Accel World 15
Demonic Command; Nomi’s Persona
Each dual avatar represents the users trauma but their finisher moves (I presume) represents each Burst Linkers’ persona. In Nomi’s case, the ability to steal other peoples finisher moves is the same as stripping said users of their freedom and right to be human. He’s already got a collar around Haru by rendering him useless in battle; destroying his moral and sanity. This also applies to Chiyu considering she’s no longer considered a ‘human’ but Nomi’s ‘pet’. The bully’s sly and controlling nature manifested the Demonic Command along with his dual avatar when he obtained Brain Burst. I would presume that from then on, he had cheated and bullied his way through life in order to obtain his desires. Yeah… I seriously can’t wait to see his crying face (Kuroyukihime! Hurry and come back already and beat the crap out of this guy!).
Awesome Bromance is Awesome
Well obviously, the bromance between Haru and Taku this episode wasn’t anything positive. In fact, when Haru got hostile against Taku, I seriously begun to hate his guts. It felt like we went back to square one where Haru was a whimp who had no balls. Like come on, I don’t care if you’ve lost your ability to fight at your best, you don’t just give up on life and hurts those close to you. I figured Haru would’ve grown up by now after facing against Chrome Disaster and all. Looks like I’m mistaken (well it doesn’t matter cause he’ll get his resolve back next episode from the assistance of Sky Laker).
In a way it’s ironic how I’ve recently made fun of the Taku/Haru/Chiyu love triangle and now in episode 15, Haru and Taku ended up arguing over taking each others girls (I actually didn’t know Taku and Chiyu broke up). Jokes aside, that was (1) mean of Haru to do and (2) awesome of Taku for punching Haru in the face. He deserved it badly don’t you all agree? Well even so, I don’t like seeing friendship bonds broken so I do hope the bromance between Taku and Haru is fixed as soon as possible so then they can both take on Nomi (which they should’ve done in the first place so we can fricken move on with the main story!?).
Rating: I’ve decided to give this episode 5 out of 10. I will say it again… I hate Haru for what he has turned out to be. I seriously just want to tell him to get back his balls because the lead up to this episode, I liked how he had changed from the whimp he was into a person who was able to stand up against Chrome Disaster but now… all of that is gone as if the lessons he’d learnt in the past was for nothing and I seriously hate that. Why must you listen to Nomi anyways? If Haru actually decided to use his brain for once, he’d realize how easy it’d be to take down Nomi with Taku’s help but instead, he had to get all hostile towards Taku. Like I said earlier, he deserved that punch and hopefully Sky Laker puts him through some good mental discipline. Nomi is still the bastard he is and all we got this episode was a depressed Haru. It was irritatingly difficult to watch.
