Alright, I can finally scratch this off my figure photos todo list.

I actually been sitting on this idea for a while but I figured I would wait for the airing Sword Art Online II to capitalize on the interest in these characters again. Although that’s moot point when few people actually visit my blog though.

I have to say, Asuna makes a for a very nice figma, it’s in my opinion one of the nicer ones. This might have to do with me really liking her Aincrad design. Speaking of which I think I liked her a lot more in that arc when she wasn’t useless and actually one of the most capable fighters in the show.

Also, Berserker armor Guts is so darn awesome, I liked my regular Guts figma but this Berserker armor version is even cooler than that.

With this done, I will go away and reevaluate how I spend way too much time doing silly things like this.

Until next time peeps!

    • I’m actually wondering if I ended up making them too dark since monitors do vary greatly. Still, I had fun, doing this kind of stuff is still the most fun and interesting for me even if it is a pain.

  1. The dungeon is a bit dark, also an interesting style, but maybe add some rim light to the characters next time ;)
    In games I always feel scared in dungeons, I feel totally unwell and am happy when it’s over.

    Kirito and Asuna look more like “action figures” than other figmas, it’s really cool.
    Asuna looks quite beautiful in her costume, also her 3? expressions are lovely, especially the pouting one.
    It’s nice to see a tough girl with such sweet expressions (????)?
    Your posing of Asuna in picture 23 is sweet, anime girls always have these funny running pattern ;D

    It’s quite unfair to call her useless in the second half, she couldn’t do anything about her situation.
    The heavy armor dude reminds me of Fate/Zero ^^

    • Yeah, I only used one key light and a reflector, may be I should have gone with two light sources. I will try that out next time.

      I notice that guy figmas give me that feel as well, probably because they are bit bulkier so they feel more along the lines of your traditional action figure than a collectible. Asuna figma is so good, those expression of her are so nice that I bought her on account of her pouting face. Girls are girly I guess? Never seen a real girl like that, they all run like normal.

      But she was, had her chance to escape and everything but whatever. I do hope future arcs of SAO bring her back in full glory as she was during the Aincrad part.

      Whah…? Not familiar with Berserk? You should check out the bloody and manly awesomeness that is Guts someday. Speaking of Fate/Zero someday I should get around to watching that, someday indeed.
