Preview Alter’s New SAO Asuna

Asuna had a shining moment a few years ago as a figure It Girl. Everyone had figures of her, and while her popularity has definitely fallen off, we still get the occasional take on Asuna. This time around it’s Alter, who showed off their sculpt of her at Wonder Festival.

As you’d expect from Alter, she looks lovely. But perhaps not as detailed as some of their newer offerings? Maybe she just needs a paint of coat, but right now I feel like something is lacking. The pose is nice, I love her hair sculpt, and the face is really on-model, but nothing about this really wows me. Kotobukiya’s version is still my favorite of her.
