Actually stole my attention!

Accel World themes may not original nor phenomenal. But, its setting which will differ from many futuristic cyber-punk anime genre. The story about kid who got superpowers maybe already crossed your mind, typical. But often it doesn't emphasizing about main character weaknesses. Arita Haruyuki, the main character whose always bullied at school, portrays a lot of emotional struggle like a very low self-esteem, self hatred, inability to cope with reality, which he become extremely depressed and lose himself in the so-called virtual reality. His confidence about "one thing he could do better than anyone" may remember us about ourself. About how fragile life is.

The story mostly tell about how someone don't "instantly" becoming great, even if he is trusted with great powers. Given Haruyuki speed and "very special avatar" at AW, he doesn't necessarily become the greatest, like we always see at another shonen anime. Its really ironic that the deeper the mental wounds at burst linker, will grant more power at the avatar. It is like a "dichotomy" or something that this series maker want to tell us that even you suck at life, you will triumph in another.

The animation sequence and action is the thing that make this anime worth watching. Another thing is a really lovable heroine like Kuroyukihime (yes i am one of her fans), not mentioning really good music (and i love the second ending which Kuroyukihime's seiyuu- Sachika Misawa sang herself). So if you like sci-fi anime with teen life setting, with marvelous action sequence and ready to jelly over ultra lucky fatass. Accel World is a must-watch
