like everyone, I also recommend you to read the book, several issues, but the main one would be because Touma is a character much more pleasant / smart / badass in the book.

I've never understood you strange selective persecution of the Anime Touma, what? Do you not like Japanese voices?

So, our roles have been reversed...

Kidding. The PDFs are huge but I just got it on my phone, for a start.

Hm, tough. LNs are fine with me if they're decently written and translated, but the anime helps me to get a feel for the different characters. Especially when Index is really about only the...seventh or eight anime I've watched. I've got much less experience than you high-level otakus guys.

anime touma is pretty good sure at first ehhh but later on he became more likable to the point where you can either like him or hate him. character designs pretty good most of the time. his fight scenes are intense and very enjoyable to watch him interact with other characters. i have no problem with it and plenty of other touma light novel fans either probably.

@Tusjecht

Just do whatever you want- different people here have vastly different opinions... Or something, numerous minor different opinions that may or may not be exaggerated.

seriously you do not feel anything about it? particularly speaking, I find very boring, empty a character, the anime does not show small details that make the difference for me between like or dislike, such as their struggles in the anime it just boil down to run toward the enemy and hope hit the punch, Agnese vs Touma or Touma vs Oriana, while in the book we see the whole review about this while it form its strategy of action, his relationships with other characters, god, I loved the second meeting with Mikoto in his book , it was pretty hilarious, some comments from him, etc.. summarizing, particularly talking some scenes / comments / actions are taken and that make a difference to me.

No I don't, because those are still in the Anime just that they aren't spelled out for you in plain words.

So if you don't 'feel' it, then maybe the problem lies within you for not being able to read the scene?

Details will get left out no matter what, this is the same for all adaptations- but you have to be forcing yourself to think he's somehow a different character from the other two.

Eg.
Spoiler for Touma's first use of IB anime-wise:
That's how.

I feel stupid for asking this last question for the day (julioalgae I swear I'll go watch 3 & 4 when I get home later) but it will be explained why Misaki's tsundere for Touma, right?
Ok small thing the anime did change this from the novel
Spoiler for novel:

Oh yeah, yesterday I found the thread raeging discussing that.

My take on it: I'm not touching that until I complete the first volume of content, or the first season of Index.

i wonder if touma can dodge a railgun i mean sure he managed to dodge it like it was noting when he was DRUNK seems to give him a major boost. but can he actually time the moment when he should dodge it with the help of his precog thats what im wondering.

sadly though there is only a limited amount of attacks he can dodge which is where imagine breaker comes in handy. even though his main ability is not all that impressive(sure as hell knows how to use it though) he can make each fight unique in their own way and interesting at the same time.
