I look at it as Index is marking her territory. Love bites.

Spoiler for As far as I know, for the characters that already appeared:



Mah, mah... It was a boring explanation episode, but I would wish people keep in mind what was stated this episode (and the previous).
THAT people who have taken supernatural power development CAN'T use MAGIC.
Please keep that in mind and have fun watching the second volume get animated.

Okay, now you're making me worried... Is this infamous Vol 2 really that dreadful ?

If so, is the anime actually going to show it ?

+1 Yes, there's alot of background to wade through in this. It'd be tough to explain it in the middle of some battle.

I guess that rules out magic card tricks with Touma's right hand.

As it is, I'm enjoying the show and its collision of worlds.

Other than sexy outfit, this kanzaki doesn't have anything special yet.
Most popular search for kanzaki on google's still GTO's Kanzaki Urumi

I'm not familiar with the series background, so a bit of explaination didn't bother me. I'm interested to see where this series is going, probably my number 2 series this season after Toradora, and slightly ahead of Tytania, Ef and Clannad.

Should be enough. Compared to Toradora's 2 episode, 100 times better.

Not a child, just appearance

It's not that dreadful. But the problems it has are quite obvious and... not the most pleasant. As expected of a novel written in 17 days.
The anime will definitely show it, since they went all the way to giving super air Himegami and that other guy appearances in the OP. Even though the manga went all the way to skip this entire volume and characters.

Spoiler for some stuff that made vol.2... unfortunate:

Well, i assume it would be harder to block a sword with his hand, regardless if the sword is enhanced or not. It is, after all, a physical object never the less, unlike fire or some other form of energy. I am not sure if Mikoto is going to be popping up, but it should be interesting never the less when she does. Mikoto is quite powerful after all (against anyone but Touma) ... i am quite sure she could take on someone like Magnus relatively easily. If there is one distinctive advantage the esper abilities have over magic, its the fact the former doesn't need any incantations to use and can be wielded at will. So she could zap away while a mage would be busy reciting his prayers. I guess it is versatility (magic) VS more specialized powers and better control.

Looking at the OP again it does seem like blocking her sword would be exceedingly difficult. Thing seems to have a wild attack style and getting his hand on it without the rest of him getting cut up seems tough. Of course if he can't do that then he is toast since that hand is his only card to play.

Really do think the only one that could help him out here is the middle school shocker. She definitely has a lot of firepower at her disposal. Sure Touma can block that, but Kanzaki is another story. Just send her in there with some loose change and this fight can be turned around. Or maybe Touma will amaze and get himself out of this one. Either way looking forward to episode 4.

So this episode was kind of cute with the whole loli livin situation that has occurred and their interactions it still creeps me out that Toma's teacher looks like shes 5 wears a bunny suit for bed and smokes. Anyway what i have really been waiting for is the next episode with so sword wielding badass hot chick. Plus i really want to find out more about Toma's hand i find that more interesting than anything else. Its not magic and its not a special power seems fishy.

Sure seems like a special (esper) power to me, just one that divided by zero.

Firestarter is not allowed to be sympathetic yet, considering how hard he tried to kill Touma for no good reason.

Bunny Index was cute; Yuka Iguchi is doing a good job conveying Index in her cute personality and in her serious one. But out of all the pains to inflict on a guy, I'm not sure if biting or groin attacks are worse. Both leave their pain long after. Liked seeing a bit more of Komoe-sensei, and looking forward to what looks to be a major fight next episode.

I hope the next fight will be good. It will be interesting to see how can he fight the girl with the sword.

This show would be so great if it had a clue how to do exposition in a more fluid way...Getting tired of having it just dropped on me in large clumps meh.

Ah well atleast their was Konoe and abit of index cuteness, so hopefully if they get back to the charm that episode 1 had and less of going off on these tangents of endless talking I can get back to enjoying whole episodes instead of select parts.
