Probably the character.

Anyway, There are quite a few things wrong on the Raildex pages.

Well, no, wrong isn't the right word. More like misunderstandings.

I'm pretty sure Touma's section needs pruning, secifically some of the IB stuff.

Surprisingly, most of the stuff they put are quite reasonable- the ones I've pointed out either needs a better example or are just misconceptions.

I don't get the impression of outright malice.

It'll be nice if we can first decide on that points I've brought up on Index before moving on the the other 4 protagonists

I figured one:

On the TV tropes page, there is one where says that Touya, the gemstone girl AND Mikoto's father faked their deaths.

Actually thats wrong, its Tanaka-kun, who is Toya's business partner.

**This is an angrysex threesome waiting to happen, this troper thinks.
That must be Mr. Myon or Chaos2Frozen or both together .

I'm not the one who put that up there, but I like to think all four of them got in a shit load of trouble.

Also, it seem Touya really is as unfortunate as his son.

Yeah, I know.

I didn't realise at first, and thought Daddy!Misaka joined them on thier amazing adventures, but then I realised that it wasn't Misaka speaking, but instead Touya had taken a 180 in his optimism.

Still, although in my head I know they weren't together, in my heart I like to think they were.

Nope, only me. The whole angrysex thing was abandoned by Chaos the moment I fucking jumped it like a horny bunny.

I'm inclined to agree... just take a look at the Laconic page on the Index Series:

I've been on TV Tropes Index thread in the Manga and Anime forum, and the majority of people there don't like Index's character at all. Also, there are tons of complaints about how Index is misrepresenting Christianity and a bunch of other stuff.

Well, it's TV Tropes. What can you do?

Ok, gambarimasu--!

Baby Got Back
Maybe a reference to this?

Fan Service Pack:
I remember this, check episode 3, first season, Index and Touma on their way to a bath public and episode... 13 (?) where Index, Aisa and Komoe are on the mentioned place drinking that milk.

Misrepresenting Christianity? Oh boy I wonder what's going on in the Seikon no Qwasar forums... You would think they're used to it by now... You know, being the site where the explanation comes from?

Seriously, that's why I never visit other forums with the exception of Mania just to get the Dvd/BD sales figures. Everywhere outside the borderlines is the wild west.

Could you describe in details? Sorry I don't have my stuff on my at the moment... >.>

The term refers to "When a character, usually a female character, gets made more attractive during the run of a show. Sometimes justified as the actions of puberty, when a younger character (or actress) starts filling out as they grow up. "

When did this happen for Index?

Yup. There was a big argument about it. People were saying how they can't take it seriously because it doesn't represent how real life Christians think, etc

I assume they mean that illustration in Vol.16 when you see Index with Itsuwa and Mikoto in the onsen. She seemed much bigger than before.

Also, they have her under A-Cup Angst. Was she really concerned about her chest size, I can't recall that, though I could be mistaken. Also, she's under Jerk with a Heart of Gold. She certainly doesn't act like a jerk.

Just means you have to sign up. It's pretty easy, you don't need an e-mail or anything.

Oh please, it's like no real life Christians ever lied or are gluttonous.

Either way they're missing the point and we probably shouldn't even be bothered about those people in the first place.

That's possible but somewhat minor, in general her appearance hasn't really changed at all, unless you count the Illustrator's change in style.

I don't think she was, the only time she was concern about that was in Vol 5 where she had Touma swear that seeing her sleeping there he had not 'feelings' what so ever.

Yeah, the [Jerk with a Heart of Gold] definitely isn't suppose to be there.
