Fair enough. Makes one wonder just what kind developer that created a game with a mechanic that can be abused like crazy in real life.

www, Mahouka's launch sales is pretty much on par with SAO. A pity Mahouka has less prints in the first print, so it still lags behind somewhat. So I wonder why they are advertising a series that don't have stock for some volumes and need a reprint, www. Though this level of advertising is nothing compared to GA in Nyarko, www.

No, because they're kids.

Who's to say anything? Who's to say those who stay level 9 without even trying to reach level 10 won't be punished? It's about faith and curiosity, not about what they already know, which is next to nothing.

I don't want to point fingers, but she is the bad guy. Looks can be deceiving but don't forget what she's done.

Its like you would play some mmorpg, Lineage 2 for example. And after some time one of clanmates with keys to clan warehouse, steal all of your clan Raidboss epic drops, then Delete your clan leader/leaders accounts, and run away.
Now to get that drops sometimes HUNDREDS of people need to work together to gain it. Now 1 person says "fuck you" and spit on their work and steal the benefits for herself.

That is KYH behaviour want it or not she is a selfish B...ch.
And when did she ever do something like that? The other kings weren't her guild. Her betrayal to them was just breaking a truce.

She did betray her own army in a sense, but she didn't do it purposely. She panicked and did something stupid - kill the red king, and thus turn everyone against her. I assume what followed wasn't pleasant for her followers. She didn't steal from the guild or anything like that.

Though there isn't really a "good vs evil" situation. Kuroyukihime's desire to see the end just outweighs logic. The time it'd take to make lvl 10 would be better served by learning how to track server connections and hunting down the developer in real life. (But that's a world building problem)
Setting aside the problem of them being just kids (which would make the investigation difficult), since they can play on any network, it's likely the game is contained in the players' Neuro Link. Probably some kind of distributed architecture. Sure, there are system updates from time to time, but it's a lot easier to cover the tracks of just that.

I do not believe the creator of Brain Burst would troll like this, since when a person finally reaches level 10, if the program is removed, then their fellow Brain Burst friends in real life will know as well. News will spread among the Brain Bursters, and no one in level 9 will ever fight each other again.

Then again, there is the possibility that the creator will remove Brain Burst from everyone once someone reaches level 10. If someone already knows the secrets of level 10, then they can tell everyone else. At that point, the desire to reach level 10 will no longer be there.

Also the beginning scene probably might have been twins. That's what I'm thinking.

Given the way the story is setup, the options are the creator is malevolent or he's trying to help all of these children. So, in the end, it'll either be "everyone can use Brain Burst" or the entire thing ends and everyone loses it. There's not a lot of in-between room, given the cost to get to Level 9 then the insanely stepper cost to get to Level 10. It's either a goal he doesn't want reached or one that reaching the goal serves a very specific result. (Something like: "we needed all of the points to activate the next Evolution of the program" or something)

Though, the requirements to get to level 10 leave open so many questions that a "good reason" is very likely to never be offered. The Game Theory aspects for why the level 9s would never choose to fight aren't just something you get around. The only way to be level 9 and truly work at level 10 is to say "damn the consequences, ramming speed!", then somehow have a group of people behind you for support to get to that point. Which is what the series sets up, but it does render all of our leads as villains (at worst) or anti-heroes (at best) in the Accelerated World. But with how straight they're playing their actions, it's hard to really take that part seriously.

I'm viewing this as .hack//Sign & Bleach merged together. It's Bleach//Sign. It's pretty with fun fights and some interesting characters. Just don't look too closely at the details and you'll be fine.

So they already got to Aqua? Thats good considering that scanlated manga chapters are up to after the finish of his and Aqua fight against other ppl.
Her/his background/story in BB is quite nice imo.

Well, that explains one reason why there are few burst linkers. They made the same mistake as Haru. As they say, look before you leap.

Looks Taku has quit his kendo club now and wants to truly settle the match with Black Lotus fairly.

Though the Blue Knight seems quite merciful. He let Cyan Pile join with Black Lotus and not execute him. I think he is a decent guy.

It is pretty much the same situation as those in MMO's who spent their points on the wrong stat or skill.

Haru is just way excited it's quite normal and even a pro make mistakes.

This episode was seriously hilarious when I'm watching it in live stream. the people's reaction was also priceless together with the episode but it's kinda irritating if it's filling the screen

Taku being all serious guy quits kendo club and devote himself to become help to the black king.

Just watched Episode 6. It was pretty good. A solid follow-up to the epic events of Episode 5.

Haru and Kuro have a nice romance going so far. The shyness between them is pretty cute, and brought a smile to my face during this episode.

Chiyu playing a justified tsundere made for some good moments too. I really liked the scene where Haru and Taku have to get back into her good graces, and the way the whole "proving the worth of Burst Linking" played out.


My take on Taku is that he's sincere in wanting to patch up his friendship with Haru and help Haru out, and that he also wants to make things work out with Chiyu. That being said, I get the impression that he's still on a "Search and Destroy" mission when it comes to Kuro, and may be feeling divided over that or compromised by it.


It's good to finally see the glasses-wearing girl in the OP show up. I like how she's the Burst Link Bouncer/Bodyguard. That's a neat twist.

All-told, Accel World continues to flesh out its world and develop its characters/plot in a pretty engaging and captivating way. I agree with Archon_Wing - 8/10 for Episode 6, and I'm definitely looking forward to more.

Well, for the fact that you lose 300 points to level up to level 2, Aqua Current probably just saved all her points and never leveled up. For all we know, she might have 1,000,000 points by now.

Btw, Haru has not chosen his level up ability yet. I wonder what he'll choose?

Another issue with all the level 9 fighting each other is that it could end up as a never ending cycle. For example, if Black kills 4 level 9s, and Silver kills another 3, that means that they do not have enough unless Black kills Silver. However, if Silver kills Black, then Black comes up short and Silver also comes up short. Also, the next level 9 guy can come and kill Silver. It is not easy to win 5 matches against other level 9 guys.

Vanquish, the Blue Knight, is supposed to be honorable. However, his twin bodyguards seem like they follow the Bushido path, executing those they consider dishonorable. I guess honor can mean however a person wants it to be.

The end scene when Kuroyukihime brain bursts with Taku, I wonder if they set it up beforehand? It looks they will fight next episode.

i realli like how the story is developing and that theres not much melodrama, but i didnt quite understand that part with cyan pile and the blues, is that supposed to happen in a timeframe ahead the rest of the episode? i also would like that they explain how guilds or groups do work in BB, also i know they dont exactly the same, but taku keeps reminding me of the protagonist of
