You wouldn't just happen to be talking about me, right? But seriously, TOUMA IS NOT A PRETTY BOY. They should keep the same character designs as season 1 because that fits Touma much better than the unidentified pretty boy we see here...

The pacing was a bit too fast for my liking, the animation was inconsistent and not up to par at times, and some scenes really did not have as much impact like they did in the light novel. Plus, what was with that Touma glomp attack on Uragami?

I just hope that they'll put the budget into the end of this arc, or else I'll be really disappointed.

i started having my doubts about the quality after seeing that j.c staff have like 5 series this season, the episode had some weird scenes, but i wouldnt judge until seeing them in a beeter resolution, but the scene before the op was very weird the characters looked weird, and over the episode there were some design inconsitencies(like i cant help seeing the accelerator in the ending just like kota from baka to test), they probably did the fast pacing probably because this isnt such an important arc, its sad to see that the quality isnt on par with S1 but still pretty good.

There's only so many ways you can knock the wind out of someone and not seriously injure them without a stunt mat.

You weren't the only one. That said though, this episode didn't really require much budget.


On a side note, i think the design for Uragami's cute.

Edit:

Not unexpected, but if anyone's interested in the magic that Lucia and Angelene used, the details are in here-

Spoiler for "Wheel of Catherine" and "Twelve Apostles Martyr":

Orsola's quite the looker underneath her coif and veil lol, especially when compared against the ones we've been shown so far. I'd have said Luccia but then she went batshit insane from being touched by a mere non-believer lol. Thanks for the info on their magic, that was an interesting read! It's stuff like that I found interesting about the To Aru-verse in the first place.

Are Saiji's(?) shoelaces untied or are they just too damn long?

It's partly due to the hectic pace, but the way it's presented did not give a strong, hard-hitting impression overall.
I always had a problem with Index's take-downs or 'thuds', and it seems it's still present in Season II. It just doesn't look or sound convincing enough, speaking of sounds, I did like that piece they played when Touma was chased around by Amakusa people.

Sorry but I really have to give you +rep points! That is a amazing explanation! Nicely done I would like some wiki links to them to check more of it out.

Also why was Index able to control the powers of Lucia? Was it due to her being a saint too? Or like you explained? I mean Index hijacking the Golem was surprising too you know.

Catherine of Alexandria or Saint Catherine of the Wheel

You mean Angelene? Or do you mean why she wasn't able to? Anyway there's no reason why she couldn't control the wheel, I suppose Angelene is easier to pick on

What Index manipulated wasn't exactly the spell, but the mind of the spellcaster. When I say don't think of something, you'll think of them. Those seemingly random alphabets she call out are meant to 'jam' the thoughts of the caster unconsciously. Recalling the Golem, she was only able to hijack it when it was in Manual control, once it switched to automated, she couldn't use Spell Intercept. Of course this requires knowledge about the spell you intend to hack..

Ehh, the episode is a bit disappointing for me. I mean, I know that one of the characteristics of Index is to have more speech even during the action, but like serenade_beta said, for a major confrontation between two major forces, it really doesn't feel chaotic at all. I was expecting something more along the line of the Kaori flashback they show there, but that's too short...

The floor also seems to have special magic or something, all it takes is a take down to the floor to knock both enemy combatants...well, the novel explanations make a bit more sense, but I don't think the animated adaptation portrayed it quite well, really. Oh well, at least they're still loyal to the material, some info are not given due to time and that's understandable, nice to see Index finally contributing to the fight too, even for a little bit. Hopefully, the action will be much better in the next episode...

That makes sense. I thought the style reminded me of the ED.
