Honestly, I'd like to hear what Kamachi has to say about the volume, so I actually like to read the afterword first. It sometimes carries insights from the author that we wouldn't be able to see in the volume itself, and I wanna know Kamachi's plans for shoving Mikoto into the world of magic.

Mikoto chose to be at Touma's side and fight for him no matter who the enemy is.

Also, this just means that she will need to learn about it along the way. It is a different approach for the similar result.

Yeah, Afterwords can change my whole look on the novel. A shame they are always translated the last but than again, they are supposed to be read the last I guess...

Yap, her OWN WORLD she has indeed her own maybe even franchise. -_- going into 4chan really not a good idea this time around. It's the same as the last volume. No discussion and just hate this and that.

well I loose interest in reading NT 3 from the time being. I will wait for further spoiler or a good summary after I passed my judgement on it.

pictures grabbed at the image board
Spoiler for NT 3:

Oh, and I see that Kamachi likes Fate/Zero anime... I can hear him saying: "Rider, I am making you the President of USA!"

Once again like in NT vol 2 it another ending with Misaka and touma in vol 3!! Because if you see the second picture in the middle after opening the Spoiler Link! you see that the picture is near the end of the novel! Any thoughts people?

There are at least four new characters.

The one I mentioned earlier named Sandrion, Robert Katze, an unnamed brown girl and the girl in Nayrael's third image.

Thoughts? Mikoto is true to her ambition of not letting herself become a Side Character again :P
That, and Kamachi again ship-teases people.

Not this time. Whatever ship-tease this will become is entirely brought by canon.
Take note, I'm not interested in shipping, so leave this thread and me out of that.

It is no secret that Kamachi likes teasing/annoying/trolling the shipping fans. I think he even admitted it :P
(not that I care about shipping either... especially not for Touma)

Just you wait till Japanese fans start discussing us while translating our posts (like they already did). We will become Superstars!!

Oh, and Touma suspects that Birdway is a Gremlin? What a trusting guy... he is just angry she ain't in his harem...

Then let's give them something to watch.

So we already touched on Kamachi's possible motivations for throwing Mikoto into the magic world like he did. What role do you think she'll play, and what role do you want her to play?

I personally think she'll end up as a nice contrast to Index, in the sense that she'll take a far more active role, but will be out of her league as the inexperienced newcomer with a hotheaded attitude that'll end up causing massive problems until she learns more about the world she's in now.

It means to promote a romantic pairing you have a personal fondness for.

Hawai, USA, a lot of sea... now you just need to steal some ships and you can start battling one another Armed battles are legal in ToAru's USA you see...

Seriously tough, Shipping is a term used for supporting "romantic" pairings.

Lol, I think I was mentioned at least once in a Japanese site.

On a serious note, seems that they are also gauging the fame or hype of certain series based on what I discovered; my posts were part of the Winter 2010 Anime Expectations Thread here.
^ Just see the whole thread.

As for the discussion, well, we have to remember that GREMLIN is not purely magic. Radiosonde Castle is a testament that they're not afraid to use science to take out their enemies, so it's Mikoto's job to inform them about scientific stuff that Touma can't provide. However, Mikoto only knows half of Academy City, and we don't know if she would be the last to be dragged into the Darkness for good.

It is time. The illustrations are nice. I love the President's face in the first one.
Kuroyoru getting trolled pictures are nice.
Can't wait for more spoilers.

She will fire some Railguns, see Accel, throw some Railguns, try to rage at Accel but see Worst, ship some Railguns, get trolled by Worst, use some Railguns, search for Touma, give some Railguns around, find Touma, play with some Railguns and give her best to not turn back into a Side Character... all while showing the World some Railguns.

Hopefully she will actually learn about the world of Magic rather than stay oblivious by some miracle as in previous volumes and Railgun novels...

EDIT: possibily, Touma will manage to run away and she will be stuck with Accel, Misaka Troll and that Catgirl. Golden Comedy guaranteed
