The Light Novel Accel World series has received a somewhat troubled anime adaptation. While some hate it, others love it and find it much better than Sword Art Online. The big problem is that after the 2012 anime adaptation we never had any information about a new season. And due to the low success it is difficult to find information about the Novel on the Internet. In today's article we will try to explain some things that happen in novel and share some spoilers for those who don't mind.
The anime has only adapted around 4 novels, while we currently have over 20 volumes. This means that a lot has happened that piques our curiosity. I find it impossible to summarize the 20 volumes in one article, so I will mention just a few important curiosities and the direction the story takes to satisfy your curiosity.
I will try to summarize in a simple way without giving too many spoilers, just so you know the direction the story has taken. Any errors or suggestions, thanks for the comments.
Arc Summary – Chrome Disaster
One of the first arcs that take place after the Anime is that of the cursed armor that was inside the Silver Crown.
At the volume 5 Lime Bell attempts to retrieve Sky Raker's legs, but to no avail as her legs were severed by Black Lotus using the incarnate system. In this novel takes place a great race called the Sky Race. During the race the cursed armor becomes aware of Silver Crow, but Lime Bell uses her ability to rewind time to temporarily restore Haru's consciousness.
At the volume 6 Haru goes to the second meeting of the 6 Kings of Pure Colors. He's been given 7 days to get rid of Chrome Disaster (cursed armor) or he'll get a big bounty on his head. Haru asks for help from Shinomiya Utai (former member of nega nebulous) to remove the Chrome Disaster parasite. In this volume was also introduced the KIT ISS (Incarnate System Study Kit) that allows to use the incarnate system with ease, however the KIT stimulates the negative emotions of the user making him more violent.
At the volume 7, Silver Crow learned the armor's full history through a dream sequence while staying inside the Imperial Palace in the Unlimited Field. Taku ends up getting infected with the ISS KIT. We already volumes 8 and 9 many things happen, until finally Haru manages to seal the cursed armor that now becomes the "Fate" armor.
At the volume 10 Aqua Current and Kuroyukihime go to Okinawa.
Summary of the ISS Kit and Oscillatory Universe arc
Of the volumes 11 to 16 the arc of the ISS Kit that we have already mentioned. This kit was created by Acceleration Search Society a shadowy and mysterious organization that utilizes the illegal implanted chip that Noumi used.
In these volumes we discover that Kuroyukihime's sister is the white queen known as Transient Eternity or White Cosmos. She is one of the main antagonists of the series and president of the Acceleration Research Society.
In the past the sister of Kuroyukihime tricked her into killing the red king. Your objective was to get the Seven Roses weapon. Kuroyukihime got angry, tried to kill her sister in real life, so she ended up being kicked out of the house and started being treated like someone who had mental illness. That's why no one came to visit her in the hospital after the accident.
At the volume 15 we meet Metatron, an artificial intelligence that helps Haru. In the volumes ahead of deny nebulous and other kings join together to battle the Oscillatory Universe legion of the white queen and the ARS.
Origin of Kuroyukihime
Kuroyukihime was born from an artificial womb and is considered a Machine Child, explaining why the barcode on her neck. In the code it is written 20320930 which is literally the date of birth of Kuroyukihime 30/09/2032, records indicate that she had a gestation of 13 months.
She was born with STL technology which was acquired by RECT from Yuuki Shouzou who created Alfheim Online and also from the Kamura company where her father works. Interesting the connection that the name Kamakura has kuroyukihime, both are written with the same ideograms [黒雪姫].
Interesting facts is that Kuroyukihime has a birthday on the same day that Asuna was born, and as Kuroyukihime's parents controlled her artificial pregnancy that lasted 13 months, they probably waited for this specific day that must have some meaning and connection.
Accel world trivia and spoilers
remember the Ash Roller? That skull on the motorcycle? That's a woman called Kusakabe Rin. Her character is a male because the avatar belongs to her brother who is in a coma. She confesses to Haru and says she loves him.
The romance between Haru and Kuroyukihime doesn't progress much, Fuuko and Niko keep teasing Haru, and in Novel 16 he seems to like Metatron, but she appears to be an Artificial Intelligence.
The Imperial Palace appears a lot in future volumes of the novel. Chiyoda's palace located in the heart of Tokyo appears in the background in most of the game's scenarios. The big problem is that the palace is an arena in the game, but there is no camera in the place, making it a place full of mysteries. He is considered by all players to be "impenetrable" as he is protected by the Four Gods. Kuroyukihime believes that this is the end of the game.
seven arcs “The Seven Stars of the Accelerated World”. These are the strongest weapons in the game, 3 are believed to be located inside the Imperial Palace.
