Having lasted merely two weeks, World War III has come to an end. Both Accelerator and Hamazura Shiage have returned home to the people they cherish most after overcoming their individual conflicts. The world is at peace and Academy City continues on as normal while the magicians focus their efforts on repairing the damage they took from the war.

Among this tranquility, however, someone is missing. Someone who used his right hand to save a young girl while changing the tides of war along the way: the "Imagine Breaker," Touma Kamijou. However, the disappearance of the self-proclaimed ordinary high school student has not affected the majority of the world as the temporary peace is soon broken when new threats, both espers and magicians, emerge across the globe. Now, the heroes of World War III must step forth into battle once more, facing off against some of the most powerful enemies imaginable in order to protect the people they hold most dear.

A Certain Magical Index isn't a deep work. It's not written to blow your mind, it's not a genre redefining work. It's main purpose is to entertain.

And boy does it entertain well. Just the sole achievement of writing 45 volumes of novel (and that's not counting spin-offs and side volumes) and still being able to draw the readers in alone is outstanding.

Sometimes the peril ...

After 45 volumes, people just keep talking about how great it is, when the like of me has just got tired. Seriously, the series is this long and there is still no trace of the end? The harem has become extremely huge and unbalanced, yet Something Kamijou is still running around with his right hand? The Index has long lost her standing point, yet the series was still named after her? I wonder of some conspiracy theories here...

The biggest disappointment is the magic side, since they have been quite unimpressive and useless, even from the get-go, if the fan service are out of the equation. ...

If you are reading this review, you are likely either 1) interested in the series and want to see whether the series as a whole is worth your time or 2) have read the prequel A Certain Magical Index and are wondering how its sequel Shinyaku Toaru Majutsu no Index (Index New Testament or Index NT for short) stacks up. To answer those questions, 1) yes, the Toaru (series name) World is awesome, and you should get into it, and 2) Index NT is an improvement on Index in most every way with higher stakes, better plots, better character interactions and an expanded scope. ...
