Great series, looking forward to the side stoy and hopefully season 2 down the road. I really have no complaints about this one.

I'm glad I waited till this series ended so I could watch it in one stretch since I did enjoy this series a lot but I got to agree with several posters, there's nothing as annoying as a final episode where you even can't tell if it's the last episode. And I was also hoping they would do a whole lot more with the part where he lost all his memories. Hoping at a 2nd season since this series still left so much unanswered and hopefully it has some more Touma Index moments since the second half of the season Index felt more like a supporting character then a main character.

Very fun series. Had a hiccup with that whole "angels fall" arc, but other than that it was good.

7/10 - can't wait for Rail Gun.

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.
well, there are a ton of novels left...it's not like this is the Final Episode.

The episode definitely didn't feel like an ending, or even a season ending. All I have to say is season 2, here we come. Assuming JC Staff will animate Shana 3 for Fall 2009, and then Biribiri's spin off, we'll probably have to wait until Fall 2010 for Index 2. (No I definitely don't want them to sacrifice Shana for this)

The series wasn't bad, I watched it light hearted and I actually enjoyed it quite a lot, especially the first half. The ride was fun, like a roller coster with ups and downs, and I had some great laughs. Giving it a 6/10.

The start was the start worthy of only the greatest of anime. But the rest was not so very good... this episode was no real ending, Angel Fall was one of the crapiest anime arcs ever. But the side chars pown and the story is pretty good. I like the idea of combining magic with esper powers and all.

This was a decent ep but deffinetly unworthy as an ending.

While the show had a lot of bad sides, it managed to become one of my favourite shows with its colorful cast of characters, setting and potential. 9/10 from me.
Judging by the novel summaries and spoilers, 2nd season is where things start to get interesting (can't wait for the war arcs)

Looking forward to To Aru Kagaku no Railgun anime as well. The manga was great and I have great expectations for this one. Hopefuly the author of Index and Railgun will cooporate with J.C. Staff so the anime will go beyond its manga counterpart. Just three arcs ceartanly won't satisfy me.

6/10.

If they're going to obviously include a second season or heavily hint at one, they could have made the first season, you know, good. Too many loose ends and so many barely explained arcs really crippled this show.

Schizophrenic and very inconsistent show that still ended up being rather decent overall. Not looking forward to the second season, but will watch it anyway.

6/10

I really enjoyed this series....I loved the characters, most arcs were interesting and both the soundtrack and the animation were awesome. I would've given this one a 8, but because some characters *cough*Biribiri*cough* I'm giving this a weak 9. :)

I started watching this show with some expectations and got my hopes high...
Turned out to be absolutely unsatisfying and fulfilled none of my expectations. As said somewhere above, the show is very inconsistant and barely decent and Im getting this feeling, that the makers stuffed way too much of the novels progress into the first season, thus ending up having an overload of content which resulted in showing said content in a rather poor manner.

A weak 6/10 for the sake of Misaka.

Great episode, nice ending. A bit sad Hyouka disappeared in the end. But the next season will surely be interesting. "Angels", "Heaven"... wow^^

Can't wait for Biri-biri's spin-off too :)

Not enough Misaka. Overall the show was a disappointment, I thought it'll be epic after I was impressed by the animation quality of the first few episodes. Then it quickly dropped down to a meaningless ramble of long speeches and "wtf are you doing" moments.
Show should of been called "To Aru Speechu no Touma"

This show really could've been better in many ways. It started on a decent track with some straight objectives and we understood what was going on. Then, Index became a comic relief character and the entire show went on a mumbo jumbo rollercoaster of confusion and unnecessary plot fillers. Here they have a cast of some good characters like Misaka and a few more I can't remember the names of, but none were used at their full potentials. When there was a chance, it was wasted and then came along new characters to fill in some more strange occurrences to throw us off and then cliche monologues and information we probably don't even have to care about. So, in the end, the show didn't know what to do and how to go about solving all the cans it opened. Either we get season 2 or this is it. And, by the end of the show, I totally forgot that Kanzaki was a part of the same series. I still hand it a 7 for the animation, fights, Misaka and for the first half of the show.

Why does everyone like Misaka? What did she do that was so out of the norm for tsunderes? I don't get it.

Was a pretty good anime. I know I'll be watching season 2 whenever that comes out. I think the best part of the show was Index.

The series was okay. I stopped trying to take this anime seriously like five episodes in. Sometimes it got really corny when they tried to make things serious, especially at the parts where they keep talking for an hour straight or try to be bad ass. Also I kept saying to myself while watching, wow that was dumb, who the hell cares, so predictable, calm the hell down you crazy hoe, couldn't you have done that stuff earlier, it would have saved a lot of blood, energy, and time, that was easy, wtf?, man my wang ain't hard at all from the action. A lot of things seemed forgotten all together or at least not played out well. It has some awesome potential and is great aside from the action bits. Really hope the next seasons or spin offs will be better than this as I LOVE all the characters. 7/10, Glad I finally got through this.

I like how it ends and it just doesn't feel finished, i'd rather have it that way leading into a second season, than having it climax here then start form a low point again. good stuff, sad to see if gone for a while til we get the spin off and season 2.

Maybe just because she is a tsundere that controls lightning? that's pretty cool in my book.

Yeh it feels incomplete, but that just means that we'll get a seconds season sooner or later. Or maybe it'll somehow continue in Rail Gun.

Anyway, really enjoyed the series. Great animation, funny episodes and awesome music. Also kinda got a Shana vibe from every episode. Biribiri. 9/10

Well she can create and control electromagnetic fields and use this to form a rail gun which is the most coolest thing ever! Plus it's good to see for a change a tsundere that isn't Kugimiya Rie and doesn't fail (*cough* melon *cough*)..

Well, nice ending. Some final farewells and It's shown that life of Index and Touma continues as normal. Many things were left open, though, so I hope for a second season.

I guess I don't understand because it's the first character able to control elsectricity that I don't really care about...I'll also fan flames and say that Felli from Regios and Taiga from Toradora are far better characters than Misaka, if only because there is no depth to her character and that she isn't funny.

I'd agree with this but it isn't surprising. Can anyone name one character in this series that had any sort of depth to them? Even the character the series is named after is barely developed and the main character Touma is the most generic (and thus annoying) male anime hero ever that never changes one bit throughout the series, EVEN AFTER COMPLETELY LOSING HIS MEMORY (maybe he forgot he lost his memory too?).

Misaki is just another member of Touma's harem that after saving, he discarded to fall back in to the shadows with the rest. Like the rest of his harem, it seems her sole purpose in the series is to create situations for Touma to need to rescue her.

I dislike the fact that Touma seems to be able to run at incredible speed some times, yet, sometimes looks like his body is in slowmotion... Specially when he is giving a speech while rushing towards the enemy.

On a side note, that blond bitch plot was hell too stupid.
Like, producers only picked up randomical and overused plot devices, and mixed up with even more over used stuff.

Its already the 10th time i saw a character like Hyouka on a series.
And its always like that.
She is a monster, but she doesn't know, the antagonist throws some brainwash bullshit at her, she goes emo, and tries to sacrifice her self for the ones who become her friends.
then the main character suddenly manages to run his way out of the underground, and miracously arrives at the fight scene to kick the bad guy's ass.

Damn it. Its so overused even power rangers have that.

Needs more seasons to be any good. This one was just a mashup of unrelated or semiunrelated arcs with no true central story. At the end of the episode, there was some sort of bigger picture, but with that, the first season is over.

"To Aru Kagaku no Railgun" will air in Fall 2009. That means that second season of Index will appear in either Summer or Fall 2010.

Bad things about that: long wait for Index, season 2 (of course, Railgun will greately easen the wait for that)

Good things: more novels will be released till the 3rd season ends (there are enough novels to guarantee a 3rd season and enough popularity in Japan to make it worth animating it) so the chances for the 4th season increases, as well as the chances of it being true to the novels.

I never read the novels or anything like that, but I'm curious as to if they ever go further in depth about Touma losing his memory? Perhaps its just the long breaks between each episode that I've seen, but it seems to me that plot served nearly no purpose from the time of occurrence to the end of the season. One would think it would have some sort of significance, but that's pretty much the only thing that bothered me. If anyone knows the answer to this, feel free to post on my page/send me a message. Would greatly appreciate any relief in this regards lol.
Another thing is whatever became of Sherry Cromwell. Probably arrested and all that jazz, but if they could've included a small scene of that taking place, I would also be put at ease... done with complaints.

Yeah, it got a bit repetitive and cheesy. However, the series as a whole overcame that and effectively delivered an interesting story and definitely leaves room to improve on itself. Definitely would catch on however many more season to come.

Somewhat of a biased output here though, I can't wait for the side-story with Misaka. She's my favorite character in the show. A nice, innocent girl who possess great talents. The whole confused romance part was very enjoyable trait about her and I hope there will be more in-depth there. Quite a stereotype character, but great nevertheless. Hyouka is easily my least favorite character with almost the least screentime. Once again a typical "outcast" being that "learns" a life lesson in a short amount of time and then *whoosh*, gone like that.

A few things I would look forward to in a future season(s) would be more resolve about esper vs. magic, perhaps a more defined background story about Touma's memory loss in connection with the rest of the plot, lastly the whole sects and charters and organizational stuff.

I know, I should read the novels... I will when I get around to it. This is pretty much just a rant from a lazy guy >.>

Nothing special in the ending and it will keep me hanging for a long time.

The series is very enjoyable at all aspects. No slight regrets of watching

1. Touma's not an asshole unlike many male protagonists.
2. Action are just fine
3. Harem is enjoyable
4. Comedy okay

I'll be waiting for the continuation of the story. The next season will just be a sidestory so that's different.

Overall I rate it 8.5/10 and closed it to 9/10. I'll put it to a flat 9 or even 9.5 if the ending was more like an ending.

*Sigh* Fukou da...

Such an anti-climactic ending, I'm torn between giving this 7 or 8. The animation was rather nice, while many parts of the story were left unexplained. The soundtrack was memorable even though I take half the year between every few episodes. Second season is pretty much given, considering how they showed Stiyl and the lady. I guess I'll just go with 8, since I'm an high-rater anyway *shrugs*

Are you serious... the actual story emerges in the final episode?! -_____-;;;

meh okay ending,
in the end i'd have to say that the series never reached the same level of epic as episode 02... which is kinda sad. But in the end, the pacing was a lot better in this arc.
I'm pretty sure that if you were to watch this series in order, rather then one at a time, it'd be more enjoyable

That being said, I'm actually excited for the Railgun anime. Not just because of Misaka, but more because the exposition-heavy story would actually fit in that plot. f.y.i. Railgun more follows cases that Kuroko, Misaka, and the rest of Judgement have to deal with. While it's got some cool action scene, its heart is a police/detective story. I personally enjoy the Railgun manga much more than the Index manga.

Your username matches what you say :D
Same opinion here btw, just too lazy to re-word it o.O

Seriously, the next season BETTER just stop introducing and killing off new characters, and focus on the MAIN storyline - Touma losing his memories, Misaka & Teleport girl hunting down criminals, and Accelerator with his impaired power.

Better have less-corny speech too.

I was serious at first until I saw the mini arcs. I was like disappointed after the story went overboard. I didn't expect that the show went on a different direction. I decided to watch this show with my brains out.

The action scenes were a little bit weak too.

The only thing that keeps me from watching this is the characters. Without them, I would have dropped it.

Im not complaining, I liked the series minus the magician/angel mini-arc or whatever that was, but I was wondering, why exactly havent I got bored of Touma with his almighty hand. Its kinda unfair how he owns everyone with a little punch....whatver, hopefully railgun will be better with less fill in characters

Weakest finale boss ever. Almost no character development. We got no answers and it's very open ended. Index had essentially no point and the vampire girl too did nothing. They did nothing with this interesting premise and later fights just feel lackluster. Extremely disappointed with this series. 7/10

Hmm, its a bit hard to say what i actually liked best about it...
its even hard for me to give it a precise rank.

all i can say is that i pretty much enjoyed every episode of it and i think this season is more of a appetizer(/introduction for the world/chars/plot etc.) for the following seasons!

also, i want to add that iam really fired up for the next seasons and side stories to come!

hurry up J.C. Staff!!!

I am seriously disappointed!

The last few episodes felt totally unsubstantial to me.

mixtapehaven said:

More Touma falcon punches. More cheesiness.
Well, this is definitely open for a second season.
And the ending bits, to be honest, were the best parts of the episode for me. And Laura Stewart animated is brilliant.


Agree! The ending bits saved the last episode for me. It showed the potential this show has!

Although I would rate some of the episodes with 9/10 (Misaka), overall it is just a 6/10!

0_0 .... "Electro-gasm".....you have a point there..... mmh... I think for the sake of Misaka and her sisters I will enhance the rating to 7/10 ^^

There was no final boss and there is no open end. This is just a season end. Nothing more, nothing less.

In fact, the season ending was great if you look at the fact that anime followed novels faihfully. There was no chance for it to get a normal season ending.

It was a decent ending. Everyone is happy at the end after so much conflict.. I was happy with how this series ended up other than the fact that they just keep forgeting about touma losing his memory.. but I guess it was never important than to use for one or two eps..
