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

"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

The second season of To Aru Majutsu no Index continues from where the first season left off. Based on the popular Light Novel series, the story takes place in Academy City: a City where 80% of the population are students trained to develop superhuman powers through scientific methods. These students are known as “Espers”. But outside this city exists a religious fraction that can use Magic to counter Esper abilities. This fraction strongly detests the Science side and the two sides have been plotting each others destruction. Kamijyo Touma, the protagonist of this story, possesses a right hand that will negate all magic and esper read more

Return to the world of Science and Magic with Touma & Index.
After the slightly successful, often enjoyable first series, J.C Staff fires off with the continuation of Touma's dilemma within Academy City.

Story: 8/10 - The story that made the first series popular returns in its sequel. Here, the story kicks off with Touma attempting to finish his summer homework before the next day. Those who despised the slow pacing of its predecessor can rest easy - the series so far does a decent job of getting right into the action while reintroducing the familiar cast at the same time.

Art: 10/10 - I always loved Toaru's read more

Recommendations

Anime: Ao no Exorcist
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.

Anime: Bakemonogatari
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.

Anime: Strike the Blood
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.

Anime: Owari no Seraph
Both shows use outlandish contrivances that evoke strong emotion. While I find their ridiculous inventions equally bizarre, the frequency differs. So does the emotion I get. With Index II, almost the entire show had me falling off my chair laughing. Owari no Seraph occasionally frustrated me, inciting me to shout things like "who came up with that!?!?!!" Still, I think people who enjoy all the crazy, random, stupid crap the anime industry comes up with will like both series.

Anime: Samurai Champloo
Leader of Amakusa (In the first arc) is exactly like Mugen.

Anime: Durarara!!
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.
