Index 1.11:You are really screwed!
Welcome back readers for more teens with superpowers! After last week’s massive push in storyline and great action, things are finally getting fun again. A lot of Accelerator and Touma this episode, which got me really excited to see what will become of this series as we get closer and closer to the end with each passing episode. Well, on to the review!
Plot follows mostly Touma and Accelerator on their own separate missions, while Alester activates the FUSE Kazakiri to target magicians in the city. Touma bumps into Mikoto and Index together and they begin to work together to save Hyoka.
-Soldier-“Yes, please put all the pizza on Amata’s tab….”
Touma-“…I WANT TO BE THE HERO!” Accelerator-“You don’t have to scream…damn!”
Touma calls Accelerator and updates him about Last Order’s current problem. Accelerator also gets a call from Amata just to inform him he has his little friend. Finally some motivation to kick Amata’s ass! Accelerator gets so angry he throws a building! YES, A BUILDING! You really don’t want to piss him off.
Bowling with buildings, soon to be an Olympic sport in Academy City!
Seriously, dude, you need a pop up blocker…
Touma chases after Vent; before he can punch her face in Aleister activates the Fuse Kazakiri, which is code named angel! It looks more like another second impact from Evangelion. Vent ditches Touma to find some bigger fish to play with, while Touma then runs off toward the massive angel bumping into Mikoto and Index on the way. Index tells him that the strange angel is actually Hyoka and she doesn’t want him to kill her with his Imagine Breaker.
Oh FFFFUUUU!! Where is Shinji when we need him!?
Blaw blaw blaw… friendship is powerful, cry more Index please
YES, FINALLY! Oh, how I have missed that sound and visual of Mikoto’s Railgun firing!
Quite possibly the most badass Mikoto screenshot ever!
Accelerator = Jason Bourne?!
Great wide shot! Looks like fun, huh, Touma??
Touma will let his fists do the talking. Vent will just laugh at you!
Accelerator plays hero and pulls off the best action stunt ever, crashing through a window and owns about five guards in a matter of seconds. This is the Accelerator we all love to see, full on rage; yes please! The episode ends with Touma facing off against Vent, more like defending his glowing friend from the psycho girl in yellow!
Somewhere Kuroko is going crazy over this.
Tsuchimikado-“Man, I don’t get paid enough for this…”
-Accelerator- “What’s this folder… Amata watches Onii-koto??”
Sorry guys, no fan service shot for us, access denied…
What a fast paced episode! Pretty much running around looking for people and it was funny seeing Accelerator talking to Touma over the phone. I wanted him to figure it out, but I guess that makes things even more fun if they ever do meet. However, the way things are going I don’t think such things will happen; though I did like how over the top Accelerator was! I mean he practically threw that building! It has to be one of the best displays of power, right next to Mikoto’s Railgun.
The more running around and talking to various people continued with Aleister activating his final attack on the city. It does scream Evangelion angel attack easily! Maybe more magic related events will go down. I know Tsuchmikado is up to something important too, can’t wait to see what happens with that strange glowing ghost.
Can’t leave out Mikoto! She was extra special this episode, for me anyway! I was missing that oh so familiar laser sound effect. Then again the opening reveals her fighting; however she whips that power out at a great moment. Also, the Misaka sisters are preparing to lend a hand too, so lots of things going down all at once, which I always find fun.
Index is going to spank all the bad boys…
Next week more action and plot progression? I sure hope so! I do need more Mikoto battles or Misaka sisters crashing the party. I am sure Kuroko is sneaking around somewhere in the shadows and we can expect the usual speech from Touma followed by his fist in Vent’s face.
