All right, Impz has finally sold out to the masses by blogging the 3rd episode of Index. Well, sold out might be adding quite a bit of an exaggeration because I am actually enjoying this series quite a lot.
Anyway, a recap of last episode is due. Last week, Index collapsed with a huge blood wound. Toma, as usual, shows his extremely gar side to kick the ass out of the seemingly evil goth magician punk, Style Magnus. The only way to save Index is to find a non-psychic user. How do you find that in a psychic town? Find the loli, of course!
Wait, you want me to give you the breath of life? But… but…. yada!!!
Index got hurt where it hurts the most, and required Komoe to do some magic ritual to close her wounds. After confirming the time they are in (where I have no clue why it is so bloody important), Index started to construct an altar. This altar is set up as a representation of the room in order to stimulate the senses of magic.
I mean, in order to reach role play healing orgasm, you got to make it more realistic. Wait a minute…
It’s my first time… so don’t be scared if I bleed too much.
Of course, Komoe being the rational adult, said that the best course of action is to get an ambulance. Index told her rational brain to shut up, and added that her wounds cannot be healed by normal means.
Well done, To Aru Majutsu no Index, for making the most rational person a chain smoking loli. Soon, I will be thinking whether I will see Komoe smoke right in front of the screen with eroge behind her table. That will be freaking awesome.
Sing when you live. Sing wrongly, and DIE.
…and I ain’t even lying about it. Index told her to replicate her singing as it is part of the ritual to conjure the healing magic. If Komoe is unable to follow her accurately, the unbalanced forces in the magic will kill her. Despite the difficulties, Komoe is at least able to conjure the powers of the Undine.
To conjure the angel, you must sell your soul to the devil
So, they have this nice magic symbol that strangely looks like a satan symbol. My belief is that this magic thingy is based on traditional celtic magic. I could be terribly wrong, so someone with spoilers can spoil me on this later. In addition, it’s pretty ironic that Komoe is saying “cute angel” to envision the healing magic while they are actually conjuring a devil in disguise. Wonderful stuff there.
That’s the devil in disguise. Look at its wings, they are whitened!
Komoe was distracted after seeing the angel manifest itself partially. Due to her distraction, the angel dissipated. Index told her to continue on imagining an angel in her mind so that it will manifest in real life.
Oh, my dear, what big teeth you have.
Better to bite you, my chain smoking loli.
Long story short, the magic ritual was successful as enough mana was replaced in Index’s body. With that, the “John’s pen mode” was deactivated. With that, the serious Index is displaced by the normal Index.
I can’t wait to bite my Yuuji-kun… I mean Toma.
Index mumbles how she is happy that she will not cause Toma any more trouble, before slipping into unconsciousness happily.
You know, I was fully expecting Index to be a tsundere, but she turns out to be a rather dere-dere characterl. I am not complaining however. Most of the “lolish tsundere” characters in anime have turned out to be physically abusive and the dere-dere side is rather too weak to appreciate the character at all. So ya, Index is good stuff to appreciate.
WHAT DID YOU SAY?
HOW DARE YOU COMPARE MY WONDERFUL FLAT A-CUP CHEST with THAT index? They are DFC-certified!
Any educated viewer who does not watch To Aru Majutsu no Index will think that Toma is a bloody lolicon. By the way, my friends, this is a clear example on how you twist any evidence to your advantage. Whenever someone tells you that To Aru Majutsu no Index is a loli show, show them this screenshot and ask them.
“Who do you think is the loli here? *Hint* – only one of them is a real loli.”
See them baffle so badly and then laugh at their inability to decipher loli and pseudo loli. Remember, the whole point of arguing is to win, not to be correct.
You better appreciate me more later!
Komoe then showed why she is an adult by telling Toma to explain his relationship with Index. I mean, bringing a bloodied girl to a teacher in the middle of the night can be considered rather indecent behavior. Toma, as expected of a GAR character, sucks at lying. When I mean suck, I mean totally failing at lying to a chain-smoking pseudo loli that ends sentences with cute phrases.
Don’t get me wrong. I love Toma. In fact, I am glad that he is just about the only male protagonist in a shounen sort of series that has some spine. I mean, most of the lead guys in such type of series cannot wait to bend their back to pick up the soap, but god Toma makes sure that he is the one that shoves the soap into never-land.
After the conversation, Komoe told Toma she wants an answer because she has to make a report about this. She continues to convince everyone that she has to act maturely like an adult. In the end, she left to buy food for them, and mentions that she will forget about the whole incident when she returned. Of course she did, she only has time to think about food.
I actually hold a terrible secret. One that will scare men to their mothers… I have 13,000 BOOKS IN MY HEAD!
After Komoe leaves them, Index told the dreadful secret about the books in her head and what it means to have that knowledge (KILL THE WORLD, BLAH BLAH BLAH WITH MAGIC). Komoe fears that Toma will be scared away since she is a freak.
My god, Index, you are a bloody nerd.
It’s not my fault I love books so much. They are so nice to bite at.
Awww, why did you flick your hand on me? Now I have to make a moe face for great fanservice.
Of course the GAR Toma considers her worries to be BS. Anyway, his hand is deus ex machina so there is no worry at all. Index reminds him about his supplementary lessons to protect her. Toma tries to hide the fact that he sucks at studying, and Index got pissed off enough to bite him.
I actually find this part of the episode rather endearing as it really shows that Index is a very kind soul that shows her feelings outwardly. I will burn anyone with cold flames if they call Index a tsundere. She is hardly one at all… except the bites.
You know, Style, why does that stupid Impz refuse to take a screenshot of my face?
Of course, Style and another mysterious girl with extremely copious amount of bare skin looks on. Honestly, they are discussing about Toma’s powers, and he said that a normal person does not have the ability to destroy his Innocentus. Style seems jealous that the two are having fun together. Style also asked when they have to destroy that happiness again.
I promise not to spoil anyone about Style and the samurai girl’s role in this series.
Gee, I don’t know. Maybe because he wants to create a meme called LPL – Loli raped by Pedo Loli.
I had to do that. Sorry.
Coffee milk is in fact bad for health. Drink Milk Tea for a better alternative!
At night, Index goes with Toma to the public bath. Index mentions about how she lost all her memories. Toma was surprised and suddenly looked angry. Index asked whether it is his puberty, and Toma said that her DFC figure inspires zero erotic feel to give him those feelings. Toma also made fun of Index by saying that he is not looking forward to any shoujo romance with her. That made Index very annoyed, and she bit him again.
Honestly, I have no clue what is going on despite understanding the dialogue. That is why I am sounding so serious with a proper summary in this paragraph. In general, when I sound serious, it means I am clueless.
Is this the new age of “Tooth fetish.”
I think so.
And I finally appeared! Wait, the show is over? WTF!
Of course Index ran off by herself and left Toma alone. Suddenly, a barrier was set up…and the samurai girl appeared. Will Toma be leveled up to a woman-hitting man?
