There are 16 volumes of the novel out:

Spoiler for covers:


There is also one volume out for the manga Toaru Kagaku no Railgun (とある科学の超電磁砲/A Certain Scientific Railgun):



From Neosam's post:

The manga that's serialized in Shounen GanGan is titled To Aru Majutsu no Index (とある魔術の禁書目録), and there's currently 1 volume released of it: (second volume will be released on June 10th, 2008)


Also, a guide(?) to the novel:



Author: Kamachi Kazuma
Illustrator: Haimura Kiyotaka

Translated from JP Wiki:

Quote:

In a world where science clarifies supernatural powers.
In a huge college that has power development in its curriculum.
To a resident high school student, Kamijou Touma, a pure white sister appears.
She calls herself "Index" and says that sorcerers are chasing her.
Thus, Kamijou Touma enters the world of the occult.
The story is set in a world where science=supernatural powers and religion=magic. This is a work that mixes reality and the occult, which seems to be incompatible at first glance. Adopting all type of SF, Academy City is full of over-technological machines, represented as supernatural powers, and the world of religion, full of sorcery like the Bible and alchemy. <--yet another quote from JP wikipedia

------

Never knew this series until now, but I have seen the railgun manga on Amazon before.

The religion part of synopsis is a turn-off, but everything else has potential to be interesting, so this goes on my to-watch list for now. Just hope the religion part isn't stressed... Aah, I hope...
Not going to buy the novels though... 16 is waay too much to buy...


Haha, Neosam posted in the New Animes thread just before I finished making this thread. Nice timing!

Yet on the opposite hand, I see lots of blank stars on Amazon's reader reviews (not that there aren't full 5/5 reviews or anything). :eyebrow:
Then again, in the end, it is best to see and decide for yourself. Or something like that. :heh:

NeoSam 2008-06-04 07:28

Dengeki Bunko is my type of taste in light novels, it rarely dissapoints me :) Shakugan no SHANA, Baccano!, Iriya no Sora, UFO no Natsu, Toradora!, ... I do consider this the best boy's label out of all the boys' labels.

Anyway, its best to wait and see how they'll handle the anime.

Not necessarily a bad thing :P

Read the manga and it was great, so expecting to see this anime too.

Trailer is up

Wow, Touma looks a bit more manlier. The production values looks good so far. Too bad I've only read up to chap 4, so I don't know the other chars :(. Mikoto's Railgun looks really good, my expectations of this anime has increased. Can't wait :D.

It looks excellent!! :hyper-^v^::hyper-^v^::hyper-^v^:
The action looks well animated, Mikoto, and everything pretty much looks awesome. This has just become my most anticipated show for the Fall...
Though I wonder if it is okay for them to show so many spoilers in a trailer...
My only complaint might be that Touma looks a bit too old in a few shots...

Gotta get a Mikoto avatar as soon as possible...

Well Touma sometimes looks older in the Novel as well...

Is it just me or does Index sound too boyish:confused:

Chaos2Frozen 2008-07-07 21:03

Holy cow! The animation quality is a hell-lot more better than I've thought it would be :eek: !


Damn, I can't believe I'm already preparing for my Fall list, when summer just started :heh: Heck, I haven't even started on my new shows yet!

Just like the drama CD, I still feel Index is off somewhere too...


By the way, Sterling, who's Yuyuko? From what?
