The fun isn’t quite over yet!
Welcome back to more magical index! This has an interesting turn of events and here I thought things were over! But it looks like things are going to progress into more plot and story. However, I am really excited to see the final episode! Not much going on this week, a few OVAs came out with Tailenders and Air Gear 2! Anyway, time to review episode twenty-three.
Plot this week brings Hyoka back to normal and Accelerator making friends with a special team called Group after being captured by them. While Touma gets some much needed rest from all the battles, so this time mostly Accelerator having his own side story.
Touma- “Guess I can’t let you in my harem Hyoka.” Hyoka-“That’s okay, I like girls anyway.”
Just throw some food and she will leave you alone, Accelerator.
Oh, you shall be missed, Mikoto; who knows maybe we will see another Railgun series?!
After Hyoka wakes up—thanks to Index and her magical singing–she runs off and Accelerator gets captured by Academy city special forces. They want to make use of him for a special team called GROUP, this sounds so much like an RPG thing to me, hahah. Anyway, Accelerator does join the team! He gets to meet up with a special magician who disguises himself and chooses to be Mitsuki Unabara for the time being. Tsuchimikado is also part of this team, however most of us know thanks to the opening.
Accelerator- “Do I get to kill people if I join? Then, HELLS YES!”
While Accelerator gets on with his new team, Touma has issues of his own to deal with. And the big issue?! Deciding where the students should eat dinner… Yes, lame very lame but we do get to see more of Fukiyose and Himegami hanging around him providing us a few laughs. While at dinner, Touma gets to have a chat with Tsuchimokado about a possible war breaking out soon. This really hints for the main theme for another season: WAR!
Touma- “Hey, do you want to hook up later?!” Touma got his answer! NO.
Fukiyose getting close to Touma here, sorry you can’t win against Mikoto.
Every time I see Fukiyose, I can’t help but think of Misaki from Mai- sama! They share seiyuu.
This looks so damn good right now! Pro tip, don’t blog when you are hungry.
Index- “OH MY GOD I AM SO HIGH RIGHT NOW, TOUMA! WOOOOOO!!”
Touma- “We are so watching that chick change…” Tsuchikikado-“Dude, that’s my sister…”
Tsuchimikado-“Are you thinking what I am thinking?!”
Touma- “That we should cross dress and run down the street?”
Tsuchimikado-“Who the hell are you and what you did to Touma?!”
While Tsuchmikado thinks about making new friends, Accelerator is on his first assignment. GROUP is so nice that they even gave his limiter extra time on his powers; surely that will be the best idea just in case he turns on you. First job is to “deal” with a new threat from Skill-Outs led by Ritoku Komaba, who is a huge dude! He’s so damn tall, like a giant! Thanks to the recent events in Academy City, it was easy for him to take over this area.
Accelerator meets this creepy mage! Not a bad suit though.
Magician-“You shall be agent speed-sama”
Accelerator-“DO YOU WANT TO DIE?!” Magician-“…..No…..”
Accelerator is ready to kill some people!
Before any real fighting can go down we get another special guest! Awaki arrives on the scene, you remember her right? She is going to freak when she sees Accelerator. Hopefully, she keeps her mouth shut around him or she’l sure hurt later! The episode wraps up with Awaki finding Ritoku and you can judge how big this guy is.
Awaki makes her dramatic entrance and kicks some major ass! I think she threw a fridge at someone too!
Ritoku- “HAHA, LITTLE GIRL, I SHALL BREAK YOU!”
Touma-“Why yes, I want to go out to dinner with you, boobs er… Fujimura.”
This is Komoe’s OMG WTH BBQ face.
I swear she grew a few cup sizes since we saw her last…
Yes, shovel that food down in there, you won’t get to eat till next season.
A sleeping Last Order is very cuteooooooooo!
Not a bad episode, seems like they are going for another last minute arc? Not sure why, maybe they are pushing to end it with a shocking ending with something epic. Well, I wouldn’t hold my breath too much with anything amazing. As for an ending, my choice would be Mikoto confessing and Touma going, WHAT? I HAD NO IDEA YOU LIKED ME! Just kidding, I would rather have the war’s sudden onslaught. Acqua did manage to talk to the other major guy from the Catholic Church, which should be fun; I remember reading about him in the novel. Insider news, he likes to really get drunk, hahah.
Accelerator’s new team… he joined some lame GROUP? Really couldn’t think of a better name than that? Anyway, I don’t think he will be part of them for much longer. You can already tell he does not like that shape-shifting mage. He probably is not a good guy either, I know Tsuchimikado did warn him about trusting them. I liked that they brought back Awika! Even though she has similar powers to Kuroko, I find her to be fun; maybe it’s the hair or how awesome that move-point ability is. She can throw anything at you! Guess it reminded me a bit of Shizuo from Durarara!!
Hopefully, we get some action between Accelerator, Awika and Ritoku! I am interested to see that massive dude’s powers. I have not read about him yet, but I assume he is some weak filler boss for characters to kick around for a while. Well, that’s about all I can say on this episode. I liked them bring a few people back, which is a common theme in Index; bad guys always come back to help sooner or later. Maybe Vent will reappear in season three? We shall see.
Random dude, you must be having perverted thoughts!
Next week the final episode! Also, the meeting we all have been waiting for! Accelerator finally has a chat with Touma; you can bet they will not be giving each other any high-fives or hugs. And we will get to see how J.C. Staff ends this fun and slow ride.
