While the show had a lot of bad sides, it managed to become one of my favourite shows with its colorful cast of characters, setting and potential. 9/10 from me.
Judging by the novel summaries and spoilers, 2nd season is where things start to get interesting (can't wait for the war arcs)
Looking forward to To Aru Kagaku no Railgun anime as well. The manga was great and I have great expectations for this one. Hopefuly the author of Index and Railgun will cooporate with J.C. Staff so the anime will go beyond its manga counterpart. Just three arcs ceartanly won't satisfy me.

I started watching this show with some expectations and got my hopes high...
Turned out to be absolutely unsatisfying and fulfilled none of my expectations. As said somewhere above, the show is very inconsistant and barely decent and Im getting this feeling, that the makers stuffed way too much of the novels progress into the first season, thus ending up having an overload of content which resulted in showing said content in a rather poor manner.
A weak 6/10 for the sake of Misaka.

This show really could've been better in many ways. It started on a decent track with some straight objectives and we understood what was going on. Then, Index became a comic relief character and the entire show went on a mumbo jumbo rollercoaster of confusion and unnecessary plot fillers. Here they have a cast of some good characters like Misaka and a few more I can't remember the names of, but none were used at their full potentials. When there was a chance, it was wasted and then came along new characters to fill in some more strange occurrences to throw us off and then cliche monologues and information we probably don't even have to care about. So, in the end, the show didn't know what to do and how to go about solving all the cans it opened. Either we get season 2 or this is it. And, by the end of the show, I totally forgot that Kanzaki was a part of the same series. I still hand it a 7 for the animation, fights, Misaka and for the first half of the show.

Why does everyone like Misaka? What did she do that was so out of the norm for tsunderes? I don't get it.

The series was okay. I stopped trying to take this anime seriously like five episodes in. Sometimes it got really corny when they tried to make things serious, especially at the parts where they keep talking for an hour straight or try to be bad ass. Also I kept saying to myself while watching, wow that was dumb, who the hell cares, so predictable, calm the hell down you crazy hoe, couldn't you have done that stuff earlier, it would have saved a lot of blood, energy, and time, that was easy, wtf?, man my wang ain't hard at all from the action. A lot of things seemed forgotten all together or at least not played out well. It has some awesome potential and is great aside from the action bits. Really hope the next seasons or spin offs will be better than this as I LOVE all the characters. 7/10, Glad I finally got through this.

Yeh it feels incomplete, but that just means that we'll get a seconds season sooner or later. Or maybe it'll somehow continue in Rail Gun.
Anyway, really enjoyed the series. Great animation, funny episodes and awesome music. Also kinda got a Shana vibe from every episode. Biribiri. 9/10

I dislike the fact that Touma seems to be able to run at incredible speed some times, yet, sometimes looks like his body is in slowmotion... Specially when he is giving a speech while rushing towards the enemy.
On a side note, that blond bitch plot was hell too stupid.
Like, producers only picked up randomical and overused plot devices, and mixed up with even more over used stuff.
Its already the 10th time i saw a character like Hyouka on a series.
And its always like that.
She is a monster, but she doesn't know, the antagonist throws some brainwash bullshit at her, she goes emo, and tries to sacrifice her self for the ones who become her friends.
then the main character suddenly manages to run his way out of the underground, and miracously arrives at the fight scene to kick the bad guy's ass.
Damn it. Its so overused even power rangers have that.

"To Aru Kagaku no Railgun" will air in Fall 2009. That means that second season of Index will appear in either Summer or Fall 2010.
Bad things about that: long wait for Index, season 2 (of course, Railgun will greately easen the wait for that)
Good things: more novels will be released till the 3rd season ends (there are enough novels to guarantee a 3rd season and enough popularity in Japan to make it worth animating it) so the chances for the 4th season increases, as well as the chances of it being true to the novels.

The action scenes were a little bit weak too.
The only thing that keeps me from watching this is the characters. Without them, I would have dropped it.
Im not complaining, I liked the series minus the magician/angel mini-arc or whatever that was, but I was wondering, why exactly havent I got bored of Touma with his almighty hand. Its kinda unfair how he owns everyone with a little punch....whatver, hopefully railgun will be better with less fill in characters

Weakest finale boss ever. Almost no character development. We got no answers and it's very open ended. Index had essentially no point and the vampire girl too did nothing. They did nothing with this interesting premise and later fights just feel lackluster. Extremely disappointed with this series. 7/10
There was no final boss and there is no open end. This is just a season end. Nothing more, nothing less.
In fact, the season ending was great if you look at the fact that anime followed novels faihfully. There was no chance for it to get a normal season ending.
