Did you see my sentence right after saying that? "I don't see Index as a possible romantic interest for Touma" is what I'm saying - they look more like family members from their interaction IMO.

The question is: First girl on what?

First girl to appear? Mikoto was.
First girl to be properly introduced to Touma? Index was.
First girl to be saved? Index was.
First girl he thinks? idem.

Even the "first girl" quetion is subjetive.
Well... first girl to be properly introduced to Touma (before memory-loss) is probably Fukiyose due to being in the same class and all, but point taken.

Still, just by Mikoto having more (romantic ones, not fanservice ones) scenes than any other girl with Touma to me practically means she will be the one in the end getting Touma, if he doesn't die at the end of the series or something.

The big plot twist is Touma ending up with Himegami. Never saw that coming.

Do you remember Love Hina? It started as fanservice meeting.

A twist of epic proportions that will made all people go WTF! XD.

P.S.: Poor Himegami needs more screentime

If you want so much of a plot twist "Holy, didn't see that coming did we?" with that...

... Kuroko.

Something that doesn't seem so far-fetched yet is close to a "crack" considering the very, very little interaction they have (and that her rescue involves her beloved Onee-sama in the act, not just Touma).

Geez Kuroko, if only you knew what made your beloved Onee-sama so fond of that "anthropoid"...

Not on the "crack" level but on a "didn't saw that coming level" level.

IMO, crack pairings with Touma would be with:

- Laura.
- Rimea.
- Vilian <--- If William stops to be so dense there are chances of him getting the princess.
- Tokiwadai Dorm Supervisor.
- Elizarina

I was pretty much thinking good things until...

- Tokiwadai Dorm Supervisor.

... Uh. Okay. That's a nice crack over there.

Well, when I said "crack"... .... thinking back of it, I guess everyone knows Touma had met with Kuroko at least once. Be it the novel readers, those who lurk here reading every single spoiler they could (I admit to being one), or those who just got initiated into following this series. Maybe just an exaggeration on my part, sorry >_<

I rather like Carissa x Touma as a crack pairing to be honest.

Crack pairing? Then it should be Fukiyose x Touma.

Because we all know it's NEVER going to happen. NEVER, right guys?

Though seriously, my favorite crack pairing that doesn't involve Touma is Laura x Aleister.

The most evil couple

Wouldn't the most cracky pairing be him and Kongo or whatever that wind girl from Railgun is called? Because the chances of them getting together are just about nil.

that's what I thought before too, but there's the 体を張ったんじゃない, and translating it into those doesn't connect well with the next few sentence and the nuance within the scene(he fight hard so he can complaint that he's beat up and there's no reason to fight alone? That doesn't look like Kamijyou that we all know right? XD) so I edited my post and change the translation XD.

Anyway, am I right about that there's some mistranslation that completely change the whole sentence meaning?

Here's another example :

だからこそ、少年は記憶をなくした事実を隠す。|誰《だれ》かのせいだと、動かなければこんな事にはならな かったと、そんなつまらない|台詞《せりふ》を口に出して誰かを傷つけさせないために。

is translated into :

That conclusion is the real foundation that Kamijou Touma holds. Because of that, the boy hid the fact of his memory loss. That someone was at fault, if he hadn't moved it wouldn't have come to this, saying something boring like that to keep someone from getting hurt.

Isn't the bolded part is supposed to be translated into :

So that no one's gonna hurt somebody else by saying something trifling like that it's someone's fault, that if he hasn't acted he wouldn't become like now.

Reading the original translation I get a feeling that Touma hid his memory loss so that saying "That someone was at fault, if he hadn't moved it wouldn't have come to this" will keep someone from getting hurt, while from my understanding of the original japanese sentence, he thinks that saying "That someone was at fault, if he hadn't moved it wouldn't have come to this" will hurt somebody instead.

Guys, breaking news.
According to info on a certain scan for the Index PSP Game, Shizuri Mugino will make an appearance, and she will be voiced by Koshimizu Ami (Spice and Wolf's Holo).



Also, Oriana Thomson will be added to the current character roster. [Forgot about that.]

This is the first formal appearance of Mugino in animated media (not gonna count her cameo in Railgun; her design isn't that good there).

about the romantic issue, i think if take notice that touma is archetyped mostly like a visual novel/love comedy main character,he will just end with index, after all the most common development in japanmedia is "boy meets girl".
