The espers of Academy City are classified into six levels, where "Level 0" lacks power while "Level 5" possesses an overwhelming amount. Of the several million espers residing in Academy City, only seven of them have attained Level 5, and ranked highest among them is the one known as Accelerator.

Toaru Kagaku no Accelerator focuses on the strongest Level 5 after he protects the cheerful Last Order at the price of much of his power. Recovering at the hospital, Accelerator has led a relatively quiet life until he ends up saving the life of Esther Rosenthal, a mysterious girl carrying a photo of Last Order. Unfortunately, Accelerator now finds himself dragged into a new conflict in the form of a sinister organization called Disciplinary Action which plots to use Last Order for a dangerous mission. Now that they have set their plan into motion and are in pursuit of the young girl, it's up to the world's most powerful esper and his newfound companion to protect Last Order and defend Academy City in the process.

I don't know if it’s just me but this feels so much more watchable then Toaru Majutsu no Index III so good job getting your stuff together J.C staff and A.C.G.T who by the way both don't have great track records.
Story: 8 Its taken straight from source material and so far has been adapted faithfully with J.C staff not pushing any filler content into the show, Accelerator still is the fantastic edge lord that he is (now with loli) and is just a joy to watch as he gets pushed into the random situations that occur in Academy City. Also for those who have never read more

Let's be real, not a lot of people have a lot of expectation going into this anime. We were just done with the massive trainwreck that is Index 3 (and this is after 8 years, people. 8 years for this to come out); the manga is not well-like among the community (despite that 7.8 score on MAL), and, you know, it is J.C.

Remember OPM2? Remember (again) Index 3?
So, how did they do with this?

You know, I never really understood Index as a franchise. The side stories are done much more spectacularly than the main story; crisper animation, clearer story-telling (though that may just be because read more

Toaru Kagaku no Accelerator is an anime that flew under the radar from most "to-watch" anime lists which initially scared me away from watching this. In a sense; I was afraid it was going to be as bad as 'Toaru Majutsu No Index' was. However, after you start watching this anime, you'll be strangely attached to it.

Note: Toaru Majutsu no Index henceforth referred to as 'Index Series'

The story is built on the foundation of the Index Series which means that stuff such as abilities, levels of those abilities and characters are already well established. Same goes for the main character 'Accelerator'. He is one read more

Story: What story? I mean I wish I had time to get to know the story. Sadly, more than half the episodes run time is the main character ignoring dialogue and fighting. Character development should honestly be thrown out the window; Since they change like two parts into it. I would throw some points if it was shonen, but it is not.
Also, they pulled a fairy tail, where the fight scenes are the characters standing still while things move around them for the most part. No intelligence to it, just "whose dick is bigger contest." Lots of "hahaha no im actually even stronger" read more
