Accel World surprised me entirely, it was like a kick in the head!

The first couple episodes made me feel like i was going to dislike this anime. The first couple episodes will make you turn away probably, but please do yourself a favor and keep watching. The main character will probably disgust you and make you want to turn away as well, but again do yourself a favor and keep watching. Everything makes more sense once you watch more.

It seemed like it was going to resemble all the other cliche anime's out there about getting picked on and gaining power others don't have. read more

"Wildly entertaining but sometimes frustrating." Accel World in a nutshell.

Haruyuki Arita is the biggest loser in school. And the author did a darn good job portraying him to be one. He’s 3 feet tall, morbidly obese, and has a propensity to cry more than your 3-year-old nephew. His character design was too exaggerated; you can still be a loser while having the right body proportions you know?

However, the most popular girl in school, Kuroyukihime, takes an interest in Haru. She got him to install the program: "Brain Burst", which opened the gates to an alternate online universe called Accel World.

“Brain Burst”. This term read more

Recommendations

The story line involves the idea that you enter a world that is a virtual reality. They have similar art styles and the game play for the characters is different, but the real world repercussions are more drastic in one series then in the other, but they are still there.
Both of these series similar. Main characters fights in another "world" but have normal life in our world. And similar atmosphere of course.

Opening Theme

#1: "Chase the world" by May'n (eps 2-13)
#2: "Burst The Gravity" by ALTIMA (eps 14-23)

Ending Theme

#1: "Chase the world" by May'n (ep 1)
#2: "→unfinished→" by KOTOKO (eps 2-13)
#3: "Unite (ユナイト)" by Sachika Misawa (eps 14-24)
