Comedian Recreates Llen's Attack for Sword Art Online: Alternative GGO Commercial

posted on by Lynzee Loveridge

In the first episode of Sword Art Online: Alternative Gun Gale Online, the pink-clad Llen makes an impression by using her small size to advantage to ambush enemy players. The scene establishes that even though Llen is small in size, she's a formidable opponent regardless.

Staff decided to hone in on this scene as a marketing point for the release of the anime's first Blu-ray and DVD, but with a twist of course. They hired comedian Esper Itō to recreate the scene in live-action. (Note, the linked video is region-locked, a region-free version is embedded below)

The first Blu-ray and DVD volume of Sword Art Online: Alternative Gun Gale Online was released on Friday. The anime premiered on April 7 in Japan. Aniplex of America is streaming the series as it airs on Crunchyroll and Hulu.

The story follows Karen Kohiruimaki, a 183-centimeter-tall (6-foot-tall) college student who's insecure her height, and is bad at dealing with people in the real world. She enters the world of Gun Gale Online with her avatar, Llenn, who is less than 150 centimeters (5 feet) tall and wears all pink. She meets a beautiful, brown-skinned female player who goes by Pitohui. They hit it off, but one day Pitohui pressures her to participate in "Squad Jam," a team Battle Royale variation of the Bullet of Bullets tournament.
