Accel World Season 2 is the highly anticipated sequel to one of the most popular animes. The series is based on the Japanese light novel series written by Reki Kawahara and illustrated by HiMA. Along with the manga and anime, two video games were also released.
The series first began publication in ASCII Media Work’s Dengeki Bunko. ASCII is also the publisher behind ‘Eromanga Sensei’ and ‘Golden Time’. The manga adaptation was illustrated by Hiroyuki Aigamo and 8 volumes have been released so far. An anime film titled ‘Accel World: Infinite Burst’ premiered in Japan in 2016. Here’s everything you need to know about Accel World Season 2.
Accel World Season 2 Release Date
The first season of the series aired from April 2012 to September 2012 with 24 episodes. With more than a decade, the anime remains unfinished. There has been no confirmation on whether there will be an Accel World Season 2. With plenty of source material, it’s only a matter of time before it is adapted.
What to Expect in Accel World Season 2?
With no confirmation on whether there will be an Accel World Season 2, the plot remains unknown as of now. The series follows Haruyuki ‘Haru’ Arita, who is a short, overweight boy. Often ridiculed by his friends, the only thing that Haru is good at is video games.
Haru’s gaming skills attract the attention of Kuroyukihime, the school’s popular and attractive female student. After helping him fight his bullies, she introduces him to Brain Burst, a secret program that utilizes cognitive skills, basically an online tournament with real-life rewards.
The purpose of the game remains a mystery. Fans want to know if Haru ever reaches the highest in-game level and meets the creator of the game. Many other questions are still buzzing in our minds and hopefully, they will be answered in Accel World Season 2.
