This is Meshi, here to serve up another heaping helping of figure reviews.
Leafa is the avatar of Suguha, main heroine of the Fairy Dance Arc and IRL sister of the protagonist Kirito. 
Take a gander at the fastest Sylph in the land--if you can catch her, that is!

The sculpt presents Leafa as she flutters down onto branches poking out of the water for a moments rest. Her billowing cape and ponytail, not to mention the translucent wings, capture the battle-ready essence of this nimble nymph.

As to be expected of Leafa, the view from the front is... physically imposing. Better to avert your eyes to admire her unique hairstyle or the detail lavished on her sword.

An object in motion tends to stay in motion, and Leafa looks ready to tumble over breast-first. Overcoming gravity to take flight is one thing—mastering inertia when you land is another!

Her vest is tied tight like a corset, boosting her boobies with +5 charm. You know, the proto-maid cafe Anna Miller's uses this exact same technique. Suguha would look great in that uniform! 

This is one pose you don't get to see everyday. They call it “fantasy" role-playing for a reason, folks. The translucent wings are shaded to reflect the greens of her outfit, adding to the serene fairy tail feel. 

Her spandex bottoms keep her modest but can't shield her curves from piercing eyes. The way her stockings stop, then start again, creates a new type of absolute territory. To unexplored lands we go!

If you were a player in the field and looked up at the right moment, this is exactly what you'd see flying above! Quick, which hot key is mapped to “Print Screen?” 

The THACO --To Hit Armor class 0 (Zero)-- provided by her armored brassier is driving me wacko! Following the outside curve of her chest we can see that her clothing is constricting her bosoms close together, but should her armor break, watch out! They'd scatter to the wind like piglets in a tornado.

ALfheim Online at sunset further accentuates the fullness of her breasts along with the detailed textures of her collarbone and clothing. Leafa makes the perfect traveling companion, and at the very least will sooth your eyestrain after marathon gaming sessions!
