Boring episode. Had a couple of good parts, but that was about it. At least next week's looks interesting, what with Touma covered in blood.

Noto Mamiko <3333

anyways, great episode, i liked the fast pace this episode.
so, i like how he is putting the innerside of the coin thing. sometimes it makes me feel like it has a relation to shana, but not really.
lol, he called index in middle of a battlefield.
gregorious choir seemed weird...... little light balls.
"Bad Luck, Scarecrow" had me laughing for awhile."
Izzard looks.... like a bad guy, no shit xD
Miko time was awesome. she is awesome. noto mamiko is awesome.
lol @ Aisa's magic wand.... xD
alchemy is fearful magic....
lol, a touch in the head, and memories return xD
haha, charms xD
knights of round.... i chuckled.
next episode seems awesome. kamijou covered in blood looks interesting.
poor index, will she ever get out of trouble?

i want miko to be in kamijou's harem.

"Bad luck, scarecrow." and mamiko's magic wand makes up for irregular pacing. Looking forward to more :P

Great episode as always. I dont see why so many people are confused by the explanations. They all make sense when thinking about them through the perspective of the world in which the anime is set. Although I do think this isn't going to be the kind of anime where its all about action (which is a GOOD thing), whats the point in having heaps and heaps of action in every single episode if there is absolutely no point in it?

This anime manages to build on (what appears to be) an intellectual plot with action thrown in where it can be. Exactly what anime should have. Looking forward to the next episode now...

Huh, yeah, I'm confused by this episode. By this show actually. It feels like there's something to grasp, but all the eps are so messy and slow that I can't seem to understand what's happening on the screen and the logic behind the characters' motivations. It was a decent episode though, with nice action scenes and some kind of development I guess.

....

Very disturbing plot and characters. On top of that, some dialogues are really strange, I wonder if the translation is messed up or if they are like that in Japanese...



Exactly my thoughts after watching this episode!

Yup, it's true. At least it makes his crush on Index less creepy, right? :-P

He definitely seems to be at least 10 years older. There has to be a mistake here... or some very odd character design! ;)

I often wonder, if that so called revelations passage is real.
Given the general demeanor of the book, I wouldn't doubt it.

Laughed so hard when Stiyl said he had an escape plan and then Touma down the stairs and ran off xD

I wish Himegami will have a better role than that. This anime is just like dating sims but all the females become side-characters right after Touya saved them. :(

Fuck, Index is being held captive by that Aurelius Alchemist. Why did she go there in the first place?! Also, that Aurelius guy's power sure was impressive. Heck, he has like the power of the kings, the Geass. :>

Wonder how Touma remembered that their mission was to rescue Deep Blood if the Alchemist brain washed them. Also, what the fuck is a Gregorio Choir? Were those knights trying to destroy Aurelious's building but failed because Aurelious showed his true powers? The heck man.

Also, it seems to be Aurelius knows Index before. They must have met before but Index just forgot since her memories got erased or something. Plus, Index was getting suspicious at Touma because of the Pudding incident. Wonder what's going to happen.

The conversation that Touma and Index were having on the phone was hilarious. Now I want pudding. XD
LMAO @ Aisa and her magic wand.
That was one awesome powerful attack that the Thirteen Knights had.

This was possibly the most interesting episode so far - I kind of like Deep Blood (can't remember her name :/) but her monologue about vampires grated a bit. Touma's monologues in the earlier eps were bad enough, is there really any need for more?

Great episode, though things were happening so fast sometimes it made me dizzy. XD Everything is flowing coherently, it just felt like there was no pause in the action - which I suppose can be a good thing!

Obviously Imagine Breaker is more powerful than whatever skillz the alchemists use... which isn't surprising, since in the last episode, Stiyl was saying that the alchemists can make what they imagine a reality, and Touma's skill is Imagine Breaker... Not that it was named for that reason or anything though.

Aisa amused me... and was cool. :>

Well that was a miserable failure. Not the episode per se, but the campaign to rescue Deep Blood. Not only did they NOT get her, Index gets kidnapped too and they get kicked the hell out of there. Oh well, try, try again if at first you don't succeed. Though it appears the alchemist is going to be one HELL of a problem.

Now another villain who's after Index! This time it's a creepy alchemist who tried to erase even more of Touma's memory. Good thing he failed though. =P

Next episode will be a bloody one it seems! :O

I'm so glad Imagine Breaker worked on his memory. It would be kinda stupid if Touma's memory had be erased yet again.

Anyway, what's with the creepy students? And why were those cuts appearing on that girl? That part better be explained because it was damn wired. The good thing is, I'm liking this series a lot more than I first expected.

Wow. This episode took the series on a bad left turn.
Your mean should be an even bell curve only if you watch every show that comes out. Having a high-slung mean doesn't mean you're rating improperly. It can also mean you're selecting shows well to watch mostly things you enjoy.

Very interesting seeing how this arc compares to the light novel. I wouldn't say that the first arc was without flaw, but it was definitely a much more faithful adaption than this one. But this arc is also a lot more complex in the source, so I guess that's to be expected. Still, it's a lot more enjoyable watching this anime after reading the LN. Having a better understanding of what's going on and seeing it happen in animation really does make everything worthwhile.

Aww man.. why dud she end up in their hands. That is a bit frustrating.
I'm still unsure about his loss of memory which hurts a bit. Anyways I liked the way he dispelled the memory loss with a punch :D.

When you say all over the place, you mean they change villains and arcs every four eps, or earlier, that dont seem to connect?
How is that different from railgun?

Mmm, I didn't really understood what is that Ars Magna. Is he able to control everything that his in the building surrounding? Was Touma, Stiyl and Index victims of hypnosis?

Anyway, eventful but confusing episode. There was so much things happening : an asault, the weird Gregorio chant, the encounter with the target, the encounter with the enemy, the mind eraser, Index capture, mind eraser neutralized... Even some devellopment with Stiyl, it felt like it could have been paced in two episodes.
