Managed to have one post this week! Hurray to me! I didn’t bother buying the Asuna figure since Kongou came out (which I ended up cancelling), but at least I got to review it!
Before anything else, the choice in background wasn’t because of 50 shades of grey or anything like that. Now that we’ve gotten that out of the way, let’s get on with the review.
This figure was from Onegai Onii-chan shop for review purposes. Do visit their website from time to time to see what’s new.
They really should start selling more of these plastic containers instead of the usual boxes that we see. A lot of collectors leave their figures inside the boxes so have a pretty plastic box makes it more worthwhile to leave figures within their containers. However, scratches on plastic containers are more easily seen versus that of printed boxes so there’s that too.
Asuna during the ALO arc is perhaps the time where we see her at her most vulnerable. We’ve seen her fight during the other stories and even be a healer at one point, as Oberon’s prisoner she was somewhat rendered to the role of a Damsel in distress to the dismay of Kirito (and to the glee of Oberon and maybe a lot of others too ^^).
Despair and helplessness is plastered all over Asuna’s face. This particular scene is from that last episode with Oberon doing uhhh naughty things to Asuna in front of Kirito, NTR style. This is a personal preference thing, but maybe a slight airbrush for blush would provide a more embarrassed look for our heroine here, but I guess that would lessen the level of fear she has.
What do you call those things on elf ears though? Ear armor? I hear that elf ears are more sensitive so I guess that works ^^
Kinda weird that the rope isn’t hugging her arms as much as it seems. Still good though!
Long strands of disheveled hair is everywhere.
Nothing really stands out in the craftsmanship of her top to be honest, but they don’t look appalling or a cause of concern either. Though I do hope she was cast-offable like in the anime /shot
I wish her wings were made of a more transparent material though… and maybe her top as well ^^
It’s somewhat strange but her breasts seem to be too pointed upwards instead of stretched since her arms are up. Maybe that’s just me though, not complaining, she still looks good nonetheless 😀
You can also tie her up even more with this colored rope made of wire.
Flat stomach and that belly button. The biggest highlight of this figure is the skirt. The amount of folds given to it is quite daunting and very much appreciated!
Her undergarments were either not worn properly or someone uhhh moved them. To be honest I don’t know why Max Factory added this, but hey more details more fun.
I have no idea how she is being held bound by the legs in this pose.
How i wish this was a dirty dungeon floor base instead of something this bland =__=
Some of the pictures in the following might look the same but some of them have different lighting sources. Been experimenting here and there with the lighting. On a side note, finding the background picture for this was tough as nails!
I personally liked the SAO, and the Mother’s Rosario Arc, the rest were kinda meh especially ALO. Did you guys like Sword Art Online?
