I don't like mecha but the main character is fat. That's rare so I guess I'll keep watching for a bit more.

Red king 's siege mode is splendid and she is cute too >.<

Been waiting for this for a long time now :D was so awesome. Great visuals, animation keeps getting better and better nowadays.

Kuroyukihime is soooooooo hot.

Haruyuki really grew on me in the manga, the two are really likeable together. Give him a chance people, its a nice change from your generic everyday protagonist.

Decent enough start. Premise and technology is interesting... enough to keep me around for a bit.

MC is ok.. he at least has some reasons to be down. Low self esteem and bullying are rough to deal with. No idea how anyone can say he is well off. It's not like Guilty Crown or Future Diary where the guy just whines because he can... they at least set it up.

Too much ANGST from the MC, watching it mostly for the visuals and the two girls for now 4/5.

Quite a lot of shows about escapism lately, wonder if there is anything left to be told.

Holy mindfuck! I am confused about the ending :S Like what the?

I'm sure everyone hates Haru, but IMO he's a likeable character, he's not one of those typical MC's. So I am satisfied.

4/5

visualy this is awesome, plot-wise seems okayish, interesting at least. Nothing particular against the main guy, but not interested in him at all.

Chubby character turns to a piggy in VRMMO o.O

I thought he would make his character looks cool in VR, but whatever =P


Exactly what I was wondering.

Anyway, this show looks very promising.

Your typical cliche first episode. But I liked it. And we don't see lot of chubby guys for a protagonist.

Anyway hope it will not become the next Guilty Crown.

4/5

I got some GC vibes from this, not good vibes that is. But well, it was fairly interesting introduction, i'm okay with guy being fat and bullied but at least make him of normal height (because this is taking it too far) and look like rest of characters.
He doesn't need that pig avatar to be honest, he himself would work as one better than rl world character. It's the ultimate truth.

I just realized that the main characters are all 13-14, which I did not expect.
Good introduction, and very interesting, will see more.

Pretty awesome world and technology, the virtual reality thing was interesting, the music and the seiyuu cast is great as well.

Though the story is kind of cliché with that loser boy who gets the attention of the hottest and popular girl of the school -.- but let's see what's coming next :)

Finally some originality and uniqueness, I loved it.

I'm a bit bothered by the protagonist's design though, but I think I'll get used to it. It's part of his low popularity after all. Nice to see the look on the other people's faces when he came to see one of the most popular girls in the school and she even expected him. ^^

The brain burst and accelerated world concept is very interesting. In the end he still connected to the global net, the idiot. Looking forward to the next one to see what happens. Seems like some sort of fighting game.

^ well, he carelessly connect to the global net because his mom can't give him allowance..and..probably, he forgot what kuroyukihime said..

VA problem lol

Haru has been alienated(rejection) not only in the Anime but also in reality(in this forum) .Later he will get rejected in the accel world after he get the xxx..... poor Haruyuki >.<"
Somehow I felt that the studio really chosen the right guy to do his character.Target for bully ...

oh god no, i dont want this forum to turn into the Guilty crown forum where there were countless wars between the fans and haters, i may sound like a total douche but i just want this to be a peaceful forum where you can discuss the episodes without soo much hate

i see no problem with kaji yuki, he is a good VA and is good at voicing shy and timid characters while also voicing some cocky overconfident characters, he is sort of an all rounder type, but also i noticed that kaji yuki voices alot of characters who are weak at first who then turn into badass heroes/characters

People like to bash series to make them feel superior -> typical bullying mentality.
bla bla bla
The endless debate between fans and haters. At one point, after spending a lot of time on MAL, you just realize it's totally pointless.

Like other said it's going to take a bit to get used to the MC.

For now I can't understand what went through the creators heads when they decided to make the MC a short, fat, round kid. Atleast make him normal height fat kid.

Still, it was an interesting first ep. I liked it.

Looking forward to this series since the chicks are cute :D

Good start. The plot's already generic, and so is the whole cast. The only cool things about this show is fatso <3 (design, not personality) and the setting with that technology. The show has potential and will probably be worth watching, but I doubt it'll be great or something.

There is also the Miku holographic stuff but yes if we had this all would have their harems and yes there would be less sex crimes let alone murder if you can kill and your neurons inside your brain are satisfied enough not to have you kill an alive being.......sure RIGHT ON! Would be sure great.

Suffice to say Accel World can inspire stuff but first it should have a live version, although I am not sure how that will work out. Then from there stuff can happen. Loads of movies had stuff from them happen in 30s so why not?

Suffice to say Accel world gives out the ideal in idealism in making virtual reality and its benefits.

Ah I knew it was a game after all, maybe he forgot to read the glaring description on the executable file before he installed it? Maybe that was the Princess Snow Black warning not to connect to the globalnet all about? Very interesting, looks like augmented/enhanced reality is not enough, we'll go through accelerated virtual reality as well, i.e. over 9000! XP XD

Wow this one really accelerated it's own from those other spring 2012 releases. It's really good. WOW. I just picked the right mainstream anime that i'll be watching this spring. Excellent 5/5.

i think the fact that the main character is a socially low person is good, because
we are obviously going to see some amazing character development by the end
CANT WAIT FOR NEXT EP

Agreed Google glasses is mostly voice controlled. The sixSense 3 yrs ago at TED talk seems more advanced interface-wise compared to the students': http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nZ-VjUKAsao
The AR concept of merging blue world and accel world is nice. Haruyuki's design is daring... I sympathize with him but im not sure I like him yet. Personality's different from Shu fortunately, as Shu's too passive & submissive, its anti-climatic and annoys a lot of viewers. But Haruyuki is driven by fear of bullying, at least that gives more drama. The pig & his real form are both animated well, watch how pig struggled off the platform, go Sunrise!

That was confusing as hell. They did not go into detail about the Social Cameras, what Accel World is and how it is created from the Social Cameras, all this technology and the world link. Wont like it until I understand all that shit. 3/5
