Toaru Majutsu no Index II – 10

Oriana Thomson really loves paper! Maybe she has a fetish for it…

Well, this week has been a bit cold but starting to get warmer, for us Floridians it never really stays cold so my fingers have been crossed for some warm weather! Also having a family gathering later today, oh joy there. Also playing a bit of Warcraft on the side and some Christmas themed artwork, guess you can say, I stay busy… which is never a bad thing, right? Anyway onto the episode…

Seiri wakes up in the hospital dazed and confused on why she woke up there, while Touma and the rest continue to play hot pursuit against Oriana. Finally tracing her down, thanks to Stiyl’s magic ring of tracking, I call it found-you circle. After they locate her and attempt to explode the bus, she sneaks away and onto the fight between Touma and Oriana! Oh, and Tsuchimikado catches on fire.

Bus-chan Nooooooooo!!!

Touma has a bit of a hard time fighting against Oriana, mostly due to her not spamming the same move over and over. Sorry Touma this isn’t a fighting game! Maybe you should just block every move. But Touma does what he always does; give a speech about Seiri being hurt and how Oriana must pay for her evil deeds. She does have some interesting magic, she holds a small thing of paper that can be best described as a spell book. This allows her to use any magic she wants; though, Touma breaks through several spells and knocks Oriana to the ground with a hit to the… You guessed it, the face!

At least she’s nice to look at when…knocked out

Like all boss characters, Oriana gets up and makes her escape but leaves her present behind until Touma takes a look at it to find it was an ice cream shop sign all along! Maybe it’s magical ice cream? After finding it fake, Touma, Stiyl and Tsuchimikado regroup to continue the talk about Stab Sword. Learning the truth behind the sword itself! In fact it isn’t a sword at all; more of a cross and the rumors were mostly made up.

Our evil plot to rule the world was EVIL ICE CREAM!! Muhahahah!

Stab Sword is actually a really freaking heavy towel rack! Also good for BBQ’s

I shall order one million Stab Swords/towel racks…

But things seem to revolve around Academy City as the Catholic Church wants to rule over the city, which worries Laura a bit knowing they will have the upper hand soon. We then meet up with Mikoto and her mom as they go off to eat lunch with Touma’s parents.  Index and Touma have a bit of a lover’s spat and soon arrive to have Mikoto and Index get into a war of pointing and name calling. Touma then meets Mikoto’s mom and is shocked to find out she has one! Well, most anime characters don’t have families…or they are away on “business”.

That’s my boy! Two girlfriends…just like his old man…

Extra Screens!

Oriana did this on purpose to throw Touma off…but it failed! For him anyway…

Mini spell book, buy yours today! For 5 easy payments of 29.99$!

-Touma-“DUDE! YOUARE ON FIRE!” Tsuchimikado-“…are…my..glasses…still…on?”

What would Kuroko do if she saw Mikoto’s mom?! I would love to see!

End thoughts

First half was alright for me this time, nice to see Oriana’s magic shown off. I enjoyed her first round of fighting and the various styles of magic she could do. But after seeing her rip the paper with her mouth a dozen times it got old fast, and seeing the thing she carried to be in fact a sign made me laugh. She is an interesting character and her choice in clothing a bit strange; though, it does make her stand out a bit too much. Not that Stiyl and Index blend in either.

Touma winning with his speech and punch to the cheek is starting to get old as well, but guess it really is the only way he can truly make his powers work fully. Was nice to see Touma’s parents interacting with Mikoto’s mom even though they didn’t chat much, somehow I can see them spending more time together later on with some beach themed episodes; oh they are out there, just you wait!

The whole Stab Sword thing was also interesting to see and learn the truth about it being just a cross, kind of saw it coming though and it doesn’t look like any sword I would want. Also, looks like we haven’t seen the last of Oriana, she will return for another round of Punch-the-girl-in-the-face! And more magic spamming versus Touma. Was it me or did the animation take a huge fall this time? Some of the characters looked less detailed than normal but of course this is one of the “boring” episodes.


Next Index II continues with everyone chasing down Oriana and more attempts to stop the trade of the Stab Sword. Also looks like we are in for some Kuroko being crazy as always events; maybe she will meet Mikoto’s mom?! Oh, the world might explode if she does. So prepare for more chatting and punching next week! Laters.


Is huge anime fan from Florida! who loves to watch anime and also enjoys drawing and collecting pictures, my favorite genre of anime has to be Mecha, there is just something awesome about giant robots beating the crap out of each other! Other than that type of show, I love a good comedy or action series :D

    next episode is almost the only episode that himegami actually takes part in the action/story 😛
    not that i care XD
    Thought JC Staff always screw up on action scenes
    and did worse in this episode, although i liked
    the episode of the parents 😛
    JC should just concentrate on romance than action

    • Foshizzel says:

      Lol yeah poor Himegami she hardly gets to do anything! =(

      Aye well this episode made Touma struggle a little bit having to actually work at hitting Oriana, only because she didn’t spam the same repetitive move over and over.

      Ahh yeah maybe…but I don’t really think of IndexII being to much romance based, they do hint at Mikoto and Touma all the time. We shall see! don’t hold your breath 😛

  2. Alynn says:

    Mmm, I’d love it as well to see what would happen if Kuroko saw Misaka’s mom too! I bet it would be funny.

    • Foshizzel says:

      I would imagine it would be like the dorm chick in Railgun xD a quick neck grab,crack and toss out of a window or something like that 😛

  3. BlackLagoon187 says:

    ROFL good point on Kuroko seeing Misaka’s mom, that I would love to see… 3P attempt? xD

    On another note, Touma’s 1-hittothefacemakethisb**hfallformeattack did not work this time?!?!?!?! What is this world coming to 😀

    • Foshizzel says:

      Kuroko probably would have a heart attack lmao…but dunno not sure she would care for the “size” of a girls chest…let alone Mikoto’s mom…who knows 😛 just wait till she sees the last order,Misaka sister and mom together O_O

      Waiting for kicks to face in season 3 when Touma discovers he can move his Imagine breaker…xD

      • BlackLagoon187 says:

        lol he can move his imagine breaker later on? But yeah I do hope there’s season 3 just so I can see Misaka xD

        Oh and the Accelerator and Misaka LoLi christmas banner is a win xD

    • MikADo says:

      ROFL on 3P attempt

      • BlackLagoon187 says:

        now that Last order is brought up what if kuroko saw last order, misaka, misaka’s moms and the rest of the misaka imouto’s? That would be like 1000+P or serial rape by kuroko

        • MikADo says:

          That is just scary 😛
          there is a lot of doujins/parodies based on that idea though
          for example, since the misaka imoutos have a price tag
          we can imagine kuroko working her butt off to buy one XD

      • Foshizzel says:

        Hey there Mikado!

        haha yay for more attempts!

  4. edru says:

    I really like your captions on each pic.

    well the face is more effective in this instance, if he hit her chest it would have been awkward and probably “lessen” the damage.

    • Foshizzel says:

      Thank you edru! I enjoy that part of reviewing the most 😀

      Right plus it doesn’t have the “impact” or shock factor, a hit to the face is more win anyway.

  5. Dan-go says:

    My sub came off as Touma being shocked that such a young looking girl was mikoto’s mother as opposed to sister, not the fact that she actually had one. also epic captioning…NEED MOAR KUROKO

    • BlackLagoon187 says:

      Like I said Touma needs to start investing in Misaka and Accelerator needs to start investing in his Misaka LoLi for the future xD

    • Foshizzel says:

      Ooooh right I see! guess that explains the reaction, like you said not shocked Mikoto has a mom just at her looks.

      Kuroko is fun from a distance for me 😛 she’s great for lulz

  6. Dan-go says:

    nyone else think it’s kinda lame that touma finishes every bad guy/girl/(actually there are more bad girls than guys in this/railgun) with a suckerpunch? i mean it’s lols the first time (like soul eater :D)…but after that….

    • MikADo says:

      get used to it dango, it his fnishing move
      and is the final skill every arc

    • Foshizzel says:

      -raises hand- yes yes I do too…but oh well its like Ichigo from bleach or Luffy from one piece they all have their signature “move” that makes winning easier.

      But it’s all in good fun I still want to see someone else steal the spotlight for once. Stiyl having a epic fight with another magician would rock! or Index.

      • Dan-go says:

        It’s just rather underwhelming as a finisher

  7. MikADo says:

    BTW, oriana cant use the same magic twice 😛
    its because of her style of magic so dont blame her XD

    • Foshizzel says:

      Kind of figured that yeah from watching her fight xD but still interesting to see Touma have a hard time figuring her out, course it takes him a span of five minutes to…

      • MikADo says:

        oh and im quite disapointed at how they cut off so many lines from the book, like the explanation of oriana’s magic “short hand”, and why Steyl is actually fighthing(for index), and also Tsukimikado’s awesomeness

        • Dan-go says:

          do elaborate about the “Short hand”

        • Foshizzel says:

          Oh? I kind of was curious about that short hand stuff, I figured it meant she could cast spells quick with the whole ripping the paper thing.

          • MikADo says:

            basically in the book it says you can use magic in two general ways, use a magic circle-type, and magic book-type
            magic book is a concentration of hundreds of magic circles, so it is more powerful ofcourse, but in the same time more difficult to use/understand (thats why index is awesome,she actually memorize/understand 10,000+ magic books)
            Oriana, is a special case, in which she creates a “short hand” copy of a magic book, very powerful but not permanent and not as powerful as a magic book

            • Dan-go says:

              okay…but index can’t use the 10000+ grimoires anyway though

            • MikADo says:

              she cant use it, but she can always re-create the book anytime and give that book to a another person so they can use it
              the fact that she has them itself makes her get a lot of attention in the magic/science world
              for example she got targeted by that man with the bow gun in episode 1 right? so even though she looks use-less, she is unimaginably important person XP (sad thing is eventhough she is so important, the story really dont have much to do with her….i mean touma can destroy any magic right? wats the point of all that grimores than? lol)

            • Dan-go says:

              Index <3, they need to feature Index and Biribiri chan more

  8. Kabitzin says:

    Bus-chan Nooooooooo!!!

    Bus-chan had it coming. How can you leave behind passengers that you passed by while heading to the bus stop?

    These comments remind me that we need to meet Shirai-okasan.

    • Foshizzel says:

      Lol yep always leaving the stop to early…and smells bad damn you Bus-chan!

      Hahah yes we do 😀

      Thx for the commment Kabitzin!
