Asuna is one of the most famous beautiful anime characters of Isekai anime. She’s a down-to-earth and a strong female lead. Asuna is the complete opposite of a damsel in distress. Known to be a powerful player, she’s also got one of the best appearances in anime. 

Here are 7 facts about Asuna Yuuki that you should know:

1. Asuna’s Avatar Name

Asuna Yuuki used her own name in the game world of Sword Art Online. She was an inexperienced gamer, which was probably the reason for her choosing her actual name in the game. Anyone who’s entered the world of gaming knows it’s a bad idea to use their actual names. Even Kirito used an alias name instead of his real one.
