Hmm, from how Kurohime talking about the apprentice and master relationship. Could Red Rider's girl friend be Kurohime's master? It sounded like she was betrayed by her master?

Zeh holy cow. 1 Day IRL = 3 years in the Accel World? Man, I think one would go crazy or severly dysfunction because you don't sleep, eat or tire in long period of time. I would think they would forget about how hunger, sleep or even the urge to go to the bathroom would feel like.

After all that careful planning and discussions they still ended up being tricked with ease.

Well to be fair I doubt that many people would expect to be tricked by a seemingly uninvolved 3rd party.
They were all to focused on Niko trying to pull something and wound-up ignoring a ambush from elsewhere.

I still think she's getting offed. Probably right before the climax/ending.
This is an ongoing light novel with 11 volumes currently. That is HIGHLY unlikely. Unless they go with an original ending, there's a chance that even the 2nd cour of the series might not be the last.

If we go by anime cliches, her master will most definitely turn out to the White King, with the black and white contrast, sworn enemies. Plus, Kuroyukihime mentioned that she thought her master will 'light up' her world....hmmm

And the parent is a female...

You mean Purple King? If the Purple King knew who KYH is in real life, I'm sure she would have tried to retaliate by this point. In the episode, KYH is very angry at her mentor/parent. It is more likely that the Purple King is more angry at KYH than KYH is at the Purple King.

Let's take a check on all the kings. There is Yellow, Red, Green, Blue, Purple, and White.

-Red is a friendly.
-Blue is already shown and is too honorable, so that excludes him.
-Purple seems more angry at her than the other way around. That leaves Yellow, Green, and White.
-She was working with Green before to help fight the previous Chrome Disaster, so there is that possibility. However, KYH showed no anger towards him in that review, so I don't think it is him either.
-Yellow is shown to be deceitful, so there is a high chance it is him, considering the talk about it this episode and his appearance in it.
-The only other choice is White, but we know absolutely nothing about him.

Spoiler for Yellow Legion Notes:

I feel fresh after the show resumed from its two-weeks hiatus.

Now, all the theories concerning the identity of KYH's guardian seem interesting, and I believe it could actually affect the outlook of the bond Haru holds for her.


Pretty heroic and dramatic for Haru to declare that he'll rather uninstall Brain Burst than having to fight KYH before her. Under normal circumstances that route could play out, but I strongly have the feeling with the Kings starting to move and things going messy from now on my guess is that it won't be Haru's choice anymore to play that decision.


The Yellow King pretty much ran his real colors if he went with all the trouble to plan this scheming trickery far ahead, or I think he simply took advantage of Chrome Disaster's rampage to wait for any opening for Black Lotus to show herself along with her Legion; killing multiple birds with a stone, if we also take into consideration that the Yellow King won't miss either the chance to get rid of Scarlet Rain; if he can use Chrome Disaster's rampage as a venue to do so it might be possible, so as long as he doesn't get involved too much, but the right amount of time to have Black Lotus disposed of.

Yeah this shows pace is almost perfect for me. I like those shows where you never feel the inkling to check the time code. Heck I love it when shows use their time well period.

Haru's school avatar (pink pig) is as high as a knee, the staff must really like to make him super deformed

Great episode, the neutral zone looks fantastic, I imagined it more like a zone where the various stages (purgatory, swamp etc.) make up the field. This field reminds me of Tron Legacy for some reason.

Didn't know Taku could summon and dismiss his spike, is it something the staff added or from the author?

Emergency landing in a crater, it added a nice dramatic touch to it. Yellow Radio reminds me of Piedmon, from the first Digimon show

Haru was kinda liking that he had two girls around him ^^
Chiyu as Burst Linker, good or not really?
Who knew master-protege link could be a double edged sword..
Niko isn't as bad as I originally though, she's more of a tsundere than anything else.
Unlimited burst in the huge Accel World... now that was very interesting.
Well.... they sure got surrounded pretty quick.

Yup its kinda dumb unless there is a system admin who sends invites like to some closed betas for some games.
First of all some of the invites probably didn't work and player child didn't get a proper working installation.
Then comes the people who loose all their points and get a forced uninstall before they can get a child.

Basically this game should already be long dead. Not to mention that admin at start had to send thousands of invites.



Waiting for lime bell.

I'm leaning against Red Rider as well. The way she spoke about it, with the "not wanting you to meet them", and "as a Legion master and as a girl" leads me to believe that:

1) They're still a burst linker
2) They're female

And since she was close to Red Rider without being parent/child, I was leaning toward the Purple Lady (or whatever the Purple King's name is, I'm going by what Nickel Doll called her a few episodes back). It would explain why betraying Red Rider hurts her so much. However, since Kuroyukihime doesn't want to fight this person out of fear of real life retaliation, even upon defeat, I don't think it'll turn out to be a King. If it were a King, then all she'd have to do is off the parent and it'd be over, due to the forced uninstall and memory-wipe. It's likely some level 7 or 8 player with the skill or power equivalent to that of a King.

Pretty sure all 8 volumes of the dvd/bd are solicited, so it's not split. It just takes place over 2 cours.

Aww, it seems KYH cut her fingers while trying to cook something for Haru. And now she's pointing the knife at us. Oh boy.

I'm not convinced KYH's parent's a king. She said that she won't fight her parent no matter how much she wants to, and yet she turned against the kings in the worst way.

Also, I feel sorry for him but Taku's so cute when he's dejected.

KYH mentioned that it is only that way right now. It is possible that the designer changed the program, and once upon a time, a player can have multiple invites. Also, if the population gets too low, they can always apply a patch and allow more players to enter.

You make a good point about the potential to be a non-King. I'm sure we'll find out someday, since very little is known about KYH's background. She was very close to this person, at one point. If we see her right now, she is essentially alone. KYH has not shown another friend, family, or anyone at this point. It is quite strange to be alone for so long. It's like Haru is her first true friend since we've known her.

The name is Purple Thorn if I my memory is correct. Assuming Purple Thorn is KYH parent, if KYH wins the fight, Thorn's BB will get uninstalled and that would be the end. If KYH loses though, her BB will be uninstalled. Thorn could get revenge for her lover (Red Rider) on a KYH who doesn't really have any kind of defence against real life.

Thorn could get revenge for her lover (Red Rider) on a KYH who is clueless on why she is targeted from malice. To a 13-14 year old girl, being harassed constantly might even lead her to suicide.
Though I may read too far into it.
Since when does losing Brain Burst lead to memory erasure?
Unless you are hinting at something spoilerific.
