yuri yes. hentai no.

And even there the yuri is only a one sided love, there's no yuri relationship in the series.

By looking at the anime poster, i was impressed with the drawing. But when i found out the anime was under JC staff production, i have to think twice becos i don't really watch anime under JC staff production except all those shoujo anime like nodame cantabile, honey and clover and hatsukoi limited. I doubted that the studio can even come out with great action anime becos the movements are quite restricted. But i 've decided to try on in the end.... i was SHOCKED and speechless. Since when ...JC staff had come this far????

I love the animation and everything. Mikoto had a really cool technique, 'railgun' was such a blast. The only part that disturbs me is her boobs being squeezed.

Index is even below mediocre so there is nothing to be happy about. Tell me when JCS produce something worth watching again.

They could have done Shana 3 -.-.

What does animating Railgun have to do with SnS3? J.C. Staff often releases few shows in a season so Railgun won't interfere.

Though I have a stinging sensation that this anime will be more about Index.
don't worry; she hasn't appeared once in the manga chapters that have been scanlated.
Now, THAT is good to hear. I wouldn't want my BiriBiri to be polluted with Index (lol...)

How about Touma? And other guys? I would also love to see Kanzaki in the show.

Biribiri is awesome but her best parts in the show were when she got embarrassed around Touma. Without him its not going to be the same.
as of chapter 13: touma's in it a bit. kinda minor character...mostly there for comic relief and to show what he's doing on the index side of things. basically he does the same things from the anime: fighting with mikoto, talking with her a little, etc. stiyl has a one-panel cameo; he doesn't speak. no kanzaki.
