Cu-poche Asuna – Sword Art Online – by Kotobukiya

Here comes another Kotobukiya Cu-poche figure, Asuna from the famous series Sword Art Online. Today’s figure photos were inspired by cherry blossoms and spring. We don’t have cherry blossoms in our country so making my own for background is my only option.

I always picture Asuna with Kirito on her side, so I find it sad looking at her in these photos.


Cu-poche Asuna comes with a smiling face, simple and charming.

This is the smile that captured Kirito’s heart.

This is her sleeping face which I didn’t use for sleeping scene. I imagined this face plate of hers kissing Kirito if Kotobukiya will have him in Cu-poche form.

She’s like enjoying the fresh air and cherry blossoms scent.

She’s waiting for Kirito to come to join her for Hanami (flower viewing).






This was supposed to be a glaring face but I don’t really find the expression used to kill an enemy or to be used in battle mode. She looks like she’s pissed off at someone making fun of her.

IMG_0213-2My Cu-poche Asuna’s parts keep falling off every time I try to pose her in battle mode or just simply standing (without the use of base stand). I’m not sure if you are experiencing the same. But each time I try to attach her sword on her waist, some parts of her will fall off. Well in my case, those are her left arm and her entire lower extremity. I was disappointed with the quality because it limits her posing potential due to these issues.

Cu-poche Asuna is such an adorable figure and a wonderful thing to add in your SAO collection. Let’s hope Kotobukiya will make a Kirito Cu-poche so there will be someone she’ll be sitting beside with while watching cherry blossoms or watching the beautiful scenery.

Thank you for checking this out. I’ll see you on my next post! (ヾ(´・ω・`)


Special Thanks!

    Awwww that really looks like spring, I love this setup (‐^▽^‐)
    Asuna looks very nice as Cu Poche, her “tall” body shows her pretty outfit very well.
    The sleeping face and angry face are sweet, the angry face let her looks like a tsundere who lost her act lol. Kotobukiya definetely has to make Kirito for her.

    I’m waiting for them to bring a Kirito one out so I can get them at the same time. But my patience is wearing thin and I really want this cutie!

    I have another cupoche figure and I have trouble with bits falling off. However I’ve had the same experience with nendoroids so I didn’t know if it was just clumsy me haha.

    Either way this photo set is adorable and is tempting me to spend my savings :O
