She can't use her scabard with the blade out like you could with a normal katana to block. She's sort of using her katana and wires like a modified harp. In other words, she hasn't demonstrated any real katana abilities yet.

Touma has to start somewhere. Those other hand to hand fighters started at ground level also. Defenders of Justice have to kick ass also.
yeah i think he needs 2 start by not talking so much and just a get his arse kicked or be show us some bad arse fighting skill. Just not so much talking *unless this show is gona be 24+ ep then i dont mind so much.

I kinda question that since Touma's hand didn't do anything to it.

It's more likely the wires were used for the range cutting.

Well yeah, I never disagree with that.

Start somewhere indeed, however without proper training and experience, there's only so much you can do on your own.

The way I see it, Touma shouldn't be viewed as like the other shounen heroes. With his power as it is, he's not going to be any awesome-er of a fighter. Street fighting isn't going to do squat up against magic and psychic powers. It's hard to imagine anyone losing to him once they know about his power.

But even so, he is the one who is going to fix other people's problems.

Touma is a canceller. A canceller with some limitations. (His right hand)

Touma's only chance are those who rely too much on their abilities like the fire guy.

That's right, and only his right hand.

Even so, it's only good for one match.

But like I've said, I don't think Touma is meant to win the battles, but rather to solve the 'end-game' problem altogether.

This is just my impression from the Index-Arc, I haven't read the novel so I wouldn't know how much would change 10 books from here.

EDIT:

No idea actually... Maybe it's still too early to tell...

I'll settle for the PV to the opening song for now

Kaori's skill are not sound based, it is some kind of katana skill known as Battōjutsu or Iaijutsu. i'm not sure which one it is but generally it the skill used in drawing swords. Kaori's magic amplifies her physical power and allows her to increase her speed in many ways, for example keeping her sword back into the sheath instantly.As for Yuisen, I'm not sure how to explain about it, but at least it is also not a sound base attack, it has something to do with amplifying power too. It should be shown if the story reaches vol.4...

Well, I hope someone can give more information about Battōjutsu or Iaijutsu, I not very good in explaining stuffs, sorry...

This EP was just painful to watch. There's nothing more worse than two enemies becoming emo at each other yelling shits and crap about their own feelings and etc. This series is starting to sway on to the wrong path. Were's the nice fight scene back in EP1 w/ those cool dialogs and etc. It went from cool to cheesy. lol.

The thing is that they ARE NO ENEMIES. Kaori didn't want to hurt Touma to begin with, and once Touma understood the situation, he had no reason to fight either. Under these circumstances, it was perfectly logical not to have any fighting (until Kaori snapped).

I suspect that this is where the opinions diverge. Those who want to see fast-paced action will be disappointed. Those who prefer storyline over action won't mind as much. And well - I guess once the exposition parts in the beginning are done, we'll have a more balanced diet

Heard the full version of "PSI-missing" this morning, and I like it. Liked Mami's songs since I first heard "Hishoku no Sora".

Kitaaaa!!

The veranda person's newest video!
http://www.nicovideo.jp/watch/sm5082455

Komoe sings that Kira~ song from Macross Frontier!... Too bad it wasn't another Tales song.
Hilarious as always. And it was incredibly amusing that Stiyls, that lolicon, was peeking into the room from the outside (hard to see)!

Haha, I don't mind storyline over action and still minded a whole bunch though.

Ugh, while I liked when Kanzaki was hitting him with the sheathed sword(don't think that happened in the manga) they failed at how that fight ended:
Spoiler for chap 8 manga pgs:

I'm also surprised they cut out the flashback at that point in the manga as well. It'd probably served better than all the explanations esp since

No. Definitely not soon. Just lots of future characters... Many that won't get to appear in the anime.
Won't that make this technically a novel spoiler, since it reveals future characters...?

I suspect they were reserving that for next episode, or maybe even before the epic finale to this arc.

But it's only a spoiler if you know who they are. Instead we're going "Hahahahaha. They have a nun wearing a garter belt and black hose. I wonder what Order she's in. The Anglican Church must really be getting liberal in that anime. "

Iya, iya, in reverse, it wouldn't be a spoiler because you know. If you know it already, you can't be spoiled, surely?
But on the other hand, it is a spoiler because it does show unknown characters that will appear later, even if the name isn't revealed. If it was an anime picture, then that's one thing, but this is clearly from the novel...

Then again, lots of people probably have already entered this thread and looked at the picture already... Too late~nya
