The story is set in a world where supernatural powers exist through science, and magic exists through religion.

In the story, Touma Kamijou is an ordinary high school boy with terrible academic scores and a power called Imagine Breaker. Imagine Breaker can defeat any other power, but it also undermines Kamijou's own good luck. His Imagine Breaker's immense strength is literally immeasurable, so hapless Kamijou is listed at the supernatural level of 0. He happens to meet a girl in white hanging off his window balcony. The girl says she is being chased by sorcerers, and Kamijou learns that the girl is a Church of England nun whose memories have been forcibly replaced by Index-Librorum-Prohibitorum — the 103,000 forbidden texts of the Church.

Since, there wasn't a review written for the particular manga I felt there was one needed. ( be wary this is my first review )
The manga itself is a bit shaky since the English translations aren't up-to-date if you want to watch or read more watch the anime online, or read the light novels at baka-tsuski.
Now to the review,
Story 7/10;
The story is wonderful, it includes your average MC and is a great pick for those of you who like characters who are really dull when it comes to 'love'. It also adds the drama elements not strong enough to tear up about, but enough to read more
I found this review Helpful


Manga: Mx0
Both series deal with two guys who end up in magical situations by accident, one has a magic power of it's own tho', and one.. not. They get in to all kinds of situations involving magic and other powers, fights or just nonsense, both shows deal with a great amount of action, to both, there's also a side of comedy, drama and a bit of romance.

Manga: Juhou Kaikin!! Hyde & Closer
Well... the character designs are similar, and the storyline's kinda similar.. someone with a lot of magical/special abilities appears, and you have to defend against people that attack you, making friends and allies as you go..

Manga: Iris Zero
Toru is born into a world where powers are normal, and he is isolated because he has no power.
Touma lives in a city where powers are normal, but not quite the majority. He has no 'power' per se, only a strange, unexplainable ability called "Imagine Breaker".
They're both really good.

Manga: Over Image
In both series the main male leads have a power to "break another's imagination (power)" in their right hands.

Manga: Nisekoi
Well first of all, the main character has lots of misfortune, but these later lead up to a little harem i guess. Nisekoi however has lot more romance while TAMNI has some romance(sub genre)
These manga may be very different but in some aspects they are the same. For example they both have a mc who do stuff for the girls, which makes them like em.

Manga: Psyren
As well as Psyren as To Aru Majutsu no Index deal with teenagers getting in weird circumstances through new things, in this an unknown "nun"which suddenly hanged over the balcony, and in that one it's a card to use in phone cells. Sounds different? Well it is. BUT! Once they get to know in what situation they are in and in which one they could get in. They accept it and follow the path that is needed. Then some major battles involve, which share the same feeling, as well as the other characters they meet on their paths
