I finally got around to reading the White Day SS, and LOL If/when Index series does get that far in the timeline, I seriously hope Kamachi does do a three-parter for this event

Actually, it's more like an average of 4 months.
There was an excruciating 7 month gap between the releases of NT4 and NT5.

Wait I didn't know that. I don't think I started reading the series yet when that happened. No wonder I didn't know about it.

On Wikipedia, I always saw the same months each year for the release of the books and assumed they came out every four months.

(I guess it could also be any factor of 12... but 4 is probably the most reasonable...)

There was a period when Intelivilla came out that the pattern was disrupted.

That year, there wasn't a Heavy Object volume and they only produced two Index volumes, SS not included.

It was 2012. Only NT4 and NT5 were released that year.

Do we know when, or do we just know it's not in April?

Gathering all of their comments together seemed to suggest that, while Kamijou was drunk on February 14, he had travelled around the world, resolved incidents that had put the fates of nations on the line, and saved girls’ lives left and right. It was hard to believe, but it had to be the case if they were all insisting it was.

So being drunk the a certain "Fukou da" stundent turns into a womanizing TouMAN capable of globetrottering the world in a single day , seducing any female be it saint espers nuns clones magic side angels or science side angels etc etc

and its OVER 9000 !!

WTF sex cult !!???

So, I was rereading NT8 during my commute, and I noticed this off-hand remark:

Which makes me wonder...how much of GREMLIN was privy to the information about the world's phases? Fenrir, for one, seems to be privy to it. Moreover...how much of the remainder of the magic side was privy to this information?

in Accelerator manga also was not talking about "phases"? perhaps the concept of "phases" is not secret, may be similar to the concept of a level 6, people have an idea of ​​what is, only there are no witnesses known)

I think this valid comparison, this only adds to the importance of Touma in the world to have witnessed it.

The first part of Graduation SS has been translated.

Accelerator yawned disinterestedly.
“Can’t that principal hurry up and die?”
“That type of person always lives the longest. You’re the perfect example.”
“Oh, c’mon. I know spouting bullshit is your specialty, but that’s going too far.”
“…”
“…”
Kamijou Touma and Accelerator glared at each other and each threw a punch with their full strength.
I have the biggest smile on my face right now.

I'm combing NT 9 for possibly relevant information in the future, so here are some things that stood out to me. There's a lot.

Spoiler for Length:


Apparently, there were a lot more that I failed at copying and pasting and now don't have but would especially like to mention the Misaka Mikoto reference we've gotten twice now in NT 7, NT 9 that she'll build a super powerful weapon/mecha by amassing a lot of things together.

Also the Index is a last boss theme has popped up a few times, NT 8, NT 9.

Finally, NT 9 had so many references to Mars, and desert planet/desert/planet that was nice and then got destroyed that I'm getting suspicious. I think Birdway also mentioned Mars/Moon before in one of the side-stories, so this may be referring to something else.

Also, we finally got a ghost reference from Will-san so I'm expecting ghosts soon.

When I find the rest, I'll put it up...

Index being the last boss is just a joke. Of course, the library can be used by countless villains to be, but Index herself is of no concern (so long she is well fed )

The Mars/Moon thing... dunno. I guess it is possible, but I wouldn't count on it. Kamachi tends to leave too many red herrings lying around, only to pick again one or two to use for real once in a while.

On the other hand, if we connect that with the windowless building possibly being a spaceship... hell, maybe I'm starting to buy it, but let's leave that for further on.

On Will-chan and ghosts, maybe she's talking about Hyouka? she's quite "ectoplasmic" if you ask me. It would be good to know what's going on with her, since she has been kinda "offline" lately. Of course, that may be cause she's very related to Aleister's plan, and he seems to be prowling in the shadows, biding his time...

But for the next volume... I wonder if Touma is going to be seen like a "Darth Vader" by his former allies... I would love to see something like that... Or will they blame Hothinus and say she seduced brainwashed him ?

Unless Laura sics Pendex on Touma for not sticking to the plan.

I'm going with option two. They know Touma isn't easily swayed. Mikoto will totally blame Misaki for this, though

As for predictions, I've said it before, but this volume will probably show who's really in Touma's side, that is, the real members of the Kamijou Faction.

Mikoto will realize the possibility that Touma may have a thing for blondes (Leivinia, Othinus, Misaki, etc.) and will decide to dye her hair in order to try and suit his tastes while doing the whole tsundere routine. Such is the path of a pure tsundere maiden.
