This cube craft paper toy is the Kirito, based on the anime / manga series Sword Art Online, the papercraft was created by Enmanuel. There are SAO and ALO two versions. Kirito is the main protagonist of the Sword Art Online light novel series. His name, Kirito, was taken from his real name Kirigaya Kazuto.
Kirito is someone who is not good with words as said by Klein and can be quite direct. This is due to him not having many friendships and closing others off, because of his love for computers. As such he can come off as a rude person to others such as Lisbeth and Sinon. He sometimes actually seems to enjoy angering and teasing people as well. Also from time to time, Kirito can be quite overconfident thinking he can do things others can not.
However, Kirito is actually a kind person who just is misunderstood. Despite the general population opinion towards Beta Testers in SAO, he refused to abandon another player in trouble. This is only strengthened after the Black Cats of the Full Moon demise. He also comforts others who are scared or down such as Silica after she lost Pina. He claims to help some female players in SAO because they remind him of his sister, who he feels guilty for believing he forced her into kendo. These kind acts have earn him respect and affection from many girls. Kirito, unlike usual male heroes, is not very dense as he was able to tell Lisbeth was going to confess to him before Asuna interrupted.
Kirito is also a very emotional person and lets his emotions control him from time to time. The deaths of Sachi and Black Cats of the Full Moon haunted him until his marriage with Asuna. Sachi’s death in particular had a huge affect on his personaity, and motives; making him very distant from others for a while. He temporaily loses his will to live when Asuna’s character was killed by Heathcliff. This worries his friends and allies as Kirito is someone who would let guilt ruin his life if not comforted. He also tries to hide his abilities not wanting unneeded attention.
After escaping SAO, Kirito attempts to repair his relationship with Suguha, his cousin. This shows Kirito is now attempting to make up for his past mistake of ignoring her, showing a sense of maturity. Kirito, later in the series, is shown to be a calm and mature player who can be teasing as well.
Sword Art Online is a Japanese light novel series by Reki Kawahara, with illustrations by Abec. It has been adapted into three manga, an anime, and a video game.
In the year 2022, the Virtual Reality Massively Multiplayer Online Role-Playing Game (VRMMORPG), Sword Art Online (SAO), is released. With the Nerve Gear, a virtual reality helmet that stimulates the user’s five senses via their brain, players can experience and control their in-game characters with their minds.
On November 6, 2022, all the players log in for the first time, and subsequently discover that they are unable to log out. They are then informed by Kayaba Akihiko, the creator of SAO, that if they wish to be free, they must reach the 100th floor of the game’s tower and defeat the final boss. However, if their avatars die in-game, their bodies will also die in the real world. The story follows Kirito, a skilled player who is determined to beat the game. As the game progresses for two years, Kirito eventually befriends a female player named Asuna with whom he eventually falls in love. After the duo discover the identity of Kayaba’s avatar in SAO, they confront and defeat him, freeing themselves and the other players from the game.
Upon returning to the real world, Kirito learns that Asuna and a small group of SAO players has still not awakened yet. Following a clue about Asuna’s whereabouts in another VRMMORPG called Alfheim Online (ALO), Kirito also logs in there. Helped by his sister Suguha, he learns that the trapped players in ALO are part of a plan devised by Nobuyuki Sugō to perform illegal experiments on their minds to put them under his control including Asuna, whom he intends to marry in the real world in order to take over her family’s company. After Kirito stops Nobuyuki’s plans, he finally reunites with Asuna in the real world.
Soon after, Kirito plays another game called Gun Gale Online (GGO) to investigate the mysterious connection between it and deaths occurring in the real world. Assisted by a female player he meets in the game called Sinon, he eventually identifies and exposes the culprits who include some former members of a murderous guild he had previously encountered in SAO.
Kirito is later recruited to assist in the development of a state-of-the-art game, UnderWorld (UW), which has an interface that is far more realistic and complex than the previous games he had played. In UW, the flow of time proceeds thousands of times faster than in the real world. However, he ends up falling into a trap set by one of the murderers from GGO and wakes up inside the game, unable to log out, with his real self left in a comatose state. As he starts to question if he is the real Kirito or an artificial intelligence modeled after him, Asuna, Suguha and Sinon also log themselves into UW in an attempt to help him.
