Accel World

Haruyuki is a fat kid that just entered middle school for half a year. He has the standard fat kid problems like low self-esteem, getting bullied and what not. His only escape is the virtual world, where his brain's reaction speed is not limited by his real world body size. There he plays squash in the school network, where his monsterous score is noticed by the school beauty Princess Snow Black. She wants to recruit him to a special world, where speed and ability to fight determines whether they get to keep their speed or not.

The beautiful girl inititiating a nerdy kid into a world of superhuman powers and serious dangers is a tried and true formula which works well here, but that's about all the show has going for it, since I didn't find the characters all that interesting.

Michael Eh?

Hmm... Red or blue pill? Looks like the influence of the Matrix reaches anime. Kind of funny how security cameras were referred as 'Social cameras' and Accelated World as the means of escaping that reality by using them to create another. Bullying hasn't changed but the fact that you can have all the time to think out you actions. Kind of an interesting thought. Still it has it consequences.


looks good. i think i'll follow it


Very, well put anime, has lots of good humor and action while the storyline is kept fit and easy to follow.
