Accel World episode 03

I had to. I couldn’t just leave this anime alone. I have to write at least something about it. I fell in love with this piece ever since I first saw it. You see, I am a huge Twilight series fan (of the anime, not that gay vampire/werewolf bullsh*t), and this anime really looks a lot like it. In fact; Accel World is the closest thing to it right now.

Let’s talk about Harayuki, one of the main characters, for a bit. He is a fat, jolly and overall decent guy. Harayuki has a lot of good points, but also a lot of bad ones. I think that his biggest weakness, him being ignorant to all the people around him, will be a tough one to overcome. He believes too much in people and soon forgets who his true friends are. To simply things; he lets himself get used by people. To some he’s just a punching bag or a food delivery guy, and to users a strong virtual bodyguard. Everyone wants something from him, but I don’t think any one of them wants him for who he is. Just for what he could do for them.

Sigh, it’s really sad when something like that happens. It’s even sadder when the used continue their lifestyle without do something about the user(s). I think Harayuki has a tough road ahead of him, especially since he found out that Chiyuri, a girl whom he thought was one of his best friends, turned out to be a brain burster, and is most likely friendly to him because she wants him in her team. This is still not verified, but Harayuki did find a backdoor during his search. I really hope I’m wrong for his sake, because that would really sting if your childhood friend would use you like that.

The next episode should clarify a lot of these things. I think it’s time for Harayuki to grow up and grow some balls. Ahh~ I’m really exciting about this anime. I know it’s a strange thing to say, especially coming from a guy, a straight guy I might add, but I would really like to see him lose some weight. I’m pretty sure he could become a babe magnet if he worked on losing weight. Hell, it isn’t just to become a babe magnet. He could use any and all confidence. He’s just a weak little lamb right now.
