Kirito

Another sexy man in black.

Kirito is the main male character in Sword Art Online (ソードアート・オンライン), a Japanese light novel series by Reki Kawahara, with illustrations by Abec. It has been adapted into manga, anime and video game.

I ordered this magazine because of the figure. I had no idea what Sword Art Online was about and wasn’t sure if the figure would turn out to be good either. When the preorder was up, the anime wasn’t broadcast yet and there was only a very grainy b/w photocopied picture. I could only make out his silhouette ^^;; But I took a chance and it turned out to be a good one! And the best thing is, I LOVE this character after watching the anime :D The magazine was sold out almost immediately when the product photos were uploaded. Kirito looks really cute!

I enjoyed the anime after watching the first season in July~September 2012. It is action-packed, has intriguing plot with heart and good characterisation. There are interesting characters that you’ll grow to love and care about as the story progresses. Do watch it if you have the time! Season 2 is now showing.

Btw, DO NOT READ THE SUMMARY AT WIKIPEDIA!!! I just spoiled Season 2 and possibly Season 3 for myself because I was gathering information to write this post orz;; SHEESH.

Summary (edited from animenewsnetwork and wiki with big spoiler bits removed)

In the year 2022, the Virtual reality Massive Multiplayer Online Role-Playing Game (VRMMORPG), Aincrad Online, is released. With the Nerve Gear, a virtual reality Helmet that stimulates the user’s five senses via their brain, players can experience and control their in-game characters with their minds. Subsequently, the players are trapped and are fighting for their very lives. After it is announced that the only way to leave the game is by beating it, Kirito (a very powerful swordsman) and his friends take on the quest to free all the minds trapped in Aincrad.

Main Cast:
Matsuoka Yoshitsugu 松岡 禎丞 as Kirito キリト
Tomatsu Haruka 戸松 遥 as Asuna アスナ

Good news before the review! Nendoroid and figma of Kirito were announced! :) I’ll be sure to get my hands on him in these 2 forms XD

If I didn’t have anticipated budget constraints next year, I would have loved to have Asuna’s Nendoroid. Already up for preorder. My guess is Kirito’s nendoroid may make the April 2012 release. Her figma is also in the works.

And now for the review of Toy’s Works Kirito figure :)

Kirito

This is the freebie comic. It is printed on quality paper. The index of the titles in this issue. I didn’t take a pic of the Dengenki magazine ^^;;

Kirito

This page is here because of Shizuo. :D There’s more but I’m more interested in the figure ^^;;

Kirito

Back of the magazine comic. Glossy covers.

Kirito

Front of the box for Kirito figure

Kirito

Back of the box. I didn’t order Asuna. And there are 3 versions of her available bundled with different publications. She is also one of my favourite heroines too.

Kirito

Some information about the maker.

Kirito

Here’s how Kirito was packed lol~

Kirito

Kirito in parts.

Kirito

There ya go… no more baldy head :D

Kirito

Close up of his body. This is the first time I bought this magazine, so I wasn’t really sure what to expect in the figure. Turns out that the arms, hands and body can be dis-assembled. Check out the “stilts” on his feet. Yeah, he can’t stand on his own without his base.

Kirito

We can turn his head.

Kirito

Hehe kinda cute huh? The paint-work inside is messy but doesn’t matter cos we won’t see it after the figure is posed properly.

Kirito

Detached arms for easier assembly.

Kirito

360 view start… The actual figure is about 5.5 cm tall without the 1 cm base.

Kirito

Such a cute and confident smile. Slightly mischevious looking.

Kirito

Looks good.

Kirito

I didn’t push the front of his hair in well :P It should fit well without that gap.

Kirito

Lines are generally well painted.

Kirito

Don’t we just love that sexy back and sword-sheath?

Kirito

Not a perfectly smooth cast but I guess it’s still acceptable.

Kirito

Expecting him to turn his head and look at the viewfinder any second now :D

Kirito

Love those cute fingers.

Kirito

Here’s a better view of it lol~ (xAx) MY HAND!!! (Kirito)

Kirito

Since he is about the size of petites and one-coins, I decided to put Kirito’s head on a student uniform which after school one-coin Akira has kindly provided lol. Kirito looks pretty snappy huh :D

Kirito

And Araragi Koyomi nendoroid petit body… The neck joint can be removed from Kirito but the size difference of the ball doesn’t fit :(

Kirito

I thought I could remove Araragi’s joint from his body but ended up breaking it orz;; SO DON’T TRY IT ON YOURS! Sigh. I don’t have a replacement for that and it can’t be fixed back.

Kirito

But Araragi’s head can fit onto Kirito’s body.

Kirito

Like so. The hole in Araragi’s head is a bigger than Kirito’s neck ball joint, so his head can fit easily. It’s a bit loose though, which prompted the question mark on Araragi’s head to pop up lol.

Kirito

In love again with sexy guys clad in black trench

Kirito

I’m so looking forward to getting his nendoroid and figma when they’re released! :D Definitely have to save up!

And before we go, check out Official Kirito bedsheets released exclusively during Comiket 82 back in August when Omerta JJ’s dakimakura was up for sale too. Although I like his character after watching the anime, I wouldn’t have spent 10,000 Yen (excluding proxy fees) for it even if they reissue it now. He looks cute though but his body is too boyish.

Price: 10,000 Yen (w/tax)
Available: 10-12 August 2012 (Comiket 82 exclusive)

Pics of the bedsheet gathered from the web.
