if they dun rushed and changed some parts, almost half of the season will be on explanations and talks, which will probably affect the popularity of the anime....i guess

I realize after watching this episode that it's not the lack of details that bothers; but it's the lack of emotions being put into the scenes.

For example the despair and frustration of Accelerator when realizing that he cannot save Last Order and has abandon all hope of ever returning back his and her's normal peaceful lives, that should have received more focus in my opinion.

Likewise Index's desperation and Touma's conviction to save Hyouka no matter what deserved at least an emotional music score or something.

They probably rushed on those parts in lieu for the upcoming battle for the two.
Hopefully they add some of said focus for Accelerator in a later episode.

So did Tsuchimikado take out that guy he was fighting?

Don't understand who Heaven Canceler is supposed to be, will he be brought up again?

The Touma and Accelerator interactions on the phone were great. Accelerator seemed to recognize the voice. I want to see a reunion already.

Accelerator just throw a building was awesome. Also epic was his entrance to face off against Kihara. Finally got LO back not just have to take out Kihara.

Found the Misaka part a little random, but at least she got some screen time and is helping. What was Index supposedly asking her on the phone?

Fuse Kazakiri was awesome, but Hyouka looked scary. The 2 fights for next week are set up nicely.

Technically no, Fuse=Kazakiri interrupt the fight by doing her impression of Ramel's Particle Laser Cannon.

Index recognize parts of the Artificial Angel's construct, but because she doesn't understand AIM fields and their structure, she requires Misaka to explain it to her so that she can find the core of the Angel (Last Order) and undo the effects.

Yes, it always amazes me how this guy suddenly shifts from being apathetic to bat-shit crazy in a split second. His voice actor compliments well this crazy trait of his and has been doing a bang up job so far.

And I don't know what's more disturbing: Kazakiri with her angel form, or the fact that Kihara got turned on from seeing his fellow hounds get decimated by Accelerator (though no could really blame him, that grenade move was pretty sweet)

I actually saw the pic yesterday but didn't pay attention to it, thinking it was from some random hentai.

The other highlight of the episode was Accelerator throwing a damn building across the city.
Yeah, both of them are pretty WTF, although for a different reason.

Hmm, I agree the episode feels a bit rushed, although I can still get a general idea of what's going on, and the action scenes are pretty damn cool. I suppose I'll take a look at the LN too, as there seems to be quite a lot of stuff omitted from the episode...

Well JC Staff I now know for who you're rooting, continue this way it pleases me.
Yep, despite Misaka clearly being the one who is much better at protecting herself out of the two of them...

Perfect! 10/10!

- Who's Tsuchimikado fighting with?! B.C. magic?!

- Touma talks with Accelerator without any of them knowing who the other side is!

- Accelerator attacks the main building of Academy City! And no effect!

- Aleister is SCARY! Really everybody else are just small fries to him!

- Vento is having a really bad time.

- FUSE KAZAKIRI!!!

- That's the Mikoto I know! Destroy, 3rd Level 5!

- Index is going to save her precious friend.

- Accelerator attacks Kihara again! Bringing a gun was a good idea. He is learning!

- I expected Fuse Kazakiri to be a better sight. Damn, what those guys have done to her?!

It seems that finally science and magic sides are really clashing; something that I've been waiting for so long!

Pardon my ignorance, but what is an ahegao...

As for Kazakiri V 13 appearance, well, here's the novel illustration.

From danbooru:

Quote:
アヘ顔, where 顔 (_kao_) means face.

2ch/pixiv term for the weird face occasionally seen in H-games and much more in neta images. Canonically, ahegao has eyes rolled up, mouth open and tongue sticking out, like so: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S1FwGF4Y0Vk#t=02m05s

The English equivalent is usually fucked_silly.

Out of a sudden, I felt like I shouldn't have asked...

Anyone else thought 'DYNAMIC ENTRY!' when Accelerator entered Kihara's hideout?

So has everything they've shown us up until now been a setup JUST for this arc? It certainly seems this way. All the little people, places, and so on were just tiny portions of this arc?

Which I'm loving by the way. ALOT

Sort of. You can say that the entire season was a build up for this.

Since the previous episodes felt like they were going at a reasonable/slowish pace, the past few episodes feel really quick. I don't know whether to think of this as Academy City suddenly being attacked, no-one knows exactly what's going on so it will feel like everything is coming thick and fast, or whether to think of it as the staff trying to cram in the best parts of this arc (which seems like all events up to now have been leading up to this) into the amount of episodes they have left.
It really is an awesome arc though. Accelerator throws a building (and hopefully does a little better in the next fight against Kihara) and Fuse Kazakiri (who I'd forgotten about, what even happened to her?) is now an artificial angel or something with Last Order as it's core?
Crazy.

I would really love to read this but (not sure if I can mention here) the novels on baka-tsuki haven't been fully translated before the 7th one.

Index so far has been mainly buildup for the later light novels.

I'm still pissed off about Accel throwing a building instead of energy from the earth's rotation and about SATANIC not being used as an insert song (even though it would have been perfect).

I do agree that the thing the anime lacks is the conveying of emotions. When I was reading volume 13 for the first time, I was like ";_; NOOOO ACCEL" in that alleyway scene and "OMFG HELL YES" when he fired energy from the earth's rotation at the windowless building. Here, it's just...meh. The anime rushes things too much for the scenes to have any impact.

Also, to clear things up, Accel and Touma did not know the identity of the other person on the phone.

Season 1 covers volumes 1-6 so there isn't really a need to read them first. I do recommend reading volumes 12 and 13 because they're epic, though.
