js06 translated this last thread:
>After the movie and Railgun S, the anime will stop for the time being.
>"In the original manga, the Daihaseisai episode is still ongoing and the To Aru series itself is still growing. The anime will stop for the time being, but if you support the series in the other media, I think another possibility could arise. You just need to patiently stick with the series."
Is this a newfag thing?
She'll be fine. She takes after her mother after all.
I wonder if she shaves or if she has any hair to shave to begin with
You don't want to know if nuns shave
>Not long hair
Picture is still approved.
There's actually a girl in my class that was going to be a nun but gave up halfway
She doesn't even shave her mustache
Index ones seem to though
Proof that Touma feeds her well.
why isn't 16 the picture of her naked
But Accelerator was the only one who could satisfy her
Who's that supposed to be.
What if Will-Smith-of-the-network calls upon Accelerator for help in the NT boss rush?
I just want more Accelerator/Touma interaction
The Will only cares about Touma so far. I'm curious as to how she will react to Mikoto and vice versa.
>Hey sis, I got him first, YOLO.
Is it still possible to buy the first volumes?
>Get over there or have fun being a cripple with no loli
I can imagine Bill being quite persuasive.
After staying all day in the dorm doing nothing and eating everything she can, I'm surprised she isn't fatter yet.
I think Accelerator would want to help Touma even without needing to be threatened as long as he knew what was happening and was sure LO was safe
Years later, and I still like Index.
She is fatter, but apparently all went to her cleavage
You mean the LN?
Believe so, Old Testament volumes still sold like 250 thousand in 2013 I think.
She won't threaten him, but rather bribe him.
>Hey Accel, if you come help out Touma I'm gonna make LO dress up in cute outfits and let you take pictures.
>Hey Accel, if you come help out Touma I'm gonna make Touma dress up in cute outfits and let you take pictures.

Is this a seizure in written form?
Why doesn't Kamachi make an entire LN solely revolving around the lolis of the series?
The protags are doing their thing while they all team up and engage in shenanigans.
Wasn't that one of the sub-plots of NT5 and 6?
>She makes a fortune selling them to various characters in the series.
NT5/6 kinda. What with LO and Fremea running around getting into trouble, Fraulein turning into a little girl and Beetle being a lolicon protector.
>If an anime sells enough and helps the original work a lot then they won't make more because the LN is already big enough
>If the anime sells like shit they won't make more because they won't get much money from it
There's no way to win.
Holy fucking shit
Daily reminder that Saten is objectively best girl.
A Sister in the tubes they come in.
>Being this mad because of the anime
That's a given. Although I doubt those reminders are daily.
My little anon can't be this new
Can all Saten fags please pick up a trip so i can filter them?
>Implying there's more than one
I wish you were right, and Nagai was all the Satenfags.
How does everyone not own one? I can barely handle that pic.
It's obvious, they are not for sale.
Which half would you frenda?
What's the matter? Can't handle your own shitty taste?
No, I mean, the person who keeps posting Saten pics and "Saten is best" posts is just one person.
You underestimate the amount of time she runs around wondering where the fuck Touma went.
No, she just sits around wondering when the fuck will Touma be back.
The bottom half has the most useful bits.
>"I'm a feminist!
Did he take lessons from Touma?
You're mad cuz I'm stylling on you.
Touma is the best feminist.
daily reminder that the person Touma thinks about when bored is index, not Mikoto
He probably draws everyone.
I bet he has a ton of pictures involving Stiyl getting hurt by stuff.
Not anymore he only thinks of Othinus now.
What js06 translated and posted regarding waiting for the anime, was that from the same news back in october or a new recent scan?
The move wasn't done by Nagai.
He was just drawing his pets.
See Sphynx right under her?
Why is Touma so cool?
Reminder that Touma has been with Othinus longer than with any other girl.
Daily reminder that is nagaispace filler.
That was a more recent scan I believe.
Then why isn't biribiri on there?
>how can appease the Great One's stomach today
And was killed 10031 times by her
The ultimate tsundere
Index and Sphynx are his pets.
Biri is like a stray cat that eats food when you leave it out sometimes but you don't actually want as a pet.
You don't make it justice. He has been with her longer than all the heroines together.
Oh god why is Saten so cute? Look at her bellybutton I want to fap on it.
Goddamn magazine art is puke inducing.
That's not even the movie. It's the last episode of Railgun S.
Ok. Thanks guys. I still have some small hope for the dengeki spring festival, but the fall festival seems much more likely and to keep expectations low.
goddamn it moot
>YFW THE WILL will find a way to give him access to calculation space
>YFWNF when it allows him to insta-analize every attack that goes for him and counter it.
I thought he sees her as one of the guys.
>downtime kills thread
I'm still here
We're all here, but we've been having generals non-stop for a while now.
I'm here. I was thinking about discussing something but then I forgot about it when downtime happened.
For now, which hair style looks better on her?
B and 7, though nothing beats the original.
Just imagine it
>NT10 begins like 10 days after the end of the NT9
>Prologue and chapter 1 are focused on the Alliance pursuing TouMAN and Derethinus, Thor getting wet thinking about "current" TouMAN, Ollerus and Fiamma getting wet thinking about hunting him and ex-majin, harem being devastated with half of it going full depression and the other half going full "stop him even if it kills him" mode
>chapter 2 returns to the situation from NT9.
>Everyone going "what the fuck Touma!? Why are you doing this?!", Birdway going all "I knew he would get more and more dangerous, blablabla, should've killed him earlier"
>Suddenly multiple Gregorian Chant level orbital nukes come from the Alliance appear in the sky targeting Othinus
>Everybody shat their pants, especially people who understand magic - they will all die and the blast will easily destroy Tokyo and surroundings
>TouMAN just stands silently as he mutters:
"Imagine Breaker... Activate"
>Everything fucking erased
>Alliester, Aiwass, Kiharas and whoever wants the IB are cumming with the force of thousand suns and ahegao hard as they realize that TouMAN started the awakening of IB
>Majin( magic god) who slowly looses her power and the person who slowly awakens the power of majin( demon god; Touma~~Invisible DEMON)
Get ready for evil TouGOD
Accelerator boy pussy can't stop throbbing and yearning for this evil T
>Accelerator appears and says how he admired Touma and now he's simply just evil
>Another rematch about to begin
>"Stop it or you'll become a cripple with no loli"
>Accelerator joins the team
You need to calm down son. You're being too edgy.
As a short hair/shoulder length purist, her original is best.
Tell me again why we can't Index III again?
Is it because they haven't finished milking raildex or what? Is the publisher saying no to any continuation?
I just cannot unsee her arm as a deformed foot going up.
Also this hairstyle is best.
As far as I understand
>Anime is practically a commercial for novels
>Novels sell really good
>Therefore, anime would not increase the novel sales by much, lowering its effectiveness as a form of investment
>No anime until sales drop/other financial incentive appears
Well, it was expected that it would happen considering that they wasted their money on a such a mediocre film.
I remember this pic being posted constantly during early 2010 was what started my interest on Raildex.
Sasha riding on Stiyl's shoulder while they fight vampires in Monaco then go buy casual clothes with Vento when?
>implying Accelerator won't be all like "You are not the person that I admired!( But my god! You are so cool! I want to be you!)" and get wrecked before Will Smith will appear.
I just want TouMAN to fuck everyone hard and get at least a little happiness.
Besides for the people he defeat he is the "incarnation of destruction".
And don't forget the fucking dragon in his arm created by Lizzy. Wouldn't be surprised if he was natural DRAGON like being.
Cept it was met with quite good impressions and quite good sales.
Only at the theaters. The BD sales were mediocre for a movie.
I want to see the adventures of Sasha's escape as she does everything she can to get away from Vasilisa, who wants to dress her up in cute outfits.
>The Blu-ray release for the special edition of the movie debuted at the top of the Blu-ray charts
Nearing a 50,000 total is not mediocre for a movie. It was quite profitable for them.
None of the above
Akatsuki from Log Horizon kind of reminds me of Sasha.
>not having her actually bald.
you sicken me.
Did you even see his eyes? Something inside him broke. Some loose screws appeared... Or we can only now see them.
I wouldn't doubt TouMAN becoming the villian - after all he wants other to be happy even if it brings him suffering and misfortune. Like making a new works for them with him not being part of it as a villian
World not works.... Fuckin phone
Anon, he tried to kill himself when Othinus showed him a legitimate world where everyone is happy except him.
Why did he need to kill himself? Even if he wanted them to be happy, there's no reason for he himself to die.
That's not quite it. Othinus showed him a world where everyone is happy because he isn't there.
Which kind of makes sense, if IB didn't exist Crowley probably wouldn't have started his Keikaku and things would be better overall.
His existence was bringing misfortune. He tried to kill himself, but Will-tan stopped him and he actually started fighting for himself.
Implying Mikoto or Misaki can be happy without the Touman
Mikoto is happy with Accel. Misaki is happy with Gunha.
But Headcrab could, that bitch. I bet Izzard fucked her a lot.
If they'd never met him, yes, they could
They had a life before they met him anon, and without IB no Keikaku and without Keikaku no sister suffering.
>because he isn't there
This is stupid. First off, if you're right and Crowley based his entire plan off Imagine Breaker, then the clones and even espers wouldn't exist. So clearly this isn't the case.
Second, Touma's non-existence would not have caused Accelerator to stop killing clones after the first.
This isn't a "the world is better off without you" scenario. This is a "the world is better for everyone except for you" scenario.
I think Izzard genuinely loved her and didn't do anything to her, he just wanted to save her.
Pretty sure Othinus can fill in the logic problems with "Fuck you, i'm omnipotent" if she wants.
The details are different, but the world probably would actually be a better place without IB, and therefore Touma, in it.
And this isn't the idea behind what's happening here.
This is not a "the world would be better off without you" thing. It was never that. Stop pushing this stupid idea.
Do we know if she actually changed the world to not have Touma in it or does this all take place in a state of limbo and she just shows him visions of what life would be like without him.
Othinus isn't omniscient. She wouldn't actually know what a "world without Touma" would be like. All she can do is create a hypothetical world where everyone's happy except for him. Which is what she's doing.
She changes the actual world, it's not visions.
Although this is very much possible you would think Touma would realize at the same time his friends would never want him to off himself just so they get a better shot. Sure a lot of people have suffered but they have gained things as well from said events.
Fits his speech in NT 6 though, where he says he'll cut his own flesh instead of someone else's and asks why Birdway can't do the same.
Good thing the will was around to remind him he was being an idiot.
Kuroko would like him to off himself.
She's a cockblocking bitch, not a friend of Touma's.
I bet Touma would consider her a friend.
>Touma: "Hey Acqua, I know you tried to kill me before, but we're friends now, right?"
>Touma: "Best friends."
Now available for purchase the Slut Version.
more like a friend of a friend
They had a nice moment in volume 8.
i had nice moments with friends of friends.
>Kuroko was princess-carried by Touma
How many can boast that?
That's not something that Kuroko is proud of.
Damn, that sounds lonely.
A small part of her, the pure, primal part, was probably in ecstacy.
Mikoto now dimly realized something.
Mikoto had always thought she was someone special. She believed that her distance with this boy was closer than that of anyone else around him. If the boy had had a list with the names of a thousand people and, while he was browsing through it, came across the name "Misaka", he should have been slightly interested in that instant and looked at that name a bit longer.
However, in reality, that was not the case.
It was such a small realization, but it gave Mikoto’s heart a large shock. Why something this small hurt her so much, Mikoto didn’t know—nor did she have a way to solve it. If possible, she really wanted to run away. Mikoto wanted to run away from this inexplicable pain so much.
But Mikoto couldn’t do that.
She didn’t know why, but she couldn’t turn her back on him; she couldn’t leave the boy and not come back.
That would be very painful.
Compared to the pain now, it would be a lot more painful.
(…Ahh, I’m such an idiot.)
Mikoto sighed in her heart.
The boy seemed to not notice the internal struggle of Mikoto, only asking with a puzzled voice, “What are you smiling about?”
Can Mikoto beat Static?
At least that one, I don't know much about the comic one.
I was really surprised by that scene after watching the anime first. JC Staff gave that scene a total of about 5 seconds so I didn't think it was that serious.
Should beat both versions fine. He's immune to electricity but so is she, and her magnetism can fuck shit up. Plus she's much faster in movement and reactions.
Yeah, depriving all characters of internal monologues does that.
You mean spending her time practicing performing positions in the Kama Sutra in preparation for when she becomes Touma's wife.
When was this?
Oh, little did he know.
Volume 5, when Touma tells her that he doesn't care if she dates Fake-Unabara or not.
She assumed he had a thing for her and didn't take it well when it turned out he didn't.
>yfw pre-memory loss Touma knew everything that was going to happen
So she'll practice forever.
I'm not sure. He's immune to her electrical attacks and outdoes her physically but her railgun could kill him if it connects.
But Static can fly.
Mikoto needs a shitload of hydrogen and a large body of water in order to pull that same feat off.
I need to go back and read the earlier volumes
And? Doesn't matter if he can't hurt her, especially when her iron sand can stretch two kilometers.
She can kind of fly through AC. She does it in the Railgun Daihaseisai when she is late for an event (the one 10032 takes over for).
As long as there's metal around (like buildings etc) mikoto can just play spiderman with her magnetism.
Had Touma never met Index that day, he would have spent it going to the arcade with Aogami and Tsuchi. There he would have met Misaki whom Aogami knows is the fifth level 5, Misaki knowing he's the sixth, and they would have had a grand adventure dealing with a group of skillouts led by that one dude who was Fremea's guardian and Shiage's best friend. Touma and Shiage would have then teamed up to fight Accelerator since he was killing clones in their territory.
The basis of the Kamijou Faction would have been formed on a single day had Index not shown up. And Touma would have gotten a girlfriend.
Didn't WORST create explosions to propel herself? It's a long way from flying, but it's something.
Maybe she can use herself as Railgun ammo and shoot herself to him?
She can jump between buildings and travel pretty fast. And over short distances she's insanely fast.
I can't take it anymore! Why must you fuckers always downplay Mikoto at every opportunity? Even with fucking shit like Static Shock?
It's not like he can't get a girlfriend now, he just doesn't want to.
The problem with Mikoto's powers is more that she has to figure out how to do that shit. Once she's got it figured out it isn't hard anymore. Like she doesn't know of the exploding air to brake trick so she didn't use it during the WW3 arc, even while she could easily do it with powers hundred times as strong as WORST
...What? We all just said she wins mate.
Unless you're joking, in which case I apologize. Continue trolling.
>Maybe she can use herself as Railgun ammo and shoot herself to him?
And disintegrate herself in a couple of meters? that doesn't sound smart
Everyone seems to be in agreement that Static would get whoop whooped.
He's pretty weak, and Misaka has the advantage of magnatism and iron sand crazyness. Plus the Railgun if she really needed it.
Where was this from again?
She doesn't have to do it at 3 times the speed of sound.
>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.
This is from NT8. Touma doesn't have a girlfriend because he doesn't wants to.
Still, she has no way of protecting herself from friction, going at railgun speed must burn a lot, even if she doesn't use all her power
If Mikoto would use something stronger than arcade coins as ammo she could hit anything in a 1 km radius within human reaction speed.
There are not many things capable of taking such blows.
>his experiences told him
What experience? You're just 4 month old you damn bastard.
But he's talking about old Touma, pre-memory loss
>Mikoto can cling to walls
>She can web-sling with electricity
>She has Mikoto Sense
All she needs is a giant robot.
4 months of Misaka trying to kill him and Index bitting his head
Nips are crazy
His experience with women mostly consists of being used, abused, and punching them in the face.
>The one time he ever got to experience a lap pillow, he was probably too numb and desperate to enjoy it
Someone damn well better give him a fucking lap pillow after this arc's over.
What about boobs pillow?
I will forever not hate JC staff as much for doing that scene really well
Itsuwa beat her to it.
She even rubbed his head to make him feel better.
I just want Touma to be happy.
Don't people get brain damage when reading a grimoire? How come index can read 103000 of them?
Same reason she is constantly hungry
>Don't people get brain damage when reading a grimoire? How come index
She is brain damaged
But to be serious, isn't that why she got her memories wiped all the time?
Seems to just be an innate ability of hers.
No, that was bullshit, remember?
Girl's got Magic God potential along with that perfect recall of hers.
The memory-wiping was a method of control, it was never actually necessary. Necessarius (i.e. Laura) would simply prefer Index to be an obedient doll rather than an individual with a personality.
Imagine how dangerous Index could be if John's Pen wasn't constantly draining her mana.
I am having trouble remembering one moment were Touma was truly happy
that time he played baseball with fukiyose and when Itsuwa cooked for him are the closest I can think of
There was that one time he got totally drunk.
He looked kinda happy when he told Birdway they were going to fight and make up. That didn't last too long though.
There are techniques which can solve this, and apparently Index' perfect memory is one of these. Ollerus Hliðskjálf is another one of these, which allows Ollerus to purify himself of the knowledge he's learned from many, many grimoires.
Either both of them have magic-god potential. Due to Index however not knowing how to purify her lifeforce into mana (originally she was unable to do this due to John's pen) her potential doesn't show, while Ollerus is known as the almost-magic-god.
I thought John's Pen still hasn't been removed from Index, it just hasn't surfaced since WWIII.
i thought it had been complete destroyed with the destruction of the controller.
There's already art?
She's so irrelevant now that people tend to forget details about her.
That just means it can't be remotely activated and controlled anymore. It's still there.
Already? The novel's been out for the better part of a week now.
The originals don't kill you if you are willing to spread the knowledge, they even protect the reader if necessary
It is explained that people need to be conditioned properly to be able to read grimoires. Someone young and innocent like Index wouldn't have developed the kinds of preconceptions that would prevent her from fully embracing the twisted logic of magic. The same goes for just about any mage.
They also have to like you. It's the grimiore's choice to impart its knowledge.
When he got to cop a feel on best clone
kinda sucks, i was hoping that with John pens gone she was able to use magic herself and become relevant again.
> Possessing the knowledge of over a hundred thousand magical textbooks
> Not possessing the knowledge of how to generate mana from lifeforce
I'm pretty sure it's automatic anyway; you don't need to know the principles of magic to cast a spell, you just need to perform the requisite actions with the proper tools. Komoe merely followed Index's instructions when casting that healing spell, Angel Fall was enacted by cosmic coincidence, and Gremlin troops tricked Accelerator into performing a certain series of movements that resulted in Accelerator casting a spell without him realizing it.
Would it be possible to mindbreak a grimoire?
He was enjoying himself during the fake date.
So Index is a grimoireslut?
Index is generating mana constantly but John's Pen is draining it, that's the reason she is always hungry.
Which makes sense for Index, since with her perfect memory the grimoires will survive. And she can use their knowledge to intercept spels or even in John's pen, use the grimoires to construct powerful spells.
If it'd be automatic all espers over academy city would be bursting in blood from time to time.
Also Index thinks it's impossible due to being told that it's impossible for her.
> No, don't fold me over! You'll break my spine!
Whats with the generals all of a sudden
Is this cause of NT9?
Those are not the eyebrows of a content man. They are those of a troubled youth.
Should be mentioned somewhere in volume 3, It is possible to neutralize a grimoire by using its own rules against it. That requires reading it though, which is not adviced.
Yes. We got the spoilers, the pictures, now we are eagerly awaiting the translation
If John's Pen were gone, she'd be far too OP to be able to make use of as a storytelling element. There's a reason Othinus gets nerfed at the end of this novel, and Accelerator previously. It's an unfortunate catch 22 for her, she'd have more luck in the relevance department if she took an active role outside of battle.
The most recent novel was a bit of a game changer the next one will be crazy.
Didn't Stiyl describe it before as doing something weird to your body way back when?
He had a better time with Etzali than with her, at least until he tried to kill him
> If it'd be automatic all espers over academy city would be bursting in blood from time to time.
Recheck the Hawai'i arc, Accelerator was tricked into casting a spell just by moving his body a certain way. There probably have been espers that accidentally cast spells in the past, but Academy City would just chalk that up as unfortunate side effects of the PCP.
>Othinus punches in his harem
Why am i not surprised?
Christmas or the ship will actually be dead
I know what happened in NT3.
I'm pretty sure they couldn't chalk that up to the PCP though. And forcing Accel to use magic probably required a bit more than him just moving in a certain way, but that wasn't expanded on.
Shit is not that easy, it requires a lot of weird breathing and stuff
Was a Christmas kissu foreshadowed?
> it requires a lot of weird breathing and stuff
So it's the Ripple.
>A certain bridge
Inb4 just as it actually happens Kuroko dropkicks in
>Touma returns to AC on his warpath
>Meets Mikoto on the bridge
>She confesses and begs him to come back
>He's already dead inside
So how was Komoe able to cast a spell with only a few minutes of training? (Or was it one of those spells that didn't actually require mana from the caster, only for them to perform the actions of casting the spell? It's been so long that I don't remember.)
It stems from a character interview about her ideal confession spot or something. Which just happens to be a bridge that totally has nothing to do with the one in volume 3.
1. Johns pen index was present
2. Setting the stage (the magic circle drawn on the table)
3. Komoe mimicking Index' song?
Following pendex's instructions, and it is not like she succeeded at the first try
So it's possible for someone to purify the life force of another, even if they cannot purify their own?
I guess there are different type of spells. Komoe turned her apartment into a temple plus the song. Singing requires a certain way of breathing anyway.
> Index is generating mana constantly
Consciously or unconsciously?
Pendex teach her how to do it
Wasn't there one point in Part 1 or 2 where the Jojo tricked a vampire into doing Ripple breathing? I seem to remember something like that.
Not that I remember
Or maybe it was one of the Pillar Men, I really ought to go through the manga again watch the BD rips of the first season of the anime before Stardust Crusaders starts.
I thought TouMAN was routelock'd, but Ragnarok is definitely going to take care of that, then we get TouMAN as the antagonist.
Training Arc here we go!
Not a kiss specifically, but it's obviously implied
>Where would you like for your first date?
>Eh? Ah...... Well...... A bridge with snow falling or somewhere romantic......
This one is funny, since she may be talking about Heaven Canceller
>Who do you want to marry? And how will your wedding ceremony be?
>Eh? M-Marry?? Haven’t actually thought of it… Maybe a church that is has a beautiful ocean scenery outside…and also gets blessing from the Gekota priest?….hehehehehe….
Plus Christmas was talked about alot in NT 7, and we have no clue what happened to those rings.
>Thinking that Touma will survive/be sane until Christmas
>Biri gets the Touman
>They embrace and kiss
>Crowley stabs him through the heart
>Biri gets the Touman
>Kuroko telekicks in
>slips because Touma has melted snow on his head
>does a flippy twist midair and ends up kissing him in front of Misaka
>Christmas is ruined forever
I now have an image of Aleister fapping to them kissing, and swimming inside his tube with his own cum.
>Mikoto NTRs Crowley.
>He's so mad he renames the Aeon of Horus the Aeon of Bitches and Horus.
> 55. Let Mary inviolate be torn upon wheels: for her sake let all chaste women be utterly despised among you!
Isn't that his keikaku?
>he brings a gift to their wedding
>its a big box of drugs, a list of nearby brothels, and enough cash to buy all of them for a week
Crowley has a special system to filter the cum and bake it into cookies.
But dont they NOT cut the hair while they're in the tube? And misaka doesn't have a large pair of misakas unless she's worst. That picture makes no sense if it's a mikasa
They had to go back into the tubes to get their adjustments.
It's 10032 after the Remnant arc before Touma walks in on her in that weird tube thing.
Satenbutt is a miracle of the universe.
Yes, it's truly amazing how she can fit such a large quantity of dicks in there at once.
She is pure. You can't get any purer than her.
She want to protect his smile.
He can still smile?
I want to hug him ;_;
She can't protect what is lost, she can only dry his tears
She can help him regain his smile.
She just needs to reach out to him.
She just needs to reach out and hold his hand, just has he's done for so many others up until now.
And perhaps hold his head against her bosom, and just tell him everything's okay.
That he's not alone. That there will always be at least one person by his side.
So are you all ready to read about Touma sinking into the bottom of despair?
>She just needs to reach out and hold his hand
Hopefully not the right one...
>Touma accidentally kills the being that saved his life
And this is how Touma snaps.
>Will possesses 10032
>Touma and Will start doing the Tango
>Touma accidently touches her with his right hand
>10032 comes back
>"I'm okay with this, Misaka says as he bounces up and down."
It wouldn't kill her. It would just momentarily disconnect the clone in question from the Network.
As long as the Network itself exists, so would the Will.
In order to truly destroy the Network, you'd need to kill off every clone.
Nah, it'd probably just drive her out of whatever Misaka she's possessing.
Or depower them.
I'm still waiting for the day when he accidentally touches Kazakiri with his right hand
This Will of the Network seems like a convenient plot device Kamachi pulled out of his ass. Where has it been all this time?
NT9 translations when?
It showed up in NT 6, and we already knew the Network had collective desires and such, we just didn't know until NT 6 those desires were sentient.
Once you scan the volume.
NT6 was her first appearance, and she said that Accelerator shouldn't make her waste her precious ticket in her email, which I assume meant the ability to manifest through one of the Misakas isn't something she can just do at any time
Are fetishes shared by the network?
I know she appeared in NT6, and it doesn't make it any better.
>With a puzzled look, Misaka Worst said, “Couldn’t you just drag it out with an iron claw?”
>“Go to hell, loner, spits out Misaka in response to this black-hearted monster.”
>Though, since they were both existences controlled by the single large will of the Misaka Network, that opinion had technically once existed within Misaka Imouto as well.
At least it was built up a bit, rather than just suddenly showing up in NT9 for the first time
Sorry, don't know what to tell you, just a matter of personal opinion I guess. We know from Kazakiri that this kind of shit can happen, and we already knew the Sisters had collective desires and decision-making from SS2. If that's not enough for you, sorry.
Unless there's a convincing explanation as to why she didn't appear earlier, it's clear that Kamachi just asspulled her. Introducing her only two novels before she is suddenly relevant was the minimum thing he could've done to try to be subtle.
Possibly considering she is the will of their collective desires and she cares for Touma.
Wait, did you even read NT 6?
She usually leaves the actions of the Network up to individual units. She even called visiting Accel and possessing LO a "precious ticket", and asked him to not force her to use it again. She can't just show up whenever she wants.
It's not like she came completely out of nowhere.
The Level Upper created the AIM Burst. Aiwass and Hyouka are similar beings, only for the whole of Academy City. The Misaka Network is smaller, but ultimately separate from the main mass of Academy City's AIM field. So it's not weird how it would have its own unique entity separate from Aiwass and Hyouka.
I'm pretty sure that she was mentioned before NT6 though her first appearance was NT6
She'd be fine as long as he doesn't touch her core. Stuff that regenerates comes back once contact is removed.
Three novels actually, and the lines
>"And while I may have left Last Order and Misaka Worst with you, I am more interested at making a pass at Kamijou-chan than you /return. And he seems to be in a rather dangerous position too /return. So I would rather you did not make me use my precious ticket here /return."
In her email does imply that she can't show up all willy nilly
> they were both existences controlled by the single large will of the Misaka Network
Which NT volume was that from?
> I am more interested at making a pass at Kamijou-chan than you
Touma's a fucking lucky bastard. Not everybody gets to have a collective consciousness fawning over them.
6, though Worst says basically the same thing in 20 when telling Accelerator that all the Sisters actually hate him.
I just remembered that that Parody SS we never got supposedly had some foreshadowing of things such as
>"That" which is related to the Sisters – Misaka Worst
>"That" which sleeps in British history – Curtana Original
>"That" which awaits in the deepest section of Academy City – Fräulein Kreutune
>"That" which is related to the - Five Elements Institution – Fuse KAZAKIRI or Aiwass
>"That" which is hidden within the Misaka Network – The will of the whole Misaka Network
And for the stuff we haven't seen yet
"That" which is stored in Ryouran Maid School
"That" which is under direct control of Tokiwadai Middle School's Student Council
"That" which is delicate
"That" which writhes at one point in the Sahara
That's what I'm talking about. There has to be a reason why she can't show up anytime she wants and how all the desires and experiences of the network gave birth to her existence, and why she conveniently only showed up until now.
> "That" which writhes at one point in the Sahara
Even the short one? That's all kinds of fucked up.
Well, we've known it for some time, we just didn't know she was sentient.
>“Yes. Those girls have a single large will that intervenes with the many physical bodies, so they don’t need to narrow their thoughts down to only one opinion. This doesn’t work with everything of course, but with options like the cake example they don’t have to choose because they can choose both. After all, they actually have multiple bodies.”
Kazakiri's fear of Imagine Breaker wouldn't make sense if it couldn't kill her, I assume that if she gets touched Kazakiri dies, and another AIM being will be created in her place
Well the thing is, not even Aiwass and Hyouka can just show up whenever they want. We know for a fact that Hyouka can only stay in the physical world for short periods at a time and it seems she has some special conditions she needs to meet in order to do so.
The Will of the Misaka Network should be much weaker than Hyouka, so I imagine she has a much harder time of it.
Too long to quote it all, it's part 7 of chapter three if you want to read it. It's a little depressing.
>"That" which writhes at one point in the Sahara
Wait, didn't historic Crowley write that he summoned something in the Sahara desert?
Welp, time for someone to open up their Crowley books
She tells Touma she's going to meet him again in the original world, meaning that she can show up at will. Maybe she has a time constraint or something?
>Crowley states that he and Victor Benjamin Neuburg evoked Choronzon in the Sahara Desert in December 1909. In Crowley's account, it is unclear whether Choronzon was evoked into an empty Solomonic triangle while Crowley sat elsewhere, or whether Crowley himself was the medium into which the demon was invoked. Nearly all writers except Lawrence Sutin take him to mean the latter. In the account, Choronzon is described as changing shape, which is read variously as an account of an actual metamorphosis, a subjective impression of Neuburg's, or fabrication on Crowley's part.
Probably final arc material, as Choronzon is one of the big contenders for what's in Touma's arm.
>There has to be a reason why she can't show up anytime she wants
She can't because she is not powerful enough
>how all the desires and experiences of the network gave birth to her existence
We have know that the Network was a different entity pretty much from the beginning, we just didn't know it had a personality
>why she conveniently only showed up until now
To save Accel and Touma, nothing weird about that
Remember the AIM burst? It was only destroyed when Mikoto destroyed its core. Touma wouldn't kill Hyouka by touching her skin, but touching her core would probably do her in. From what we've seen, IB doesn't permanently damage regenerating objects unless it comes in contact with their power source.
>We have know that the Network was a different entity pretty much from the beginning, we just didn't know it had a personality
It just so happens to be conscious.
>To save Accel and Touma, nothing weird about that
NT6 onwards wasn't the first time they were in danger.
> Touma wouldn't kill Hyouka by touching her skin
(Although she'd probably still freak out a bit, though not as much like she did when Ellis smashed her face.)
>“While all the Misakas are individuals, they are also one large Misaka connected by the network. This is not a thought pattern unique to this Misaka. It is a portion of the large Misaka over the network.”
It wasn't too long to quote it at all
Less so accel and moreso save touma
Were other bits about LO and stuff though.
Also i'm lazy.
Touma was about to kill himself, it is the first time this happens and it sounds like an emergency to me
And Accel was about to ruin his life
What are the other contestants?
God, Lucifer, some of the other Thelema deities.
Daily reminder that Febli > Fremeshit
so, they'll have to use "that" many times?
so IB is a demon?
Kind of. He's basically the final test before you reach "enlightenment." If you're prepared and you defeat him, your Ego will be destroyed.
Though other people say it's just the word for what happens to you if you try to find Aiwass.
I decided to not read the spoilers this time but from just reading the generals, this volume seems like the beginning of some heavy shit. WW3 tier. At the end of that arc, Kamachi was talking about "the deaths of Touma". This volume seems more important in that regard. What will the novels be called after this arc ends? Index Revelations?
Just A Certain Magical Revelation. Kamachi needs to get rid off the artifact in the title.
That made me sadder than I expected.
To are fukou no migite (a certain unlucky hand)
I've liked the name since I first heard it, and Index has been irrelevant for ages.
> Page 10
To aru majutsu no keiji?
Revelation in the biblical sense is mokushiroku.
Take away the "Index" part, she is pratically irrelevant right now.
She has almost reached Jar Jar Binks status for me.
Jeez, you sure have quite the obnoxious hate trip.
Her name is necessary for brand awareness.
Thing is, originally, Kamachi wanted to give each volume a different title. "A Certain [Adjective] [Noun]". It would have literally been "A Certain" series.
>Thing is, originally, Kamachi wanted to give each volume a different title.
You shouldn't be offended just because someone doesn't like your waifu, anon.
>Her name is necessary for brand awareness.
But her name isn't Railgun.
Funny, I was fapping to this just before I entered this thread.
Gee, what a surprise.
Gee, what a surprise.
I thought that was already the kanji for "Index".
No, she's "Kisho mokuroku"
IIRC the source was some untranslated interview from years ago.
No Index is Kinshomokuroku
havent read any of the mangas are they good
What? Rule of thumb: read the Index LNs, read the Railgun manga.
Index manga gets good art later on at least, though it's shit for skipping arcs and such.
Eh. Honestly, no one ever cares about the Deep Blood arc these days.
We will when vampires start appearing.
Honestly though it's a shame though considering that I like Himegami. That speech in volume 10 about how she feels useless and questions her own reason for living was painful to read.
But the top half has dfc
>We will when vampires start appearing.
Which will never happen because that could potentially make Himegami relevant.
Unless Kamachi did an entire Vampire arc without Himegami even appearing at all, and that would be priceless to watch.
>yfw the boss rush in nt10 involves vampires
>>yfw Himegami isn't even mentioned
Of course. ;_;
Himegami is a slut
>Sasha is running away from her, goes to the Necessarius dorm
>darts into a bedroom thinking it's empty
>it's Stiyl's personal bedroom, it's relatively plain and uninspiring
>he's sitting on a chair at the small table smoking while looking out the window and occasionally at a picture of him, Index, and Kanzaki together
>he doesn't care that she's there and lets her hide there until Vasilisa moves on
>they spend the night just talking with their usual demeanors
>Sasha drinks three bottles of vodka she had hidden on her outfit (Stiyl wonders where she hid them) while Stiyl goes through a whole carton
>at the end they finally, Stiyl taking a shot of vodka and Sasha smoking
>they both find each other's habit disgusting and quickly spit it out
>they finally both burst out laughing at the whole thing
And that's how Stiyl and Sasha became friends.
You shut your goddamn whore mouth.
So you're saying sluts don't exist?
I always think she's holding a dildo covered in her vaginal fluids when I see the thumbnail of this pic.
Well, she was raped by those guys in Misawa Cram School before Izzard took over.
>Accelerator will end up alone
He's planning to become a doctor. He'll figure out how to save LO and Worst.
Yeah, and he'll have a hot collegue
I feel like Accelerator's breasts are larger than Mikoto's.
Is Othinus a slut?
>bunch of kids with different mothers
Slut or former harem protagonist.
I wonder if Touma saw the fake Touma get married.
Othinus made a world where there was another Touma living Touma's life. Or so I've heard.
The nips did mention something about Touma getting NTRed.
>Othinus creates a world where everyone is happy
>Touma might have been okay with leaving that world alone. He'd have probably just left Academy City and attempted to get along on his own.
>But no, Othinus made it so that Touma and his misfortune was actually making things worse in that world. She literally created a world where Touma's very existence was turning things to shit.
I think Othinus deserves at least one punch in the face. Even if Touma doesn't do it, maybe the Will of the Network can possess a clone and do it in his stead.
You leave her alone you hear?
Why are there no adult espers
Itsuwa did nothing wrong!
It probably got explained in detail in the novel somewhere but my guess is that the esper program was introduced early enough for adults to not appear yet. That or most of them didn't survive into adulthood yet
they get sent to the glue factory when they turn 18
She tried to take away Touma's smile.
Do you really think it's okay for that sin to go unpunished?
>If he hadn't had all the knowledge he gain from Tsuchimikado, Etzali and Aiwass he would have died in the first attack
Nope. Knowledge had nothing to do with anything. Accelerator survived against Vodyanoy and company because of Auto-reflect.
>that other time he survived against an archangel
Was also because of Auto-reflect and redirection.
The difference between the two lies in the type of power used. Vodyanoy's group used normal magic power, while Gabriel uses Telesma. Telesma eats into and overpowers AIM, so Accelerator's reflection was incomplete. On the other hand, Magic Power behaves just like normal energies and can be manipulated by AIM. The only problem was that the default equation which Auto-reflect is based on didn't take into account the laws of magic, so the ice spear turned into rainbow lasers.
>she can see electrons
No, Mikoto CANNOT see electrons. What she sees are electromagnetic field lines.
What do you think the world looks like in her eyes?
No, I mean with the electromagnetic field lines.
Again, that's not how it works. Using your logic, popular manga/novels would never get an anime or a second season. Using your logic, SAO S2 would not happen (it's already airing in summer).
SAO S3 Never.
Maybe that's why they're not doing Index II.
Because they don't want their own titles to compete with one another. That wouldn't help anyone at all.
>Because they don't want their own titles to compete with one another.
Mahouka in Spring, SAO in Summer, Index in Fall. There is no competition.
It's just "filters". Read the spoilers.
Basement dwelling neckbeards don't normally have very large incomes. Forcing them to choose between getting one series' DVDs over another isn't going to maximize profits.
we got a tiny glimpse of how she imagine's those lines in the last episode of Railgun S
But this is the same show that thinks railgun rounds are DBZ ki laser beams.
Necessarius' Girls Dorm is a major part of the Kamijou Faction. The most valuable members are Kanzaki, Accelerator and Index.
So what are Mahouka and SAO?
It can't be helped.
Those lines are actually legit, since that's how Mikoto's railgun (and railguns in general) work. The only problem there would be the air might have been too thin for her railgun to work properly and shoot the projectile at that velocity, but the low gravity might have something to do with it.
I can't remember, does she always see the world like that or can she turn it off and on?
Now I wonder how Accelerator would see the world when he imagines and calculates vectors.
Nope. Bigger projectiles move slower. Don't let the Railgun anime fool you, and read Liberal Arts SS.
Wat. Accelerator is part of the Necessarius Girl group?
>Not possessing the knowledge of how to generate mana from lifeforce
But she does. The techniques simply do nothing (since all the mana is drained by John's Pen).
No, those statements are separate. Index isn't part of Necessarius Girls' Dorm either.
No, it's still there. The only thing that was broken was the collar (the thing that forces the memory wipes).
There is still one controller. It's with Laura.
I don't think so. She was really concentrating in order to imagine the electromagnetic spectrum or at least in this case. (I mean she was launching a huge mech at a missile for crying out loud.)
There's no clear indication that she sees it 24/7. I think it would require constant calculations so maybe she can choose not to do those calculations to "turn it off".
>Accelerator was tricked into casting a spell just by moving his body a certain way
That was so he could take part in the ritual and cast an unknown spell. Taking part in a ritual requires magic power.
Read Daihaseisai. If things are properly set-up, people can cast magic by simply touching the spiritual item.
It's in vol 7, actually, and was the reason why the RCC wanted Orsola.
>There has to be a reason why she can't show up anytime
Because she prefers to just remain in the network and not possess a Sister(s). WHy don't you actually read NT6 instead of just pretending to have read it?
>>“Normally, ‘Misaka’ fills the network but leaves the means of external interference to the individual units /return. So don’t expect me to be much of a conversationalist /return. Think of this as being like an email /return. Just so you know, I will simply finish what I am saying even if you ask questions /return.”
>It just so happens to be conscious.
Well duh. Contrary to what others have told you, the Will is not something like Aiwass or Kazakiri. It's just literally the collective consciousness or will of the network. Of course it has to be conscious. That's the whole point. Again,
>>This was something created by Academy City yet different from both the angel-like being and Aiwass.
>>This was something he was unsure could be called human.
>>Perhaps it should be called the “third existence”.
>Accel sees little arrows everywhere
>Kakine sees mythical creatures flying around and is basically on a 24/7 acid trip
>Mugino sees big red buttons begging her to push them
>Misaki sees something similar to Mikoto, only limited to brains
>Gunha sees the world in 2d
No. IB is the seal. The thing being sealed is what's speculated to be Choronzon.
Number six sees fetishes in everything
Vampires are already pretty much extinct. Basically, given the explanation regarding the birth of Gemstones, something like Deep Blood will always appear when there are vampires, to "correct" the balance.

Will Touma be able to break her Anti-Kamijou Attribute?
Only if the situation ever calls for a punch
How can one man suffer this much?
Because he can take it.
Gunha sees everyone as hideous monsters with their organs on the outside, which is why he's obsessed with GUTS
Except when he couldn't
That's nothing. Wait until Othinus instead of being saved by Touma, will sacrifice herself in order to protect him.
How can one man suffer so much? He is TouMAN
Why does it say in volume 10 translations that this 付文玉章(つけぶみたまずさ) is to be called "Sealed Scripture" despite meaning "Love Letter-Love Letter"?
What is the correct translation of this?
I think there's pun in there somewhere. Gonna need js06's help on his one.
Just put in into an american library. Nobody ever comes there.
Hw first met Aiwass and wrote his Book of Law in Egypt.
A railguns's electromagnetic field has nothing to do with air, much less gravity, what the hell are you talking about?
You know his auto-reflect only works within a set of rules, do you? If he had not recognised magic as something fundamentally different to science he would have never be able to reflect it
In fact the reason it works funny with magic is because he doesn't know all the rules behind it, so the reflection only works partially
How up to date is the Index power level chart?
This is the most recent I think
How is Mikoto's railgun set up?
* The projectile is the coin, obviously. As it is made of conductive material, then it also serves as the armature.
* She is the power source.
* The rails are not really rails. Instead, she summons two parallel electrical currents going in opposite directions.
* Somehow she is able to control these currents perfectly such that they are traveling along the same length and are able to stay on their initial positions. No wonder she's a Level 5 -- if maintaining such conditions are easy enough, then we would be seeing at least Level 3 electromasters shooting high-velocity railguns.
Now, what happens when the circuit is closed (when the coin is tossed into the system)? The Lorentz force created by the current accelerates the armature away from the power supply. In traditional rail guns, the recoil effect is in the form of the rails pushing at the breech. Here, the resulting recoil force accelerates air occupying the area where the current is flowing (which is accounted for in all illustrations so far), causing a gust of wind flowing towards Mikoto (and continuing behind her, etc.). Reasons why this is not dangerous to her (as someone who has complete control over the system) should be obvious.
We have seen level 4 electromasters doing it
>If he had not recognised magic as something fundamentally different to science
Nope. He didn't even know ANYTHING about magic at that time. Auto-reflect simply makes a *-1 operation to the direction of whatever "energy" is coming in. The reason it works funny with Vodyanoy's magic is because a simple *-1 to the "direction" of a magical ice spear has more effects than just reflecting it back.
That pasta is older than vol 20. Worst's railgun is also much weaker.
Yes he did, his experiences with Aiwass and his partners in GROUP were the little info he had, it wasn't real info in the normal sense, it was vector data about those sensations he had
And again this -1 thing is not automatic, if it is not contemplated by his rules it doesn't work, remember his fight with Kakine, he can't deflect attacks outside the rules unless he upgrade the rules, without having a glimpse of the rules of magic he couldn't be able of reflecting magic
>Reading Railgun SS2
The plot is a convoluted mess. Why can't you keep things simple but entertaining, Kamachi? More so in a side story with no bearing in the main plot.
What does /a/ think of the English Civil War arc? I enjoyed it quite a bit, but never see it discussed here. Is it not well liked, or is there nothing to discuss because everyone is in agreement that Acqua is GAR as fuck?
The only thing I can remember is Touma surfing a giant sword to punch a princess, that's good enough.
It's two older terms for "love letter" that are rarely used in modern times.
Tsuchimikado just threw together two fancy-sounding message-related words to trick Oriana, so something similar in English could work.
Hell, Tsuchimikado explains what the two words mean afterwards, so it could even be kept as "Tsukebumi Tamazusa" to maintain the Easternness of the name.
I felt it dragged a bit but ultimately liked it
>no bearing to the main plot
It has Lessar and her slut gang first preparing their plot for the English Civil War arc
The very start with the plane felt like it dragged on for too long, the terrorists should have come sooner.
After that everything was pretty great. It would be amazing if they ever got to animating it.
>Witches and knights fighting over the ocean
>Touma sword-surfing into a princess
>Agnese stomping on Knight balls
>Oriana drop-kicking Lessar out a building
>Touma carrying her to safety
>Ellis wrecking knight shit
It was a very eventful and fun arc, and I especially liked how many characters we got to see again.
Knight Leader and Acqua going full DMC with swinging giant swords while falling was pretty neat.
I want Sugitani voiced by Sugita
Well, they're both bald.
Do you remember that smile and optimism /a/?
>None of the girls could protect that smile
Basically half-dead, bleeding with each step stops Acqua and gives Amakusa time to "defeat" him. Then he does this again with Birdway.
Destroys controls for fucking flying fortress in order to crash into angel and punch it.
And he fucking survives arctic sea.
All this with the smile and hope that others will be happy.
This wouldn't have happened if Itsuwa was there. She did nothing wrong!
>Destroys controls for fucking flying fortress in order to crash into angel and punch it.
And he fucking survives arctic sea.
That was one hell of a way to go. Only needed TouMAN doing a guitar solo while falling over Misha.
>She did nothing wrong!
Except murdering her religious substitute pope in an underage drunken rage.
Oh god, why did I start looking through the Vol. 9-10 translations. There are mistakes everywhere.
We warned you. You might not want to look through the other volumes, either.
Serves him right for protecting their smiles.
I saw on the discussion page, you guys are going through the season 1 and 2 books right?
That would be nice. I had to skip reading volume 5 since I was developing brain cancer while trying to decipher the gibberish in chapter 3.
Which novels are Done by Js06?
You can see what chapters were done by what translator here
Volume 1 and 3 and then nothing til volume 12
You can see who did what here
There's one guy going over them who has asked me about Vol. 1 and 2 so far, but I think his main goal is to unify terminology and improve readability.
He doesn't know Japanese, so there's no way he can fix a lot of the things that ended up just plain wrong during the J->C->E process.
But they were done by Teh_Ping, he should have been using the japanese raws.
Are you sure it's the translation that's wrong or rather the edits by editors that messed it up?
PS: Index SSS chapter 6 scans are up on nyaa.
Ping didn't use Japanese raws at first. He initially used Chinese raws.
From what I know, Volumes 7-11 and 16 were translated from Chinese.
>he should have been using the japanese raws.
He wasn't. I've been around well before Teh_Ping started doing any Index shit and it was obvious he was using Chinese sources for the most part.
Obvious because メース in no way makes "iron rod" and other similar happenings.
We translated Vol. 16 month ago from english to russian. Translator Teh_Ping. And this is was fucking horrible. He's shitty translator, errors everywhere.
>Index SSS chapter 6 scans are up on nyaa.
Nice. That means I only have to scan volume 7's chapter. Still waiting on 6 due to SAL. CDJapan wanted to charge me 25 dollars extra for EMS shipping after including a 4koma anthology in the order and I was like fuck that. Ordering books from Japan is suffering.
I can't imagine J>C>E>R having good results.
Usually J>E doesn't even get good results, if you peek at the average BT LN.
E+J > R
>Ordering books from Japan is suffering.
It truly is.
2, 4, 5, and 6 also show some of the tell-tale signs of J->C->E.
Most minor terms (i.e. wouldn't be in the wiki) that have English furigana use a translation of the kanji and ignore the furigana. Also, terms originally given in English tend to use a different word in the translation.
No wonder that fight felt so awkward.
You're lucky js06 usually leaves the LN SFX things out. They almost always describe the SFX right after it anyway, so they're pointless. 'Vroom, the car roared,' and shit like that.
But yeah, Teh_Ping has a bad habit of using caps lock randomly, too.
Vol 15, Ch2, Pt3
>At first glance, you could tell she worked in some kind of underworld business, but, from what he had heard, she had gone undercover into Skill-Out’s headquarters.
I think it's error. Not Skill-Out it's Anti-Skill.
Yes, that should be Anti-Skill.
> “But by using various frequencies, they can be controlled much like controlling a radio controlled car with a TV remote. Normally, they are placed on microorganisms in the air and spread around that way.”
>radio controlled car with a TV remote.
Vol 15, Ch2, Lines
Maybe "with a" > "or"?
"With a" is correct.
jsbro, while you're answering stupid question, I have one for you as well. Is there a term for the "-…" cut-off grammatical mark that you use? I wanted to look into it, as I understand the different meanings of ending a sentence with an em dash or ellipsis, but not both.
And Googling grammar is fucking hard since Google ignores punctuation for the most part.
Sphinx is actually a very ancient magician who was cursed into a cat body for 5000 years.
Ghost general time.
How much would it cost to buy 2 of the newest LNs (one for scanning and another for personal use)? Let's assume shipping to Washington.
Depends on where you buy from and the shipping speed. You're really better off viewing the Buyfag thread, as they have a lot of guides and shit to go through.
My volume of NT9 cost about $10 from CDJapan and using SAL, which takes 2-3 weeks to deliver. EMS, which delivers in a couple days, costs almost double that.
However, there's no point in buying a copy of NT9 just to scan since scans will be coming out soonish.
Thanks for the info. I was mostly wondering for the future NTs.
>*1. 77,789 *77,789 Toaru Majutsu no Index: New Testament Vol.9
Ouch, NT9 is easily going to be the worst selling volume of New Testament.
It sold like shit because Kakine doesn't appear in this novel.
Once Kakine returns as a Majin Dark Matter God Super Saiyan 666 and kills Thomas and Othinus the sales will rocket.
Miki isn't going to take it well.
That's for Jan 6-12. NT9 released on the 10th with only 2 days on the market...
Also a good and direct comparison in sales could be done with NT7. The first tracking week for NT7 was March 6-12 and it sold almost 92K. Meanwhile the first tracking week for NT9 was January 6-12 and it only sold almost 78K.
NT7 did the same and sold ~92K and NT6 had one more day of sales and sold ~98K that's no excuse for those terrible sales.
And? nearly 78k is not terrible sales.
The nips must have stopped buying because they knew Misaka wasn't gonna have a big, if any role
Looks like the S3 will be coming sooner than expected.
>that's no excuse for those terrible sales.
Yes, they have.
1st week: 65 983
2nd week: 77 018
3rd week: 22 492
Just like with the GRS arc, right?
Which is why when numbers for the next 5 days are out, it'll have a much larger number.
Vol 21: 599円
1st week: 73 225
2nd week: 66 672
3rd week: 17 087
The reporting period for NT4 only went March 11.
That was before the tighter restrictions on releasing LNs early, the first week of sales was August 2-8, when the LN was officially released August 10.
I hope Touma turns into a cyborg
A gay black transgendered cyborg
Kamachi is cool and all but what really peeves me about his writing is the fact that he'll have a conversation between a few characters and he'll completely disregard any other present characters' interactions even as he transitions to the next scene.
You know, he probably does that because he doesn't feel said interactions are important enough to the situation at hand, and that's not really a Kamachi thing but something you'll find all over the place. I guarantee you as a fellow writer, in all of those instances he would have written something for everybody and then had to cut a ton of it out for the sake of the suggested word count (which he could ignore if he wanted to, but he'd have to deal with more expensive copies to try and sell) and for the sake of staying on track. He's gotten a lot better at staying on track and not waffling uselessly for pages on end, I've noticed.
There's no point to it outside of including it for excess and page count sake when you consider it in writing.
Illustrations are up on BT.
NT9 isn't, but yes, there are quite a lot of illustrations on BT.
>Nobody cares about the new Railgun OST
We already have it all didn't we?
There's a third one in the new BD.
As soon as you said not NT9 I lost interest.
What's with this one faggot making pointless changes to the latest HO translations? He's randomly replacing choice words with different choice words, and several of them are even worse.
Once someone has something interesting to talk about, we've milked NT9 spoilers as far as we can already, unless someone can get more interesting details about it from the Nips.
Until chapter TL's or illustrations are up it is pointless; otherwise, it will be dumb post after dumb post.
Wow, I just took a look and that's pretty bad. I'd say just revert his changes and request that he be blocked from editing if he takes issue with it.
Done. Gave him what essentially amounts to a warning on his talk page and I'll see about the blocking if it continues.
While on the topic, I couldn't help but think of the Object in part 12 as Accelerator with Fiamma's giant sword. Good to see the Martini girl finally showed up though; I was beginning to think she just got an illustration for her brief cameo in chapter 2.
>still no raws
What the fuck is happening?
Gives me time to catch on NT 1-8.
Well, there's raws for Amakusa SS part 6 if anybody still care for those.
>yfw NT9 receives the same treatment and takes 3 weeks to upload
Who was that guy who ordered NT9 here? pls pick EMS.
What do you guys want to talk about?
Only around a week until spoilers for Accelerator and Railgun but still no NT9 raws.
Where does js06 get his raws anyways? Does he buy the books or are there dedicated scan sites for the LNs?
I know there are a few good LN scan sites around, but I can't remember where they were. As far as I know they get uploaded to Nyaa pretty soon afterwards anyway.
>Wraith Martini Vermouthspray
Sometimes I wonder if Kamachi is trying to outdo himself on coming up with ridiculous names.
jsbro occasionally buys his novels; I recall him getting A Simple Survey when he did it, although it did get scanned much later.
And yes, there are dedicated novel sites. Aside from Nyaa, some of the faster ones are:
Of course, some novels do make it onto Share/Perfect Dark and not on those sites. You can also go to jcafe, which is an English forum-based community that uploads shit from these sites pretty quickly, but it's somewhat selective. The admin did compile a search engine for the well-known raw sites, so you can also just use that feature with a novel/manga name (in Moon or otherwise) to hopefully find it.
NT9 is going to be the new vol 13.
>NT9 selling badly
>still no raw for NT9
Othinus confirmed for killing Index
Still none? ;_; whats the longest drought we've had?
It is all part of Kamachi's keikaku, he killed kamikoto so misakafags would stop buying the novel thus lowering the sales enought to make Index III a reality
Before this, NT8 was the longest with raws not showing up until the 16th.
My copy shipped back on Monday and should arrive in a few weeks, but I sincerely hope we don't have to wait that long.
I hope so, too, jsbro but it's nice you got a copy coming just in case.
Is anyone willing or know someone who can help with translate the Index manga?
I know a some poeple don't care for the Index manga but since there not going be a season 3 any time soon and we have to wait for the mangas chapther to come out we might as well catch up on it/
Isn't already being translated (albeit slowly)?
I think the group's translator for Index quit/lost interest.
If any of you know how to edit the images I could provide a mediocre translation, as long as there isn't anyone competent enough.
We'll get a season 3 before the Index Manga catches up or our translations.
if you can go to Overload Scans can contact them they will give you what you need.
Nope, it's Touma. After being buried alive half eaten by his friends on a mountain. Or after being launched alone in space?
Thank god I know Japanese, this volume is fa-fa-fa-fabulous
How can it take so long? I live in Europe and got mine like 5 days later, simply ordering on amazon.co.jp
Amazon's expensive for single-item shipments. He just probably used CDJapan and chose one of the cheaper shipping options.
Have you never shopped around or something?
I bought NT6, 8 and 9 at the same time, and paid like 20 dollars for shipping (15 euros). It's not that expensive.
You mean that with NT9 alone I'd have paid much more?
Completely forgot they redid the prices recently. Is it your first time buying off Amazon Japan? They recently got a lot cheaper, so people still aren't used to it. Hell, the old shipping rate is still the first result on Google.
Let me give you an example. Their shipping rate used to be ￥2700 (base cost) + ￥300 per book. Now it's ￥800 (base cost) + ￥400 per book. That's a lot fucking better for smaller shipments, and really doesn't make a difference for huge shipments.

This changed like...two-to-three months ago, I believe. Still, it's $28 for two books that would cost roughly $12 if they could be bought in-store. Good deal considering it's an import, though.
Well, I knew that it was somehow fucked up, that's why I've always been using tenso.com. But I was doing that because of hearsay, I only used amazon Japan when I was in Japan.
But know I think everyone should give it a try, it's cheap, fast, and it doesn't go through other shitty postal companies unlike with tenso, at least here.
>>I only used amazon Japan when I was in Japan.
Is there a reason you didn't just go to a store? I hear they're everywhere and easily within walking distance. Or was it something to do with the free shipping inside Japan thing?
Well it depended on what I wanted to buy, and on my schedule, too. I was in Daikanyama, Ebisu (Shibuya).
And you can't find Gamecubes without going to Akiba, which is quite far away. I often went a bit everywhere in Tokyo, but when it's fucking hot and humid outside, you're happy to have a cheap (well, free) and fast (the same day, or 1 day later, and you can choose when the delivery guy comes) service.
Also, Japan != Tokyo, sometimes you're better off with online shopping. And everyone uses it.
>And you can't find Gamecubes without going to Akiba
samefag, but well, I think you can, it's just that I didn't bother to search for it.
Another day without raws.
Welp, it's been 10 days.
The HO7 translation is complete:
Awesome, thank you.
Shit Touma. Just like Fre/nda, you'll get your meme
And on the tenth day, Kamachi said, "Let there be scans," and there were scans. And Kamachi saw that it was good.
So here we are, 10 days after release, with likely the most hyped and probably the best Raildex novel yet, and still no raws, still no Index III announcement. Railgun manga still in Namek, and [spoiler]casual vento where?[/spolier]
Othinus wanted someone to understand her, but she destroyed that precious "understander". She had what she wanted for a few seconds. That's why she chose to go back to Touma's "original world".
I'll translate the last line of the Afterword. You know, The line.
>saa saa everyone. please watch the full power dere woven by the blond-and-blue-eyed goddess!
CAN'T WAIT FOR NT10
I don't believe you.
>guess what it is
I really hope something happens this month in Railgun. I'd be legitimately pissed if we just see Kuroko doing something while Mitori watches her and Misaki and Gensei still trying to defeat each other.
The pacing in Railgun has been awful recently.
I just hope it's not a twenty-two page chapter like last month.
Fuyukawa knows the manga is ending after this arc, so he's dragging it out.
Someone is posting NT9 raws at >>100611320
>Othinus is the first and only girl Kamachi calls deredere
OTP confirmed already.
>Kamachi never says the deredere is directed toward Touma
I hope you're ready for NTR.
>Othinus is deredere towards Kakine instead
Does anyone know where is the current 2chan Railgun manga spoilers thread?
The last one hit post limit month ago and since then I am unable to find the new one.
