Thats more then just "slightly" shorter. Index looks like a child and acts like a child. AniDB lists her fetish appeal as lolicon and toarumajutsunoindex.wikia calls her build small and flat chested while having a childlike personality. Its not like im making this stuff up here, the fans see it that way. Dont use excuses such as "oh she's 15 its okay" to prove me wrong if the facts are against you.
Still their height is short, maybe is fine in girls standarts but in overall they are very short, in Japanesse case I'm not sure, but I wouldn't be suprised if Mikoto is "tall" for japanesse when Kaori is japanesse too and is very tall in comparison.
Actually is because of the anime you have this view about Index, it made emphasis on those childish traits and time to time omittes the serious ones. Remember the scene between Index and Touma in the hospital after his fight against Accelerator?

Touma does everything as posible to please Index, and ignoring Index is one things he will never do.

Nah, we go by the joke that Komoe is the subject for immortality.

Too bad they didn't show the mountain of food Index needs to get full.

Shows like the Imouto is unable to get back her goggles, thus a failed "revolution".
She got a heart necklace instead from Touma. Fair trade I think.

Now we just need Kuroko to run into 10032, thinking it's Mikoto, and discovers that Touma has purchased her a heart necklace (which of course 10032 will gush over).

I'm curious what the original light novel scene was for Mikoto and sister.

Super Cuteness mischeviousness worling for Last Order with Touma: Funny.

Misaka not liking M-10039 "honing in" on her Touma territory. There could be trouble !!

Archbishop .. sheesh.. Styl's kind of use to her little girl antics. Give it a rest.

Kanzaki and et all not knowing how to use a modern washing machine.. HUH ?? Did they actually use rocks in the river before this ?

Accelerator. This guy needs some extreme psycho therapy. He's severely broken.

Don't get hung up on ages and appearances with this series - it just makes your brain box hurt...

What a thoroughly delightful episode. This series is like a chemistry experiment that in any given week can either explode or fizzle out, and this week popped.

I thought it was 10032?

Also, what we need now is a scene where Kuroko meets 10032 and assumes it's Mikoto. Notices the heart necklace. Asks who gave it to her.

"Touma" (with appropriate 10032 : expression). Kuroko goes BOOM! 10032 flees from this obviously insane woman.

Kuroko hunts her prey (Touma) intent on violence. Meets Mikoto.

Kuroko "How you could accept the feelings of such a man Onee-sama "

Mikoto "It's not like that- really"

Kuroko "Your necklace is gone You dumped him! Hooray!!!" Kuroko is happy Obviously Onee-sama is too wise to fall into his trap

Mikoto: Necklace? Huh? Oh no! She meet my little sister! I must prevent Kuroko from learning about their existence! (Mikoto imagines the horror if Kuroko learns she has clones).

Mikoto: "Oh no... I... I just decided it was something I should only wear on special occasions"

Kuroko: "Impossible... Onee-sama has already gone so far as to have "special" occasions with him. (Kuroko's mental image is censored, with lots of suggestive moaning in the background).

Mikoto: "You idiot! nothing like that happened."

The two argue as we shift to another scene.

oop !! 10032... I get the two confused. They look so much alike.

Oh yeah... Misaka's "WTH ?" moment when Last Order appears suddenly then runs off and 10032 chases after her: Precious.

I liked it when Touma was trying to think of a way to differentiate the Misaka clones from each other, along with the real Misaka and 10032 begins to take off her skirt. XD It was so funny how she didn't seem to care at all that she was in a public place. I also kinda wished that Touma and Accel could see each other, but... meh...

Maybe she wanted to say "hey look, here's the difference (blue-striped panties!)"

...That's 13cm, take a ruler right now a measure 13cm. That is slightly shorter, less than a head.

Now go back and take a screenshot of Mikoto standing next to Index, their build is almost the same. And please, fans use the word 'loli' to describe every other girl now taht doesn't have breasts in any series, that's almost as reliable as the impression that all animes are hentais.

It's not that the Anime omitted her serious moments, it's the viewers that omits them in their mind.

you can say the author portrait Religious people as denying Science through ignorance because if i remember right Religious people on this anime referred Science as some sort of Religion too

The differences between index and mikoto are that index is shorter, slightly smaller breasts and acts childish. and that ones a strong force in the magic side and the other is a strong side on the science side.

To be fair, this is an Academy City high tech washing machine. It must have been a bit confusing as to how to use it, and Kanzaki just panicked when she realized her obi was going to be ruined.
