Leafa on a floating tire

In Sword Art Online Leafa was the avatar of Suguha in Alfheim Online and part of the Sylph class. She won many battles due to her high-speed and her Wind element Magical abilities. She is one of the fastest Sylphs in the game. In the game (Alfheim Online) she starts to develop feelings for Kirito but when she realize that, in real life, she Suguha, is his adopted cousin/sister she was initially shocked but she recovered, worked through her feelings and took on the role as supportive sibling from there on.

Even a hardened elfish warrior like Leafa needs to relax, and here she is in a bikini relaxing on a floating tire on water. She looks so happy, comfortable as if she is enjoying the peace of the water.

A blue base is included with the figurine to represent the water.

Overall: A Chilled-out 8.5

Paint Job – 8
The paint job is not bad at all, from the red of her nails to the coloring of her eyes. Nice work on the hair as well

Sculpting – 8
They did a great job with the sculpting although the feet could have been done a little better. The little dent her hand makes in the tire is very well done.

Design – 9
Nice design, they really blow life into the figurine. The green and white bikini compliments her. She looks just like Leafa from the anime.

Display Worth – 9
She will look awesome among other Sword Art Online figurines like Silica.

Verdict

Leafa on a floating tire is well made and reminds one of the Sword Art Online EXTRA Edition OVA where all the characters appear in swimming clothes. It is nice to revisit the episode through the figurine. They went through a lot of trouble to capture the essence of Leafa. With this figurine the smile says it all, after a workout in Alfheim Online, a relaxing float on the water might just be the thing
