Toaru Majutsu no Index II – 13

Let the end of Oriana come already!

This week has been different, finding out which new winter anime to actually enjoy versus so many fail shows! This seems to happen with any new season anyway; they can’t all be winners. Before I get to the review I want to give a few shout outs! A huge thank you for all the birthday wishes! And a big thanks to everyone here at Metanorn for making it a wonderful day. We may not meet in real life, but you make me feel very happy to be a part of an awesome team!  THANKS!

This week Index II returns where we left off with Touma and Stiyl battling the annoying Oriana and her magical keychain of spells. After a failed combo punch from Touma and Stiyl’s lack of aim hitting Oriana in the chest, yes he actually punches her boobs. She pulls out all the stops and uses all her spells at once in a last ditch effort to finish off Touma but of course fails. Touma almost passes out after a large DBZ type attack until he remembers being the main hero and knocks Oriana out.

Stiyl missed on purpose! He wanted to touch da melons.

Look at those sexy arms! They use the bow-flex.

Oriana Summons Golem! Touma uses Right arm, it’s super effective!

Touma aims for the chest! That’s her main power source!

With this punch you shall join the Touma Harem….

After defeating Oriana, Touma and Stiyl hear the voice of Lidvia for some last minute boss gloating. She informs them that the St. Peter’s Cross was not even in Academy city, rather outside of the city. Unknown to her, the city is about to start the night parade, filling the sky with fireworks and lights defeating her chance to use the cross. Seems strange, Touma was in freak out mode; guess he read the script!? Sneaky…

Join me, Touma! The dark green side compels you to!

“Victory is mine! Muhahah, OH WHAT THE HELL, FIREWORKS?!”

Not going to lie around here. These smiles are kind of creepy…hopefully they don’t hug later.

The next day, Touma wakes up at the hospital magically arriving there somehow and is greeted by an aggressive Index.  After hearing his story she bites him as usual. Why the biting! She’s got a hair fetish or something?! Kuroko and Mikoto arrive to inform him he lost the bet between them and has to pay up eventually! Are we going to see a Mikoto and Touma date?! One can only hope.


Lidvia manages to escape on a private jet thinking she’s safe, laughing away her defeat, until she hears the voice of Laura and has a bit of a forced ejection from the jet. Laura’s just mad Lidivia didn’t invite her on an awesome beach trip. During the skydive Laura offers to save her if she joins her cool church club, but she refuses and takes the St. Peter’s Cross catching it and falling to her death protecting it. Back at the hospital, Index visits Himegami who learns Touma protected her along with Academy city once again, and smiles knowing he cares.

This is going to be the best trip ever! Wait, where’s that draft coming from?! /falls down to her death


Watch out! Index will feast on your brains next, Himegami…

Extra Screens

Oriana can’t resist the desire to join Touma’s harem…

Evil Mikoto has many plans for Touma

Damn Index quit biting everything…you are worse than a dog!

End thoughts

The beginning half was the typical Touma rant about the need to protect his friends and how Oriana is evil and needs to meet his friend, Mr. Right-fist. I was happy to see Stiyl not completely give up, after being kicked around. Glad to see Oriana finally defeated after what seemed to be six episodes or more! She was an all right mini-boss character but I found her very annoying near the end.

I liked the second half more as I enjoy Index the comedy; of course it all happens at the usual spot: the hospital. I have no idea how Touma gets there every time, guess whoever is with him, transports him? Was great to see Misaka arrive and show off her evil grin. Just wonder what she has in mind for Touma’s punishment for losing his bet; guess we will wait and see!

I forgot to mention Alistar grinning and talking about Touma’s Imagine Breaker growing. I guess that tells everyone that Academy city knows how overpowering he is. Or they want to use his power for something darker, which might actually be very cool turn of events! Things are getting great plot-wise anyway.


Next week Touma and Index go on a small vacation to Italy! They meet up with Orsola while looking around. Looks like it will be a comedy filled episode or one full of chatter moments.

Thanks for reading!


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

    I heard that touma and mikoto had a date because he lost the bet but from the looks of the preview…. damn…

    • Foshizzel says:

      Well something similar happened in the manga and season one of Index, but that wasn’t a real date type thing just more like hiding out.

      Well saw the update on episode title but we get to see what happens in three episodes.

      • amado says:

        well I sort of heard that it was after this because touma lost the bet and mikoto decided that they will date for punishment…
        well I heard it was included in the festival or something maybe im wrong

        • Foshizzel says:

          True that! well the episode guide shows at least three or two episodes with Touma and Index in Italy so I think they want to put them alone.

          But Index really is never about who hooks up with whom, but things always look that way I still never saw much with Index and Touma being more that friends anyway.

  2. Junko says:

    Index still greatly bugs me that at the end of each preview we get ‘the story begins when magic and science cross over’ (or however it’s worded) but they havn’t really done that yet. Sure, they’ve cooexisted but with very little actual interation. Like water and oil man, you can put them together but they ain’t gonna mix.



    • Foshizzel says:

      Well that is more like Touma being the “science” and the bad guys being the “magic” side of things, I really want to see Mikoto or someone else with physic powers fight some magicians! Sadly it doesn’t look like that will happen.

      But yeah so far its only Touma fighting the mages which sucks I agree, but we have seen Stiyl try to pull his weight and fight too.

  3. Kabitzin says:

    So sad that Orsola still insists on wearing that headpiece. Years later we will find that Index was actually addicted to some chemical in Touma’s shampoo.

    Show ▼

    Regarding Mikoto: DAT GRIN.

  5. Alynn says:

    Ohgoddd Lidvia is so creepy. D;
    Then again, all the other nuns from the other arc were creepy too. :I

  6. Dan-go says:

    ehh, it seems like the show is slowing down a bit for me, i need moar misaki,more index and more kuroookkooo

    • Foshizzel says:

      Yeah sadly you are right it’s not really going anywhere, but looks to be filler coming up in the next two episodes then Mikoto and Touma episodes soon! you can bet Kuroko will be around in the shadows watching…

  7. Jubbz says:

    This episode made me say FINALLY.

    Because i felt this arc dragged out too long. I was liking the arc until it began being so dragged out and his speeches just made me go WAT.

    Like, she doesn’t give two shits about that festival, so why tell her about it? Just stick to the topic of using the damn cross to take over Academy City! >_>

    Yeah, arc fell flat.

    • Foshizzel says:

      YES! agreed why did they let Oriana drag that out soooo long, yeah the speeches were like yeah we get it not fight already!

      Right she doesn’t really care about that, she just wants to use the cross and move on lol.

      Yep I would rather watch another Kuroko arc, well maybe lol..
