A Certain Magical Index

AT-X 2008

Set in Academy City, a city of scientifically advanced superhuman students, located to the west of Tokyo, in a world where magic is also real. Kamijou Touma's right hand, the Imagine Breaker, can negate all magic, psychic, or divine powers, but not his own bad luck. One day he finds a young girl, Index, hanging on his balcony railing. She turns out to be a nun from the Church of England, and her mind has been implanted with the Index Librorum Prohibitorum — all the magical texts the Church has removed from circulation. His encounter leads him to meet others from the secret world of science and magic and right into an adventure where science and magic collide.

A rather slow passed anime with very little plot drive. Sometimes seems like a predictable anime since the main character usually saves the girl (in every arc) and one shots the main villain with a punch until something completely random happens and random things seem to happen a lot in season 2. The dialog is complicated in it self, while the subtitles make things worse, especially when the main character trys to over dramatically lecture the enemy in one of the most cliche ways possible. But i liked the story's concept of the 2 sides (magical and science) and some of the arcs are pretty good especially the Academy City Invasion Arc. In short i prefer Accelerators way of handling things over Toumas. 7/10

About Me

I am Sophie and this is my website.

A little about me 👋 I am a marketing student in Paris. I love spending afternoons with friends in a cafe or a park.

But more than anything else, I love watching (.. binging…) series on my computer on rainy Sundays or any sunny day for that matter 🙈

I must have watched hundreds of shows by now, from romance to science-fiction series. Often I like to go back to a show I enjoyed. But I don’t feel like watching it all over again…

I created this website so myself and others could find the best episodes of our favourite shows. As of today, I have about 1,000 shows on the website with votes and rating coming from fans.

Hopefully, you can join me from your sofa and enjoy some nice TV!
