I actually vaguely remember there being a medical affliction that stunts the growth of a person, so physically speaking there really isn't anything impossible about her.

It now struck me.
In episode 13, Komoe said that level 0's are an anomaly.

Why is this so?
As far as I know, level 0's just have very low powers.
And in Touma's case, he has no power.

Hmm? No, Level 0's are people without powers (remember Tsuchimikado's 'can't increase what's not there' comment?) Level 0's are an anomaly because according to the theory that Academy City uses to create Espers, every person should be able to awaken a power inside them. However, there are people who do not awaken powers, which goes against the theory. Since the Academy does not yet know why these peoples don't awaken powers, they are considered anomalies. Things that should not be there, but are.

Didn't Tsuchimikado claim to be a lvl 0?

Do we need an explanation of a hardcore lesbian crush?

From what I've seen in the anime its alluded that Kuroko respects her and tries to defender her in the school from petty talk about her in the school, where the friendship blossomed we'll probably find the details out n that in A certain scientific railgun if we are lucky..

Just out of curiosity, I'm going to watch this series sooner or later but I was wondering if there is any romance in this series? Also, what is the majority of the opinions about this series? Is it recommended?

Standard shounen anime romance is kept to a minimum, solid if not quirky plot/characters, somewhat gimmicky but not overtly. All in all I would recommend it.

Sounds good, thanks for letting me know, I'll probably give it a watch once I decide to take a break from romance animes

Mmm I might add its more mature or tires to be than adventure based shounen(beet, naruto,bleach,ect) tho I guess when naruto/bleach stays on a non quirky story arch it tries to be more mature than the rest. What I am getting at it dose not drown itself is comedy based gimmicks it keeps up with itself without losing its humor or meandering off in odd directions, there might be 1 or 2 eps that are off but that's not bad for a 2X ep series, I think Kaze no stigma had 3 or 5 screwy eps where the plot and the story is stuck in the mud for character building/fan service and what not(would recommend that as well, has a tiny bit more romance in it but not by much).

I think To Aru Majutsu no Index keeps a balance of fanservice, filler,pace,ect to me its more a solid and enjoyable sci fi action shounen anime.

Ack...apologies for the rambling ><

It's not a problem Rambles are actually more accurate to me because they work better in conveying your feelings towards the series and it's probably the most honest answer that you can give. Again, I appreciate the help. I think you've convinced me to watch the series now

So once I'm done with the series I'm currently watching, I'll probably watch this and start posting in this sub-forum Either way, I'm avoiding all the other threads because I despise spoilers

Yay, I like a balance in anime, when it goes to far in one direction I get annoyed or bored, Naruto and Bleach have a pension for going off on quirky triads, mainly do to "oh sht we ran out of material quick lets fill it in ASAP!!!" One piece dose it too...but then again it is a quirky triad :P.

Have you checked out Pandora Hearts? It manages to keep with itself well enough, for a more realistic(story wise)/non quirky sfi fi series vipers creed is good...and agghhhhhgg I am rambling again , there's about a half a dozen or so shows I am keeping up with give or take, if you want some series to check out ask me in a PM, there's not much romance wise I am watching, I do like romance but stuff like lovely complex and even Toradora(I know I know its generic but its less generic than most IMO) dose not come around alot..

Currently in anime, there are none.
Currently in novels, it might be either the leader of God's Right Seat or the Pope himself (since Roman Catholics appear to enemies to Touma and his friends here and Pope doesn't like him in slightest).

Personally, I think that Aleister Crowley (the magician and leader of espers: the guy in the tube) may be the main antagonist later on.

That's a good theory. Maybe he started the whole Science VS Magic rivalry into going to war so he could get rid of both sides when their both are at their weakest.
And he might be using everyone like Touma & Mikoto in his magnificent plan & they just don't it.
