Lol, only saw the Raw but it indeed was fast pacing. They tried to get the epilogue in quick as possible.


Was season 1 rushed like this season?

nope, season 1 had good pacing. It's not rushed at all even though they did cut some scenes. And it happens to be a special scene

but right now. They are inserting all important scene and neglecting some scene and even the pacing itself.

Season 2 is really a bit disappointing for me.

You're only saying that because you've read the translated novel before this season started.

It's all a matter of perspective; we have more novel readers this time around with more knowledge about what goes on in the original. If you had read the novel 1-6 before the start of the first season, you wouldn't be saying that as there were tons of cut materials from the novels.

Guess they wanted to end it here so if the possibility of season 3 happens they start right at 14. Though I dont see the harm in putting SS as an OVA. Stupid Railgun OVA wasn't even good. This season so far made me happy cuz it meant progress for the novels being animated. There wasnt much to expect this season. Though I'd rather hey shorten something else rather than making volume 13 quick. Maybe the Ouma ep was unnecessary.



@Chaos. Not really non novel readers have said the pacing was too fast. Anyone that sees their favorite novel
adapted should expect cuts. But compare 6 volumes in season 1 to 8 in season 2 with an ep that was left out season 1

You do know that season 1 have completely remove two characters? One of them was actually quite central to the plot at hand in the Angel Fall arc.

Do I think Season 2 was fast? Yes. Do I think Season 1 did a better job? No, I put them about equal.

In pacing Season 2 is fast but despite Season 1 was more slow but it wasn't that bad.
If they would have used a better pacing for the Angel Fall things would have fitted better, yes, cutting some talks but keeping the flow of the whole event intact. For example was it necessary for the Sisters arc to be that long? Maybe but there were things that would have better to cut.

This season keeps the majority of the events but the flow is rushed sometimes.

The animation is a serious problem, in comparison Season 1 was solid but with less action, this series has more movement yet it has a weak animaton sometimes good sometimes half-assed.

Also there was more expectative for this season because of the Invasion arc which lead to the biggest events.

I do agree that the change between volume 13 and SS was a bit abrupt. However, it's freaking GROUP, so I'll forgive this episode.

When I see said Fiamma, I will.

Double that for a Kakine cameo.

Hyouka and Touma scene was nice. Would have liked to see her reunite with Index. Seems like her singing worked.

Not really shocked that the Doctor saved Aleister, but never expected it. I hope LO and the sister are ok for now.

The scenes with Himegami and Fukiyose were great. I thought Touma was going to give another speech when talking to Tsuchimkado, loled hard when he decided to study English.

Little confused at Accelerator's job now. So he works fro Group, no idea what that is yet. I'm guessing it's anotehr line of defense made by Aleister. Don't really like the idea of them taking out people within AC. Also how does Accelerator know Tsuchimikado now. Well nice to see Musujime again.

Finall next week Accelerator and Touma meet up!

after reading lots of stuff on the wiki i get the gist of most of whats goin down. But hell the fast transition for GROUP raped my mind.
I dunno if this happens in the novel then goes back and explains like i expect [hope] the anime will but hey i've started reading the novel on baka-tsuki now.

Loved the Himegami PAWNCH, and the Fukiyose forehead, lols for all.

Good episode, GROUP finally animated! The Touma & Kazakiri scene was very touching~

Acqua with Terra on the phone, so that's what he sounds like!

Himegami got in a good punch, and Fukiyose's forehead was lol.
Touma trying to learn english, probably going to be one of his greatest challenges.

Tad bit disappointed with how they handled the transition scenes with GROUP, but oh well time constraints and what not.

Next episode - A drunk Misuzu & Hamazura Shiage's entrance into the anime hooray!

Did he... undo just by rubbing it!? That's a godly skill, I have to say.

Was Himeagmi choking though? What was wrong with her anyway?

And how is this only 24 episodes? Did I miss some news about another season or something?

Those were the best parts of the entire episode. Fukiyose is awesome too. Front clasp? Excellent...

The first half was just terrible... It started out at the climax, all of a sudden, with some insert song, and that was bad... But the following events felt so fast, it was like watching a digest of the story, yet at the same time, the episode apparently had enough free time doing some random food eating stuff. The last third of the episode calmed down a bit, so it wasn't as bad.
Animation is as always unstable as ever... At least that new character... What was it, that girl who choked on her food isn't a stick this time.
