Honestly I'm not sure; Index had already used it's Rockband Star Power for the second season so I doubt it would draw in anyone who wasn't already a fan to begin with.

Because of the mecha design? Somehow I think that's a bit of a stretch

Oh wait, we also have a songstress as well right ?

hahem ... that's just pure coincidences of course, there's no way they'd have made all of that purposely.

Anything that involves Aleister or Aiwass.

You might have more luck if you research volume 7 because it surrounds the [Book of Law] that Aleister Crowley wrote regarding the subject and is in fact the main 'philosophy' which Raildex's Aleister follows... Albeit with some leeway.

But most of the talk on Aeons are external research.

Could someone explain the stuff on Aeons that were not explained in the book to a poor fan such as myself? I never saw any research done on it. I assumed that the Aeon of Osiris referred to God and magic and stuff while the Aeon of Horus referred to Aleister's new laws, but that's all I got. If there is more then please explain. Also, I don't understand how this is related to Egyptian gods. Why Egyptian for starters?

For convenience and simplicity. Also, Crowley was in Egypt when he 'heard the voices of gods and Aiwass'.
Aeon of Horus refers to the shift in which The Man is God. Aeon of Osiris refers to the worship of Dying God. Aeon of Isis is about... actually, most of the talk in Campione! 1 is about what is Aeon of Isis.

Oh, wiki. How do I like to find some meaningless things that can be so amusing. Even though I'm pretty sure that someone else before me pointed it out.

He wrote that he was "dumbfounded about what to do with The Book of the Law" and eventually decided to ignore the instructions that it commanded him to perform, which included taking the Stele of Revealing from the museum, fortifying his own island and translating the Book into all the world's languages.
Three words: Academy City & Grimoires.

I couldn't have simplify it better Especially the part about Campione. The entire 'backstory' of Athena was pretty much Crowley's depiction of the Aeon of Isis transiting into the Aeon of Osiris where the main religions of the World stopped worshiping a 'Motherly' Nurturing Goddess figure, started worshiping a 'Fatherly' Authoritative God figure, eg. Zeus, Odin, Jupiter, GOD.


Anyway the Egyptian Gods were just a name or a label for the Aeons; you could replace them with whatever pagan counterpart and the main idea is still there.

Whenever Miki-san twitts anything about Kamachi, you know it's going to be good...

Basically, Kamachi-san said that it would take a week to get out a draft, but came back in two days with the draft saying it was just a breather and that he was working on a different scenario.

What's the exact translation ? It's always hilarious to read Miki-san's exasperation when dealing with Kamachi's overachieving mentality

Fine fine.

"Kamachi-san and I"

"The draft will be late, so I'll be shutting myself up for a week."
"Understood (Perhaps Kamachi is feeling difficulties. Relieved relieved)"
~Two days later~
"I'll be now sending a different scenario I've finished while I'm taking a breather, ."
「…………うぃーっす(^ω^;)??」

you could say that index is one piece of novel with it being the best selling out there. But still One piece in terms of sells is god mode comparing to other manga and for Index. The average sales of its volume is rather in the upper levels of some novels. The only great thing about index is its number and despite the number of volumes. The quality doesn't drop but instead increases.
