To Aru Majutsu no Index - Anime-Only Q & A

This thread is for those of you with questions about the To Aru Majutsu no Index anime. There are many questions that don't need a whole thread to discuss them. A simple practical answer straight from the anime without any speculation can solve these connundrums. If someone has such a question about To Aru Majutsu no Index which can be solved by answering with facts from an official source, then please ask that question here.

Please don't post in this thread unless you are asking a question or answering one. Please remember that it only takes 1 person to answer a question. And don't speculate! You can only reply with cold, hard, merciliessly unforgivable facts. If you have to speculate, then please just tell the querrant that no answer is known, but here are some facts that might help him make up his own mind.


If you have a question about the Index novel or manga, please go here instead.

Hey people!

I wanted to pick up this series (I watched the first few Episodes of Index looooong ago but stalled it), but I wanted to be clarified about one thing:

Is "Railgun" simply a side story where all the events happen the same ways as in Index (even if it may be "offscreen"), but with a different point of view, or are there any major changes? Also in what order should I watch the respective seasons of the main & side story?

It's a side-story, Index and Railgun's interactions are mostly cameos from Index's protagonist (Kamijou Touma), there is sometimes when they are despicting the same arc in different perspectives.

Thank you, so is there any order you would recommend to watch it? Should I watch index1, index2, railgun1, railgun2 or rather something like index1, railgun1, index2, railgun2? Or does it not really matter?

In the grand scheme of things it doesn't really matter, but if I had to choose, I would go with the latter.

Just a feeling I guess.

People say a lot of things.

Rule #1, If it's not official with source don't believe it.

Greetings there,
I'm glad to join this forum, I'm actually new to To aru majutsu no index, and by finishing both seasons I was amazed by this anime, it eventually aroused many questions to me and few requests, so could someone tell me :

1- Will there be any possible chance for season 3 of To aru majutsu no index ? will it happen in 2015, 2016 or maybe until the Light Novel is completed ?

2- What is the difference between TAMNI's manga and the light novel ( or maybe difference between Light Novels and mangas generally ? )

3- Where can i find the Light novel's original material ? all i can find is only the English translation from a site but i cannot find the original copies or even translated versions of it ?

It would be very grateful if someone replied to me

Thanks

Chance? Yes. But nothing concrete has been announced atm so your guess is as good as ours.

Anything we say is just speculation.

Light Novels are pretty much 99% text, as their name suggests.

Specifically, the main difference between this Index LN and the manga is that the manga skipped two of the earlier arcs. Other minor differences is like the manga streamline the details while the LN is more nitty-gritty, there might also be tiny changes but nothing extreme outside of the previously mentioned.

We're not allow to discuss raw sources I'm afraid, beyond saying "purchase from a bookstore or shipping".

Greetings mate, Thanks for your reply, I felt sort of disappointment because of it , so that means Light novels has much more text than drawings ? like only 5 pages or something per chapter for drawings ?
Please if you know any source for these RAWs I cannot buy them in my country due to unavailability

What do you even need the RAWs for? If you look for the illustrations, then you find them at the same place as the translations. And yes there aren't many illustrations, but it's not 5. It is usually about 15-20 per volume.

I can see now, everything became more clear to me, many thanks mate , I hope they declare an official announcement about a new season any time this year or the next year or I might just lose hope and forget about it all, maybe i should follow up already completed animes/mangas.
