Aye, I think the characters' traits were exaggerated for the sake of comedy; this thing is about halfway between a regular episode and an omake. Haru isn't usually this pathetic, Chiyu isn't usually this callous, and being Taku isn't usually this much suffering.

Speaking of Chiyu, she sure did overreact to the question KYH posed...

"Am I really that intimidating?"
"O_o Haaaaaaaaaaaiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii? o__________O"

Yoshida reacted more calmly whenever Shana asked her how to make babies. No wonder Taku never talked to her about his feelings, Chiyu's as sensitive as the posters from the Accel World 15 thread a brick wall.

Yeah basically. The only one that was really their usual self was KYH. As for her question, I think it was more her asking if she has too much of a commanding/overwhelming presence to which the answer would kind of be yes. Yet how do you really describe it without dampening her spirits, especially if you're Chiyu. She does have a habit of being shall we say...very noticeable whenever she's around or showing up at a location. She can't just be there, she has to BE there in most scenes. Showing up on a heavy metal horse, striking poses, waking up from the virtual hospital be, being dressed like she usually is in general. I think this picture best sums it up though.

I really liked this ova. For me it was a "throw your brain out, and just have fun" (in other words, don't take it seriously) experience. I don't see this being any indication of this being canon, but the setting of this actually feels like it's canon. I wouldn't be surprised if Kawahara asked the staff to add certain details here and there for the sake of expanding the accel universe.

The following is what I also found awesome:

- Pig Avatar, with GUNS! I loved it. He was also definitely into it, as you know that he wouldn't let kuroyukihime, even if she's bait, fall as another victim. Then there's also Haru's quote on not loosing in an FPS.
- Chiyu 'using' Cyan Pile, and how she was just doing wte the hell she wanted
- Loled at Taku getting fisted. A part of me believes, that a part of him 'enjoyed' that xD
- Haru about to say Kyh name is another nice touch.
- The not brain burst cosply of Kyh and Chiyu did look cute

Overall, definitely worth watching.

The reasons why I enjoyed this OVA much were 1) unlike other OVA standalone episodes this one clearly continues from where main TV series finished, though not in the context of the overall plot.

The OVA acknowledges the Noumi incident, and Chiyu is actively hanging around with Kuroyukihime, Haru, and Taku in this game-mission.

2) This OVA presents fun enjoyment while also dealing with the current insecurities between Haru and Kuroyukihime's relationship. The boy's beating too much around the world, because he feels he cannot do much for an overly independent girl like Kuroyukihime.
Truth is that Haru gives too much credit to his princess. In the inside, the girl is just as shy and frail at issues like confronting their companionship, and only wishes time to time to be comforted and lead by Haru.

3) Haru's Pig avatar with FPS guns and military gear is the RULE!!

4) Chiyu went to crazy, berserker, Niko mode. Niko in homage to the current Red King who she goes all cahoots and bananas showering and nuking endlessly everything on sight with missiles, bombs, bullets, and all while letting out her demented laugh.

Lol, that's an amazing pic. Kuroyukihime and Akari are like the opposite ends of character presence, most likely causing the later to get overshadowed by characters not even in that show.

Anyhow, Kuroyukihime's outfit reminds me of a certain Fate Testarossa's for some reason. Must be that backside showing.

Now I know where KYH came from.

She was the result of Jail Scaglietti combining Fate Testarossa's DNA with Akemi Homura's.

Very awesome OVA, just would have been nice if the relationship between KYH & Haru didn't feel like it went so far backwards.

Late to the party, waited 'til I got my hands on the second OVA as well.

I liked this a lot, there were some awkward parts but the positives outshine them.

I guess the most memorable thing about this for me would be Chiyu's usage of 'Cyan Pile', while watching I couldn't help but think she made better use of it than Taku.

Oh, and being Taku is fisting suffering.

Chiyu didn't seem limited by Cyan Pile's usual Special Meter requirements, so it wouldn't be fair to say she used it better.

If Takumu could fire off so many Lightning Cyan Spikes normally, he would be doing it.

Exactly, I meant to say that Cyan Pile in Brain Burst was too limited compared to how we saw it in Accel Assault.

They're not quite the same, either, what with the Driver containing the spikes and being used to maneuver in low-gravity.

Not that we've seen any low-gravity stages in Brain Burst, though.
