THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
So far not bad, the episode was very nice in element intros and new characters along with a fresh new plot. I liked Chiyu's teasing slutty expression in the spoiler
About the fan service, while it was not bad we get BONUS HIME whom is shown also in the bath in the spoiler
Nothing special with the loli on that end. She stays toweled but Haruyuki got a taste of her DFC in the spoiler
About the beginning, I was very surprised but more shocked that the avatar can have real blood in the spoiler
Once easily see that Haruyki is really in distress of his weakness in the spoiler
About Haruyuki meeting the loli, it was a nice start of that segment. Starting out with the school and a strong title of temptation. Which reminds me of how an amazing job Nisemonogatari Vol 2 did with Shinobu in terms of sexual enticement. A rather short nice conversation occurs in the spoiler
A) The initial point of meeting in the spoiler
B) Once the eating comes around Scarlet Rain’s face in the spoiler
C) FINALLY THE BATH PART! HA! Well what’s really nice of it is seeing Scarlet Rain’s true face and nature in the spoiler
That I really appreciated along with the shocked face of the loli in the spoiler
About before the fight, well it tends out that Scarlet Rain IS NOT GOING TO TAKE SHIT! It was obvious from the spoiler
About the fight, well I liked a lot the intro of Scarlet Rain in the spoiler
Let’s do that the ABCs of the base itself, rather shown well in this episode.
A)It has anti-personal flame thrower in the spoiler
B)It has A MEGA BEAM CANNON in the spoiler
C)Oh! But it’s not over. Get this! It has Macro missiles in the spoiler
So one can see that base is pretty INSANE in one word. Moreover it’s not over after all this. Comes to worse the loli can get out and target you with a gun in the spoiler
About Haruyuki and Hime. Very nice part after all the shit he went in that fight. Good thing it resolved fine. Hime’s expressions in the spoiler
About thee end of the episode, the following,
That’s what I am talking about! THAT’S IT! The crazy new plot shit coming up! Seeing that shit tear up people and the loli seeing it in the spoiler
About the preview, 2 things I am looking forward to. 1. Is Hime with the loli in the spoiler
BTW Image Stitches done in the BLOG:
JACKPOT! Tomoko looks stunning there but more a Scarlet Rain herself and Hime is stunning as usual.
I did exceptionally some GIFs in the BLOG:
but guess get this, I perverted them a little more than the situation was to be. A fine example of ecchi made custom for others. Marvel at how setups can change in their meaning when arranged differently.

Scarlet Rain's Accel avatar looks pretty much like her true self... does that mean she doesn't have any insecurities?
BTW, I think Haru is a lolicon... back when he dreamed about Chiyu and Kuroyuki he said it was a nightmare, but right there on the bath he started fantasizing about the loli, if I read the scene correctly...

It felt like this episode was over in an instant.
Changes in the op are great! They added the glasses for Taku and took some clothes of Kuroyukihime... changes are beautiful :D
I am surprised how this show kept all of its good traits up to this episode! The real life conspiracies still have the detective feel, Haru kept his guard up again, that was really cool. Plus, it's all still very emotional in a very good way. Of course a beauty like Hime has a sour love story in her background... And Haru took the initiative with her - grabbed her hand and talked honestly about his feelings - for maybe the first time. Plus in the same time, new battle tactics are developing... I just cant get enough of this show!
The only bad thing about it is that the protagonist is gaining levels too fast, we are getting clother to the end. I would have loved to see hundreds of episodes of this, but I guess that's not going to happen...

^more thoughts and pics stuff here.
Red King the bipolar loli was pretty cool. And it's nice to see that Haru is actually improving at a reasonable rate, both in the Burst Link game and in his relationships with other people (namely when he supported Kuroyukihime emotionally)
That new enemy seems like a complete badass. Judging from the OP and from shounen plotlines, Haru will probably figure out a way to skydivebomb it. Hope to see more of it.

pika2000 said:Eh, really? that does change the meaning... hmm, I guess I should switch fansubs... so which do you recommend for Accel World?
I'm guessing you're watching hadena's fansub. That was a mistranslation. He said "saitei da." He felt that he's the worst/most horrible person to be dreaming about doing stuff with those two. Doesn't mean it's a "nightmare." ;-)

Good episode,so the Loli result to be the red "king", i really dont expect that.
She was kinda cute at the beginning making cookies and even a bath together!!...and then everyone became nightmare!! Another crazy women!! her change to her real face was funny!!
The fight between them was not bad had its moments but she really is powerful...also FALCON KICK V2!
i have the feeling that she may be like she may know the first red king maybe his real brother??
But well seems next episode they fight a monster!! Going to be fun!!
BTW That yandere face!!
Gifs and more on the club!!:http://myanimelist.net/forum/?topicid=445583&show=0#post1

Lol time skip 2 level ups
This show has potential to be good but the script writers are aweful. Maybe it's just the subs idk. Also everything in the show happens too conveniently.
I want Ash Roller Back, that guy was a super badass.
Also I'm guessing the First red king was the red head from before that was always talking to Kuroyukihime in the first few episodes.

belatkuro said:tsubasalover was right and it is indeed Rina Hidaka.. anyway, i wonder what it takes to succeed and be the next king of a color.. first to reach level 9? she doesn't seem to be someone who's related with the previous Red Rider.. she seems to want to meet Black Lotus not for revenge but to cooperate for a significant threat in the game.. that berserk black avatar thingie that eats everyone..
Scarlet Rain is here(seiyuu who?). Quite a difference from her true age and how she really thinks and act. Says something about being a Burst Linker and spending that much time in the other world, being able to reach level 9 and all.
The battle was a bit of a letdown. It was thrilling in the novels. Didn't quite feel how strong a King should be. That heat blast should have obliterated a large area far away. And did she really just move by 50cm?
First mention of Red Rider, the first Red King.
And fuck yeah, CD in the end. We'll hear more of that monster next time.

Accel World is getting better and better with every passing week. Let's try a new review style.
- Haru having that special patch training was a good start. Trying to evade bullets? Creative way to train one's speed although it was probably ridiculously painful to get hit by those bullets. Way to go, little porky.
- That scene was followed by some information regarding territories and the different Legions fighting over them. Interesting, interesting.
- And there she is- the yandere girl who stole the whole freakin' episode. The scenes where she showed her cute side were hilarious. Of course it took Haru only a few minutes to finally understand whom he's really talking to and the subsequent reveal of Scarlet Rain's real personality was inevitable. We got a nice glimpse of her power and her Immobile Fortress so that alone would make for a solid episode.
- But we even got a few HaruxKuroyukihime moments and even more information regarding the first red king (Red Rider iirc) and what seems to be a remorseful Black Lotus.
- As it's usual for Accel World, this episode too ended with an intriguing cliffhanger. Who might that black beast be? Maybe the one seen in the opening? Who knows? I for sure am curious to know but I can wait since we're not even halfway through. All in all 5/5
Next week Black Lotus and Scarlet Rain meet. Needless to say that I can't possibly wait for it.
