The cake is a lie. It wasn't because of sheer effort but because the materials used on her development were cheap and because the brainwaves can create a mental network to spread AIM field around the world. She is a good publicity for low level espers and newcomers to AC.

well, I'm not sure about the cost of juice, but I'm pretty sure its equivalent to giving someone a tenner for a can of coke.


I imagine it looks like this:

There says curtana second. I can't remember right now if Curtana Original was supposed to look the same as the Curtana Second; but if so that would explain why there is no artwork at all about the original. Or does Kamachi expect us to just look at the actual existent Curtana and use our imaginations based on that?

I think the main reason why Mikoto was chosen for DNA sample is the fact that her power can be used to create the Network and thus her clones are far more useful as well as cheaper for mass production.

Curtana Second is just a replica of Curtana Original it obviously has to have the same look .

So, if Index walking church is meant to replicate the defensive mechanism of any high level chapel, does that means that she is walking around cosplaying as a cathedral? No. It can be a different.

I know that we might very had that the same Curtanas might look the same, but since second one was created after the first one was lost, I assumed that there it might be some differences between them, that's pretty much all; they were trying to imitate the functions of the Curtana, so something might have needed to be different here and there or something?.

Changing topic, after some temporary cache problems baka tsuki updated and now has the complete chapter 2.

After that realization, I think that I have a better sense of respect for Hamazura.

Toaru protagonists tend to undermine their accomplishments


Touma - “Does a Level 0 like me really seem that incredible?!"

Accelerator - "I'm just not fit to be a hero."

Shiage - "A supporting character like me is unable to finish everything like a hero!"

No, she said it was a replica of the Holy Mantle of Turin.

Humility, is the quality that our series heroes have and makes them special.

EDIT: About Lessar and Touma... lets just say the author leaves that scene open to the reader interpretation.

Ah, by the way, can the editors for Nmaster999 please kindly note some common errors on the discussion page of the chapters? This is for the translator to learn so that he can work on his English. Thanks in advance.

Also, I will greatly appreciate it if you can do that for my chapters as well.

Kamijou Touma first references her during the Volume 1 Chapter 3 Part 4. While trying to convince Kanzaki Kaori to let Academy City help Index, he tells her that there's a Level 5 at Tokiwadai that could extract people's memories by just touching them.
Hint 1: Touma used to know the 5th level 5.
Hint 2: Mental Out's execution seems to need to touch in order to work.

Well... yeah... to be honest I didn't expected much from that artist nor the character looking itself, actually I'm more interested on her personality and probable past (linked with Touma maybe?) AND I demand to see her on Haimura Kiyotaka's style .

So we have Miss (Food-eating bee) (Manipulator and implorer). Honestly, the first time I saw her name, I thought she would look like Kirishima Shouko.

Well, who knows what happens if Kiyotaka Haimura decides to draw her with Oriana's figure...

@wilfriback

Not necessary, my impression is that everybody more or less knows all the level 5s to some degree, except for the number 6, just because we as viewers have never seen her, doesnt mean nobody else have seen her.

We all had wrong ideas about her because of rumors that others create, not because of anything concrete.

@teh ping

is it because of the 'shouko' in her name? same here

God better help Touma if she has the same personality.

Speaking of which, seeing how they finally released her identity now, I'm guessing she'll appear in NT soon...

Aw crap, I pity the guy who becomes her victim D:... Touma? Shiage? I don't think about Accelerator being pwned by mental powers otherwise it would have been used by the higher ups a long time ago.

*Don't compute*

You're missing the fact is Touma the one we are talking about .

point taken, any girl that Touma knows is....

but my speculation?

Mikoto - Touma
Mugino - Shiage

Therefore its natural to assume that as the last Level 5 girl,

Misaki - Accelerator

...Maybe she likes the bad boys...

Oi, don't jinx it! We still don't know who the no 6 is. (Though very likely to be incho-san.)
