    While i really like Accel World anime and it’s LN, i can’t really said about the game here.T_T

    I hope for this one, they will actually polish the battle system more and continue maintain/improve the other part of the game.T_T

      If only Team tales or CC2 develop it…oh and i still hate the MC wishy-washy attitude….ahh dammit wish he change that attitude after 26 episode in 1 seasons of anime he is getting nowhere as he is in episode 1 X_X

      • Mrgrgr and Unacceptable World

        Haha. Well, his attitude does improve a bit already there.^_^ I mean at least, he has the balls to face Noumi head on even though he already loses his wings. The only thing left for him now is to improve his confidence in RL lol.

        •  well his confidence does improve a little but…. well its going to be a spoiler to mention on what happens to his attitude and confidence beyond ep 26

          • Ohoho I smell a Shuutler coming. *cues fans squealing*

    • Have you played it?? Any remarks/plot dump/tidbits if you had??

      • LynxAmali

         Things are swapped around here and there. I’m only still early on but one of the major differences is that you have Chiyu, Taku and Haru all on your team before the Scarlet Rain fight (in which it’s just Haru in both the anime and novel.)

      • Mrgrgr and Unacceptable World

        I have played them there and there are indeed some plot differences like some battle where we had party fighting together but in the shows and LN, Silver Crow is facing the foes alone. But all of those is not a big problem for me.
        The whole problem is the battle system where they actually implemented traditional rpg system like good old DQ there but rather than giving us normal attack, skill or item selection, they give us “skill point” game system. 
        The battle system gives you a number of point(Which is different towards each characters and of course black lotus had highest amount for the points as she is already LV-9) which you will decide where to invest each turn.

        There are four status. Attack, Accuracy, Evade, Defence. The more points you attach to the status will increase the “ranks” of the status. However it is not as simple as that as the increase in Attack means the decrease in Defence and also the increase in Evade/Accuracy will cause the decrease with the other status there.

        This created quite complex gameplay there where you need to consider whether you should invest more in attack and accuracy this turn or become a tank totally this turn. You are also able to use your skills with your skills gauge just like the shows where the gauge will be filled when you are damaged.

        While the battle system sounds nice here, it is actually a very slow game.T_T

        Where you are not even able to actually skip the battle animation and relies to much on luck. I hope for the next one, they will be able to improve the gameplay there or maybe ask CC2 to actually help develop this game.
        Using .hack formula should not be a bad idea.^_^

        Well thats my two cents about the game, hope it is informative enough.^_^

        • Btw how much do they cover?? Up to the anime or until further LN?? 
          (I saw Moemi doing stuff w/h them in a trailer…)

          • Mrgrgr and Unacceptable World

            Yup, they only cover till anime end there but they did show several unknown characters that will only show up there.

            Which is probably the main reason why the are going to come out with second title for the game there.^_^

  • kool_cid414

    I find it odd personally to call her black snow princess kuroyukihime senpai sounds better to me but I guess it’s just a personal preference.

    • LynxAmali

      It’s the literal translation just rearranged.

      Hime= Princess
      Yuki= Snow
      Kuro= Black.

      I can see why people don’t find it all that great. But I like it.

      • kool_cid414

         I know it’s the direct translation it just sounds like less of an actual name this way rather than kuroyukihime but that’s just my opinion and I respect yours as well.

    • IMO I prefer Princess Snow Black or for the sake of simplicity, KYH.

      • Göran Isacson

        Gotta admit, I like the ring of Princess Snow Black. It sounds like a nice riff on “Snow White”, and rolls off the tongue real easy.

  • dr000d

    So…I stopped watching the anime at like …ep 6. Did it get better? Is it worth watching the rest?

    • Depends. I can’t really comment since I have too many show on hand so I kinda backlogged it but give the LN a read then decide. Its the best way to check.

  • Hope they change the mechanic on 2nd one TT_TT
    The 1st game mechanic is ridiculous difficult, I hope they improve the graphic too, well you know… It was a big issues on the 1st one… You can’t really tell how the colors goes from light to dark on PSP version…

    • Mrgrgr and Unacceptable World

      I don’t know about PSP condition there as i played PS3 version.(For the sake of the OVA lol.^_^)

      Is the graphics really bad there? As for my PS3 version, the graphics and color looks great even though the battle system is disastrous.(The dating system though is really fun there and they had nice VA too.^_^)

      • LynxAmali

         The PSP version has some very wonky shading issues. Everything seems way darker than it needs to be.

        • Mrgrgr and Unacceptable World

          Is that so?O.o Lucky me here, i actually choose to buy the PS3 version rather than PSP lol.

          Well, maybe thats the main reason they give us a PS3 version?^_^
