Accel World takes place in 2046, in a future where FullDive virtual reality exists. The story follows Arita Haruyuki, as his life changes forever when Kuroyukihime introduces him to "Brain Burst," a program which allows the users to accelerate their brain waves to the point where time seems to stop.
Power of the Verse
Accel World, while normal humans in real life, is decently strong in the Accelerated World. The weakest Burst Linkers are in the Building level range, while the strongest Burst Linkers currently cap out at City Block level to Multi-City Block level. While it lacks in strong hax, all Burst Linkers are hillariously fast, in both real life and the Accelerated World, being FTL in combat, reaction, and sometimes movement speed.
