In 2046, many aspects of life are carried out on a virtual network. No matter how advanced the time becomes, however, bullying never disappears. Haruyuki is one of the bullied students. However, one day he is contacted by Kuroyukihime, the most famous person in the school. “Wouldn’t you like to ‘accelerate’ and go further ahead, boy?” Haruyuki is introduced to the “Accel World” and decides to fight as Kuroyukihime’s knight.
The 48th volume of Kadokawa’s Dengeki Bunko Magazine is revealing on Wednesday that the Accel World: Infinite Burst anime will be a film opening in Tokyo’s Shinjuku Piccadilly and 23 other theaters in Japan on July 23.

Accel World has been one of the old anime that I’ve watched. The reason I watched it because I’ve read some reviews that it’s similar to Sword Art Online. With its genre of Action, Sci-Fi, Game, and also a bit of Romance, you can say that it’s really similar to Sword Art Online. The difference is the story, but they have similarity for the device or technology they use. NerveGear for Sword Art Online; Neuro Linker for Accel World.
That said, I’m glad that the movie will be premiering soon. I think I remember that I saw a blog post on Matthew’s Blog: Matt-in-the-Hatt that Accel World is going to have a movie. I nearly forgot that it’s going to have a movie, so I haven’t read news about it up until now. So, it will premiere on July 23 (Japan). Luckily, our exams will start on July 19 and will end on July 21. So, most likely I’ll be able to watch this movie when it comes out.
