Sword Art Online: Alternative Gun Gale Online Inspires P-chan Airsoft Gun

posted on by Jennifer Sherman
Anime News Network's merchandise coverage sponsored by Tokyo Otaku Mode.

Tokyo Marui revealed on Wednesday that it is releasing an airsoft gun inspired by Llenn's P-90 gun in the Sword Art Online: Alternative Gun Gale Online anime. Fans will soon be able to wage their own battles as Llenn because the limited-edition replica is slated to ship this summer.

The real-world P-chan, which is part of Tokyo Marui's automatic electric gun standard-type series, will include two pink magazines. In addition, the original light novels' author Keiichi Sigsawa is providing a short story booklet for the release. Sigsawa and Kōji Akimoto, who cooperated on the anime's weapon designs, supervised the color for the airsoft gun.

Although the detailed reproduction may appeal to fans of all ages, Tokyo Marui specified that people under 18 years of age may not purchase or use the P-chan airsoft gun.

The anime is also inspiring a figure of Llenn holding P-chan.

Previous anime to inspire airsoft guns include Ghost in the Shell: New Movie, Strike Witches 2, and Golgo 13.
