeous Knights of the Blood uniform. There's no questioning that pose, either, ready to strike and show just why she's known as "The Flash" in the first place.
This may not be the most normal looking Asuna, but she seems like she may be more than worth considering for collectors when she arrives in April for around ¥7,980.
