"I'm the freaking heroine, and you know it! My name's on the title!!"
What the fudge happened here?
Dear J.C.Staff, are you people making fun of us? Or do you actually acknowledge your own mistakes with this franchise?
Either way, this little Index-tan special, just like the previously Index-tan series, was deliciously hilarious. However, while the specials for the TV series were filled with random gags and fanservice shots, this one did something more...
It is divided in parts, like chapters, that goes through key points of the movie, and what is most impressive, it also recaps the major plot holes, asking for answers while blaming some VIPs of the staff. It's pretty hard to find a series that actually admits its own storyline mistakes and even makes fun of it. Oh, but it didn't stop there, this special gets to a point they even question their own fanservice with, a fanservice shot. -Fanserviception?
Almost the entire main cast of the franchise have a little cameo appearance, so fans can rest easy. With the exception of Accelerator... He's the only one who didn't show up. Sad statement -should have left it for the ending.
Comparing these random 12:01 minutes to the entire movie, they were more enjoyable than half of it. It managed to take a good laugh out of me with the most unexpected and hilarious dialogue and animation. Specially when Arisa is shown with a different stereotype, the one which, honestly, would be the real thing if this wasn't a fantasy anime series.
Try to find this subbed. Watching without understanding the dialogue won't bring the same enjoyment. Yes, I gave an Special a 7. Curse me.
Numeric score: Story 6 - Art 8 - Sound 6 - Char 6 - Enjoyment 10.
