Out of many of the newer anime from the last few seasons, I think To Aru Majutsu no Index is one of the best. I’ve always had a soft spot when it comes to magic and science mixed together. That alone made Index worth checking out for many.
Although the pacing of the story could use some work, overall the show was great. It could have used more scenes with Index explaining things like she did during the first arc, but otherwise it has a pretty good of balance between telling the story, giving each character enough screentime and great action scenes.
The ending was quite sudden (again, the pacing sucks) and even after Tsuchimikado explained it, I still didn’t get what the Imaginary Numbers Sector or whatever it’s called actually is. Not to mention it seems that the one controlling Academy City, the upside down guy in a giant tube, was a magician called Aleister Crowley.
Guess that means we’ll just have to wait for the new season to come out, which doesn’t look like it will be anytime soon. Most likely To Aru Kagaku no Railgun will be released first – not that I’m complaining. Misaka is such a brilliant character and she just doesn’t get enough screen time 😀
I mean, who would refuse more of this!
