After years of waiting, we will finally have a new Accel World anime, and it will be called Accel World: Infinite Burst. This new AW anime was announced during a stage event during the Dengeki Bunko Autumn Festival 2015, which also featured an announcement video for the new anime.

Just like the original TV anime, Accel World: Infinite Burst will be directed by Masakazu Obara, and it will be animated over at Sunrise. The video also confirms that the four main cast members will be reprising their roles from the TV anime, and they are:

  • Kuroyukihime: Sachika Misawa
  • Haruyuki: Yuuki Kaji
  • Chiyuri: Aki Toyosaki
  • Takumu: Shintarou Asanuma


The anime will have a completely original story with new characters, and this new story will be written by Accel World and Sword Art Online creator, Reki Kawahara. The format of this new anime, whether it will be an animated movie, a TV anime, or an OVA, has not yet been announced, which means that this may not be the second season many fans have been hoping for.
