Those who have been eagerly awaiting a 3rd season for the magical To Aru Majutsu no Index may have only a short time left to wait as news of a 3rd season has been leaked, an unofficial announcement but one that fans have clamored about regardless.

Animax variety show Anime Culture Club wrote up a preview for their impending October 1st episode, claiming that To Aru Majutsu no Index’s producer Kohei Kawase and editor Kazuma Miki will be making guest appearances and that the 3rd season has been green-lit:


“To Aru Majutsu no Index, captivating many fans since season 1 began airing in 2008 and season 2 in 2010. Over six years later, the broadcasting of season 3 has been green-lit! About a decade after season 1, what kind of story will turn out?”

This text has since been altered (perhaps confirming its validity), but the episode will air on the same day of the “Dengeki Bunko Autumn Festival 2017” where an announcement panel will take place.

    I loved the index-tan for the movie, where Touma debates which girl he wants to punch, reiterating that he believes in true gender equality. The joy he has when he decides whom to punch is great.

    That is pretty much the sole reason I don't like him as much as I should.

    I'm all for season 3 since railgun and index both lead to the same point, teh war between magic and science (Magicians and Espers).

    In season 3 I expect top see both Index and her shenanigans and Misaka and her shenanigans.

    All shenanigans are welcome.

    Don't forget Accel-kun's shenanigans! Says Misaka as Misaka stares wide-eyed at a busty Misaka.

    I just wish to see Kuroko gets her one of her own clone-sisters, and does her shenanigans on the sister, and have the sister reciprocate.

    Or just an episode of her finding out, and tries to do her shenanigans.

    (Forgetting about budget constraints) it would be perfect to have a 37,or so, season so it can cover all the way to WW3. But that's just wishfull thinking.

    Ending the season with Touma falling into the sea with a massive amount of debris from over 30000ft? Fans would rage.

    It's been so long since I've seen either it's hard to remember much about the plots, start points and end points let alone the "side" stories.
    I guess I'm going to have to go back and watch ALL OF THEM AGAIN!! (Woo Hoo!)

    At least I remember they were ALL good!
    Personally I liked the Index plot line better than the Rail-gun plot line. If I remember correctly there were some heavy scenes in Index.
    Oddly enough......nobody's mentioned Komoe Sense!!
    Without a doubt the Cuuuuuuutest sense in all of Animedom!

    Railgun season 3 should be soon to follow!

    Comment by Anonymous

    Railgun S2 was terrible. They made it like Index when it should be cute and entertaining. There were a few good bits, but mostly it was endless battles and stupid plot lines.

    I only want a new Railgun series if they're going to make it a real Railgun series, not a lazy Index copy.

    Every anime is terrible? Don't like the endless eights? Only this time in twos?

    How about a ton of other manga and anime with cross over arcs?

    More sexually explicit middle school girls and laden homosexual degeneracy between some of the characters? Why not?

    You goes to a church or something? Getting triggered not due to heretical Xian characters, but over partial nudity and homosexuality?

    Are you going to burn fictional characters now? And not for heresy this time, but for nudity and homosexuality?

    Why should you care anyway? Manga fans of railgun & index being more "sexually pure" than you and your maga god-emperor ilk?

    as much as i like the idea of a season three of index , its pretty clear a majority fans want to see a new season of toaru kagaku no railgun , or even a tv version of toaru kagaku no accelerator.

    AM I WRONG?????

    Yeah, no. Index III will be lit as fuck. If it's 12 episodes, it'll cover at least the Avignon, Battle Royal, and Aqua of the Back volumes. And if we get 24, we'll see the British Royal Family.

    Railgun III would probably only cover the Daihaseisai, and a filler arc. It's good, but doesn't reach the height of Misaka's side of the Sister's arc that was Railgun II.

    Accelerator is kinda meh, and drags on a lot. It'll probably look really good animated, but otherwise the plot isn't all that great.

    There are about 25 novels of the source material yet to be adapted. If they actually wanted, that is enough material for 3 more 25 episode seasons at their usual pace (average of 3 episodes per novel). Given Kamachi usually pusblishes 3 Index novels a year, they could basically keep running an Index anime for 2 full years with little to no fillers. There is no excuse to make a 1-cour at this point...

    Budget is not actually an excuse, when there other series that manage to do it for way longer. Interest may be, since that is the actual factor to earn money while airing.

    Yes there is an excuse. Budget. And interest. And, well, budget. Your asking for a lot here to be honest, i'd say just let them make a season 3, with at least 12-24(or 25) episodes and be on our mary way.

    Yes he did, to applease the type of fans who likes Kyubey and its dealings. Maybe instead of only the likes of Awaki, we will even see Fre nda involved with someone else in other arcs. Not something personally likes.

    Index & Railgun series are indeed somewhat "gender equal", but also with littling weighing no more than 90 lb, KO grown pussy men without any of the magic side or science side super powers.

    This time, instead of murdering little girls, or murdering scientists, he gets to murder corpses. He helps a necromancer and such. Accelerator is all about solving his problems by murdering groups of individuals after all.
