All That's Epic: When we first met Asuna Yuuki in the second episode of popular anime, Sword Art Online, we got an impression of her that was nothing short of untrue to who she really is. We saw a person who was shy, closed off, and generally kept to herself, trying only to survive while trapped inside the “death game” MMO, Sword Art Online. Throughout the course of the series though, Asuna evolved completely. She broke out of her shell and became the frontwoman in Sword Art Online’s most prestigious guild, Knights of the Blood Oath. We also saw how fully capable she is of becoming completely selfless as she falls in love with Kirito and even lays her life on the line for him.
