In episode 4 after the cable link. Chiyu cheers Haru for Haru to believe in himself and if he will still stay with KYH. He should strive to become his boyfriend rather than her pet or pawn. She is cheering for Haru and will always be.

Now Taku is allied with Haru right?

Feel free to correct me.
Taku's always been jealous of Haru because she always paid more attention to Haru, in his mind because he's always bullied but really because she sees something beyond that. Haru stopped hanging out as much with them after she made what Taku considers her "first smart decision". Taku keeps trying to be better and impress her because he's still convinced that she'll eventually recognize he's superior to the short, fat, weak guy. Taku became allied with Haru when Haru managed to beat some sense into him.
At least that's my take.

I'll have to wait and see how he behaves now, but so far I really think Taku's the last person who deserves Chiyu, with the possible exception of Araya. He has no respect for her, thinks that she's an idiot for having feelings for Haru and that if he keeps showing off she'll see the shallow light. Not to mention he did something as despiccable as bugging her so he could see anything she could see, and hear anything she could hear, at any time. With my current opinion of him, I wonder whether he had the decency not to 'follow' her into places he shouldn't be...

00Coyote is right - This show is really camp and cheesy, and nowhere is this more evident than in Episode 5.

But the great action scene visuals, the characters acting with at least some degree of consistency, and the timing of certain events, makes it all work at least decently well, imo. It's an enjoyable watch for me.

The thing is that contrivances kind of build-up, one after another, like feathers upon the back of one's suspension of disbelief. Eventually you might hit a feather that break's that back due to cumulative weight. We're not there yet, imo, but I hope that Accel World plays things a little less conventional, and a little more realistic, in future episodes.

Now that was really totally absurd. With that deus-ex-machina-ability which came out of nowhere, he was finally able to beat Cyan Pile.
Errr... the name of Burst Linkers' has something to do with their names. And Haru is Silver Crow, a bird with wings and can fly .

Well, there always be a disjointed person for a broken person, so if Haru has that problem with his own steem there is another person with a similar psique out there who can feel Haru and her are not so different and can understand each other.

For those who are confused on why 2 girls are into Haru despite his chubbiness and his self-deprecating behavior, I say this: never underestimate the power of Moe/

The girls are moe for Haru, plain and simple. They feel sorry for him and want to encourage and comfort him and in the process, they fell for him. The epitome of a reverse moe.

I don't get it, you're complaining about him lamenting that there was nothing more he could still do for the people cared for at that rather hopeless point? There's nothing particular whiny or spineless about that, because he already did everything he already could.

I know he ain't the most GAR character around, but damn, some of you ain't even giving him a chance.

Also, the anime might not have made this too clear, but the flight ability is his SP gauge ability. I admit though, the way it came up was rather deus-ex machina-ish

Ahh, that explains the Black Lotus being able to hover @around the 20:43 mark since a lotus does float on water

Why do I get the feeling that when the LN finally ends and if AW's creator is ever revealed and the anime gets up to that point, then Kawahara-sensei will be his CV?

And about Taku letting go... going back to check, that didn't happen in the LNs Just Taku begging not to get tossed down from that height to get KOed, and lose all his burst points (Lvl1 beating Lvl4 means 40 points lost from Taku, each level difference means 10 more points lost/gained)
Well yeah, as I was saying the changes made the scene more dramatic but it kinda skips his internal monologue which shows his character development... on the flipside, the changes made Taku more sincere perhaps they thought it's because of that, that they skipped Haru's thoughts.

New member here. Could the trope Single Woman Seeks Good Man be applied here as well for another why they fall for him?

During the Black Lotus transformation scene, she violated the biggest rule when it comes to magicaltransforming girls - getting nekkid first. But then I ended up HNNNG'ng enough when I saw her braided twintail and her blushing face . Overall, fun episode, but I kinda hoped Haru would just dropped that bastard Taru to oblivion.

In just a few moments I'm going to start with the fifth episode, but I want to take a delay to post comments for the fourth episode.

Very touching and very heartwarming Kuroyukihime's confession to Haru; you know after this it turns ambiguous to criticize Kuroyukihime for using Haru, especially that she got jealous the first time hearing from Haru that he direct linked so close with Chiyu.

Kuroyukihime did morally question things in the past to other Neuro Linkers in her search for the truth about Burst Link, so it is a naturally reaction from viewers to be somewhat wary of her. However, if she shows openly that degree of empathy and caring for Haru as a person and not as her servant, then it now would sound harsh from me to criticize her whole character steadfastly.

The answers as to the existence of Burst Link and Accel have yet to be answered, but at least we now know that Kuroyukihime shows affection for Haru.


Spoiler:


This show continues to amaze me even more due to the close relationships between Haru with Kuroyukihime and his friends- Taku and Chiyu.

I cannot condone Takus' actions to have done all of this, because his jealousy against Haru for feeling that the latter was bogging down the former's relationship with Chiyu as a justification.
But, I guess that one love towards one girl who has been a childhood friend between two boys who see themselves as the best of friends, then it can't be helped that rivalry ensues along with stupidity.

But, the fight between those two let them to clear their feelings and gain a better outlook of each other.
If Haru proposed to Taku to tell everything to Chiyu about their secret lives and to start over the relationship, then I trust Haru that they can do it.

The only downside I was having this big expectations that her true avatar form would have played for a future plot device in later arcs, but it served her purpose to finally show her Duel Avatar in Accel World so as to publicly proclaim throughout the Global Network to all users that she's seriously crippling down the truce and going after the other Kings.

As for the episode itself, the story and especially the dialogue is still facepalm worthy but the production value still stellar as usual, so its enough to please me.

And the "politics" in digital world actually intriguing, more focus to that instead haru bitching please.
Lol, exactly. I don't care much about how generic the plot can be. I'll continue watching as long they can keep up animation quality for the avatar battles. Just bring on more cool avatar battles and it will be all good. *Highly anticipating for the Blue King's battle because just looks so fucking boss!*

It was kind of funny when Silver Crow was "flirting" with Black Lotus, and Cyan Pile was like, "yeah, ok, I'm here you know. Why don't you go get a room?"

So essentially, with Silver Crow's new flight ability, he could potentially defeat a lot of higher level fighters and level up quickly. I wonder what his level 2 bonus ability will be?

Also, as the only one to have flight ability, wouldn't a lot of the Brain Bursters want to befriend him just for the chance to see things in flight? I'm guessing some of the other kings will at least attempt to pursue him to join them. Or maybe the hack Yellow King's group will attempt to duplicate his ability and create flight for themselves?

Also, will the ones that defeat the other level 9 Kings be Black Lotus, or does she really only intend to have Haru defeat the level 9 Kings? One needs to defeat 5 level 9 players to reach level 10. Currently, Black Lotus has defeated 1 and needs 4 to go. Haru needs to defeat 5 (but only when he reaches level 9, right?). There are currently 6 level 9 opponents that we know of (7 if you include Black Lotus). That means if Black Lotus does not kill anymore, then Haru can still spare 1 of the Kings. Hence, he could bring one of the kings to his side if need be.

Also, when a king gets killed, what happens to his followers? Do they form their own group, or do they nominate a new king? I know when I used to play, once an old guild leader quits, a new one is nominated, but the group is never the same. It breaks apart, and new members make of the core.

As for ChiYURI, I wonder how she will react to the backdoor confession and Brain Burst program? Will she ask to join right away, or will she wait until Haru is better before she joins? Will the dynamic of the 3 friendships change, or are they all one big happy family again? I'm going to bet on the latter. Actually, the group is now a group of 4, if you include Kuroyukihime. Judging by the preview, we'll have glasses girl introduced in the next episode, and she looks like she is powerful.

I also expect that Haru's harem will be very colorful, with each member representing a different color. When cute twin tails red head girl comes in, I'm expecting her to be pink ranger... err... pink something. Chiyu will probably be pink or yellow (based on yellow pikachu like stuffed animal she was hugging).

It's a long week away until the next episode...
