It’s frequently seen with many a series, yet Sword Art Online hasn’t been exploiting its heroine for various marketing purposes like the majority, until now – the heroine falls a tier to be another expendable item.
“Asuna”, as she’s so-called, has now joined the ranks of fanfare service character as can be seen above – with pantsu in particular being her specialty since she seemingly hasn’t much of a chest to show off even if she makes any such futile effort. The usual underwear clad suggestive imagery is beginning to fill magazines – as are the bathing scenes and provocative extras which went previously withheld for no apparent reason.
Further, as one can see immediately below, she’s to arrive in the form of a tempting bed sheet at the few week away event of Comiket 82 – and on a side-note, it appears she’s to make this debut alongside her unspoken lover as well who is to also be available for the fujoshis, showing that Sword Art Online is eager to please every otaku.
And perhaps this may prove as another successful front to take advantage of character physique for profit, yet Sword Art Online is set to become a massively scaled mobile RPG game – which if proves anything like The iDOLM@STER’s venture into such, one aspect it could mean is a variety of promotional character card artwork released every while or so, something which would be quite favorable with certain female characters.
The formula isn’t very family friendly – yet it seems with pantsu comes prosperity.
