You likely already know by now that the Accel World anime has been licensed by Viz Media in North America, but it seems that they didn’t have the “master license” which means that they were limited to only a few options with the series outside of streaming. However with today’s announcement Viz now has complete control of the property in North America.

At the time of announcement Viz did not go into detail as to what their exact plans were for the anime series at the moment but now that they own the “master license” they can not only release the series on Blu-ray and DVD but even have it broadcast on television if they so wish.

As a big fan of anime and games I'll be quick to cover anything that happens to be of interest.
  • I wish an anime like Accel World can go on Toonami, but it’s so unrecognized in the shadow of Sword Art Online that I doubt it.

    But I wish Accel World get some love on Neon Alley and the future DVD/blu-Ray releaes.
