Accel World Episode 17


Well, Haru certainly didn't waste any time to show off his new power. Defeating Noumi with the power of friendship! Woohoo...yeah. But that's not the main point...as predicted (a while ago), Chiyu has betrayed the group, healing Noumi. I assume the reason she could join the battle was that turning it into a battle royale gave Noumi the option of adding her, despite not having Haru and Taku's approval. So, the question remains: is this Chiyu going to the dark side or has she pulled off a Zelos-style (Tales of Symphonia reference) betrayal?

Noumi mentions a difference between older Burst Linkers and more recent ones during the battle...this has to be linked to Chiyu's decision somehow. Noumi made the newer Burst Linkers seem organized somehow...maybe there's some leader? Or maybe Noumi is the leader? I suppose the main question is whether Chiyu was forced to join them or whether she was convinced to join them or whether she is just faking joining them. Since I predicted her starting to feel left out a while ago, I lean more towards her being convinced, but the other two choices are equally possible.

I'd say we might find out next week, but that's likely not the case since the episode seems to be devoted to Kuroyukihime and her trip. Looks like we'll find out who those two kids from the opening are. I would assume there's some sort of sob story and the like...

    Perhaps Chiyu is the only one who realizes the bigger picture. Even if Haru and Taku win, it would only cause Nauomi to use the camera footage and incriminate Haru and herself.

    I dunno if I'd call that seeing the big picture or just being a coward

    You could call it being cowardly, but still a Pyrrhic victory is no different than a defeat. Haru winning that fight would only end in his demise and Chiyu's demise. Even if Chiyu was pressured into the situation of healing Naoumi, the outcome actually is better for Haru than Haru winning the fight

    I have a feeling that the next episode or whenever we next see Haru and the Gang that you will see that Chiyu was either threatened with exposure if she did not heal him or realized that Naoumi would expose them on her own and chose the outcome that did less damage to the group.

    dusk taker body sure is resilient his torso i mean his hand on the other hand is destroyed easily...

    though long term wouldn't be good at the very least chiyu don't freaking heal the opponent and let them enjoy victory for a while beside if noumi had lost he self confidence would go down and taku and haru could just bully him to give up the camera footage(at least this is my solution)

    hmm well i was mistaken at imagining gale thruster didn't expect a jetpack to appear hmm he seem to be faster using sky raker "wing" than his own he should just keep it....but then again if he keep it we wouldn't see sky raker again if he do that...

    hmm gale thruster focus on speed abandoning the height and limit of time that of haru wing.... that or a jetpack would certainly be faster than wing...

    and be like noumi a thief? while haru isn't exactly act like a knight or have an incredible sense of justice and honor even he won't do something like that.this is my opinion since i don't want to see sky raker sad moment... that would be really out of character...

    Not sure about what is that tales reference, but I still am sceptical about Chiyuri taking a dark side. She MUST have a reason for it, and I hope they'll explain it soon...ç__ç
