  • This show is life changing
    i am so infatuated with this series. I put off watching it for a long time but watched A certain scientific accelerator, first, then was drawn here & watched every day S1 to S3 & found it to be a world I can deeply connect with. And any confusion only makes it more intereting(omoshiroii) I will always want to see more. I love the character develpoment & the insight they gain. Accelerator's ...

  • Somewhat Lacking Installment
    Honestly I am disappointed with the third installment due to its lackluster fight scenes and disappointing art style (no dragon arm just a blob). The fight scenes in this series look similar to its predecessors which sucks since I was expecting much more dynamic fight scenes between characters. While the art style still remains the same which is quite good, I am disappointed in some of its ...

  • interesting but samey
    It's similar to just as many animes where one group goes to recruit another and they are fighting the system kinda thing. They have lots of gratuituous pedo (lilicon) fanservice like a lolita nun who looks like she's in grade school in panties shoving her crotch on the MC's face, an annoying nun who eats the MC out of house and home with OP powers and of course gets lewded, she acts extremely ...

    If you've watched 1 arc, you've watched the show
    If you've watched 1 arc you've watched every one of them, and an arc lasts anywhere from 3-5 episodes.

    The entire show is based off of several formulaic events, degrading animation quality, two dimensional characters (unless they're borrowed from A Certain Scientific Railgun), and explanations that are about as sophisticated as 'because God, and stuff'.

    If you'd like to make yourself very, ...

    Frustratingly bad action, nonsensical setting, fun characters, great redemptive arcs
    Let me start out with the world building in the show is complete nonsense, the more you know about Christianity and science (and how they are absolutely not mutually exclusive) the harder this show is going to be to watch. This show is to Christendom what Star Trek is to science. Also this show is to science what Star Trek is to science. It uses concepts, imagery, names and events completely ...

    A Disapointing Excuse for a Third Season
    The third season was underdeveloped trash that didn't bother developing characters or events before moving on to the next arc. Each arc of the story (except the last one) was crammed into 3 episodes preventing the writers from having the time to develop events in this adaptation and they didn't even manage to reach the end of the story which is what it seemed they were aiming for.

    This show's ...

    So glad they've picked this up again
    After having watched the first 2 seasons, and the A Certain Scientific Railgun seasons, as well as the movie, I was sad they hadn't released a third season. So many unanswered questions and the like. This is by far my favorite season of all of the series combined. I saw a lot of flack on My Anime List and bad ratings citing the Manga and other such things, but I honestly feel this is a ...

    Index and Railgun. A downward spiral.
    The first season of A Certain Magical Index introduces us to a fascinating world of science, magic and esper powers. It's loaded with humor, action, fun characters dark themes and cool ideas! The second season continues this trend and, while suffering from some over-used jokes, further develops the world and characters in very interesting ways.

    The sister show, A Certain Scientific Railgun ...

    Season 3: A Confusing Mess
    I really enjoyed S1 and S2 of this series as well as the Railgun side series. However, Season 3 is a mess of confusion. From beginning to end it was hard to grasp what was going on in the plot. The main characters of the show were turned into side characters a lot. Especially Index. New characters just show up with no real intro and are treated like they were there the whole time. So many times I ...
