Accelerator’s best fight ever?
After all that light and fluffy fun in episode eighteen, it’s time for some serious stuff to go down; we can only hope so! Of course any episode with Accelerator and Last Order running around always opens up quite a fun ride.
Plot this week has Accelerator running into Amata Kihara, leader of a special unit called Hound Dogs, who also was Accelerator’s mentor. Last Order gets kidnapped; but gets away and she finds Touma and requests his help to save him.
All the nuns in Index are a bit perverted, huh?
Want to be a magical girl? Lol wut, Sasha?
Guess Kyubey has more success making magical girls…
After the bit of fun in Russia with Sasha and a random nun, we join Last Order and Accelerator walking home in the rain. Last Order falls and hurts her knees and this forces Accelerator to go and buy some band aids for her. Ye Gods, he does have a heart! Really shows he somehow cares for his little friend. Before he can rejoin Last Order though, he gets attacked by the Hound Dogs with a hardcore job of trying to run him over. He then runs into Amata Kihara who kicks his ass up and down the street.
Those cheeks, I must touch…
Grrrr face gets all the girls.
-Soldier-“SIR, I THINK WE FOUND HIM! OH GOD, WHY?!”
I knew it! Accelerator is a pyromaniac
Ouch! right in the face! Amata does have some epic laughs.
Being a former teacher to Accelerator, he knows all his tricks and how to work around his vector abilities and makes quick work of him. Well, at least Accelerator is not all powerful; still sad to see him get beaten up so fast! The Hound Dogs grab Last Order but Accelerator uses his ability to knock her into the sky; I guess he calculated where she would land safely. A few minutes later, Index arrives to return something to Accelerator.
Have to say this part of the fight was amazing! Animation was top quality here.
Not sure why, but this reminded me of something from Metal Gear Solid…
“I Believe I can fly!”
Quick, Accelerator, send Index flying!
Meanwhile, Touma runs off to find Index and notices lots of anti-skill outside standing around; until they begin to randomly pass out in front of him. Maybe they saw Touma and were like, dude, let’s leave the city to that boy! Last Order runs and clings to Touma, crying her eyes out for him to save Accelerator and we get to see Vento walking around talking to Aleister on a radio. Seems like she already knows quite a bit about Judgment, Anti-skill, Misaka system and the Imagine Breaker or she might have been watching Index. The episode ends with Aleister giving commands to Amata to eliminate Vento and capture Index.
I love Last Order and all but that is some crazy detail on her face…
Vento! Can’t wait to see you fight Touma!
When will this dude get out of his fish tank!?
Last Order wants to be like Touma! Spiky hair, look!
-Touma-“DUDE! Are you dead?!” –Soldier-“……..go………..away………sleeping”
Accelerator -“Yea….those are some nice shoes…bro”
Touma- “DAMN IT! I HAVE TO SAVE THE WORLD…….AGAIN”
Whoa! What a great episode this week! Lots of action with some story progression going on this time around. Seeing Accelerator go to the store to buy some bandages for Last Order was kind of cute, just to see that he generally cares for her even though she would drive most people nuts. So, we get to see some progress between the two of them. Seeing Amata arrive and beat the snot out of Accelerator was shocking, then again Amata knows the ins and outs of his power so in a way he has an edge.
Seeing Vento arrive and start chatting with Aleister was also nice, finally seeing that dude make his move! Can’t wait to see what FUSE=Kazakiri does and how Index plays into all this. I can only guess she is like the power for it or something cheesy; probably its magic powered! It was interesting to hear Vento knowing everything about Academy City even down to Touma’s power. Then again, he has been kicking the church’s ass this whole season.
I am curious to learn what Index will do to actually help Accelerator, that and if Mikoto is aware of the current events with Touma, Last Order and Accelerator? Hopefully she gets to finally learn all that Touma has been keeping hidden from her. But judging from the opening video, she gets stuck fighting Anti-skill people.
Kuroko! Oh, how I miss you and your crazy faces.
Next week! Action and some story progression?! Let’s hope so! I think we finally get Mikoto and Kuroko in on the events happening in Academy City and more Index teaming up with Accelerator.
