You should check out how he tries to atone for his sins.


BTW, it's explicitly said in the preview of NT Volume 2 that Touma will be in Railgun Hell, while being done into by Index

I for one like him because he is a great character to follow. Following his development from Volume 3 (where he was a psycho) up to NT (where he is not a crazy maniac anymore) is a fun thing IMO. That he was crazy once just makes him a better character for people like me.

Not to mention that it is kinda useless to hate characters for past sins here. Redemption is one of themes of TAMNI after all.
And Accel is definitely a character that seeks it. How much Worst's words hurt him shows us better then anything how much he regrets what he had done in past.

That's why I seriously doubt we'll be seeing the festival this year (our year). If it was going to happen, the synopsis would definitely mention it.

Btw, I saw the "Railgun Hell" part, but I thought the preview only mention something like he reunite with Index? Yeah I'm holding out for a small hope that their reunion be different from the usual

Basically, it said that "Touma falls into Railgun Hell, while Index does...."


I get the feeling we'll be seeing all out chaos.


PS: I'm now finally translating two "Touma Returns to Mikoto" comics, one of them comical, the other bittersweet.

Its because in Volume 3 people liked him as a villain.

He was a powerful, trash talking murderer, and they make great villians.

Then in Vol 5 onwards he tries to redeem himself.

He tries to make himself better, he's a growing individual...

You should never forget who he was, but you also have to look at who he is, and who is striving to become.

Speaking from personal experience here. There are a lot of people who wanted to redeem themselves after having made a grave mistake. Accelerator's one of the few characters we see who's flawed, who was a villain, and now wanted to make amends. They know they won't be forgiven (if not at all), but they still want to get redemption. This is basically how the dynamics work between him and Last Order works. He knows that Last Order won't forgive him for what happened during the SISTERs project (from LN anyway), but still, he's still willing to put his life on the line for her sake before he wants redemption. It's a work to redeem himself that people find appealing to cheer on, even though he's the underdog. At first, he was the 'wow, this white-haired guy looks cool. OMG! He's haxx!!' that kind of thing, but now it's like making an overpowered person more 'human', if you can explain the questionable actions he did later. Besides, Draco in Leather Pants.

Anyway, Volume 2 Chapter 1 was completed, and I suspect Volume 3 chapter 2 may be completed within the next 24 hours.

I've read everything and yes, he is far far more normal now...but not enough yet. He's still kind of twisted inside. With that kind of past, I suppose it's impossible for him not to be.

About the Ichihanaransai, I want to see Mikoto play several violins at the same time using magnetism on metal bows... perhaps a quintet ensemble or something like that.

She used her blood to form it, you know, like Chrona.
I know I shouldn't pursue as it's from a different manga, but just claryfing: Maka's black blood dress doesn't manifest itself until she fights Arachnee at the Baba Yaga's Castle (so is past the anime.)

Ah, 4chan, the Internet's toilet. It's been awhile. LOL at people discussing that when it was clearly stated that Avalon blocks attacks from different dimensions, and then they started talking about immigration...

I will resist the need to say anything about it since the shitstorm here will smell.

Seriously though thanks for everything you've translated. It's a shame you won't be here any more

Aleisters plans>> the world

Oh god no. That's just a bit too cheesy.(It's already a pain in the ass having sand in your ass from the beach, imagine iron sand up in there) How about making wings out of iron sand. Though the idea can be compared to Accelerators black wings except Mikoto can't fly.
Dude Misaka can fly, she uses the water around her and here a photo to prove it (this was talk about a while ago : http://www.baka-tsuki.org/project/in...SS1_07_026.jpg
