Analysis/Theories of the Darkness of the Level Fives:


1. Accelerator: Wanted to be powerful enough so no one would bother him.
2. Kakine Teitoku: Inferiority complex from always being second to someone.
3. Misaka Mikoto: Suicidal guilt over her Sisters being killed.
4. Mugino Shizuri: "Always at the top" snobbish hubris formed from her family situation
5. Shokuhou Misaki: Family problems contributing to mistrust of everyone (hence her forming of a clique).
6. Unknown (Male): Possibly problems from a female relative?
7. Sogiita Gunha: Uhm..... Has nothing but guts?

Maybe if Mikoto wasn't able to gather herself together after the events in the Sisters Arc, she would end up just like Mugino.
Come to think of it, both have a similar materialization of powers and a powerful family background.

About Kakine, someone brought up a quote of something he had said before that had me thinking if he was suppose to represent a 'failed' Accelerator who didn't save Last Order....

About Mugino, it could be anything but given your track record thus far, I would say your is the safe bet

About Misaki, I believe she is meant to contrast Kongou... But that's all atm... I mean, they can't ALL have bad family right ?!

To quote myself from our discussions:

Quote:
I think it's more serious than that: Misaki WANTS Mikoto, but cannot possess the Ace because of her powers not working. It's likely something that goes beyond Kuroko's obsession, and the only reason it hasn't gone yandere is because Misaki is at heart a fragile little girl.

Why did Accelerator join up with the project? It was to basically protect himself. What if what Misaki is doing amounts to trying to escape from the reality of her fragileness, or perhaps family troubles? Think of the Takanashi family for a bit.
Admittedly, my Mental Railgun delusions probably colored the real analysis.

I'm reluctant to strongly agree or disagree but who knows? We might be looking at Yozora-Sena mk II....

...Except in reverse... I think...

I'm also hoping that we get more Mikoto-Misaki interactions. Misaki makes a nice frienemy.

I thought she was meant to contrast Mikoto herself.

Well I went with Kongou because she had the whole 'true friends' character development way, way back... But I'm open to either one.

Oww... yes, the whole pictures on the roof and sniffing a wig.... I can so imagine Misaki doing that (With Mikoto as the unwilling victim)

I think that mihgt have been me, bringing up this quote:

Quote:
“…She actually said no matter how dark or cold the world you are in, she’ll definitely bring you back?”

Kakine said with a face stained by blood.

The reason he attacked Yomikawa isn’t because she was in his way. From the beginning, Kakine’s eyes only had Accelerator. That slight hesitation, the slight hesitation in front of Yomikawa that he will step off the path of evil, was the reason he attacked Yomikawa.

To him, that hesitation, is the obstacle.

If Accelerator has given up evil, then just what has he himself lost to?

Because of that, Kakine Teitoku raged.

That’s impossible! How could it be that easy?! This is our world. This is the end of darkness and despair!! You babble on with fancy words, but at the end of the end, you rely on something like this. This is what you called ascetics?!”

A shattering speech. Lead by rage and ill will, the words that are illogical smashed against Accelerator’s body like blast waves.

In the end you are the same as me, unable to protect anybody. After this many more will die, killed by a mongrel like me. Isn’t that right, Accelerator!! Didn’t you also slaughter your way to where you are now!!”

Kakine shakily stood upright with his body stained by blood and grime.

Well, I wouldn't go so far as to say he is a good person- but rather Evil has Standards.

"Evil with standards" is something that would also fit Deishuu Kaiki from the Monogatari Series, interestingly.

Its just Jan 11. The book has only been out for a day and you expect a translation already -_- be patient. There is no scan yet out in the net and the only other way for it to be translated is if js06 got his copy already and from what I remember he is not living in japan right? I only remember him from hayate in redhawk and translations in mangahelpers.

Unless the Js06 has entered into maintenance period (since vacation is something to human and he has already surpassed this state) we have the volume 6 fully translated until the end of the month. so just relax and enjoy.

Pro-tip; To aru Majutsu no Index is probably the ONLY light novel series that the fans have no right to ask/complaint about translations updates

Well. To be fair, you can't translate something out of thin air, isn't it? IIRC js06 haven't gotten any form of NT6 available in his hands yet. And as far as I recall not even raws are out there in the wild (Internet) yet.

... Actually, Chaos, if you go by that statement, I'd drop the "no complaining about stuff you get for free" bomb anytime on anyone, and not just for Index...
