Accel World is a light novel series authored by Reki Kawahara and illustrated by HiMA. The novel is published by ASCII Media Works under their Dengeki Bunko Imprint and currently has 18 volumes released. The first volume was released in February 2009. Accel World previously had another TV anime series based on the light novels which ran for 24 episodes and had 2 OVAs.
Accel World: Infinite Burst is the newest entry in the Accel World anime project. Unlike the previous anime this one will have a new original story by Reki Kawahara and new characters not seen in the light novel. Though not following the light novels, it’s nice to see that they’re bringing Reki Kawahara back to pen the story. It’ll be interesting to see how this original story pans out.
