Average Rating

Academy City, Japan, is at the forefront of science. Besides being 30 years ahead of the world technologically, more than three-fourths of this peculiar city's population consists of students developing their psychic abilities as espers in various institutions. Among these students is Touma Kamijou, a high school boy with the lowest psychic rank of zero, but with a mysterious power no scientist can understand: "Imagine Breaker," which allows him to negate other supernatural abilities. This, however, doesn't affect Kamijou's life in the least as he plays his role as a regular teenager; that is, until he meets the strange Index Librorum Prohibitorum, a young girl who has memorized the entirety of the forbidden grimoires, and now a dangerous organization is hunting Index down. With several magicians looking to harm the girl, Kamijou will defend his new companion at all costs as he discovers a strange new realm of the supernatural.

Touma is a true practitioner of gender equality. He’ll punch anyone.

NotSanta

I wanted to like this. I tried.

SecularSpaceman

Touma is the blandest character in the cast, and Index is an obnoxious brat.

Levitate

Story felt fragmented & weak with one arc after another. Lackluster fights full of pointless dialogue. Wanted to like this but found it meh.

MrBop

The action wasn’t great (felt like it was always repeating itself) and fan service is awful.

Quadrigos94

Tons of different powers i like it. I want to know more about some characters, they didn’t get a lot of introduction. But this show is good

Rockweaver

This is the story before Railgun and helps to set the stage for everything that comes after. Strong Recommend to watch
