Why is Accel World so underrated? I'd have to say that its at least on par with its "predecessor" Sword Art Online. Correct me if I'm wrong by the way.
>>
SAO kiddies didn't want to self-insert into the fatty.

Accel World is leagues better than SAO.

It is not "at least on par." Accel World is clearly better in a lot of aspects. The story is better, the animation is better, the girls are better, the OST is better. Only Haru is on par with Kirito due to the fact that both are on opposite extreme spectrum of Otaku's self-insert.

>Reki Kawahara wrote the first volume in 2002 as a competition entry for ASCII Media Works' Dengeki Game Novel Prize (電撃ゲーム小説大賞 Dengeki Game Shōsetsu Taishō?, now Dengeki Novel Prize), but refrained from submitting it as he had exceeded the page limit. He instead published it as a web novel under the pseudonym Fumio Kunori.[1] Over time, he added three further volumes and several short stories.[2][3] In 2008, he participated in the competition again by writing Accel World, this time winning the Grand Prize. Aside from Accel World, he was requested to get his earlier work, Sword Art Online, published by ASCII Media Works.[1] Kawahara agreed and withdrew his web novel versions.[3] The republication as a paper novel began on April 10, 2009. The paper novel excluded chapter 16.5 of volume 1 of the web novel, due to its explicit nature, which was originally a fan fiction of his own work. On October 10, 2012, the first volume of the Sword Art Online: Progressive series was released.[4] Progressive covers Kirito's adventures on the first and second floors of Aincrad, and includes a rewrite of two side stories: "Aria in the Starless Night" and "Rondo of the Transient Sword". A second volume was published on December 10, 2013.[5] At their Japan Expo USA panel, Yen Press announced the rights to publish the light novels; the first volume is scheduled for April 22, 2014.[6][7]

If they run out of points all that happens is they lose the game, and become the same as everyone else in the world.

Additionally, I find the game pretty shitty, and everyone and their mother can hack the thing to stay off the player list.

It the fact that he would lose the one thing that allowed him to escape and be accepted. Also, if he lost the game, he would lose all of his memories with kuroyukihime. So he pretty much would go back to being the lonely bullied fat kid. He would lose that relationship with the one girl that gave him a chance (besides Chiyu who was already taken at the time).

>I didn't like Accel World because nothing felt like it had any weight
Are you saying that you like SAO more? You know that most anons will agree, SAO was too 'tryhard' in its premise; or rather, in the way that premise was executed. Just 'having weight' doesn't necessarily make something good or bad.

I can see how you would be disappointed in AW if you went in expecting something serious, but that's not really what the intention was in the first place. There's a bit of tension, enough to keep the plot moving, but I saw it as being more 'stupid fun' for the viewer than anything else. And at that, it excelled.

But if you want to know my opinion on it.

I liked SAO for the first few episodes, and then things went to shit for me. The MC was revealed to be the self-insert perfection machine. The show got derailed into shitty romance with vanilla girl. Then came the asspull ending and the horribad second arc. I feel like it had lots of potential, but would have to be redone from the ground up to work.

You said you didn't like AW because it didn't have enough 'weight', and I was just pointing out that such 'weight' doesn't necessarily make or break a series. The execution matters more, as well as the viewer's expectations.

It doesn't necessarily make a series, but it does necessarily break a series. If the viewer doesn't feel like anything that's going on matters, it will break the series. This is part of execution. Not just expectations.
>>
>>101045147
You clearly don't understand what he said.

Kawahara has another Light Novel, SAO Progressive, that's meant to cover the clearing of Aincrad, from floor 1.

As for the girl thing... It's more of a gag, really. In the Light Novel, he's already described as being feminine in appearance. But GGO got him stuck with a girly avatar, so that best-girl will mistake him for one...

Going back to the MC of Accel world, not to be gay or anything but, was I the only one who found Hariyuki kinda "cute" after getting to know him a bit. Come on, hes a short little kid who just wants to make friends and save the woman he loves. Come on! look at that H on his jacket.
>>
>>101045295
But what if you go in expecting some stupid fun? It absolutely is dependant on one's expectations, unless you think that an anime has to be serious to be enjoyable. But if I just want to enjoy some overblown action, or some cute girls doing cute things, or some sex jokes, then a lack of weight and dramatic tension won't break the series at all.

My friend refuses to watch it despite loving SAO just because Haru is fat.

Though I think a lot of /a/ was like that while it was airing. Personally I love the series and watched the anime four times.

Only if you compare it to SAO. I personally find AW more interesting than SAO. The cast is just more likable and the setting and concept is more fun. It has comedy and harem elements, but also it can be serious without the need of life and death circumstances.

People play and want to level up for power, wealth, and glory in the real world by exploiting BB. And if you lose, you'll forever lose any chance to have obtain them, so it's serious in that way. Plus, all players have some kind of trauma or physical issues/scars, so that adds an intrigue about the nature of the game and why such game exists and for what purpose.

Way too many people hate the series because the MC is fat. Many don't even watch passed the first episode. So, that type of hate is stupid.

Your opinion aside, I think a lot of people would have a different opinion if they watched the whole show to see Haru's character development. Sure, Haru started as a "beta" and was "sad" to watch at the start, but he got over that and manned up some pretty quick. He's quite smart and can get shit done without backing down from fear when he sets to be determined. He works hard and tries to better himself for KYH'. He holds the same feelings (on a philosophical level) as KYH does in how a game should be played and cleared on a level, so he's doing a lot of that for himself, and not simply out of guilt or because he feels indebted.

I think what annoys a lot of people about Haru isn't that he's fat, but that he's fat and pretty much like any other animu MC.

Like when all the girls fall for bland mcfuckface in generic animu harem #013598-B, it's annoying but usually they have some sort of self confidence and always have a decent physique. Haru has fuck all and he's rolling in pussy

I can kind of see it a bit actually, less noble off the bat, but the stuff he was saying to Haru when he was down was a lot like Kaminas dumb but true logic.

So hey guys. Apparently, before Reki published the first book of Accel World, he had a draft of it up on his site.

So yeah, towards the end of the draft, apparently, KYH gave Haru her real name.
Kuroyukihime's real name (in the draft) was Kuroba Yukiko, (黒羽雪子)
Though, it seems when he published it, this was removed.

「ふふ。やっぱり、君は君だな、ハルユキ君。じゃあ、改めて自己紹介しよう。と言っても、あだ名と大差ないんだけどな。――私の名前はユキコ。黒羽雪子」
クロバ、ユキコ。
その名前を、ハルユキは何度も、何度も胸のおくで繰り返した。
「ユキコ……さん」


Of course, it could change in the actual LN. (Or never show up at all..)

Doesn't Sky Raker call her by some kind of nickname beginning with Sa? Or was that Sky Raker's nickname?

>>101050468
Well my guess it's not very well known, considering it was only up for a short while. But apparently you can find it in some archives of his site. Someone I know posted the excerpt I put above.

>>101050540
Yeah, apparently she calls her Sa-chan. Could just be a nickname, or like I said, it could be completely different in the LN.

Come on, guys. You could put Kirito and a NerveGear in the OP, then scroll past to show technology advancing to the present day. And have Lotus mention the SAO incident or something. That would draw people in, right?

Or heck, there's always the Versus story...

Reki has acknowledged that there are many references between the two series, to each other. However, he also says there is currently NO CONNECTION to the two.
He at one point mentioned that he may consider eventually writing a third series, that would connect SAO and AW together, but that's merely a possibility.

I am just curious how the author feels his early work is getting new seasons but now he is actually trying to put more effort in his writing but the show isn't as popular and might not even get a second season. Or is it because Sao is so popular he doesn't care as long as he is making money.

I like both, but Accel World probably needs it more because it has more action scenes. If I had to stick to the LNs for Log Horizon, it doesn't seem as big a loss.

>>101054744
It's by far his most well-known work, and accidentally invented the entire "piloted giant robot" genre. And they're still making spinoffs of Mazinger Z itself (like Robot Girls Z this season).

The Progressive manga isn't really an adaptation of the LN, per se. The most notable difference is that the LN is mostly from Kirito's perspective, while the manga is mostly from Asuna's.

>>101054962
>Log Horizon
Wow. Sunrise doesn't even make LH.
>>
>>101055230
The Progressive manga is basically Aria from Asuna's POV so far. It cuts and adds a lot as a result of this.
>>
>>101055325
At least 50% of Taku's lines are innuendo. And that's before taking the OVA into account.
>>
>>101055230
It added quite a few parts for the sake of humor. It didn't cut out TOO much, but keep in mind, like >>101055364 said, it's not really meant to be an adaption. It's more of a retelling from Asuna's perspective.

That being said, they still seem to have changed a lot of things. It's CONSIDERABLY closer to the Light Novel, than the Anime, but the artist still took some liberties.
>>
>>101041525
I was expecting him to get skinny or work out to try to become a better person in the course of the anime, it never happened so I checked the LN and even in the latest volume he is still fat.
Dropped.

>>101055459

I see, well I like the pacing in progressive more, it's not a bad read maybe i'll check out the LN. What is the author expecting to do with this re-telling if the original is still on-going?

Progressive is meant to go back, and tell what happened as Aincrad was being cleared, without the obscene time-skips (other than the 2 month time skip, between the first day, and right before the 1st floor is cleared)

So far he's released two books, though i'm curious if he's going to increase his pace. (73 books, one a year is not a good idea.)
>>
I marathoned this last year because I had no internet for about a week and ran out of things to do. It was surprisingly good and Haru grew on me despite being a fat dwarf. By the end of the series he was this alpha dude going around kicking ass and taking names. Much better than that SAO soap opera
>>
>>101055780
You know, even if Kawahara's villains are hammy as fuck, they're so fun to hate. Noumi was such a shit. SUCH A SHIT.

>>101055934

1 month.

What, you don't want three and a half more decades of SAO?

>>
>>101056003
Oh right. 1 month. Huh... Don't know where I got 2.
And no, I'd rather not wait until I'm in my 50s to 60s when I finally finish the series.

My guess is, after the main story slows down/ends, he'll start releasing most Progressive per year. There's also how some floors (like the 22nd) were passed in a matter of days, without anything important happening. So those would be rather short books (or the books would contain stuff about multiple floors.)

>>101056730
Yeah, in SAO, the NTR Villains got progressively worst.
With Kuradeel you know that he wanted to have fun with Asuna, but it wasn't really as explicit.
Sugou harasses her for most of the arc, until the very end, where he molests her out-right, and says he'll rape her real body.

With Shinkawa, it sort of tones down (I think..? haven't read Phantom Bullet in a long time. might reread it soon.) but he still ends up wanting to screw her, but also wants to kill her (necrophilia much?)

Then we get to Alicization.
For one, there's the brain-washing of Alice, but that's not really sexual.
However, Humbert and Raios flat out try to rape Ronye and Teise, after drugging them, and tying them up. (And apparently, in the web-novel the "attempted rape" was successful. So I guess his Editor had him tone it down)
>>
>>101057265
Kawahara wants to be hardcore, but his editor won't let him.

Anyways, guys, Accel World thread. Accel World. We can shitpost in our own godawful SAO threads some other time.

Sword Art Online got my hopes up only to disappoint me horribly
Episode 1 was pretty decent, did a good job of introducing the MC and the world
Episode 2 was really good, had a really nice MMO feel to it with everyone working together to take down the boss, but I knew something was wrong when I saw the ending, from the moment Kirito put on that stupid cloak I got this really bad feeling

I guess I just thought that I would be seeing more of everyone working together to take down the boss monsters rather than watching the adventures of Gary Stu, the boss slayer!

AW was just kinda meh the whole way through for me though so I find myself less disappointed in it overall but I think quality wise both shows are about the same.
>>
>>101057407
yeah, yeah. NTR shit aside. I would be up for a second season. The fighting was flashy and fun, and the whole videogame/superpower premise was fairly interesting. Even if it was excessively shounen
>>
>>101041525
One of the better LN adaptations out there. Also nice fight scene.

Still don't understand why people hate Haru because he's fat.
>>
>>101059086
its because its a different style that clashes with the other style if he fit into it I am sure every faggot would pick this up.

It as a decent shounen, which by itself makes it leagues better than SAO.

explain?

>>101060571
He did scratch his shield.
>>
>>101061276
Kawakami is really into his series. The dance fight in episode 9 was choreographed using Kawakami as a reference. He also apparently modeled out the ship the characters all travel on, and brought it to Sunrise.
>>
>>101041525
Because insecure people are turned off by the MC appearance and there are some cliches which people hate. Otherwise this series is alright.
>>
So
How is the translation going?
