Yeah...i'm one

I like Misaka character^^

yeah, except her appearances are more akin to cameos than anything, only once does she get some actual screen time(still little, btw)...

And how is that any different from this season?

uhm, are you serious? this season she actually got directly involved in two arcs(volume 8 and 12-13), and had quite a bit of screen time in another

Spoiler:

Sigh, you know I was trying not to bring up or discuss details on an episode thread where it's obvious most people wouldn't know about events in the future? My point is, do you really have to bring up future events, whether in hints or exclaimations or opinions, in an episode thread? And I know this isn't the first time nor are you the only one doing it.

And for the record even if Mikoto was 'directly involve' in the those arcs of this season, it still doesn't change the amount of script time she gets as those were still small roles in the grand scheme of the individual arc, no more than cameos as you so like to put it. Vol 8 was Kuroko's story, and this current arc is Accelerator and some Touma's story. You can't go two volumes without her appearing in someway, even something like giving important information over a phone can also counts as 'direct involvement' in a vital way related to the arc.

you don't seem to get my point: i'm talking about actual screen time here, as in, how much times and for how much she will show up

and in volume 8 alone, she has more screen time than she gets through volumes 14 to 19, pretty much

Uh, exaggeration much?
Sigh, alright I'm not going down this road again, there's no arguing without needing to bring in all the scenes into the discussion on a episode thread and even then it's fruitless. You're free to keep your opinions of course.

Well, you can move you this discussion to the Indexites especulation thread or light novel thread I guess.

Well guys, forget about watching 22 this week.

More importantly, let us pray for the survivors of the Tokyo quake.

22 can wait as long as Tokyo needs to recover: human lives are more important.

If one should leave this show with learning anything (besides the fact that flat chests are sexier than big ones :P) is that:

A) Real men do cry.
B) Real men are unselfish

and above all

C) REAL men care for other human beings.

Let's do the Touma this week and go out and help someone, people!!

Anybody in need, even if it is as simple as buying a homeless dinner for a night or hugging someone who is in grief.

Even if you can't directly help the victims in Tokyo, with sufficiently numerous acts of kindness, the Lady (or Gentleman) upstairs is bound to notice and help the survivors by the sheer good Kharma generated as a result.

Let's do the Touma and make the world a Better Place!!

Ahhh, have news for you.
I checked my online TV schedule and it says it will be aired as scheduled as well as Gosick.

What can Touma do against a natural disaster? This has Accelerator written all over it

From the second image it appears that he's talking about how much linear velocity was taken from the earth's rotation, which I don't know what he plans to do with because the total kinetic rotational energy of Earth is a factor of angular velocity, not rotational translational. *NOTE 1*

Now, I'm not sure if you're entirely aware of methods of transferring energy, but 1.78x10^24 kJ completely translated into kinetic energy for a slab of concrete (that has a mass of, let's say 1 metric ton or 1000 kg) would be able to make that slab of concrete reach a speed of 1.88x10^12 meters per second. That's right, there's so much energy present, the slab would travel faster than the speed of light. *NOTE 2*

If you remember back to physics 1, you can recall that you can describe energy as the amount of force exerted across a distance. What the the author is claiming here, is that Accelerator exerted enough force on the slab at the initial point, to make its average force across the entire distance to the building equivalent to 5 minutes of Earth's rotational kinetic energy.

Moving on to a mistaken assumption now:


Surely you're aware that even if the slab isn't instantly demolished down to the subatomic level by this initial force, that the 1000kg projectile at such high speeds would cause immediate damage to all surroundings without having to physically touch them. The amount of friction between the air and the slab would be so high the surrounding air molecules would instantly begin to undergo nuclear fission, and the amount of energy bled into the surroundings would instantly heat up the local atmosphere to beyond thermonuclear temperatures. In fact, the amount of energy present in the environment would be high enough to begin small-scale nuclear FUSION between even heavy nuclei atoms, and the amount of environmental destruction resulting from this would be on a scale beyond my imagination. Imagine a gigantic shock wave that propels outwards strong enough to knock skyscrapers over like flimsy paper dominoes, followed by waves of heat so intense that it instantly carbonizes everything it passes. That's the basic gist of a nuclear explosion, now imagine that about 20 billion times more destructive, if that's even possible.

I might be getting carried away though and missing some key-factor in my rough calculations, and I'm sure someone here is willing to point out an error if I've made one. Otherwise I'm inclined to believe that I'm correct and that if Accelerator was a real person, no continent would be safe from his wrath. But as you mentioned, the point is how durable the windowless building is, and we can conclude that it is strong enough to withstand a blast of 20 billion combined nuclear warheads.

*NOTE 1* I see the numbers 1700 km, and 1654 km which are the respective rotational translational speeds of a point of the surface of the Earth. The reason why you can't calculate the total kinetic rotational energy of the Earth with these numbers is because you must factor how much energy it takes to rotate every single particle of mass on the planet, not just the outermost layer.

*NOTE 2* Since it's impossible to travel faster than the speed of light, we have to use relativistic calculations for the velocity of this object, Ek = mc^2(1/(sqrt(1-(v/c)^2)) - 1) or v = c*sqrt(-mc^2/Ek + 1/Ek^2 + 1). The speed of the slab would reach 299,792,450.4 meters per second, which is only 7.6 meters per second slower than the speed of light.
Well the point is that Accelerator warps reality with his AIM field. Physics as we know it doesn't apply to him. If he deems that he wants to control every vector of his attack down to the quantum level such that everything is focused on the Windowless Building instead of a massive bleedout into the surroundings as should be the case, then he will...

If this actually happens in the canon, then alright, I guess Christians are truly things to be feared, and if Aleister Crowley is the kingpin of these things then he's a monster completely out of this world *NOTE*. I feel obliged to inform you however, that you're thinking of the "law" of gravity and the "law" of the universe (if there really is such a thing) in the wrong way. I'd ask you for specific examples that I can read and consider seriously, but if the series really is headed in that direction I'm probably going to end up dropping unfortunately. =( Thanks for giving me very grim prospects of the future.
Light Novel thread. Find Vol 20-22. If high powered characters and epic religious/fantasy stuff are not your cup of tea....you might want to be prepared.

Just up dated my online TV schedule and it seems as if they canceled Toaru and is going to air a special disaster program.
TV Tokyo will still air Gosick though.

Well, the Tsunami hit all up and down northeastern japan, so who knows really. Tokyo I believe is flooded, Narita airport is closed, farmland has been destroyed, families trapped... -_-

I think that one single producing station is a little low on my list of worries.

But if you're worried about the episode, 21 will probably still play- it's 22, 23 and 24 that you have to worry about because the chances of them being fully completed are iffy.
