Differences in AdaptationEdit

  • The anime didn't adapt the parts where Kakine talks with Kinuhata about the Dark May Project and when Kakine says that Takitsubo has the potential to be the #8 Level 5.[3]
  • In the novel, when Hamazura stabbed Mugino with the Body Crystal case, some of it got into her body and when she tried to use her ability, it went out of control, blowing up her arm.[3] This scene did not happen in the anime.
  • Hamazura explains that Mugino's weakness is that she needs a certain amount of time to aim, otherwise she would be caught in her own attack, because her ability is too strong[4]. He also says that her complex of superiority towards a Level 0 like him let her make fatal mistakes, like not using her power to kill him instantly[5].
  • In the novel, Accelerator attacked Kakine with four tornadoes in the middle of the fight and Kakine blew them apart,[6] while in the anime Accelerator attacked him with only two tornadoes and Kakine dodged them.
  • Kakine's awakening wasn't explicitly shown in this episode as well as his trust in this new power which, according to what he felt at this moment, could beat anyone in the world[6].

Animation TriviaEdit

  • The opening is removed for this episode.
  • In the scene where Mugino chases after Shiage, after the camera closes-up on Mugino's face, her walking animation is her cel simply being moved and down.
  • Despite her eye being bloodied by Shiage attacking it with the Body Crystal case, there are scenes during Mugino and Shiage's fight that have her opening her eyes and corneas still being white.
  • The can Accelerator throws in the recycling bin is CGI.
  • The visuals for Accelerator's wind-based attack from the previous season have been changed to a black attack with a purple aura or outline.
  • The visuals for the ending are removed, instead the credits and song play during the episode's epilogue.
