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.

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


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.
