After the last vol I half expect the girls to team-up in the next one and have a cyber/drug-induced/magical/["insert" fantasy pretext here] orgy.

Spolier alert: in the ending of the story the girls go outside and say "omfg! there's boys out there?!" : D

lolol......
Maybe they realize that the boys life in outside world are not the same as BL comics...
"A brother who can't protect his sister can't even be called a man!"...
C'mon Ichika.., you're not Obito.....
But for me. A guy who didn't realize/understand girls feeling is nothing but rubbish (like himself)...

After reading the latest spoiler and illustrations of Index NT 9, I just pray in my heart that Izuru could do half the developments and awesome stuffs Kamachi'd done in the next year. I mean I kind of expect more from a series where hot-headed teenagers wear suit that can annihilate armies, we has (maybe) a conspiracy of some kinds and we've some clues about what is it as well as some developments about it (aka the bunny-girl, trolling, evil genius mad scientist, Tabane,...) and you give us some half-heart rom-com in the next volume ? COME ON!

P/S: Sorry about the rant, and I'm a friend of this account's owner and he just let me borrow his so I can post some questions about series I like in here. Don't blame this on him.

Just another complain. Can't blame you, though. But just don't compare Izuru here. That is just enough mention of Kamachi.

Yeah, there's enough Kamachi-wank all around, and there are worse novel than I.S., period.

I.S. just get the butt of all jokes treatment because it's famous.

More like many people have high expectations for this series only to... you know, be dissappointed.

You mean when almost everyone expecting a clusterfuck and mediocre but fun series but instead get a really shitty half-baked series full of pointless antic and fanservice?

Nah, that only apply to volume 8.

It's simply of their projection of Faith and Idea. When they don't have their Toma, it's a failure.

Well, it's not just famous. It's also annoyingly good. Yes, annoyingly.

As far as I can tell the author wrote this about three things: Robots, characters, and harem rom-com. The first two he does exceedingly well. The third he does so horrifically bad it comes off as a parody. We love the robot fights, all of the characters (even Mr. Clueless himself) have tons of fans, and then we get to the harem part and everything goes to hell in a hand basket.

seriously, think about how great this series would be if instead of a harem, we had their original motives expanded on.

Spoiler for How they could have been written:


Sorry for the rant, but this could be so much better

Eh, the three-volume straight repetition of 'tournament -> tournament interrupted -> new girl and/or Houki gets powerup' before Vol8 kinda fits your description too. Vol8 was just more blatant in its execution.

There's random fanservice, and there's "the translator feels unclean"

Readers came to expect repetitive volume, they don't expect volume 8.

It's hilarious when the action scenes and plot are better, the harem aspect considered even worse.

I repeat a previous question, but volume 9 when? I'm finishing the side stories, and even if sometimes IS makes me roll my eyes, it's entertaining.
I hope it's before i start my go to all Index novels. Because that will keep me occupied for a really long time.

I'm sorry. I haven't found myself having fun with Izuru's sense of plot at all.

I'm here for the setting. I follow the voice actresses until their characters regress into yanderism. I might even play the mmo if it existed.

But the plot ain't why I'm here.

Hold the phone, IS has a plot? I thought this was just about a guy flying around in a robotic death suit while surrounded by beautiful girls vying for his attention.
