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):

Spoiler for cover:


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)
Spoiler:


Also, a guide(?) to the novel:

Spoiler for cover:


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).
Then again, in the end, it is best to see and decide for yourself. Or something like that.

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.

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 .

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

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


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