Accel World 19

Accel World

… oh boy, do want to see her crushing mercilessly Noumi’s organization.

Well, that ends the Accel Yuri mini-arc. It was mostly fighting this week, but it wasn’t really very good sigh. Kurikin’s Megamachine move was nice but got wasted, while Megumi’s sudden intervention was pretty jarring. It’s like… “what? She just popped in to change the stage then popped back out”. Nice of them to give her some screentime, but it wasn’t really well done. Oh well.

Frankly, would’ve liked it more seeing what KYH did to Sulfur Pot after he got revived, but I have a feeling it would not be very television-friendly.

Anyways, we’re back to the rage-filled Pork-gets-NTR’ed-by-Noumi next week… sigh, my motivation to watch just dropped by 30%

    And thus we move on from the main character Kuroyukihime back to the side characters like Porky.

    Also on a side note, did we see just Black Lotus’ Overdrive as a normal kind of special move or an Incarnation move that lets her emulate the special traits of pure colors?

    I’d bet that its an Incarnation move.

    @Dude:
    Black Lotus’s Overdrive is neither an Incarnation move or a special ability. It is based upon the concept of the Zero Fill (Losing the will) and Incarnation System (Override the system). Furthermore, this move is available to non-color [e.g. white or black (& metal?)] avatar. In this case, she needs the strength her defense to withstand the rush attack of Ness.

    The Incarnation system is not omnipotent. A rare Enemy (e.g. Legend / God class) has very high resistance to the attacks from the Incarnation system. The player will need to relay on high level special ability / attack to deal damage to these Bosses.
    Ness is a Legend class.

    Sigh, they really used Megumi as a deus-ex-machina this time.
    So, apparently she is a former Bust Linker who was allowed a last connection for some supernatural reason? Meh, I totally don’t like when an author goes against his own rules. :(

    In typical Accel World fashion, even without the angst it’s whining time.

    Unexplained Megumi entrance oh well. Hopefully Haruyuki will pick things up and destroy Noumi.

    Well, I could suggest you to watch the remaining episodes in one go and create a single post for it.

    Still, if only Megumi joined the Nega Nebulous…

    Isn’t time in the Unlimited Neutral Zone supposed to go way, way faster than reality? Even discounting the fact that she used to be a Burst Linker with goddamn world-bending power and somehow enters the UNZ with a full special gauge, isn’t it supposed to be temporally impossible for her to show up at the right time?

    I commend your strength of will for not ragequitting yet.

    Actually, it took around 30 minutes of sleep time for Piggy to get the whole Incarnation thing down pat.

    And Megumi is deux-ex-linker for that episode, so meh, nothing to explain there.

    Why are people so against Haru-kun?! He’s a great MC! He’s brave when he needs to be, kind, gen….oh who am I kidding…he SUCKS! His chubby-chaser harem is pretty much the only thing he’s got going for him.

    Voting for Kurikin as new male lead protagonist.

    Unless the Brain Burst doesn’t really uninstalls (i.e. the program files are still in the neurolinker so when you try install it again just see that the files are still there so you cann’t install something that it’s already installed and doesn’t overwrite what is in there) then indeed It’s a Pink ex Machina what happened with Megumi. Maybe she was allowed to do that because they were in Okinawa against a cheater. You know, if AW follow a server-client architecture like our online games, then the AW server its the one who decides if it lets the player to login into the game or not… And we don’t anything about the server where the game runs, and who maintains it, let alone who is the admin, so yeah, I think that an explanation of what happened in this ep with Megumi can be easily told, so I don’t it is a Deus ex machina, it appears to be one, but I think its just a hint.

    You know, we really need a fat, unglamorous anime lead done RIGHT.

    Black Lotus can use those reins to ride Silver Crow.
