Usually i’m not into school life type of anime where the protagonist meets his lover by bumping into her at the corner of the hall, but this anime is very different from the usual. The story revolves around Haruyuki “Haru” Arita is a short, overweight boy who is frequently bullied by delinquents at the Umesato Junior High School. Using his Neuro Linker to escape the torment of real life, he logs onto the school’s Local Network cyberspace where he always plays virtual squash alone, and his innate video game skills bring him to the attention of Kuroyukihime that literally mean “Black Snow Princess”, the school’s popular, highly intellectual and attractive female Student Council Vice-President. Kuroyukihime introduces Haruyuki to Brain Burst, a secret program that is able to accelerate the human cognitive process to the point at which time appears to stop. Haruyuki soon learns that Brain Burst is more than just a program, but an Augmented Reality Massively Multiplayer Online Fighting Game where people fight each other in fierce duels in order to obtain Burst Points which can be spent for acceleration abilities in the real world. Kuroyukihime is one of the six kings of pure color where he beheaded the Red king and broke the truce between the kings, With every challenge they face in the Accelerated World, Haru and Kuroyukihime, under their aliases “Silver Crow” and “Black Lotus”, gather trusted allies, confront treacherous enemies and their bond grows stronger while working to attain their ultimate objective: to reach the highest in-game level and meet the game’s creator, who will reveal why the game was created and the true purpose of it.
