Before I begin my review, let me share with you a little story

I once went to the "Women Are Neglecting Kitchens Society" ( Yes, I do know that abbreviates to W.A.N.K.S) Don't worry, all they do is tell "Women and Kitchen" jokes to each other. Anyways, the committee was proposing "Kamijou Touma" as their society's mascot. Bear in mind I did not watch any episodes of "Toaru Majutsu no Index" at all so I had to ask, "Who the heck is Touma??"
My membership got instantly revoked.

So after watching the first season, I still did not understand why is Touma is treated like a hero for read more

To be honest, after the first season, I had pretty low expectations for this second installment of Magical Index, but since I'm not one to judge something by it's cover, I went and watched it all. My short opinion: Pleasant surprise. Way better than the first season in every way, but has many problems still.

The first season of A Certain Magical Index was, frankly, a confusing mess. (See my review on the first season's page.) Despite the unique and extremely intriguing setting, the story was jumping around like a wild firehose at full pressure, aimless and even major plot points went woefully unexplained while read more

"I'll break this illusion, with my right fist!"

A Certain Magical Index should really be renamed, and I have the perfect title: A Certain Frustrating Show. I don't think I've ever actually been so frustrated with a show quite like this before, not because it's bad, but because it's good, and very enjoyable - but for some bizarre reason, the show never uses its latent potential to become something truly outstanding.

Let me get one thing out of the way first: Index II is a significant step-up from the first series, the first episode was actually better than nearly every single moment of the original series (minus read more

Story - 6

After watching the first season I hoped that the plot would finally unfold in to something bigger and better then the first season. Well it didn't!

For the most part it was worse and only close to the end got better. The problem with the story is that it isn't directional and is repetitive. It's because some villain shows up from the religion side (usually) and wants to do something bad. And then Touma comes to the rescue. And this happens like every time through out the season. Seriously the villains seem to change like every 3-5 episodes and only thing that they have read more

Recommendations

Both involved in religious organizations with a supernatural twist. Action scenes are quite similar, as well.

Ao no Exorcist focuses on demons and exorcists (obviously; just as the title suggests), while To Aru Majutsu no Index deals with espers and magicians, as well as saints and priests with powers.
The setting takes place inside a futuristic city where magic and science powers coexist. The male leads have a large female harem, probably because of the male leads' habit of always helping damsels in distress, with no regard to their own lives. Both male leads' signature finishing move is to punch their opponents in an exaggerated manner.
To aru kagaku no railgun is a side story of it
The strongest resemblance between the two reside in the fashion in which the protagonist build his harem, literally through throwing their lives away to save girls who they just met. Both MCs, though without strong ability power, have a strong sense of justice that can not be swayed no matter what. Of course, the main girl in each arc inevitably end up falling in love with our hero.

Furthermore, these anime both revolve around supernatural occurrences. While Toaru is based on more of a magic vs. science world, Bakemonogatari is a reinvention of Japanese myths.
Leader of Amakusa (In the first arc) is exactly like Mugen.
Both anime show us story about big city life. There are few organisations fighting with each other and on the other side we can see daily routine of quite untypical teenagers. Both series have a large number of heroes. Each of them has its own personality, individual traits, habits and vices.Their fate is often intertwined with each other, complicating the whole story-line. Consummate sociologist will definetly find himself in both stories. However, the plot in Durarara!! is conducted in more mature way.
