A Certain Magical Index II
とある魔術の禁書目録II (Toaru Majutsu no Indekkusu II)

Synopsis

On a transfer from England to Japan the "The Book of the Law" has been stolen. This is all the more disturbing since deciphering this book supposedly spells the end of the Roman Catholic Church, and thus destroys the equilibrium of power in the world. To make matters worse the nun, Orsola Aquinas, who recently discovered a way to decipher the book, has been kidnapped...

At the Academy City the Daihaseisai, a sports festival, is underway. This "opportunity" is used to trade the Stab Sword — a spiritual weapon capable of killing Saints with one blow. But as it turns out the actual sword in question is far more dangerous...

TL;DR Review

A Certain Magical Index (とある魔術の禁書目録インデックス Toaru Majutsu no Indekkusu) is a Japanese light novel series written by Kazuma Kamachi and illustrated by Kiyotaka Haimura since April 2004.

The character design for season two has gotten worst. It’s like how many fetishes they can cram into a character. First, we already know about Index, a lolita nun complex character. How will they top this? Having multiple lolita nuns in a mini skirt wearing high platform shoes wielding a weapon of course.

The length they go to get a cringy fetish scene in is impressive. They manage to make the act of putting a necklace on a nun sexual. This series would have been much better if there weren’t so many unnecessary ecchi-ness.

Almost every story arc are a convoluted mess that was just an excuse for them to fight. Don’t bother trying to make sense of things.

My main issue with this series is Tomu. He’s that guy that lived a sheltered life and when he first encounters someone who’s less fortunate or down on their luck, he’ll preach to them the virtue of living a virtuous life and working hard, while talking down to them condescendingly. I swear I want to punch him every time he opens his mouth.

The action and combat scenes have also decayed slightly. There are not as many memorable fights this season around. The one that does stand out is as impressive as always.

It’s not all bad. Some of the jokes are better and got more chuckles out of me. There are still many of the same repeated flat-line comedy bits. Whenever you see Toma in front of a closed door, you know on the other side of that door is some naked girl that he is going to walk in on. I’ve lost track of how many times this was used.

Even after all of my complaints, I still recommend this anime to fans of action genre that don’t mind cringy ecchi or perhaps even enjoy them. I think I just grew out of the demographic they were aiming for. A Certain Magical Index contains graphic violence, nudity, tobacco consumption, and suggestive themes/dialogs. Intended for young adults.
