No matter what age it is, the "Bullied Child" will never disappear. The overweight, middle school student, Haruyuki, was one such kid. The only time he could relax completely, was when he would play a squash game on the local network the school had set up. He loved playing this simple game as he can forget painful times while immersed in it.

It was fall. He was passing his time like this until one day, he had an encounter with the school's most beautiful, refined girl, "Shiroyukihime," which changed his life abruptly. Introduced to the software she transmitted, Haruyuki learned about "Accel World." A program that enhances one's mind capabilities... with certain side-effects.

It was the moment the guy on the lowest rung at school became "Burst Linker," protecting the Princess as her knight.

Sword Art Online and Accel World is in the same "universe" with different characters. SAO starting in 2022, and Accel in 2046. Of course the security has increased to a level where it's no longer dangerous to use Virtual / Augmented Reality in 2046. The author is showing in SAO the risks of this newly invented game technology, and in Accel World he shows the evolved version and how useful it is in everyday life.

Story: In the year 2046, they have a device that long since replaced cellphones and computers, and it's worn on the neck. This story is about a certain fighter game knows read more
