THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
In Yokohama, Kuro and her friend enjoying the beach together.

When Kuro and her friend separated, there are two burst linkers came to challenge her. Or rather, the blue one vs. Kuro. After an informal fight, she asked Kuro to meet up at the real world. They are very too naive about the burst link world (or rather, they just wanted to make it a peaceful world), but their request was for her to see their master, who said there's something going on that their goal cannot come true.

Kuro didn't have the time to buy presents for her friend, though. Kuro feeling guilty because she saved her from feeling not know who she is in real life because she was in "that" world too long.

The master is drunk and being pessimistic. KuriKin? Kuro knows him?

Next ep. against that "monster".

Sorry, not digging this episode. Need to get back to the main plot, side stories at this point of the anime gets on my nerves.

We're missing out on the race for side stories. That's tragic.

Death by Barraging animation was a bit disappointing. The fight was cool though.
And how long was the red guy, the master, in the Unlimited Field? The girls and KYH just dived there and it looks like he was in the bar for quite a while.
Anyways, it seems like a pointless side story but it kind of ties with the main story. Referring to the yellow guy riding a monster. He's in the OP with Noumi and some other guys.
Let's see how this goes.

Gah, next weeks another side story episode? They arnt too bad, but I want to see what happens in the main story! They only reason Im not completely raging over this is because I read a spoiler of why Chiyu did what she did. If I hadnt I dont know how I could have handled another week of suspense.

If you really want to fit in, just put Legend of the Galactic Heroes in your top 5 and have it be the only 10-rated anime in your list.

Cute episode! It kinda sucks that the main storyline is left in a cliffhanger, but it's not like we don't know this is coming. Just like the first half of the series, it's side story in between. Kuroyukihime needs some screentime too.

Kuroyukihime in love is very cute. And she's reminded of Haru when she saw the andagi shop. So adorable. :D

The battle is a meh. They didn't even bother animating Black Lotus' "Death by Barraging." Oh well, no biggie as AW is not a fighting anime anyway.

And this episode is ripe with doujin material. Unbelievable! :D

Come doujin writers, start your engine. LOL.

Good episode. I enjoyed it, and like any AW episodes, it seems to end quicker than I thought.

Next episode is still this side story, just like Aqua Current episodes. Not unexpected, but we should see some cool stuff.

What a nice episode for some yuri.

Well, overall, it was an average episode imo with some brief fighting scenes. That level 7 definitely knows Kuroyukihime though and wondering what sort of history they have..maybe a new love rival for Haru?

Hmm...

Right...

I guess you may see the anime/genre differently. To me, it's not a fighting anime. It's more of a school life anime. Compare this show to something like Saint Seiya, Ashita no Joe, Fist of the North Star, Hunter x Hunter, etc. If one picked AW expecting action/fighting, I'm sure one would be disappointed.

This episode was actually good and fun to watch.
Are those two girls that Hime meet kind of yuri?

Megumi is probably another " burst linker " as well, someone did hide herself and look like her in the white skirt.

Where do you read these novels of Accel World ?

Can't believe the producers trolled us with a side story this ep. When it was getting good in the main story too!

Still enjoyable nonetheless, love the yuri fanservice!

First half was really disappointing filler, especially after what happened last week. Though the end of the episode led me to think either this monster they're going to fight, the Burst Linker who knows Kuroyukihime, or Megumi is going to tie very neatly in with the main story as we gear up for the conclusion. We're running out of episodes for things to happen though, which is why this filler was all too disappointing for the most part. I'm leaving it open to get better though because there's certainly a way this can all tie together.

I really wish people would wait for the side story to finish before labling it pointless, for all we know the "Monster" could be related to Nomi in some way I mean he claimed he was not a burst linker so it is possible that he may be whatever this monster this is.
Just a thought.
Also Yuri, lots and lots of Yuri!!!

Omg. Best episode. Just continue on like this. Dont ever show Haruyuki again...

Kidding aside, I really enjoyed this episode. 23 minutes of Hime ftw. Looks like their allies are increasing. Was wondering if it's really ok to cut the original plot and put in a side story like this but I guess it wasn't that bad of a decision. They can't possibly put it after the last battle between DT vs Silver Crow. They can put it as an OVA but I guess they will lack materials to Animate to reach 24 episodes.

Back to the episode, Hime so strong ftw. Btw that Megumi, is she an enemy? Somebody spoil me please.

Not bad episode to be side story,a 24m episode of full Hime is always welcome!!

Hime in swimsuit really looks awesome!! Megumi also not bad,and even got some Yuri there with boobgrabbing and some lotion....doujin incoming!!

Besides that nothing much,the 2 lolis Ruka and Mana are cute!! Megumi also crying was sad but seems also a burst linker...what a surprise!! "sarcasm"

Well seems Hime knows their master probably a minion once,next episode they will fight that dragon rider so probably after that episode will be back to the main plot.....will see

BTW that Lotion scene!!

By the looks of it the series will end with the DT arc, looks like at least 2-3 weeks more of this side story before going back to main plot, oh well at least I dont have to see Chiyuri's face for a few weeks

A subplot right on the cliffhanger is so lame...

That said, Kuroyuki is 1000 times a better MC than Haru, if only the subplot itself was interesting... what a waste.

Ah, a subplot. This episode was kinda filler-ish, but it seems like it's leading us to something big and exciting. I suppose I won't mind watching some more episodes pertaining to this subplot. Of course, I still prefer the main plot, more than anything.

I don't suppose Megumi is a Burst Linker? I don't see her as a main character, though; I think she's just there to give off the "yuri vibes".

So Megumi is a burst linker after all? Anyway, any episode centered around KYH is always nice, but i'd rather that they get on with the main story...

Crikin's drunken reaction upon seeing Black Lotus was hilarious.

THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
By the time it does reach half point I was sure of FILLER TIME! That’s for sure. I was not too sure at first in case of things changing suddenly. Seems this episode has half Hime/Megumi time with fan service/drama and the other half being the MOST MOE KIDS in this show. Truly Yuniko might make a run for it. They are so much more adorable than her it’s hard to even compare as both Ruka/Mana have appeal as much as Yukino has. Here is what I though of them and the episode.

Ruka and Mana proved just with the following,

How much naughty and perverted kids can get these days in terms of being simply playful while the adults sometimes get the wrong idea. In fact them putting up a moan kind of situation with their expressions really got this part nicely out in terms of comedy and O_O I did not expect that at all from such MOE kids to being naughty like that. Must make fun of the adult stuff. This was easily the best part IMO.

About Ruka/Mana, their first revealing of how they are truly in the spoiler
left my MOE alarm shooting at RED ALERT! Those eyes! Those colors! OMG! *dies* *comes back* *Take into harem* NO CHANCE! I am grabbing those 2 kids! They are too adorable not to own for oneself. Their expressions really made my day. Very satisfied of their design.

I have to say that when the 2 kids were shown in the spoiler
with their summer school uniform the creams of creams came! MOE cream that is. OMG again. So much MOE and appeal. Ruka’s grin made it better along with Mana’s faces there. Add to that the whole ordeal of cable connection in the spoiler
and you have a more perverted Mana! Sheesh. I never expected Mana to get like that. What naughty kids does Okinawa raise?

That is to add the quite nice ass display of Ruka in the spoiler
whom I happen to notice is quite tight despite them being avatars it can quite easily be some nice suit service around. Might as well since I find it appealing. So in general I am quite happy with how they were shown.

About Lagoon Dolphin VS Black Lotus, I did find the fight in the spoiler
quite enticing. Ruka being quite skilled in melee fighting and punching. Her special was nice however too bad I never saw how much it deals damage. However Ruka being a level 5 is pretty nice already. That being said WOW in the spoiler
the difference a special deals in damage is insane between levels
while there were hints that Hime actually boosted her special’s power and defenses.

About Hime and her fan service. Hime got on a multi level a perverted upgrade. I have narrowed down the elements that never before were seen so far. From facials to swimsuit to even ass censoring. It was all in this episode and it IMPRESSED LOADS! The list says it more.
  • First of all Hime’s breast grab and fondling by Megumi in the spoiler
    yields out not only perverted expressions of surprise from Hime but also that squirms 3 times in a row. Rather sensitive person around her chest TBH. Quite the fun there TBH. I knew it from the LN. However it was well done in animation.

  • Hime’s perverted faces appeared in the spoiler
    however one might take it. I found it quite appealing sexually TBH.

  • One cannot deny the perverseness of how Hime reacted nicely to the oiling part in the spoiler
    not to mention to the sun too. Shows how appealing she is there in her reactions.

  • CENSORED in the spoiler
    was included a shower scene whom really shows out more Hime ass whom Vol 1 already did. Still think it’s too big made.

  • A small appeal of Hime’s hair in the spoiler
    shows it how much of sex hair she can have. Might be small but it could be an innuendo.

  • Another nasty part of Hime that I liked are her facials in the spoiler
    whom show a rather nasty side of her towards Ruka/Mana in order to help them out. Quite appealing again.
So I might over going on some parts but I perceived it like that and am a fan of Hime so I would know the sudden changes and those facials and swimsuit really made changes to Hime of rather appealing values in different degrees of ecchi/perverted IMO and that’s fine. Hime being perverted is very appealing.

About Megumi’s drama, I am a little WTF is that in the spoiler
it was rather too sudden IMO. But when you see them tending to each others feelings it was too MOE to refuse. In fact I'm ready to SHIP Megumi x Hime Yuri anyone? This really shoves it out a lot. Fan manga based anyway. Despite sudden the drama was rather nicely done however I got not affected by it.

About the end of the episode, OMG there is a bar in the spoiler
in Accel world? YES! Kids drinking there surely should be less bad than IRL. Should also be drugs place so they don’t do it IRL. This is like a solution to loads of problems in society. Doing them in virtual reality. That being said I am quite surprised that Kurikin knows Black Lotus and from the looks of it he is scared of her.

About the preview, AH YEAH! Can you say TRANSFORMERS for the following,

Yup! I am totally excited for that Robot to get into action. It could be kick ass TBH. Other than that Revolution? O_O WTF? What kind? Mister yellow knight in the spoiler
looks rather interesting with his creature.

Another exciting thing is Megumi in the spoiler
She makes her appearance FINALLY! YEAH! Can’t wait to see her in action and her powers.

Finally WTF is up with Mana in the spoiler
I need to know her powers too! Oh man next week needs to happen now!

BTW Image Stitches with Image Dump done in the BLOG:

LMAO good way to put it.

I actually enjoyed this side-story. Showing what happens with Kuro's trip at the same time when Haru and Taku got back-stabbed by Chiyu when she healed Noumi. Although I still want to know what happens after that cliffhanger dammit!

Negumi has got to be a burst-linker, hints are everywhere. Surprised that she'd tear up because Kuro didn't buy her a gift. Those 2 schoolgirls are hilarious lmao, so damn naive. The red Burst Linker "Kurikin" knew Black Lotus in the past eh? Seems interesting. I just love how he's now a drunkard. xD

Well next week's episode (19) is a continuation of this episode.
Episode 20 better be back to the main story. :P

1. I just want to remind people that this is not a "filler" episode in the classic sense The anime directors didn't make it up. This is part of the side story of book 10 of the LN.
2. Ep 17 is pretty much the end of book 3. Book 12 Just came out. So yeah, the anime has a long way to go. Here's hoping for a second season, and more.

No no no. This side story is happening in the exact timeline of the events in ep17. If this was "Bleach-ed," we will see Haru, Taku, Hime, Niko, and Seiji all suddenly having lunch together, and they'll be solving some random crimes in the school.
