Asuna, Kirito Beanie & Scarf Sets Will Fight Autumn Chills
posted on by Lynzee Loveridge
The hit anime series Sword Art Online and the Tokyo Otaku Mode store launched a collaborative merchandise project on June 20. The first item in that line-up are beanie and scarf sets based on Kirito and Asuna's outfits from the Aincrad arc. The Kirito design draws inspiration from his shoulder plate and coat.
The Asuna set is based on her Knights of the Blood guild outfit, with her signature red crosses used throughout the design. Her chest plate is also represented.
The beanies and scarves are expected to ship this fall and will be available worldwide. Each set retails for 9,700 yen (US$87) or can be purchased together for 18,500 yen (US$166).
The collaboration is meant to create merchandise for series fans that can be used in day to day life. Fans also get a say in the designs during the planning phases with Tokyo Otaku Mode directly.
