If there is one thing i hate the most in series (other than obvious multi season series that get cut after 1 season) it is when the last episode in the season is so completely not epic that you couldn't tell it was the season finale unless you were told straight to your face.

Lets face it, there was no epic finish, no epic struggle, no epic revelation. Just a short, maybe 5 minute fight where toma punched the mage a few times and then hit the golem. Never any suspense and it never really looked like he was even trying, much less worrying that index might actually die. He spent more time doing his "generic perfect good guy hero" rant than actually fighting her!

And yes, i agree with the person saying the best part of the episode was the end scene hinting at the second season which is a shame because generally when a series hits its last episode, you expect something memorable.

I've never read the novel or what not, but the story cannot be this... dry in its native format. This season has not just been an introduction to the world and characters, it has been maybe 1/3 that at most and the rest random daily life. The least they could have done was add some resemblance of struggle to it other than Touma creating his inter ability harem. I can't think of a time i saw an anime with a season finale so uninspiring.

So they throw Aleister Crowley's motives and Laura Stuart at us... only to announce that they're animating a spinoff series instead. Such a great move that was.

Ha. I love the part when Touma comes to the doctor and says that he didn't get hurt this time. It seems like JCStaff knows that and decided to poke fun at that.

The wait for 2nd season of Index would have stayed the same anyway. Maybe even the staff ain't the same.
With the epilogue, they wanted to show two things:
1. There will definetely be a 2nd season
2. 2nd season will be more connetced with the main plot

They made fun of that few times already.

The series itself doesn't have a good story to begin with. There were just too many characters. Although, it's not the main factor of why the show didn't shine at all. Probably, because the story is not hitting on the right direction. It might be intended at the very beginning. Therefore, it requires another season.

Anyway, this series itself has its own ups and downs. I didn't fully enjoyed it like the other shows last year. There were a couple of good ones and a lot of bad ones too. It doesn't stand out too much except for its entire set of characters. That's the only thing that kept me watching until the end. I am not after the story anymore after I watched it halfway. I watched this show simply for fun and that's it.

Another thing is that the action scenes were always cut out short. Each episode doesn't stir you up a bit to watch the next episode. However, I did enjoy watching him build up his harem.

Therefore, I gave this a final score of 6. It's still watchable but I wouldn't recommend watching it if you are after the story of this show. I hope that the story will be filled up on season two.

it wasn't a great ending to the season, but wasn't bad per se. It left things open as if it wasn't the end. i personally would probably give it a 7.5 but since theres no decimal ratings in this system heh, ill give it an 7 because the first half was capturing and interesting while the 2nd half was an assortment of short arcs that didn't really have many interesting stories or characters. Especially the Accelerator arc. It went way too fast where in the prior episodes he was a maniacal killing psycho and now he suddenly becomes a good guy without a reason or enough time to comprehend. It needed more development. Also the 2nd half when touma loses his memory kinda pissed me off because it was like he was starting off new when the audience didn't need that at all because we had already gotten to like the prior "i lost my memory" touma. For me personally at that point i lost interest in touma as a leading character. I think thats the problem because touma's state of mind was always "who's this? and whats happening? (in a more annoying way)" when the audience already knew and was pointless. The first half was story driven while the 2nd latter was like fillers. Well to finish it off, this became a mediocre series, but a good way to past time.

That was a nice ending. Would be nice to see Hyouka again though.
I'm looking forward to the side story.

Based on the light novels, there's just not enough material for a second season yet. With that said, I'm just looking forward to more Biribiri lol.

Cool anime, I liked it.
It seems all set for a 2nd season too (still waiting for Shana 3 too xD)... At least the Biribiri Spin-off has been confirmed for now.

naked mikoto and kuroko at the end was a nice touch.

fukou da being the last words of the series was very nice.

good to see the beginning of the next season will involve stiyl and uneven jeans-tan.

rounded this up to a 6 because of mikoto, last order, and accelerator. the characters are excellent but the actual events never seem to get tied up properly. overall, a mostly enjoyable watch.

You kidding me? There's like 17 novels. They adapted six. There's almost enough for another two seasons. (Not that I've read them).

At any rate, second half was far weaker than the first half. So-So ending, to an alright show that didn't really innovate, but didn't do anything really wrong with the exception of inundating me with a ton of jargon.

6/10(from 5/10) because of Mikoto.

Ok series. What annoyed me most about it however was the endless dialogue scenes that Touma would have, which would last like half an episode. Nevertheless, I liked the characters and I wouldn't mind watching a second season since the ending was left pretty open. (6/10)

damn that foggy shower censor. =P

i was a little surprised they let kazakiri disappear, the goodbye was actually quite touching.

otherwise, i thought this episode was a microcosm of the season. good comedy, nicely done action, and way too much self-righteous, nonsensical dialogue bringing down all the good parts. 24 episodes through, a probable 2nd season pending, and I still couldn't tell you what the story is actually about.

i am looking forward to the biribiri spinoff though!

After finishing the first season I'm still under the impression that Touma is God's right hand so to speak. The reason for this is because in the bible the term "God's right hand" in prophecy refers to the Messiah to whom is given the power and authority to subdue His enemies (Psalm 110:1; Psalm 118:16) (source I mean we have seen and heard about Angels so I wouldn't be surprised at all if Touma's power really was a gift from the gods to keep magic and ESPers in line.

I am still angry that they never got around to exposing that Touma lost his memories, I was waiting for that the whole series and left disappointed.

Thank you that was the main thing that made me mad that
The main reason this show pissed me off is the factthat they never explained his arm His arm was brought up as something being more than esper at the end and thats that, Alister has a huge plot, but i guess we never mind that.
the fact they never really explored index it was like " hey we dont have to erase her memory. Opps Touma's got erased instead oh well moving on to the next story." Well bring up new characters do some character development and get rid of them for the next episode, never fully explaining them, and basically explaining it as "well Touma has the Captain save a chick complex". The fact that the 103,000 grimoires in Index's brain were barely touched upon or used also pissed me off (except being important in the beginning), and I was hoping a relationship would actually progress with Touma and Index nope, nada.
but my biggest beef was there was no real resolution.... to ANYTHING
I feel like this show was made for kids with ADHD. Well start to explain whats going on with everyone, and everything and in the middle of explaining we are going to break off to explosions. O.O OOH light sound color, and all of a sudden it dosent matter anymore, sigh.

And the only thing that seems confirmed is a rail gun spinoff...sigh If they dont do a sequel Im going to be so disappointed in this anime 2/10 if left as is.

It was a great episode but not a really a great ending. It felt as if it was just another episode. It didn't really tie up anything at all. If I didn't check online I would think there would another episode next week... I don't know what you guys are talking about but I liked the new girl... Haha, there has to be a second season... I mean just look at the second half of the episode? It was just basically saying "The filler-like arcs are over the main story will begin" but noo... it was the end. Well, I relatively new to cliff hanger endings. Once again, great episode but... it didn't have the closure necessary to be considered a good ending. Didn't tie up anything at all, all it did was bring up more questions and make us ask "What's going to happen next"? There has to be a season 2, I mean come on... This would have made a good episode 18 where 19-24 would continue where 18 left off... actually thinking about it this would be a great episode 24 if 25-48 were based on it. There was enough cliffhangers to make a second season... I mean really... with it's own new plot and everything.

Season 2!
