New Starburst review. The second half of anime series Accel World (scroll down for the first). Compared to how good the first half was, it was distinctly unimpressive.
You’d have thought that part two of Accel World would carry on in the same direction that part one left off, with Kuroyukihime and her allies battling for increasing dominance of the Accelerated World and their progress to supremacy revealing more about the multi-faceted dreamscape along the way. Sadly, we get nothing of the sort, and are instead subjected to a laborious and overextended story driven by that most rancid of stale plot devices: blackmail. Read the rest here.
