Accel World: Best Anime I Ever Seen in Anime Production
6 September 2013 | by (Singapore, Singapore) – See all my reviews

Without a shatter of a doubt, Accel World is the best anime television series I ever seen. To be honest, at first, I think that this anime television series is about the same as any other anime television series, especially for the structure of the story plot for each them. However, when I first watching this series, I did not expect that for the very first episode, the opening to the series has a special flavour that keeps the audience to watch on to find out what will happen next, until a certain point which the climax of the storyline is somewhere in the series. The main reason is because of the use of continuous foreshadowing that makes this anime have more suspense in every episode to follow through the series. I have already watched all of the 24 episodes in the Accel World anime series. All I can say is that to me, Accel World is considered as a powerful masterpiece in anime making to be debuted in 2012. I cannot really explain how perfect the combination of the music, the characters, the storyline, the intensity and the fluency of the series have captivated me to watch it, and it is indeed really perfect. I was extremely impressed and speechless! The storyline of Accel World is what I really love about. It is about the importance of why we need to respect life. Life is not always perfect everyday; it is fluctuating. We need to learn about the meanings of friendship, trust, camaraderie, bravery and care to remove our fears and frustrations internally and externally. Therefore, life should be appreciated, not taken for granted. If I want to name favourite characters in Accel World, I will say that all of the female characters are adorable, especially for Yuniko Kozuki, Itosu Mana, Ruka Asato, Kuroyukihime (Black Snow Princess - not her real name), Chiruyi Kurashima and Fuko Kurasaki. They are absolutely hot and cute at the same time! Kuroyukihime is in her bathing suit in Okinawa, Yuniko Kozuki has a Tsundere attitude towards people and Chiruyi Kurashima......Um, you know what I mean......of her bare body in the girls' bathroom. The same goes to the male characters, like Haruyuki Arita and Takumu Mayuzumi. I also love the antagonists of the series, especially for Seiji Noumi. To me, this character is the best baddie of any anime series I watched. He has this more of a sinister, ruthless, cold and merciless expression on his face which acts the direct opposite of the other characters in the series, and also his insane and dark voice when he come across others about life with hatred, emptiness and anger. He just love to stab people on their backs, especially when he intervene the relationships among with the other characters. In the end, I love Accel World and hopefully, there will be a second season to it, and more questions will be answered, such as who is the creator of the Accel World game, what is Kuroyukihime's real name, and what is the future between the reality and the virtual world. Well Done! I want to inform that my comment on Accel World do not contain spoilers of any kind because I have already watched the original Japanese version of the anime series in DVD.
