Everything about his avatar screams “modified”…it has a grotesque design to it that doesn’t seem natural to the game (even with Chrome Disaster). I really do like the idea of someone being able to hack the Accel World…makes it much more like a normal game, rather than some “super game” with a mysterious creator that no one can touch.
I can see the gears turning for Chiyu. It’s all a game…all supposed to be fun. Why am I being harassed? Why am I being blackmailed? All for joining this game. That must be the sort of thing she is beginning to think. I can definitely see her doing something dark because of all of this.
On another note…new opening and ending. For some reason, I really like the new opening…as in, more than the first opening. Music-wise, I much prefer the first ending song, but you may like actual animation of the new one, which is perfectly fine. Either way, next week Haru goes up against Noumi’s whacked-out avatar. It also looks like that skull-biker guy is gonna make an appearance. The opening almost suggests that he will become a begrudging ally for Haru…is it already starting? Will he help against Noumi? For that matter, is he someone we already know?
