Sword Art Online: Ordinal Scale Reveals Asuna’s Bare Chest

Written by HotAnime

Last week, the Sword Art Online the Movie: Ordinal Scale anime film hit the shelves as a DVD rental in Japan, and some fans hurried to pick up a copy to confirm whether the bath scene reveals Asuna’s plot. The film’s director Tomohiko Ito and fellow staff members teased in July that the Blu-ray and DVD release of the film might reveal Asuna’s nipples during the bath scene.

Fans are rejoicing because the rental release does include a brief reveal of Asuna’s nipple around the 25:52 mark as she is getting out of the bath. The scene also reveals her buttocks.
