Toaru Majutsu no Index Trolls us all

November 11, 2008

So let me paint a picture of the show Toaru Majutsu no Index. The first episode looked great, nice animation, decent music, standard main character who will give his life for the first girl he meets who needs protection while at the same time having a super unique power that allows him to defeat practically anyone.  Sadly things went downhill from there, I feel most of the problems are thanks to pacing…. but even that feels like a weak excuse for what’s happened.
