Toaru Majutsu No Index

Just finished watching this - only took me ten years.

It's good for the most part, but the pacing is terribly uneven.  It ploughs through six volumes of light novels in 24 episodes, but some of them take up six full episodes, while one is dispatched in just two.  And because of that the story never entirely jells.  (Also partly because the story is complete nonsense.)  The first arc - which is given the most time - definitely works the best, but even that is somewhat rushed.

Those quibbles aside, they do manage to do many things well.  Every character in the rather busy opening credits is shown, fleshed out, and placed in context in the respective halves of this first series.  Except for the maid girl, who is mostly still just a caricature, and Uiharu and Saten, who are major characters in Railgun but I don't recall ever seeing in Index, not even in the background.

Onwards and Railgunwards!

Don't recall any pengis, though.  Sorry.  Here are some substitute pengis for you.

And extra substitute lazy Sunday pengis!

1 I wandered off from both Index and Railgun after a while... but DANG those theme songs are so very in my wheelhouse. I still put them into the phone's rotation playlist every so often.

2 Speaking of rotation, did you notice the wind farm turns the wrong way? The straight edge of the blades should be the leading edge.

3 Oddly, I can only find Index II on my drive.

Apple pies are delicious. But never mind apple pies. What colour is a green orange?
