When Kuroyukihime nonchalantly offers to do so with Haru, everyone around her does a spit-take and Kuroyukihime later gets jealous when she hears that Chiyuri received Brain Burst from Haru via a short cord that she herself used with him.
Kuroyukihime does not appreciate the closeness that Haruyuki and Chiyuri share. Not that Haruyuki could understand that until someone flat out told him she was jealous. Even then he was confused and he literally looked up the word. Haruyuki and Chiyuri's relationship is a sore point with Taku as well. In a variation, it's also indicated that he believes that if he doesn't go out with Chiyuri, she'll spend the rest of her life taking care of Haru.
Chiyuri is jealous that Kuroyukihime and Haruyuki had a direct connection, and that Kuroyukihime made more progress in helping Haru soon after they met than Chiyuri did in months. After Kuroyukihime lost her connection cable which she used to connect with Haruyuki, she bought the shortest one she could find. Supposedly because she didn't have money for a longer one, but it's very probable that she did so because she was jealous about Haruyuki connecting with Chiyuri through an even shorter cable.

Noumi, is a member of the Acceleration Research Society, who are implied to be the main antagonists of the series, but Noumi seems to be fairly low-ranking. He does, however, prove to be a thoroughly unpleasant Smug Snake who blackmails Haru into gathering points for him and having Haru's friend Chiyu become his tag partner unaware that Chiyu is planning on betraying him and returning Haru's wings.
He does have a Freudian Excuse although since the same goes for most Burst Linkers, it doesn't say much - Seiji's older brother bullied him, and forced him to give points to Yuichi like Yuichi does with his victimsuntil Seiji unlocked his ability and brutally erased his brother from Brain Burst - but given that Seiji took sadistic pleasure in doing so, it doesn't inspire much sympathy.
The closest Haru, who was bullied himself gets to sympathizing with Noumi is saying that they might have been friends if Noumi had approached him and his companions as another Burst Linker. Araya is also shown to be a despicable character, which is especially driven home when he not only harasses Haru and steals his lunch money, but also when he tries to kill both Kuroyukihime and Haru in retaliation for getting him expelled and arrested.
Obsession and repressed feelings in Accel World
Cyan Pile starts out as a bounty hunter seeking Kuroyukihime's head for the points bounty, but then becomes the first person besides Haru to join Kuroyukihime in the revived Nega Nebulus. In the anime finale, Haruyuki and Chiyuri have a big one when Noumi's wings unexpectedly disappear and Silver Crow unexpectedly starts to float without the Gale Thruster being on.
What actually happened is that Chiyu's healing ability actually rewinds time and she not only managed to level it up enough to undo Dusk Taker's stealing of Silver Crow's wings but waited until the opportune moment in the battle where both combatants are in the air before backstabbing Noumi, sending him plummeting down like a rock and enabling Haru to utterly obliterate the now helpless Dusk Taker with a single attack. In the fight Haruyuki vs Cyan Pile after Haruyuki loses An Arm and a Leg he crawls over to Kuroyukihime's bed where she is fighting for her life after her Diving Saveand he won't back down which helps him unlock more of his power.
Haruyuki hates himself and this causes much confusion and problems because of how this messes up his relationships. Huge Guy, Tiny Girl: Kuroyukihime is far from free as her butterfly avatar may suggest, she is in fact chained to the game, constantly pushing forward into the darkness to discover what lies on the other side.
This motif has been used specifically in the ending sequences, with Kuroyukihime literally chained up, unable to move while her butterfly avatar disappears with Haruyuki in her arms. In this respect the game has consumed her, and the draw of the virtual world has in many respects overridden the life she currently lives, taking over every waking hour and her fear is that the same will happen to Haruyuki, and worse, she will be the person responsible.
There is a sense of helplessness about her character, partly shown through her desperate attempts to conceal certain horrible truths about what she has done from Haruyuki.
In many respects Kuroyukihime has become a prisoner of the Accel World, constantly pushing towards achieving her goals or die trying. Her fear therefore is that such a goal will break up her relationship with Haruyuki, and that his goal of supporting her will utterly consume and destroy him as well.
The Accel World and the relationship that Kuroyukihime and Haruyuki share within it greatly affect how they interact in reality as well. While in the Accel World Haruyuki is this beautifully sleek silver avatar with the rare flying ability, an unheard of fighter who is unique and special. However in the real world he is a short and chubby middle schooler who was constantly bullied and has a significant inferiority complex when it comes to Kuroyukihime and his friends, who are all beautiful or spectacular in what they do.
By making his character so very different from everyone else in the series this juxtaposition between sleek, brilliant and unique as opposed to short and chubby becomes even more marked. His normal inferiority complex and attitudes become even more powerful in the real world, with Haruyuki constantly worrying about what others would think if they saw him with Kuroyukihime. He cannot accept that someone as beautiful and strong as Kuroyukihime loves him, and thus seems to feel that in order to justify her love he has to become as strong, and perhaps as merciless as she once was.
Furthermore, in recent episodes when we see Haruyuki apparently lose his flying ability for good, he automatically believes that this now makes him useless and less than the dirt of the floor. The amount of faith that he has placed upon his Silver Crow avatar is ultimately one of his weaknesses, since without this power and uniqueness he believes that his existence means absolutely nothing.
For her part, Kuroyukihime seems to want to get close to Haruyuki, using every opportunity to use a direct link and eat lunch together. And yet, despite being so close there is also a significant distance between them.
This gap is in part artificially created by both characters using terms such as parent and child, legionmaster and her subordinate that are used to skirt around the issue of their relationship.
The Accel World constantly invades their personal space, and even during a lunch break when they are using a short and intimate cable to talk we consistently have conversations regarding the status of the Accel World and their legion within it.
They are handy tags used to denote a place and a rank, leaving out the idea of any other sort of relationship or feelings. They are therefore used to skirt around the issue, deliberately avoiding the questions that they must answer, but wish to ignore. We have seen Kuroyukihime declare her love with Haruyuki and even save him from an oncoming car almost at the cost of her life, but she also sometimes appears incapable of truly expressing her emotions.
She loves Haruyuki, and yet the Accel World takes up such a significant place within her heart and mind that she cannot move away from it and focus on Haruyuki.
They are both guilty of putting barriers in the way of their relationship, and yet it appears that Kuroyukihime is the one who ultimately seems to stay out of reach. She is clearly a little awkward around him, although this is perhaps in part due to her having no experience with being in love. Within the Accel World and her life before meeting Haruyuki we see a character he is cold, calm and collected, capable of rationalising everything, and consumed by the desire to learn all the hidden truths about the world.
When she interacts with Haruyuki, we see a completely different character, one that gets jealous easily, is thrown off by the simplest of things, and is almost incapable of actually asking if he wants anything from her school trip. She is almost the classic innocent school girl, well, perhaps a little more extreme in her inability to talk about normal things due to the all-consuming nature of her relationship with the Accel World.
We therefore have characters that despite their intimacy are also utterly controlled by what on the face of it is a simple fighting game. Kuroyukihime has only ever had the Accel World, and despite her beautiful appearance seems to be socially inept when it comes to Haruyuki, even though she does flirt with him on a regular basis.
But, because of her fascinating and addiction to Accel World there is little else for her to talk to Haruyuki about. For his part Haruyuki perhaps views the Accel World as a way of getting closer to her, and finding out what she is like. Furthermore it is the only way he can realistically see himself standing next to her and helping her, since in the real world he considers himself to be incompetent and perhaps ugly. Furthermore we know almost nothing about Kuroyukihime, she is a mystery and an enigma.
