If I may jest a little, Kuroko (a known pettanko-yuri) gave priority to the two girls with the smallest bust and potential romantic interest

In general, the episode was entertaining; priceless Index VS Mikoto! I also kind of like Cromwell's feminine adaption (though it can be another trap), as for Touma's power, I will abide to the plot device explanation.

Oh, I should not forget, I love Hyoukka (meganekko X oppai). As for how hooking with Touma could work, they can always get a little kinky, none-the-less safe by chaining his hand during intimate moments

Who know, his left hand may became Reality Breaker.
Almost as if you want us to accept anything he does, like if his hand suddenly turned into a rocket punch, we should go "Well, it was a hidden ability~".

It's different from Ars Magna and Dragon Breath which directly affect his brain.
The theory for Telepathy(of that judgement girl) is to create an invincible thread and send the data(in a code form) through it.
It's like playing an invincible thread telephone with each other, and it's seem his right hand affect that thread.
Na~ni, so~re~
JC Staff, banzai~, huh...

See the problems when you start to think this over too seriously?
Actually, I can make sense of that as well, but what I really cant make sense of is how his hand was capable of parrying that golem at the end of the episode. Even if you remove the magic making that part of the golem move, it was still moving, so his arm has a new power to stop inertia.

Like, I can see Toma negating energy as well, but if he gets hit with the railgun, he should be dead. Agh II dunno, that explanation i gave made sense to me, but there are plenty of other things that don't.

Finally, the harem battle begins. An epic rivalry between Index and Mikoto is to be expected, no? (Much to the displeasure of Kuroko. )

So from what I gather, Hyouka is the culmination of various AIM fields that has attained sentience and took on human form, right? But from whose AIM field? Everybody's? Or certain espers, like Touma? Was sort of freaked out at seeing her cute face getting chipped off like that, though was later relieved she somehow regenerated.

BTW, is it me or does Touma look GAR in stopping the golem with just his right hand?

Well if Misha is any indication where various magics colided and created her. Hyoka is the result of various AIM from her school or the city itself. AIM as explained is what Espers gives off.

Seems the higher ups of Academy City knew of her true nature but kept quiet.

Now Nescessarius has a magical theory about her existence. They sent Shery Cromwell to retrieve her. Also informing her of a certain Imagine Breaker.

Nn? Hyouka is the creation of a bunch of... somethings, but Misha is just a human/mage who switched with a fallen angel.

hm i give this eps a 6, average - nothing amazing i liked the interactions between index and buri but honestly that's all that i liked.

seriously why would you remove a level 5 esper from the battle field first... it's not like she's only the most powerful person of the group.

the end scene with touma showing up at the last second was one of those how many times has this happened in this series already????

I agree, and why the hell did Touma let Hyouka just get up and run toward Shelley, let her get hit, and continue to just sit there the whole while?

Hmm... perhaps Touma is a lolicon?! I mean, he never hesitated to sacrifice his body to save Index and biribiri, but the well endowed Hyouka, he just can't risk his life for?

Eh, the only good part of this episode, if it was any good, was probably the confrontation between biribiri and index.

Well you have to understand about a golem's nature first.
There are two kind of magical powers that involve with it.

1.Forming power : a power to form golem itself. this power come from a "core gem" inside it's body. The core gem act like it's power source and that power flow in it's body not coming outside(Same as Styl's Innocentius that had a power souce from the rune around the buliding).
Touma's right hand can destroy the golem only by touch that gem(but he can't since it was cover by golem's body that create from normal rock and earth).

2.Control power : yep The golem is now in manual mode ,so it's need control power from Sherry to act(Of course there is an auto mode too ,You'll see it in next(or last) Ep)).
Touma's right hand touch the control power(that 's like a thin force field around it's body) first and dispel it before touch it's body. So it's stop moving before it's really hit him.

The question is not about how he can stop it at the end of the episode but rather that if it was so damn easy to do it why did he bother dodging like 20x earlier in the episode.

No DYNAMIC ENTRY if he does that.

But yea, i am starting to really like biri biri after being somewhat skeptical at first. Id like to see Himegami play more of a role, she is hilarious. Index is a good entertaining character when she is alone with Toma, but when they are with others I find myself growing tired of her.

The interaction between Index and Biri Biri was quite cute.

I would have really expected Touma's hand to dissolve Hyouka or something, but... nothing.

He has to touch her first. Course he'd labeled a pervert if did. Touma got a good look twice.

Given that the other two knows his modus operandi they won't let him get his hands in her.

He touch her with left hand, so she didn't dissolve. Imagine Breaker power is in his right hand.

I think he haven't touch her with his IB.........yet

edit: defeated by sinner0

Hope to know the reason why Cromwell want's to wage war against academy city in the next episode and what are the other "level 5's" of academy city doing? Guess they don't have any responsibility on protecting the city

For the block part, he didnt block because the golem wasnt in his reach. He also mentions this in the episode but you obviously missed that.

You have to see this from Kurokos PoV. She has to rescue dozens of people that are still trapped underground. She dont has the time to worry about fighting power or whatever, she chose the fastest and easiest way. (Then again she took a lvl5 esper and left a civilian so her decision is kind of weird).

Actually just some kind of advice to some people here, you may or may not follow it:

If the only point or your post in this thread is to rant how bad this show is you might as well not post here. Stop expecting something like Index fighting or Himegami action or whatever since it wont happen. I am seriously tired of reading posts whose only content is "and Index vanished again lol" or "still no Index fighting >_>"
