I suspect Misha might be an existence that Touma's Imagination Breaker could dispell... Or maybe it's something that could really threaten her life...

Anyway, I thought the second part really make up a nice mystery story when the plot thickens with the number of suspects, we even have our Blond friend pulling something in the preview.

I guess things are alot better when you don't read from other sources before hand Knowing is a curse and so far I'm enjoying this arc

Then again, in that logic, they might have well as removed the alchemist and... Hime... what's her name...... And take out Otohime and etc. for not having any relationship in the future plot too. Yet one of the more exciting(?) material of the volume in the novel has to be removed? As expected of the sense of the company that used a SE that resembled a level-up music.
I've not seen the original material, but sometimes excising or pruning can make the whole stronger, rather than weaker.

True, but I can't see how taking out one of the few (rather, main?) sources of tension for this arc can become a good thing...

Looks like Kanzaki is on her way to join Touya's ever growing harem. Misaka too

And here I thought Misha was a Russian boy.

It's odd that Misha didn't act on her suspicions earlier, if she suspected enough to want to accompany Touma's mom. She ran out (and teleported? ) as soon as she saw Touma/friend. Why? It didn't look like she saw the picture; if she had seen a clue already, why hadn't she already turned back immediately instead of calmly walking around with the mom for any moment longer? Or is she on Touya's side and was planning on disguising the evidence? But that would conflict with how she first reacted to Touma...

Touma should have known something was strange when Touya was the only character he couldn't recognize as another person. He'd previously known all the other faces. I was fooled by Touya's resemblance to Lizardo, that's my excuse.

Or perhaps she knew Touya was the caster, perhaps from the same church, and is protecting him? Im actually at a loss, this is one of the rare plots i cant seem to figure out beforehand, so its getting better and better. Oh and Kanzaki was so MOE this ep

Index really only plays a siderole and the character that needs to be constantly rescued, i hope she doesnt get too much attention romantic wise, except if itd be with Stiyl:P Battle Royal for Touma between Imouto/Misaka/Kanzaki is a hopeful development, and something im looking for in the up and coming doujins .

Missed Himegami in the first episode of this arc, but her apperance was just ROFLcopters. oh and premonitions about Tsuchimikado can be also made, so its pretty open for any kind of further revelations. Loved the plothole about why he was in failing class, it all makes sense since hes a magician so he can only suck @ using ESP. A perfectly exploited minor detail imo.

Oh and fakeIndex getting slammed to the wall owned aswell:P

Hey now, that was the real Index. Even if her appearance is a little... off.

But the poor guy is going to blow up if he uses more magic and he sucks at ESP. He sort of screwed himself over for the organization.

I don't know. That kind of doesn't explain why there are two Styil's, if you know what I mean.

Hm? One person looks like (is) Styil to the unaffected, one person looks like Styil to the affected. So, I'm not quite sure what you mean.

Hehehe... Kanzaki... *drool*
Ahem. Anyhow, the dad being the culprit? My first thought when Touma realized that his dad didn't change appearence was because the dad also had the imagine breaker power... but then if he did and wasn't the person who cast it, he would see everyone around him as a different person like Touma... Well, anyhow, it wasn't a bad episode overall, I thought.

I don't know about you guys, but Kaori in the hot-spring and Himegami as a red-neck trucker were fabulous

On a more serious level, I also liked the 2nd episode of this arc, keeps up with the wackiness of the first, while adding some structure without that boring exposition of the first one.

Lulz, Kanzaki got pissed! to the point she used her "magical strings"

So, if Touma's dad was the caster, so the caster would still be affected by angel fall? however, the appearance of the caster won't change?

Best of all, she switched to "you're right, I should be grateful to him for saving Index T_T" immediately afterward, which gave her a tsundere kinda feel.

Speaking of which, bro fist to Secret Agent for sort of implying that Kanzaki should show off her hot body to Touma as a way of thanks.
