Can he still make plasma bombs anymore later in the novels?
He listened to Eye of the Tiger and started working out.

He didn't gain Touma-level durability. Far from it. It's just that he wanted to save Last Order so much that he reacted purely on willpower alone. He was practically gasping for breath when Amata was beating the living daylights out of him.

He started to fight with a more hands-on approach primarily because of two reasons - He was chasing after an image of Touma as a hero and all Touma did was punch and punch... so he adopted that trademark of going up close and personal to punch their lights out like Touma.

And besides, with Vector Change, going up close and personal is dangerous for the enemy, not him. He's nigh untouchable as it is.

The other reason is probably because he's trying to invent new ways of using his powers. You might never know when you'd need the experience.

He does, in fact, attempt to make plasma against Amata (In the LN, I think) but Amata disrupts the calculations so he stopped once he figured out that 'channeling spells can be interrupted'.

And not to mention with Accel having only half his previous calculation ability thanks to the Misaka Network, he may not be able to spam plasma bombs all day.

He realized after fighting Amata that he can no longer rely that much on his powers, so he took up Firearms training. He can still use his calculation abilities even without activating Vector Change, thus he has the potential to have 100% accuracy with firearms.

Granted, Accel's choker electrode lets him use his powers 15 minutes at a time since the day he was Brought Down To Normal, but he cranked it up to last for 30 minutes, and then by WW3, reduced power consumption by 90% so he can go esper mode MUCH longer.

And that's not all. With Accel gaining the potential to use magic without the usual side effects, it would be a sin to fight him now.

Reducing the consumption of something by 90% would mean that something last nearly 100 times more than it did before. That would mean that Accelerator can go into ESP mode... A full week without stopping or something?

I don't know from where that idea came from, but from what I remember reading on the novel absolutely nothing has been stated to even remotely hint that the Accelerator tweaked his electrode; the closest he "has done" is creating a power source from an electrical socket that allowed him to recharge himself (and that still implied absolutely no tweaking of the electrode at all.

In fact, during NT1 he is worried about electricity consumption from his electrode after a short chase; that easily means that the time duration of the electrode is not 30^9.

I always thought that Accelerator tweaking his electrode was a stupid concept, since it most likely requires him to take it off or turn it off in order to achieve that (hence, he has to do it while he is a vegetable).

The 90% choker thing was a mistranslation -- go check Volume 20-21.

Aside the mistranslation, 90% consumption reduction would mean 10 times the duration, not 100... just saying.

Well, yeah, it was actually the GROUP technicians who cranked the electrode for it to last for 30 minutes instead of the normal 15.

And yeah, if 90% power consumption reduction increases the operating time 10 times, that would be 30 * 10 = 300 minutes = 5 hours!

Wow. But still, he can't activate Vector Change permanently. And I mean, seriously, if Accel can go Esper Mode for up to 5 hours, but with his Game Breaker ability, no normal guy could last 5 minutes or even 5 seconds against him.

Is there any chance of Index LN getting licensed in the future?( I'm sure this had been asked man times)
I am very pleased with BT but I would like to buy it so much.

Moonrunes edition is out of the question obviously. The cost of shipping is equal to the worth of 4-5 LN's and I can't read it so it's a bit pointless.

It is impossible. American licensing companies do not license novels which are as long as Index.

Plus there isn't a market for it. Honestly, who the hell wants to be seen reading such literary masterpiece as Index? Sorry, I don't want to be a virgin forever.

I've just finished watching all the Toaru Majutsu No Index anime and loved it.

Now I'm a huge Mikoto fan and started watching Toaru Kagaku No Railgun last night. XD

Anyway my question, in S1E18 "Replica", after their fight,Touma and the bested Unabara Mitsuki double talk.

Unabara asks Touma to protect Mikoto for him and she overhears what he says.

Do we know what he actually said? I don't recall the anime ever mentioning it, is it revealed in the Light Novel?

Nope, the Light Novel never revealed the exact words that Touma said and left it up to our imaginations

So indecisive!

D=

Well I gather that he must have said she meant something to him at least.

By what the Unabara double said regarding his answer being "the worst he could expect" and Mikoto's reaction.

Ha... Been a while since I've like a certain pairing so much before. XD

I need to play the game thats from if that is indeed from a game.

A question though, I've been reading Index LNs and am starting New Testament. I was wondering if anyone with experience about releases could tell me how long it usually takes for a volume to release and be translated.

(side note, I read all the novels on an ereader and if anyone else got a cheap one that cant increase font on pdfs, I have almost all of them set up with 22 font so its readable. If any1 wants them send me a pm)
