Trivia

There is a fan theory that Black Lotus is the Daughter of Kirito & Asuna from Sword Art Online, another series by Reki Kawahara that takes place in the same world as Accel World. This theory is built mostly on the fact that Black Lotus' design looks like a combination between the 2 characters. See more »

Super funny, well done, but disappointingly short..
9 October 2019 | by spiritingshadowSee all my reviews

It's a fantastic show for anybody that wants a new SAO, except for the story writing is far different in how the characters act and their goals and reasonings (different shows, go figure.) my biggest complaint is that I feel like it could have told a much bigger story if it wanted to do so, but it kind of kept itself grounded (which could be taken as a positive.). If you want a somewhat comical show, with decent action scenes, and a pretty alright plot, it's a good watch!
