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.

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.

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

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

I gave the first series of Toaru Majutsu no Index a whole 10, but I'll give NT a minus 1, to a total of 9.

Story : 10
It's still as epic as ever. Kamachi Kazuma never fails at giving his readers an epic and complicated story. The war between science and magic at the scale of the world is still masterfully written. NT is still one of the LN with the best story aspect.

Art : 9
The art is great, but there are some (not much) LN with better illustrations. So I'll hold back a little and give it 9 for art.

Character : 10
Accelerator is the best!!! read more

Manga: Mitou Shoukan://Blood Sign
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.
