The last episode of TV Anime Accel World was aired and we were quite satisfied with the ending. And as usual, we were able to see some clues of a second season coming. The ending was quite good and as promised, we were able to learn about the reason why Chiyuri became a partner of Noumi. The final episode did seem a bit rush and we can more or less smell a new season. Of course, we cannot fail to mention the OAD which was bundled with the game Accelerate World and was released on September 13.
Though in my opinion, the series turns out to be a bit Chuunibyou (not the upcoming TV Anime), but guess that could be a similar style across Reki Kawahara’s (川原 礫) novel and we do see the connection in Sword Art Online.
And as for our last boss Noumi, he was becoming an interesting character and if you read the novel, you will see him around some time later.
During the final part of the last episode, few new characters were introduced, including one of the female protagonists Utai Shinomiya (四埜宮 謡, above screenshot) and Rin Kusakabe (日下部 綸). Quite a similar way to end the series like Kore wa Zombie Desu ka? for which we are waiting impatiently for the announcement of the third season. We will keep an eye on both series (and lots more) and will bring back more rumors in the future.
Meanwhile, the opening of the Third Offline Meeting of Accel World x Sword Art Online was announced on the official website yesterday. The event will be held on February 17 next year, probably a good time for a new season announcement. Will get back to this.
