Index doesn't really seem like a main character though, at least not compared to Touma and Misaka.

Misaka is definitely no more the main heroine than Index.

The reason why you're thinking that is because Misaka is the main romantic interest, plot-wise they are about even.

I'm just used to Main Characters that actively do things on their own. Index for the most part just leaves all the typical main character stuff to Touma.

I would personally say Misaka is more important then Index by the very fact she has her own series and Index doesn't.

That's because Touma is the Main Protagonist while Index is the main Heroine.

However in the Index series, the same could be said for Mikoto not doing much.

It doesn't translate to anything story-wise.

Well considering she's the name sake she really doesn't feature all that often, does she.

Well, they can't have Misaka stealing the show in Index when she's the star of Railgun, though I don't think many would complain if she did.

Heh, funny you should say that, because the star of Railgun is starting to become Saten after the Anime.

Mah, not completely of course.

It's just a title, and frankly I have no in idea why it's bothering people so much. She may be the titular character but Touma is the protagonist, I don't know why is that so hard for them to comprehend. The story doesn't always revolve around her just like how no one character is the center of everything... Not even Touma. But she has far more face time than any other girl save for Mikoto, not even the other Protagonists and their heroines have done as much.


Anyway, as fascinating as all this is, we really shouldn't be using the movie thread to discuss this.

Eh, Saten is nice but she's no Misaka. Great for her to get some attention but the main attraction to Railgun is and always will be Misaka and her appearances in Index are always something golden.

I've said again, please don't continue this conversation here, I've still got 5 more months before the rest of my Infractions points from this year and last year expires -_- And I don't need another one right now discussing off-topic stuff.

Moved the conversation to the General thread

^ How many does that make? My eyes are burning so I can't count . Well I expected it to be open in at least 30 screens, seems like it was too much demanded (assuming it's less than 30 screens ... and assuming it's about the screening >.>).
And, it's the first time in my life I ever noticed Touma's eye colour.

I've always thought of it as blue, you know, in contrast to Accelerator's red eyes.

Just like how they always wear opposite colored clothes... Not to mention hair colour.

Alright, I just finished reading the whole thread. Time for some real speculation. First, are we absolutely sure Stiyl says the reason for the attack was because of something in her body?

The only reason I can think of for Arisa being able to star a war between Magic and Science is that she is able to destroy the balance of power between Magic and Science. Probably by strengthening the Science. Maybe Arisa's power is to amplify AIM fields and the abilities of other Espers? It would explain why she is a Level 0 since the system scan wouldnt be able to detect such an ability.

Maybe Endymion has a darker purpose. Besides its obvious purpose as a space elevator, maybe it will act as some sort of tower that Arisa could use to expand the AIM field all over the world. Potentially making it impossible to use magic. This would be enough reason for the Magic side to attack.

That's seems too big of a scale; and if our speculation is right all this happened before Vento attacked so there's no way for the magic side to know anything about Imaginary Number District.

Though in the first place, saying 'magic side' is abit too vague- there are several dozens of different cabals, churches and organizations and they definitely don't all work together. I think in this case, it's one small cabal acting on it's own with Stiyl's as the Necessarius contact... Though if this is a complete Necessarius operation it could put a political strain on the two factions.

Honestly though, my first thoughts were that Arisa (the heroine in question) has some kind of data/information to help complete the Endymion, but that wouldn't explain why magicians would want her. At the same time the synopsis said that the Academy City forces sent to counter them are Law Enforcements, not Black Ops, which makes me think this has more to do with what Magician Side wants.

My guess is that she has some important magical power, but she became an esper either in ignorance or to avoid having to use it. And the magic side (Necessarius probably because Styil is there) want to kill her to get it back. I just don't have any idea what it might be (a really important/strong grimoire maybe?).

I suppose the key clue is why would she cause a war between science and magic? Because that would imply that she is or has something that is of value to both scientist and magician.
