ANN wrote:One autumn day in 2046, Haruyuki has an encounter with Kuroyuki-hime, the prettiest girl in his school. For the middle school boy who is often bullied, the meeting changes his life. Through a mysterious piece of software she gave him, Haruyuki learns about the existence of the virtual Accel World. It was after that fateful encounter that Haruyuki of the lowest school caste becomes Burst Linker, a courageous knight defending a princess.

I read the manga, it's really good. I never read the original novel, but i expect great things from the anime. It will probably be my favorite this season \o/

I too recommend it, I don't really like the design of the fighting menu or whatever it is but the rest is really cool. waiting for episode 3

liking this so far, animation in the accel world looks like stuff out of actual games which makes it more interesting. Think the only weakness so far is the corny lines the main character keeps spouting, other than that, good stuff.

End of ep 2: the real fight is about to begin ;p

btw, i think this is the first series I can think of where the main character is actually fat.

ep 4 actually surprised me a bit, in a good way

Spoiler :
It was pretty obvious that Kuroyukihime liked him but there unlike a lot of series which either make the main couple's relationship status a vague and painful affair, she completely declares her love for Haru in about the most definite way possible (sacrificing her dream and her life for him).

Then another thing which made me happy, I was starting to get sick of Haru for continuing to cry whine all the time, but he finally manned up and went all out to defend her. Character development, that's what I'm enjoying about this series.

Then the twist with his friend being their hidden enemy actually did surprise me, I thought it was going to be someone else but anyway, next ep is looking good.

Spoiler :
I saw that plot twist coming a mile away. Who else would be able to install a backdoor without her knowing? The thing that surprised me was Kuroyukihime getting hit by that car. The best characters always get into the worst accidents :(

Spoiler :
I actually thought it could be him since ep 3 where Haru and Taku talked on that bridge before Haru went to direct link with Chiyu

Anyway, this is really good, I might check out manga

This series is good stuff.
Spoiler :
I suspected something was off about Taku's behaviour. Is he haunting for points to win kendo tournaments?

ep 5

Spoiler :
Good ep overall, loved Kuroyukihime's true form. lol and the laser show she unleashed when revealing it, I guess once you get to her level you get weapons of mass destruction.

I did get a bit annoyed out how Taku goes from complete jerk and then suddenly converts to the good side because of the miracle of friendship, it just felt really cheesy to me. It's probably because I've been reading manga with really hardass protagonists who completely destroy their opponents (achieving epic levels of awesomeness in the process) so seeing Haru crying (as always) and giving a speech on love and friendship sorta turned me off (way too many series with that already). Needs more badassery.

episode five was really beautiful (the part before he go the wings) and above else awesome
I hope this will have at least 26 episode if not more (6 knights have to be fought after all)
