Gentlemen. Tonight we discuss the following topic of utmost importance:
>How to protect Kamijou Touma's smile
Aaand of course I made the hilarious error of putting the topic in the name field. Go team.
Where did this whole protecting smile meme come from?
It's a generic line you hear some protagonists say.
>protecting that which has been lost forever
You don't protect Kamijou Touma's smile.
He protects your smile.
Give him some money.
Don't kill Othinus.
Just because it's lost doesn't mean we can't protect it.
For that matter, how do we protect Biri's smile?
Kill Kamijou's harem.
>Implying Othinus won't die in NT 10, mindbreaking Touma once again and driving him into the arms of Worst.
>Mikoto's three most common emotions are shock, rage and despair.
Speaking of bad things happening to Biri, do you guys think Misaki is going to undo what she did to Biri's friends at the end of this arc, or will Touma do it?
Touma never will smile again
He has the Sisters.
10032 will make him smile with her funny jokes.
>tries to go back to school
>has PTSD flashbacks of Komoe and Aogami murdering him
Any place to see the vol 9 scans?
You're so optimistic anon.
Mikoto is going to force Misaki.
I had forgotten that outfit
Meant to go here.
I can tell the scanlators and raw providers changed so easily now, damn.
You mean forced smile with ther unfunny jokes.
The ilustrations atleast?
In the archives somewhere.
They're quite good though.
OTP right there
Ch 53 is the sexiest face.
More like The No-Smiling Faction.
Will-san will bring smiles.
You guys know what I'm looking forward to? The MADs for NT9.
Nah, it's Ch 30.
>Gremlin looking all cool
>Mjolnir is just a tin can
You're both wrong, it's chapter 46.
My dick can't take this.
Post the whole thing!
All i've got is this crappy version, sorry anon.
>Still no one saying Ch35
You all have shit taste.
Why is Touma an angsty kid now?
Because Kamachi doesn't know how to express human compassion.
If you died 10031 times you would be too.
Because Othinus put him in a world where everyone is happy, but he's an outsider to that world. There's even a separate Touma there living the life that he should have lived. On top of that, Touma's very presence is degrading the world, since he's the reference point of the original world. As long as he's alive, the happiness can't be maintained.
I really need to read these LNs
All wrong, 25 is best face
That was just World 1.
Then there's the world where everyone close to him ate him, the one where he was trapped and starved to death, the one where he was framed and executed, etc.
Basically he's Archer now, except unlike Archer his suffering didn't actually accomplish anything.
So why did Othinus make him suffer?
You try being an amnesiac who is constantly used as a mindless weapon(even dropped out an airplane like a bomb), stabbed in your stomach as a child because people thought you were an omen, arm cut off what, 3 times? He got beat into a coma twice. He fell into the Arctic Ocean. He finally tried to turn it around and got shot for his trouble. And then everyone he knows gets obliterated and then he's put through To The Pain for like, thousands of years until he's a mindbroken puppet.
Mind of steel TouMAN next volume then?
To make him kill himself.
If Othinus kills Touma herself, then Imagine Breaker would probably just move on to the next host.
But if Touma commits suicide, then the likelihood of Imagine Breaker returning is greatly diminished.
Why does any woman suck the life out of her man?
Make him commit suicide.
She needed to get rid of IB before she made any long-term changes, and if she just killed him normally and left it like that IB could reform somewhere else. Only way to destroy it permanently is for Touma to kill himself.
Luckily Will-san is there for him and comforts him through it.
Truly a fate worse than death.
Touma's repeatedly shown that tragedy does nothing for him except make him kind.
I mean, look at the childhood he experienced. Shunned by his peers, hurt and beaten, ridiculed constantly. Yet for some reason, he's still able to spout these kinds of lines with a straight face.
When some people experience great tragedies in their lives, it makes them cynical. But there are also people who take the tragedies they experience and turn it into kindness. Because they understand how painful such tragedies are, and thus don't wish to spread it to others.
Pretty sure this has shaken him up a fair bit anon.
Did you see his eyes in the last illustration? Those aren't sane eyes.
He's fighting to protect the very person who put him through all that.
If that's not kindness then I don't know what is.
Eh, Touma's weird.
According to the spoilers he's doing it for "his own convenience." I doubt he thinks he's doing anything special.
I'm not sure how declaring war on the world is convenient, but i'm not Touman, what do I know?
I can see Touma having a Ned Flanders style meltdowner. Just replace "fukou da!" with "okily dokily!"
Well to be fair, pre-memory loss Touma (the one who remembers all that abuse) was ALOT more hesitant, and had a different personality. He wanted to be useful and become a hero with his power, while post-memory loss Touma doesn't give a shit.
I tried not to do that and I still did.
Use the logic Touma's been using to the start of the series. There is a helpless person right in front of him who's about to be killed. Thus he's decided to protect her.
Because to Touma, that's what convenience is. He's going to ignore all reasons NOT to protect and prioritize his own self-interests. And his self-interest is to protect the person that's right in front of him. That's all the reason he's ever needed to fight.
Remember what Touma said at the end of the Sisters arc. Remember the answer to Index's question.
>Index: "Hey Touma, so what did you end up fighting for this time?"
>Touma: "Hm? ...For myself."
Get it? Touma is doing the exact same thing he's always done: He's fighting for himself. He's not fighting for some sense of self-righteousness or lofty ideal. He's fighting simply because he doesn't want to see someone in front of him get onesidedly harmed. The reason his current situation is "convenient" for him is because he's blatantly ignoring all the reasons everyone else has to regard Othinus as an enemy and is instead prioritizing his own selfish desire of protecting the person right in front of him. The exact same thing he's always been doing since Vol.1.
Yeah, Touma was somebody but the post memory loss touma is just some...thing that is fucking insane, even if the person will kill millions of people, so long as the person is in harm way, Touma will defend them.
Even if it Hitler.
I don't think so. Touma's pretty pragmatic too. He's not gonna protect someone he regards as his enemy. Remember that terrorist in Vol.17? Despite the excruciating amount of pain that terrorist was in, all Touma really had to say to him was "hang in there".
I think the thing here is that Touma doesn't regard Othinus as his enemy anymore, and that's why he's willing to protect her.
And, frankly, it's not as if Othinus has done anything as atrocious as what Hitler did.
Not now, but she is the actual Odin.
The reason she gave up her powers in the first place apparently was because she caused massive amounts of death and destruction.
Course that didn't stop Touma from helping Accel.
Why won't you protect her smile?
When raws come out.
Touma helped Accelerator because he saw that he was trying to help. Touma sympathized with Accelerator's desire to protect Last Order. That's all.
You have to remember that Touma does not hold grudges. He's not judgmental and he won't shun a person for past sins. Touma only cares about the present. As long as Accelerator's trying to help right now, Touma isn't going to hold anything against him.
Touma also probably believes that the only ones who have any right to be angry at him are the Sisters and Mikoto.
Mikoto didn't seem all that surprised to see Accelerator in Hawaii, so Touma probably warned her.
Something along the lines of "Please don't freak out."
She was pretty damn disturbed when she saw him. There's clearly some trauma there.
She wasn't as freaked out as she should have been, but there was something there.
She knows that Accelerator knows her body inside and out.
...time to pick Index up again
...Maybe once this arc's over, Touma will finally get to have some time off.
I think this entire thread is focusing on the wrong things.
We need to talk more about how pretty 10032 is.
>Having something good happen to him
I don't think Kamachi knows how to write happiness anymore.
10031 is prettier.
>watch NT8 MAD
>people are commenting about NT9 instead of NT8
damn it the wait is killing me
10031 a slut. What do you think that purple thing sticking out of her was? Accel prolapsed her vajayjay
10032 is a pure virginal angel. She is the sweetest, kindest, most gentle Misaka, and has bigger boobs than Misaka.
>The arms and legs extending out from the short-sleeves and the skirt were torn up. It was most likely the same on her skin within her clothes that he could not see. Her school uniform had been dyed so red that its original colors could no longer be seen, but the clothes themselves were not torn at all.
>Her body seemed to have been torn apart from the inside along the paths of the blood vessels as if someone had passed narrow wires through all of them and then forcibly torn the wires out. Her torn-up arms were reminiscent of a diagram of a dissected frog. The torn-up girl had nothing that could actually be called a “face”. Instead, she had what looked like an open flower or a peeled boiled egg. It was a dark-red cavity with pink muscles and soft yellow fat inside.
>Upon seeing the red and purple scene before him, Kamijou took a step back. He must have started squeezing with his arms because the black cat started mewing like it could not breathe.
>Kamijou had seen a type of hell within the Misawa Cram School, but the corpses he had seen there had not had a “flesh-and-blood” feeling to them because they had either been encased in armor or transformed into melted gold.
>But this was different.
>He felt the urge to vomit as if he had stuck a finger down his throat. He screamed in his heart not to vomit. He used nice logic in thinking that he was looking at Misaka Imouto and he shouldn’t vomit upon seeing her, but then he suddenly noticed her skirt in the edge of his vision.
>Something was sticking out from within her skirt, from between her legs.
>The soft and squishy object with a pink surface and a hint of purple was…
>In that instant, Kamijou could no longer hold back and his body doubled over. A sour flavor filled his mouth and then the contents of his stomach shot from his mouth.
Kamachi can be gross sometimes.
Not as bad as his other series at least...
This is officially the longest we've had to wait for raws for any of the NT novels.
NT8 was previously the longest with raws uploaded on the 16th, but we've passed that for NT9.
It's honestly a wonder Touma doesn't shudder everytime he sees Mikoto or one of her sisters.
That's really fucked up.
Well he did try to kill himself, but Overnet, in 10031's body, stopped him and let him release his anger (he ranted for 4 pages basically saying He Never Asked For This.)
10032 isn't pure.
I don't think she'll need to force her, since Misaki is pretty much fed up with Gensei's bullshit now. If anything, Misaki is a pragmatist.
I NEED TO FUCKING READ THIS BOOK
What if Crowley had a way to use imagine breaker to destroy all non-esper powers in the world, and it would also get rid of imagine breaker in the process? Is that something Touma would willingly go along with?
Touma is the answer.
Just because he needs to meet Uiharu eventually.
WHAT IF TOUMA WORE UIHARU?
Earlier in the series maybe, but at this point he's way too fed up with being used, he wouldn't go along with that.
He doesn't even really trust people anymore, he just kind of goes along expecting them to betray him at some point.
Then Saten would flip his skirt
Manifesting Kazakiri (and probably Aiwass) fills that role already, he just needs to scale it up.
What would happen if TouMan took Uiharu off of spare body and wore her, how fucking hard is that to understand?
LOL UIHARU IS FLOWERS JOKE
I don't know...
>>How to protect Kamijou Touma's smile
cum on it.
this show has always been about girls love
Pfft. Just realized.
The Sisters (and Mikoto) have an AB blood type. Culturally Japs with AB blood type are supposed to have a...split personality.
Why do yurifags have such concentrated shit taste?
Why the fuck can't anyone protect this one boy's smile?! Why is everyone in this series so fucking useless?!
Will-san did protect his smile anon!
...Well. She kept him from killing himself. Which is kind of like doing that.
I mean seriously, can one of the Misakas just suck this nigger's dick already?
No Japan, why did you make 10032 a slut ;_;
Protecting his ability to smile?
Japan makes everyone a slut.
Accept it. It is the way of life.
But 10032 is too pure, too good for that world.
HE DIDN'T EVEN GIVE HER A RING
>Touma is about 5 months old
>10032 is about 5 months old
OTP is obvious.
Anyway, since Touma's obviously not gonna punch Othinus, I demand that someone else does.
Maybe the Will.
Touma is not longer 5 months old, anon.
Don't worry, someone will kill Othinus.
She's setting off all the death flags that exist.
neither is 10032
Now when are we going to get real with this shit and see Touma punch a pregnant woman?
Didn't do shit at all at the end anon.
That's the will of the network using that body.
Freyja is the one that needs her illusion's broken anon, not her mom.
Touma's going to have to reach deep. Real deep.
That's just his serious face. I don't see where you people are getting all this "he's clearly broken" crap from. Sounds to me like you're just seeing what you want to see.
The face of a man who has died 10031 times.
What is with that 50s movie poster posing?
Hey, if the Sisters can handle it, don't see why he can't.
That's standard posing for Haimura.
Girls will usually have one arm out to the side, while guys will have one or both hands kind of half-clenched.
Well damn.I might have to drop the LN and just go for the manga if the art's this good.
That's only Railgun, the LN is completely different parts and perspective.
That's the Railgun manga. Railgun's a side story to Index. They're two separate things.
Gotta love the Haimura Biri as well though.
Why is she so much uglier than 10032? They are supposed to be clones of the original, but 10032 looks like a goddess and Misaka original looks like she has Down's syndrome.
...What are you basing this off of, exactly?
The LN duhh. I clear says again and again the Misaka Imouto are clones of the original.
What are you some kind of retard?
No I mean why do you think Mikoto's uglier? The only difference between them is that the clones have the eyes of a dead fish and lifeless facial expressions.
How many clones did Accelerator fuck?
None because he's impotent.
Kamachi's stated that Accelerator has no interest in that sort of thing.
Silly anon. Accel doesn't have a penis.
That hormone imbalance is harsh.
My sentiment exactly.
Accelerator wasn't born an Esper. If he was born with a penis, there's no reason he wouldn't have one now.
No, the issue is that he can't actually get it up for anything. Accelerator doesn't have any sort of sexuality. A girl could poledance nude in front of him and he wouldn't give a shit.
Accelerator is a dude?
He's had his powers since he was like five though, it can't have developed well.
“What in the world do you mean by that? Speaking of which, it's not a good thing to have powers that are too strong. The outside influence is too little, it seems to cause a loss of balance in the hormones, causing me to have this androgynous appearance.”
“So are you a guy or a girl? asks Misaka as Misaka tries to uncover the truth.”
“Can't you tell?”
Having an androgynous appearance doesn't mean you don't have a penis.
Look at the official art from the LNs. 10032 is frankly stunning. She has the face of an unspoiled angel mixed with a devil may care glint in her eye.
Misaka literally looks like she has down's syndrome.
Look at >>100402179 and tell me if you didn't already know the character that you would think she could count to potato.
Haimura's early designs were all rather strange though.
I want to leave Accelerator and Gunha alone in a room and see what happens.
I can't decide which Touma is my favorite.
20-21 is kind of funny. 20 is basically "Huh, what's this?" By 21 he's just "Oh god, go the fuck away."
>Reminder that this is going to bite Biri in the ass if she ever enrolls in Touma's school
What the fuck. I am on volume 13. Does something happen to Sphinx? Cause that isn't Sphinx in the NT picture.
What? No. Sphinx is a constant. He's the only one who truly understands Touma...
Sphinx was with Washing Machine for a bit when Index was in England so his colors faded a bit.
I think you could stick all of the 5s (except for Kakine) in a room without any major issues. They'd just sit around awkwardly listening to Gunha talk about guts while trying to escape.
Pick NT6 and NT8 just for the awesome sweater jacket combo he's wearing.
Oh thank god.
I don't know why but for some reason when I saw that pic I got really concerned for him. He is just a character in a, let's face it, poorly written pulp fiction story. Not even a human one with lines, but an animal.
for some reason though I actually panicked when I though something bad might have happened to him. I haven't been this attached to a fictional cat since Petronius the Arbiter.
NT 6 Touma is pretty swag for wearing clothes he found in a dumpster.
Push Touma into there and then watch it unfold.
That phrase does not mean what you think it means.
NT6 Touma is also the only Touma that is smiling. He is now my favorite Touma.
I would watch a show based on all of the level 5's living in the same house (with occasional house guests like Touma and Tsuchimikado appearing every so often).
As long as no one is attacking anyone, even then no one would need protecting and things would still be kinda chill.
The #6 is creepy and lives in the attic, and occasionally will send down notes and such.
Nah. You've got Mikoto and Misaki in there with him, that'll spiral out of control fast.
And Mugino will be sitting there making snide comments more than likely.
I want to see Biri try to convince Touma to come to her room for some inane reason.
It means exactly what I think it mean. Pulp fiction refers to cheap melodramatic stories that are written on cheap(pulp) paper for mass production.
LN use really cheap paper.
Pulp fiction is supposed to go into a magazine.
If you're looking for an american counterpart, dime novels fit better.
He's a genetic deformity.
Pulp Magazines are the exact term you are looking for. Dime Novels are classified as a form of pulp fiction.The term pulp derives from the cheap wood pulp paper on which they were printed. LN can be printed on anything from high-end acid-free paper(glossies) to only a grade or two above newspaper(pulps).
Ehh, dime novels were like a hundred pages though, while Index is generally 300-400. Most LNs aren't that long though.
LNs kind of evolved from pulp magazine stories, but aren't in magazines themselves. Guess you could call them the bastard child of pulp fiction and dime novels maybe.
Why is he protecting the bitch that killed him 1031 times?
Also he's Touma. It'd be weird if he didn't.
Because he pities her and doesn't want to see someone die right in front of him.
Because she's hot as fuck
He is M. At this point he probably orgasms every time he dies.
She gets called out on looking like a old lady gossiping. Starts losing her shit. Then have Accelerator acting tsundere around Touma.
>Biri trying to sex the Touma in her room
That's about as likely as Touma sprouting wings and flying.
She'd just sit on her bed and stutter and eventually pass out into an electric coma.
Touma would leave halfway.
So next volume she is going to go dere for him because he decides to protect her or something?
Probably partly that. Other part is she wanted all that power to stop Crowley and she trusts Touma to do that for her now.
More like he has her and about to be happy with her and she dies when someone kills her which breaks the TouMAN fully into a wreck and purely fueled on revenge also suicidal tendency.
>Bersi was basically a revenge-driven Touma
>Bersi joined Gremlin to get his revenge
>Gremlin is coming to save Othinus now according to spoilers
>Touma will join them
Here's a prompt for you guys.
One of the girls, any of them, works up the nerve to confess to Touma outright. And Touma understands that they're going out.
How does the first date go?
Apparently the afterword mentions deredere Othinus and Will becoming the new heroines. Could be serious, a joke, or lubing us up for the suffering to come.
Touma is poor as shit for one thing, so that'll be rough.
Nah Will said she would stay beside his side if he became the enemy of the world. So it came to be at the end.
Bibibiri will be a bitch like normal and probably try to murder him
10032 is probably the only one who is straightforward enough to do it.
Awkward conversation, misunderstandings abound, violence towards Touma over said misunderstanding, Touma does something stupid, 10032 sees it as heroic and endearing, shy as fuck first kiss, ever other girl in the entire series appears out of nowhere and murders the T.
It's generally best not to take anything Kamachi says in the Afterward at face value. Half of what he says in those are a joke. The other half have hidden meanings.
>Implying Will-San won't possess her and NTR her with Touma in her own body
Though I guess it doesn't really count as NTR when Will is technically 10032 as well.
He'll probably encounter one of the other girls in his harem, making his date jealous. Which will end in a lot of fukoda for Touma.
SS Touma is mad as fuck. That was during the fight with Hamazura right?
Indeed, and who wouldn't be pissed at some fuckface who's trying to justify murdering an innocent woman as him fighting against The Man, and powerful espers
Welcome to the 70's
When will Touya cheat on his wife with Misuzu?
>Cheating on his wife
Have you seen how that man acts with his wife?
You'd think he was a newlywed with how lovey dovey he is, also even Misuzu admitted defeat against Shiina's ability to stay young and beautiful
>Touya says that Touma resembles his mom
Them Tokiwadai bitches must've been blind, well that or they don't like spiky hair
When will we see Touma in a skirt?
The day Thor is about to rape him.
Reminds me of that bitch from Bleach.
Look at this faggot, he reads bleach.
Laugh at the leper children.
Oh shit I didn't even notice the was a big of streak of snot cum on the back of my hand til just now.
If Touma were to actually die, would IB just respawn in another person (either the next birth/body hop)? Or would it just regen him as per his arm in WW3.
>big of streak of snot cum on the back of my hand til just now
According to spoilers, it'd just respawn into another person.
It only regens as long as Touma is alive apparently.
Stop masturbating Touma!
When your cum is extra thick and has the consistency of snot.
I was jerking off to a non nude pic of Ishihara from Samumenco and after I came my tissue felt weirdly dry but I didn't think anything of it. Evidently I blew most of my load on the back of my hand, and I didn't notice til I was typing that post. I like to keep /a/ informed of things like this and when I shit my pants that one time.
It amuses me when I tell anon these things and he either ignores me or doesn't believe me. I have given up on life so hard that I don't even care about myself anymore.
Keep doing it anon. Your unfortunate events are pretty amusing.
Looks like you're not living your life correctly
>reading some of this thread
I spoiled myself a bit but it really made me want to get back into it.
What volume of the LN should I start if I only watched the first season of the anime and no sidestories or OVAs if any.
Or should I just start from the beginning.
Start from the beginning. You'll gain more insight in each character and event. The anime and manga both skim over or completely ignore major parts present in the LNs. Volume 2 is a great example of this.
Do you think he'd ever smile again?
Beginning works best, since Angel Fall and Deep Blood were both heavily butchered.
If you're lazy, it's still complicated because the first episodes of season 2 actually takes place before the last arc of season 1. You'd need to read the last part of volume 5, then skip 6 and read 7.
But yeah, just start from the beginning. Volume 2 really highlights the differences in New Touma, which the anime doesn't.
Why is Othinus such a cunt?
No I am not. Life isn't as simple as a LN. There is no magic choker I can wear and a network of little sisters for me. All I have is these stories which are nothing more than meaningless sefl gratification.
So you're Stiyl?
She's the actual Odin. Read up on some Norse Mythology, guy was a dick.
Touma wants that cunt
Damn straight he does.
Start from Volume 15.
Anime ends around that point.
Or do you seriously want to read 3000 pages of stuff you've mostly seen?
Hold the fuck up.
Saints are Saints because they have body similar to Jesus.
We've only seen one male Saint and he has special shit working for him. The rest are all girls.
W-was Jesus a girl?
If he'd watched the second season he'd need to start at 14.
He's only watched the first season though.
No he was a dude.
Othinus > Will-tan > *
Do you not understand "Son of God"?
Yeah, and Odin is also known as the fucking Allfather.
Maybe Jesus WANTED to be a little girl
You got me there. I did not think this argument through at all.
>implying that god's can't genederbend themselves at will
Odin probably decided to try it out after getting that sweet steed from Loki
The primary trait that Saints have in common with the Son of God is the "Stigma". This Stigma is essentially what grants Saints their power. They don't necessarily have to be identical to Jesus as long as they have that Stigma.
Is Touma and Othinus the OTP?
TouMAN and Biribiri OTP forever.
The only OTP in Raildex is Accelerator and shirts with edgy designs.
Still no scans, huh? Not even images?
Maybe the usual sources are having a hard time getting their hands on copies. I hear NT9's been selling extremely well.
Maybe Japan is conspiring to keep it from us. Is someone in the general willing to buy a copy and bust its spine for great justice?
Will-tan > Biribiri
I ordered it, but I don't want to scan it.
And because the rule is
Othinus > Will-tan > *
Othinus is better than BiriBiri
I remember some guys complaining that NT9's first week sales were lower than the usual for NT, did the nips interest for it suddenly spike?
Not in this universe.
According to 2chan, that's the best girl order, and once NT9 gets Tl'd it will pass over to us as well/
Haven't looked in one of the threads in quite some time, so who the fuck is Will-tan?
Will of the Misaka Network, she first showed up in NT6 to tell Accelerator to stop being an edgy faggot, she finally reappeared in NT9
Will of the Misaka network, think it as a over mind of the Clone network it has 100% control over every clone including Worst and LO.
Well from what I can tell, it doesn't really compare to the sales SAO's latest volume got in its first week.
Still, 77,789 sales in its first week isn't too shabby.
She has a massive girlboner for Touma I'm guessing?
I don't give a fuck about nips shit taste.
Ah, ok. Thanks.
I was wondering how I missed a chick named Will or if you fags made the #6 want Touma or some shit and named her Will.
They have good taste in Index women.
All the Misakas do, well except for LO and WORST with the former preferring to take care of Accelerator, and the latter feeling he's dangerous
She's the will of the network so of course. She even states in her short appearance in NT6 that she would rather make a pass at Touma than Accelerator.
Itsuwa - Lessar - Birdway - Misaki - now it's Othinus. This shit piss me off.
>Itsuwa - Lessar - Birdway - Misaki - now it's Othinus
All best girls at their time. i see no issues here at all.
Man, Itsuwa was never particularly popular. Nor was Lessar for that matter, sadly. And Birdway's not exactly swimming in popularity either.
I suppose not having any anime appearances can be an issue.
>waaah no one like mikoto
What went wrong.
Touma possessing IB, that is what is wrong.
Wait no, actually, Itsuwa WAS pretty popular for a brief period.
She's completely fallen off the radar in the past few years, though.
Still, no other female characters in the series have been able to touch Mikoto's popularity. She's managed to get First Place Female Character three years in a row now.
Index is consistently the second-most popular female character from the series.
Too bad Othinus won't gut Mikobitch with Gungnir
Try five years, and she won Best Overall Character for 2013. It's kind of crazy.
It really helps that Mikoto and Index have anime that showcases them and the other girls do not, nor have many appearances.
Alot of people don't even know most of the girls in the series.
Touma, meanwhile, is pretty much the eternal second placer, always ranked behind Kirito.
>MFW best girl Carissa will never have good fanart
>Kono Light Novel ga Sugoi
>nips read LN's
>don't even know most of the girls in the series
Kirito lost already this time, Hachiman was the King of 2013, with Touma behind him.
Depending on how the later NT novels go he might get first after all of 9's suffering
Both Touma and Accelerator beat Kirito back in 2011. It was Touma 1st, Accel 2nd, Kirito 3rd.
It's more about who's face is out there more anon. Mikoto and Index are the poster girls, of course they are going to be the most popular.
Oh, what, really?
I just assumed SAO's been dominating like usual.
You know, if Index III ever gets made, I'd imagine his popularity would skyrocket a fair amount. Most of Touma's best scenes occur in the post-SS1 volumes.
Nah, SAO didn't do so hot this year. Only got 5th place.
JC Staff will end up butchering all of Touma's thinking scenes again, and animeonlyfags will start bitching about his plot armor, and how Magic sucks and bluh bluh bluh
I suppose it's rather impressive that Index's standing has managed to remain so solid for all this time. It's got a pretty strong hold on its position there.
>JC Staff will end up butchering all of Touma's thinking scenes
We aren't getting another season for a while apparently.
Nevermind the thinking scenes. Those aren't as important.
The scene where he escapes from the hospital and meets Mikoto while on his way towards confronting Acqua was fairly powerful and is sure to leave impressions.
The scene where he defeats a terrorist by throwing scalding hot coffee on him is also likely to stand out.
And getting shot like a missile by Acqua shouldn't exactly hurt either.
It won Best LN of 10 Years this year. Seems pretty steady yeah.
Is that really so impressive? What was its competition?
I mean, most light novels don't exactly make it that long in the first place.
>thinking scenes aren't important
In this context, they're not.
"Thinking scenes" aren't gonna raise a character's popularity at all. It's their spoken words and actions that matter the most.
Index lives with Touma and Mikoto lives in the same city as Touma. Add to the fact that both are part of the main supporting cast. Girls like Itsuwa can never become the focus of the story unless she gives up her magic and enrolls in AC like Motoharu did. Just living in AC gives an enormous advantage to any character when it comes to overall popularity among the readers. Just look at Misaki. No one would give two shits about her if she lived in England. However, since she lives in AC and goes to school with Mikoto, the audience is assured she will be a semi-regular fixture in the series.
Maybe you don't know anything more?
It's so easy to get you fags to expose your true colors. Stay mad, for it is an endless source of amusement.
...Doesn't do a thing for Kuroko, though.
Anyway, that's not nearly as important as personality, words and actions. Tsuchimikado received a massive boost in popularity as a result of NT7, despite the fact that he hasn't had any other notable appearances since Vol.19.
I thought everyone liked Tsuchimikado
They did, he just got much more popular.
He got 30th most popular male character this year. Which seems low, until you consider he's a relatively minor character and there are alot of male LN characters.
Mikoto would get a huge boost if she died
He's reasonably well-liked, but he actually made it into the top 30 in this year's "Most Popular Male Characters" poll. That's quite an achievement for someone who's had nearly no real appearances in the last, what, four years?
The novels fanbase would get cut in half as well though
Writer catering to the fans, this needs to stop.
I wonder if NT9 were released sooner, it might have affected Touma's rankings.
From what I can tell, the scene with Will-tan left a strong impression on readers. Those kinds of scenes are generally what contribute the most to a character's standing.
If he wouldn't do that we also wouldn't have had accelerator as a major character.
Why is there no Tsuchimikado family illustration for NT9
I mean, fuck's sake Haimura
You can't show porn in a Christian LN, man
I'm pretty sure Accelerator would have become a major character either way.
He's the #1 Level 5. You can't just introduce a character like that and then drop him forever after one volume. He's too important to the story's lore.
Mikoto is one of Kamachi's favorite characters anyways.
He's said she's the easier character to write since he can fit her into most situations.
And if you read the afterwords alot of them end with him moaning about not being able to put in more Mikoto.
What happened to him?
I haven't read the LN.
It was posted earlier in the thread.
Despair, absolute, crushing despair
Misaka network is better than the real thing, so I approve
Hasn't this always been the case?
Well, Mikoto is a raging cunt, so I suppose
Please, fuck off.
How is the Touman Bowl´s table right now?
Covered in tears and regrets.
As someone who is reading index for the romantic harem comedy, will this show ever get more light hearted and focus more on touma? Just read NT 4 recently (skipped 1-3), and everything is just gory, slightly disgusting and nonstop characters shifting.
Plus very little touma
This series will be better if it would become a SoL harem comedy
NT 7 is pretty light hearted.
But it's all a LIE.
Also trust none of the characters, everyone is a dick, and most of the exposition is usually wrong or lies.
>Reading Index for romantic harem comedy
People do that?
And you skipped NT2 which is filled with light hearted-ness
NT4 is a bit different than the rest
NT5 has a bit more SOL but then everything everything goes to hell
NT 3 had a fair bit as well. Delicious Worst trolling.
NT 2 was where you were supposed to get your SOL fix before Kamachi started in on some Plot.
Also I have no clue how NT 4 makes sense to you if you skipped NT 3.
El Presidente was the highlight of NT3, though Umidori being trolled over and over again was good
The fastest way to protecting Kamijou Toumas smile and happiness most certainly includes living our lives correctly. Failure to do so may cause us to find ourselves on the wrong end of extended fist followed by a stern lecture.
I know I'm probably alone when I say this but I want Index to be relevant again, I actually like her character, and hope she wins the TouMAN.
I disagree, but that's okay. Your ship is fine anon.
>"Should I masturbate?"
The city must lose power everytime Mikoto is alone and thinks about Touma.
NT4 is ...special.
Also it won't make any sense if you skip NT 1-3.
If you want comedy, NT2 and NT3 have plenty of it.
NT4 takes a turn for the weird, which kinda fits with the plot in the novel, but it is not the place to look for romantic comedy. It does show the brutality of the fighting parties. And that a battle between two illusionists is fucking stupid.
NT8 also has its fair share of comedy at the start. But overall the New Testament series has the characters be a bit more serious
I thought it was hilarious. The illusionists get caught up in some infinite loop of illusions trying to sneak up on the other one and kill them.
We come back a couple chapters later and they're lying on the ground dead or comatose or something.
It is indeed hilarious. But in the tactical sense, it's stupid as fuck. which makes it so hilarious.
I do too, I'm waiting for Laura to be relevant since Index is almost certain to have scenes once that woman's keikaku is revealed
Jesus Christ, that's disguisting.
I'd want to imagine how /a/ would reaction if this wasn't censor in the Anime.
You think that's bad?
>The gold saw left the wall and arced complicatedly through the air, chopping the multiple soldiers to pieces as they stood in place.
>But immediately afterwards, their bodies were whole once more. None of them had bled a drop of blood this time.
>“Hmm? You should take a good look at your arms and legs.” Marian grabbed the saw that had returned to her via the wall, spun it around a few times, and then >pointed at the soldiers with its deadly tip. “Doesn’t it look like they’ve been forcibly stuck together? It’s like pieces from multiple jigsaw puzzles have been mixed >together.”
>“Oh, and I never performed any compatibility tests, so if you don’t hurry, a transplant rejection is probably going to start. If you don’t want to die, you’ll need to get your own parts back.”
>It was unclear if they really intended to attack their fellow soldiers, but those around them reacted.
>The unharmed soldiers who had been swallowed up by the bizarre atmosphere decided the others were going to attack, so they treated them like enemies and shot them.
>“What a tragedy,” muttered Marian Slingeneyer quietly.
>In the time their attention had been drawn away due to fear, she had approached much closer to the surviving soldiers.
>That was when an assassin hiding among the collapsed bodies shot at her at close range with a handgun.
>However, Marian swung her golden saw without even looking over.
>Immediately afterwards, both the assassin’s hands disappeared.
>They had not been severed.
>Instead, everything beyond his two wrists had been turned into a single golden faucet. This put him in a similar situation to having his hands cuffed and the components making it up were nothing more than his normal arms and a normal faucet. However, the scene they created together was simply too grotesque.
>Her Dvergr techniques went beyond the realm of surgery and actually functioned as combat techniques.
>As the assassin stared blankly at his changed hands, Marian Slingeneyer patted him on the shoulder.
>“Good try.” She grinned. “But accomplishing nothing still gets you 0 points. Too bad.”
>Without hesitation, she turned on the faucet.
>With the sound of flowing liquid, the dark red liquid that gave him life easily poured out.
>“With both your hands turned into a single faucet, you can’t even turn it off. Now, how much blood loss is lethal to humans again? Well, I’m sure a bucketful is enough...hm? He’s already unconscious?”
>The assassin convulsed as he sank into the pool of his own blood.
I fucking love Marian, and I can't wait to see how Touma will react when the two are forced to fight together to save Othinus
I "skipped" them because I was getting very bored with NT. Read parts of vol 1 and vol 2 and it was snoozefest.
I only recently picked it up due to recent spoilers, and some anon recommended me to start with vol 4.
I was able to connect the dots. I don't feel that I miss much plotwise starting from vol 4.
Welp, might as well go for NT5 and 6 then since it starts out lighthearted and funny, until shit gets real, sort of like Vento Invasion arc
2 is a snooze fest because it's basically Birdway just giving exposition, but I had no problems with 1
Do they ever ease up on the character shifts? There is a ton of characters in NT4 and the point of view were changing constantly all over the place. It was borderline chrome shell regios vol 16+ level of annoyance (battle ends in a cliff hanger, doesn't get re-visited or resolved 2 or 3 vols later)
That being said, I might as well keep going. Got to prepare for vol 9 when it gets translated.
Probably because I really don't give a fuck about Shiage and ITEMS.
Reading it was a drag
There are quite a few shifts, though unlike NT4 which used a cast which were mostly introduced only in that novel, they swap around from Touma to Accelerator, some Hamazura, LO and Fremea, etc.
>All thi Mikoto hate and trolling
Have Clonefags always been this obnoxious and transparent?
The clones and it's offshoots long since surpassed the original, deal with it.
I don't think so.
The clones honestly speaking, are inferior to the original in every aspect.
You don't read LN's. Please, try again.
>He doesn't agree with my opinion
>I think my opinion is always right
>Let's say he doesn't read the source material, because he must not read the source material if he thinks my opinion is wrong.
Like i said, Try again.
>arguing over personal opinions
Just Stop before you make yourselves look stupid.
Mikoto beats a clone any day when it comes to personality. And I know you're thinking that being violent automatically makes one's personality shit, but the clones can be just as violent as the original.
>You don’t need a good reason to save a friend. If you want to save them, then save them. …I know someone who kept saying those stupid things even when he was driven to the brink of death, and he really did save over 10,000 people in the end. And that idiot that saved so many people is trying to save someone today like always. I know I can’t stop him. No matter how much I don’t want him to do anything dangerous, seeing him off with a push to the back is the sign of a good woman!
No, it's easy. You assreader.
Touma deserves someone sweet like Itsuwa.
>In prison for murder
He has a fist, he can do it on his own.
Meanwhile Touma is being spammed by Misaka
How does one pull the touMAN haircut?
He saw it in a magazine and gels it.
Nothing there to protect anymore. This was it and now it's gone.
Itsuwa did nothing wrong!
>Murdering her leader just for the amusement of bloodthirsty nuns
Her punishment is just
She did it to save the honor of the Amakusa. If he had lived they would all be disgraced.
He chose this path, they could have just had the sword fight like they were planning to, but he chose to try catching the blade.
Doesn't going to jail in England just mean that Necessarius is going to hire you at some point?
>money for hair styling products
Heh, good one. Maybe if he improvises and uses him cum as styling gel.
Not necessarily, Biagio and Lidvia haven't been hired, though Biagio's a crazy asshole, and Lidvia's well...she's just really fucking crazy, even if she is a good gal
He bought it in bulk before the memory loss.
One day he is going to run out though, he will have to choose between Index and his spiky hair.
An image change won't hurt him, unlike letting Index starve
Throwing the headcrab out is the only way. A man like the touMAN needs his Tigi.
>yfw you discover that if the TouMAN lost his hair gel, he would look like this
Touma needs to impregnate Itsuwa already
It's still pretty crazy even without the gel.
reminds me of my own hair
She tasted the tentacles, there is no way a normal man can satisfy her now
She would let him too.
All he has to do is fucking ask. He probably would have already if it wasn't for that cockblocking whore Index.
>Implying Touma wants to breed
He has way too little cash for that shit, and he's not the kind of guy who'd shove the responsibility to someone else (his parents)
Sakura? what are you doing? go back to your worm pool
Itsuwa probably will not have another golden oportunity like that to win the T.
i'm surprised there aren't more itsuwa fags around.
There are not so many of us
There are just too many great girls in the series for me to put her in first, even in her own group she's out shined by Kanzaki
Kamachi really likes his blonde girls.
I see what you did there.
There are 2 things that don't belong there
Also, Magical Powered Kanamin spin off when?
I really love angel Kazakiri's eyes.
Too bad we will never see it animated.
Yes, what about her?
>Kanzaki + Kamijou
>神裂 + 上条
>La Persona superiore a Dio
Greater than god tier OTP confirmed.
Bitches don't be knowin' 'bout ma 2nd power, hair style breaker.
>Kanzaki’s slender fingers moved underneath Kamijou’s armpits, chest and other areas slowly. Though Kanzaki gave an icy impression, her fingers were unexpectedly warm. Facing this predicament, Kamijou started to sweat profusely. The sweat-stained fingers of Kanzaki felt like someone licking Kamijou’s body with their tongue.
>Kanzaki moving fingers suddenly stopped.
>She silently looked down.
>Kamijou Touma’s beach pants.
>That’s right. Since Kamijou Touma was a healthy high school student, there was a reaction to Kanzaki Kaori’s reckless palpation, and the center of that reaction was hidden inside the center of the beach pants.
>Like a stone statue, she remained silent for a while, and finally said, “…You’re right. If we’re to start checking, we have to be thorough, even inside the pants.”
>> not 1 and 3
Reminider that Itsuwa is the only one to ever save Touma's life
Reminder, you're biggest assreader in the universe.
Yeah, that wet towel sure was use-
No she isn't
Mikoto kept him from falling off a speeding train in NT8.
I'm pretty sure he would have died if she wasn't there.
Also Birdway was the one who kept him from bleeding out after Anti-Skill shot him.
Touma getting saved by his friends is a common trend.
In fact is quite the opposite,sadly it seems that his luck is worse when she is around
MIkoto also saved him during the Fake Date, the falling pole in the Daihaiseisai game, Hound Dogs, Hawaii, and Birdway's gun.
Sisters Arc, WW3?
Mikoto save TouMAN's life, more than 10 incidents.
mikoto tried to murder touma as many times as she saved him
This idiot again.
it's true though
mikoto used deadly force against him multiple times. that is a fact.
She only really tried to murder him twice, once it didn't work because she was unconsciously holding back, the other Touma won by way of holding hands
His mother would probably love that her son gave her a grand kid.
>Decided to look at Index's Tvtropes Character page for shits and giggles
>See Freyja's character page
I have to wonder if these people even read the damn novel with those misinterpretations
What deadly force?
Of course she would, Touma's parents are awesome, but he's all about taking responsibility for his actions, so he wouldn't be willing to just shove the caretaking to his parents
Wasn't there going to be an index phone game
I tried reading them but they gave me eye cancer. I didn't even make it that far.
>Arch Enemy: Kakine and Mugino
Seriously? Not even a mention of Accelerator?
Yeah. It has something to do with Touma seducing girls to give him pictures of them in the bath. At least that's the impression the images gave me.
Nice try, 10032. But you're not fooling me.
You were using his right hand, thus reading his vital signs using electricity would be impossible.
You are clearly lying to score some extra Touma points.
If only the others would use such calculated moves.
hows the psp game on an emulator? I saw it on animebytes.
>You were using his right hand, thus reading his vital signs using electricity would be impossible.
Well, maybe there is some convenient exception when IB is touching breasts? You'll never know unless you try.
Whoa what the hell?
It's from angel fall. Kanzaki rapes him anally.
Breasts are so magic the IB doesn't work on them?
Truly the miracle of the universe.
Othinus is the Magic God because of the absolute perfectness of her breasts
I don't blame him.
Holy shit, I was hoping for new Othinus art. That is fucking amazing.
If anyone can bring back Touma's smile, it's Othinus
Where have you been? It's been reposted in every thread for the last days.
She destroyed his smile.
Looking a bit pregnant there Kanzaki.
What's up with Kanzaki's belly
Fcuk, for a moment I thought the raws were out.
Fuck you and your thumbnail.
Is it the reason for Touma's depression?
I just jacked off to Biribiri getting NTR'd by Misaki x Touma.
Am i a horrible person?
Touma could use a hug.
There's one with NTR? All the ones I read turned into threesomes.
You'll never see Stiyl this happy again.
It's okay though. It's not like he deserves to be, anyway.
Link the best one.
Stiyl did nothing wrong except trying to kill Touma like three times
Characters I love being mindbroken and then crying is my fetish.
Those are the best one, nyah!
Anyone who tries to kill the touMAN doesn't deserve to live.
Except Biribiri. She needs to bear his children.
Well fuck half the cast should die then
So let's see
Stiyl, Pendex, Aureolous, Accelerator, Etzali, Sherry, Agnese, Oriana, Biagio, Vento, Hamazura, Terra, quite a bit of Avignon, Acqua, Carissa, the Knights, Fianma, Umidori, the entirety of GREMLIM and Rensa
Am I missing anyone?
I haven't been paying much attention until the scans come out.
Yes, that's right. They all have a special place in hell.
The rest of the Agnese force
Welp, at least after this, no one can ever say that Touma's never experienced suffering before.
Mikoto for all the times she threw lightning spears at him, dropped him from buildings, and attacked him in other ways. Especially that little number from volume 3.
Also if mind controlled people count, the cram school
Misha, Rensa, that terrorist on the plane
Oh yeah, that one time in volume 3 and the one time in Railgun do count, though I wouldn't consider the other ones intent to kill, those are just her usual "get delinquents away from me" bolts
Misha was destroying the whole world, not him specifically. If she was aiming for anyone specifically it was the Toudad. I mentioned Rensa but you're right on the terrorist.
>Touma will never be that happy
If we're talking about people outside the main novels, there are that esper chick with the whip in the alien sidestory, that girl who tried to kill him with a sand spear in the audio drama, Shutaura in the movie...
>all the times she threw lightning spears at him
How many times do you idiots pretend to repeat this? Those aren't mortal, Kuroko and other people would've dead if that was the case. And he dropped himself from the building.
I think he means the time in WW3 when she hit him for molesting her.
But our merciful Lord and Saviour can grant repentant souls the absolution. Do you think someone would get a loli without one's sins being forgiven?
Godamn bro, it's okay to cry, let me give you a hug man
So... the touMAN deserves to die cuz he tried to kill himself? According to >>100428331
That was Sasha
Do I include Birdway too?
168cm of pure epicness and love for Biribiri
I just want another season of Touma's whacky adventures
is that asking too much?
Too bad, because JC Staff are busy doing 1 good anime and 3 other bad ones every year.
TouMAN meeting TADA BANRI when?
Yeah, even Touma tried to kill himself. But to his surprise Will-tan saved him.
All lolis need to be punched, so they can grow into fine women who know how to live their lives correctly.
A-Am I popular yet?
Touma would have an amnesia ghost too, but IB prevents it from appearing.
Why is LN Agnese so much better than other media Agnese
Did anyone other than "Touma is a gary stu because he's not a useless cripple" guy ever say that?
Ghost Touma would be proud of current Touma unlike Ghost Tada Fagri.
Because she only turns to not-shit after where the anime left off
Holy this, that's true
>Ghost Touma just sits around being angry that he doesn't get to punch everyone
Maybe his amnesia ghost is his precog
Since he can see things in a third person POV and reacts in ghost-time he can do shit no one else can
He'd be proud of current Touma, but sad as fuck because it effectively isn't him.
Goddammit that face
Burn that fuckin' headcrab.
I want a better quality Touma figure.
One that's based off Haimura's art.
With him wearing a gakuran. Maybe a scarf.
And maybe it could even be smiling.
What would happen if WORST were trapped in the same room as Touma?
Would she desperately claw at the door trying to escape while Touma looks on confused and eventually hyperventilate and pass out?
She'd get over it. It was just initial shock, but she can form her own thoughts about him quick enough.
She'd probably be nicer overall to him than the original to be honest.
She would overload with love infromation/emotions from the ntework.
At frist trying to escape and then giving up and rape him.
Worst worked shit out with ACCELERATOR.
You think she can't do the same with Touma?
But he's scary!
Could she make sense of Gunha?
Why is 10032 so perfect. Not only is she gorgeous, unlike 99% of Raildex females, she is honest, straightforward, earnest, incredibly kind, and understanding.
The chick incident was the only really negative thing she has ever done, and that was a complete misunderstanding based on how innocent she is.
10032 is the perfect girl and deserves are real name instead of a serial number. Since there already is a Misaka Worst, why don't we just start calling her Misaka Best?
Wacky adventures of BEST and Touma when
>"Okay, we're laying down some ground rules! Rule one, don't care about Misaka! Rule two, don't accept Misaka! Rule three, don't risk your life for Misaka! If you can follow those rues properly, Misaka thinks we can work things out."
I'm starting to suspect you're just reverse trolling.
Itsuwa is better.
How is acknowledging a character who is clearly more interesting, attractive, engaging, and fun, reverse trolling?
Best is a god damned miracle of the universe
>Double eyelid on asians
He is. But that doesn`t change the fact that 10032 is one of only three viable love interests for TouMAN.
Who are the other two?
Will is definitely one of them.
It doesn't matter if 10032 wins, because Will would just hijack her body and win anyways.
You could probably count both of them as one, since Will has no other way of getting with Touma and 10032 probably wouldn't mind letting Will-tan use her body if it got her closer to Touma.
I'm guessing one of the others is Mikoto due to all the stuff she has done throughout NT with him.
Then who is the third? Itsuwa because of waifu material? Index because she is a 'heroine'? Othinus if she does get murdered next volume?
Will Index finally be killed?
>What would happen if WORST were trapped in the same room as Touma?
What about Misaki
But Misaka didn't join in.
From what I can gather from the nips, the Will is more like a motherly figure for Touma rather than having a romantic interest for him.
Guys, what if...
Touma lost his memories again to deal with Othinus bullshit and became a yandere? Actually forget the dere part and put a double yan.
What if she traumatizes his memories back into him
Only if she can do that from hell, because that's where she's going in the moment touMAN lost his shit.
>Implying moms aren't the second best
Seriously nigger, do you even into incest?
Is she going to the special hell for her crimes against Toumanity?
Nigga, do you even moon?
Without the suffix is imouto, haha and ane.
Who the fuck pust Worst as worst girl?
Will > 9982 > 20002 = 10032 > Dolly > WORST = LO > 10777 = 19090 > * > 20000
But we have to return the favor to him!
