Also I never will consider Christian Bale Batman as a true batman. Don't use the movie batman in this

Bale was a better Batman then a lot of the other ones, he is in the top 3 imo.

Well, in contrast with Index who doesn't even go to school or Accelerator who was raised as a weapon of mass destruction, he's a normal school boy, for example. His school is also full of level0s who didn't get any sort of special treatment like Tokiwadai students.

Not for me. I don't consider the movie to be the worst incarnation, but it isn't the best either.

You know I want to know if Laura is going to turn Index into a Magic God now that she going to do something because Crowley isn't even trying to hide anymore?

Also something I see about Magic God they all have thing to do with Death and that a sacrifice alway was needed to complete there transformation into a Magic God.
Othuins lost her eye and her world.
High Preist sacrifice his life and everything and turning into a mummy.
Nephthys was born from the sacrifice of thousands of servent who was buried alive which there King.
So this make me think that all Magic Gods are only competely born after a Sacrifice of some kind.

But this lead to the question if this is true what will Laura have Index sacrifice to complete her transformation into a Magic God her memory again?

This also lead into the question what if the true reason why Index memorys were sacrifice each year was not to keep her under the Chruch's contarl but was to one day complete her own transformation into a Magic God and a reason why this may be true is we all know there were two remote contarl for Index and there John Pen mode too which mean there would be no need to erase her memorys each year because they could contarl Index at any time.

Now that I look back this whole Story Arc from NT11-15 have had an underlining theme of sacrifice. Now I want to know if NT16 will also have that underlining theme of sacrifice.

Now that I look over NT again The Story Arc that was NT1-10 had a Magic Side Climax and this Story Arc seen to be leading to a Science Side Climax, does this mean that the Next Story Arc will have a Divine/Miracle Side Climax because these are the three sides in Index.

I still don't get why some people like this volume 10/10.

Any reasons?

Just list any peeves you have with the volume and we'll might be able to explain why we like it in the form of a rebuttal.

To be honest I hope the books after this one will tell us what IB is to the science side because the Story Arc before this one tell us what IB is to the Magic Side The Hope and Dreams of Magician and a point to return to if Magic change the World to must so what does IB mean to the Science Side.

Also one thing that have bet show is people who combine two different side have the greatest understanding of IB and IT like Terra and Fiamma who combine the Divine and Magic Side or Crowley who have a combine info of all three sides or how Othuins said that Kihara Kagun would of had a greater understanding then her because he had combine info of Magic and Science Side and make me think the true reason that the Wheelchair Kihara was make to go to Baggage City was to kill off Kagun who knew to must like Crowley does to anyone who know to must or try to.

I also agree that this is probably actually the largest reason why she broke down after NT 13 which culminated in this volume. It's because Touma's words didn't make her feel any better, because of his crazy hand shenanigans at the end, and because she realizes that she depends on his comforting words far too much. This has been the case ever since that fight with Accelerator that she didn't end up joining until he was basically already down before he got up again to finish things for her. Ever since that moment, she has depended on him... The difference between the her in NT 10 and the her in NT 13 was quite... pronounced, but it's an interesting difference. I hope that later on this is analyzed in-story.
Glad someone agrees ^^ and yeah the analysis in story may come around when Touma faces her, if this is what indeed happens. In many ways the best thing that could happen story wise (at least imo) is having Misaka's change not solved by Touma. For instance, if Accelerator was the one to "solve" this, well it'd be pretty great. Tho ideally it'd be comparable to what Will-chan told to Touma in NT9, meaning the rest of the walk having to be done by Misaka alone.

there is a difference with "solving" and "beginning to solve",
toumas TnJ (like any other TnJ user, at least if it is used moderately) will only start to show the char in question that they should change something about themselfes, be it their way of thinking, living etc. (accel, fiamma)

a real "solving of the issue" was done by the character himself,
ok, there are also instances where the heel face turn was suddenly accomplished directly after a talk but that usually only happened by characters who hadnt really believed into their own ways all that much (etzali, sherry and like you said, touma in NT9)

Isn't that kinda arguing over semantics?
Othinus herself changed, but the story (and herself) never puts into question that Touma is the one who saved her from her own self. Othinus went as far as saying this was what Touma's real power is.

i guess you could say it is :/
but you are right, in either case it is the person herself, the TnJ simply showed them where they had been wrong and the change afterwards is either slower or faster depending on issue and person (it still gives the feeling that the change happening over a long time is more evident of the person in questions own will to change than the effect of a magical main character speech :/, at least it seems like to for me )

I think so too. I'd rather Accel end up stepping in as the first level 5 to step up on the big stage to point her in the right direction as well as to have him confront Aleister's plan since he is really the true dark side of AC. Also so that he could get a bigger part for once...

I think Touma should be the one who faces her. After all, he is a important factor and the reason for her. Besides Mikoto and Touma have an outstanding talk since NT13. This could be the perfect opportunity for them.
