  • And here I thought it hasn’t been discussed here… and sure enough, certain characters are there that if exposed to the rest of us here who only watch the anime, would already be a spoiler. Nevertheless the explanation work has been done.

    And I’m amused by that.

    Well, for the light novel readers, Haimura has a Pixiv account and recently he has started doing some fan arts of the series he’s working for (Index, of course).

  • i hope index season 2 has the same quality as the first, not the crappy one railgun had, also that it doesnt get the filler treatment j.c staff is so mcuh known for, railgun already got it.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Toaru_Majutsu_no_Index_characters

    Shizuri Mugino (麦野 沈利, Mugino Shizuri?)
    One of the seven Level 5 espers, ranking fourth after Mikoto Misaka, she is the leader of ITEM, which is at odds with SCHOOL. She looks down upon lower-level espers and does not mind eliminating people who get in her way or go against her, regardless of whether they are enemies or allies. Yet in the Toaru Kagaku no Railgun manga, she is shown to be kind to her teammates and even protecting them when they are in danger. Her ability is Meltdowner (原子崩し, Genshi Kuzushi?, “Atom Breaker”), which converts electrons into an unstable destructive matter. Her power can create multiple beams that can sear through objects, or she can defend herself by creating a shield of energy. Before the events of the 3rd novel, she and her group are hired to stop Mikoto from destroying the facilities involving the Level 6 Shift project. Her overconfidence eventually results in her defeat against Shiage. After the events of volume 15, she was treated by Heaven Canceler for her injuries where she loses her left arm and right eye but is able create a new left arm made of energy. Due to trauma and psychological breakdown, she develops a disturbing sense of twisted love for the man who scarred her and helps him escape Academy City but not before declaring to castrate Shiage as her sign of affection. She later becomes part of the Academy City Invasion force against Russia.

    Frenda (フレンダ, Furenda?)
    Member of ITEM with blonde hair and wears a cap. She feels bossed around by her leader a lot yet in the Toaru Kagaku no Railgun manga, she is shown lovingly worshiping Shizuri just like how Kuroko worships Mikoto. She is skilled in close combat and has hidden knives in her shoes. She and the rest of ITEM are hired to stop Mikoto from destroying the last two facilities and is the first line of defense. She makes use of a tape of whiteout and an electronic device to create a fuse that can cut through various objects. Usually the fuses are connected to dolls with explosives within them. She betrays ITEM and tries to go to SCHOOL, but Shizuri Mugino catches her and she is executed.

    Saiai Kinuhata (絹旗 最愛, Kinuhata Saiai?)
    Member of ITEM. According to Teitoku Kakine, Saiai was a former subject of Project Mayday of Darkness (暗闇の五月計画, Ankoku no Satsuki Keikaku?), whose aim was to create a personal version of Accelerator’s ability by using a similar pattern of ability operation. Though the details are not mentioned, she only succeeded in creating a low-level self-defense capability. Her ability is the Level 4 Offense Armour (窒素装甲, Chisso Soukou?, “Nitrogen Armour”), which she uses to control the nitrogen in the atmosphere and create a few centimeters barrier of nitrogen that she can use to attack and defend.

    Rikou Takitsubo (滝壺 理后, Takitsubo Rikou?)
    Member of ITEM. Her ability is called AIM Stalker (能力追跡, Nouryoku Tsuiseki?, “ability tracker”) which she uses to track down espers by memorizing their AIM fields. Her ability also allows her to steal other espers’ abilities by memorizing their AIM, potentially allowing her to become the eighth Level 5 esper in Academy City. The downside of her powers is that she cannot activate it by herself therefore she takes a special drug in order to activate her powers. However, using too much of the drugs can cause a strain on her body and even kill her. She suffers from brain damage after fighting Teitoku Kakine; as a result, she can no longer use her esper abilities.

    • There’s nothing that I want more than good translations of the light novels.

      It’s a bit bothersome to see how much the characters were changed in the manga vs. the original material.

          Thank you for understanding me.
          Being very tired, we tend to be harsh to others. It can’t be helped^^;
          As for ”trying to be superior” thing,
          I read his profile just now, and I found him a guy who used to live in Japan.
          So, it’s no wonder he used Japanese words, and maybe there was no intention of ”trying to be superior” in his mind.

          @ Anon 12:08 27/04/2010, ShiraYuki619
          Since you are here, you guys must be fans of Index and/or Railgun.
          Then, we all are friends in a sense.
          Of course I like Index and Railgun too, as well as Miku and Dragon Ball 😉

        • Anon 00:36,

          I wrote that right before I went to sleep, because I’m dead tired and caffeine level in my blood was over 9000…

          I was just thinking at the time, “Sure this is an otaku-centric website, but typing in Japanese characters in a site that mainly uses English with so many frequents cannot understand anything OTHER than English, has a hint of trying to be superior(elitist)”. I don’t give a damn about my own ego most of the time, even as people call me ‘fag’ or ‘troll’ or ‘basement dweller'(safe to say I’m NOT the latter. I have a job and I pay tax annually), but behaviours like that pisses me off. And I saw him did the same in other articles, although this is the first time I actually typed something to him.

          If ShiraYuki619 honestly does that out of pure habit, then the apology’s from me. However, I’d like to point out that since it’s the Net, by displaying such a behaviour, he must understand that he is exposing himself to the scrutiny that EVERYONE will face, as I have -and thoroughly accept and respect- from you.

        • @Anon 22:45 26/04/2010
          You’re saying too much…

          Apparently, you and ShiraYuki619 are both non-Japanese.
          Please be nice to each other.
          I love the way you write Japanese, unless they are offensive…
