I thought the arc that stated the series were stronger then then the ones near the end. Starting with the Heaven Fall arc and moving towards this one they have been kind of a disappointment. I think I will jump to Railgun before returning to Index. Although I have to say that was a disappointing ending.

The show is going down hill because the characters hold it back WAY to much. If they tried to play it off any other way Touma would be out of the show in no time do to his extreme weakness to his ability (enemies have to be stupid in order for him to win Ex. if they were smart they would shoot him with a gun). And Index's personality doesn't leave much room for a variety to how things can happen with her unless they randomly throw in more powers for her. The only way this show could be saved is adding in another more interesting character for a lead or at least a main side character.

Ultimately I wasn't very impressed with this show. Touma's a pretty generic hero, Index is neither funny nor cute in my honest opinion, and the fights got bogged down with entirely too much motivational speaking. The intensity of the earlier arcs really seemed to have disappeared; where was all the gore and the insanity of Accelerator's fight, the redhead guy getting flayed alive, Touma's arm getting hacked off?!?

I'll give it a 6/10 ... might try Index II later, or Railgun. I might actually watch Railgun before I subject myself to more irritating Index ... of the two main love interests, Railgun girl is far and away preferable to that useless, glutinous little nun. Granted, if Index shows more of her fighting abilities like she did in the next-to-last episode, she might gain some small measure of redemption. I still want to see Touma dump her for Misaka tho. Touma x Railgun ftw.

Before episode 16 - 8/10

After episode 24 - 7/10 nearly going to 6/10

I actually had to fast forward the scenes of hyouka before it bores me off.

Well at least theres railgun to watch before moving on to season season.

Last arc really wasn't that great it was actually pretty damn boring. I'm not really sure what to rate this because it was enjoyable and the characters were fun, but man there was a lot of stupid things that happened, I'll be nice and give it an 8 for now.

Ok, nice fight that Toma had with that rock magician, but isn’t his punches/strength just a little over exaggerated? He punched her onto a wall and there was a huge dent in it. He punched her and she flipped. Since when did Toma become the Hulk? And why wasn’t he this strong from the start? It would have made it a whole lot better if he was strong since the beginning. And how did Hyōka go from being a distraction for Index to get away, to doing a super smash kick on the rock giant and then stopping its punch all epic-like? Why didn’t she kick ass from the start if she was so strong? Lol, Toma runs in at the perfect time and says a whole sentence mid-air as he punches a rock giant and comes out unhurt. Typical anime bullshit, no realism at all. And I just thought about it. What’s up with that weird magician floating upside down giving out orders to people all the time? Does he just float there all day? Every day? And why the hell is Toma being punched and lectured at the end saying that he caused trouble? Are they f***ing stupid or something? He should be getting praised and given an award for saving people’s lives and solving a city crisis. Wtf!? I hate when animes always give the main character bullshit like this for no reason at all! Why did Hyōka disappear? There’s no reason. In fact there wasn’t even an explanation to how she magically materialized by touching Index. One thing it did right is that it explained that she wasn’t just made out of dust, but made by that upside down magician guy.
Once last thing…Lol…how is Index able to bite Toma’s whole head like that? Is that magic too or is her mouth really open that wide? And she doesn’t mind the hair in her mouth when she bites his head like that? lmao

All things said, this show was somewhat enjoyable, just all the illogical things in it really pissed me off. so I give it a 5/10
It's not that I'm being harsh, I'm just being real.

Gave the show an 8 out 10, but sometimes there was too much talking when there should be action and too much talking during the action (Angel Fall Arc).

Best part of this episode was the cat. I found Sphinx just chilling on Index's head along with his reaction to the lack of food in the fridge at the end amusing.

Overall, this series was okay. It had a pretty good start but I kind of lost interest by the end. If this series had been "The Accelerator and Misaka Show (featuring Last Order and the Sisters)" I would have been much happier with it.

I LOVE THIS ARC ! I LOVE THIS SERIES!!! PERFECT, EPIC ending!!! Touma's the BOSS, KO that Sherry BAM!!!LOL! and for ONCE he going to hospital without any injuries! looool Hyouka left beautifully. and INDEX CUTE AS EVERRR <333 Ofc we still have some unanswered questions like Aleister.....what is he after.... and Laura Stuart the archbishop o.OOO, AND Index still has those grimoires in her head! OBVIOUSLY To be continued in Season 2....HEHEHE! BUT this is MOST SATISFYING Ending for SEASON 1. Action-packed! I feel that it's far better than Railgun in story, excitement and I like the Index cast more. This series 10/10 score! GO INDEX!!!

Yeah, about halfway through I said to hell with taking this series seriously. Index, the show, is entertaining. Very entertaining at times, but it definitely doesn't have the qualities to make a great, or even good, show. I think the show tried to hard to sound intelligent at times and, if the series is as faithful as some people say, then I blame the source material.

I don't blame it on the massive cast of characters, I blame it on terrible writing and it's god awful protagonist. Let's face it, Touma is a very shounen type of lead. "Your wrong because your arguing with me, the hero, who is obviously right, because I'm the main character!" Give me a break.


Pretty much the same. But, now I wonder if the source material is really at fault. I may check them out some day.

Now, on to Railgun!

worst... ending... ever... with closure like that, it's no wonder they need sidearcs. not that it was bad, it had a great cast of very interesting characters, except for hyouka, i blame her for ruining the ending. she almost redeemed herself multiple times by doing something cool, but her scenes were too full of "oh poor me i'm a monster" speeches to even begin to compensate, not to mention whining constantly and generally being the most annoying stereotypical character in the entire series. so watch because it's a great series, ignore that one character they brought in for more fanservice and forgot to put a personality in.

How come no one figured out that he lost his memories? Tsuchimikado said he knows everything about him but does he know that?

Just finished this series. I enjoyed some bits, others I didn't

I like the parts with Misaka and Accelerator, I thought those two characters were like the only redeeming quality of the show.

Touma is just a generic "I'm going to save everyone" MC while Index is flat out annoying(I don't know how people can enjoy characters like her).
The show had several retarded parts
(for example, how in a society as advanced as Academy City are there still magicians retarded enough to not know how a brain works?)
and I didn't really like the whole "churches using magic" stuff

Overall, this show gets a 4 or 5 out of 10 from me
I don't know if I should continue onto Index II because I don't want to watch another series of this crap. I have, however, watched Railgun and I thought that was rather enjoyable.

Indeed this was quite cheesy. The second half and especially the last few episodes were pretty weak, but the first half was so damn enjoyable. Great cast of characters and interesting plot premise. I thought Touma was a pretty damn good MC, dont get why he gets so much hate, but Misaka is superior, I'll admit that.

10/10

Also this final episode does not satisfy me completely, there are always the same mistakes that disrupt the narrative, I hope the second series is not so deficient! D:

Guys, I just realised, Touman's Imagine Breaker has another ability!...it warps space and time around him, giving him the ability to monologue endlessly!

Also, Kazakiri is a terrible character.

Nice ending episode, my eyes got moist and I got pumped up for the next season as well. I'm soo looking forward to it.

1. Characters. +1. This anime has some nice characters, especially Touma, Tsuchimikado aaaaaand Accelerator.
2. Atmosphere. +1. The atmosphere was decent at all the time imo, even very good at times.
3. OST. +1. This anime has the best OPs ever!
4. Animation. +1. I guess it was ok.
5. Background story. +1. Well, there is some kind of a background story, at the moment it's more like collection of many characters' stories, but I guess that I wasn't left unsatisfied when it comes to this.
6. Storyline. +1. Not a real storyline, but a collection of stories, I think that was just about ok/great, I think this style fits the anime way more.
7. Ending. +1. Yeah, the ending wasn't anything concluding, but it felt great, I even almost cried, it was just this lightly dramatic :D And we even got kind of a cliffhanger as well.
8. Drama. +1. The drama here was light most of the time, but I think it was still great, and wasn't out of place or too shallow.
9. Overall affect. +1. I liked this anime and found it kinda unordinary in many ways. It wasn't the best thing since Suzumiya, but it was still good enough. I also liked very much the concept about Psychic abilities and Magic clashing in one world and Touma being in the center of the whirlpool made things even better.
Bonus(extra) point for:...

Overall score: 9/10. Would watch S2.

Okay, well that was underwhelming. It started off well enough but the longer it went on the more repetitive it became. Touma's powers are both OP and lame as hell. Every single fight consists of him running away until he can touch them(Even if he shouldn't be able to)

Accelerator, was a big disappointment. He starts off as a total badass psycho who logically should be able to take Touma down with ease but instead he gets knocked out because he runs up on him despite not being a physical fighter.He got cocky. One time is understandable but no he does it multiple times in the same episode. Then in episode 19 & 20 he's suddenly feeling bad about killing 10,000 girls. I mean....what? If he killed 1-100 then it might have been more believable but 10,000 and suddenly you have regrets? Either way, he and Mikoto were the only characters I actually liked.

I could deal with the cliches, lapses in logic, lack of character development and annoying two leads each separately but all at once makes for a pretty bad experience. Giving it a 6/10 but I'm somewhat tempted to give it a 5/10. Maybe I'll check out Railgun at some point but no interest in season 2 of Index.

My problem with this show is that it felt like too many things happening at the same time and it was just too rushed and messy.Like I felt a lot of arcs would have been a lot better if they weren't so fast-paced.
Also too much fan-service for my taste.
the ending was alright,but not great.I didn't really like the last arc,it was decent at best.And of course in the end Index is hungry but instead of reaching for the food,she bits Touma's head and the food falls to the ground,seems like a smart thing to do..or not.

Best things for me were Misaka and Touma.hope the 2nd season is better.

This anime started out well enough, but it kind of tapered off. The introduction of tons of other female characters vying for the MC was tedious at best.

And the stupid mechanic of him losing his memory to further these events was very annoying. If it fit into the story some other way it would have been fine, but it was simply to justify this unnecessary part of the anime.

However there are elements of the show that I find very enjoyable. Gonna marathon season 2 and see how it turns out.

Also, as has been mentioned his power his stupid at best, it's so forced how he uses it at some times. He should have been able to extend it or something as time went on. but no just punch! pow! zap! slam! gg. at least he doesn't yell "Imagine Breaker!" with each attack. I can take solace in that.

Even if he had his memories the plot would be the same.He only needs to learn again about those that he forgot.Something that stopped ever since the Sisters arc.

Why should he have been able to extend it when he doesnt even know what it is or where it came from?

Meh, I think this show was decently alright. 7/10

I don't see why Misaka Mikoto is so popular though. I will watch the Railgun series and see if that sheds some light on it. Hopefully, the Railgun series doesn't have as much religion in it as this one although I am not holding my breath.

This was a pretty half-assed arc. Not only that, but this anime as a whole failed to impress me. I'm very unlikely going to continue this series even if I want to. It just isn't good.

All characters had some development. Except Touma, the main character. 24 episodes later he is still yelling the same self-righteous stuff, using the exact same power in exactly the same way, getting into the same generic accidents with girls etc. I'm not even sure what this anime was about. Index is introduced as somebody very important, and all of a sudden she becomes a pointless side-character, whose only purpose is to misunderstand Touma. What a waste of potential.

Actually liked the first season quite a bit even though Touma is really overpowered. Accelerator was easily my favorite character so far and I can't wait to watch season 2. This gets an 8/10 from.

Well, I just finished this series. Index has got to be the worst character I've seen in a while. I mean, who the fuck bites someone all over when they get angry over petty little things? - 4 points because of Index.

Time to marathon season 2. Railgun is better imo.

Didn't like this arc too much, because for some reason I didn't like Hyouka. Also, a question: if science is so advanced, then why do they still only have machine guns and not something more powerful, e.g. railguns?

Why would the police use railguns?Especially when they exist to control the students, not to fill them with holes?.

And they(Academy City,not Anti-Skill) have them.They just dont use them on students for no reason.As for the magician, Academy City itself didnt care about what she did.

They are not just controlling them but protecting them, and since those students are not "normal" they should have something Anti-espers/Anti-magicians otherwise they are completely useless.

By control I meant maintain peace.Anyway..

Magic isnt supposed to exist.

Considering that the only have problems against magicians because thy have no info about them and the powerful espers(level 5s), there is no reason to use something like that. You dont see policemen using rocket launchers if the robbers have armored vehicles(with or without guns). And dont forget that Anti-Skill is basically teachers and other adults protecting the students for free, because they want to.

And there is always Judgement that even has Level 4s, that can help them.

This is one of the most inconsistent shows I think I've ever seen. I disliked the first arc, hated the second one, liked the third one, absolutely detested the fourth one, liked the fifth one and had an okay time with the last one. It's super-generic, very badly organized, and painfully bad in spots, but there are some good ideas on display here. And hell, there was a really solid performance from Kana Asumi in the last arc, so that was nice, although, I laughed when Touma just happened to find Hyouka at the end of this episode.

Why the bittersweet ending? :(
Well, not that much bittersweet, but still, felt kinda unnecessary that she disappeared. But at the same time, I guess it will come back because of that Aleister plan.

Kuroko make me laugh so much with all her crazy attempt toward Misaka :P
Misaka is so cute too, the way she got embarrassed while being close to him :3
Himegami trying to be moe was funny too.

Touma sure brofist a lot. Now, he brofisted a golem.

Isn't it a bit dangerous to jump on someone while being meters and meters from the ground, Index?

Well, now, up to Railgun bitches! More Misaka! More tsundereness! More Kuroko lewdness! Woot!

Well this arc was quite average. Nice to see Misaka 20001 by hospital Accelerator's bed in the end.
I liked all the previous arcs though. Touma is pretty cool, Index isn't as terrible as people make her to be and of course much less Misaka than in Railgun so I rate it higher - 7/10 from me. Wasn't as childish as Railgun too.

I hope there's more Kanzaki in s2.

"Your personality of going all out when it comes to women..." Devil's Blood to Touma haha. That pretty much sums up the entire Index series. Touma is sucha feminist yea!!! YES FIGHT FOR THE WOMEN!!

That scene with Last Order with Accel was awesome.
I wonder if we get to see the Daihesei Festival in the next season!!!

This show has no sense of direction. It starts out promising, but the plot changes on a whim and it happens OVER AND OVER AND OVER again. By the time you reach the end, it's like you're watching an entirely different show.

Villains are introduced, then disappear. Characters are introduced, then their motives and personalities change abruptly. I still don't know what the fuck the main plot/conflict is. Writers, please: just stick to one fucking thing and then build upon it. As the show progressed, I found myself less and less engaged and eager to watch the next episode.

But the worst part is, the protagonist transforms from a very likeable guy into your typical protagonist with a "helping people problem" once his memory is wiped.
