Being directed by recommendations from shakugan no shana and Zero no tsukaima. This show is actually VERY VERY similar. Who would of guessed it was by same company lol.
Touma is your normal highschool kid, but one thing makes him special. His right arm dispelled or denies magic or esper abilities. Once day he meets index who is hanging on his balcony. Basically he decides to defend her and there is a hince of romance in it. (not as much as SnS or ZnT), but it is still there! Story is really unique and though through. I loved the story, but one problem. SO MANY FRIGGIN PLOT HOLES! half way through the series 2 of the secondary/main characters just....leave. You never really see them. Also theres not much of an explination on things, alot there is a couple episodes that just crappy fillers. In all honesty they should of worked a bit on it. (spoiler i guess) What pissed me off the most was they introduced a new character on the 2nd to last episode and the series ends off with that character being friends with index and touma. Ending was TOTALLY CUT OFF! THANK GOD FOR SEASON 2! Id be really upset because they had a huge cliffhanger at the end. Plot was nice, but it was scattered all over the place. This is the only thing that really made the anime suffer, but i just ignored it and enjoyed so not a huge problem to me. Im willing to forgive :)
Animation was quite nice actually, scenes with esper abilities or magic were really detailed and i enjoyed the lights.....shiny lighttsss :D. Character's designs were unique and ones not to forget. Im not a huge person on describing animation. Just see it for yourself
SOUND- Oh god i loved the sound. The opening and closing songs are now on my ipod! Fun to listen to. Never skipped the opening or ending. Quality of the sound was pretty decent, and the voice actors voice was basic i mean nothing really special about it, but im not one to rant on voice actors. Doesnt matter to me really. (though i hate Dubbed)
Index is one of the MOST unique and differant characters. A nun. Wow, ive never really seen one as a main character. Her personality may not be special, but the appearance and her attitude towards touma is what made me like her. Touma's personallity was SO similar to the main guy in SnS and ZnT its like they are all based on each other. Anywhos you have a smoker fire guy, a best friend who is actually a mage/spy. But overall the characters are unique and interesting. So good work.
Overall this was a fun anime to watch, and i cant wait to start season 2. If you liked ZnT or SnS. This is the perfect anime for you. If your a picky spoiled brat who only cares about the plot and takes anime way to seriously. Dont even bother, because you will wanna rip your throut out. I enjoyed this anime so much, and i hope you like it as much as i do. :)
