In the hypothetical case you like Raildex: Why do you like Raildex?
Lately I'm sure that the majority of fans have a concept of history: everything is shit, and yet continue following it. Why? Is it likely that what they really like in Raildex are the characters and the interaction between them. Are fans more concerned about the harem Touma or for Accelerator-Last Order relationship are that the real story?
Just magine it:
In that case, a reboot should Raildex and become a Comedy/SoL/Harem story, whithout "deep" subjects?
I like it because it's about people with superpowers, and that stuff has always appealed to me for some reason.
While there are a lot of anime series out there with people that have superhuman abilities, they just aren't done in the same way.
Basically, I like the idea of (under normal circumstances) each character having one defining power, and having to use it creatively or with care to overcome challenges.
One piece does that fantastically, but I guess I like the modern-ish setting in raildex more.
I like the setting, the world building, and most characters
>In that case, a reboot should Raildex and become a Comedy/SoL/Harem story, whithout "deep" subjects?
I just like to hear Index talk. I fell in love with Maria in Haganai and had to hear more from the VA. Ended up watching Denpa Onna and Girls und Panzer because of her. Didn't bother watching Railgun, as Index wasn't the focus anymore. Also, Touma seemed like a pretty cool guy, I wanted to see him punch more women.
I don't like it, but I want to fuck Misaka.
You need to take more English classes.
What you're describing is Indexchu pretty much. Personally I like those "deep" subjects as well as the world building Kamachi has put into the series. I especially love magic and how it comes out more scientific than science itself.
If you strip all but the comedy/SoL stuff out, characters like Acqua, Thor, Tsuchimikado and a lot of others become far less entertaining. I'd rather the novels/manga continue on with their usual course, as we still get some great comedy / SoL stuff, but the story also moves along and we get some really cool fights and interesting arcs.
Also most of the fans just consider the anime shit, since JC Staff did a terrible job and keeps cramming shitty SoL filler into Railgun.
I wouldn't mind a SoL spinoff series or something though as long as Nagai isn't allowed to write it.
>should Raildex and become a Comedy/SoL/Harem story, whithout "deep" subjects?
Not a reboot, but a spinoff could work.
Like, characters completely removed from the current story, but still in the city, some have powers, etc.
Main girls probably wouldn't be higher than level 2, but m.c. might need to be 3 or 4 to defend/keep interest of his harem. Or m.c. could be as weak as the rest and one girl (the annoying bitch one that no-one who actually watches the show likes) could be level 3 or 4.
Or just the non-canon story /a/ made where all the level 5's must live in the same house.
Has anyone here read In Memoriam on spacebattles? It'a a rewrite of Index/Railgun in an attempt to flush away its stupid. The first arc combines the Level Upper and Index arc and from the most recent chapter, things are about to get hype.
I like how the author has knowledge on physics and describes how misaka's lightning works. Touma can't really make her lightning disappear, he just makes her lose control over it and she was manually guiding the electrons towards Touma's hand at a speed where it wouldn't hurt Touma. Touma's also classified as level 1 and he doesn't have stuff like "precognition" to save his ass.
Also, no harem.
But if you disregard things like personal reality, AIM and the nature of the imagine breaker, how can you possibly work in things like Awaiss or Kazakiri?
>Touma's also classified as level 1
So the author doesn't actually know how the setting works?
Yes, I know it, sorry for that
Just started reading it, why does it say there are eight level 5s? Who was reclassified or added?
It's a rewrite. I dunno yet, but maybe the ib actually is an esper power, or maybe, like Gunha, they just slapped on a level that seemed to fit. I mean, I find it kinda stupid that every time Touma does the level exam thing he has never once mentioned his power. I know the upside down guy who's name escapes me is trying to keep it hidden, but it shouldn't be that hard for Touma to reveal it. I mean he used it in a school sporting event in front of tons of people. At this point I will admit that he hasn't done a level test since memory loss and maybe he had a reason to hide it.
He doesn't produce AIM at all because of the IB
Even other Level 0's supposedly produce AIM, even if it's weak as shit
Fuck, Now I want pizza.
What was this thread about again? Bread baking anime?
Yes it's a Shining Hearts: Shiawase no Pan thread
And Gunha's AIM field is completely out of whack, changing constantly.
If they can accept Gunha's power might mess up his aim but stil give him a level, why not Touma?
If I was a scientist and I saw something that nullified AIM, I would accept that every rule has an exception, and if the power destroys its user's AIM field then I'd just have to try and assign them a level by observing their power.
Do you know the feeling when you first think you don't like a character, then a few episodes in, you realize that you had strong feelings for them?
I like Index now because of it's interesting setting and characters, but what got me interested was... Touma.
I didn't think I'd like him, but the way the story set up his memory loss made me really worried about him. I wouldn't admit I liked him at first at the time, but the show got me to care about him a bit.
I mean, why do I like this kind of guy? He's kind of an idiot and really preachy. Sure he's selfless, kind of funny, and he was still a good person even after his memories got erased, but I thought, "that's not a good enough reason to like him right?"
Still, my favorite scenes are still with Touma. When he's being kind, gentle, brave, or heroic, it makes me feel happy.
I know /a/ doesn't really like him too much... but, to answer your question, I kind of sort of like Kamijou Touma.
Magicians doesn't have aim either and Touma has a third type of power that isn't magic or science.
There's also supposedly Aleister's hand in him being a level 0
Since he was always being used to stop shit from the magic side, being an unimportant student helped him get by
This got pretty much forgotten though as soon as the Roman Catholic Church went specifically after his head
Is that squid on the pizza?
fruit de mare pizza
Never had a seafood pizza? calamari and prawns on a pizza work great.
No, the squid is eating the Pizza.
I pretty much stopped reading after the first paragraph since I didn't like the feel of Touma, then later on I pretty much swore never to bother with it since the author bitches a lot about the setting and enjoyed the end of Railgun S, and shit talked Battle Royale, what kind of fuckwit can hate Battle Royale yet, like Nagai Space?
Need more Kuroko.
I like Raildex because I like seeing Touma in action. I know he's pretty much insane due to half of the crazy things he says/does but I always enjoy seeing him try to save other people using his warped sense of morality and justice.
I like it because of the prospect of someday getting to see casual Vento
I feel like the biggest shitstorm won't be Touma dying, Misaka winning, or anything like that, but rather the day casual Vento gets posted by Haimura.
Give up, we'll sooner see Othinus in casual clothing before Vento ever makes another appearance
I'm not sure if I'd be happy on the day that happens, I mean we'll have casual Vento, but then we'd lose this tradition
To behold the shitstorm when Kuroko wins da Tomato Bowl
Touma a shit
He will promise something else that will never see the light of day sooner or later.
Like Indexchu 3.
Kuroko is dead though?
Raildex has lots of great characters and an interesting setting. The LNs can drag on though. It's more of a thing that you read so you can enjoy it in abstract.
The plot and story arc tend to be rubbish I admit that, but the appeal is I just find the character so endearing and the setting is fascinating enough.
Having a whacky AIM field is very different from having nothing at all. They know Gunha has an abnormal brain, they know he has a personal reality, and they know has enough power/control to qualify as a level 5.
With Touma there's just no evidence that he has esper abilities. Handwaving the normal rules to declare IB an esper power anyway could just as easily be used to declare it an entirely new kind of power.
I like moral fag speeches
Index > railgun
and I like TouMAN and his speeches
Personally, I like Touma as a protagonist.
Niggas who get shit done by trying their very hardest against all odds always resonate with me.
World building is cool as well, and the power levels are entertaining.
I like watching Accelerator do vector things. That's always cool.
I read it for the science side and highschool kids doing non-highschool things.
I watch it for Kuroko's voice.
You're in the club dancing when this punk ass nigga smacks your girlfriend's ass.
What do you do?
turn 360 degrees and moonwalk away
I wake up
I like how he just punches all the uppity magic/espers without a care in the world.
>mfw he knocks the shit out of someone
>In the hypothetical case you like Raildex: Why do you like Raildex?
>In that case, a reboot should Raildex and become a Comedy/SoL/Harem story, whithout "deep" subjects?
there were deep subjects? has always been a comedy/SoL/harem with some shounen fighting thrown in for me
Lolis and face punching.
Sorry this took so long I was away.
AIM is now called IPD (Involuntary Physical Distortion). No idea how the author is going to treat Aiwass or Kazakiri but I have a feeling that IB (it isn't even called Imagine Breaker) is going to be less special so no Invisible Thing I think.
No idea if IB is actually an esper power but the effects of IB in the story can be measured and tested by scientists. I imagine IB as releasing a unique IPD field that normalizes other IPD fields (the effects of IB is only observable under the presence of IPD fields). I'll have to reread the bit about the eight level 5s.
The author would probably reduce Crowley's keikaku capacity and upping the intelligence of the scientists and general population of AC from canon. He dislikes how canon handles politics, keikaku and science.
Stupid sexy Touma.
I want to jam it into his boypussy.
You'll get him flustered anon
>Why do you like Raildex?
I only like Misaka and her gang. The rest is powerlevel bullshit.
Fanfiction is objectively shit and you should feel shit.
>It'a a rewrite of Index/Railgun in an attempt to flush away its stupid.
Human arrogance at its finest.
The irony here is that apparently this person thinks he can do better, yet rather than create his own work, he chooses to "fix" a pre-established work, thereby showing his own hypocrisy and laziness.
Wait, no, this is stupid. If Imagine Breaker is entirely a science side ability, then how the fuck does it stop magic? The only reason Imagine Breaker even works in the first place is because it's works beyond the confines of either the Magic or Science Side.
Anyone has a gif version of this?
Wait a minute the flushing away the stupid thing is said by me and many fans of the author's work.
He says that his work isn't objectively better than canon and it's what he wants it to be, not what it should be for everyone.
The idea is still there. You wouldn't create a fic like that unless you either A) legitimately believed that your idea was superior or B) it's some kinda tongue-in-cheek parody, which probably isn't the case here. Despite what he's say, it's pretty obvious that he's basically rewriting Index the way he WANTS it to be, which is, again, ironic considering that he's apparently enough of a fan to actually bother following the series.
The author is a railgun fan who likes cute girls doing cute things and hates every male character as far as I can tell. All the personalities are butchered and Saten's beauty is described in loving detail (I'm quite serious).
Basically it's a disgruntled shit who thinks Nagai is good at writing.
Also don't listen to any false humble statements. Talk with him in person for 5 minutes and he quickly reveals to be an arrogant asshole who thinks his own ideas are objectively correct and for some reason decided to use the names of Toaru and nothing else instead of writing his own story.
>because it's works beyond the confines of either the Magic or Science Side.
>muh special snowflake
Anyway, we don't know yet. I was hoping that IB would be level 2 since that would avoid the underdog cliche and it also reflects IB's effectiveness in canon while taking into account its limited range.
It's got nothing to do with special snowflakes and everything to do with the logic. In a story where your protagonist has to deal with both magic and ESP, your protagonist must be capable of dealing with both. If the protagonist is limited to only being able to deal with one half of the equation, then what's even the point of him getting involved in the other?
Tsuchimikado's a Level 0 too.
Anyone with entirely passive abilities with limited application and absolutely no real control over them are Level 0s. Imagine Breaker shows no power on its own, and thus it's just under the radar enough to be labeled as a Level 0, same as Auto-Rebirth.
Both of them are impossible to measure too.
Plus it's nerfed to not being able to deal with the heat of flame meaning he gets burned if he tries to block or negate fire. It's supposed to be logical, but since this ignores both how fire actually works (what does he think fire is?) and the perfectly fine explanation of the series, it's the author's blatant hate of Touma showing through.
Tsuchi makes AIM, Touma doesn't, as explained in NT 7. Touma can't even do the basic spoon-bending and card-reading tricks that all other Espers can do. It wouldn't exactly be difficult for Crowley to get people to ignore him.
It has good worldbuilding. And as far as chuuni super power anime goes, it's pretty much the best for that.
It's a shame the anime has such a tedius plot that completely wastes the universe.
I definitely agree it needs more fun and less needlessly dark drama, I wouldn't say slice of life, it still needs a plot. It's just that plot doesn't need to be about genocide and the mentally ill attacking people.
It's a massive school city of the future and all anyone ever ends up doing is getting mugged or trying to stop some kind of criminal master mind. Yeah, so much for all that science and security. As usual the actual police only have guns and are completely useless compared to a bunch of schoolchildren who have to save the world. Is there some kind of bond villain school somewhere within the city pumping these inexplicably evil people out endlessly?
If you set your series in a school you better have a good reason for it, and not just because 'all anime is set in schools'
Incidentally, Imagine Breaker ISN'T an Esper ability to begin with, so his label as a Level 0 is actually entirely correct.
Aleister's reasoning is technically logical. Touma's not an Esper. He's just a "normal" person with an unusual ability.
Index was originally supposed to be a story about magic. Academy City was created as the "epicenter of science" in order to create a greater mismatch between the protagonist, a resident of the Science Side, and magic. Academy City initially just existed as a plot device.
Apparently the assholes are mostly orphans that got experimented on by AC. Plus when you read the prologue to 19 it's not hard to see how they get started.
The police aren't completely useless. They stopped that one spiky haired asshole from drilling a hole in a cute blonde girl's head.
Well basically Kamachi said that the reader has no way of knowing how strong a magical attack is if there isn't a scientific weapon to compare it to. That's just how he originally came up with AC though.
Fuck that guy, who points a goddamn drill at a sweet innocent loli like that?
Touma is an esper, because he has his brain messed with by AC. But they can't tell what level he is because of IB. He still wouldn't be able to cast magic without the problems (besides the obvious IB), and he says this in NT2.
And Aleister hiding Touma's ability is entirely logical. People need to remember that Aleister somehow made the rumors regarding Touma beating Accelerator dissapear in just a few days, despite the fact that it was widespread and people were already chasing down Touma to fight him. The Kihara's and some of the Board of Directors know about him and his ability (although they think he's a gemstone).
Touma thinks he can't cast magic, we don't know. This series isn't exactly full of reliable narrators, character's exposition and theories are proven completely wrong as often as right.
Level 0s without any noticeable powers aren't really considered Espers. No one ever refers to Hamazura or Saten as Espers. Touma's technically in that group because Imagine Breaker isn't an Esper power.
Just being able to produce an AIM isn't really enough to label someone as an ability user (能力者).
A few things I would say about raildex
The plot is batshit insane.
The characters are mostly likable and I care about what happens to them.
The climax of every arc almost never disappoints me. No matter how dumb the idea of Touma solving everything by punching a guy in the face at the end is, I look forward to it every time because the author builds everything up towards that point.
Somehow the fanservice and the insanity of all the girls who crave Touma's dick don't disrupt the story's tension.
Oh and the world-building is pretty cool.
We even know Saten's power, she just can't use it normally because she's a level 0
They do have abilities, they're just so weak you need special equipment just to tell they're there.
Doesn't matter. If she can't use her power then she doesn't have one. Simple as that.
She's enough of an esper that if she tried to use magic she'd blow up
I enjoy Touma and his whack adventures.
Again, that really doesn't matter here.
This is a fact: Level 0s who can't use any ability like Hamazura and Saten are never called Espers, not once in the entire series.
The Japanese term for Esper (能力者) literally translates to "Ability User". As in "someone who uses a (supernatural) ability". Neither Saten nor Hamazura fit that description.
Aleister even says outright that Touma isn't officially considered to be an Esper, and no one from the Science Side ever refers to him as such.
Well, Mikoto does I think, but that's just Mikoto.
Railgun-anime-only shithead here, I like seeing cute girls doing action things.
Expand your horizons anon.
Not even a Railgun-anime-only fan could think that Saten beating up mechs with a baseball bat is reasonable.
You are out of luck.
Can you read moon?
How does Motoharu refer to himself as when he expounds to Touma in the Angel Fall arc?
It's easier to just try something imo. If you like it great, if you don't stop reading. Course sometimes this leads to reading shit, but sometimes you find you like something you thought you'd hate. Different people have different tastes anyways.
So we have a bunch of Level 0s, 4s and 5s.
How come we don't have many Level 1s, 2s or 3s? I'm seeing some bias here.
Pretty much all the sisters are level 3
They're not interesting enough using their powers
They're not interesting enough as a "powerless" character
Uiharu is a level 1 but her power is hardly ever a thing because her thing is hacking, for example.
Reminder that Touma has been with Othinus longer than any other girl.
I really like Touma
Reminder that Othinus killed touma 10031 times.
You know what I think would be kind of neat?
If there were, like, a mini-series about a couple of completely average Level 2s and stuff. Just a tongue-in-cheek SOL where they're completely unimportant ordinary students.
So you have these Level 2s doing ordinary student things like homework or vidya.
And then MEANWHILE there's a cut to Mikoto desperately fighting Item.
And then you're back to the Level 2s again and they're kinda just talking about random nonsense.
Cut to Touma desperately fighting Accelerator.
And then the Level 2s are all "...Man, I'm bored."
reminder that touma would fight everyone to save othinus
Not even once, she just left him almost dead for 10031 dies restarting at the last moment.
She wanted to make him kill himself, if she actually kills him, the IB will fly somewhere else.
Is Othinus magic Accelerator?
I want to see Touma picking one girl and pursue her, drop all the other officially.
NT10 boss rush is gonna be so good.
I would really dig a SoL about low ter espers in Academy City, with just comedy, school problems, romance and stuff.
With subtle scenes here and there hinting at the darkness of AC, that only people watching/reading the main plot will get.
And Touma actually became a slightly better fighter every time he was almost killed.
Kamachi just did a training arc and put another girl in Touman's harem.
Nah, Touma still has to save Aleister. Aleister's gonna be the last member of his harem.
I catch up with the volumes once a year. Doesn't take much effort and I can do it when I am really bored. I like Railgun better because Touma is boring. That arch with Tsuchimikado recently was pretty great and shows just how much better Index would be with a different protagonist.
>He doesn't love the TouMan
His motive just sucks. To begin with he rarely has one. He just fights the bad guys because they're bad. The sisters arch was good precisely because he actually had a motive but normally he does not.
Kongou's 2 friends (Wannai and Awatsuki), as well as the clones and Mii are all leve 3. Wannai and Awatsuki had a pretty great battle with lardass in the Railgun Daihaseisai arc.
Maria is the only level 2 worth mentioning, and she kicked some serious ass.
Thought for sure one of them was level 4
I hope it doesn't turn into a bloodbath. After defeating his opponents, Touma allows Othinus to blow up the bodies.
Please don't involve Sasha.
When can we expect NT9 to be translated?
First JS needs the raws
Then give him a month or two, though he releases little by little
>He just fights the bad guys because they're bad.
There are no bad guys in Raildex. They only happen to be on the other side of the conflict than Touma. When their goals change, so do their relationship with Touma.
Also Touma does not fight them because he thinks they are the bad guys. He doesn't give a fuck about such things like good and evil, he just protects those, who need help. Several times he tried to save someone, who just wanted to kill him and a lot of other people a moment ago.
>They will never be this cute in Railgun
But yeah, both are level 3. Tokiwadai is made up of mostly level 3 and some 4 espers, as well as Misaki and Mikoto.
About a month if js06 has the scans right now. We might get a weird situation where it takes forever to get scanned, like the last HO novel.
>He just fights the bad guys because they're bad
B-But he's declaring war against the whole world to protect a girl who was trying to destroy the universe
Why don't you buy and mail js06 a copy?
>Why do you like Raildex
MikoKuro. I don't care what people think and that it'll never happen.
Well, she was technically just trying to re-become a god, and remake the universe so that magic side would be ahead of the science side.
>There are no bad guys in Raildex.
How many people have tried to blow up Academy city at this point? You don't consider this bad?
i don't care what the alternative is the fairy spell suddenly working is stupid
Well considering Academy City is run by crazy people who have no problem doing horrible experiments on children and orphans, I can kind of see where they are coming from.
And really, it's just politics and shit. Touma doesn't care for any of that though, if someone is suffering in front of him he's going to try and stop it, because that's just who he is.
Only a few, really. Biagio is definitely a villain and is in English jail because of that
The girl from Road to Endymion is probably living her life correctly right now
Vento's only real purpose was Touma, not AC
Fianma wanted to restore the world, got his life corrected
And now Othinus is going to have her life corrected as well
I think the prime example about Touma wanting to get involved is Volume 7.
Styil literally tells him to go home and that he can do it by himself now, Touma is going home, stops midway and goes back to punch a nun.
And then punch the same nun 15 minutes later, of course.
Not his fault she decided to get up
>5 people tried to blow up his city
>only a few really
Good things about Raildex:
-Likeable characters, though not particularly well-developed
-Tons of lolis
-Cool superpower use
Bad thing about Raildex:
-Goddawful dialogue and character motivations
-HORRIBLE fanservice and ecchi scenes
-Inconsistent writing quality
-Shounen tropes rehashed 101 everywhere
Only 2 of them were evil, though.
Well they never succeeded, so they're at a better position than Avignon and random parts of Russia
Also only two of those were targeting AC itself, two others were trying to save/change the entire world
It's from the 4koma
Vento didn't try to blow up the city. she just incapacitated most of the city and trord to kill Touma, Fiamma didn't try to blow it up either, though he did try to break a continent, so yeah
Othinus didn't tru to bomb the place either, though she did change reality
Three of them were from the same organization, and one of them was trying to blow up the world and kill herself.
Plus Baggage City, which was quite dickish.
Vento had an accompliace who tried to impale all the unconcious people in the city though. Tsuchi stopped him.
>Vento didn't try to blow up the city.
Wasn't she trying to impale everyone? Is that really any better?
Yes, Aleister can replace literally everyone there.
How much damage was there in the true Baggage City?
What with all the reality bending shit going on there I was never able to tell if Bacteria-from-Mars-tan safely escaped or not
We know most of the soldiers and the heads of the state were killed. The reality warping just kind of messed up the order of locations for the most part.
I'm gonna be uncomfortable with Othinus as an ally, just as I was with Vento.
Vento killed three Directors.
Othinus is responsible for Baggage City, which had quite a few deaths that Touma was too late to intervene in.
I wouldn't consider Vento too much of an ally to begin with
She was devoted to the Roman Catholic Church and just wanted to stop Fianma
And well, Umidori, all of ITEM, Accelerator, Tsuchimikado, Birdway and a fuckton of other allies have killed a lot of people too
The directors are all assholes except for Oyafune, aren't they?
Why are the Index series character songs so bad
Three quarters of them aren't even trying to be on-character, it's just the VA singing with their usual voice
Two kinds of people in the Board: assholes, and good ones LIKE Oyafune.
That's 7 novels after Vento's appearance (Volume 12 Epilogue).
Worry not, TouMAN has corrected their lives.
I really liked both seasons of the Index anime then I tried to read the LNs, but I just can't do it. The writing/translation is so goddamn horrible. Those passages about Touma being dense always make me cringe. I guess it's impossible to write a decent harem without it sounding like a bad fanfic. And I always thought the fanfic analogy was exxagerated before reading the LNs myself, but it fits pretty well.
Touma isn't dense though.
>This may be getting repetitive, but a romantic Kamijou Touma that wanted to pursue girls’ bare skin did exist within him. However, his experiences told him this would end in a great tragedy brought on by his usual miraculous misfortune.
In Vento's later appearance, I could accept that, since her motive happened to work out in Touma's favor that time.
This is the only one I'm unsure of. Did the text mention her killing a named two-bit character?
She didn't kill anyone named I think. We just know she killed every scientist that was part of the Dark May project. And AC scientists are generally assholes anyways.
Still gay in my eyes. There are over ten thousands clones he still needs to impregnate so he needs to get started now.
>In the hypothetical case you like Raildex: Why do you like Raildex?
>Lately I'm sure that the majority of fans have a concept of history: everything is shit, and yet continue following it. Why? Is it likely that what they really like in Raildex are the characters and the interaction between them. Are fans more concerned about the harem Touma or for Accelerator-Last Order relationship are that the real story?
'raildex' is shit because the majority of the fans read the novels and they expected a proper and actual adaptation instead of a butchered slice of life-haremshit forced shonen action series.
touma's thinking is reduced to zero in the anime. same goes for fight scenes, they're much more violent in the novel than they appear on screen. important stuff was left out and the timeline was fucked with in favor of fanservice.
Considering how much she enjoys the DARKNESS, I'm pretty sure Umidori has murdered tons of dudes
I mean shit like
> Kamijou Touma exhaled heavily. After suddenly being hit in the head by a soccer ball, he had been chased around by Mikoto’s lightning attacks. In order to fulfill her job, Itsuwa had started to assemble her spear, and in order to stop her, Kamijou hugged her. But for some reason, Mikoto got angry again, so in an attempt to avoid her electric attacks, he ran around Academy City. As for the running distance, with that level of activity, nobody would worry about him having too much fat or get sick.
> But for some reason, Mikoto got angry again
Kamijou suddenly let out a ridiculous scream, scaring Itsuwa such that she couldn’t make a sound. From behind, Kamijou held Itsuwa’s neck with his wrist and quickly pulled her away from Index, silently going through a battle plan.
“(…Miss Itsuwa!! Regarding that, can you please keep it a secret from Index!?)”
“(…Acqua’s target is only me; it’s alright as long as he doesn’t target Index! So it’ll be bad if you say some unnecessary words and get Index involved in some dangerous situation, don’t you think?)”
“(…Itsuwa, do you hear me?)”
“I, I hear it!! I, I, I, I hear it clearly!!”
For some reason, Itsuwa’s face was all red as she nodded her head up and down.
> For some reason, Itsuwa’s face was all red
Volume 16 is unreadable. I have to read sentences multiple times, because of how awkwardly structured they are.
Yeah, 16's translation is shit (it wasn't translated by Js06). 17 gets better at least.
Oh, I didn't know that. Maybe I'll just stick it out.
Even js06's translations could use an editor at a fair few bits.
Only cared to watch Index. I'll probably watch Railgun too. And I'll probably read Accelerator.
I like it mainly because of Accelerator and Accelerator-related plot, Misaka is interesting too at times.
I don't give a fuck about most of the rest as long as he's not involved. The harem shit is tiring at times, but the gags are funny.
>"Damn, that was good" tier
Three stories Arc
>"Meh, not bad" tier
Deep Blood Arc
>"Why am I watching this" tier
Angel Fall Arc
Kazakiri Hyouka Arc
btw, is the movies worth watching?
Just checked some, man it doesn't fit like the setting at all.
I like the Index OPs though, lots of attitude, even if they turn less interesting from the middle of the song.
>Then give him a month or two,
You're underestimating the speed of js06.
Didn't he translate whole NT8 in like a week?
But yes, he needs raws first.
The movie is blatent idol pandering, but it has a few nice fight scenes.
The Index-tan that goes along with it is fucking hilarious though.
I think See Visions is one of my favorite OPs.
Read Railgun, it's way faster and you avoid the filler. When you see the sisters arc coming close jump to Railgun S, and when the arc is over get the hell out of there and return to the manga before you end up in Nagai space.
The movie is okay, not great. The Index-Tan of it is God-tier at least.
If you like Accel he's alot more prominent in the arcs after the anime is set. 15, 19, and WW3 in particular.
I only like Index, Railgun is mindless filler
Deep Blood is one of those that got butchered in the anime. A whole subplot involving a clone of Izzard is cut out, and it establishes Touma's character basically.
I like it because it's comfy.
The environment, the characters, the uniforms. Everything just fits together in a very pleasant way.
From some threads ago, did someone actually bothered to get an average of how many fights per volume does Touma fights?
So we can see how much books of experience he got after fighting Othinus 10031 times.
That chest is a lie.
It's godly up to the part when Touma is running to the sunset, then it's alright.
I really love the music at the start of the second OP (masterpiece I think?)
Apparently new spoilers are out, and Touma did the whole 10031 deaths thing, which was then looped infinitely or something. So yeah, not a good time.
Thanks for the recommendations. I'll check out Index-Tan and then I'll go read the manga.
I'm really starting to wonder if Touma will ever get a vacation at this point, every goddamn week there's some asshole out there trying to ruin his day, and now he's spent like a year just trying to deal with Othinus's shit
Santa better have a giant bags of of presents for him when he comes to ask for help
Railgun manga only though. The Index manga skips whole arcs and shit. The art gets better at least.
If 2ch is right, a year and half with Othinus.
Also, At least in the beggining, it's more like Touma wanting to get involved because people are not living their lives correctly.
Yeah the OPs are usually pretty good, See VisionS is great
Index manga is worth it for Innocentius and batshit insane faces.
Also it will probably be the first adaptation to go past the Vento/Kazakiri arc unless Index 3 appears and, well...
It's still in the Daihaseisai though, and given its pacing it's gonna still be behind the anime for like two years
If it's not canceled before that
I hope Touma becomes the new Rossiu in NT10.
I think some will join him.
Biribiri and Index for sure, maybe they could even go and take Itsuwa out of jail.
Thor might join him just so he can fight against the "boss rush".
Afterword apparently implies that Othinus replaces Index and the Will replaces Mikoto.
I'm now sad that this won't last until the end.
And then he backstabs them at the end because of all that sweet, sweet XP Touma has built up
You've seen Darker than Black right?
But the Will or any Sister isn't anywhere near Touma an company,
What was Othinus's end goal again?
And what's up with the captchas, did Othinus use Gungnir to remake reCaptcha to not have an OCR word in it?
There are 10 Sisters in the city, and Sargossa is in Tokyo Bay. AC is right there.
Touma's in Tokyo, AC's pretty close by, the Will can just takeover a random Misaclone if she wants to chill with him
Re-becoming a Magic God and creating a world where Aleister wasn't fucking shit around
>girls of the Kamijou faction step in to rescue Touma
>they get jelly of how he's treating Othinus
>giant free-for-all over the T begins
Apparently she's actually the real, original Odin and she gave up her power because she got tired of all the destruction she was causing. She took it back from Ollerus (who was completely wrong about everything, as is usual in Raildex, someone is always wrong), and is trying to assume her former role or something.
She want to become a god again. After a lot of loops, her mind was pretty worn down and she just gave up and was going to accept her death.
Until Touma negated whatever magic skill that was going in her direction and declared war in the world.
Welp, guess we all know who are the enemies of the boss rush then
enemies in the boss rush, rather
>Everyone thinks the Kamijou Faction will help him and GREMLIN will be the enemy of the boss rush
>GREMLIN is actually in Othinus side and the Kamijou Faction is the enemy in the boss rush
Though that wouldn't make much sense. A clone would make for a shitty replacement.
If putting all the clone's power in Mikoto can power her up, the Will can presumably put all of the clone's power in one clone and level her up a bit.
I'd read an NT10 where Touma has to run a gauntlet of parties of his pals as bosses in the order in which he met them.
>and the Will replaces Mikoto.
So he's got support from the Sisters, Accel, and possibly AC military since Crowley doesn't (as far as we know) want any of them dead.
Or preferably the reverse order.
Mangaka seems to be taking his time now that he isn't trying to catch up with the anime. Who knows, maybe we get angel fall and Izzard in flashback arcs.
>manga cancelled right at the end of the Vento arc
Wouldn't this make the perfect chance for Laura to throw nukes in AC? Assuming Touma takes Othinus there for refuge.
So wait, did NT9 end just as he said he'd now be protecting Othinus?
If so then that's one hell of a dick move, I want to see everyone's reactions to Touma's crazy
Index as an ally would be useless. She can't use magic to fight, and jamming enemy spells would be useless since the enemy has science side troops.
I'm not huge on Railgun but I like Index mainly because of Touma. The guy is a badass with a golden moral compass.
No, those really didn't happen in this universe, considering Touma's reactions to Stiyl and Kanzaki
Yeah, Index has been useless for a long time, but Kamachi can't just kill her off, as much as I'd love to see it happening, he can't.
I am a sucker for any female character that has a strong physical talent, while still being cute or attractive.
- Elsa from Disney's Frozen
- Riza Hawkeye from FMA
- Homura from PMMM
- C² from Code Geass
All of the above have some emotional vulnerability that I fantasize myself as being able to fulfill, yet are capable people that would make a worthy partner (romantic or otherwise).
Can Othinus still do her mumbo jumbo with 100% success? Touma could ask her to return her memories and make her go back with Styil to eat his wallet. Maybe his own memories too, but I don't know how he feels about it.
She can't, the fairy shit is actually affecting her and she's losing her powers
I doubt Miki would let Kamachi kill off Mikoto too. That's like complete suicide for the novel in his eyes. Haimura will be crushed as well.
If anything they will be villains for one novel before Touma convinces them to come back to him.
Remember that Birdway and Lessar are both English. Watch them that the freeloader back to England.
And then Touma swims his way to England to punch the shit out of them, nobody takes his headcrab and gets away with it
Kind of funny that it turns out the big good full of exposition had no idea what he was talking about the whole time.
Yes, but she won't just nuke it. Both because raildex England doesn't have nukes, and because she wants to exploit witch hunting laws to seize Crowley's assets for the church.
She actually isn't his. She is going back to where she belongs.
He seems to be right about IB alteast since everyone calls it a reference point
I won't until itsuwa comes back
It doesn't? Thought they were mentioned.
He never meant any harm, the poor fella
Doubt it would be of any help still.
She may be able to pull off some AIM thought-being bullshit.
Itsuwa did nothing wrong!
Nigger went from England to Russia while was going on, with his shitty English skills just because Fiamma took her, Birdway and Lessar aren't even from the same faction as Index, letting them bring her along is a dumbass's move
He's more concerned about Othinus and being the enemy of the world.
>Being controlled by the Roman Catholic Church, the EU council had adopted a treaty that specifically banned the weapons that the United Kingdom had primarily been developing. It had been as if they were saying they weren’t afraid of provoking an old-fashioned natio
>Apparently, it had started when Elizard still controlled the military. At that time, Britain’s nuclear weapons had been banned, but France’s had not. The two countries had been split into two different categories because of the difference in power between their bombs, but Britain had been prevented from later developing nuclear weapons with less power. And to top it all off, England had been required to give all their nuclear weapons to France. Officially, this had been because France would be the sole possessor of nuclear weapons within the EU and they would therefore have the technology needed to safely disassemble them, but the real reason was clear.
You'll be lucky if she just gets out of jail as a dyke.
Even if England had nukes, AC would just easily intercept them with some hax technology. And then Aleister would just launch his own nukes, stuffed with science and shit.
Itsuwa's already a dyke, as seen in Necessarius SS
AC already is said to have an absolutely perfect missile defense system. They even used it to blackmail Japan into being impotent little shits.
She's not in jail.
Duke or not she's still my favorite girl
Maybe you'd like Law of Ueki.
She would be a burden for any side she sticks to.
Maybe she could be a bit useful if the four girls fight together against Touma, but only for Mikoto.
Laura's better off just using Pendex as her weapon, Dragon's Breath is one hell of a death beam, and that's not even counting the thousands of other spells Index has in her noggin
Apparently the afterword mentions
>Othinus going dere
>Othinus and the Will replacing the heroines
Where is this coming from? Is it actually confirmed?
The 103,000 grimoires are a burden? As long as she's not on the front lines, she'd be nothing but an asset.
Yes. People would have to fight while protecting her from the various non-magical attacks.
Index is useful as fuck as an ally for any magician, she tells them the rituals and they cast it
So don't keep her on the front lines. Why is this so hard to understand?
Index's absolute knowledge of magic means that she doesn't actually have to physically be there. She can pin-point magic down to its basest components simply by hearing Touma talk to her over the phone.
She's actually in the middle of the battlefield along with everyone else, bud.
True, but it still would be risky as fuck. Aleister apparently can decapitate anyone in AC whenever he wants, not to mention his telefrag ability.
Vento, Oriana, Acqua would just die immediately after entering AC, if Aleister didn't need to develop IB for his keikaku.
I hope Othinus dies. It would fit with the theme of NT and Touma being unable to save everyone.
Plus she has lived too much already.
In that case, there's nobody better than Hyouka. Now that would be a good replacement. But it depends if Aleister wants.
This is probably what will happen next volume. I doubt Index, as annoying as she is, would betray Touma for doing what he always does. Bite his head sure, but not try to kill him. Plus this is the only way she can really fight.
Mikoto will probably just be really pissed and need to be calmed down.
Nothing is really confirmed until js06 tells us it is I guess. The nips have the novel but until someone translates the afterword for us we have no idea. It could also be Kamachi just saying something like "I wonder what would happen if I replaced the heroines?" like he sometimes does in the afterword.
Touma would probably kill himself.
He almost killed himself when she created a world where he wasn't needed anyway.
Mikoto is involved in this mess only for Touma. She doesn't care about the world's factions and politics, she's there to help him out and not lose him again. She would surely be surprised and hesitant at first, like with Lindy in Hawaii, but ultimately understanding of Touma.
Though I can also imagine her and Leivinia getting really upset, but when looking at Othinus' assets.
>Mikoto is a boss just because she's jealous
>Touma calms her down by saying that she will probably end up with bigger ones in a few years.
>Birdway is hopeful to hear the same thing
>"Sorry, I got nothing".
I just watched the movie, and who the fuck is this girl next to Mikoto? I've never seen her before.
Those are some ridiculously ugly uniforms
The thing under Uiharu.
Just a generic backup dancer.
They bring out the flatness of the chests.
Though the spoilers mention that Mikoto and the others are attacking Othinus. So being understanding of Touma after this wouldn't be that easy. I doubt even Index who has pure trust in him would immediately accept Touma in here >>100042438.
I'll fuck you up m8
She shows up in Index 2 even so you have no excuse
They are only attacking Othinus because that is what they came there to do, and when everything goes back to normal they had just met her.
They are expecting a battle, but she just falls to the ground. Then Touma runs up and starts protecting her. Birdway and Lessar will probably be pissed as all hell, because they know what Othinus really is but Mikoto really doesn't have a reason to distrust Touma on anything. It's not like Index can actually do anything on either side though so it won't really matter what she thinks.
Just in case you missed it before, I'm posting it again because I liked it so damn much.
The biggest problem for Touma right now would be Fiamma and Birdway. Both are at least Saint level and both are able to win against IB even if not without difficulty. Fiamma should be more likely to accept Touma's decision, but Leivinia will be mad as fuck.
But even if he managed to deal with magicians around him, still none of the big magic factions would allow Touma to stroll around with Othinus.
So... Touma can:
a) join GREMLIN (if it's members won't be all dead or captured), live with magical terrorists and be hunted by all Churches
b) hide in AC, if Aleister allows him to and cause the next Science vs Magic war
i watch to see touma hitting little girls in the face
About Fiamma, did he survive? I mean right after he stabbed Othinus, she got all powerful and then kills Ollerus. I doubt she would have just let him run away or something.
Although Birdway I realise has the potential to be the next mini-antagonist. She does control one of the most powerful magic cabals, and she could try to instigate the war with AC.
Odin has a bunch of kids with a bunch of different women, therefore Othinus confirmed for slu... wait a minute.
>Fuyukawa starts A Certain One-Eyed Magic God
>Norse yuri harem action with magical pregnancy and cute girls doing manly things
>/u/ goes apeshit
I can't wait until it skips ahead to Touma and /u/ complains some more. The sad part is they wouldn't even realise it was the same series until that very moment
Touma finally cleansed a god, I was tired of waiting.
I really, really hope that what that anon said about the afterword was right and we'll be getting dere Othinus soon.
My heart would beat so fast that it'd implode mid-volume.
Dere Othinus could not be a good thing if Kakine is anything to go by.
I know I'm really late to this, but whatever
As far as I can tell, there is no Awaiass or even Aliester.
No, I'm fairly certain he himself has said he's trying to get rid of the "stupid" elements.
Unfortunately his method of doing this only introduces other stupid elements.
For example he doesn't like that magicians don't use guns, so he gives Styl (named Stephen) a gun... only to induce a situation where Styl poitlessly unloads all his ammo on a robot drone blaring an alarm right before his fight with Touma.
Haha oh god. Did he age him up or shrink him too?
So, what, basically he replaced Stiyl with an OC?
>Kamijou comes home after supplementary lessons

Why can't more shonen fightan series be even 70% as creative with its fightan as the Law of Ueki was?
>Who was reclassified or added?
Probably the author's self-insert gary stu.
Is this still one of those "I watched the anime, why do people like this series?" threads or did it become the general?
A fanfic that ADDS something new to the story is nice.
A fanfic that REMOVES or REWRITE something from the original story is fucking retarded, and people who do so should just die.
>Shrimp and broccoli on a pizza
For once, Misaka > Index.
Come on guys, stop spoiling the new volume, at least wait until js06 translates it ;_;
It's not your genericshit, aka typical shounen or moecrap but different, interesting setting, new exposition of powers and science/magic/etc.
Seriously, these guys never stop do they? I'm getting tired....
How can you separate setting from story?
Do tell me plas
Yep; early thirties apparently.
He's also aged up Mikoto and co into high school girls, turned Aogami gay and Tsuchimikado bi (they are apparently in an on again off again relationship) and Maika is no longer a maid but is instead a super hacker that Uiharu admires.
The thing is, I kind of like In Memoiam. I just can't find myself to respect it as a story.
That sounds fucking disgusting, holy fuck.
Just wait until he introduces the new Level 5, mr Gahrey Stew
A setting is the envornment where the plot, the story, exists and happens inside.
Where is the story set? That is the setting.
I find it funny how the first magician fight Touma gets into ends up with the magician pulling a gun on him.
I do agree that a lot of stuff in canon is pretty stupid and he's just fixing it up for people that'd like a more serious story. There's no reason that you can't like the silly stuff in canon. Different people have different tastes.
The excuse is that Stephen sounds like a more plausible english name I think and he's aged up to fit his stature. In canon he's 14.
There's other changes like AIM being IPD (Involuntary Physical Distortion) and Level Upper being Level Plus. I think gemstones are removed too.
>Let's just get rid of everything I don't like and replace all the characters I don't like with OC stand-ins that are nothing like the characters that they're replacing
>no thelema shenanigans
>no magic/science treaty
That makes the existence of academy city and espers both irrelevant and nonsensical, unless he nerfed magic's powerlevel into the ground and came up with some other excuse to stop the various superpowers from sucking AC dry.
Get the fuck out dude, we don't like your fanfic, stop trying to "viral" it.
The Milky Holmes anime REMOVED the generic harem lead and the seriousness from the game so your argument is flawed!
>Everything must be super serious. No silliness or humor allowed.
I hate that attitude with a passion.
Milky Holmes is inherent a masterpiece, so my argument stands.
To me personally there's just a fucklot of episodes and I don't know if I can sit through them all, especially since I've heard S1 is all over the place and the plot gets convoluted as hell with Misakas everywhere.
I'm not sure how those are treated but in the new setting there's no gemstones since magic naturally came into existence through ritualised behaviour and religious belief which I think makes more sense. The esper program could be something that came out from attempts to replicate and study the phenomena.
>Misaka Freaking Mikoto is number 4
I'm guessing he changed the ranks to strength instead of research/keikaku and made Gunha the #3. Surely its not an OC.
>In the hypothetical case you like Raildex
Not so hypothetical as you think, bitch
Why are we still talking about this?
And in terms of raw power, Mugino is actually superior.
Wait, what's this about?
A shitty fanfic some guy wrote to "fix" all the things he doesn't like about Raildex by changing terms, changing powers and changing characters entirely.
A-Anon please stop, such a perfect world couldn't exist even with Othinus in full power.
If Milky Holmes is inherently good then how do you explain Futari Wa?
Nothing, don't even get interested dammit
Only if she dies in the process.
Because you touch your dog at night.
>revisionary fanfics on /a/
How we have fallen
I don't read overhauls of ongoing series out of principle. Only when the series is completed do I even bother looking for variables that have been tinkered with.
Railgun >>> Index
I like Accelerator more than Touma so I might be looking forward to Accelerator.
There's more Accelerator in Index, though
I think someone pointed out in a thread that Mugino's power is to make electrons do what they already do naturally and somehow it results in GIANT DEATH BEAMS.
There's also a hilarious paragraph about an AC scientist trying to explain the phenomena.
Magic is secret and their is no Aleister, Aiwass or Plan.
Espers are something scientifically created.
To be honest, the idea that Espers are natural while magic is man made makes much more sense to me than Magic occurs naturally while all Espers are artificial.
This isn't "we." I'm convinced this is an animeonlyfag who read the wiki and didn't like what he saw.
I assumed she could split atoms at will.
And somehow control and contain the resulting deathsplosion.
Well, there's the ZnT fanbase.
They occasionally talk about fanfics when a thread pops up.
But magic DOESN'T occur naturally.
People kind of have to learn a ton of shit in order to use magic.
Hell, telesma is actually poisonous to humans.
Oh goddammit, there goes another one of my ideas for a novel. I swear Raildex keeps taking them before I even get to write.
Mugino can strip atoms and molecules of their electrons, gather them, and use them for attacks.
There are actually both natural and artificial magicians AND espers.
Natural espers are Gemstones, obviously.
Natural magicians are Saints, gods and Fiamma of the Right because seriously does anyone actually even know what the Holy Right even is? He's clearly not a Gemstone because if he were, he'd die every time he drew knowledge from Index's grimoires.
>not liking Futari Wa
Literally worse than Kokoro-chan
Oh man I wonder how magic would exist without these gemstones. How would humans ever engage in ritualised behaviour without them?
>Muh hill of swords
Magic either would exist or it would be in a primitive stage.
The author of that fanfic? Yep, that is exactly what he is.
Enough with this fanfiction shit.
Let's talk about Othinus and her potential to be the new heroine and freeloader at Touma's house, and so we can get rid of the headcrab once and for all.
>"We call it explodium. Because that's what it does. Explode, I mean. It's, we don't know anything else about it, because we can't really study it. We don't know what combines to make it, the, um, the exact combination of atomic particles, or what chemical reactions would combine to create this, uh, the technical term is 'stuff', because we haven't exactly locked down, look it doesn't matter. The fact is it just doesn't occur naturally, and we can't really lock down how to create it artificially except, well, for the obvious. Um, we would, of course, would really like to study it except for... well, it explodes. I mentioned that before, right? It explodes. That's, um, that's all it does, and it does that in every potential situation we've tested for. It reacts with, well, with everything, we haven't managed to find anything it's neutral with at all, and of course that means it reacts to itself and, um, we uh, we're fairly sure that, based on the results of this one test where, yes, where it exploded like, like it always does.... even if it's just one atom of explodium contained in a vacuum with, um, with literally nothing at all to react with, it still reacts. Explosively. We're, um, we haven't determined, that is to say, whether it's reacting to 'nothing' or if what it's reacting to is 'the absence of something to react with', and, um, there's sort of a big argument going on currently about whether there's actually any difference between the two.
You're delusional if you think Index is going anywhere.
Casual Othinus is nigh!
>she enrolls at Touma's school
>What, um, what I'm trying to say sir is that... look, we're all aware that we're sort of under contract here to provide explanations to the public about, um, about how basically all of this works, and, well the thing is sir that we haven't got the slightest idea about how stuff turns into explodium. No idea sir. Just, it's an entire team of elite scientists, and we're sort of just left scratching our heads because we haven't found so much as a way to even.... what I'm saying, sir, is that we're going to have to hire a really good public speaker to work a particularly fat sack of bull feces into the official line, here. Yes, sir. Yes, I understand. Yes. 'Meltdowner', sir. No, I didn't pick the name, sir. I'm afraid I don't know who did, sir. Yes. Yes, thank you. Um, I'll get right on it, sir."
Touma and Othinus have now the closest connection in the series, funny how she in one volume changed what happened in more than 30.
Why does it feel that was written by a 15 year old obese girl?
At this point, it seriously doesn't matter if she stays or not, she'll stay as irrelevant as she has been during all of NT. Bringing Othinus in is just another nail in her cuffin.
Damn it, I don't want Misaka to go anywhere but Othinus replacing Index would be amazing.
Someone in another thread mentioned that they might let Othinus live if she went through the esper training. I kind of want to see her do it and come out as the next level 5 but she decides to take up residence in Tsuchimikado's old dorm.
Hill of Swords was terrible and most of the fanbase would agree. Stuff like Overlady is pretty good though.
She's hot but I don't like the idea of her joining the harem. She was shaping up to be a fine villain, this heel-face turn is way to soon. I hope she's rusing. Instead of adding someone like Othinus to the harem mainline(Index, Mikoto, maybe Itsuwa), I'd rather Pendex just be destroyed so Index can use magic and be useful.
He's named as "Academy City Level 0 Esper" in the oficial images from the novel.
>what is literal translation
>Othinus replacing Misaka
I don't think so. Best we can hope for is another Birdway, she might as well be her onee-san. Index is virtually nonexistent anyway.
>For example he doesn't like that magicians don't use guns
I will never understand this.
What use could firearms possibly serve to people who can do shit like take anti-tank missiles to the face or summon flame swords that can vaporize human beings with the slightest touch? At what point would conventional weaponry ever be useful to any magician worth mentioning?
Anon, you have the same dreams as me. Let's hope Kamachi doesn't break our illusions.
But that was written by a guy/girl on the fucking spacebattles forum.
>Othinus claims she's moving into Tsuchimikado's empty dorm
>Touma rejoices at being able to use his own bed again
>returns from school to discover that she just broke down the wall to make one large dorm
>this is the only bed
>At what point would conventional weaponry ever be useful to any magician worth mentioning
Well… presumably a magician might run out of juice to perform spells and shit, and having a gun might be useful in that case
To be honest, it's mostly just the setting, and some of the concepts behind the powers, and very few characters.
The whole thing has so much more potential but lately it went down the loli route.
At least the world ended.
Kerry pls, this isn't Nasuverse.
Most magicians tend to fight other magicians though. If for some reason they're left unable to use spells against their opponent, who CAN use spells, they've essentially already lost.
It's not that magicians don't like to use guns.
It's that most of them can NOT use guns, as that would go against the Magic x Science treaty.
The ones who DO use guns are from outlawed magic cabals and aren't completely reliant on their own magic shit.
Any magician who is preparing to fight Touma and knows about IB, they deserve to be sogebu'ed if they don't bring a gun.
I swear, Kamachi could build up and develop a truly heartwarming and exciting relationship if he wanted, the set up and basis is already there with the events of NT9 and is impressive, but that would mean ditching his entire harem and the fans can't have that. Othinus will obviously fade into obscurity once this arc ends.
>Magic x Science treaty
How about when you don't want to expose the existence of magic? A gun could also be useful when incantation and rituals are too long.
Explain this treaty and how it makes sense.
To be honest i don't think it's going to end good with Othinus.
The NTs had this whole "You can't save everyone on your own Touma!" theme.
Now he's truly alone against the world, making him unable to protect Othinus would be the perfect ending for the Othinus arc.
I expect NT9 and NT10 to be full of feels.
The science side compromises to not use magic,and the magic side compromises to not use most scientific shit.
There was a magician that rebelled from Necessarius because the way he used magic went against the treaty.
He used some shit that changed the coloration of vitamin B2 or something.
Technically, Othinus has nowhere else to go. She's targeted by the big dogs now, and Touma is her only hope. The strongest girls in Touma's harem tend to be needed elsewhere by their respective organizations (Kanzaki, Birdway, etc), but Othinus doesn't fit that bill. And since she's currently close enough to Touma, I don't see why she can be a heroine of equal capacities as Mikoto, at least for a few more volumes.
>aren't completely reliant on their own magic shit
Because they have a gun.
Also, I'm pretty sure Kamachi is very pro gun control given past depictions.
Some of the characters are endearing, like BiriBiri and Accelerator. I'll freely admit that the vast majority of characters in the series aside from the central ones are absolute crap. The science side powers are also cool. That being said, Raildex is the closest thing to a powerlevel shounen that I enjoy.
>How about when you don't want to expose the existence of magic?
That's what people clearing fields are for.
The Science and Magic sides basically agreed to not use shit from the other side, since the two are essentially in a supernatural equivalent of the Cold War. For magicians, this basically means that directly using advanced technology in their skillsets (things like using lasers to carve runes quickly, for example) is outlawed.
Hence, no guns.
Fiamma had nowhere else to go either.
You don't see him shacking up with Touma.
>Magic side doesn't want Science side to get stronger using their shit
>But Science side doesn't want Magic side to get stronger too
>So they make a treaty so that their "fields" do not overlap
>A lot of criminal magic cabals use shit like lasers to inscribe runes or shit like that that goes against the treaty, so the "legal" Magic Side eliminates them
The basis of the treaty is that it gives people like Brave and that one guy from Norse Mythology a way to vastly increase their power. If everyone was running around using science and magic together the whole world would fall apart pretty quickly.
Yes, we said that about Itsuwa.
She's in jail now.
WHAT DOES THAT EVEN MEAN? Do magicians not use toothpaste? They ride on planes. That's so arbitrary.
Magic in Raildex is scientific anyway.
By what right does AC have to ban magicians using tech and how on earth are they going to monitor them?
He was rescued by Ollerus and Silvia. Othinus is getting protected by Touma this time.
>“That spell of yours certainly has a unique method of use,” said Stiyl as weapon clashed with weapon. “You said you hate the Anglican Church. In that case, I’m guessing the reason behind all this is the treaty. In truth, it is difficult to call the coloration effect of vitamin B2 a purely magical method. All the magicians you faced in the past were led astray due to that and burned to death in your flames.”
>The world was split into the magic side and the science side.
>And the two sides had created a treaty to ensure neither side invaded the other.
Basically, if a magician used anything other than magic, it's Magic Side hunting season for Academy City.
The day she gets out of jai is coming
Imagine empowering a nuke with magic.
Both the Science Side or the Magic Side could do it.
But they don't because they still don't want the world to end.
They don't have a right. They've made a treaty with the LEGAL magic side(RCC, England, Russia etc) so that AC won't use magic to strengthen their weapons and the LEGAL science side said that they won't use most scientific advancements to strengthen their own powers, with some simple exceptions, like Stiyl being able to use a photocopy machine to print a bunch of his runes.
It basically means no using technology in fights. Everyday life is something else.
>By what right does AC have to ban magicians using tech
They don't. Both sides agreed not to use each other's shit.
>how on earth are they going to monitor them?
Again, they don't, unless it comes up directly for AC. Most of the time, it's the Magic side's job to regulate magicians violating the treaty.
So what's the cutoff point for "scientific stuff?" Anything discovered or invented after the Italian Renaissance? Or The Industrial Revolution? I see Birdway uses a flintlock mini-musket. So what, rifled barrels are banned?
Also, they can not monitor everyone, but the magic side punishes those who break that treaty.
A bunch of Necessarius' missions is to destroy cabals and magicians that broke the treaty.
Academy City has city-melting jets and a ton of other weapons that can equal any single faction on the magic side. The major magic factions don't want a war, so the treaty was enacted. AC gets to gimp the magic side a little bit and the magic side keeps Academy City from causing unessecary damage. Magic also doesn't have the numbers that the science side has, especially since AC mechs basically pilot themselves once you're in them.
You do remember that Birdway is from a criminal magic cabal and is being hunted by the magic side, right?
It's completely arbitrary.
>Richard was not alone. Most modern magicians did not use only the same materials as had been used in ages past for their magic. Even Stiyl used copy paper and lamination to make his rune cards easier to use.
>Magic could be activated using only the products found within a convenience store. There was no need to only rely on rare and expensive antiques. One used the easiest to use materials to create the most simplified spells in order to wield the most powerful magic. That was the most convenient thing to do for someone who was relying on magic to survive while they fought.
>However, that incomprehensible treaty had appeared.
>The treaty ensured that science and magic would not encroach on each other’s territories. No clear line had ever been decided on. A line some unknown person had come up with was followed and whether something violated it or not could almost seem arbitrary. A method that was considered valid one day would be considered unusable the next.
>Everything was based on the whims of the higher ups.
>Imagine empowering a nuke with magic.
Kakine could create a core of dark matter with an exponentially greater fissile yield than enriched uranium or plutonium.
Birdway uses the flintlock because she thinks it looks cool. She's from a criminal magic cabal and doesn't follow the treaty.
The treaty is poorly made, and it causes a lot of problems, and one of the reasons for conflict in the magic side.
Laura must have sold her slutty, shriveled body to AC's board of directors to let Stiyl use copy paper.
And now he's a volleyball.
I want to edit that "easiest to use" into "most accessible", to maintain the rule of threes.
>Laura must have sold her slutty, shriveled body
I don't see any issues with changing it to "most accessible".
Why is Phoenix Wright setting in the US, when it has obvious japanese elements?
Does Nintendo thinks that we are allergic to something foreign?
He'll protect Othinus with the power of love.
>rule of threes
If the power of love is anywhere near as effective (or lack thereof) as the power of friendship in Raildex, Touma's doomed.
No, Capcom does.
I don't see what that has to do with what he said though.
Can't wait for more Laura.
I think he's talking about parallel structure.
Because I don't like over-localisations.
And I like saying Objection.
And I like Saten.
>Noooo, my precious sperm!
You wouldn't an archbishop, right /a/?
>not having magic pistols with infinite ammo and explosive rounds
>Implying Othinus returned to the actual world and not Nagai-space.
I really hope this is a thing. It would be genius.
How does AC decide what tech is allowed and what isn't? Why can't they go further and outright ban the use of magic to those not affiliated with the treaty?
Are people seriously going to panic over a gun or a photocopy machine? Tech is so widespread that I don't think the treaty could even be enforced.
Also, what's preventing both sides from ignoring the treaty and using tech/magic? If they do both sides would still be afraid to attack each other.
When linking actions or adjectives together, a common style is giving then a consistent trait.
"Cool, calm, collected"? All start with 'c'.
"Most accessible, most simplified, most powerful"? All have 'most'.
>TouMAN will never declare war on the world for your sake
I wonder how Othinus felt there, her croth must've been wetter than Biribiri's at the grope scene.
He'd sleep in the tub. Again.
>Laura has a bathtub fetish
>Touma is forced to sleep in a tub
>Touma gets knocked out by a goon
>wakes up in one of Laura's tubs
I think Laura is avoiding Touma.
One of these days he's gonna get sucked into the drain and end up in England or something.
>implying a mere locked door can stop the Magic God Othinus from getting the T
She knows that ending in Touma's harem wouldn't be smartest thing for the head of Anglican Church to do.
People who meet Touma tend to either get punched in the face or want to fuck him.
So I guess she's trying to avoid at least one of those things.
>How does AC decide what tech is allowed and what isn't?
AC doesn't, the Magic side decides what is and isn't allowed for magicians to use, and vice versa. If there's ever an issue that requires further debate, the two argue about it until a conclusion is reached.
>Why can't they go further and outright ban the use of magic to those not affiliated with the treaty?
>Also, what's preventing both sides from ignoring the treaty and using tech/magic?
Now imagine giving the core to Marian for one night. Instead of an overpowered missile, you'd get a spatial warping aircraft that can be launched from a porta potty, locks onto the souls of enemy politicians, has its own AA turrets that are physically incapable of missing, and causes orgasms in whoever pushes the launch button.
I'm guessing Aleister wrote the treaty himself to limit the major religious powers, considering how almost none of the board of directors know about magic.
Touma must have the perfect dick or something because he gets 100% with so many people. He even gets 100% with Izzard on the gay version
Is it generally accepted by everyone that the only good anime arc is Railgun S sisters arc?
Academy City has it pretty easy.
>Does it use mana? Then it's magic.
>Does it use telesma? Then it's magic.
>Does it use Idol Theory? Then it's magic.
It's all pretty simple.
Among animeonly fags, yes.
It was the only one that decently adapted, so yeah.
Name a better anime arc.
Yeah, pretty much. All of Index is terribly adapted, all of Railgun is crammed with worthless fillershit, and Accelerator is going to suffer something else terrible I bet.
I dunno if it's the "only good" arc haven't watched Index S2 yet, but it's certainly the best.
>implying we'll get an Accelerator adaptation
I didn't read your post right. Please disregard what I posted and call me a faggot.
Index S2 is worse than S1.
I honestly thought it was really fucking dragged
I didn't write it, but you are indeed a faggot.
I dunno man, I thought it was a smash hit.
>tfw have shit tier affinity with my waifu
How is this calculated anyways?
It has great moments but it takes way too long to get to the point
Not to mention Nagai's clover fanfic in the middle of it
What was wrong with Level Upper Arc? The only difference I remember is that instead of ruining Mikoto's crepe, the thief kick Saten in the face and at the end when Kiyama was supposed to hint at Sisters Arc.
The end was specially beautiful. First time JC Staff does something good in Raildex.
Was the Tokiwadai crest always a four-leaf clover?
And then they had to follow it up with this abomination.
Too much Saten
Level Upper wasn't that bad, but it count out some of the Touma scenes and there was way too much filler.
>you realize if Imouto had just jokingly answered "Because I don't want to die", she would have lived.
According to Haimura, yes.
They changed the order of some chapters in order to make Saten more important. They changed Mikoto's character motivation in other times too. They removed 2 Touma scenes in favour of Saten. They removed ITEM's lines, and Gunha's cameo. They added a stupid speech in Mikoto's battle against the golem.
>Accelerator sparing a clone at that point
I don't think so.
I think the problem for me was that I watched that arc before I read it.
>“O-okay. Now where is the boy who Kanzaki needs to service while wearing an exceedingly erotic outfit? I heard he was here in England, so I’d like to see him at least once.”
And they did end up standing near each other after Fiamma appeared, although she didn't say anything.
Sad knowing that Shinobu's plan would've actually worked
If it started crying and begging he would
Would probably go and try to kill the scientists behind the whole thing too
AC's Darkness is weak against awkward moments like this.
Accel-kun only pretends to be edgy. He's a nice guy.
Yeah, he just likes butts.
He doesn't seem to particularly enjoy lolibutt though
He's still in development.
Is this the effect of tobaco?
And once again it is confirmed, that being Stiyl is a never ending suffering.
Touma at least can achieve something.
A-at least he has some people who like him
I like butts too. Butt > boobs.
This has new animations!
He's gonna get raped.
>tobacco turns women into loli
>but turns man's penis into a pencil
G-Guys, Kamachi isn't actually going to write Othinus into irrelevancy after this arc, right? It's probably the first time I feel something romantic inside me for anyone ever.
Which Level 4 would you girlfriend?
>dresses like a hooker
Harder a choice than I thought
Saiai has the best dialog so I'd go with her
I can't help it, anon.
>Not animated characters that won't get much fanart
truly there is no end to his suffering
I would say Saiai if she wasn't dressed like a super slut.
Can we stop bullying the guy he's 14
That's what he gets for smoking
This is just tragic.
Saiai or WORST.
Othinus has some decent fanart compared to other not animated characters that are older.
She would troll me softly everyday.
Thanks god for that, I hope she stays relevant for some time. I'm needing material for a Othinus folder.
But she's walking cocktease either way, it can't be helped.
Funnily enough he gets 70% with Laura.
well whoever made this clearly has shipping bias
There wasn't at least one world where they were dating?
Its one of the reason I love anime, I feel anime does the whole superhumanish fantasy setting better than most western stuff. There is a good bit of western stuff I find done well, just anime has the more diverse settings.
When Miki and Haimura punched Kamachi.
But that's not Othinus.
I don't mind her being super lewd, but dressing like an actress from a gyaru JAV is too much.
We're a few piercings away from an Alice no Takarabako doujinshi.
Othinus is shit
Othinus is the girl who has been with him the longest.
Captcha: Tomas frlod
Oh boy here we go
At least 70% isn't so bad.
Sluten please go
That leopard skin outfit may have been drawn by Haimura, but I don't think of it as something she would canon wear. Same for a lot of other characters Haimura has drawn alternate outfits for.
Man, the nightlife really did a number on WORST.
70% with Kanzaki.
70% with either Birdway.
47% with Agnese.
36% with Orsola.
31% with Sasha Kreutzev.
61% with Alisa.
38% with Shutaura.
With this, Othinus, Biribiri and Headcrab all have 100% with the T.
Harem end is getting closer.
Try Kakine and Yuriko.
Got a hundred with Itsuwa too, a shame what happened to her.
Looks like the dark matter cock is not for her, no OTP, sorry.
Who the hell makes these anyway?
When is Fusou coming back? I liked her.
You know what would be funny? If alter-universe really did have a female Accelerator.
He also gets 100% with Frenda, Fremea, Mugino, Saiai, and Girl in Dress. Only 76% with Rikou and 89% with Byouri.
100% - Biribiri, Headcrab, Othinus, Sluten, Itsuwa
88% - Accelerator
Is there anything that doesn't goes well with the T.?
He's just the gift that keeps on giving, isn't he?
>with Mugino the completionist
Anon no you're gonna get the entirety of AC on his ass
Nothing stops the TouMAN.
It's been a while since I wanted to stop discussing dicks.
Question! Where did the name "Suzushina Yuriko" pop up from?
She does terribly with 10032 and Worst
Also 10032 has one funny vagina.
Thread is almost dying, don't worry.
>Girl in Dress
I'm okay with this.
The scientists were probably fucking around with it.
Accelerator mentioned home many characters were in his name.
Wait for it...
The ride won't fucking stop.
No sir, I don't like it.
Headcrab, Biribiri, Othinus, Itsuwa, Kuroko, Last Order, Sluten.
Harem end keeps getting closer
I think that's enough for today, dickminds.
>person has interaction with another character once
Why does this happen so much
>no 100% affinity
It has to.
You'll warm up to it one day.
This love never ends...
>Headcrab, Biribiri, Othinus, Itsuwa, Last Order, Kuroko, Sluten, Kreutune, Birdway
Let's complete 10, come on, this has tons of characters, think of another one.
Good job TouMAN
Are you stupid?
Why's there a book called Rail Gun
Level 5 Penis
10 girls. I wonder what would happen to the world if Touma ever went full Rance.
Touma bringing the fucking heat. Who can stop this man?
Okay fine, I might have cheated a bit with this one.
Au contraire mon ami.
Touma finds a way.
Alright Railroad, Othinus did things to my dick, so to compensate for the lack of doujin or erotic fanart of her, I'm going to fap to every single one Railroad doujin on sadpanda until NT9 is released.
