The show is going down hill because the characters hold it back WAY to much. If they tried to play it off any other way Touma would be out of the show in no time do to his extreme weakness to his ability (enemies have to be stupid in order for him to win Ex. if they were smart they would shoot him with a gun). And Index's personality doesn't leave much room for a variety to how things can happen with her unless they randomly throw in more powers for her. The only way this show could be saved is adding in another more interesting character for a lead or at least a main side character.

worst... ending... ever... with closure like that, it's no wonder they need sidearcs. not that it was bad, it had a great cast of very interesting characters, except for hyouka, i blame her for ruining the ending. she almost redeemed herself multiple times by doing something cool, but her scenes were too full of "oh poor me i'm a monster" speeches to even begin to compensate, not to mention whining constantly and generally being the most annoying stereotypical character in the entire series. so watch because it's a great series, ignore that one character they brought in for more fanservice and forgot to put a personality in.

Just finished this series. I enjoyed some bits, others I didn't
I like the parts with Misaka and Accelerator, I thought those two characters were like the only redeeming quality of the show.
Touma is just a generic "I'm going to save everyone" MC while Index is flat out annoying(I don't know how people can enjoy characters like her).
The show had several retarded parts
(for example, how in a society as advanced as Academy City are there still magicians retarded enough to not know how a brain works?)
and I didn't really like the whole "churches using magic" stuff
Overall, this show gets a 4 or 5 out of 10 from me
I don't know if I should continue onto Index II because I don't want to watch another series of this crap. I have, however, watched Railgun and I thought that was rather enjoyable.

Indeed this was quite cheesy. The second half and especially the last few episodes were pretty weak, but the first half was so damn enjoyable. Great cast of characters and interesting plot premise. I thought Touma was a pretty damn good MC, dont get why he gets so much hate, but Misaka is superior, I'll admit that.

S-ER said:It's still very fast paced.
My problem with this show is that it felt like too many things happening at the same time and it was just too rushed and messy.Like I felt a lot of arcs would have been a lot better if they weren't so fast-paced.
Also too much fan-service for my taste.
the ending was alright,but not great.I didn't really like the last arc,it was decent at best.And of course in the end Index is hungry but instead of reaching for the food,she bits Touma's head and the food falls to the ground,seems like a smart thing to do..or not.
Best things for me were Misaka and Touma.hope the 2nd season is better.
As for the events being messy:They all connect later.

This anime started out well enough, but it kind of tapered off. The introduction of tons of other female characters vying for the MC was tedious at best.
And the stupid mechanic of him losing his memory to further these events was very annoying. If it fit into the story some other way it would have been fine, but it was simply to justify this unnecessary part of the anime.
However there are elements of the show that I find very enjoyable. Gonna marathon season 2 and see how it turns out.
Also, as has been mentioned his power his stupid at best, it's so forced how he uses it at some times. He should have been able to extend it or something as time went on. but no just punch! pow! zap! slam! gg. at least he doesn't yell "Imagine Breaker!" with each attack. I can take solace in that.
Even if he had his memories the plot would be the same.He only needs to learn again about those that he forgot.Something that stopped ever since the Sisters arc.
Why should he have been able to extend it when he doesnt even know what it is or where it came from?

Actually liked the first season quite a bit even though Touma is really overpowered. Accelerator was easily my favorite character so far and I can't wait to watch season 2. This gets an 8/10 from.
I beg you to explain why he is overpowered.

Well, I just finished this series. Index has got to be the worst character I've seen in a while. I mean, who the fuck bites someone all over when they get angry over petty little things? - 4 points because of Index.
Time to marathon season 2. Railgun is better imo.
Who the hell electrocutes someone just because they feel like it?

Slightly disappointed with this adaption.It was a good adaption of the novels,yet it seemed lackluster compared to what I envisioned while reading the novels.7/10.

Didn't like this arc too much, because for some reason I didn't like Hyouka. Also, a question: if science is so advanced, then why do they still only have machine guns and not something more powerful, e.g. railguns?
Why would the police use railguns?Especially when they exist to control the students, not to fill them with holes?.
And they(Academy City,not Anti-Skill) have them.They just dont use them on students for no reason.As for the magician, Academy City itself didnt care about what she did.

They are not just controlling them but protecting them, and since those students are not "normal" they should have something Anti-espers/Anti-magicians otherwise they are completely useless.
By control I meant maintain peace.Anyway..
Magic isnt supposed to exist.
Considering that the only have problems against magicians because thy have no info about them and the powerful espers(level 5s), there is no reason to use something like that. You dont see policemen using rocket launchers if the robbers have armored vehicles(with or without guns). And dont forget that Anti-Skill is basically teachers and other adults protecting the students for free, because they want to.
And there is always Judgement that even has Level 4s, that can help them.
If the job that they must handle is too much, they arent even informed and the task goes straight to [spoiler]organizations like Group(which Accelerator,Unabara and Motoharu are part of),Item(from Railgun S) and other underground factions.
