Otherwise she would have already gone for the President or anyone else instead off letting the threats run around amok.
Could it be that every world leader has some magical or esper-like protection of some kind? Because if there is a condition for her to control them, couldn't she had manipulated the conditions so the president fall under them?

It's abit more complicated than that since we don't know how it works, there has to be a reason why she doesn't just mind control everyone.

The magician is basically blackmailing people into doing what she wants, my guess is she gambles with the children control them, and tell the parents to do what she says or else. It's probably safe to say that she had one or two kill themselves to prove a point.

GREMLIN fights dirty.

My bet is that the gamble magic has conditions for the magician to always win. If the conditions aren't met, then she's the one that relinquishes control over herself.

Another possibility would be for it to be a literal gamble with a 50% chance to win, but if she uses with people that don't know how to take advantage of winning then she would be safe. If it's like this, then most likely she can only use it once per person.

Anyway, it's good to know that Birdway is not perfect as she had to use a fail safe and she was also bemused about how GREMLIN knew about her plan... I think it's safe to say now that those cameras are the culprit.

I was right, this magician is a b*tch!!

I hope Accel gets his hands on her and tears her apart. But it looks like Robert came to the same conclusions as the others, even if he isn't clued in...He's dangerous alright.

Right so the cameras do serve a purpose

Don't these people know you can't kill Touma with guns ?

Seriously, I've said this before I know, but I really have to wonder what Kamachi thinks of the U.S. Everytime it's mentioned, there's always something about guns in it. Really, man...

But for some reason, I don't remember any "keepin' in the family" jokes about the royals >_>

To be fair, he was like that with Russia in the Shopping Mall district as well. I think in his mindset, if it's outside Japan = Free Guns for civilians. There probably would have been some during the Civil War if the civilians weren't locked up.

Not really; Britain, France and Italy didn't have free guns for civilians.

It's just US and Russia always have these kinds of impression.

America = Right to bear arms
Russia = Lots of missing weapons

EDIT:

A slow crawling update day...

You mean she hasn't tried to jam Accelerator's choker before ?!

She's a troll, not suicidal. Nobody does that and expect to live.

Anyway, it's about time to update Tvtropes. What should I add?

Hmmm, I really thought that's one of the first few modifications Accelerator would have done himself is to try to mitigate that weakness, but in NT1 it seems he still has that problem.

She tried when they had to fight, but she wasn't in top condition so that was a no good.

Even if someone manages to jam Accel's choker, do you think Accelerator will lost with just that?

Ask Kihara.

Then again, Accel hasn't been able to be shown to activate his wings at will. It's more like a last resort when he ran out of energy that time. In fact, I would say that sabotaging the choker would actually increase your chances of getting killed if you're not LO (and the other LO I know just got traded).

Oh, btw, here's the latest viewcount on B-T.

2.Toaru Majutsu no Index ‎(2,598,721 views)
3.Zero no Tsukaima ‎(2,596,647 views)

First is the Main Page, so Toaru has become the most popular project on Baka-Tsuki, more than Haruhi before it was taken down too. (Suzumiya Haruhi - 2563568 times)
