What was the point of his memory loss?

Irony. In protecting Index's memories Touma lost his own. The current Touma considers the old Touma a stranger.

Basically he was reformatted. Touma had to put up the pretense that there is nothing wrong with him to everybody else.

He doesn't even recognize his own family.

Touma is an idiot that cares about the smiles of everybody else more than himself hence his heroic self sacrificing attitude.

But the memory loss does set up Touma himself as a mystery. How did he come to Academy City? As a kid as everybody else did? Or more recent? Why does he consider himself unlucky? The origin of the Imagin Breaker? Was there validity in Stiyl's suspicion that both Science and Magic sides kept Touma a secret?

I dunno, Touma didn't even know the name of his ability until the doc told him after he lost his memories.

He's already amnesiac by then.

It is likely not a coincidence also that Motoharu is in Touma's class.

I'm talking about him not knowing the name of his ability at all until he met the doc.

Eh? I thought I recall that Touma was the one who first called it Imagine Breaker at the start of the series?

No, the name Imagine Breaker was indeed said by Touma in the hospital after his memory wipe, but he said it's what the doc called it.

Well, according to the prologue of the first light novel that is translated at baka-tsuki, it is referred to by name, but, in the anime, it is not mentioned by name, at all, until after his amnesia.

i've come to realize that everything good touma does decreases his luck a bit more

considering he beat accelerator to save the sisters and mikoto probably good??

now he's wanted by everyone who thinks they need a raise in status as he a so called level 0 beat a 5 1/2 esper

considering using this as an example i wonder what will happen when his life gets worst.. or better depending( oh who am i kidding his life will not get better any time soon)

well his luck isnt that bad when you think about it he does have his own harem. ill trade places with him and take the occasional life threatening beating if it meant i could have that quality of women around me.

The guy is simply awesome. You know? I mostly hate the male protagonists of harem anime, because I think they're unworthy of the girls.

But not Touma. He is manly enough to have his harem. As a fellow guy I take my hat off to him.

yap his manly to the point that he can't resist to help someone but in the end he ends up with a trouble and also a girl. Even if he has no intention of scoring a girl he always ends with it..... what a terrible luck or karma. I wish I had that kind of bad luck.

"Kamijou" or "Kami ijou"? Touma not is esper, magician, saint or angel he is truly person beyond god, he can destroy wherever AIM that exists, of course their powers not have that great range but if Touma touch any indestructible and miraculous being (god, magician, esper, saint...) he can turn all of them into the most common and human being breaking all theirs habilities and powers making them killable.

On the other hand, Koizumi of "Mx0" was definitive a better Anti Mage than Touma.^^;
(I will never understand, how they could canceled this genious serie!)

Well, I wish I could read the novels to understand his character better...
Mx0 was canceled because it was too good

Yeah I just have the bad luck that doesn't get you a harem .

Anyways I never really liked the amnesia thing. On some level you can say Touma didn't change that much yet people are partly the result of their experiences. If you don't remember them you just aren't the same person. It probably was put in more for the mystery aspect yet it really is like Touma died in the first arc. Has always felt a little weird to me since initially watching Index. Kind of feel for everyone who knows him since they don't have a clue about what was lost.
