It was the first two episodes right? If so it got almost exactly where I expected it to. Looks really solid adaptation wise so far.

I don't believe anybody ripped the Bandai Channel pre-screen, so you can't find it anywhere now. As Kunagisa mentioned, there is another limited pre-screen on nicovideo.jp next week.

My only gripe after watching the pre-screen of the first two episodes on b-ch was that the first episode in particular felt a bit rushed, but still enjoyable overall. At least compared to the manga, it felt like they trimmed and compacted the majority of the dialog, explanations, and inner thoughts to key plot points only. Necessary evil to compensate for the high animation budget? Dengeki Bunko doing this on purpose to encourage sales of the manga and light novel? Probably a little of both.

Kunagisa, did you get this feeling as well, or was it just me?

It's a mix of the two.

3D character models + flat 2D style textures + 3D special effects

Kinda but not really?

Though I agree with the choices. One of the primary concern I had with the the series for anime only audiences that have no prior contact with the novel is that they would get too turned off by Haruyuki's extreme low self-esteem; let's face it, nobody wants to WATCH someone wallow in self-pity (though reading it is another story since it can go into a lot more characterization). They did enough so we know his character and move on, which is enough for me.

Also, is anyone familiar with this Megumi Wakamiya character on the Accel World site? I've only read halfway through volume 3 of the LNs(as far as a certain site has translated to English), so I have no idea if she is anime-original or not (seeing as a certain other anticipated duel avatar is still labelled as ???, I have my doubts as to whether or not Megumi is introduced later than volume 2).
She's not anime original, as to what volume she appeared in the novel, I forgot.

Yeah, I was half joking when I said that (hence the oy part ).

I forgot to mention I love Misawa's voice~

I understand why they did it that way as well. I just fear they are going to put too much emphasis on on battles and powering up going forward, and not enough on character development and exposé of the brain burst program.

My preference would have been the following to really flush out the introduction:
Episode 1: ch.01 + first half ch.02
Episode 2: second half of ch.02 + ch.03
Episode 3: ch.04

Instead we have:
Episode 1: ch.01 + ch.02
Epsidoe 2: ch.03 + first quarter of ch.04

Even so, I blame lack of sleep while watching the stream, and an entire month wait until the 3rd episode airs for potentially making my assessment more critical than normal. Hopefully we get quite a few more people who are able to watch next week. I'd normally assume it would show up here at the specified time on 4/1, but they make no mention of it on that page, or anywhere else on nicovideo for that matter.

The current translation doesn't result on any Megumi and as for novel illustrations. I'm not familiar with her at all.

Well, searching for anything related to pretty much any Japanese LN on an English search engine usually only results on what's available based on English translations (the same can be said for looking up LNs on, say, Wikipedia). Most of the information you'll want past what's translated you'll need to either ask for from people who are more familiar with it or figure out yourself by learning Japanese (I really need to work on the latter).

Edit: And if you choose the former, don't forget to ask for spoiler tags for those people who don't want to know the same things you do before reading it themselves.

I didn't mention this the other day in hopes a novel reader would come forward and provide you more detailed information, but if you're really that curious, there is a brief description of Wakamiya Megumi on Japanese Wikipedia. Search for her name 若宮恵 on that page, copy her description into a web translator, and there is your answer.

The web translator that you provide is also in japanese.... I can't understand it. I tried to click the icons below but no result. I just used google translate which I often use.
Spoiler for Wakamiya Megumi:

I linked Excite since I've found it to historically give more reliable J->E translations than Google and most other web translators (comparison below for anybody interested). For Excite, all you needed to do was paste in text and click the Japanese Flag -> American Flag button. Each translation engine has it's own strengths and weaknesses, so it never hurts to compare a couple to catch errors.

Found an HD version of May'n's concert performance of Chase the World. You'll need to turn your volume up a bit, though.

Also, I want her shorts. :P

People who are worried about Kaji's voice still, here's the Drama CD of AW volume 10 (spoilers etc.). Starting 4:28, hopefully this will convince you he's fine (if not ... ... ...).

THOSE screens look fantastic I'm really looking forward to this one now, despite the impossible plotline of a fat kid being surrounded by beutys who want to date him.

I'm guessing the author is fat lol

That'd be kind of sad if he did, but fortunately he has an average build. Who knows what he looked like when he was a kid, but chances are it was closer to the skinny lead of Sword Art Online then the fat lead of Accel World, both which he writes.

I think Kaji's voice is perfect for wimpy character like Shu.
