Toaru Majutsu no Index Audio Drama
"Shakti" - a baby girl that is found on Touma's doorstep. Later revealed to possess magical power.
Harisha - a Hindu woman who infiltrates Academy City to escape being pursued. Her magic revolves around mantra and can control animals by infusing mantra on them.
Laksha - a sadhu; Harisha's sister and pursuer. She is supposed to gain possession of "Shakti" as a member of a certain Hindu sect. She controls a pair of magical chakrams that can be controlled remotely.

Index Archives 1
Terunoa - a self-proclaimed "former" magician. She sneaks inside Academy City to attempt to destroy by using an earthquake-summoning spell.
Yasumi Usukinu - kouhai of both Mikoto and Kuroko. She challenges Mikoto to confirm if a certain myth about defeating Mikoto is true.

Index Archives 2
"Absolute Fortune" Boy - an unnamed young kid who brags being blessed by "absolute fortune". It turns out that he possesses a weak form of mind control that he can use to fool people.

I think you made a mistake. Terunoa and Yasumi Usukinu are from the Audio Drama and they are canon. Shakti and the other 2 are from Archive 1.

They are both in the official guide book (To Aru Majutsu no Index no Subete), and the scenario of the audio drama was written by Kamachi.

I haven't got a copy of Subete, but are there character designs attached?

I don't have it with me at the moment, but IIRC, no, those 2 characters didn't get character designs.

Ugh. I really wanted to see how Haimura depicts those characters.

Why are we discussing the CD drama in the Light Novel thread

Anyway, I've just listen to the Audio Drama, Terunoa is pretty much in the same league of villainess as Sherry and Vento with the whole hatred to Science, but she has quite abit of spunk to her character

...No flag raising for those of you who are wondering.

Currently listening to the first Archive... Shakti sounds adorable, and as expected Aogami misunderstanding the entire situation... I wouldn't be surprise if he spread the news through school

"Kami-yan... No, I should call you Papa-yan now right...?"

As I thought, mind manipulation.

How many of the archives are you going to listen to?


Also, which would be the best place to discuss the Archives? Here or the Merchandise thread?

Wouldn't the most appropriate place to do that would be the music discussion? That's the place for all the official songs and soundtracks so it's only logical that the drama tracks be there as well.

I'm of the opinion it should be here, since it does affect the LN somewhat.

Question

Are the Archives canon?

Also, Chaos2Frozen, how much detail can you discern from the Archive after listening to it?

(I've got a rough idea of what's going on but I can't pick out the finer details. My notes have a lot of [Uncertain]s spread throughout them)

AFAIK the Archives isn't canon.

It's widely accepted to be not canon- that said, I'll just fall back to my rule that if it doesn't outright contradict canon or any know laws or timeline, it's canon until proven otherwise.

As for details... Not much I'm afraid. It's probably no more than what you could find out from reading the summary somewhere else.

Thought so.

(There was one possible contradiction in Archive 2 (though this probably came before the canon) - Mikoto was affected by that boy's ability)

It's probably better than what I could produce.

If you want, you can find the Archive drama for Index (S1) and Railgun on youtube.

They even have the audio drama tracks- that one's a treat to hear as well.

That's how I know what I already know about them (apart from what has been said here).

So Kamachi said Misha isn't the only archangel in the series in V.21.

I would like to see Haimuras design for the following.

Michael
Raphael
Ariel
Azrael
Chamuel
Haniel
Jeremiel
Jophiel
Metatron
Raguel
Raziel
Sandalphon
Uriel
Zadkiel

Those angels are from the kabbalah if I'm not mistaken. Though it looks like too many?

Those four are significant in Christianity but in toaruverse where the Kabbalah might be connected I won't be surprised if Metatron shows up as an angel of the age of Horus.
