This concept is really cool and interesting, hmm I like it. The animation and art looks freaking awesome! This first episode looked great to me, now I am really looking forward to the rest of this series.

Eh its going to take a while to get used to how Haru looks. He looks like a complete ball, completely different from how everyone else looks. >_> His avatar thing in the accel world does look pretty cool though, hmm silver crow. Kuroyukihime <3 her already, she looks really beautiful and I can already tell her personality is gunna be great.

so we need to feel bad just because he's a short fat kid? not going to happen :s (at least not now)
i found his "nobody likes me" attitude just anoying (especialy when his friends came in)

oh well will give it a chance just because of the romance tag, but it's on thin ice...

I like it so far. (2 ep)
I am a fighting game player so Accel World is perfect for my taste.
Kuroyukihime is a real beauty, I like her butterfly design, altough I'm curious about her real avatar which she calls it's extremely ugly.

Not exactly liking the main character so far. Is it his weight? No, it's his damn design. To me, he just looks out of place compared to the more detailed cast. In comparision, he almost looks chibi. Ripped from a completely different show. I couldn't take him seriously let alone give sympathy. Typical role for VO Kaji Yuki though so all wasn't lost.

Anyway, it started off slow. Then the kick-ass holographic technology was introduced, always cool. The MMO game scenes are a convenient way of adding exciting fantasy scenarios but what really hooked me in was the lunchtime lounge scene.

I enjoyed Kuro's explanation of the burst link system and the sexual tension between her and MC's animal form is great.

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

scroll down a bit for the details - this was done by UTW's trans

the animation and story seemed pretty good, but I have a hard time taking this seriously with the main character being a fat little pig. actually the fact he's fat isn't the main thing that bothers me. he's a midget and he's a really round. the stark difference between everyone else.

and that cute girl, (the friend) why the hell is she hanging around him? and they are teasing she likes him? HAHA NO WAY. little tubby?

I want to keep watching this, but tubby the midget pig makes this hard.

Strange MC, but what a great first episode, I've very very high expectations now.
This definitely is unique.
I'm really looking forward to episode 2.
I almost never read discussions after I made my post, if you want to reply PM me or post on my profile page.

Yeah, i mean is nice not to have some cool looking guy for main role all the time but still that character doesn't even look real compare to the other characters. Are they unable to do a not so decent looking character without making him look like a cartoon inside a cartoon?

I like the whole concept of the show, it's very interesting. What I can't stand is the pacing. It's so bad I want to slap myself sometimes. Also, I'm not able to relate to the main character whatsoever. He just seems like a brat to me even though those other kids are mean to him. His reactions were also really cliche and not convincing enough. And seriously, that girl who he meets should totally be ugly. Someone who plays computer games like that can't look the same as their avatar lol.

I was a little bit skeptical about the MC at first. The design is so cartoony while the rest of the characters are pretty standard anime fare. The further into the episode that I got, the more I realized that, as the story is being told from his perspective, it may be that the exaggerated look of the character is more how he perceives himself than what he is really like. Let's face it, this kid has extreme self-esteem issues, to the point that he risks alienating his few friends. When he made knocked aside Chiyuri's bento and made her cry, I was about ready to give up on him. But as the story went on, I realized that the level of self-loathing this kid has makes it nearly impossible for him to believe that anybody could like him. After all, he hates himself, why would anyone else feel any different?

When little miss perfect comes into the picture, it seemed a stretch, but it is clear that she has some sort of agenda. She obviously has been scouring the game areas for top players at various games, and her advice about how to deal with his bully was spot on! I still don't know if he can trust her, but he doesn't trust himself, so I can't see why that would matter to him!

All-in-all, the combination of the fantastically realized virtual world, the none-traditional protagonist, and the overall feeling of quality in the story have me looking forward to this series.

Same voice actor for Haru and Shu from Guilty Crown. I hope that doesn't indicate how this will turn out....

It's.......interesting. Some things about I liked, some I didn't. First episode does make me conclude that I think i'll be more into Sword Art Online than this, but i'll keep watching it.

TBH for your spoiler it's more of her family and what Arita sees in her that her family does not. That's why she likes him. He also told her stuff no male or person did. That's later on of course.

Decent first episode. Animation is wonderful. Hopefully it won't disappoint.
Not to thrilled about the main characters design, but I imagine it will be explained later.

Did I miss something? Who is Araya? Or will that be reveled later as well?

Excited for second episode!

A rather unique MC. I'm surprised Kuroyukihime took an interest in him but it was almost expected to some extent. She must have something planned or something. I hope the MC develops well over the next couple of episodes.

Haruyuki is a rather unconventional main character. Well, at least visually. The art and animation is better than I expected for the anime, after having read some chapters of the manga adaptation of the novel.

Manga is only up to nine chapters as far as translations go.
Anime will make way more progress, so pretty excited about this one but I do not like Haru's voice (Guilty Crown Shu, the show was bad and his damn voice reminds me of it) and Haru is one hell of an idiot, he already annoyed me again and he will stay an idiot in later scenes.

I'm only on episode 2 right now but the show may turn out like Ao no Exorcist anime or FMA

A videogame genre anime! What else could I possibly want? The game/global net being hooked up to people's neural system would be too scary for me to envy, but virtual reality is definitely a cool way to control time.

Haru looks more like a cartoony traveling partner, but fat people can be difficult to draw, I guess...Besides him, the style is very pretty. It's exciting to see a new style of main character, as well. He definitely has a lot of character development available for him.

Don't understand how the main character is half the size of his friends (although I didn't read the manga).

Is the anime going to be mecha? The ending made me assume it will be.

Anyways, I watched it 'cause it's under SAO's recommendations. Anyways, the anime is nice but the genres aren't my favorite, so I'm dropping it. Animation and art are well done. Main character kinda looks weird, no offence. LOL Black Snow Princess or whatever she's called, is really beautiful and interesting.

The main character is annoying as ****. I know it's some sort of symbolism to find one's own inner strength and become a better person but the dude is just annoying character, in both design and personality.

Not a bad start, a first class case of pestering but with a slight change of having someone who's highly popular take him in! The Accelerated World concept is rather nice and could get quite interesting!

Looks good so far so lets see what's next!

Haven't watched the manga, giving the anime a try. Having watched through the end of this episode, still not quite exactly sure what the problem with Haruyuki is. And what is this hype about the "Accel world" and "Burst Link"? What does the social camera have to do with all those?
How does Kuroyukihime figure out the situations with Haruyuki? What is this random battle at the end?
So many questions unanswered....

Never thought starting this anime O_O

AWESOMENESS! that BGM oh my good this series has really good music. Cool designs they have for making Haruyuki in chibi form. Still, I don't get why Haruyuki throw those bento way that Chiyu made for him specially. Chiyu seems kind of like "Girl Next Door" That blue light dimension "Burst Link" it's pretty awesome kind of like matrix. So he can get in that virtual world anytime he wants.

OP does spoil this series a little.

I have couple of questions

1. If bento was made by Taku why don't he noticed it?
2. What is Kuroyuki hime's real name?
3. Those social camera's act's like order of somekind?
4. How did Chiyo knew that Haruyuki met with Kuroyuki.
5. How Haruyuki activated "Burst Link" or what really is that random battle?

OMG that kuroyuki got blood in her head. DAMN! you Ariya. I can see theme of this anime is bullying and Haruyuki probably try to become stronger or something to overcome his fears.

I think this episode still get's 5/5 we probably can see these questions answered in next episode.

This is the first anime I see where the main character is a meatball , also the idea of a pig as his avatar is great.

It was interesting and I loved it especially in the end.

The song from the end was good and from what I've seen I think this anime is going to be great.

The MC has the mind of a very, very special teenage boy. I mean he linked his thoughts with a hot girl that he likes, and somehow he manages not to have any weird perverted thoughts that would have slipped into my mind.

Well I'm not saying anything new but what a 'different' protagonist. I'm interested in seeing growth (in character) for Haru. I just finished Mirai Nikki so after seeing a pitfall lack in Yuki's personality growth, I'm not looking for much.
Does anyone else find it weird that Haru is the only character in that game which doesn't look like themselves... he obviously game himself the nickname pig.

I am looking forward to seeing more of the anime because it is actually so cool (someone hurry up and invent the stuff in it). And the animation really is spectacular.
Pirates are evil? The Marines are righteous? These terms have always changed throughout the course of history! Kids who have never seen peace and kids who have never seen war have different values! Those who stand at the top determine what's wrong and what's right! This very place is neutral ground! Justice will prevail, you say? But of course it will! Whoever wins this war becomes justice!

So the plot is about a fat guy who meets a damn cute girl :D (impossible in real world),and i think they've made the boy too fat xDD

Yeah, the main character upon first seeing him nearly made me not watch lol.
