why is this person a good guy... or even accepted?

he did kill 1000s of clones and other ppl that got in the way

that makes him a massmurderer

since the clones are not just lifeless robots
and the fact that he did kill others and tried to kill the goodguy team

is he forgiven all his crimes just bcoz he had a change of heart and saved the loliclone?

should we forgive him since he have lived a hard life?

i dont get it
its like the wolfboy in inuyasha...evil massmurderer that all of a sudden wants to play with Kagome
that makes him a goodguy

Because he's the cocky white-haired teenage boy archetype that always seems to build up a fanbase somehow. Therefore the author decided to make him a good guy.

I'm a little late. Ah haha...

The series explains that Accelerator was essentially forced into participating in the experiment. The one clone that gives saves brings up the fact that he always would talk to the clones before fighting them, which was unnecessary. And it's been awhile, but someone suggests that he was doing it because he wanted one of them to ask him to stop. He's have stopped if the clones had asked him to stop.

Essentially he becomes a good guy because he had been forced into the experiment by the scientists, and he makes the decision to correct his wrongs by not allowing any more of the Sisters to get killed.

Not sure if that makes him a good guy in your eyes, but it certainly redeems his character a little.

Wait... When did Accelerator become "one of the good guys"? As far as I remember he was still a sadistic jerk with a god complex who made mincemeat out of special ops (quite literally) even without his powers. He may get better with ten (or so) volumes of character development, but right now he's more of a Villainous Protagonist than anything else.
...You could say that his willingness to plunge himself into darkness to save Last Order is a "good" character trait, though. "Even if I destroy myself. Even if that kid comes to hate me. I will kill anyone and everyone to save her." Something along those lines.

Accelerator is an antihero who's current interests(Protecting Last Order at any cost, not killing anymore SISTERS(Even if he...nevermind.)) just happen to lie with what people would call good, for now. I'm pretty sure he would LIKE to be a good guy, but he just can't at this point.

Well, he definitely has social problems due to the fact that he couldn't make friends because of his ability and always being attacked. What other place does he have if he doesn't follow what the scientists say? Also, since he has no other reason to live than increase his power, he willingly took the test to become a level 6. However, because Last Order approached him and never gave up, he considered her a friend, and wanted to protect her.

And yes, Accelerator is amazing~ He is my boyfriend~~~ XDDD
