Umesato Junior High



Voiced by: Isshin Chiba (Japanese), Kyle Hebert (English)

A student who frequently bullies Haruyuki at the start of the series.

  • Barbaric Bully: At the beginning of Accel World, Araya's Establishing Character Moment as Haru's regular tormenter is to force the latter to buy him and his gang lunches or else he will beat the crap out of Haru. Not only that, but Araya uses an illegal program in his neurolinker that will let him know when the security cameras are watching so he can get off scot-free. Even Haru's friends don't bother reporting Araya's bullying to the school's staff. Eventually, Kuroyukihime pulls a Batman Gambit to get Araya and his gang arrested and expelled, which helps Haru get back his sense of self-worth.
  • Bully Brutality: Araya initially just resorts to bullying Haruyuki, extorting him into giving him lunch. After Kuroyukihime gets him expelled, he jumps right into brutal territory by trying to run Haru and Kuroyukihime over with his car.
  • Car Fu: After being released on bail for his earlier actions which resulted in his first arrest, Araya resorts to using his car to try murdering both Kuroyukihime and Haruyuki. It doesn't work out, as Araya gets arrested once again.
  • Department of Redundancy Department: He likes giving "command orders" to Haruyuki, who notes how ridiculous the phrase sounds.
  • Hate Sink: He has no redeeming traits whatsoever, and is nothing more than a bully who makes Haru's life miserable.
  • No Name Given: His given name is never revealed, and his underlings are never officially named.
  • Small Role, Big Impact: He only officially appears in the first volume, but gets arrested for good after he nearly kills Kuroyukihime. Haru often ends up thinking about him months after he disappears from the story.


A boy from the basketball team who confronts Haruyuki, believing him to be responsible for putting a camera in the girls' shower room.

  • Hit Me, Dammit!: He bows deeply and begs Haru to punch him after realizing that Haru didn't plant the camera.
  • Important Haircut: He shaves his head in the light novel, as a form of apology to Haru.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: While he does punch Haru and threatens to do worse to him if he's proven to be responsible for the camera, he's upset over how deeply the discovery of the camera frightened his girlfriend. He acknowledges the possibility that he's wrong about Haru, and when Haru's innocence is proven, asks Haru to hit him.

    Megumi Wakamiya 

Megumi Wakamiya/Orchid Oracle

Voiced by: Haruka Tomatsu (Japanese), Amanda Céline Miller (English)

A former Burst Linker who has lost her memories of the game. See the Orchid Oracle section in Accel World Other Burst Linkers.



Introduced in book 6. A northern white-faced owl formerly cared for by the students of Matsunogi Academy, the school attended by Utai Shinomiya (Ardor Maiden). With his hutch due to be demolished, he is passed into the care of Umesato's Animal Care Club, of which Haruyuki has inadvertently become president. He starts off reluctant to let anyone but Utai feed him, but the club gradually earn his trust.

  • Children Raise You: Caring for Hoo proves to be therapeutic for Haru, helping him apply himself better in real life. Admiring his movements in flight also helps Haru to better understand the desires which birthed Silver Crow's wings, culminating in the creation of his second-order Incarnate technique "Light Speed" (which transforms Crow's simple metallic wings into realistic feathered ones resembling Hoo's).
    Haru: "Hoo, I have to thank you. This is the first time I've ever taken care of a living creature, but I actually feel like you're teaching me all kinds of things instead. The meaning of living, of flying. I can't put it into words properly, but I think it's because I got to meet you that I could fly faster and higher than the God Suzaku. I'm still totally hopeless in the real world and in the Accelerated World... and even still, it's only bit by bit, but lately, I've started feeling like I'm moving forward..."
  • Raised In Captivity: A former pet whose owner dug out his microchip and released him into the wild, where he struggled to feed himself.
  • Stock Animal Diet: Fed largely on frozen mice.

    Reina Izeki 

Reina Izeki

Introduced in book 6. A fashionable second-year member of the Animal Care Club.

  • Hidden Depths: When introduced it looks like she plans to brush off her club duties and leave everything to Haru, like Hamajima ends up doing. In book 9, however, she turns up for the club's second meeting, revealing that she was just exhausted at the time.



Introduced in book 6 as a member of the Animal Care Club, but has never participated in club activities.

Mayu Ikuzawa


Crossover Characters


Kazuto Kirigaya/Kirito

Voiced by: Yoshitsugu Matsuoka (Japanese, drama CD)
Protagonist of Sword Art Online. During the Versus short story, while testing the Soul TransLator his mind becomes connected to the Brain Burst server decades into the future, leading him to battle Silver Crow.

  • Expy Coexistence: On hearing Haru's description of a "dual-wielding black swordsman", Kuroyukihime briefly wonders if he was fighting her old guildmate and mentor Graphite Edge.
  • Residual Self-Image: Brain Burst generates a duel avatar for him which conveniently has the appearance and abilities of SAO's "Black Swordsman". Kirito is mildly disappointed in himself for this, taking it as evidence that he hasn't truly been able to move on from that incident.
  • Wrong Context Magic: His avatar "Kirito" doesn't resemble a normal duel avatar in appearance or abilities. Likewise, Silver Crow is capable of Flight with greater agility than the winged avatars of Alfheim Online and without the same muscle twitches, making Kirito wonder if it's being controlled by an actual Winged Humanoid.

Other Characters

    Saya Arita 

Saya Arita

Voiced by: Mari Hagai (Japanese), Amanda Céline Miller (English)

Haruyuki's mother, who married his father while studying for her Master's degree. They divorced when Haru was 7, with Saya receiving sole custody over him.

  • Generation Xerox: She and Chiyuri's mother are friends.
  • Invisible Parents: She's barely seen at all in the story, even when she's home, until Volume 19. In the first episode of the anime, she's seen buried under her sheets as Haru goes to get lunch money from her.
  • Parental Neglect: She's rather distant from Haru, partly related to being away on business. As a result of her hands-off approach to parenting, Niko tricks Saya into letting her into the apartment twice, once while posing as a relative and another time as a coworker's daughter.

    Chiyuri's Mother 

Chiyuri's mother.

  • Adapted Out: She doesn't appear in the anime version of the scene where Haru visits Chiyu at home.
  • Generation Xerox: She and Haruyuki's mother are friends.
  • Good Parents: She's a loving mother to her daughter Chiyu, and is close to Chiyu's friends Taku and Haru.
  • Happily Married: Unlike Saya, she's happily married to her husband. Chiyu jokes that her mother only puts all her effort into cooking for her father.
