To say Sword Art Online was disliked by esteemed members of [our anime club](http://utsanime.net/) would be the understatement of the millennium. Or to put it another way… Y U LIKE THAT!?!?!?!?!

I’ll be honest, I didn’t find it terrible, though they didn’t do much with the otherwise awesome early premise they’d developed. And I liked the character designs. What can I say, I’m a sucker for art!

Clara and I [saw this fig of Asuna yesterday on the train, and I have to say I’m a fan. The flowing white of her dress, the amount of detail in her hair… it’s amazing what figure artists and manufactures are able to produce these days.

About the only thing boring about this fig is her base, though clear “not there” plastic is still better than the plain black bases of yore. I almost wrote “hitam” bases, but wrong language.
