To Aru Majutsu no Index II – First Impressions

If you’ve already seen the first season, you’re likely already watching To Aru Majutsu no Index II. If not, I recommend you go watch both the first season and the To Aru Kagaku no Railgun side story.

I don’t normally do impressions posts for sequels, but the To Aru Majutsu no Index series deserves a mention. The whole concept of Academy City, students with abilities, and science versus magic greatly appeals to me. It takes my two of my favorite subject matters, science and magic, and spins an epic story out of it.

The characters are highly memorable, with episodes devoted to revealing their personalities and past history. I find the character designs to be awesome, as you can easily identify any character because they each have their own unique style and features. They’re also simply fun to watch.

Anyways, the second season continues from where the first left off. Touma and Index get caught up in matters involving conflicts between different churches. Seems like we’ll see lots of nuns who all happen to be highly trained in combat. Judging from the OP/ED, the three main characters this time will be Touma, Index, and Misaka. I’m glad Misaka is hopefully going to get more airtime this season.

    I really want to start watching this soon since I loved Railgun, but I’m still struggling through Index season 1. Good to see that the characters designs are still superb.

    I think I struggled a bit with Index season 1. Railgun was fun and easy to watch though.

    Okay, I have the first season on my to-watch list!
    I haven’t had the time to start it yet, but I will eventually!
    If the second season is initially pretty much enjoyable then I will make sure to watch them at some point. 🙂

    I watched and loved the first season. I never finish the railgun side story. I think I will finish Railgun first.

    That’s a good idea since I think Railgun happens before Index S2.

    Yup, their counter to Index’s chant in the latest episode was pretty extreme. Good stuff.
