Pictures tend to have a bigger impact... Along with sound effects

You named the serie that I was avoiding to name, therefore it became a spoiler.

Hopefully when a mod sees that it won't get deleted since it's not a plot spoiler.

Sheol Fear falls under the same category as Spell Intercept as they are both use non-magic means to screw with their opponent's mind. Sheol (the Hebrew word for 'Hell' or 'Abyss') Fear points out the contradiction of the basis of the religion or theory of magic that has been cast and causes a break down in the enemies mind.

In this case, it basically points out the loopholes or conflicting concepts of Christianity's teachings

Spoiler for explanation from the novel:


Stiyl also adds that effect of this ability is proportional to the 'purity' of the group being affected, meaning if the group's belief are the same, the greater the effect of Sheol Fear. Plus it's easier to brainwash people as a group than an individual.

My only real disapproval is that they made the Battle Nuns look too weak, I mean Named Characters aside, the Amakusa didn't seem to have that much trouble facing the 250 Nuns that had just kicked their asses an hour ago.

It could never realistically live up to my expectations that I have in my head, but the anime did make Touma look pretty badass crashing their party like that, hellbent on saving Orsula no matter what. It wouldn't have the same effect if it was anyone else if it was Kanzaki or Mikoto cause you would know they could handle them.

... But still, some visual and audio exaggeration to pump it up would have been nice.

That's a general problem with Index II for most parts. It doesn't seem to have the 'weight' in its storyboarding, which leads to less-than-could-be-awesome-felt scenes.

Sometimes it can't be helped within time-constraint and budget limitations ( ep3 was one example, they tried to cramp Uragami and Tatemiya into a few minutes at most ), but more times than not, it's really the fault of the how the director and storyboarder fail to bring the 'umph!' to the scene, be it through amazing voice-acting or superior key-timing or expressions.

... Honestly, I actually prefer it if they utilised more 'budget-cutting' measures in the episode rather than the more expensive, but mediocre looking battle animation scenes. Simple cuts like 'nun getting burned and screaming' or 'Touma being bombared by magical beams' would had looked better if they had focused on those scenes for some dramatic effect instead of what was done.

The way they so casually handled Stiyl burning the girls while still having trash talks with Tatemiya, or showing the 'Nuns flailing balls of light towards Touma" kinda ruined the impact those scenes could had held.

An accident.

... A few hours passed since I last popped into this thread and I'm still very, very slow in getting it even after with the pain of "proxy"ing the download to my "server" in the office via remote... and I'm way far from getting able to watch this episode just yet. Sad me is sad.

So if the eardrums destroy how would the senior ranking nun give instruction order to the private nuns?

Probably through visual signals... or they're just so well coordinated that they can perforn as a group without orders, much like a 'silent' drill.

But damn... I'm not sure whether it was because I was wearing earphones,

Spoiler for But:


I honestly jumped in shock. The sound effect at the scene didn't help me much in easing the goosebumps down my back

Most of all, you have to be disciplined and you have to save, even if you hate our current financial system. Because if you don't save, then you're guaranteed to end up with nothing.

Shit, I had goosebumps on that scene...
Though, the rest of the episode was fairly plain, and didn't touch me very much.
At least they removed the comical scenes.

Kyouka did it by accident, but Mapplehurry always will rate this show with a 1/10. The guy hates this show yet still keeps watching it.

Maybe he/she doesn't even watch the show. I don't know.

I can assure you, it's not because of increase in budget...

hmm these "Roman Catholics" surely act like some fanatic cult... not sure what is the message here

Index possessing wide area attacking skill is a bit surprising
