To Aru Majutsu no Index
The story is set in a world where supernatural powers exist through science, and magic exists through religion.
In the story, Tōma Kamijō is an ordinary high school boy with terrible academic scores and a power called Imagine Breaker. Imagine Breaker can defeat any other power, but it also undermines Kamijō's own good luck. His Imagine Breaker's immense strength is literally immeasurable, so hapless Kamijō is listed at the supernatural level of 0. He happens to meet a girl in white hanging off his window balcony. The girl says she is being chased by sorcerers, and Kamijō learns that the girl is a Church of England nun whose memories have been forcibly replaced by Index-Librorum-Prohibitorum — the 103,000 forbidden texts of the Church.
Alternative Names: To Aru Majutsu no Indekkusu, A Certain Magical Index
Genre: Action, Comedy, Fantasy, Magic, Science Fiction
Based on a light novel series by Kamachi Kazuma, illustrated by Haimura Kiyotaka. Also released as a manga. Also adapted into the anime, To Aru Majutsu no Index II.
science and magic combined eh? well I have to say that the series is most definitely interesting ... explosions, naked women, and the 47 gallons of blood cliche what more could you ask for? overall good series Imho
I like sci-fi ~ fantasy crossovers like this. There's not much pot or character development in the first episode but the setting should allow for lots of cool powers.
An interesting concept where science, magic and supernatural powers exist in the same world. How much more will Heros effect shows to come? I suspect that anime with lots of superpowers will be the staple for years to come. Though this comedy romance stands well on it's own.
