Yes, Hayabusa has a preference for older teachers but he's being set up with a middle school girl.
This is why we'll get Kawada singing for a Kamachi anime that won't be Raildex!
I'm hoping the hatter returns too, he was kind of a bro actually once you looked past his insanity. Also, I wonder if part of the reason Kyousuke kind of spoils Aika is because
Elvesta Toydream who died stalling for time to get Kyousuke to safety was perhaps her father since Vol 6 reveals Aika's last name to be Toydream according to js06.
Yeah right, all the bitch can do is get mad at her friends and cry when she dun wrong.

Who cares about the flawed prototype. Uiharu v2.0 is perfect.
Considering her hatred for him was both partially caused and kept in check by her desire to be a proper big sister I wonder how Biondetta would react to Kyousuke calling her "Onee-chan".
She constantly talks about her love for hate and revenge due to how twisted she's become. She hates Kyousuke the most and considers him her nemesis. That's pretty much love coming from her.
I don't think that's quite right, maybe. It's kind of hard to tell with her due to how she treats revenge, but does she really hate the other people she gets revenge on? Or perhaps her desire to seek out suffering to exact revenge upon is her seeking her version of love if you're right.
Her sexiness transcends the Kamachiverse.
And Itsuwa's irrelevance.
Seriously though, 0-X Office spinoff when?
>An incarnation of benevolence, a symbol of sanctity, and a personification of radiance
And a busty girl is the only one who will win the bowl.
Reminder that Kamachi keeps revisiting this character because she is actually still "alive".

Probably a good harness or whatever they use to distribute force. Azureyfear was always intending on being in the Object while it's moving in combat, the MIB never intended to have the Son of a Bitch move at combat speeds so they probably didn't invest in any sort of preparation last for it while Azureyfear did.
>Draw a girl
>Call it a boy
The madman can't be stopped
She already said she's retired from the industry; as much as I wish she would, she's never coming back, not even for Index III if it were made.
Honestly I just wished she stayed in the industry for just a few more years. She's still too young to retire and it seemed like her career was picking up again with her AoKana single. Plus, she never even got to go to events around the world except for those two SEA events; she never even went to an American event.
It was entertaining, easily the best one out of all the Kamisato related volumes. Fran ends up being the best girl from his faction and Touma was pretty ruthless this time around. My only gripe is that there should have been some better developments with Mikoto. Now there's a high chance the next volume will take place outside of AC and it feels like the AAA hype was a waste.
I felt that they handle things in a fairly anticlimatic manner
And before anyone jumps at me, I'm not talking about
Touma having to fight off Kamisato's harem but more in how they basically just let Kamisato ride off into the sunset and had Yuuitsu killed offscreen. These two were built up pretty significantly and to have them handled in such a lackluster way just felt stupid to me.
Otherwise a pretty fun read.
Kamisato's harem turned on her though. Do you really think that they'd let her just walk away? Granted she may have still had a good level of fighting power but sheer numbers should've completely overwhelmed her. Though I do kinda hope that she somehow made it out of that alive.
Good. Fran was cute and Touma finally got his shit together.
Minimal Kamisato appearances, but I actually enjoyed seeing him this time.
We actually know Yuuitsu's goal now.
Speaking of Yuuitsu, I feel like the only one who actually likes her around here. She's one of those characters that seems whimsical and crazy, but is actually very sure in her methods and knows exactly what she's doing. It makes a nice change from the other villains who every action is done for the sake of their plan.
I liked her if only for how she was able to take all these other elements that had been in other volumes to get what she wants.
It'd be like if Fiamma had somehow gotten Izzard's Ars Magna and a fragment of Curtana to fight Touma
It's just cool to see someone utilizing all these things that had been more or less cast away at the end of the previous novels
I just want Enshuu back
She's my favorite insane loli in this series
Also, I want to see her emulating Touma again while screaming IDTI on some motherfuckers with Touma looking slightly embarrassed in the background
Kakine will return in the beginning of the third series as he's recovered from the ocean in a giant coffin. He will then become the antagonist of said arc. Prove me wrong.
>he tries to fuck with Accel
>gets turned into a volleyball again while screaming WRRRRY as he gets stuffed back in Poseidon's fridge in the first chapter
Prove me wrong
>Reduced to a blood stain and a few organs by Accel
>Gets his personality hijacked because of Takitsubo
>Utterly humiliated and beaten to a pulp by Rensa 29
Kakine and Beetle are a joke at this point.
It's a little fucked up that he jobs so hard so often when his power lets him do seemingly anything he damn well feels like doing
I feel like if anyone was close to level 6, it'd be him considering he was turning into something of an Eldritch horror last time he was around
If that thought pattern stuff updates, she will go thermonuclear if she emulates Touma.
>Enshuu being able to take out Magic Gods with random household appliances and shit
That sounds fun but I want it to stay at Touma ver 1.5, before he went through all the phases
I want to see what his reaction, as he is now, would be to how he used to be
Even if Yuiitsu manages to survive being jumped by Kamisato's bitches, Aleister has no reason to keep her around. It'll beggar disbelief if she turns out to be anything other than dead or stuffed into a fridge.
Kind of, it always gets hijacked by the Queen at some point though.
I dunno. He could probably throw her a Laura for a bit while he focuses on damage control. Just "accidentally" let slip why Kamisato showed up in AC in the first place and off she goes to England. Then, when they ask how she found out about is in the first place just blame it on Kamisato's bitches letting it slip. Literally free labour.
For Kyousuke yes, due to how the summoning system works non-summoners/vessel can't remember a summoner or vessel while they're not in their vision and Kyousuke's policy is to release the people he saves back into the normal world after he's done (the awards that determine if a human can be remembered is mostly tied to the summoner). The entire plot is about the relationship between Kyousuke and the Queen, the others are there for the theme of the summoning system.
>Due to the summoning theme, I focused this entire novel around (a mistaken usage of) the idea of being reliant on others. The protagonist of Shiroyama Kyousuke is a legendary sort of person, yet he can’t display his true power without a partner, he uses a product of Quad Motors which belonged to the enemy, and his catch phrase was to repeat back what the other person had said earlier.
>I think the key to this novel’s summoning theme was to see how cool I could make it look to be reliant on others.
Volumes 4 and 5 are the biggest parts for character progression, though 3 had a couple good points as well. 1 and 2 were setting up the conflict for the most part.
AAARRRGGGHHH KANZAKI HELP ME GET DUBS FOR S3
Too bad Stiyl, it's the year of the Queen now.
LONG LIVE THE QUEEN, ANIME NOW
L-let go of me you little bitch!
HELP ME KANZAKI HE'S ABOUT TO FINISH M- OOF
Finished volume 3. I liked Biondetta's character mirroring Kyousuke and thought she was a devious cunt, but then ending x-02 happened and the White Queen shat all over them all which was great. Shame that Isabelle won't be recurring, I liked her design.
I was planning on pacing myself with the next two volumes but that ending and curiosity about the siblings project makes me want to get through this quick. Sasuga White Queen, Kamachi did good with this character.
Volumes 4 and 5 are a hell of a ride, so you'll definitely like those.
>clones, thought patterns, agate halation.
She can't do those
Shaggoth can't make more and it can't interact with kakine matter and visa versa. She would need Fremea for the last thing, and Enshuu only gave her the dog's patterns not the ability to copy them.
>Make a /ss/ doujin
>Still fucking use Mikoto instead of any of the great onee-sans that would be perfect for the role
So far, but Blood Sign is rapidly catching up in my opinion.
>She would need Fremea for the last thing
At the end of NT7 Noukan mentioned that there is something hidden about Agitate Halation that Yuiitsu could use. I'd say if she really is alive it'll be tied to that considering her knack for re-using techniques and technology.
He just didn't care for Kyousuke at first, but he liked it a lot more in volume 2. Boo Boo is the same way, he didn't care for volume 1 much but liked volume 2 a lot.
Blood Sign's first volume mainly suffers from the massive info dumping and some harem baiting in the first half until the Queen showed up, she carried the rest of the volume pretty much by herself from then on.
It's a risk she's willing to take, her competition has gotten stiff lately.
Kamachi came to the realization that the best part of Index had 3 protagonists and the best part of HO is the banter and then made a series making full use of the Three Protagonists format he's great at and gave each of them their own partner for extra occasional banter. A truly genius move.
Also unrestrained craziness and always moving plot that didn't drag on forever.
I don't mind series staying around for long though, as long as I like it and it stays creative. Repetition is what kills long series, which is the one thing Kamachi doesn't really suffer from. Random quality drops/increases perhaps, but it's usually something new every time.

Clones aren't really people though so it's okay.
She doesn't have the required bust for that role.
Weak, posting superior onee-san.
>Clones aren't really people
I hate this meme.
Touma: “I have to take two girls to the Dianoid, that fashionable date spot that stands at the top of District 15 which is already Academy City’s #1 shopping district. I could not be dreading this more than I am.”
They just need a flesh and blood soldier to keep them in check, the IA has started to realize this.
>yfw God of Christianity is just a "normal deity you can find anywhere"
They feel the same emotions and thoughts/memories of each other. She can give one present to a single one of them and they will all feel the same emotions as if they got the present themselves. That's assuming the clones are actually individuals though(they aren't).
Did you even read the novels or are you trolling? Anyone can become a summoner. Obviously some people will become much better summoners than others, but there's no special attributes needed to become a summoner.
Conversely, not everyone can become a vessel.
I really like railgun it has a cool world with interesting characters (except touma) but i find index to be boring. and i really hate touma, everything about him pisses me off. his shitty "power", and his shitty self pretentious attitude. should i bother with the light novel? i've watched anime and read manga though i'm not caught up in the manga.
Yes, pretty much anybody can just pick up a stick and start playing, like anybody can go through the Esper program, but literally everybody of actual consequence is some kind of human physics engine.
Oh yeah, Mikoto's filthy rich so she wouldn't have a problem giving them gifts. Also, only a couple of clones are in AC while the rest are spread around the world, so she doesn't have to give to all of them.
Reading the LN would certainly make you hate Touma a lot less. Depending on where you start reading it wouldn't be as big a deal since Accelerator and Hamazura get big roles with volumes 13 and 15 (anime ended on 13).
I don't think so. Being a magician or a summoner is about practice and skill. Obviously there's some aspect of talent, but it's not like espers and vessels where you're completely hopeless without talent.
Sure everyone can enter the Esper program, but actual ability needs talent. Most people are just stuck at level 0 or 1. That's the whole point about the difference between Espers and magicians.
If anything magicians have a bigger difficulty curve because if you aren't born as a saint or someone with absurd skills/powers like Fiamma you have no chance to reach certain levels.
The reason for those is more on the fact that the researchers focus the resources more on certain people as the Parameter list shows.
Level upper itself shows that everyone does have power that can be developed, just that as the list implies, some aren't worth the effort.
It's not about difficulty curves. Anyone who can learn can cast a spell.
Birdway and Aleister are both at that level without any special attributes like sainthood.
Magic was literally developed as a way for the talentless to rise up and beat the talented (gemstones) through hard work and numbers.
No, that's not what level upper shows! Level upper was literally using the brains of other espers of the same type to supplement the processing and increase the level of a particular esper.
It didn't actually develop anyone's power, it just supplemented it by using the brains of other espers.
Fucking speed reader.
Some day we'll get somebody to typeset the guide pages into english. That would help a lot.
Being a high-tier summoner requires calculation abilities similar to espers. While anybody can pick up summoning, those without both talent and work will not be able to reach even the middle-tiers. High tier summoners have calculation abilities at least on par with a level 4 esper, and the even more broken ones like Kyousuke and Albert are on par with level 5s.
I agree that Birdway and Aleister were probably talented. I'm trying to talk about Espers being talented and magicians being untalented in the general fashion that Kamachi uses when he writes about it.
Also forgot to include, not only do summoners need those calculation abilities, they also need to have absolute control over their body movements to put those calculations into practice. As far as I've seen, espers have not needed that level of control over their movements.
Yeah but that still serves to show that those people had powers in them. Also as I said the Parameter list is there to show that each individual could be developed, just that a lot aren't worth it in their eyes.
But in a way the untalented became talented in their own way. At this point gemstones may as well be separate from espers, because they're the only humans actually born with powers.
>accuse someone of speed-reading
>proceeds to speed-read a post
The summoning will probably make or break the show. At least if things go south, I can always fall back on the many screencaps of Aika that I'll have saved.
I'd personally look forward to all of the shitpost webms that the Queen would have. Pic related could work well for a "you're waifu a shit" edit.
Nuada just cast the die, what are you gonna do?
If you are talking about his speeches as him being pretentious, he actually does admit that it is basically all bullshit he comes up with on the spot to throw off his enemies. He's not really a moralfag. He's a straight up sophist. Since you already hate Touma, you should probably just try the first two volumes. It will give you a more in depth look on how he thinks. If you still hate him, its not worth the slog.
Enbi's only 13-14 and Hayabusa is a country-born man so he's probably pretty big.
What could he even write about? His harem is now on par with Shinobu's and even Hyakki Yakou when it comes to firepower. There's few enemies he'd have trouble with, and hell if he teamed up with Shinobu and merged their forces they could start world wars by themselves.
Only way would be to conveniently isolate him with a single girl during cases.
No, no, no. It's not the summoning that make or break the show, it's who are they going to get to voice the White Queen. Because until volume 3, the White Queen carries the entire series on her back.
So, who do you think should voice the White Queen?
The manga hasn't even finished volume 13.
>She had no weapons.
>In the many legends, that clothing would transform to match the current situation and would form billions or even trillions of weapons to slaughter her enemy.
>However, it was hard to say those weapons were the whole of her power. When speaking of pure destructive power, her two slender arms were the greatest of all.
>She was the strongest of the strong that ruled above the Regulation-class, the Divine-class, the Unexplored-class, and even the Three.
>She was an absolute white that did not allow for even a drop of impurity.
>She was an incarnation of benevolence, a symbol of sanctity, and a personification of radiance.
>She had exceptional power even among the Unexplored-class that existed beyond the gods of legend.
>She alone held the name of “absolute”.
>And she was the Material that was always found at the center of conflict on a global scale.
>She was a monster that would smile as she trampled over all the human good and evil that mankind had spent so much time and effort building up.

>Once she was summoned, it was all over.

Kamachi states in the afterword that since he just made up the plot as he went along by throwing in whatever he wanted to try out, there were "multiple candidates for Jinnai SHinobu's perfect form", and multiple heroines who could have had a serious shot at winning if events had gone slightly differently.
So in the final volume the series obviously ends with the Zashiki Warashi winning but
to defeat the final boss Shinobu lost in a world of infinite negative possibilities gets an assist from other Shinobus from other heroine routes including Yuki Onna route, Succubus/Witch route, mad underground financial duels route, Volume 5 Bad End aerospace engineer demon contractor route, yandere osananajimi route, evil youkai daughter route, Hafuri route, widow route, widow+Hafuri oyakodon route, and so on. Which was probably just Kamachi throwing a bone to everyone who preferred some other harem member over the Zashiki Warashi.
Actually, did Biondetta get Girl's Backdoor removed? If she didn't, isn't she actually going to become a really big hindrance for Kyousuke, considering how she's pretty much a puppet for her if she keeps it.
>Please understand that this is an unofficial statement. I am always receiving everyone's passionate opinions on this. Index anime is plausible, so please wait!!
It'll be announced in the year 2017, I'm sure of it.
She probably is the strongest based on what I've read on her. Just because she's the strongest doesn't mean she's unstoppable. I am sure keikaku man could come up with some crazy bullshit way to take her down given enough time. There are many precedents in Kamachi-verse where the weaker character can outmananeuver the stronger character. Hell, even a guy who's power is "fuck you, I win" lost.
No, it's not. Since all those alternate Shinobu had sacrificed themselves so this Shinobu can hook up with Yukari. It's a harem ending in that it's one of those many possible endings that Shinobu could get, but ultimately, all those harem ending are rendered moot since they would all sacrifice their respective ending so one of them can hook up with their actual true love Yukari.
One of the Shinobus was probably enough of a madman to get himself a harem ending, but not quite. They were multiple alternative versions of himself each of them with their own ending with a different girl, so it's more like different routes than a harem ending.
Hell, technically even the Shinobu we followed for the last two volumes of the series was slightly different from the Shinobu of the first seven since that one sacrificed himself and died eaten by his daughter.
Of course, the problem at that point isn't Shinobu but 'destiny is my bitch' Yukari. Go on, try to cheat on someone that manipulates destiny on a universal level. What can possibly go wrong?
There have been lots of keikaku's in Blood Sign involving the Queen so far. There's been a pretty bad track record since it usually ends up in Her control at some point.
Even the Unexplored-class
were meant to separate her powers and oppose her but she still took control of it all.Spoiler is from the epilogue from volume 3.
Blood Sign sure gets crazier in every volume.
Its pretty amazing how Kyousuke holds on his sanity everytime it was being crushed by the Queen.
Seems the plot now really starts to kick in after vol.5
Last time it happened was back around Railgun S and NT8/9. Shit's probably gonna hit the fan again.
It's inescapable anon, enjoy a tsundere Mariydi and her squadron of maybe-lesbians saving the day with the power of friendship while Mariydi has one-sided ship tease with Burning Alpha.

What's up with Kamachi and blonde lolis again? He always makes them best.
But True Best Girls have brown and White hair respectively. Actually, are there any blonde lolis in ZW or Blood Sign? I guess Olivia might have been blonde.
Checking back, yeah Olivia had blonde hair, I also forgot about Azalea.
>Mai Azalea is back and ready to kick ass
Volume 6 translation can't come soon enough.
But the only pinky promise was to never be separated. Kyousuke is the one who broke that, and he cut off his arm to recompense.
Keikaku doori. We're still missing Ya's character page so they'll probably show up for one more chapter.
Probably to get intercepted by Gunha or something based on their luck.
Probably. An artificial soul seems pretty unnatural to me.
I'll be fine with them as long as someone comes along at some point and breaks their Illusions in the near future.
I thought the time travel one was the one that was eaten. Arent they both technically the same one except one went through all that shit and the original one (ver2) got all those memories and experiences anyway?
Othinus could overpower IB, so the White Queen certainly can.
>“Do you know why my color is white?”
>“Because that way I can be dyed in your colors, brother! Kyah”
As long as it's Kyousuke, she still wins.
I don't think they actually died. The V39's alternative universes were just projections in the first place. And our Shinobu survived breaking through two or three of them before getting any assists.
didnt she let the poison of the other people controlling her in during the miniature garden incident? I remember there being mention of it just before the big ol "table flip"
They may have been different from here, but that didn’t mean they were failures. Those were the results of the decisions they had made, but I had mistakenly seen them as obstacles and viewed them as hells. That had pissed them all off. They were insisting that they would take care of and look after their own worlds.
Yeah, my point was that even if the other Shinobu got all the memories and experiences and is technically the same, the Shinobu we read for almost 7 whole volumes still died after coming back from the time travel.
that impurity was referring to the memories of her love I think. Since Kyousuke did not realize it was the Queen that he had been with the whole time he called it mistaken.
Well, she brute forced the teleportation that failed to affect him because of IB in the crossover if that counts.
named herself as Mary Ann, so she should be the same one. However I'm pretty certain when the different Queens were killed they combined back into the real one and collected their memories. At least one of the memories referenced in the flashbacks before volume 5 were from the fake Kyousukes.
To make things even more complicated, there's actually good evidence that the White Queen we see in the 'past' is actually the same one that's currently existing in the present as well. She had referenced two titles that was only achieved by Kyousuke in the first LN volume, nearly a decade after the flashback. So all White Queen we see, past, present, multiple copies, etc, are all possibly the same one.
How often in real life do people end up with their ideal 10/10 woman? Mikoto is at least halfway there in the sense that she acts like a big sister character due to her extraordinary circumstances involving the clones and her legion of adoring kouhai. Touma does pick up on that detail in the novels. Also consider the fact that she tutors and helps him with his homework between story arcs. Touma's dick is probably pretty confused.
>Touma hugging Mikoto didn't get an illustration
God dammit Haimura.
Well, there was also volume 2.
"That is the best human senses can do. That was a simple example using distance, but it could just as easily be the past and the future, cause and effect, confirmation and denial, here and there, coincidence and inevitability, or my brother’s world and my world. Do you see the value of the two sides now? The simplest thing can cause them to twist, waver, fade, and mix together"
Nice, I can't edit for shit so it's good someone else did a better job.
I wish, Kamachi, after years since French and Da killed a nameless character because Aleister-senpai noticed him.
If he had a name take for granted he would have just cut his hair again.
Scavenger talk a big game but as soon as they hit some actual dark side (i.e. Accel in his manga) they can't do shit. They'd have been the first or second team to get fully wiped out if they'd taken part in Battle Royale.
Of course they couldn't do shit, they were up against Accelerator.
Will he hide throughout Valentine's Day?
I fear for his sanity
If the love letter story is anything to go by the Harem will just trip over itself and never even get close to him.
