The Third World War has been ended by the efforts of Kamijou Touma. With that, he vanished. This is a world where Kamijou Touma does not exist. With the Magic Side regrouping, the Sabbath for their followers has arrived.

In the headquarters of the Science Side, Academy City's strongest Level 5 Esper Accelerator has washed his hands of the "Darkness." Along with Last Order and Misaka Worst, his days pass by peacefully with no sign of GROUP.

Hamazura Shiage has formed a new ITEM with Kinuhata, Takitsubo and Mugino. Peace has come to the hands of the alumni who have "graduated" from Academy's Dark Side at last... at least until a new evil "first year student" appears before them.

This review is going to be a sort of joint review of Toaru Majutsu no Index and its sequel New Testament. I was going to write two separate reviews but I was having a bit of trouble figuring out how to lay it out and well I am far too lazy to write two reviews in quick succession, so one it is.

I think I will start things of by saying that I am not a fan Toaru Majutsu no Index...the anime that is. When I was first introduced to this series I was honestly quite underwhelmed but then again the friend who introduced me to read more

Kamachi's absurd shounen continues. A direct continuation after toaru, shinyaku continues the tradition of Kamachi's wacky ideas that forms the toaru series. If you actually got to this part, I would assume you are a fan already, so I wouldn't bother with the premise or story and jump straight to the pros and cons.

Why you should watch Shinyaku (Pros)
-Wacky adventure
-you like Kamachi
-a lot of interesting ideas and fights
-magic vs technology (seriously if you don't get excited when robots fight magicians, you are dead inside)
-Kihara, lots and lots Kihara
-Even more character (each with their memorable design)
-the art style
-funny and entertainment

Why you shouldn't watch Shinyaku (Cons)
-It read more

Like a whirlpool, the Index franchise focuses on a story that spins and revolves detailing the events of various characters. A labyrinth of secrets, ideologies, and developments constitutes the story made up of two sides – magic and science. But yet, the world sees both sides develop with abnormality and struggles. A single word cannot describe such a struggle as a dangerous group looms in the darkness…just waiting to strike and take over, setting about a new era of desolation.

Toaru Majutsu no Index: New Testament (also known as A Certain Magic: New Testament) is the sequel of Index light novels series written by Kamachi read more

Ok. So this is one of my favorite light novel series out there so i thought of making a review for it.

It's still basically magic vs science, but in a better way than the previous series. TouMAN is here to punch girls in there faces yet again!

well so lets start with the review.
Story : as the previous Index series, this series is also a character driven story. The events happening in many protagonists lives are smoothly connected. Magic vs Science is here yet again and adds more crisp. The fight scenes are always a treat with both sides using brain & muscle to overcome each read more

Kyousuke is Touma's ideal plus accel's background with a bit of a twist added to him. Besides the info dump, the story is similar to Toaru.
