The episode definitely moved along quickly. Had the first match and even the rematch for Touma before the episode was over. Of course he's left drifting in the ocean and eventually found. While it's like his luck makes sense that having his hand examined by an outside hospital wouldn't be good. No choice, but to take his battered body back. Love the message left by Mikoto as well .

Well another threat to Academy City is taken care of. Geeze the magic side just keeps trying stuff like this. Everything works out fine in the end and Kaori gets another roommate .

Really if Accerator hadn't been surprised by Touma's ability and just stayed back to focus on the long range attacks he would have been fine. Beofre his injury the guy was just ridiculously powerful, which of course makes sense being the strongest level 5. With all the crazy stuff in magic it's the high level espers that reflect what the science side is capable of.

Been awhile since I posted...

Well, Magic side is still boring to me...the only thing that keep me watching this arc is Kugimiya (Even then, it's not like she's voicing a tsundere...). I guess while trying setting up Touma as enemy of the church, they have to show him basically trashing Roman Catholic's plan of destroying the world for their lame reasons...

Kanzaki as fallen angel maid = win, though.

At least we have Misaka and her imoutos back next episode...

I don't understand one thing: why didn't Touma touch the little nun at the end to nullify Wakamoto's magic, instead of sending her away with Orsula?

Because thats the way to negate it, he has to break the originator.

they think half the world is a whole world... no really, it's just the destruction of science and advance technology.

heh, no. It's AC's overwhelmingly advanced technology. That, and the fact that the big boss of science is/used to be the greatest magician of the modern era...

That said, lets not undermine the level 5 too much as they are the ones that have the value to take on armies.

They also somehow think the RCC wants to even destroy any part of humanity besides its science....no idea where they got it from.

Oh, and where's the Muslim, Jewish & Buddhist/Shinto side in all of this?

I want to see Ninja rabbis with water splitting powers!

Just saw this episode... pretty great. of course, one of the high points was that classic Wakamoto overacting. Excellent fight scenes, nice pacing, all in all I can safely give this a perfect score.

Also, it must be said, the scene with the Kanzaki fallen angel maid costume, I was expecting it, but it completely surpassed all my expectations... I'm just happy i was able to see something so wonderful, so very happy...

Muslims were never brought up, There might be some hebrew words thrown, but never the religion as a whole.

Buddism and Shinto were reference quite a fair bit, though never really in the major plots.

But it would be really interesting to see other Abrahamic religions brought up into the series. I mean, some of these faiths like Bahai's, Zoroastrians and Sufi Muslims are pretty mystical and their use of magic in Toaru index would be pretty kickass.

And while most of the churches are European churches, i'd love to see more Science-friendly churches like Episcopelian and Lutheran churches being shown, and maybe as a nod to Red State & Jesus Camp, have characters from right-wing American churches like the Southern Baptist & the Evangelical churches. Imagine all the exorcist-style powers shown from the Southern Baptists in this series. It would be pretty cool.

No, only the strongest Level 5, Accelerator, should be capable of doing something, but in his current state, no.
Also, the things that can match the magicians is the technology with jet fighters, tanks, etc. Espers are just students with powers, it doesn't help the leader of Academy City is the greatest magician ever.

- Jewish: Sherry Cromwell.
- Buddhist/Shinto: Kanzaki Kaori and the Amakusa Church.
- Muslim: Still yet to see.

Here comes to my mind a crossover between D.Gray-man and Index series.
The Black Order (working for the Catholic Church if my memory doesn't fails me) meets the Necessarius/Anglican Church.

Kanzaki and her band are Christian at the core. They just use Shinto looking rituals in their magic and no Buddhist rituals AFAIK

are you sure? judging from what i saw in this season, a level 3 can easily match up with the scrub magicians. put a bunch of them together and well, sport festival anyone?
