>First Impressions on A Certain Magical Index 2
October 9, 2010 4 Comments
For those not familiar with A certain magical index, the story is set around a city mainly filled with students who study to become superhuman beings, espers if you will, a world where science and magic co-exist. The main character, Touma, is a level 0 ranked psychic, as he doesn’t possess any special abilities other than having his right hand capable of canceling out other abilities. One day, he finds a nun holding a memory of 103,000 magical texts, Index, hanging over his apartment balcony window, on the run from the Church of England. What follows for the rest of the series is Touma and Index getting caught into many exciting battles. Most notably, the fight between Touma and Accelerator, a level 5 psychic, was purely an excellent battle to see.
|Season 2 needs more of this.|

Index’s new OP and ED are excellent as well. Great music, and hints given at some new characters to be introduced later in the series. One thing I noticed in the OP, is that Accelerator is on a crutch, the result of his last risky endeavors to save Last Order from the last season. Points to the creators for putting in small detail like that. The animation is nice and sleek, voice acting is top notch. I really don’t have many complaints so far, but since it’s only the first episode, it might be too soon to say so. Still, I expect this season to be as great as the first. My most anticipated show of the season, started today.
