Accel World:

Next time "Retribution"-sama frowns condescendingly at your disapproval.

Taku came off much creepier in the anime than he did in the manga.

The wing pull was done pretty well though.

So, just a question. Do you think we'll ever get to see someone using the Burst Link to win at physical stuff?

Because it's been referenced several times, and I'd really like to know how this series interprets that it's possible, without going into Physical Full Burst.

Part of this is as far as we've seen with Haru, it's useless for dodging in fights, especially is you have to say "Burst Link" every time.

You don't have to "say" Burst Link, just think it loudly. The "shouting" thing just looks better in the anime.

Well giving one time to think can help a lot in person to person sports.

I can't see it helping in track though.

My first reaction was "lol, true" but then I thought about it.

Even in running/sprinting there are different ways to do it. I read a manga (Suzuka*) that talked about how "the fastest sprinter in the world reaches his max speed near the end of the sprint (and that is what a rival does) while [the main character] burns out early." The virtual world (and especially the Accel World) would be perfect for practicing "proper form" without tiring out your body.

True, that does not help during the competition itself, but it gives the person who can accelerate an advantage.

(Using the Sword Art Online tech for training military personnel is discussed later in that series.)

I don't know if it is just my impression but, doesn't the opening seems more spoilerific than in previous chapters? For example showing Cyan Pile and Black Lotus avatars and Silver Crow winged mode against a dragon maybe?

[up]The opening has been the exact same since the end of the first episode.

[up][up][up]There's some truth in that in Real Life. Well not exactly the same case (the case mentioned is more on when to reach max speed) but Usain Bolt is actually running with an imperfect technique (i.e. how the max speed is reached). lol

If Bolt goes into Burst Link he can perfect his form while running. tongue

Speaking of the OP, May'n is trying her dardnest to look like Snow Black on the Chase The World cover.

And that ED, my ears bleed.

Black Lotus looks really cool~

I don't get why both Black Lotus and Silver Crow think their avatars suck; they look pretty damn sleek and awesome.

[up]Just like every other avatar. lol

Black Lotus isn't exactly the prettiest avatar we've seen, and it clashes mightily with what we know of Kuroyukihime's aesthetic tastes.

I suspect that people with low self-esteem would generally think their avatars look bad; given that they're designed to match one's insecurities.

Also, while Black Lotus doesn't actually look bad, I do have to concurr with her that the whole 'no hands' thing is kind of problematic. Maybe she wasn't trying to decapitate that one king…
Welp, sig's different now.
[up] Oh god if it turns out that her rebellion was just an accident I will laugh so hard.

That said, I really love this "fight against the world" plots, so I'm looking forward to the coming episodes. It helps that they're basically playing a video game and I have to agree, what's the point of playing if not to level up and reach the end?

Good episode. The braided twintails is always a nice touch.

8thSin's usual TL notes and stuff. Contains mild yaoi subtext because lol why not. I wonder if that "when pigs fly" thing is intentional on the part of the author though.

Once again I felt kind of cheated with Episode 5, same problems as last week but in reverse.

Taku comes off much creepier than he's supposed to, treating Chiyu like an object ( and freaking installing viruses into her system}. Haru forgives him instantly, which I'll just brush off as being so afraid to lose any friends that even the biggest jerk in the universe he'd still be friends with. The wing pull would obviously happen, but once again it just does, nobody mentions it until after it happens. You'd think during Black Lotus' little 'You're special Haru' moment in episode 3 she would have. I mean, would it have been that hard to add "You may even be the Accelerated World's first flying chararacter." beforehand?

And now Black Lotus has revealed herself to everybody and started a guild, I did not see a Debut Queue coming. I mean, when Smile Precure did it it worked because that's usual set up for five teammate Magical Girl shows and it was still somewhat bad. I don't think it's a good move for a non-longrunner.

That's just it, Accel World is more of a long-runner than Sword Art Online. It has 11 light novels and one major story line while SAO has 10 light novels and much more self-contained story lines.

So we're still around the first/second novel?
In honor of my 50lb pup
Hm... The prologue of the second book talks about him being level 3. And the end of chapter 4 (out of 9) in the first book ends with "Listen, I will direct connect with her. Even with attack blocking, during direct connect I should be able to check her memory to see if she has the Brain Burst program or not. Senpai should be satisfied with this right?"

So we are a bit over half way through the first book. Can't tell anything more specific because that is what the fan-translation has to offer.

The second book is mainly about the current red king and some berserk armor. We haven't touched it yet.
