At the end of the fight Etzali (tired) to use(d) Tecpatl grimoire to heal Tochtli and replace her missing bones with Obsidian. He probably succeeded, though I can't remember right now if it was clearly stated that he did.

That's from the first drama track right? I recalled they had a scene where Index, Touma and Mikoto were out on a threesome day-to, and Index tried to explain magic to Mikoto while Touma was doing his darnest to prevent that from happening but it didn't matter because Mikoto was completely lost in translation.

Later, the duo (minus Mikoto) got into some trouble with a magician trying to destroy Academy City for whatever reason.

Ah, yes. That's the one.
I also have the audio drama about the baby that ended up in Index's care.

If only the rest of the other audio dramas were translated too...

I admit that I like Terunoa's speech pattern.

Then there's one with Mikoto and Kuroko and a new girl that challenged Mikoto to a duel. I can't remember how the fight ended but as it turns out that new girl is the 'same type of human' as Kuroko, and the reason she challenged Mikoto in the first place was because of a rumor that the person who can 'defeat' Misaka Mikoto would gain her love (or something to that extend)

God knows where that rumor came from *cough*

I think that the rumor was "the one that forces Mikoto to get serious is worthy of her love" (& being loved, apparently)..... Considering that Touma was the first one in that end you could argue that it's true

Chapter 6, part 1

Ah yes, that sounds more right

God knows how that rumor came to be

Got a question. What do you think is a better name for the Grand Master of the Knights of England?

Knight Leader or Knight Commander?

Your opinion.

Hmm? Didn't the novels establish that it's "Knight Leader", even though the name for his rank is written in Kanji?

Translations call him Knight Leader... tough I think Grandmaster would be correct in RL.

I have been kind of busy so i couldn´t quite make a proper post (just a few comments here and there...), but honestly, i can´t let this one slip out of my hands:
Quote:

If you´ve ever read Bakuman, then you would have heard one recurring phrase in that manga: "If it´s interesting it sells...", you could also say, that if it´s interesting it´s worth reading and that´s is the only word that i could use to properly describe Touma: "A interesting character"... Touma is way too much of both a simple and complex character, to describe by any other word:
Sometimes, his character appears so bland that you could mistake him to be a the typical shounen harem-lead hero, but you don´t expect a one to suddenly start talking about red bunny girls and how different is to love a maid and a waitress...
Sometimes he seems like and otherworldly "saint" in terms of charisma and drive with a credo that while not word per word is essentially: "Yo don´t need special reasons to do what you feel is right, just a little courage to do so with a pride filled heart..."; but even then, he himself recognizes that doing something like this is self-righteous and arrogant(though quite and honest way of living if you ask me,xD), if not he wouldn´t have said "I fight for myself", when Index asked him about why he steps on to fight.
They call him a hero or an idiot with hero-complex, but if anything he is a villain... that is, if you go by one of the many definitions of villian: "one who forces his own ideology in others", as time and time again he rejects others "illusions" and judges them with "reality". As Aiwass said, he only looks like a hero because the end result of his actions looks like something good, but he only does whatever he feels like it.


On a side note, i only noticed just then but, aren´t Index and Accelerator characters the same? i mean their positions are exactly the same: the greatest brains of their own worlds, they are both being spun around by the darkness of their own worlds and i doubt this novel will ever end without Index breaking free just like Accelerator is slowly doing so in his own way...

The thing about our translations is that we follow what the wikia gives. So basically, we share the information with each other. Grandmaster should sound about right though.

And btw, that won't be the only update from me for today. I promised. Today will be war, there will be words.

Furigana calls him Knight Leader, the reading is Knight Leader, period. The meaning is in the line of "Knight Master" / "Grand Master", of course; it's in the same vein as "Accelerator" reads "Accelerator" and not "Ippou Tsuukou" and Imagine Breaker reads "Imagine Breaker" and not "Gensou Goroshi"

The wikia actually had "grandmaster" at first, but I went out of my way and changed it for the previous reason. It makes me wonder, perhaps the chinese version uses Grandmaster only?? I remember that most of the spoilers (and ergo wikia articles) come from the chinese scanlation and it's readers.

Which by extension makes me wonder, from which version is the Ping working on? If you reverse engineer the text you can noticed that many kanji reads kinda different (for example "testament" reads as it's meaning, or many instances of 姉さん got read as neechin), the reading is mostly accurate / spot on so it isn't really a problem; but still kinda peaks my curiosity xD

I can't be the only one that managed to catch TV broadcasts of this, right?

So not just did Fiamma beat the crap out of all his opponents, but he also came up with a detailed plan and managed to put a present into Touma's pocket?
Go Fiamma!

^ Fate worse than death tbh.

Also... Imagining Accelerator and Worst in that scene with the spy, Accelerator was smoking HOT. Jesus I want to see this animated.

By the way...

Okay, I better drop it before I imagine Worst as a dickgirl- GOD FUCKING DAMMIT NO! BEGONE VILE THOUGHTS! GUWAAAAAAAHHHH!!!
