Well SS2 of Index isn't one long continuous story either... it's about Gemstones (natural espers), but that isn't an overarching theme in all the chapters there.

Then again it's moot point if you don't like SS2 >.>

Though, thanks for your summary of that

I remember- I brought this up before somewhere else. The response: "Though it IS possible Aogami's a hidden level 5 - way back in vol1 of the novels, Aogami was the first guy Touma thought of as someone 'Strong' to help him fight against magicians and save Index, placed even before Mikoto."

Found the quote:

Translations: If so, then the only thing to do is call someone for help. Should I get Aogami Pierce? Or Biribiri Misaka Mikoto? Kamijou's mind thought of some 'Strong' people that even if he get them involved in this incident there won't be any problems.

Ah, that makes sense. I don't recall him ever saying that, or I haven't read that far.

Seriously, it's getting boring. I don't like the fact that this SS is not one big continuous story. It feels like every time the villains do these kinds of stuff for petty reasons, and the way these issues are resolved lack any sort of excitement or surprise. This SS is really uninteresting compared to the Stiyl/Bardway SS and the Railgun Liberal Arts City SS. But I'm still going to continue reading it because I'm interested in the Bardway chapter and the Valkyrie chapter.

What I do like is that the jeans shop owner never fails to mention "the middle schooler Saten-san".
Again, thanks for the summary and yeah thats the weak thing about the firsts parts of it. There is a minimun of connection between them, I feel more like the author is introducing a lot of Norse Mithology.

Ah, of course, スラッパール = Slappar, I forgot to mention it before in that message.

Too bad it ain't gonna happen Nobody knows how exactly the level 5's are classified- it's most common theory right now is that it's in terms of who can attain lvl 6 the easiest.

Seriously, how does Kamachi come up with all these weird names? Is Slappar even an actual name?

i think Touma MIGHT just be saved by Aogami Pierce (if he's the sixth level 5 which i believe he is) ()

I always wondered why he thougth that way, after all after losing his memory he always charged on ahead of its opponent, i migth me thing that maybe just maybe he was scared of using seriously his IB.

I wonder if Touma has a fetish?

A fetish for clones
Touma has a fetish for a hot landlady (like umm, that #1 sekirei from Sekirei, the Tokiwadai dorm manager should be on his list, it's a shame Touma's dorm manager is an old landlord) which he mentioned in the vol. 5 of the LN (I heard it on anime and read it on manga version though. While Tsuchimikado is a siscon and Aogami, anything that move.

But at least you don't name them after something, just ask Kakarot.

Anyway, you know you really need to do some soul searching when an IB punch to the face doesn't work much on you. Maybe there's too little preaching.

I highly reccomend this as well. Good for vocabulary practice.....of course, grammar is still the biggest stumbling block when it comes to translations...

Wrong....Laevateinn is a weapon found in Hel....

And yes, there is mention of how as long as she has the sword up, Innocentius is helpless against her. Basically it takes the form of a glowing blade that floats around her and fights of its own accord.

Yep. Too little preaching before the first punch. THe seond might do a bit more.

But seriously Touma. Why are you such a BadAss?

I especially like the little bit with his left hand. The way its phrased makes it seem its better not to have IB, which isan interesting point of view.
