Accelerator and Vent, the craziest characters!
After last week’s episode I can only hope they keep the flow with this arc! So far things are getting really exciting again thanks to Accelerator. I spent some time reading chapter thirteen of the light novel and till now they are keeping true to that even down to the subtitles, hahah.
Plot this week has Touma paired up with Last Order as he “fights” Vent, while Accelerator makes his escape from Amata and gets a bit of revenge against the Hounds. He lures them into a railway factory, where he picks them off one at a time. Tsuchimikado is also up to his own investigation of Academy City and Vent’s master plans.
Accelerator-“Hey… I like this song; don’t screw with the radio!”
Amata is just sad that Accelerator didn’t say bye.
Vent laughs at your sucky aim there, Amata
Accelerator pulls off an amazing move and slings himself into a nearby van and kidnaps one of the soldiers, well more like shoves a pipe into his back and demands him to drive. Accelerator also grabs Index as they drive past, saving her from Amata. And yes, they want Last Order for their evil plans not Index; then again who would want Index anyway?! She would eat everything.
Accelerator-“….OH FFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFF, WHY HER?!”
While Accelerator plays hero to Index, Touma is left with Last Order and the two of them are suddenly attacked by more members of Hound dog’s cleanup crew. The two of them escape into a nearby restaurant for cover until Vent arrives and tears up the place! And damn, she does have a very unique voice, not as bad as some other characters but still. Of course she knows all of Touma’s little tricks for his Imagine Breaker, until she wears herself out and is forced to run away.
Last Order has now fused with Touma.
Well, at least it can’t get any worse….
Vent demands to play!
Not the most exciting battle ever, but still fun listening to Vent ramble on.
Accelerator is having his own kind of fun after he dumps off Index, leaving her with the frog doctor aka Heaven Canceller and the two of them share a conversation about Last Order and the danger she is in. ‘Course Accelerator has his own things he has to deal with, mostly Amata and his dumb hounds that fall for a trap getting them owned! Strange seeing Accelerator use guns this time around, but he really has no choice.
Soldier-“Alright, we can take one guy right?!”
WRONG! Accelerator loves to play extreme call of duty!
Tsuchimikado’s expression is great! He’s ready to bust that ghost.
Wanted for being too BAMF for this anime series.
While making his escape from the rail factory, a member of Anti-Skill spots Accelerator and witnesses his last attack and gives the order of him being a prime murder suspect. Episode ends with Tsuchimikado spotting some strange ghost! Not sure what that thing was but Vent was having a hard time near the end.
DJ Accelerator! Dropping some mad beats!
“I wonder what this person had for dinner…”
Uiharu-“Huh, hidden camera in Mikoto’s shower?!” Kuroko-“OH, FFFFFFFFFFF!”
Index, what are you doing between Accelerators legs??! DO NOT WANT!
Such great progression so far! Well, mostly on the action front and the tiny bit of story thrown in. The best parts of the first half for me mostly involved Accelerator, he finally gets to be his over the top badass we all have grown to cheer for. At least I have grown to like his character improvements over the first season. Of course, this isn’t his series so we have to include Index somewhere, still I wish, she would get a clue and do something! Sigh writers of Index…
Vent versus Touma wasn’t that exciting as the opening shows us; then again she didn’t really stick around to continue the fight. I have a feeling that light ghost is somehow connected to her, so hopefully we get to see Tsuchimikado do some magic against it. I am waiting for Mikoto to do something too! Hopefully she bumps into a few Anti-Skills next week!
Not much else to say, I did enjoy that very cool night vision mode during Accelerator’s game of tag, hahaha such an epic and bloody scene. So happy to see Accelerator going all out! Then again those soldiers are weak so he is toying with them anyway. Hope everyone else is enjoying this arc as much as me, sadly I don’t think we will get a true ending to this series until they crank out another season.
Preach on Touma!
Next week seems to be more Touma and Accelerator on their own separate missions and Vent having some problems, coughing up blood. Probably swallowed one of her million piercings? And Accelerator is a wanted criminal now. More BAMF points!
