CyanideBlizzard's To Aru Majutsu no Index Tv Review

To Aru Majutsu no Index

Rated: 9

Toaru Majutsu no Index is one of those shows that completely caught me off guard. I deeply regretted not giving it a full view the first time I watched it. The first season has probably one of the strongest plot progressions I've seen in quite some time. Strong characters, a continually interesting storyline, well done animation and a great soundtrack, it's no wonder I've viewed this show three times. The worst part is I get more addicted to it each time I view it.

If you don't mind lengthy dialogue, some generic story elements here and there, and a bit of fan service here and there, Toaru season 1 will easily fit the bill. It's just such a shame that the second season seems even worse after my re-viewing of Toaru Majutsu no Index season 1.

Rated: 6

I really wish I could fully recommend the season season of Toaru as I could the first, but I cannot do so. Perhaps it's because there simply was no change from the original in structure and presentation and my tastes have simply changed, or perhaps it is because that the show just isn't as strong this time around. It's almost as if they decided to structure the show exactly how they did in the first season. To start it off slowly and slowly progress, instead of continuing off the momentum of the first season.

What was once a very refreshing anime series has slowly turned into a by-the-numbers series. There is no doubt that Toaru isn't a bad show, but with this second season I cannot say I'm really look forward to the third.

Wow, 24 episodes and they couldn't keep it at one continous story. Whats with new anime these days in either being in "mini-arc" or "episodic" formats. Now I mentioned "Mini-arc" at the beginning and I said I would elaborate. Well to me any plot-line or story within the main story that lasts 3 episodes or more is (by my personal opinion and definition) a "mini-arc". Let me say there's quite a number of them in this series. When you look back at the Clannad anime (for those who have seen it), it was the same. However Clannad had a true purpose for it that helped enhance its underlying concepts while here all these mini-arcs were suppose to increase your attachments to the characters. It failed.
