Touma Kamijou's right hand has the ability to nullify any form of supernatural power, whether it be magical, psychic, or divine; he lives in a city populated by students with these powers. Yet unfortunately for Touma, his arm also seems to nullify good luck. Despite his bad luck, the boy tries to stay out of trouble and just live out his life, trying to be the "good guy" whenever he can; but trouble enters his life one day when he finds a young girl hanging on his balcony. She turns out to be a nun of the Church of England, bearing the Index-Librorum-Prohibitorum - a collection of 103,000 forbidden texts, and as a result has a number of people after her. How far will Touma go to protect his new companion from her pursuers?

Story
What better way to spend a snow day than wrapped up in a slanket with a mug of hot chocolate and an unhealthy marathon of anime ready to launch. Catching up on some more recent titles, I fired up To Aru Majutsu no Index with great expectations, only to be sensuously teased for 6 episodes before being dumped unceremoniously shortly after.

People speak highly of To Aru Majutsu no Index and I don't get why. The action is good(ish), I suppose. There are some character things that happen. There are some plot twists that are... well, there. We get light hearted fun and occasional fan service, and on the other hand the darker parts are also there giving diversity.
