I didn't see a Raildex thread in the catalog. Can we have one?
Also, it's best Index singer Mami Kawada's birthday today.
No Raildexfags today?
I wanna assault Misaka's mouth with my tongue
where is everybody?
WELCOME TO DULOC SUCH A PERFECT TOWN
Daily reminder that Index III never.
That's okay. We'll get Railgun 3 pretty soon.
Anon, it means both Index and Railgun are on hiatus.
Also, why aren't you guys greeting pic related Happy Birthday?
Raildex threads always start slowly. Sooner or later someone will write something waifu related, like "Misaka a shit" or "Which dex would you rail".
Well, I guess I can do it right now.
Who is the best onee-san and who is the best imouto?
>there are people that think Mikoto forced connection is as strong as Thor
Seriously, no one likes her?
mami kawada singing the opening to shana was the only reason i watched it, hell when she sings an ending theme or opening to an anime i while gladly watch it
Why isn't anyone greeting her here? Doesn't she have fans here?
But first, can we agree that Misaka is best Raildex?
>But first, can we agree that Misaka is best Raildex?
i prefer best girls to not be bitches
Wait... no one here likes Mami Kawada?
no buts a shit
what's there not to like
Well, i can't go to sleep for some reason so I guess I'll go ahead and start on corrections.
After reading the discussion last thread it appears that we came to some conclusions, and some debatable subjects:
-Everyone is fine with me removing the Railgun Border next version
-I forgot to correct "Success" Othinus's spelling
-Thor needs two different tabs, one with Mjolnir and one without
-There was some disagreement on Exterior Mikoto's placement. Honestly, I kind of wanted to hold off from even putting her in the chart yet since her power is raising rapidly and I knew it would be controversial. That said, I think that I got the general area pretty close, considering her feats so far and the nature of the power up. But more people should probably weigh in on the matter before I do anything about it.
-Someone questioned the placement of Ureapaddy Exica. She's another tough person to place. If certain circumstances are met, she could fuck over the entire world. However, given the circumstances involved, I opted to put her lower, because generally she does not have that kind of strength. But I'm willing to hear more on the subject if anyone has anything to say about it.
I'm posting the chart now for anyone who missed it. It's not completely done, and I didn't bother to "pretty it up" yet. I haven't edited at all since I posted it yesterday. So, if you guys have anything to say or want to discuss, go for it.
I myself might dip out pretty soon, considering how late it is where I'm at.
Should just post the code nigger:
Last thread: >>101926282
I was referring to Mami.
She's part British
it was to late to cancel the post...It was too late, man!...But this is a raildex thread, no? No harm done
If you actually followed the Raildex General, you'd know that we don't make 24/7 threads during lulls and just chill in the old thread while waiting for news or new content.
OP here. Actually, in Japan, bad teeth are considered cute.
But as a Mami fan, I have to agree. Those teeth are terrible.
Also, as OP, I now make this thread a joint (no pun intended) Mami Kawada/Raildex thread.
Just leave Exterior where she's at for now. At this point there's no reason to move her to Teitoku/Accelerator level or Thor/Saint. We'll get a better picture in two or three months probably.
Speaking of Mami Kawada
NO BUTS CONTINUATION WHEN?
I think you're ranking Beetle #5 way too high.
The individual beetle units used by Kakine in Vol.6 weren't really all that powerful on their own.
I really cannot see a single beetle unit beating any Level 5 on its own without intervention from the main body. They're just disposable tools without any real strength behind them. They might be too much for a typical Level 4, but I definitely don't think any Level 5 with the exception of perhaps the non-combatant Misaki would lose to one.
season 3 never
Biri with that halo looks like some kind of failed abortion of Angel, but she is far from being a planet-buster or even country-buster. She's probably somewhere near Saint level right now, considering power output only. So her placement is quite correct, because she does not seem to think and just shoots her power randomly at people. Maybe she could be a bit higher, but still not in the Saint tier.
I think we should wait for her final form or whatever and then decide what to do.
fuck you autists
I disagree. Considering how well Equ Dark Matter suits did against Mugino, I would think a construct made entirely of DM would be pretty good.
Then again, Mugino was pretty fuck up at that point... Still, it IS Dark Matter.
God I miss the endless shitposting
I like the general when it's decent, but sometimes retardation can be fun too. Like, 'watching a trainwreck slow motion' kind of fun.
A single Equ. Dark Matter-equipped soldier would be no match for a full-power Mugino. Or did you forget that she managed to easily shoot off one's arm despite being nowhere near prime condition?
Yes, but keep in mind that only the Helmet had DM. Where as a beetle's entire body is made of the stuff.
>Somewhat mindful of this, Kamijou quickly flipped through the contents. The stamps seemed to certify that Kamijou had been to Saipan and Guam before. Had he gone overseas with his parents before?
>tfw I live on Saipan
We have that every now and then. I don't wish for another 1-2 year sentence of it.
This thread started pretty badly, OP post and pic is meh.
Even so, I still can't see a single lone Beetle unit defeating Mikoto, Mugino or Gunha.
You're underestimating Level 5s.
Not him, but the guy's arm is normal so there is no reason for Mugino not to shoot off his arm. Now, if she blew off his head...
Only the helmets of Equ.DarkMatter are made of Dark Matter.
The suits didn't actually fight her, but it was stated that even their wings could deflect Meltdowner beams at her current state.
But Ladylee only has one magical doll and the other one is an android.
This isn't a "who beats who" chart. Beetle's strength lies in their durability. From those three, a full-power Meltdowner beam would probably be the only thing that can pierce through them.
I bet Mugino would have whooped up on those Equ.Dark Matter soldiers if she would have burned off Takitsubo's vag earlier. It would probably have made her think "Oh shit, what am I doing" and brought her back to reality a bit. I mean, it would probably have made her recall memories of poor Frenda.
Takitsubo would get to be a help again for the team, although it would be somewhat worse than taking Body Crystal.
Mugino was shooting down Kakine contructs pretty easily.
Gunha sure, but I don't know if Mikoto or Mugino would fair well against it. I'm just wary of Dark Matter.
How would DM Beetles fair against other people around it's current position? That's certainly a factor in his placement.
Kakine wasn't even trying to defend himself. Mugino in vol 15 didn't even leave a scratch on Kakine.
Kakine wasn't ever trying though. He said as much.
I bet he could deflect it, he just has to concentrate a denser amount of DM to a certain place.
Man I wish Terra got more than one fight.
And how do you know that those beetles would have been completely impervious to Mikoto or Mugino's attacks?
I think you guys are giving those things way too much credit. They were nothing more than disposable pawns. They had nowhere near the level of power the main body controlled.
Will we ever see her again? Please don't tell me the answer is never ;_;
This leads me to another subject: Is Mugino growing? She seems better in general than in her earlier fights. I think she may be undergoing an Accelerator affect, where she starts thinking much better/more creatively about her power and isn't going full retard in fights any more. The fact that Kakine mentioned that "he didn't know how much she had grown" is intriguing, even if it was just a slight.
After blowing off your arm and almost self-destructing, I'm sure she's taken a different outlook. She was pretty calm fighting Teitoku who was clearly stronger.
Man, I am really hyped for NT10.
the shitstorm over the spoilers is going to be glorious
Just as Mikoto and Mugino are no where near the level of Kakine in general. I just dont see either of them managing to critically damage a DM construct before they get wrecked by DM. I mean, they don't really have a defense against it, other than trying to dodge. Unless Mugino's shield is strong enough to withstand a DM assault.
Alright, then, you show me. Where does a Beetle unit show any level of power greater than that of a Level 5?
Where does a Beetle unit show that it would definitely be able to tank a Level 5's attacks?
You forgot to correct Carissa being Third Princess.
She was mentioned in NT9 in the perfect world
>yfw she has her robot arm turn into a transforming arm cannon
That doesn't count.
I meant, will she show up in person ever again?
Of course she'll just be one of those girls that are against Touma, the ones who just used him as a means to better themselves. They put him up on a pedestal and believed him to a perfect hero for their own comfort.
She's dead Jim.
DM itself is on another level to most Level5s, comparably It's not really about having more power than Mugino or Mikoto, it's just that they really cant defend against it.
Technically, Beetle 05 was tanking multiple DM shots from the Beetles who are still connected. And if we are talking about Beetles in general, than there is no way for Mugino and Mikoto to win because the beetle would infinitely regenerate and have infinite DM if it;s still connected to the network. They would lose no matter what eventually just through attrition. I thought we were only considering Beetle 5 specifically.
And really, where does it show that it can't tank atleast one Level 5 shot? The only evidence is Mugino taking down some Kakine clones (which might not be as DM heavy as a Beetle), and even then Kakine quite literally said he didn't even have to try against her and Accel because he had infinite resource and couldnt be killed. Considering that it was also outright said that Equ. DM's wings could deflect meltdowner shots, and a Beetle's body is made of that shit, it stands to reason that they could theoretically tank a few shots before succumbing. I really cant say the same for Mugino and Mikoto.
There are 7 level 5s.
Equ.Dark Matter tanked a severely weakened Mugino's hits.
And my argument is that the Beetle units are shitty mass-produced pawns that probably don't even have a hundredth of the main body's power.
Not everything a Level 5 does is equal. Just as Mikoto can fire off a tiny static bolt that wouldn't even harm a mouse, the only greatest feat those beetle units showed was the ability to withstand hits from their own kind.
the beetle is also pretty damn resourceful also, if you want to take that into account. nigga faking trains and shit.
Are you implying Level 5s aren't resourceful?
Was Mugino's power output even gimped? I thought he aim was just shit at that point and Rikou had to course correct.
Also, there is no "Main Body".
All of them were Kakine, yes, but even so, the one that was fighting Accelerator and Mugino was clearly significantly superior to the others.
>you'll never make Mugino a salmon bento
>you'll never eat a Vento Bento with casual Vento
This is some fucking slenderman bullshit. 3spooky5me
Though, the 2nd is kill
The beetles were shooting at each other at point blank and they didn't even sustain any visible damage until much later when they were all just focused on 05.
All that really shows is that their offensive capabilities are inferior to their defensive capabilities. That doesn't necessarily mean that they're invulnerable; it could just mean that their offensive power is comparatively shit.
I don't really see Kakine making what he clearly viewed as disposable mass-produced pawns that powerful either.
At best, I'd theorize that a single Beetle unit as maybe a little stronger than the average Level 4.
>Mugino will never make you a French loli bento
Where is STUDY
>French loli bento
Make 1 normal and 1 for (special whatever)
A single Beetle is an immortal construct that has infinite amounts of wonky matter that actively shits all over physics. There really isnt a Level 4 that compares. Like at all.
The Darkness was too DEEP to be on the chart
Mugino literally grew a loli via baking.
It's been awhile since we had a good ol' lolification. Maybe he thought doing two in one novel was too much.
>implying the Fairy Spell won't turn Othinus into a loli
>All that really shows is that their offensive capabilities are inferior to their defensive capabilities.
Nope. Their shots were powerful enough to create dangerous, life-threatening, shockwaves and push each other back. Each of their shots should be around half or a third of the power of Mikoto's railgun.
Question regarding the novels. havent started reading yet
the NT novels are sort of a second series that takes place after the other novels?
And here's a direct quote for a better image of their power:
>They have at least the firepower of a tank and they have a vector control technique to delicately manipulate shockwaves.
I'd leave Exterior/Force Connect or whatever Mikoto alone for now. Honestly, that whole section of the chart where Exterior is now/Kakine/Accelerator (up to black wings)/saints/Thor/Birdway with Double Jesus/Curtana/John's Pen just above is the trickiest part by far.
It could honestly be spread out a bit more if it was possible to do.
The novels are continuous actually, just some shit happens around there.
It's a direct continuation. There isn't even a timeskip. The only reason why it was renamed and renumbered was because "the number of volumes was getting too high".
Think of it as a second season of the Index novels and all the other SS novels are OVAs.
I see thanks.
Soon ill get my own english copy's then i can finally start reading. I hate reading on either PC or a small phone.
Still think the author should have started naming the books differently after the first one.
How much do we see of index herself after 3/4 novels further.
Index has the second highest screentime pre-NT, but being a non-combatant, she doesn't participate much in battles.
ye english copies. Ill send in the PDF's into indesign ill make book layouts from it and after that ill send it to Blurb and they make the book for me for only 10 euro.
Here is an example of my monogatari books
Index is just kind of around. A little late though to change the name.
Mikoto kind of feels forced sometimes in NT, especially lately.
Touma/Index/Mikoto with Freyja was neat though.
Fuck, that's pretty cool.
Beware though there are still a few volumes with dreadful translations.
here is an example of my fate/zero novels
Ye thanks for the heads up.
Like which ones for example?
So far ive seen a couple of translations in my books that i missed before I orderded them.
A few in c3 and as well in Hidan no aria
Shit you printing all those yourself? Looks like you're using proper cover art as well. How do you format the translations and what printer do you go through?
He's says he uses indesign or whatever for layouts and Blurb to print.
>Like which ones for example?
I can't remember which offhand and also can't remember where you look on bakatsuki to see who did the translations for each volume. js06 is the best translator, all his stuff is solid.
Ill get most of my covers from this website if the scans dont include them already. Like most do thankfully
I recently used these for the kodomo no jikan manga volumes http://manga.joentjuh.nl/series/1930/
Hm thanks I rather have consistent translations then stuff done by 3/4 different groups
>Hm thanks I rather have consistent translations then stuff done by 3/4 different groups
It's just some of the stuff 13 and lower by other people I think now. Some of that was retranslated. The stuff higher than that is good.
Ok well ive seen the series so i care a little less about the first novels still want them though But maybe in time the others will also get retranslated considering how popular it is. But Index isnt first on the list of getting printed. so many more to work on to get it done for printing ;_;
To bad fan-translations never get on the same level as for example yenpress
js06 is pretty damn good for a fan translator and he works pretty quickly. Kamachi does have a writing style that you need to get used to though.
Kamachi fans are spoiled as fuck for translations
Awsome he also translated Ichiban Ushiro no Daimaou and horizon in the middle of nowhere.
You make me curious what do you mean with spoiled?
js06 is very fast and very good
You don't see translations out in one week for most series
>You make me curious what do you mean with spoiled?
Really good translations and LNs are done in like 3 weeks or less usually.
also everything available gets translated, which is kind of amazing seeing how much shit kamachi churns out
the anime adaptation was not very good to be honest. they should all be reread if you really like the series, but some volumes especially like Deep Blood and Angel's Fall. there are other things that are pretty crucial to the story as a whole that they just skipped also.
JC Staff sucks.
I dont really dislike JC staff they did a decent job on many adaptions while others were just plain and plain bad. So far what ive read they did a decent job on index. As well for a few others like shana and Zero.
But thats with all adaptions of books they tend to let out small details that makes the story even more intresting.
In the first season they cut out half of two books - Deep Blood and Angel Fall and one third of another - Three Stories
In the second season they adapted the missing third of Three Stories and another 7 books, plus cut half of another book - SS1. The pacing and animation was mostly awful
The could never figure out how to work in Touma's internal monologue, which is pretty crucial.
This is the shit that makes his memory loss seem inconsequential when you watch the anime. It wasn't ever visited in the anime other than him seeing that photograph at his parent's place.
Animation was great if you ask me but i can see where you are getting the pacing part from.
When season 2 arrived all of the sudden war / nuns and more of that stuff it didnt really go through a fluent transistion.
I see well im looking forward to it but ill go trough the books 1 by one and index is number 4 on the list so.
I already know that im going to be really really mad about that part when amnesia hits him.
Same thing with the death of frenda ;_;
I rewatched Tsuchimikado's fight with Oriana and that was pretty cringe-worthy
Animation was great if you ask me but i can see where you are getting the pacing part from.
When season 2 arrived all of the sudden war / nuns and more of that stuff it didnt really go through a fluent transistion.
I see well im looking forward to reading all the novels but ive got other books from other series to read first before ill start on making my index copy's. Index is number 4 on the list.
I already know that im going to be really really mad about that part when amnesia hits him.
Same thing with the death of frenda ;_;
It takes him quite awhile to come to terms with the memory loss. It was a struggle that the anime just skipped.
Im wondering just what did he lose? All previous fights with the church and espers and stuff or relations with other characters.
Does he have a different view now on how people should live correctly?
ill hope someday he remembers everything again.
Im still mad they pulled that off
He lost his memories in the first novel, so basically just his interaction with Index, Kanzaki, Stiyl, Mikoto, all his friends, and his family.
He actually acts pretty much the same though. Before memory loss he wanted to save Mikoto from those thugs and wanted desparately to save Index from the memory wipe. It's congruent to how he acts post-wipe.
But, Touma himself doesn't know that.
what? In the first novel?
Why didnt that come up in the anime? I always thought the amnesia came up around the later novels
I think he acts a bit differently. He seemed to be a hero of sorts before mindwipe as well, but never one that got overly involved, like with the Level Upper thing, where he saved Mikoto and the kid but didn't give a shit what was the cause of the accident.
He loses his memories at the end of the first arc, when John Pen's feathers fall on his head
It did come up in the anime. That feather that hit Touma in the head after he took Index out of John's Pen mode did it. At the hospital afterwards Touma lied to Index about remembering her. The frog-faced doctor asked him if he did the right thing.
It shows up in the anime if I remember correctly. He was lying when he said he pretended to lose his memories to Index. That whole incident with John Pen's feathers fried some of Touma's brain cells.
>I think he acts a bit differently. He seemed to be a hero of sorts before mindwipe as well, but never one that got overly involved, like with the Level Upper thing, where he saved Mikoto and the kid but didn't give a shit what was the cause of the accident.
That's true I suppose. He did try to save Mikoto from some thugs though, so he had that in him at least somewhat.
So, question time.
With Umidori being WORST's Plaything for a large chunk of the Hawaii invasion arc, Was Worst just being a bitch or do you think Umidori deserved it?
So, have you guys said Happy Birthday to Mami yet?
>Raildex anons greet Mami happy birthday
>Nanoha and Symphogear fags don't care for Nana Mizuki , who's mostly the reason why their shows get a lot of budget and people watching
You see , I'm kind of jealous of you guys.
Oh , happy birthday tô Kawada and have a nice thread , guys.
Both and it was glorious
When does the OTP finally kiss?
Mikoto doesn't smell as nice as Othinus, so probably never.
>“Then we just need to stuff her in a bag or something. She’s small to begin with and her arms can be detached. We can make her pretty compact if we need to.”
I loved pretty much every single thing that happened to her in that arc. She goes from being an incredibly dangerous esper to being a joke character ranting on about "mah darkness"
She's one of the best fringe characters in NT. She had some good interactions with Saiai also.
And then on the street with Worst, Umidori, and Saiai.
Better go find Etzali, cause she'll never get the T
>The usually cool girl may have suddenly shouted “Trans☆form!!” and made a strange pose
I thought only her arms and a few internal organs were robotic, how'd Worst get her so say stuff?
Thor with Mjölnir boost: 2 km long arc fusion blades.
Mikoto forced connection: Destroy the whole of AC plus probably a large part of Tokyo in an instant.
Plus, if Thor's arc fusion blades are blocked, it hurts him. And I'm pretty sure Mikoto is one of the few people capable of blocking them.
Who has better punches, GUTS or Touman?
Gunha has more variety in his punches, but damn there's something satisfying about OP people being brought down to normal and experiencing pain from a regular punch.
added* if he did the right thing by lying to her about his memory loss
TouMAN always for me. Watching him take down overpowered people and ending the conflict usually with a normal punch to the face never gets old for me.
I don't think uncontrolled carnage makes someone go up on those charts much. That form of Mikoto might be able to block it, who knows since they'll never clash.
The big problem is that Exterior Mikoto is uncontrolled. Where do you place someone like that? It's hard to do. We need more information.
Gunha's punches explode.
Is there any doubt?
You forgot that they can also put out fires
Gunha got he power, but Touma got the speech punch.
HOW CAN YOU VALUE THE SPEECH?
Speech punches are so fucking satisfying.
/r/ing Touma vs Zapatos for best speech.
Are you saying Gunha doesn't do the speech thing? Sure they aren't as good, and tend to revolve around explaining how the other person lacks guts, but he does them.
I really wasn't sure who you meant until I googled it.
Best speech indeed.
Gunha's speeches lack something. They don't lack GUTS, but they lack that Touma flavor.
Gunha tells people they're not living their life with enough guts.
Touma tells people they are not living their life correctly and backs it up with his reasoning.
I think it's that reasoning tailored to each character that's missing. Gunha doesn't give enough of a shit to think of anything beyond guts while Touma at least explains why they're fucking idiots.
Gunha is an annoying one-trick character. He's great in small doses, but fuck, he'd be awful if he appeared more.
Gunha is like Guy from Naruto or FRKZ Bang from Blazblue fighting game. Shit's fun in really small doses, but holy fuck does it get annoying fast.
That's why he seems so great.
He never appears when it's boring, he comes in and it's all business, all the time.
No-one meets him at a cafe.
There's no scene where he's trying to buy a rice cooker.
He doesn't have some stupid headcrab to look after.
He arrives, things explode. That's just how he is and that's how it should remain.
Have they had sex yet?
Yep. Haven't you read New Testament: Reborn yet?
literally the most annoying thing in fighting game history.
You should reread it because that's the opposite of what happened. Never forget.
Who would win?
Type: Mosquito or Gungnir Othinus?
>There's no scene where he's trying to buy a rice cooker.
I would watch the fuck out of an episode of Gunha dealing with the slut brigade.
Hard to say. Othinus can remade worlds and use conceptual weapon. On other hand we don't saw full scope of Mosquito powers and it can held some nasty tricks in his sleeves.
>Destroy the whole of AC plus probably a large part of Tokyo in an instant.
Except she hasn't yet.
>mfw I started reading the novels
Holy shit you guys, I was missing out. These things are fun as fuck.
He was trying to save the thugs from Mikoto. Unless you're talking about the flashback from the Railgun manga where they first met.
We keep trying to spread the word man but people just keep spouting things about Nagaispace and Season 3.
Theoretically, she'd be even stronger if she could control it. My prediction is Will-tan will help her gain control and turn this power on Mitori/Gensei.
I've been planning to start so I might as well ask: Should I read all of them or just skip straight to Volume 14 after watching the anime?
Obviously I'd get more info by reading them all, but is it really worth the extra few thousand pages?
>dead Raildex thread
I'm disappointed in you, /a/
Translation in the early volumes is much shittier. That said, I'd at least skim through them.
Which Raildex do you reckon has the tightest ass?
I think Lessar's a contender
There's nothing new to talk about (apart from Unlucky's updated chart), which is why we're usually in the archive at times like this anyway. But seeing as how this thread needed to have the pastebin code slapped onto it by someone else at a later point I'm not surprised.
There is no new content to discuss. Half of the discussion was powerlevel discussion concerning the new strength chart
All we need is some new fresh topics. There are some unique questions popping up every hour that liven up the conversation. Right now the most recent things are the power chart and the new Amakusa chapter translation from the last thread.
Lessar looks so stupid. I would fuck her though.
She's looser than Kamachi's science.
It's been happening like this for about a month now.
It's getting pretty ridiculous.
Why does Fairy Othinus come a little above Success Othinus again, I thought at the end of NT9 the fairy spell was working like it was supposed to and borking her magic god powers rather than acting as a 100% failure slant like she used it as for a bit.
But she hasn't fucked anyone yet. She wants the T
What mosquito is that? I assume the Type: doesn't meant it's a TM Aristotles.
100% Failure > 50/50, even if it's killing her. Remember, 100% Failure did that crazy crossbow shit.
The picture for Fairy Othinus comes from the end after she already stuck them back where they came from and was rapidly turning powerless though.
She still could have won against almost the entire world in that state. It explicitly says so. It would take her hours to die even if she didn't fight back.
I thought 50/50 Othinus was the one below that connects to Success Othinus? Given that if Success Othinus means a 50/50 Othinus that lucked out, that would have to mean any Othinus below that would be a 50/50 Othinus who didn't. But a 50/50 Othinus who failed ought to be worse than useless. But then Gungnir Othinus is above that.
tl;dr I know what Gungnir Othinus is but what is a Success Othinus and what is a mere Othinus
The 50/50 is separate from regular Othinus. She's still powerful as fuck even without 50/50. If the 50/50 thing was all she had, we would have to put one at the bottom of the chart to represent her fuck up.
>Mikoto is wearing a male Pikachu costume
The gender split bullshit didn't come until gen IV anyway. People will always associate Pikachu with the undented tail.
And NT9 finally dropped off the sales rankings. Worst selling NT confirmed.
Japs have shit taste, more news at 10
As expected. Shit volume = shit sales. Japs have a perfect taste, too much suffering and Shittinus.
Another season of Index incoming
Low sales = more promotions
And JC Staff thought they could get away with not making any more seasons. Looks like all those horse sacrifices are paying off.
Japan has good taste when things I like are popular, and has shit taste when things I don't like are not.
>and has shit taste when things I don't like are.
>The Index manga artist is a Himegami shipper
I bet he just loved drawing that
That's one bad crack pairing
the fuck is up with her leg
Christ, the manga is still so far behind.
>touma's one big chance to get laid
he blew it
I hate this arc
I had forgotten about this scene
I had forgotten about this character.
Every time you make fun of Himegami you delay Index III another day
I think Index manga Index is the cutest Index
Which Index do you think is the cutest Index
No Index is the cutest Index
Aogami does make a cute Index
Volume 4 Index is the cutest Index.
When I first watched the first episode of Angel Fall I thought two things
"Whoever did character design for this series wasn't having a very good day" and
"Freud would have a field day"
Then plot happened and the arc got a lot less funny
Then I read the book and the funny went back with Kanzaki giving Touma a boner
>Misaka Imouto in a naked apron
I can't handle this.
Index really should never take off her habit
There best be some more Kazakiri in NT10. Aleister's gonna make a comeback, right?
But that implies he's behind, anon. Everything is keikaku, keikaku is everything.
> Laura's hairstyle on the left
The Japs planned it. They knew what had to be done.
please tell me this is canon
they're my favorite characters and I want them to be fronds
I haven't started the LNs yet
That specifically isn't
But they're kinda pals as of NT
After Accel got most of the edgy out of him, they are on much better terms.
Not quite friends yet though.
your pic except in the anime gave me hope that they'd be bros
Accel's tsundere way of saying "I hope you don't die either" kinda got me hyped
>tfw my hair is getting to be as long as Accelerator's hair in your pic but I don't know if I can go much longer without a haircut because I can't keep it out of my eyes
I suspect he uses vectors to keep his hair in the perfect position.
They do fight another time after that though
I don't mind that. The re-done version of their original fight in Railgun S blew my mind.
>Fremea and Sphinx NTR Index
But that fight is basically a "Why didn't Touma-senpai notice me?"
Reminder that Febli > Fremea
feel free to call me on my bullshit, but in my mind Accelerator is older
>“I don’t know what you’re trying to protect, nor do I know what you have been hurt by. But, if you want to protect that child then do so with your chest held high!! Here and now, be proud in knowing that you are protecting her!! This is your life right? Then decide for yourself!! If you want to protect everything with your hands then do so, if you want to abandon everything then do so. But, what do you yourself want to do right now?! Can you really be satisfied giving your most important thing to someone else that you don’t really understand?!”
What's the best TouMAN fight speech, /a/?
I know "You're not living your life correctly" is funny and all but seriously
It bothers me was not a fight speech
>It bothers me was not a fight speech
Gonna have to go with Touma proving Fiamma wrong then, along with him telling off Shiage for being an asshole, him getting to the heart of Vento's problems was pretty good too
>better than anything
Graduation SS implies they're the same age.
>“It wasn’t on the level of all humanity living on this planet and it may have looked insignificant when viewed from a satellite or something else looking down on the planet, but I have saved it. It may be insignificant or whatever, but I have seen the instant at which one person’s ‘world’ is saved.”
>“Someone who says he will save the world cannot protect the world.”
And I also like this one.
Anime Saten is the greatest Raildex girl.
Forgot the last line:
>“Our world is not so weak that it needs to be saved by a bastard like that.”
Does the "I've caught up to you, Gremlin" mini-speach count?
>"If I fought a normal magician, I’d normally lose."
Touma and Accel are both relatively friendly with Hamazura (Accel is as friendly as he ever is at least), but they're not all that friendly with eachother. All their conversations are short and to the point. I got kind of a chilly tone from it honestly.
>better than anything
Better than Kamashit.
I was late to the party, anyone know which newest volume just got translated? A side story volume or something?
All 4 parody volumes got translated, plus chapter 6 of Amakusa SS and NT9.
Jesus fuck, to think we still have to endure the entire Queen of the Adriatic arc before things get mildly interesting
>yfw Index manga ends right at the same moment Index II did
Man that would be the ultimate "fuck you" to the fans.
Unless they replaced it with a magic side manga or something.
Remember when we joked with this?
>"You didn't like NT9? Well fuck you, Index manga is kill then"
>It ends right before the penalty game.
Fuyukawa's Index is pretty cute.
Accelerator has a total of one friend. And that's Mikoto in a parallel universe.
If that necromancy chick doesn't die, he will have a total of 2
Necromancer with a belt fetish seems perfect for Accelerator.
I can't wait until she tries to bring back all of the Misaka sisters who died, and instead causes the zombie apocolypse comprized of flesh eating electric middle schoolers.
She'll die. And for maximum edge she'll die by Acceleration
And for maximum suffering, Accelerator must save the world by killing all of them again.
But then Accelerator would end up fulfilling the original level 6 shift idea by killing a bunch of level 5 Misakas.
Let's kick the suffering even higher. They stalk Touma and eat most of his friends, but can't bring themselves to touch him because they get embarassed.
Touma can't kill them either because he's just a normal high school boy trying to survive the zombiri apocolypse
Would they count as vampires?
Himegami will still be irrelevant, but she will survive because the zombiris never notice she is there.
All according to keikaku
Index will eat Touma. And he won't even realize she's a zombie.
Himegami will hide in a well and become the Sadako she was always meant to be.
Daily reminder that the Will of the MISAKA network is in Touma's harem.
I assume absolutely everything is going to keikaku.
You don't need to remind us the obvious.
Which by extension means all the Sisters are.
Touma takes all of the Sister's virginity when?
Magic is powered by legends, right?
How exactly are you suppose to destroy all of those legends?
What do you mean?
Isn't that what Crowley wants to do, get rid of the source of magic?
He just has to take LO's. The network does the rest.
Nah. High concentrations of AIM make magicians explode into a geyser of blood when they try to use magic, so Crowley wants to use the Sisters to spread AIM all over the world. Then all the magicians will either give up their powers or die.
Course that's just Tsuchi guessing, and is probably only one part of the plan. He also wants to surpass Level 6 or something.
I'm wondering how often he could have sex with each one without dying from exhaustion.
I'm sure AC Science has an answer.
Didn't Othinus say something along the lines of "what Crowley is trying to do is something beyond even my power"?
Spreading aim all over the globe wouldn't be beyond Othinus.
Well yeah, but that's a different part of keikaku. I was just talking about the part where Crowley gets rid of the magic.
>High concentrations of AIM
Not exactly. The artificial heaven needs to be manifested, which is what causes the change in the laws thereby making the normal methods for refining magic power harmful. AIM by itself is harmless, regardless of the concentration.
biribiri bump bump
If she has some inkling of what Crowley's trying to do, then why hasn't she tried to stop him yet?
What happened? Was the last episode crazy of something?
Presumably she figured borderline omnipotence would be enough. Plus it's never stated she actually gives a shit about him.
I don't know. Maybe you should have asked IN THE FUCKING STICKY instead of a Raildex general.
best rack in raildex
The faggots are making too many of their cancerous threads
Too bad it's fake.
Are you high?
too big and floppy
WORST best sister.
>yfw gangan announces another index comic
>yfw it adapts the side stories
How would you feel about this?
Like Kamachi is going to have a heart attack eventually if he keeps piling on the work.
>having heart attacks
So why do people consider the LNs the best narrative for the story? While it has the most information it is pretty painfully bland not being able to transcribe faces to the characters from pictures/images.
It doesn't have the overwhelming detail that sucks people into actual novels and it doesn't have the imagery that sucks people into animes/mangas.
I watched the anime, then read the manga, and then tried to get into the LNs ... it was a really horrid experience.
You mean overheat?
Issue was probably the translations of the early volumes. They're pretty horrid.
The later volumes have much better translations courtesy of js06, and the imagery is translated much better.
Nah man. You just need to add some coolant.
>Finally an episode happens that isn't fucking dumb as fuck or just plain bad writing
>KLK fans freak the fuck out about how "Trigger saved Anime"
Fuck, some days I really hate you /a/.
Will someone die in NT10?
We don''t read, we feel.
Ollerus' pride will die.
Ah okay, maybe that was it then. Guess I'll just try and power through the first 10 or so LNs.
Thanks for the heads-up.
Yeah, Othinus, thus demon lord Touma will rise.
Why doesn't Orsola have clothes on?
js06 starts doing the majority of the translating at volume 12, and continues from there (except for 16, which you'll notice is a major drop in translation quality compared to 15 and 17).
You can check this if you want to see specifics.
Js started at 12 I think
Maybe some of the gremlin members.
That's because chinese to english translations.
Hopefully that bitch Mikoto
>chinese to english
That's part of it, but understanding English sentence structure also helps.
Better question is, will NT10 be better than NT9? Will Kamachi be able to write a climax that does it justice? The climax is most of the times the best part of a story, but I can't see it being better than NT9.
>The climax is most of the times the best part of a story
Depends on the style. For example, Touma's suffering and rant was the fucking icing on the cake for me. I also like Zaregoto because of the lead-ups to obvious but sudden changes in the narrator's mindset rather than the culprit-snatching.
finished NT9 and touma's kind of a little bitch. thought better of him before.
lol you really trolled the thread bro
you are worse than the mikoto people
Expecting anyone to make it through all that and still be able to be completely good morally speaking is asking a little much.
Killing Accelerator's only friend. I like it.
So where has Sylvia been?
She's probably on her way to save Ollerus' stupid ass.
No doubt in my mind that she is going to be part of the boss rush in NT10 trying to get revenge on Othinus for turning Ollerus into a bloody mess.
Hel may be the first truly unattractive Raildex girl.
fiamma the third wheel
Haimura will find a way to make her sexy.
Get the fuck out
But Anon, the Nagai version is unattractive.
I wish I had a Misaka Imouto as a roommate.
Why they dedicated a bit to Touma at the end?
Because he's the best girl
They regret not making him playable.
Because it has Kamikoto.
Because he's the most popular assist character by far. Touma carries a certain weight to him. Even if he's not as popular as Mikoto or Kirito, he's still pretty big.
Just seeing him in play might give people more incentive to try this game out.
Because he's the assist character that we deserve but not the one we need right now.
He beat Kirito for 2013 in the polls actually.
Mikoto beat everyone though.
You know, I'm pretty neutral towards Mikoto. I'm more of an Itsuwa man. But I gotta admit, it's pretty fucking impressive that she still hasn't been dethroned.
Has there ever been a LN character with this comparable of a streak?
So guys having not checked /a/ for a while, How edgy is the Accelerator manga?
Hilariously edgy. It's the only reason to read it really.
You know how Accel becomes less edgy later?
This is set before his edge goes down even a tiny bit.
Keep it away from small children, to reduce risk of cuts.
Just read this part. Best use of vector manipulation ever. Bet Touma wishes he could do that sometimes.
Don't believe so.
The pettanko tsundere pikachu will probably stay on top for quite some time.
If SAO does well this year she'll probably be dethroned. Raildex is obviously losing popularity based on the lower anime and LN sales.
Same thing has happened Sao-wise as far as I know.
More likely the main girls of Yahari will go for it.
Plus she might start losing popularity with the fanbase itself. With Othinus and Will-tan becoming heavy hitters, having the most positive reactions ever seen in the fanbase, let's see if she can remain as most popular.
Eh. She kept her Most Popular Female status even when she had barely any appearances.
She didn't have competitors though.
Nah, they are just the new fad because they starred in the most recent volume. She'll probably be dethroned, but not by any character in raildex.
But SAO is getting another shitty season
Othinus' heavy popularity is primarily a western thing.
She has a lot of fans in Japan too, but it's nowhere near enough to dethrone Mikoto yet.
Don't let a vocal minority trick you into thinking that Othinus and Will-chan are actually popular. Remember when everyone was gushing over Itsuwa, then Lessar, then Birdway and then Misaki? They'll be all over the next new girl in a few novels.
Misaki still remains highly popular, though. She ranked 13th in the LN ranking and is still spawning a shitload of doujins.
What does the moon say?
The pleasure of being cummed inside by Touma.
Misaka imouto wants to make chocolate but can't, so Touma offers to let her use his kitchen.
Which Touma would never do, because fuck that misfortune flag.
What's cooler, Vento's Divine Punishment or the Queen of the Adriatic Sea?
Who's hotter, Accelerator or Stiyl?
Poor Touma. Even if he wanted to invite a girl into his room, he knows that it would just cause a series of misfortunes ending with him getting bitten, electrocuted or both.
stiyl, accel without his shirt on is disgusting
>you will never have an Imouto as a wife
>you will never have to see her life an accelerated life cycle, dying well before you do
>you will never experience the anguish of having her die before you & the pain of dealing with that she is gone physically
>you will never be relieved of this pain by one day having an imouto come to your house and your wife imouto speaking to you through her that she greatly enjoyed the time spent together and that it's ok to move on because she will always be with you
>you'll never feel the hurt return when her voice finally disappears into the will of the network never to return but know the pain is lessened because you know she's not gone
I'm going to burn for laughing at that
So, what horrible thing's gonna happen to Touma once this is all over?
So I'm currently lurking in over a dozen threads and I see our resident Misaka hater is...working in one of them. That guy has mental issues.
Retention. Time to enjoy the company of classmate Biri for three years!
Anything bad will be eased every night by Othinus on his bed. He has earned something good in exchange for all the shit he has suffered, at least.
He is going to lose his memories again.
Index will playfully bite him!
He will lose his current memories, but regain his old ones.
When everyone tries to explain what happened he will just laugh and say that they can't fool him with silly stories like that
I see he is in here as well. Ugh.
Go back to lurking
I was in that too. That guy samefag shitpost and BS so hard, his goal essentially is to tire out his opponents until they get fed up with him.
He samefags like whoa. That's the real issue.
How would be V-day for Accel and WORST ?
Did they at least hold hands?
Now, that's a nice couple for le snow umbrella meme
It's the same as every other day but last order is more forceful about going places
>both of them smirking maniacally
But can Touma really beat Index?
Every single time he went up against her it's always been a one-sided loss.
Her fangs are just too much for him...!
How does Touma feed bottomless Index well enough? Where is his money coming from?
Speaking of Index, what do you think the chances of Laura using her remote control to attack Touma in the boos rush are?
Or do you think she's going to hold that in reserve for her own plan?
I know the powers that be in the city are keeping it under wraps but how long does he think he can go without people recognizing the IB?
Eventually someone will see him as the guy who can beat level 5s and want to test their strength, much like the people challenging accelerator.
Sneak attack with a baseball bat and CLONK, another trip to the hospital.
He doesn't exactly go around fighting Espers all that often. What's there for anyone to fight out?
>"Hey, that's the guy who beat Fiamma of the Right!"
>"...Who the hell's 'Fiamma of the Right'?"
>"...I. I dunno."
He has Kumokawa and Tsuchimikado working under covers possibly protecting him, and at least two level 5s who'd wreck anyone trying to bat him to death
I bet Mikoto stalks him 24/7 just to make sure he's safe
>Someone tries to attack him with a bat
>yfw it's Saten
she is obsessive and fucked in the head enough to stalk
She probably memorized his electrical signature and uses it for her bio-electric stimulation at night.
She doesn't want the T. She wants the T for England. She personally doesn't care for the T outside of time invested.
>obsessive and fucked in the head
low quality bite.jpg
She's definitely obsessive. I don't know about fucked in the head though.
I hope the next novel shows which people who likes Touma for Touma not because he has the Imagine Breaker or some hero.
>She's definitely obsessive
>Want more Gunha because he's awesome
>More Gunha ruins his awesomeness
I don't even know what I want any more
He's pretty much incapable of holding a conversation with much of anyone.
He's also completely lacking of self-awareness.
That's a recipe for disaster when it comes to writing a character. That's probably why we'll never get more of him. He's the perfect example of a walking trope without an ounce of depth.
>Replying to him
Come on, guys.
>She personally doesn't care for the T outside of time invested.
She's a lesbian like the rest of New Light. She's pretty much a hero for being willing to take the T for country.
Woops. We let it 404. There wasn't much more to talk about anyways.
If someone who isn't aware of the archives makes a Raildex related thread, don't bother posting the archive code until there's some sort of update like manga spoilers or announcements.
Happy Valentines Day Raildex general.
I hope you all get chocolate from 10,000+ girls.
This was kind of interesting. It's about the Occult in japan and even a bit about Aleister.
Do you think Kamachi takes part in this?
Happy Valentines Day you wonderful faggots
>During this time, a big occult figure emerged.
>Aleister Crowley, who triggered a paradigm shift in Western esotericism.
>Before, everybody imagined old guys in robes, shooting fire from their hands.
>But Aleister Crowley changed that image.
>He was interested in Eastern practices like yoga, which he integrated into his beliefs.
>He was into magic you can perform.
>Especially ways of honing the body, like yoga.
Goddammit Kamachi. Why haven't you done any of the magic girls like Kanzaki doing yoga yet?
Or sex rituals.
Are sentient machines capable of performing magic?
They would probably need to use an external source of mana, but if they had that then I don't see why not.
>yfw OT Touma is an assist character in Fighting Climax but NT Touma is the playable character
Depends on whether machines are considered to have lifeforce.
If not, they'd need to be supplied with it.
Now that I think about it, you'd basically need a magic side version of Rensa. Bandolls, anyone?
Aleister is a UMD.
>Railgun BD Vol. 7 finally comes out.
>Necessarius SS wasn't scanned.
Why would nice things ever happen?
Japs are too scared to be charged with piracy because of lots more crackdowns recently
Happy Birthday US
>Dengeki Bunko fighting game playing with Tomoka with Touma as assist
>Female announcer: "Wait, Kamijou-san, no matter how flat Mikoto is, I didn't think you were a lolicon..."
>Male announcer: "No, but see, Kamijou-san is EVERYONE'S ally!"
>playable Touma never
>Index III never
>NT10 not on april
>casual vento never
Does that really happen?
>the female announcer keeps on referring to Touma and Mikoto as a married couple
T-Thank you anon
Nothing could be more satisfying than seeing Misaka lose the Touma bowl with how much everyone ships them despite how one-sided it is
Kamachi doing the scenario when?
Who wins? http://2d.moe.hm/index/img/index5825.png
There won't be a romantic conclusion. Kamachi simply doesn't have the balls to make Touma choose or reject a girl.
That's because the moment he chooses a girl the sales will heavily drop... with the exception of Mikoto.
The moment those two become an official couple, the Japs will buy the LNs like there's no tomorrow and I will forever hate them for it. I like her but they are obsessed with Mikoto to the point that the other female characters barely get the spotlight as much.
I like how Kamachi reuses a paragraph to refer to Touma being killed in the first world Othinus made with getting a holiday to later refer to Othinus getting killed in Touma's original world.
What is this?
Another one of those obscure video games that uses properties from Raildex like Pangya using Saten etc.
The Toaru Kagaku no Railgun S official visual book will include a Blu-ray OVA titled "Daiji na Koto wa Zenbu Sentou ni Osowatta" (All Important Things Have Been Learned in the Hot Bath) and will be released on March 27, 2014. There is no further information at this time, but the title suggests the story will take place at a hot bath (sentou).
It's not Index III but it'll do.
Can't wait to see more of the goddess Saten-sama.
I hope you like Saten and oishii~ keeki
Who's going to buy Mikoto's shorts?
Jap girls don't look good at all. Clothing's too loose.
Also 10 pairs.
TheGreatEye here, sorry guys, I can't contribute to the wiki and to the Raildex General here. Herald if you're here then take care.
Who and who?
Trackback to before mid-late 2012. They are both long-time Raildex wikia editors.
So at this point all we have to talk about in the near future are the Accel and Railgun manga scans and the Railgun S BD special right?
I remember somebody mentioning that nothing specific was going to be done for the 10th anniversary of the LN series in April so I assume May 10th will be the release date for NT10 based on release dates in the last few years.
>implying it won't be a surprise anniversary
>yfw it is another Raildex week: NT10, Index III, new Raildex vidya, a new parody novel, Railgun manga is finally out of namek, Accel mangaka finally learns how to draw faces, Touma becomes a playable character in Fighting Climax, Nagai is arrested for pedophelia, Kamachi finally reveals himself as the author of several shounen series, and casual vento
Some of these are hilarious, others hilariously bad.
>no Touma with best girl Will
I will dream this tonight for you anon.
Why is Accelerator wearing a top hat and suit? Is he a magician now?
Looks like a Karneval character.
Not half bad.
A Very Merry Half-Birthday to You!
This can only mean that Mugino is the Queen of Hearts.
>Index III never because JC Staff doesn't have the balls to kill of a very marketable cute girl
And I was right. But would Hamazura be the King of Hearts?
This looks gay.
Accel looks pretty good as the Mad Hatter.
Railgun spoilers in 3 days.
Thank fucking god. I was dying without Toaru.
How much of the chapter will be wasted focusing on Kuroko vs Mitori?
All of it.
Kuroko is going to save the day and you know it
Fuck you for reminding me Fuyukawa does that.
Okay. What's all this about a possible Accel anime? It seems too early for one. I'm smelling fake. Holy Othinus, I just want Index III instead of all these spin-offs.
Turns out it's fake.
Did Kongou put on the wrong shirt after fucking Accelerator?
Explain Kongou having his shirt then.
oh god how did that ever happen.
I'll be shipping them from now on.
Kuroko also appears to be wearing Frenda's outfit, you can see her hair plus the blue shirt and white skirt on the right.
Great a new crack pair. What should we call them?
Accelgou? (Accel Go)
Now I want to see Saiai in Accelerator's shirt. Just the shirt.
I get it, since they're both dead
They're both homos for the MC of their respective series.
S-Sure. You do the code and shit.
