I can't imagine Accelerator with Usui's type of character. If we're going by seiyuu jokes, it'll be Accel and Touma both vying for Seiri's affections, which is weird, to say the least...

I haven't read any of the novels or kept up with spoilers concerning "what should be happening", so I didn't have any expectations. I had a blast watching this episode. It conveyed nicely that all sorts of stuff happens while the main character is doing his routine. There was fanservice, the were plenty of funny character moments, they even set up the plot without endless exposition recitals. I really liked it.

I can see that people are disappointed when personal favorite scenes get cut (I had the same experience with plenty of other series), but from a non-readers perspective, I thought the Remnant arc and now this episode did plenty of things right.

All I seen this episode was boobs, so it was an awesome episode. I cracked up when Touma answered yes when asked about the kiss...

Well, with the health products, won't you think that Seiri would be saying 'Onegai, please can you keep my secret?'

Heh. The Mikoto/Touma antics never fail to crack me up. From their parents overhearing them talk about their "penalty" game to Kuroko becoming enraged after seeing Touma getting pampered after the Borrowed Item race.

I can already guess where this is going. Next stop = awkward meeting with the parents and Touma losing his penalty game because he's too busy saving the world/city/random person, existence, and/or stray animal?

I like where this is going... I'll probably spare myself novel spoilers for a while, the stuff that was posted as being cut out, I don't really mind for now.
And the little side-moments: Misaka-no-okaasan and Kamijou-no-otousan, perhaps it is a genetic attraction between bloodlines
And Aisa actually has some lines!

Kuroko's reaction to the indirect kiss was awesome. Touma's luck that Tokiwadai's ace would be featured on the big screen at that moment.

Oh wow now I got the VA joke. If they push through it Accelarator might just come in to tease Fukiyose ) imagine how that would work. And Touma's actually Fukiyose's childhood friend who went to the mountains and came back to find her love... only to find a nun in his apartment and a middle schooler stalking him....

I didn't know Index was this complicated.

Missed Kuroko's rant though with Uiharu worrying about her.

Damn it, Touma! Don't cry!! DON'T YOU DARE DO IT!!! Oh wait, he did.


Knowing that JC staff likes to work with people that they're familiar with, expect to see some familiar names.

Bring on gender equality, for the punches that Touma and Accelerator gives the girls in the previous 2 arcs, Seiri repaided Touma with 2 of her own.

well touma's and accel's VA have been putted together in lots of animes, and the character situations are very different to be considered a seiyuu joke.

on another note, when touma and Co. entered the field i could almost hear touma saying "just who the hell you think we are!?".

Thank goodness i haven't read the novel so i wouldn't be complaining of what they got rid of since i enjoyed this episode very much.

I love the Touma x Mikoto and Touma x Seiri moments especially the latter since it reminds me of Maid sama.

Now on seeing zenisely's avatar, it reminds me of what Kuroko did in this episode. Someone please make a GIF for it? I'll fund it.

I know what it is, pal. But, it is better if you could put away of your petty complains on its anime series for cutting short of the LN's plots into the anime version for a while, will ya? Cause J.C. are doing this in the anime as a so-called summary of the LN. Like Suzuku said, so do the season 1. Meaning that J.C. did the same in season 2 as they did in season 1.

I gave it a 9/10. maybe the correct one was 9.5/10 because I really enjoyed this episode but desperately wanted to see what happens next because they didn't show much serious things this time.

Best parts of this episode:

1) Fukiyose Seiri! She is just GREAT!!!

2) Komoe-sensei caring for her students!

That part when Touma and Mikoto's parents met was also good. This new magician (or should I call her ero-magician?!) seems interesting as well.

Seiri and Komoe took the episode for me.

Well Seeing Touma troubled all the time is quite nice. Sakuya Remilia = Kuroko Oneesama

Anyway, I gave it a 10/10.

Mizusu (Mikoto's mom) is a win indeed, Fenrir. Well we better hope so. Hope that Mikoto will grow as hot as her mom in the future. Damn! I guess both Touma's and Mikoto's dad are a real lucky bastards for able to get their hands to marry a hot wife respectively.

Fukiyose Seiri is a bomb!!!

LOL! Touma is sure a one lucky son of a gun. Honestly, he's the one who stole the show in most of the time with girls. Seriously, he's acting like a hero in this episode. He even got an indirect kiss from Mikoto (leading the jealous Kuroko vow to kill that "barbarian"), got a kiss from Index, and he nearly kissed Seiri.

Man, I love it!!!

As for the Pole Assault part. YEEEEAAAHH! That was magnificently kickass. Especially the Touma's school team's charging brawl. There are like "FOR MOTHER RUSSIA!!!!"
