Pre-Order Shibuya Scramble Asuna Now!
Welcome to the Solaris Blog! ヾ( ʚ̴̶̷ .̫ ʚ̴̶̷ )ﾉ”
Winter nights, as cold as they are, are still my favorite. The air is light and crisp, and we can see the stars! They even seem to shine brighter when it’s cold outside…
❇ ❈ ❅ ❄ ❆
They shine so bright, yet feel so cold and distant. Just like a certain blood knight of a beautifully tragic world.╰(⇀︿⇀)つ-]═───
If you ever wanted to have your own twinkling star, wait no longer: Asuna will shine brighter than the Milky Way! ¨★*✲⋆(◠ω° )
In this brilliant Shibuya Scramble figure by AlphaSatellite, we learn why the latest movie in the Sword Art Online franchise is called “Aria of a Starless Night”: Asuna swept all the stars up in her dress! ★─☆｡oﾟ｡★
Okay, no, that isn’t it. That was not a spoiler, don’t hate me, please.（*￣□￣*；
However, if you are an avid figure collector, you already know that the Crystal Dress series is all about giving our favorite heroines a heavy dose of glitz and glamor. Their most recent releases were the lovely ladies from Re:Zero kara Hajimeru Isekai Seikatsu.
But let’s come back to Aincrad. To be more specific, to the skies above Aincrad, where a once-in-a-lifetime lunar eclipse is happening! ٩(◕‿◕｡)۶
Asuna reaches higher and higher, rising on the winds of her newfound courage. She will work hard, survive, and overcome this world! Aincrad even looks pitifully small under her feet.
Take a moment to admire the gradient on the waning moon: does it remind you of anything?
If you answered “the endless horizon on episode 14,” congratulations, you got it right! Too specific? Seriously though, doesn’t it look like it? It’s made of the same texture as the sky, it’s the limit of the world, a point where Kayaba probably didn’t think players would reach.
But don’t EVER doubt the power of this warrior’s love. ( ─ ‿ ─)
The worry in that perfect face betrays the brave heart beating within. But her outfit surely doesn’t! Deep red like the passion of a Knight of the Blood Oath, the dress is what gives name to this piece. AlphaSatellite pulls out all the stops to turn PVC into silk. Their skill when it comes to crafting this illusion is the closest thing to real-world alchemy! (╭ ರ_⊙)
The sculpt of her outfit is absolutely stunning. I love how the fabric flows in the lunar breeze! And the movement isn’t lost in the details either: you can see the care they put into recreating even the flickering of the ribbons around her ankles.
Asuna — being a favorite in the Sword Art Online universe — has many figures, each one portraying a different side of her personality. However, out of all the figures released so far, I have yet to see one that feels as romantic as this one! (ृˊ◡˴⁎৲ु॰∘♡
And if you are like writer-san, who likes having love birds perch together on their display, take a look at this Kirito figure by ALTAiR (aka Alter, but handsome lads):
Like with all of their figures, they nail the essence of the characters they choose to portray. And it takes skill to get male characters right, since the best among them tend to be less expressive than the average anime heroine. Kirito is a particularly challenging one to get right, with such a limited color palette and a sense of understated chivalry — but you can feel it in this one! The mysterious Beater is set to release in March 2022; pre-orders are currently open, so come to our store!
As for Asuna, princess knight of the Moon Kingdom, her release is scheduled for December 2022. It’s a long way yet, but remember, this is a Shibuya Scramble figure! They are insanely popular (for obvious reasons) so don’t waste any time and place your order soon! Plus, you get points with every purchase, so each figure you buy helps continue increasing your collection! (๑❛ ▿ ◠๑ )
We hope you enjoyed this one!
Until next time! ヾ(＾∇＾)
