Himegami's collapse:
Spoiler for volume 10 accidental firing:


Touma and Stiyl find Himegami:
Spoiler for volume 10 accidental firing:


I do agree that the animation was iffy in this episode as well, especially in the beginning. I thought it was a pretty good episode, but I am kind of confused as to why there was no blood shown in Tsuchimikado's fight when he should be very weakened due to using magic and there was so much blood shown in the Himegami scene.

Tsuchimikado was able to bluff Oriana into thinking he could contact Kanzaki because he assumed that Oriana knew nothing about Eastern magic.

If anyone is still confused, the cross Himegami is wearing was a gift from the British Puritans sent to her after the Deep Blood Arc to seal off her powers. It is a Walking Church, the same kind of protection Index herself had at the beginning of the series. Oriana who was paranoid of enemies tracking her down at the time acted on impulse and attacked her.

I have to say that the music / soundtrack for this show is excellent. It might be generic electronica to some but it does well to stand on its own and work very, very well with the show. It's moving when it needs to be, epic when it needs to be, it's great.

That said if someone like Orina decided to lay down on the ground and freaking SPREAD EAGLE in front of me there's going to be a different type of magic going on. She'd need Kuroko's wheelchair when I'm done with her.

I think Orina is the real magician here, how the FUCK does she keep those massively wonderful baby feeders in that tube top?

My god~

I'm in shock!

Seriously, I didn't expect that kind of comment.

Nothing wrong with the story - pacing may be slightly slow for my taste but I guess this arc was long (I haven't read the novel yet so I've no idea the length of this arc compare to the Remnant one)

The animation...sigh, the art is just bad...characters look weird and different at times...

To give you some perspective, Remnant was one thin book. while Daihaiseisai covers two whole volumes.

Is this just a running gag from the author or is this actually a popular urban legend among young adult women in Japan?
I'm not sure about the latter. However, a bunch of us experts put our heads together and came up with this:

[08:00] <Kha> having been so growth accelerated

[09:01] <Kha> She drank Musashino
[09:01] <Kha> Now... >.>
[09:02] <Kha> It just means that if Misaka keeps up her dosing, she'll get there
[09:02] <Kha> Its one of those Academy City things. Breast enhancing milk.
[09:02] <Kha> Hitech stuff
<@Funya-n> fullerenes coated with enzymes that target mammary tissue and bind to them, while the interior of the fullerene contains and releases growth accelerators that stimulate the growth of abovementioned tissue...
[09:55] <kct> .....
[09:55] <kct> What the hell man.
[10:02] <Tk3997_> Na dude it's just full of hormones
[10:12] <Kha> yup
[10:12] <Kha> just very specific estrogens
[10:12] <Kha> I call them adenomamestrogen
[10:13] <Kha> contained within the Nyan fullerenes
[10:15] <Kha> but Nyan is right to say that they are growth accelerators. Normal hormones would cause cancer as well; something much more specific would be needed for all the benefits and none of the side effects.
[10:16] <Tk3997_> Pff yeah right as if they'd spring for that
[10:16] <Kha> So its a growth accelerator, and a hormone
[10:16] <Tk3997_> na man it's just stuffed full of bovine growth hormone
[10:16] <Reimu> in before prion
[10:17] <Kha> the cows must have quite the cow tits, at the risk of sounding obvious...
...and that's our final conclusion.

But it made so much sense!

So did your reply about any pic of Oriana is too NSFW for Asuki! XD

Toumas making me sad, hes been going bad ass serious face mode like 3 times now and usually when he does that he does some epic fight. Now all we have is fail after fail and friends getting owned left and right.

What im hoping to see is Touma runs past misaka index and shirai and they try to stop him he yells gets all srs and they see a new side of him. Would be awesome to see their reactions to his ftw side lol.

The arc is (finally) getting interesting (geez, the pacing...), but the art is... yeah... just bad.
Wow... At a laughable level.

Hime... Finally gets an appearance and gets exploded... ( -_-)
Poor girl.

This is the first arc where people that he cares about gets caught up in this mess and hurt, while there was nothing he could do about it.

I suppose there's a lesson somewhere for him.

But they had already seen that side of him before, when he had saved each of them.

damn...this is probably the most traumatic arc so far for Touma.

Usually he saves the girl, and everyone is happy.
So far, he had no choice but to stand by and discover/see people he know get seriously injured.

Himegami, noooO!!!!!
I think the pool of blood was a little excessive. I mean, she probably survive, I doubt they kill anyone off. But damn, with that amount of blood, she should be instantly dead now. >_<

damn u Oriana!

Also, I understand Index's "Walking Church" is pretty high.
But what's the hierarchy of the crosses revealed so far?

I liked Misaka's ThunderPunch.

Super perfect! 10/10!

Many surprises this episode:

- Finally Touma and Himegami! The ones that should really be together!

- Tsuchimikado mentioning his magic name and going all out! As thought he is strong! (considering effects of being an esper as well that limits his magic powers)

- Shelly again? I thought they put her in a jail or something! Now she is is babysitting Orsola!

- Himegami beng injured, the "zetsubo" soundtrack again, Komoe trying to heal Himegami through magic, it was all so touching.

I hope like Tsuchimikado that Kanzaki appears! She needs to make Oriana into shreds with her Nanasen.

So far, the St Peter's Cross is one of the greatest treasure of the Rome Catholic Church. I can understand why they wouldn't want to bring it out of their vault cause they wouldn't want to risk losing it.

Ah I had almost forgotten about Sherry Cromwell.

As it turns out aside from a golem user, she was one of Necessarius top decoders as well. So yeah both her and Ursula would have lots of fun times together.

One might say it's a worse punishment for her, heh.


P.S - that scene where Stiyl text to Touma the information about the Cross was probably the direct Italian text that Ursula had sent him

I don't know how common of an urban legend it is, but I once read about it in an interview with an ex-AV actress who recounted some of her middle/high school memories (which would've been during the early to mid 90s). Apparently, it was locker room talk among girls.

So, Index will be a bystander in this arc? Her knowledge will be useful. Poor Himegami.

I'm loving this arc, actually. Not sure why people are comparing it to Deep Blood, I'm not getting the same "bored off my ass" feel I got back then.

This ep:
+Touma failing a lot
+Mikoto jealousy
+Himegami is useful (I momentarily feared they would kill her off, if only for a second)
+Komoe is useful, and showing her mad magician skillz
+Bluff FTW.... I'm a sucker for a well done bluff
And,
++Styl has to buy a train ticket... I'm surprised, for all his preparation, he went to a Japanese city with the intention of chasing an elusive target and didn't think to get an appropriate train pass? For shame!

I sense a new joke coming: An Italian Catholic and a Black English Jew walk into a British Library and.....

Anyway, my thoughts.


Aisa NOOOOOO!!!!

Damm you Oriana! First it was Seiri, now Aisa! I hope Touma kicks her ass hard!
