Accel World Episode 6

Well well...another interesting episode this week. Taku has started helping Haru out with leveling up, but Haru is still using hit and run tactics to win. How disappointing...I'm surprised I didn't realize earlier how much his new wings help out with running away. This guy...seriously. Anyway, Haru comically levels up too quickly and burns most of his points, so Taku's suggesting a bodyguard. I kinda expected it to be a girl, but what is the deal with a level 1 bodyguard? It seemed like a trap to me, but it doesn't look like it so far.

Haru started trusting Taku pretty quickly, but maybe that was premature. The end of the episode makes it look like Kuroyukihime still suspects him. Is this a real betrayal or is Taku being misunderstood? I honestly wouldn't be surprised either way. The battle in the preview makes it look like a real betrayal, though. I thought it was strange that Taku went to Kuroyukihime when he was supposed to be watching over Haru, but I guess she called him. Moving on...Kuroyukihime's name isn't revealed...Bah. I guess it's to be expected, but what a tease.

To finish off, I just want to say that some things in this show seem like they could be made clearer. Like the fact that level 9's only lose all of their points from losing to level 9's. Or what effects Physical Full Burst has on the body. Specifically in this week's show, Haru does that bit where he levels up too quickly and loses most of his points. But what is the benefit of leveling up? Why not just stay level 1 forever and hoard points until you have enough to level up to 9? I dunno...maybe the bouncer will be able to explain that. Maybe she's level 1 because of what I just said.
