Index is still a fugitive and many powerful magical organizations and individuals want to take her to use the books in her memory, eliminating her in the process.

Do you like guys who overcome ridiculous odds in ridiculous ways alongside frequently naked lolis? What?
Both needless and TAMnI II and needless have that, a lot of that. Needless is more over the top with both ridiculous odds and ridiculous ecchi, but TAMnI II isn’t against pitting Touma against scary guys while forcing its titular character into her birthday suit.
Gene Starwind and Jim Hawkins make a living on various jobs and bounties. While waiting for their ticket to hit it big time, a mysterious woman named Hilda leaves them with a key to the puzzle of finding a starship of great power, known only as the Outlaw Star. What are these long lost spaceships and what is the Galactic Leyline?
Despite the difference in age, Outlaw Star and Needless share many traits that will appeal to similar audiences.
First, there's the futuristic setting in both, with common devices such as highly developed robots.
Secondly, the two are wacky, hyperactive, stylish shows which narrate the story of a quaint group of people traveling together for their convergent goals.
The characters work great together - albeit they're usually arguing or doing antics, you can tell there is a strong bond of trust amongst the members of the gang that needs no words. Some of them don't have memories of their past and intend to recover them during the journey.
There is also this strong sense of freedom on each of these anime which makes the experience all the more enjoyable in a funky, laid back manner. Besides, they won't bore you to death with hackneyed morals such as ''Do not kill your enemies no matter what''. It's to kill or be killed here, and that is taken for granted to great effect.
Last but not least, the protagonists, Adam Blade and Gene Starwind, are both the embodiment of badassery and will surely be loved by the same kind of viewers.
If you watched either of them and you liked it, I can't stress enough how much you should give the other a try.
Asuna Harukaze is a girl who loves tennis to the point where she practices her swings with a pitchfork while working on the family farm. At school she is a member of the Soft Tennis Club along with the enthusiastic Kotone, food-crazy Chitose and bizarre yet talented Kurusu. With a big tournament approaching, the girls are taking practice more seriously than ever, but with Asuna’s strange and perverted logic surfacing at every turn and Chitose’s inability to win a single match, can the club emerge triumphant and make it to the nationals?
Maybe this recommendation is kinda strane (fighting and superpower vs soft tennis sport anime), but both series are quite similar.
First - You can never predict, what will happen next, because gagsare totally unpredictable.
Second - Big ammount of fanservice.
Third - Characters in both series sometimes are acting cool, but it's only their fake side. Most of them are unbelievably dumb and they often are making themselves idiots...
