"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.

I'm not hatin, I'm just trying to say that this was not good.

We watch anime for enjoyment, however, there wasn't much to enjoy about this anime. Rather, there are more things that irked me than things I liked.

Like SAO, the series started off opening a gate of opportunities. A secret world exists where points you earn can be used in real life. But what the heck, let's just turn this to a harem anime instead.

Where da hell did they come from?

The one thing that really ticked me off was the main character, the fat guy. I see that they're trying to pull off a unique 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

#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)
