The year is 2046. Haruyuki Arita is a young boy who finds himself on the lowest social rungs of his school. Ashamed of his miserable life, Haruyuki can only cope by indulging in virtual games. But that all changes when Kuroyukihime, the most popular girl in school, introduces him to a mysterious program called Brain Burst and a virtual reality called the Accel World.
My Opinion: Really enjoyed the idea of creating a LitRPG world using both augmented reality and virtual reality and how it’s use can impact real life. The main character is a bit whinny and self-deprecating sometimes but that only makes his acts of heroism more outstanding. Love the battles and sci-fi elements.
