Series Summary from AniDB/ANN:
One autumn day in 2046, Haruyuki has an encounter with Kuroyuki-hime, the prettiest girl in his school. For the middle school boy who is often bullied, the meeting changes his life. Through a mysterious piece of software she gave him, Haruyuki learns about the existence of the virtual Accel World. It was after that fateful encounter that Haruyuki of the lowest school caste becomes Burst Linker, a courageous knight defending a princess.
Kenn's Comment: I'll be honest. I know nothing about this series. If I could get Zelos to talk about it, I would throw this at him like a dart. He knows a heck of a lot more about this one than I do (as well with it's related series next summer, SAO). He's got work and ToG:F on his hands and probably won't do this, so that's why I'm doing it. It's an adaptation of the novel series, which also has a manga adaptation and a spin off series.

Animated by Sunrise more or less guarantees that it'll look spectacular. The cast is pretty impressive too. I'm sure once people get past the shallow 'the main character is ugly' phase, they'll enjoy the ride.
