Kirito, the dark hero of Sword Art Online

Let’s take a look at birthday boy Kirito

Last week was Asuna’s birthday so it is only fair that we celebrate her partner Kirito’s birthday this week. We all know Kirito as the main protagonist of Sword Art Online. He was chosen as one of the thousand beta testers for the closed beta of Sword Art Online, the first ever VRMMORPG for the NerveGear. His real name is Kirigaya Kazuto and he shortened it to Kirito to use as his gaming name. We meet Kirito at age 14 (beginning of Aincred Arc) and at the time of the Phantom Bullet Arc he is 17.

It is no wonder that Kirito is a two-time first place winner for the Top 10 Male Characters in the Kono Light Novel ga Sugoi! awards (for 2012 and 2013), and that he placed third in 2011 and 2014. Kirito is a man of few words and an absolute gaming genius. He prefers to be a ‘solo player’ (Not belonging to any guild in-game).

His weapons of choice in Sword Art Online are as follows: Anneal Blade on the 1st Level, Queen’s Knightblade on the 9th Level, Elucidator on the 50th level, Dark Repulser that was forged by Lisbeth, and Holy Sword Excalibur that Kirito obtained from the “Calibur Quest”.
