Not the doctor. That was Aureolus himself

Remember how he started "Damn, my Ars Magna has lost its powers... oh no! I must not think so, or *bam*"

Seeing his thought (loss of power) come true, Stiyl rematerialized in his old form right away.

(At least this was my reading of the scene)

Yeah, yeah, that's what I figured, I was just making fun.


This was such a touching scene. Styl's so tsundere for Touma.

Universal health care. Which is pretty much the norm, except for the US.

Ok just trying to put this together right. Stiyl's skin (Geh) came back because the guy thought his power no longer worked. But Touma's hand didn't reattach because it negated what would have reattached it? Or at least I think that's how it worked. Talk about misfortune if that was the case . He's lucky for the Health Care they have. Though must've been one strange situation where Touma showed up in that state.

Still should not have watched this one while eating supper. Skin flying off....This arc was bad for Stiyl. Very disturbing stuff.

I've seen confusing special attacks before, but Aureolous' takes the cake.

Really? I mean, at least he was the one figuring out what Aureolus had planned for Index (Vampirism), and his probing questions about Aureolus' complicated approach were decisive in leading Touma to the right conclusions. If you ask me, I'd say that this episode showed him in a pretty good light overall.

(And I laughed at his late taunt - first, peeling an apple, seemingly for Touma, and then just snatching it away again to eat it by himself) ^_^

I'm not saying Stiyl didn't do some good things here. But seriously getting your skin ripped off would normally make it an overall bad experience. That just sucks.

Definitely without his help Touma wouldn't have figured things out and probably would have died. Took a lot of guts to draw attention to himself with those questions knowing that Aureolus could do just about anything as a response.

Stiyl is a good guy and plenty of fun to watch. He didn't get much fighting action in this. But interactions with Touma were some of the bright spots for the arc.

Come to think of it, i hope each arc ends with Touma in the hospital.

That and his "the floor's cold" were wonderful scenes. He's been a great fun in this series so far, and those scenes just show that. His interaction with Touma is quite the treat.

Was really surprised at the amount of gore in this episode. I mean a bit was shown in last weeks preview, though i wouldn't have expected that much --- at least thought they would have cut down a bit for the DVD release. Either way, i'm glad with the result.

Looks like white haired boy from the OP appears next episode.

This episode was great. Touma and Stiyl double team to mind rape Izzard. Bonus points for Sugita displaying emotion.

And I still managed to get my weekly dose of Index moe. I won't mind to see sparky for some time, I can run on this scene alone for weeks.

I don't think it's farfetch at all Especially seeing who the next Antagonist is

I'm still waiting for the english subs to come out so that I can understand the technical conversations in details, but the final encounter I got the gist of it... Pretty gruesome, but that's how I like my boss fights

Ending the episode with Index and Aisa visiting Touma couldn't have gone better

P.S - Next week begins the much anticipated Mikoto arc... I'm guessing by the end of it we'll be done with the first half of thisseries

Now Touma has more to fret about. Index has a harem. ( 3 guys so far that we know of. You go girl!)

Even better Touma went Alucard on Izzard.

Now all we need is for 4ch and 2ch to get upset and call Index "2nd hand".

I just noticed that Styl retained his ears and nose when he got stripped. That's... interesting.

Spoiler for Gore, blood and ending scenes.:


It was kind of entertaining hearing the alchemist freak out towards the end. I guess I just find it funny hearing Tomokazu Sugita's voice in such a way.
