Totally agree, Komoe sensei needs her own spin off with 2 of her roommates.

Ok, Finally saw the SUB. Gotta say this ep is the second best of the arc so far. The fight was good so i don't have any idea what the complaints are about. The fight music was epic also. Also
zeniselv its not that the blood was better in the last season. It funny how noticed this but so far the animation always seems to be better at night. You'll notice the same thing in season 1 where whenever it was at night the animation was awesome. When MISAKA clone was killed(night). My sig(night) accel fight(night) This season ep 1 (night) ep 7 (night). The animation this ep wasn't bad. Sure there are 2-3 parts where characters look a little diff. Like Duskyra said with komeos big head and same for himegami, but its nothing big.

This arcs eps went like this.

Ep8-Very good animation.
Ep9-Meh
Ep10-Better( clap clap)
Ep11- Much better.

Also as tsunade said. Ep 13 says apostles cross but the preview says otherwise. Any ideas?

okay i know im criticizing too much(and i didnt say anything about the poor direction choices like reminding us of something from 2 eps ago) but its just that compared to first season this one really falls short,thats maybe of OYZ and aniplex having usually good quality standarts(or maybe its because anything with square-enix on the credits sucks nowadays), and about taking this arc as a comedy relief is hard since 50% of the comedy of the novels is not making it to the anime, not complaining about that since i know its cuz time constraints.

dont take me for a hater i love the series, i even consider S1 the best anime ive seen, im just dissapointed that this season havent been on par, and the last episodes really maje jc looks bad.

about the second post, no look at the splatter in toumas face and in this episode komoe, this episode looks plain just like a stain not a aplatter, also you cant see any texture as you do on season 1, about day and nigth, yeah the scenes in the nigth seem better, but compare the figth with etzali, or index vs golem, it still looks great in season 1.

finally next ep is 12 so apostles cross its after that.

Funny since this arc is like the deep blood arc. It probably got some people bored but if they watched the whole thing they'll overall love it. Alot of us novel readers are gonna watch this season throughout till the last second cuz we know what to expect. You say 50% of comedy taken out but to me the comedy was better even within the novels. lol You know, looking for those fun misaka x touma scenes

hey, but the new epic background music never failed to amaze me (especially the part when they're tracking Oriana)...

How can that happen when Touma is the one doing the "kills?"

At least most people who have survived Touma should be grateful he is not Accelerator. Else we'll get a "I have this awesome right hand, so as I stop your stuff from working I'm thinking how to kill you too" Touma.

Well isn't the time for Touma to feel a desire to kill, not yet.

If there is something doesn't fails is the BGM.

Watched the episode on a Friday for once instead of Saturday like usual, when it's come out for once. All I have to say is that I adore you Hinegami, and I hope you get better soon. Really soon.

I, for once, could see the odd animation, but I didn't much care Makes me want to go back and watch the other episodes as well.

I liked how Biri Biri said that the fondue that her mother brought was dangerous to Academic City, surprised Index held back on biting Touma this time.

So Oriana's partner is finally shown, was it Lidvia? well she hasn't done anything yet.
Biri Biri attacking Touma while hugging Index was great. So Sherry is working with Orsola now, its good that they show how past characters are doing, i forgot what they were working on, was it related to the case?

The Tsuchimikado-Oriana fight could have been better, but hen again he can't use too much magic, i liked his bluff, surprising she fell for it.

The final scene was the worst, i definitely hate Oriana after doing that cruel thing to Himegami, just bad luck for her to be mistaken a Necessarious person, looks like Komoe remembered the spell that Index taught her to heal, so hopefully Himegami lives and gets better.

Touma better do something next ep, looked like Lidvia will make a move finally next ep.

On that gif the only thin I can link with Index is Stiyl chasing Touma if he ever tries to be "unlucky" with a girl in front of him.

Anyone else noticed how Touma seems to have inmunity to get dirt?

I think thats impossible Touma facing NaGARsumi and ending alive, its like facing a Saint on "You are already dead" mode .

This episode seemed liked it ended to soon. I wasn't paying attention to the time and I was getting excited thinking about what would happen next and then the credits came up-_-

I'll wait until the HQ version is out before anything.

It seems to me that we've been watch Index episodes as something like a 'checklist', slowly ticking away at stuff that appears and then complain about those that didn't make it

That said, things seem to be moving very fast, have they already solve the mystery of the St Peter's Cross and how it's activated already?! Don't tell me next episode concludes this arc?!

Mah for me I was generally happy the way it turns out, Himegami is a girl that had a low impression of herself as compared to the other girls/person around Touma, hence why she never made a move to trouble him. I'm glad that she got a relatively important role in this arc, even if it comes at a cost. As evil as it sounds, I wanted to see Stiyl forcing Touma man-up to step across Hmiegami's bleeding body to chase after Oriana.

Ah, Misaki's mother making fun of her own daughter's assets, the cruelty. Cheer up Mikoto, at least its in the genes.

Poor Himegami >.<

I don't get it; is it a private joke of the light novel's author or among J.C. Staff that "milk/milk products increases the bust size of teenage girls"? First there was Mii Konori with her Musashi Milk, then now there's Seiri with her constant milk-in-a-box drinking, and now Mikoto's own mother offering her cheese fondue to help with Mikoto's bust size?

Is this just a running gag from the author or is this actually a popular urban legend among young adult women in Japan?

Weekly LN comparison here! There's a lot of important information, so I split it up into two parts.

Stiyl meets Komoe:
Spoiler for volume 10 resumption of hostilities:


Stiyl meets Komoe part 2:
Spoiler for volume 10 resumption of hostilities:


Tsuchimikado vs. Oriana:
Spoiler for volume 10 accidental firing:

Ironically, it is probably tsukimikado's bluff that got himegami hurt. Oriana suddenly got an idea that there are more out there looking for her and thus begin attacking anyone who resembles like an enemy.
