I'm not exactly one to write reviews, but I just HAVE to make an exception for this gem. To anyone who likes Accelerator, I HIGHLY recommend this.
It does have some stupidity thrown in with all the random happenstances, but then again, this is a parody, and is for more fun than trying to "Logically Analyse". Oh, and to those who like it when a series feels like it actually "ended" well, this is a must-read. I can't describe how pleasing the ending felt, and I couldn't have written it better if I wanted to.
Sure it's not "Ultra Beautiful", but if a
parody looked THAT exceptional, I'm sure I would be turned off if anything. They maintain their usual Appearances from the Original series, apart from Accelerator's Idol transformations and some cover pictures. To me, who loves them all as they are, a simplistic artstyle for the most part that still maintains the charm of the original, while also being able to give off it's own charm, is Godly.
The characters have mostly retained their Natures and characteristics from the Original series, which is good since for many like myself. that is what drew me in anyways(Although I won't lie I did have an undying curiosity to see how Accelerator would fare as an Idol). The original series is serious and doesn't allow for the kind of interactions this one does to take place, and this was capitalized on and executed Wonderfully.
There haven't been many series that made me feel genuine sadness that it was going to end. This one did. I'd like to think that accounts for something. I love Accelerator, but I really couldn't get into the Spin-off Accelerator manga as much. It felt lacking, even though it stays true to his personality too. Maybe I like it less since there's no Misaka WORST there (Oh yeah!! For fans of WORST, This Idol manga has her in it too!)
I love this fun little work, and it might be hilarious, but I love it as much as I love the original too. They're like two sides of the same coin, the Yin and the Yang. Serious, and light-hearted as hell. Both awesome in their own ways.
