Synopsis

Set in a city of not only scientifically advanced superhuman students, but in a world where magic is also real. Kamijyo Touma's right hand, the Imagine Breaker, will negate all magic, psychic, or divine powers, as well as his own luck. One day he finds a young girl hanging on his balcony railing. She turns out to be a nun from the Church of England, and her mind has been implanted with the Index Librorum Prohibitorum—all the magical texts the Church has removed from circulation.

STORY: story of To Aru Majutsu no Index is long and complex. While at first it will look like every volume is a completely different story with little to no relations to another, later on all plot threads will slowly be put together and you will be surprised just how far into the future the writer planned certain plot threads.
Also, expect a lot of Scientific Exposition and Religious (especially Christian) symbolism.

ART: with this being a Light Novel, there is not much to say about the art tough most of illustrations are pleasant to the eye.

CHARACTERS: there are many characters in TAMNI, ranging from overpowered Espers read more

I find Kazuma Kamachi's and Ryohgo Narita's styles to be very similar and they're both extremely good. Both series also have a huge cast of characters and each volume does well to make sure that all the cast gets some focus. The main characters differ from volume to volume.
-Magic and Science. But TAMNI seratates them, MKNR unites them.
-Academy. It's a school life i mean.
-Harem. The protagonist somewhat becomes so popular.
