The battle was okay. It's nice to see the fiery colors and then some blend with blue here and there. I know the action is a bit short but I'm sure there's more coming. Oh and Index sounding and talking like a computer is a bit freaky.

If you're constituting this based on the fact that they passed through alot of material, i say it's because there are plot developments that are contained in the first set of chapters in TAMnI(well, this doesn't feel like the kind of story that screws around, so I wouldn't be surprised if it was like this throughout). This wasn't really the case with Toradora.

It's quite frustrating to not able to obtain the novels before the anime started (all the stores I went to were sold out due to the hype by the anime), or I would've commented more.

In any case, just from the anime alone, the fight in this episode was awesome. The flames reminded me of Shana a lot.

Why am I disturbed by Komoe living in a dump full of cigarettes and beer cans? Just how old is this loli? The only other "loli" I can think of who smokes a lot is Akira-sama from Lucky Star.

Hmm, episode one caught my interest in this anime but episode two was kind of boring. The fight scenes were ok and they gave a little bit more information about people born with powers and those who can use magic. However, all that wasn't as interesting because I was hoping for a more mystical or grander explanation.

Ditto. When I saw that scene I was like, "What the hell is with this loli?!".

Second episode was good stuff. The action delivers with great animation (yes i thought of Shana thanks to all those flames), and we have a good look at the life style of the loli teacher. Alcohol and cigarettes, oh my.

The character i've been wanting to see appears at the end. Hopefully she'll have more screentime in episode three.

She's an adult really.

One of the 7 great mysteries of Academy City.

Sigh~ Faux lolis shatters impressions, huh?

Don't forget Nobue from Strawberry Marshmallow anime. She was aged for the anime version and is a chain-smoking, beer guzzling adult who looks like something younger.

Komoe is an adult like the others have said already. The legal age for smoking and alcohol consumption in Japan is 20 IIRC so she's prob older than 20. Not to get OT but was Akira's age ever stated? She's prob at least 20 pretending to be a teen and it could be a silent running gag about her.

Their doors were on fire. They would have been killed if they tried to leave that way. Apartment dwellers have to stay inside. It's called passive escape. The lower floors could have attempted to escape when the extinguishers went on.

I think it is best to treat this as another mistake from the author, along with the incredibly washable ink and the ceiling runes getting wet (and how the clothes don't burn, despite everything else melting)...
I believe there was an explanation that everyone was out because it was summer vacation or something, but it's still pretty hard to believe everyone was out...

Fire safety. See my above post guys. It's not a mistake on the animators part.

Yes and Yes.

Now I'm almost angry as to why Shana and Slayers Revolution didn't have this kind of level of detail to animation, story and writing.

I mean, why? Why only this and not those? I'm seriously a bit peeved off.

Personally I'd wouldn't be going outside with all that fire anyways. Especially on the floors where the door handles were melting .

Adult or not that teacher lives in a dump that's for sure. Pretty entertaining to see the state she leaves it in.

Maybe the fire battle was in an area without adequate sprinkler coverage or Innocens was not in the area long enough to heat the sprinkler to operation levels. The sprinkler itself has to be heated to a specific temperature (165 F) for it to work apparently. I think that Toma manually tripped the sprinklers.
