The 2D animation and designs from this season, while not exactly awful, per say, have considerably more inconsistencies compared to the second season and the Railgun series. Back at Academy City, Mikoto finally claims her phone straps, while Tōma encounters Misaka 10032, who is searching for Last Order, and buys her a necklace so he can distinguish her from Mikoto. The two are reunited with Stiyl and Index, who are facing against the leader of the Amakusa Catholics,. After helping them, Tōma and Index are about to go to their hotel when two assassins try to kill Orsola, but their attempts are thwarted by Tōma and Index. However, while this model was no doubt successful in getting his work acknowledged, it is also to the detriment of its quality.
When his powers are cut off due to the refusal to help the Skill-Outs, Accelerator decides to head to the university to rescue Misuzu despite spotting Tōma, who also goes there to save Misuzu after she called him to let him know of the situation. Quote from zapppz : Anyone want to recap season 1? Perhaps this is because the anime only had one volume to work Volume 16 so locking the arc to three episodes is actually consistent. Tōma berates Shiage's ideals of trampling over other lives and knocks him out. After determining that the goal of the Amakusas Catholics is to use a special teleport magic to escape with Orsola before midnight, Tōma, Index, Stiyl and the Agnese Forces set up camp at the required location, where Tōma gets into a lot of awkward situations with the group's leader,. As the ceremony begins, Ōma's body and mind is put through excruciating pain trying to access the grimoires. All we end up getting are mostly just poorly conducted fights and pointless, bland dialogue from the characters. While Tōma coincidentally runs into Orsola on the way to save Index, the Amakusa Catholics appear and abduct her via a hole in the ground.
With the British Royal Family arc that followed, the anime again suffers problems with pacing and many characters stuffed together in one place. Most of the fights were just the characters talking, them using their abilities 2 or 3 times and then eventually one of them backed down or got knocked out. Make no mistake, if you are an anime only viewer, confusion will be a common thought. The British Royal arc basically drops him into the magic side of the story without emphasizing its main purpose. Accelerator, and move out of the hospital into 's apartment, while Misaka 10032 and three other Sisters begin rehabilitation in the city. However I just could not get myself to like it for the most part, I know the story from the novel and could barely follow it, I feel sorry for anime only viewers who likely understood nothing through the entire show.
Because Kaori was once an Amakusa Catholic, Stiyl knows he may have to fight her if necessary. While the others fend off against the battle nuns, Tōma confronts Agnese, who attacks him with her Lotus Wand. The show basically displayed his change as if it was propelled solely via the virtue of his growing feelings with a barely memorable support character at least in the Index story , Takitsubo Rikou…. Despite Laura offering to save her if she surrenders, Lidvia refuses and chooses to fall to her death while protecting the Croce di Pietro. She sings a song in order to sever the shackles controlling Last Order, which in turn resonates with Accelerator who awakens as a result and blasts Amata into the sky. While escaping from some of the Amakusa Catholics, Tōma manages to find Orsola and gives her a that Styil gave him earlier. I began watching Index since 2011 and got into the light novels around 2014.
Anyway, now that I cleared that up we can get onto the actual review. I plan to cover it as well, and I choose to believe that it won't let me down in the same way. Meanwhile, as Tōma and Last Order search for Accelerator, they escape from the Hound Dogs chasing after her by hiding in a restaurant where everyone is also unconscious. While Tōma's parents, and , as well as , assumed to be Mikoto's older sister, get to know each other, Tōma and Mikoto decide to make a bet in which the loser does anything the winner wants. Even worse…it can actually be hard to remember the names of the newcomers who are somehow supposed to be important to a particular arc. The voice acting was fine, in all honesty, but the vagueness of the story and plot can have you wondering why, for example, two high-leveled espers in Accelerator and Kakine are just excessively screaming for no particularly good reason or explanation; as a result, it just feels like overcooked displays of emotion. The four of them decide to work together so they may one day take on the higher-ups.
Meanwhile, Tōma goes looking for Index after she went off but witnesses a group of Anti-Skill officers mysteriously falling unconscious before running into Last Order, who asks for his help. I started out really enjoying it for the first few episodes. When the Hound Dogs attempt to kidnap Last Order, Accelerator manages to muster up enough strength to blow her away to safety, before Index, who wanted to return a tissue package to him, appears on the scene. The biggest casualty of this is the characterization. He is neither as idealistic and compassionate as Touma, nor as bloodlusted and insane as Accelerator; in this way, he can be considered as a medium between the two. After defeating her, Ritoku then confronts Accelerator, using a to interfere with the transmitter around his neck.
Ironically, titular Index remains mostly in the background despite having a significant role in the previous seasons. . Of course, that project never reached completion thanks to the intervention of Touma. I suggest actually watching the first season, this is one of the only animes I actually enjoyed. A particular support character I do want to focus on is Hamazura Shiage.
She sends him, along with a group of Catholic battle nuns known as the Agnese Forces, to Japan to search for this grimoire as well as Orsola. While Tōma takes Index to a restaurant for a change of location, it becomes the worst day of his life, when they are attacked by a magician named Ōma Yamisaka, who kidnaps Index and runs off. After Tōma, Stiyl and Tsuchimikado are informed of this, Tōma has lunch with Index, his parents, Mikoto and Misuzu, and is surprised to learn Misuzu is actually Mikoto's mother. Kuroko manages to escape, but becomes concerned over what Awaki had told her, particularly concerning how Mikoto had been trying to stop them for reasons she had kept from her, namely being that if Tree Diagram were rebuilt, the Level 6 Shift experiment would start over again. Staff produced plenty of other good shows in addition to the previous two seasons of Index as well as the two Railgun seasons.
