Sorry for kinda derailing the topic but I couldn't ignore these posts considering I'm a avid e-sports (Starcraft: Brood War & and Starcraft 2) follower.

Let me give you the face of one of the most popular (and currently the best SC2 player in the world atm, though this title changes on a monthly basis):

MarineKingPrime

Yeh that's right. He's a real life shota. Fangirls baaaaw over him so bad it's actually beyond hilarious .

Now for something slightly older and fabulous:

Bisu

Yep, another player that has a massive female fanbase.

Ok I'll stop here before I start spamming more offtopic stuff.

*goes off to the Stacraft thread*


Back on topic, you know this opener episode was excellent. I came in expecting nothing and although virtual reality premise is nothing new, and in a way this is one of those "otaku wet dream" type animes with the whole fat guy able to get a drop dead gorgeous girl, but who cares, the execution was solid.

The only thing I went wtf is the ages of the people. 13 for the MC and 14 for the butterfly queen. Lol anime with their age again

Me thinks that people are getting too hung up on the fact that the main character isn't the usual "normal looking (but actually bishounen when it matters) and kind hearted but awkward male harem hero". Some don't even give it a watch before judging it (this is what I really don't understand...)
Also, it's funny since this isn't a harem anyway.

Give it a watch. You like it, then you like it. You don't, then you don't. No harm. no foul and all those pretty words...

When they started talking about the different weaknesses and strengths of the colours, the first thing that popped up in my mind was....

Pokemon

Watch this one absolutely : there's a fat guy in it but this isn't a harem because he isn't in love with more than 5 girls.

Actually, it doesn't matter if it's a harem or not.

Face it, fat protagonist are used only in 2 types of shows. Full out sitcom comedy and ultra-serious films. Accel World is neither - it's not a sitcom type comedy with a string of non-stop gags nor is it ultra-serious with all it's fanservice.

Accel World is for most part your "fantasy" wish-fulfillment type show, that's what it's being marketed as anyway, hence it's protagonist is very unusual. Would it kill the show, I don't know. Would it have been better if they just used the usual "vulnerable loser bishounen", IMHO probably.

I never thought of that.... I suppose it's possible. I would expect a scare like that, but I doubt it'll actually be the case.

The important thing to make a harem is the girls' feelings for the MC.

For now, there are only two, one of which has a boyfriend. So, not very haremish.

What bad personality? He's not a saint, but he was having a bad day. That was following many other bad days. Getting cranky when a friend refuses to let you escape is understandable.

Are people still talking about the main protagonist is fat?
Really guise?
He's like one of the most original looking MC in a while

And his design is probably to response to the typical otaku japanese fans anyway. Main MC like that make them more comfortable than some cool, hot, super hero dude or something.

Who care what he look like as long as the anime is good? Beside am I the only one that find him cute....He look like the meat bun type that you want to hug...:P

I think its mostly because his design looks weird than because he's fat.
