Accel World Science-Fiction TV Anime's New Promo Posted

posted on
1/2-year anime by Sunrise, Masakazu Obara to premiere in April

The official YouTube channel for the Accel World television anime series began streaming a new 101-second promotional video on Thursday.

The two-cours (two-quarter or half-year) anime will premiere in April with the same cast as the previously revealed drama CD cast, with the addition of Shintarō Asanuma as Takumu. Masakazu Obara is directing the anime at Sunrise with CG work by Orange. Hiroyuki Yoshino is overseeing the series scripts, and Yukiko Aikei is serving as character designer and animation director.

Reki Kawahara wrote the original light novels for both Accel World and Sword Art Online, another project that is getting animated for television.

The "future teen" story of Accel World revolves around a bullied middle school boy named Haruyuki. One autumn day in 2046, he has an encounter with Kuroyukihime, the prettiest girl in his school, that changes his life. Through a mysterious piece of software from Kuroyukihime, Haruyuki learns of the existence of the virtual "Accel World." In that moment, the lowest of the "school caste" becomes "Burst Linker," a knight defending a princess.
