No problem with a level one character that actually looks like a level one character. Had to laugh at the epic fail of special move head butt. This looks like it could be an excellent show depending on how they handle character backstory and interactions.

lulz this is looking really good. ive yet to see the overall point of the anime but just based on the animation, the action, and the whole burst idea im really interested. the funny thing is i was just talking about this kinda game being reality within 20-30 years. really neat concept

Haruyuki looks COOL!! I can't fathom why he wouldn't like that form of his.
And damn he's HAWT!! Yuki-senpai and Chiyu are fighting over him! Damn hot sphere-man.

Still, so far so good.

Chiyu already have a boyfriend, so she need to back down. Sheesh that's why I hate childhood friend character, they always think that the main character is their properties.

Done reading 10 chapters on Manga. I understand a lot about the features of Brain Burst Program and I say its awesome.

Kuroyukihime is so gorgeous and cute.I really can't get enough of her.

And oh, I found something so cute. This way of confessing, really ridiculous but most of all its so touchy. :)

my only worry is that they will deviate from the story line on the last few episodes of this show.
A original anime ending is possible however a S2 of another 24 episodes would be better to finish it off then.

Exactly and the consequences don't seem that bad yet. Remains to see how bad they do get once you lose.

i find it pretty interesting the avatars are based on insecuritues.

short and fat = tall and slim

small penis = big motorcycle

I really hate this type of MC... Really, a guy that can't even apologize even when he has to, or sees two friends fighting because of a misunderstanding and just stands there aghast instead of making things clear... this guy sucks, he's as worthless as he says... and are we really supposed to relate to him? don't make me laugh.

But rant aside, the show is good so far.

I do, I was kind of like him but not as pathetic. Only thing to relate for me is that I was like him in shape, maybe not height.

Generally I enjoyed the first two episodes, but my only real complaint was the fact that he was so small, I mean he was barely taller than the toilet or was smaller than it.

Wait, isn't the special move only used for one time only and it can't be used again?
The novels said that they just brawled in the end and Silver Crow has that advantage since he's a close combat type. Eh, minor change and it has more impact in the end.
Though this might affect how specials can be used in fights.

Still not quite used to the animation and design of Silver Crow but the fight was great. The music is not a slouch as well.
I only got it this time why Kurohime said that she was rejected lol despite reading about it last night.
Looking forward to the next episode. Will read the manga meanwhile(novels still not translated fully)

Didn't really intend to watch this at all, but Hadena just shoved the preair in my face, so why not. Turns out this show's so far the most enjoyable out of five series I've seen this season.

I could nag about many things, cliches, character designs etc. but when these two episodes finished I wanted more, and I had a blast watching them. Now begins the long wait, gah.. :P

So far I'm enjoying this show. The MC is a nice change of pace, I mean the bullied weak kid is nothing new. But the fact hes short and fat, he actually dose look like someone that would get picked on in school. ( I'm sure their are other shows that have this but I haven't seen one yet )

I know its just a really small detail of the show, but it really stands out to me from some reason, lol. Also the whole .Hack feel, I really enjoyed .Hack, I even got the ps2 games here for it. Being a gamer my self I would LOVE a game system like this :-D

We had fat guys who were in supporting roles, but when the last time we saw a fat protagonist?

Seems that 90% of male leads are always slim.

Good second episode as well. I both hope and expect that this series is going to get darker, and I might even have a look at the LN.

i have to agree with you there... it's another typical scenario where he won't be able to do even the simplest of things because of his insecurities... except in battle of course.

His character had better develop fast or it'l be ruining what could be an amazing show.

A special attack that does more then 3/4 life... This character needs to be nerved in the next patch ! badly -.-. Also since The biker guy is suppose to be weak without his bike , why not just pound him when he was off his bike and not give him a chance to get back on? Well the gaming system did seem interesting though.

I don't relate to any MC when I don't want to.
I agree with you though. He sucks as a man. But in this case, I just consider him has an interesting character design.

Because he's a pussy and his plan all along was to get him out of that bike, damage it and let the time expire. Might have been a good plan for a newbie but unluckily for him, the bike still worked.

Haruyuki's pig form is SOO CUTE! xD

This anime started quite good, but does anyone know why neither of the opening and ending was there? I was so exciting about that..

I was just going to say that. "C" was an over complicated let down. I feel that "Accel World" is going to be the same as well; an over complicated system where players fight one another in a meaningless plight for more power. Except that there is really nothing to like about our protagonist. Haru is super short, mega chubby, and giga wimpy. I almost lost it when he threw the lunch Cute Cat-girl Chiya made for him.

Anyways, the characters aren't really drawing me in and neither is the plot. At least throw in some fan service. ugh! I'll give it another 2 episodes to convince me other wise before I drop it.

Correct me if I'm wrong but I believe your incorrect about the bike not working not being a part of his plan.

The plan was to simply damage the biker guy enough that he, the MC, had more HP/Life then to wait for the timer to run out to win because he had more overall Life. (Also what you stated.)

But when it comes to "the bike still worked" part, he probably did have that though out as well, thus running into a building where the biker wouldn't be able to ride his bike up to. That's where it backfires for him as the biker had previously leveled up and used a point on a new skill or whatever allowing him to literally just wall ride up. That's what ruined his plan, he probably already assumed the bike would still work but could not go up the building.

Though I do wonder why he didn't just beat him when he was down there.

Also seems he's getting hate on a lot... feels like another Guilty Crown thread.

That's cause the creator also did GC if you look in the staff section.

Amazing, I got sucked into this. I love the idea of the show. Also Chiyu’s character is so cute!

So I didn't expect this to be so interesting, but it really surprised me. It's unique in its own way.

Also why all the hate for MC...? Making him fat and unattractive was good decision imho. This show can also be understood as a metaphor for what is happening in real life. Hime <3

That's all, Yumekichi11 already gave great analysis for this, and no doubt he will continue doing so, so there is no need for me to write too much...

No.
Yoshino is just the series writer who is also the writer for GC. The creator is Kawahara Reki.

As for comparisons to GC, aside from the above, Kaji Yuki who voiced Shu is doing Haruyuki here and both are beta leads.
/a/ even calls Haru 'Fat Shoe' though they call him Cartman too.

Good first two episodes; this episode was even better than the first, its got potential; will keep on watching, hopefully it gets even better. As for the MC i don't really mind that he is fat; i mean its different, tho i do agree with those who would say they went a bit far to put emphasis on how different he is; they could have just made him below average compared to the rest and it would have still had the same effect i think.

Great first two episodes. So glad it's 24 episodes. Sad they censored the middle finger at the end when the guy on bike called him a baka. If I had to pick a anime it reminds me of I would say the .hack series which is awesome itself hopefully Accel World can be the same way. 8/10

NO WAY! They never did patch Akuma's grab from Street Fighter that does do the 70%. It's still better than the 100% sure kill before the patch. Still I doubt they will for this application.

My mistake then but still a powerful staff member for his position. At least Haruyuki seems less bad than Shu. At least he looks more like me, while Shu is your average looking good young Tom Cruise.
