Well, I can't really comment on an episode that hasn't aired, but I really really really really really really really really want Nomi to DIE! Slowly! And painfully!

I knew that cursed armor would manifest sooner or later, Nomi's lucky to still have his head attached. Next time, he could wind up having his soul devoured, and I wouldn't shed a tear for the jerk. I hate him more than I do Yellow Radio, and that's saying something. They definitely made him despicable enough, and I doubt anyone will mourn him once he's gone, permanently. Hasta la vista, Nomi.

I... have to disagree.

I think that Noumi doesn't deserve to die (just yet), especially not with the situation he's in (low on points and all...) Somehow, it gives me that something bad will happen if you lose BB.... just can't seem to put my hand on it...

...and Niko stole the whole episode, yet again. Blood Leopard (Kawasumi Ayako) also made a good first impression. I would join the red legion if possible .

Haru & Taku meet Yuniko.
Chiyu siding with Nomi is baffling.
Niko teaching Taku the incarnate system.
That girl sure has a horrible personality.
Well, at least she's helping them out.
The Blood Leopard waitress & Haru on an info quest.
Seems like Red Legion members have similar personalities.

so what are the primary theme of each color?

Red = Range
Blue = Close Range

From seeing the brief glimpses of the other kings.

Green = Defense
Yellow = Illusion

Black = Blades(?)

Seeing Niko and Blood Leopard is a really great breath of fresh air from the suffocating atmosphere of Haru's school.

- LOL at the yaoi fangirls
- I'm in love with both sides of Niko
- I'm really wondering what Niko named her Incarnate attack
- Sincle Blood Leopard says "K" and "np", it makes me wonder if she says "www" or "lol" when she wants to laugh.
- That's the most realistic arcade rendition I've seen in an anime
- Seeing the next ep's preview of Nomi's and Chiyu's expressions re-ignited the rage.

*watches the episode*

Wow, so it seems Nomi's making life miserable for everyone, not just the main cast. Ten to one he's also Rust Jigsaw, would make sense for him to have more than one identity so no one figures out who he really is. What a despicable character, yet he plays the part well, I'll definitely give him that.

And I loved the debut of Blood Leopard, quite the direct one, isn't she? ^^;; Poor Haru, always gets into the stickiest of situations. Can't wait for next week's episode, Determination.

Niko is awesome.
Freaked out Niko is twice as awesome (I rewatched her "henshin" scene from girly imouto to pissed off boss multiple times)
Pard is a treat too.

==> The Red Legion is making everything better ^_^

Time to end the Rage arc once and for all.

Haruyuki is manned up and kisses Niko's foot like crazy. Or, is he really into her feet. Niko has to kicks him while putting down her skirt. The Leopard maid is quite straightforward. She is refined, but she ignores all unnecessary courtesy.

All hail Niko! The Red Queen has spoken and made her presence known.

Also, Blood Leopard is as great as expected. She really is straight to the point. Considering her demeanor and how she treats Haru like a little kid, she must have spent decades in the Accel World.

When they went to the Yellow Legion's territory, my initial reaction was, "yup, the Yellow Legion is behind all this hacking." Well, I still believe the Yellow Legion played a part in all of this, nonetheless, even if they are not directly involved.

I'm quite sure that Rust Jigsaw is another character that is part of that new Accel World order that Nomi is part of. We already saw one in the Okinawa side story with KYH, so it is not surprising to see more. Besides, the intro showed 3 different characters in the Nomi group picture. We saw 2 of them already.

Now, on to next week, where hopefully, the arc will come to a close. I don't see Taku in the preview, so I'm guessing the arc might not end until the episode after.

Speaking of Taku, he has really turned into a great character from the not so great one earlier on.

In the end, this show is 24 episodes long. So, if they end this arc after next episode, I'm not clear how they'll fill the remaining two episodes (of course, perhaps novel readers may know). I guess I just assumed that this arc would take us all the way to the end of the season, but I guess we'll see. (Answers to this speculation aren't for this thread anyway.)

So looks like they're going to dwell more so into people not showing up on the player's lists and stuff.

Might be a little bit obsessive or something but...I can never get enough of Niko.~

Finally getting to see what Pard is like it very nice, IMHO.
Finding out that IS can be blocked or enhanced by your trauma or scarring, that was pretty awesome.

...surprisingly not much else to say...probably due to Niko.~

I always knew that maids were great
Can a 16 year old actually drive a motorcycle in Japan, or is it fiction?

Niko is back, her changes in facial expressions are always funny.
I lol'd when Niko explained IS characteristics, it was what we already knew from Haru vs Noumi fight, but then the third characteristic: They're shiny!
By the same principles, Noumi's IS is enhanced abilities, the same Taku is trying to achieve?

Quite surprised that there is a neutral battleground in the yellow territory, was it founded before the 9 kings? The bartender is a burst linker as well, seems like he already knows what he wants to become in the future.
The amount of money bet is rather small, but imagine 10 years later, when most of them have found jobs, how much would they bet?

Edit: It's a running gag, but if Haru&Taku were in an all boys school, they'd totally enter the yayoi route

For an ordinary motorcycle license, the minimum age is 16. A heavy motorcycle (400 cc or higher engine displacement) license requires a minimum age of 18. Now it's up to you go figure out if what she rode was an ordinary motorcycle or heavy.

I bet that the hacking issue where the hacker's name does not show up on the matching list will be solved by the next episode. Which then leaves the Nomi beat down after that, since then they will be able to duel him at anytime.
