New Testament: A Certain Magical Index Vol.9 Chatper 6 Parts 1 and 2 are up, courtesy of Js06
must... resist... until full volume is up...
Last thread: >>100611320
Railgun Raws where?
Is this a newfag thing?
A world where Touma is literally worse than Hitler?
Go back to the future, futureman.
10032 a best
All other girls a shit
Othinus true queen
>For some reason, she rode up alongside him on an electric two-wheeled vehicle that she had picked up somewhere.
Oh wow, so that's where this came from.
Why is she holding a- oh I get it.
In 5-7 days
> mfw i just have read until NT3
> NT3 was kind of meh
Does it get better? i spended reading the whole novels in my native language and im ready to pick them up with Js06 translations, but NT3 wasn´t what i was expecting, tell me shit got real in the next volumes so i can pick this back up.
SoL shit follows, don't bother with it.
So, what did Touma do?
>yfw the future Touma chose is exactly what happens in the first reality Othinus showed him
What if she's unintentionally showing him the future, and this is more or less what the world tries to do after he saves her?
>that Fukiyose scene
Even with spoilers I wasn't ready for that
Realer than real since Touma breaks illusions
There's always a mention of her huge tits whenever she's around, even in a dire situation like that.
Eh? Gbh!? Gah! Gbheh…!!
Cough cough!! Gbgh!! Gbhah!?
Is Touma in super denial mode?
Shit goes crazy right after that. Hawaii arc was just NT's Adriatic/Daihaseisai.
Second chapters normally aren't as large as first chapters right? I wonder how much shorter Accel's will be, or how long they'll be each month. I remember Railgun's chapters started getting pretty short in comparison to before.
NT3 sets up Touma spiraling into suffering.
He's breaking anon.
Fukiyose Seiri pls
You can do it Anon! I'm resisting too! Yet... I can't stop refreshing Baka-Tsuki every couple hours...
>yfw it'll be never be Kamijou-san's lucky day
>learn Japanese because Js06 is my hero and I want to be a fast translator like him
>procrastinating and lurking /a/
>see this thread
Goddammit now I feel bad. But I'm getting there!
Shut up and do your reps, faggot.
I've got another 160 lines of smut to translate for this nukige. I'm beyond reps.
What? It's been around for a long while anon
You're doing god's work anon.
Ah, good old shibboleth.
It's just like in my VNs bad ends.
>All the way back at Volume 6 because decided to experience what the animu didn't show
This is going to be a ride once I finally get to it, isn't it?
It's okay anon, LNs are easy to burn through.
I hope they come out with another collection of side stories like the Index:SS for New Testament. Mabye since it is the new series you could call it New Testament: Reborn.
It would be really nice to see one where biribiri finally works up the never to ask Touma out on a real date, but on the way to meeting her he runs into 10032 first. When Touma and 10032 arrive, Biribiri is pissed off, and when Touma asks her why she is mad she just blushes calls him an idiot and runs off. The entire rest of the story is this wonderful awkward, happy adventure with 10032 and Touma that heals him a bit after everything that has happened where he buys her a ring, she flips out with joy, and ends with her kissing him and confessing.
That is only the start of the story. The rest of the story is a retelling of the events of teh date as told seen from Biribiri's point of view as she follows them around spying on them and various misfortune befalls her, and ends with her hiding behind a building breaking down and sobbing ehr eyes out after she sees the kiss.
Yeah I think reading NT:R would be pretty fun
10/10, you got me all the way to the end.
No, it's going to be PTSDxTouma. Or replace Mikoto with another girl.
It loses points for being a pasta.
>Touma goes to a psychiatrist
>Psychiatrist is a Kihara
I wonder if there's a Kihara gynecologist.
Waiting for some sick bastard to illustrate it.
>The Magic God sat on the top of the telephone pole with her legs elegantly crossed.
Oh god, Othinus appearing in and out like the devil to mindbreak Touma is so hot. I know I should despair for Touma but it just turns me on.
Can we talk about Accelerator's jacket?
Oh god. If this was bad, I really dread what's coming next.
I think the NT SS2-like volume will be about Aleister's past told in reverse.
No one can compete with her.
Sorry biribiri, time for you to chase after Aogami.
I'm avoiding reading this chapter until it's fully translated, but the scene this happens in is nowhere near as funny as this looks, is it?
It's funny since it is so out of place, and then bad things happen.
It's funny for a split second until more bad things happen.
Oh dear, welp hope I can take all the suffering
Why didn't Touma just ask Othinus out?
Hahaha...Son of a bitch ;_;
It's the dog Kihara
Well he is the most sociable Kihara, and Academy City probably has technology that is dog friendly to handle
>Well he is the most sociable Kihara
Well that's not really very saying much, is it? He's only interacted with another Kihara up until now. I'd imagine most Kiharas get along rather well with each other, seeing as how they probably understand one another.
...Then again, we did have Byouri, who was pretty much outright hostile towards just about anyone. But the way I figure, most Kiharas would have to get along, because if they couldn't, they'd have wiped each other out a long time ago.
The right arm of Kanzaki's denim jacket is not removed.
Will he ever smile again?
No, because no one protected his smile.
Sure thing. When he starts dating Othinus.
No because Index can't protect his smile
Man I feel so bad for Touma, Othinus better protect that smile when he goes to war for her.
I'm starting to wonder if there's some sort of Suffering Cup, and Kamachi's trying to win it this year
Threadly reminder that Othinus has set up a death flag.
>No bar code
>Both sleeves are uncut
Did Haimura forget, or did they only do that due to suffering, and no Index?
More time with Index means less time hunting magicians.
So is Stiyl nailing Index now or what
>Implying he can have that much happiness
He might not be as much of an edgy teen in that world, but that's still too much joy in his life
>"I just destroyed the universe and now I'm going to break yo-"
>"Let's go on a date."
>"Date. You know, girl and boy, boy and girl, doing things. Date."
>"H-have you lost your mind?! Why in the hell are-"
>"You're really cute, Othinus."
>"R-really..? Umm.. t-thank yo- Wait a second, that's not a point! To begin with, there's nowhere for us to 'go', if you didn't notice!!"
>"Well, then be a good girl and do something about it."
World saved, Othinus wins the T, Touma gets some, Biri, headcrab, Lessar and imouto mad, alliance trolled hard, GREMLIN trolled hard, Ollerus looks like a little bitch, TouDAD proud, keikaku not doori, no one can handle Touma's swag.
Balls of Steel end the best end.
She's a God, not Touma's Waifu.
>Implying Crowley won't have the perfect chance to doori his keikaku while they fuck
>yfw Stiyl got the barcode after getting his magic name to protect Index and his heart that it would not break when he acts like her enemy.
Like a Catholic priest to an altar boy.
What if NT ends with Touma and Othinus going into hiding, and the remaining volumes are about Accelerator?
Would you go with Fukiyose to a BBQ party?
Would would get a spin off series of them just fucking? I be down with that.
Would be shit
As Touma would describe it.
I wouldn't mind that happening for a few volumes. Especially if it lead to Mikoto getting set up with someone else
This novel reminds me of that one Touma is a Gary Stu shitposter, would anyone really want to be Touma after this?
>getting set up with someone else
I hate it when i'm late to the party and these threads pop up. I only started the 5th volume this morning.
Blog aside, I have a question.
About how long does it take for a chapter to be translated? (if it helps, let's suppose chapters are usually around 50 pages)
Also, the translation for the first 4 volumes are shoddy. Does that improve over time? Will there ever be a revised edition? Not that it really matters, since it's readable and it's free.
>About how long does it take for a chapter to be translated? (if it helps, let's suppose chapters are usually around 50 pages)
Couple of weeks.
The translations improve when js06 takes over, this novel should be fully translated in 2 weeks probably since js06 is amazing.
I still wish he'd fix the early volumes one of these days, since Vol 4 can get pretty damn confusing at points, though he still does have to deal with NT9, and those Kawakami novels, so that will have to wait
Alrighty thanks. One last question, are rail-gun novels (early chapters) a pain in the ass to find, truly, or am I just stupid?
If i'm stupid, let me wallow in my dumb. I'd rather find stuff on my own.
Everything is on baka-tsuki
Railgun has those novels and is a manga - which was adapted as anime.
There are only two Railgun LNs, Railgun SS1, and SS2.
SS1 can started after Index Vol 6, and SS2 can be read at any time, or do you mean the manga?
If it's the latter than yeah, you're being kinda stupid
There's also this manga about some albino dude and his loli.
I actually was thinkin gof checking there again, more thuroughly. See what I mean? Stupid! So stupid! Thanks, but fuck, you ruined it. The treasure will be less sweet.
I'm actually more interested in rail-gun. I find the esp powers as well as robots way more entertaining than the magic side. I also love the inner workings and dark side of academy city.
Are we still on Namek?
There's also Fanfare, which is technically a Railgun LN.
Did the anons ever finish scanlating that? I've been patiently waiting for mention of this getting finished, but I haven't seen any mention of it in threads for ages now.
Accelerator mango is batoto
>Did the anons ever finish scanlating that? I've been patiently waiting for mention of this getting finished, but I haven't seen any mention of it in threads for ages now.
I wish Gunha would have killed her
Yes, there was an even a page with missing text but was corrected. Don't know if any anon has the download link on them right now
>Jihanki no Fanfare
And just as I had finally forgotten that novel...
Actually, it might even be worse.
I already had them
I didn't know side story 1/2 were simply the rail-gun novels.
So uh, volume six huh? Well i'm almost there. Thanks a lot.
Well, we're still missing some side stories that are impossible to get scans of.
Neither of the Railgun SS's focus on AC, so tough luck there, bro
Also there are two separate SS's
Index SS's, and Railgun SS's, don't mistake them for one another
Aren't those mostly parodies instead of actual side stories?
>She's a God, not Touma's Waifu.
>Accelerator has a bikinibridge
They're called vagina bones.
How is this nigga 14? Is it ever explained?
It's as well explained as why Komoe looks like a loli
i.e not at all
Have you been living under a rock?
I just can't fucking wait until Accel will be a second main hero of the novels again, goddammit. He's amazing and needs his own story arcs again, for sure.
So when will new chapters of Railgun and Accel manga come out?
What do you think is so amazing about him?
I liked the bit where Othinus was riding a Segway for no reason.
>I just can't fucking wait until Accel will be a second main hero
You are a faggot
I actually dislike his involvement in NT so far
I get his protection of LO and her world but then he goes on a mission to protect Fremea for no reason other than "I've seen a picture of this girl before"
Plus, Will-san already told him to lay down and stop causing unnecessary trouble
>For no reason
Well, she is a goddess now. I would do exactly the same.
>but then he goes on a mission to protect Fremea for no reason other than "I've seen a picture of this girl before"
Also because he killed her former guardian.
It's cyclic. After seeing the wellspring of support for Touma since the later NT volumes, they've given up on him for a while, at least for this board anyway. Now they're back to flinging shit at Biribiri.
Yeah but he already made up for that in SS1 plus the guy mostly killed himself
Will-chan told him that abandoning his family to purge the darkness was the easy way out, and that if he tried it she'd kick his ass
She never said that he shouldn't help people out
I know, he helped in NT7 with no consequences because he wasn't the one causing trouble, just cleaning the shit someone else did
I just want a much better reason for him to do something other than "save the loli" for the 13th time
Can't we just like all the characters?
Except Haruue, and Nagai Saten
You don't get his character. He doesn't care only about LO and her world. Actually he cares about innocent people getting hurt, or about them being in danger. That's why he tries to help. Of course doing so he starts his tsundereism and mutters that they deserve a real hero and not him. He even asked Hamazura why he thought that his reason was doing Komaba a favour and not his own justice.
That's what I call assreading.
It's all Kamachi's fault for not giving Accel a chance to show how amazing and charismatic he is. He's not worse than Touma or Hamazura. It's like Kamachi doesn't give a shit about him anymore.
Well he's got his own manga now
/r/ing touman + keanu shoop
And Kamachi is fully on the Touma Train now, other characters are off on the sidelines
Why is the Accel manga so bad? You can tell Kamachi put a good outline over to the mangaka, but it's ruined by the bad exposition from the generic grunt and Yomikawa.
How the hell do you ruin Yomikawa's introduction?
They just gave him a fucking manga
Actually he's one of the most charismatic characters in this toaru shit. He's also interesting as hell. His performance is always enjoyable, his quotes are pretty nice and insightful. He has the most clear understanding of AC of all MCs and even started to realize Aleister's plans. His eventual humanizing must continue and if he mellows in the process it will be a win. He needs to be involved in things more often.
And unlike insane unreasonable Touma he has a strong reason for doing things and understands why he wants to help.
Do you not know how to quote, or what, man?
Bear with the art and pacing of the Accelerator manga and hope that it improves then. If it makes you feel happy, the congested nature of the timeline ensures that Touma won't be able to jump in and steal the spotlight from Accel until NT1.
How can you judge it off one chapter. The Yomikawa intro wasn't the best, but I don't think it was totally out of character either.
>and even started to realize Aleister's plans
Nope. Fiamma is the only one who has started to realize Aleister's plan.
>His eventual humanizing must continue and if he mellows in the process it will be a win.
Welcome to 3.5 years ago?
I do know. Don't wanna though.
And another Accelguy seems not to either.
Lets be honest now, nobody really has any clue what Aleister's grand plan is.
Except Kamachi, maybe
Aleister himself is probably just doing whatever shit he wants to
He did start to look into the root of Aleister's plans. Nor Touma or Hamazura or Mikoto tried to do so. He feels where things are hidden. But Will-san stopped him from investigating that as well as sacrificing himself out of guilt.
We do. He already told Fiamma that his plan was basically the same as his own, only in a different format. We know that he wants to remake the world. We know what the angels are for. We don't know HOW exactly he's going to do that.
Failing to even start investigating is nowhere near "realizing".
Mikoto isn't even an MC.
Touma understands pretty well why he helps, seeing innocents get hurt feels really shitty, so he makes a move to help them, does it seem impossible at times? Sure, but if he doesn't at the very least try then nothing will change, he wants that at the end of the day, everyone has a happy ending, even his enemy at the time, since he doesn't believe that just because a guy was an asshole once, means he'll be an asshole forever
>Welcome to 3.5 years ago?
It's still of current interest. The more he changes, the more enjoyable he gets.
Yeah, but remake the world into what exactly?
I think the spoilers mentioning that Aleister's tinkering with science and closing the gap between it and magic is kinda fucking over everything magic
Maybe he wants revenge on magic as a whole after his whatever happened way back when that made him almost die
Touma's reasoning for helping people is pretty simple and selfish. He feels good doing that kind of stuff. He's kind of Reverse Kotomine
>Mikoto isn't even an MC
But people keep on saying she is. By the way, there is already more Mikoto than Accel or Shiage in the novels.
The point was that what you "want to happen" already happened 3.5 years ago. He had completely mellowed out by vol 22. Keep up.
We don't know what exactly, but we do know that the new world would be a world where the current system of magic would not function at all.
>But people keep on saying she is.
Idiots who have no idea what they're talking about, maybe. Like you. Word of God says that the 3 MCs are Touma, Accelerator and Hamazura.
>there is already more Mikoto
There is more Index than everyone else sans Toma. Index isn't an MC either.
Can Himegami be a protagonist?
If the actual Crowley is any indication it'll be a utopia where everyone is free to follow their true will. Or a giant drug fueled orgy.
Nope, she can't even be the protagonist in her own life
The reason why Touma helps is selfish. He's already said that himself. He helps people for himself. Yes, he likes when all people get a happy ending and happy overall but can he be called a kind person if the reason itself is selfish? I can't really tell though.
And I find his helping Othinus rather insane.
>The reason I created Himegami was also to create a tragic girl who could never be the heroine.
Why you so stupid?
>but can he be called a kind person
Touma is not someone who is "good" or "kind". His actions only seem "good" because they are good from others' perspective. Read vol 19.
Etzali was right, the Kamijou faction is gonna end up destroying the world
>Idiots who have no idea what they're talking about,
Well, Kamachi is idiot.
>Idiots who have no idea what they're talking about, maybe. Like you.
Yeah and some faggots always think I agree with that Mikoto MC bullshit. Like you.
Because you tried to give some idiotic "proof" of her being an MC. Up til vol 22, Stiyl had more screentime than Hamazura, but he's not an MC.
Yeah, but isn't that Normal? I mean, there are people who think Hitlers actions were good. Yet he is considered an evil person by pretty much everyone.
The difference here is that the majority is on the good side.
Yeah, but what if the majority is wrong. So something is considered good if the majority agrees it is?
Pretty much. Fiamma was viewed as "Enemy of the World" when all he wanted to do was save it. Well, he was kinda dickish in doing it
>He had completely mellowed out by vol 22. Keep up.
B-but he smiled with true smile only once ;_;
Also more Accel family interactions would be great
No, the point here is that Touma isn't trying to do "good" but rather simply doing what he wants to do. It just so happens that what he wants to do is considered good by those who see it.
>keikaku not doori
It's always part of keikaku anon, even when it isn't.
He was going to save it by a large amount of telesma that would have also caused a lot of destruction.
Didn't he compare it to the arc of Noah? More people died than got saved in that tale if you asked me.
How can he abandon Othinus now that he fully understood her feelings, and that she gave up her chance of going back to her original world, so that he could have his back, especially after he had already given her his blessing?
You gotta break a few eggs to make an omelet, man
b-but i'm a vegan
That part was just the beginning. The actual saving part would happen when he starts turning the world into heaven. Basically, he first purges the world, then defeats the enemy that must be defeated, and finally creates heaven on earth. Think judgement day.
Fiamma did nothing wrong
>Beat up Best Pope
It was all for the greater good
If Hamazura is supposed to be an MC, the author is being very bad at his job. The fucker hasn't been relevant for years and will likely never be anything more than Mugino's punching bag. Touma is the only real MC of the story.
They are incidental protagonists.
Well, if NT7 is right, there are 700 heroes in AC.
I hope Kamachi writes about them all.
They will be back in the final battle. Along with the Rensas, 9000+ Misakas, Amakusa and the 250 Battle Nuns
>If Hamazura is supposed to be an MC
Read the afterwords.
>>This is a good opportunity to talk about the three main characters.
>>About Kamijou Touma:
>>About Hamazura Shiage:
Hell, just read the novels. They are recognized as the 3 MCs in the story itself:
>“There are many different types of heroes. …There are those who aren’t told what to do and just move straight ahead following the feelings welling up within. …There are those who committed a major sin in the past and try to walk down the right path due to the anguish that sin brings them. …And there are those who were chosen by no one and possess none of the characteristics one would expect of a hero, and yet become a hero for that one person they care for. Each of those types is the type of person who will always stand back up when knocked to the ground.”
>yfw Touma is with GREMLIN

Ya'll niggas ready for the REAL Kamijou Faction to shake the very foundations of the Raildex world
Bettle > Kakine Ball
>psychopath with guilt complex
Psychopaths are charismatic
Yeah, bud. A psychopath with any degree of intelligence naturally has to pick up charisma. It's really the only substitute for empathy.
A real charmer, this guy
“Don’t be so sure,” said a girl’s voice.
For some reason, she rode up alongside him on an electric two-wheeled vehicle that she had picked up somewhere.
“Things might not go as nicely as you think they will.”
He tried to punch her, but the Magic God and her vehicle disappeared like smoke.
Suddenly this gif >>100700794 makes a lot more sense and I'm laughing even harder than the first time I saw it.
>reading Kisu KMS
Don't forget: >tumblr
Oh dear, is she gonna be doing this the whole time as Touma suffers?
And here I thought this was gonna be the nofun allowed volume on Index
>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."
But people are supporting it.
NT9 is the worst selling NT novel.
Will we hear pic related's glorious and based voice in an Index song ever again?
exactly, Anime is advertisement for LNs and manga. There is nothing more to gain from advertising more.
How many copies did it sell? It didn't do so well? I thought Index was still very popular in Japan?
It's because there was no Biribiri on the cover art, even NT8 had some of her even if she was hidden by the title
No one wants to see Touma suffer a hard life?
So was your mum.
Well i guess making such GRAFIX is obviously not profitable
Check the archives.
What sick fiend would want that?
>tfw the boorus are still filled with none of the new Othinus and Touma artwork and is with the same old Railgun shit
>NT9 is the worst selling NT novel.
That's why they need to restart the series soon. Sales bump would be epic.
I loled at you.
Also, it seems you don't even know what charisma really is.
What if Will-tan is actually Crowley using the network to manipulate Accelerator and Touma after his humiliation earlier on in NT.
>*1. 77,789 *77,789 Toaru Majutsu no Index: New Testament Vol.9
78k isn't bad for only being sold 2 days. You'll have to wait a little longer to make such statements.
Touma's suffering makes my dick harder
When is Biribiri's birthday?
>Kamachi wll never bother to reveal the birthday of his other important characters
>mfw when she has the same birthday as her seiyuu
>mfw she has the same birthday as Connie Springer
>mfw she has the same birthday as one of my former crushes
>Touma doesn't remember his own birthday
>Still no info on when's Touma's birthday
Zappy Dan really needs to stop hogging the spotlight
Wait a second. When was Hitler's birthday again?
Wasn't the TouMAN supposed to be an Aquarius though?
Thanks. What's her blood type then?
Her birthday present will be Touma walking around AC with Will-chan and Othinus
April 20. Same as Eiko Shimamiya and pic related.
Indeed he is
If you're faggot.
By then she would have forgotten about him and moved on with her new lesbian life.
>dating a corpse
She has already been replaced
>While those two had that mysterious conversation, the 4 girls with the exact same face were arguing.
>“Mh! The love fortune for Type AB isn’t bad! reports Misaka #10032!!”
>“Yes, but Misaka is Type AB too, so hers isn’t bad either! reports Misaka #10039!!”
>“No! Of all of the Misakas, this Misaka is Type Super AB, so Misaka’s fortune is super not bad! says Super Misaka #13577 as she snatches it all up for herself!!”
>“No, no. This Misaka gets the last laugh, says Misaka #19090 as she declares herself to be the supreme ruler of the AB World!!”
>Super not bad
There is something not quite right here
Saiai is a super bad influence clearly
Don't mind me.
Will we ever see Arisa again and hear her wonderful voice once more?
Is that what happens when he's exploding limbs?
Super AB is best blood type.
Original Mikasa is still best Mikasa though.
>tfw sharing the same horoscope as the TouMan
>kamachi still doesn't have an article in wikipedia
So Touma's birthday is somewhere in January of February.
W-will it cheer up him anons?
(Also Biri sobs as the age gap between them grows larger.)
She's dead, Jim.
He's got one in the Japanese wikipedia.
Touma will die in December, anon.
He'll be dead before that day ever comes
She can always return right? right?
>Biri is 14
>Touma will soon be 17
>Biri finally gets the T
>Touma is arrested for statuary rape
Touma isn't even a year old yet, if any one deserves to be arrested it's the Biribiri
The TouMAN will die?
The next novel will have Touma and Othinus hiding away on a tropical island as a newly wed couple right?
It's confirmed for a boss rush, so no.
After the boss rush, if they're still at war with the world and Othinus hasn't died yet, the Kamijou faction will finally do something and help them flee somewhere of they'll take refugee in AC and give Laura her perfect chance to throw magic nukes at Aleister.
Yes, and making love on the beach. Haimura will be drawing porn again.
Magic Nukes seem so unimpressive once you've had a boss character who destroyed the whole universe
So... will the tropical island be a fictional place, not mentioned by name, or be a real place?
No Misaka and Index will kill Othinus in front of Touma
What would Touma and Thor have seen if they were pulled into the spooky deep darkness of the windowless building?
Well, it'd be a real place if they were telling other people they were newlyweds right?
>Ruining their chances of winning the T
>Making Touma go suicidal again
>NT10's cover is Touma with Will and Othinus by his side
>Othinus is imitating Index's pose in the volume 1 cover
>Will's pose is imitating Mikoto's pose in the volume 3 cover
I would never stop laughing.
Crowley's semen tank.
The man is absolutely terrible at keeping things clean, and his semen cows are all over the place
>Not copying this pose
>inb4 they went to some island in the Pacific.
I thought of that too but I wanted to rub insult to injury by having them imitate the cover poses. Replacing the heroines and all that. Usually the girl who's in the cover of volume 1 is the winner so I was working with that logic in mind.
Othinus will fix up Liberal Arts City
There'll be Hollywood explosions every time he thrusts
Nope. NT4 had lower sales in the first week. Wait for 3 weeks before you try to compare sales.
1st week: 65 983
1st week: 77 789
She is mentioned in NT9.
Why is it cheaper? Is it because of the book pages?
Yes. Thinner books are cheaper.
NT4 was around 400 pages while I think NT 9 is supposed to be around 350.
50,000+ sales for an LN is still good right?
Doesn't necessarily mean that she'll ever come back.
For the first week, sure. Overall sales are usually around 150-200 thousand for Index, with the best selling around 350-400 thousand I believe.
Very. LN's selling around 20~40k still get anime, even some that sell less still get one.
Index is part of the group of Light novels that has huge sales breaking 150k almost every volume, just like SAO and Monogatari.
Has there been any sales data about Heavy Object?
I recall volume 6 sold 21000 in it's first week, don't know what it's overall sales were. So it does alright, not anywhere near the top though.
The Index series is still going strong. In about how many years do you think it will end?
Kamachi said we were halfway through around volume 20 I think.
The latest volume sold around 25k in the first 2 weeks.
HO 亡霊達の警察: 704円
1st week: 11 471
2nd week: 13 646
I wonder if there are going to be new characters that are going to be introduced just to be used for fodder in this or if Touma is going to go and punch out people he know.
NT9, Between the Lines 4
Probably a dumb question, but is it describing Touma losing count of how many times he's died?
It seems more like it's from Othinus' point of view, somewhere in the past. Being an immortal god while the world is always changing, sentences like.
>The person had wanted something definite.
>They had wanted something unchanging to support them.
>Even if it was completely natural, they knew this was a difficult wish to grant. People aged and things broke. Food rotted and metal rusted. Towns changed and cultures were twisted. Not even nations and civilizations stayed the same forever. Even if they were not in this black world, finding something that truly did not change would have been extremely difficult.
make more sense.
So who will help Touma to elliminate all the bosses?
Touma is the boss, the rest of the world are the heroes trying to defeat him
Mikoto, Index and Lessar.
Reminder that NT3 is still the best selling NT novel.
I hope nobody at least right away.
The force trapped inside him.
>First bosh rush Touma fights is his harem's wrath
>it gets stronger through experiences that Touma has, which is why Crowley was constantly allowing Touma to fight people
>obscene amount of leveling up through Othinus' ordeal, which contrasts its apparent weakness in NT4
The rape is just beginning.
>most popular female LN Protag of recent years on front cover, with her love interest
GEE, I WONDER WHY THAT IS.
How would Touma even go about fighting a Saint though? Barring cutting off his arm.
It's power of pure love.
WAsn't he trying to create an artificial heaven?
Is this something worth a read? The first anime was complete crap at least. I never finished
I'd stick with the LNs and the Railgun manga
>still no love for the Accel manga
Just finished reading the novel and NT10 cannot come soon enough.
Will-chan is best girl.
Wait wait wait wait
Why is the prologue up, but then the other chapters are skipped and then suddenly it's chapter 5?
Because it's the next chapter of the arc that started in the previous book, dummy
>Will-chan is best girl.
Because it's a direct continuation of the previous novel newfriend.
Shit, this wait is killing me, I should've learned moon.
You guys are right. Silly me.
>yfw there'd still be no proper illustration scans of NT9 come NT10
The anon who usually edits the illustrations said he would do proper scans if they aren't out when he gets his book in a few weeks.
I want the elevens to do it because I feel sorry for him wrecking his own shit.
More like the power of Mikoto bux and an enormous kamikoto fanbase.
If the next NT had a cover of Kanzaki (is she still as popular as she once was? I remember her being a "rival" of sorts in popularity a few years ago, but that might have diminished) and Mikoto fighting over Touma, with Accelerator looking annoyed in the background, the sales would be fucking staggering.
Needs better art
That is just a means to an end
Will Will-chan appear in NT10?
Oh yeah, how long would you say Touma spent in the alternate worlds?
I still can't get over what Heaven Canceller looked like.
It's still early days for the mangaka, but I really wish he'd polish up his drawing style quickly.
So, how good is NT9 when compared to other volumes?
I really hated Haimura art for the first volumes, so I'll restrain myself for throwing shit at the poor guy.
Is Will-tan really that good to acquire best girl status in just one volume?
Fuck, now I'm more hyped than ever.
>already have a sizable boner for Misaka Sisters
>Will-chan this novel looks genki as fuck
>All of the other stuff with stupid sexy Othinus bullying poor Touma
Jesus, I don't even think I can handle this volume.
I do to. Seriously, if the art just gets a bit better, it looks like it could be something fairly interesting, and would really help take off the edge of waiting for a 20~ page Railgun manga per month and a LN per 3-5 months. Anything that generate more (positive) discussion is good in my book. But the art is distracting right now. It doesn't need to be absolutely breath taking or anything, but I really hope he improves fast.
His only notable fault is his character designs/proportions. I think his mecha designs, action scenes, and environment were fine. He also did a pretty nice edgy face for Accelerator when he went on his darkness/hero rant.
>Saten comforting Biribiri after losing the Touman
Yes, she will hijack Mikoto.
>mfw /u/ delusions are now more likely to become true than kamikoto
Whichever works. You get my point though: Mikoto + (rival love interest) + Touma + Accelerator would print money, just by riding popularity alone.
The character designs and proportions - aside from HC - are generally fine; it's the facial expressions that look really off and those rounded mouths which really bug me.
These are small things to change, but changing them would make a huge difference to the feeling (especially if he can get characters looking more than passive).
It would definitely be nice to have Accel chapters to break the wait for Railgun, especially if we get this many pages on a regular basis. Waiting a month for 20 pages of Railgun is too long.
I'm okay with this.
Even better, Worst would become Will's Host. With Worst switching back and forth with her in control
It would be great if Kamachi decides to bring the yuri ships back to life. It certainly wouldn't come out of nowhere, they even asked Mikoto how many girls have confessed to her.
>It would be great
No, it wouldn't. Yuri is disgusting.
>bring the yuri ships back to life.
The closest things to yuri were KurokoxMikoto and SatenxUiharu. The first was for comedy and the second was with goggles on full power.
They never had enough to life to bring back, Anon.
Not as disgusting as Kamikoto.
Careful with that edge, son.
How is disliking lesbians edgy?
Because being a faggot is edgy.
Lesbians are faggots
why are there no illustrations?
There are, but they are not like the ones we usually get. You know, literally ripped off the book ones then scanned.
She said she would side with him even if he made an enemy of everyone else in the world, so I assume so.
Impossible to say.
The exact number of despair worlds is never given and how long they lasted is unknown.
The number of times he fought Othinus is also unclear. At one point, the narration says it has repeated "tens of thousands, hundreds of thousands, or even millions of times", but it later refers to the number of times Othinus has killed him as "exceeding 10031 times".
Lastly, a few lines seem to say that Touma has to relive all the despair worlds each and every time he dies.
And in the afterword, Kamachi says Touma's position has gone well beyond that of a movie kung fu master or an immortal loli who speaks like an old woman.
Kamachi says he doesn't need to change how Touma acts because he thinks Touma would act and speak the same even as an old man.
I'd say it was the best NT novel, but some of the plot points seemed a bit inconsistent.
This. Kamikoto is forced pandering at this point. We need Touma to break her illusions and make her return to where she belongs.
I actually find it easier to debind the shit and then scan it. Simply because scanning it with the binding intact is a pain in the ass and occasionally has to be rescanned.
>And in the afterword, Kamachi says Touma's position has gone well beyond that of a movie kung fu master or an immortal loli who speaks like an old woman.
Oh Kamachi, you and your lolis.
But Touma confirmed for new badass in town. Has died more times than the Misakas combined and is mentally older than anyone else alive, aside from Othinus.
Though it'd be at the expense of everyone else's fun I honestly hope he tones it down with the amount of pages for Accel, doing near 70 pages each month around exam times would be pretty shitty. Or at least tone it down with the spreads, that way I can just use actions and leave batches running during classes. I don't think there's any 60 page a month series on Dengeki though, is there? Usually it's just that or around that for first chapters and then it goes down to mid 30s after the first chapter.
Now I'm curious as to what host she will use in the real world. Surely it will be 10032.
Also, what does Touma think of her?
Hah wow, my hype keeps increasing. Touma confirmed for immortal kung fu master loli that doesn't give a fuck.
>where she belongs
>Lastly, a few lines seem to say that Touma has to relive all the despair worlds each and every time he dies.
>tens of thousands, hundreds of thousands, or even millions of times
Jesus christ, that Touma dedication. No wonder Othinus broke down first.
A couple series in Daioh average around 40 pages, but it is pretty rare. Sora no Otoshimono is one of the few monthly series, if not the only one, that will do 50+ pages a month that I can think of. Not a Daioh series though, of course.
Also, mind uploading the said action(s)? I'd like to see how the process is done.
I want to break Othinus... Without the dying thousands of times over and over again
"Ordinary high school student," my ass. He's a monster.
And then he goes around and declares the world his enemy to protect her, how can you not go full dere after that?
That's because Will got his back. Damn it Kamachi, stop introducing best girls after another.
Don't be silly anon. She always belonged to, first Tokiwadai, and second her friends and admirers.
I haven't made any actions because it was the first time I worked on a magazine manga (I've been doing doujinshis which have way higher quality paper), it's something I was planning to do later once I got the hang of it. I also gotta make it more efficient so that I don't have to use denoise so much. Once I make them I'll upload them, though.
Damn, this novel makes everything else in the franchise seem so small and insignificant. From the scale of things, the time, the experience and character development.
Thank you kindly.
I think we should get a drawfag to draw TouMAN as an immortal kung-fu loli.
Yea, I'm kind of wondering what Kamachi is going to do now. I mean shit, What is Crowley and Laura's keikakus even going to amount to when compared to Othinus's crazy shenanigans?
During the Othinus fight, Touma not only said he was one of those, but he said he would lose in a fight against a normal magician.
He's clearly either a liar or delusional.
At this rate, I'm expecting Kamachi to pull a Needless and actually make Touma into a loli. But Kamachi doesn't seem to explore genderbender much. Or at all.
He just wants to stay a normal high school student man, don't break his illusion.
I think he is just a smooth talker.
Thor seems like a good start.
Past Touman gonna break New Touman's illusions. Make it happen, Kamachi.
Because New Touman could kick Past Touman's ass, which would make him realize how delusional he's been.
I mean, Stiyl is the textbook definition of a normal magician (actually according to Richard Brave he's above average), and by the Endymion side story he literally doesn't even have to try to beat him.
How will Touma ever go back to a normal life? How will Touma ever be able to finish his homework?
>And he still doesn't know how to use the full power of IB
Touma is going to negate the universe
This anon asks the real questions.
>Only magician to create new runes or some shit
>Considered a genius
Touma is going to force the universe to create a loli representation of it's will.
And then he's going to add it to his harem.
>I'd say it was the best NT novel, but some of the plot points seemed a bit inconsistent.
You're must be kidding.
>(actually according to Richard Brave he's above average)
>You're must be
Imagine living that many despair cycles only for each one to end with you getting killed by a sure kill attack once you fight Othinus. Then after countless attempts, you miraculously get past that first barrage only to die to the 2nd attack.
If Othinus hadn't broke down, Touma would probably repeat the entire process just to dodge that 2nd attack.
10k deaths to close the distance by 1 step so you can punch her in the face
Another 10k deaths to add another step and so on until his fist is close enough to reach her.
That's some dedication just to punch someone in the face.
Touma can never go home again.
Nah, Yamisaka Ouma is a textbook definition of a magician.
I don't think Touma minds being the enemy of the world once again, this time in the original world, and maybe with the support of the people known to him.
I can only imagine Touma spending his first 500 deaths dying mid-speech just trying to complete it
Well, she really pissed him off.
All my money.
420 faggot why do you think stoners are on pol?
Does it count as NTR?
We're gonna need a bigger appreciate poster
>Himegami will never be relevant
>Izzard will never return
>Izzard will never get to apologize to Himegami for hurting her
>they will never hunt vampires together
Would Touma fall for Mikoto if her mind was hijacked by Will-tan?
If Will-chan wins, at least Thunder King Thunder King will know Touma found her attractive.
>Kamachi says he doesn't need to change how Touma acts because he thinks Touma would act and speak the same even as an old man.
Well that's kind of disappointing, age aside but numerous deaths and despair must change him a little at least.
>Hijacking her body to get them together
The ultimate wingman
How it should've been.
I feel like dating any Misaka would work out rough for Touma. He has no way of knowing if a different one has snuck in to have sex with him.
>Thunder King Thunder King
>not Zappy Dan the Magnet Man
You dun goofed
I only just finished the anime on Saturday still need to finish Railgun however. I still need more index so I guess start at volume 1 of the light novels?
Someone really needs to drawfag Touma dying over and over and getting progressively more and more pissed off because Othinus never lets him finish his monologue.
That is probably the true upgrade here: Touma learned how to word his speeches better and leave out all of the fluff. He also learned how to talk much, much quicker. From now on, his speeches will be much more concise and get to the heart of the situation.
Thus we see Touma as a master orator after his trials, capable of persuading and motivating anyone within shouting range. Eventually, fights will give way to Touma bombarding his opponents with philosophical arguments and overwhelming them with the sheer amount of life lessons and backwards logic. Essentially, he will have developed his own version of Sheol Fear, though much more potent as it isn't limited to christian mobs. Truly, Touma will be a force to be reckoned with. This is probably why Crowley locked himself in the windowless building, so that he could stave off the effects of Touma's speech prowess by never directly hearing him.
>Touma falls for Will-hijacked Mikoto
>Mikoto gets pregnant
>Will fuses with the baby
>Mikoto wakes up wondering why she's five months pregnant with someone's kid
>Will needs to occasionally hijack Mikoto to keep her in check until the baby is delivered
>Touma is, and remains, confused
At least it has precedence with Freya
Also Railgun Manga > Railgun anime.
he is the king of luck, I bet it would happen 3x a week.
If she knows it's Touma's she wouldn't mind.
Speaking of Izzard,
>Perfect world where everyone (but Touma) got their happy ending
>Index is with Stiyl, Kanzaki, and several priests and nuns Touma doesn't recognize
>Hitler was known as a master orator
He moved on, I'm happy for him
I think it'd be amusing if his not being around is actually just Othinus being unable to revert what IB/the invisible force did to him.
He did pull the whole Fiamma hiding troll maneuver, but it really is just more likely he forgot about everything and everyone from volume 2.
He deserves a happy ending too Kamachi
holy fucking shit what happens to Touman?
All this dieing enemey of the world shit forever sad, do I want to even read the novels now and livei n my dillusional anime only world?!
He can take it anon.
Though I don't think Kamachi's sadism-boner will ever be truly sated.
Himegami is never mentioned either. Haimura put her in that one illustration, but I don't recall the text ever mentioning her.
New in this topics, currently in NT3, where I can find the PDFs from Baka-tsuki? theres only the "full text" ones in the page.
Is the psp fighting game anygood? Also are any of the LNs translated in English so I can support it?
You mean he put in Himegami instead of Casual Vento when he had no reason to? Dammit, Haimura.
BT has a PDF generator on its sidebar.
>Is the psp fighting game anygood?
>Also are any of the LNs translated in English so I can support it?
Ongoing fan-translation at
No official English release, if that's what you mean.
Is Misaki mentioned either?
How does it handle translator notes or that godawful furigana thing some of the translators do?
Komoe was explained.
Yeah I already bookmarked baka-tsuki. Was hoping to actually have a book in my hands, A Ereader would be nice I bet.
No it's not. The game is awful
>keikaku not doori
All of that is keikaku doori
6'7" at 14
Seriously what the fuck, I thought stiyl was at least 18.
Touma is basically like Shirou, only even more retarded with more Fukou da.
Sorry, no official translation. There's probably way too many at this point for anyone to want to get into that long a haul.
ah shit, oh well.
She's arguing with Kumokawa Seria in the perfect world.
No idea. I haven't looked through them that thoroughly.
How about Mikoto in perfect world?
It was nice to see this overturned, even if it was just a what-if.
Hanging out with Accelerator and the Sisters.
>in a perfect world, Mikoto hangs out with Accelerator and the Sisters
How the hell does that work?
NT9 is next level shit. Damn, Kamachi is stupid asshole.
That sounds fun as fuck
Things must be very warped and skewed in that "perfect" world.
>yfw Kuroko is straight and alive
>yfw she's going out with Tsuchi
In that world Accel never killed any Sisters, no reason for Mikoto and Accel to hate eachother.
It's not really meant to be a "perfect world". It's more of a "world where everyone has been saved in a more perfect manner than Touma could ever hope to accomplish himself".
when does kuroko die?
Level 5s don't need a reason to hate each other
>It's more of a "world where everyone has been saved in a more perfect manner than Touma could ever hope to accomplish himself"
But can he save… himself?
it's just an ilusion
Fuck off Aizen
Go away shoddy Crowley wannabe.
Just a quick question, is Railgun S less "cute girls doing cute things" than the first one? Watched Index > Railgun > Index II and I was really turned off by the amount of non plot related bullshit they go through.
The first arc of Railgun S has actual plot.
Almost everything up to Episode 16 was perfect because they actually followed the manga.
During the sisters arc yes, after that it is worse than the first season
Yes. At least the first arc is very dark and emotional, except for episodes 1 and 7. Stop watching after episode 17 though.
The first arc is really great, you should watch it, the second arc is complete and utter garbage, you can skip it, except for the last episode, because that one is a true masterpiece.
I don't know what you guys are talking about, Railgun S only had 16 episodes.
It has 17 episodes, but the last episode is number 24.
Don't delude yourself anon, also the episode with Kuroko, Frenda and the tortoise blood was kinda interesting
You cannot stand against the deep darkness.
The other episodes are hidden in the Darkness.
I want to keep Frenda locked up in my basement after that episode to keep the tainted air of Nagaispace away from her.
The only good that came from all that was this
She doesn't look half bad there.
You mean making the beginning of the daihasei arc impossible to adapt?how is that a good thing?
Not the Daihasei arc (or the lack thereof. Or the lack of the LAC arc they kept hinting at the beginning of the season.)
Just Frenda, pure and simple.
>impossible to adapt
Would it really be that hard to write a new scene with Item getting the call?
Feels good to know this could happen in an alternate world.
>Accel without tits
There was plenty of Fren da in the sisters arc
If you trust Nagai that much
Also it is not only the ITEM scene, they used some scenes of the daihasei too, not to mention that the Kongou mini-arc can't happen in the anime now
>yfw Frenda is alive in the perfect world
I really want to see the Daihasei arc. But they need to completely disregard everything Nagai has done with the anime up until this point otherwise it'll be a horrible mess that makes no sense, or some horrible butchered JC Staff mangling that tries to reconcile the two. I really don't want the latter to happen.
Frenda doesn't die, she just evolves into a higher being
Does she get wings made of bombs?
In all of these worlds Touma is subjected to, is there a Miki-world?
I assume most of you Anons started with the anime and then read the novels, but I should just start with the novels, right?
>but I should just start with the novels, right?
Yeah. I actually started with the novel spoilers before the anime was even out, because I saw it had a manga.
Miki world would require Kamikoto
Personally a fan
Your Kamijou Touma hit level 10000 and evolved into Ii-chan
Come on, Touma probably still doesn't lie THAT much. Right?
Touma has a habit of underrating himself. We all know this. He constantly likes to refer to himself as a Level 0 and despite beating beating high-level enemies all the time, he still says he's inferior to them. He still thinks he's inferior to Accelerator.
I think he just really desperately wants to be un-special. He's like an nega-chuuni.
So now that JS06 has read the whole novel, does that mean translations will be faster.
I don't mean to rush the guy, but all the posts in this thread are making me pass my bearable hype threshold
Oops, didn't mean to quote
That's what I was asking
That picture combined with the post they reply to makes it seems like she ascends
I thought js06's translations were relatively fast because he would read a chapter, then translate it right after. I figured that other translations were slow because either they don't care much about the series or they already read it and could be assed to go back
>couldn't be assed
Yeah his translations are fast, it gives me something to read in the morning while waiting for college classes
>yfw JC Staff decided to do Sisters Arc because Frenda a cute
>Frenda becomes popular because a cute and Maaya Uchida
>Index 3 is put on indefinite hold to spare the horror for Frendafags
>keikaku doori for JC Staff
You suck man, I can't read anything until weekends because I'm reading shit during the week for college classes.
Reminder that JS06 is our savior
You shoulda made a schedule with gaps between classes Sage for offtopic
They would just heavily censor the scene, implying her death rather than showing it, then bring her back as a cyborg for the filler arc of Railgun D which would go against the timeline because it would be set before volume 15, but JC Staff doesn't care about that.
New thread apparently. >>100740821
Not sure why some of these newfriends forget to post a new link in the old thread, but whatever.
