Megumi is evil! That must have been her standing by that pillar in the building where Kuroyukihime and the kids went (I even went back painstakingly to confirm the match)…so suspicious. Of course the kids made it sound like their problem extends before the class trip, so it’s unlikely she’s their “monster”, but she’s still up to something. How could she? I actually felt a little sorry for her when Kuroyukihime forgot to get her a gift! Is she just pretending not to know about Accel World? There’s a girl who looks suspiciously like her in the opening now that I think about it (I can’t tell if they’re the same, though).
It looks like Kuroyukihime is reuniting with an old…acquaintance? I guess my first natural reaction to this “monster” the kids were referencing was that it had to be Chrome Disaster or something similar, but that shouldn’t be possible. Plus, it looked like a fairly normal Burst Linker riding on top of it. I can’t imagine it should be too much trouble for Kuroyukihime…how strong could it be? Why is it a problem?
Guess we’re gonna have to keep holding off on finding out about Chiyu because this arc is going on next week. While it’s kinda nice to see more of Kuroyukihime away from her mysterious aura around Haru, it’s kind of a jerk move to leave us dangling on that cliff.
