A Certain Magical Index Season 3 Episode 10: There's genuinely no effort to make this make sense any more. It almost feels like we're just transitioning from set piece to set piece because something has to happen next and there's little thought or effort put into it. Needless to say, this one is still on track to get dropped at the end of the Autumn anime season.

A Certain Magical Index Season 3 Episode 9 Review: I suppose I shouldn't expect anything more from this particular franchise at this point. The weakest elements of its writing remain in tact while the fun and excitement that managed to keep it floating in earlier seasons has all but vanished. Touma's Imagine Breaker is probably more powerful than he realises.

A Certain Magical Index Episode 8 Review: While the protagonist sleeps off being more or less obliterated, the glorified extras will stage a fairly drawn out battle that ends inevitably before another saint comes marching in.

A Certain Magical Index Season 3 Episodes 6 + 7 Review Episode 6 brings kind of to a close all the factions fighting for the tweezers, though they do throw out a new name of a new faction at the end and really there was no where near enough of an explanation for all the crazy going on from these people during these episodes or the lack of response from the city as they literally tore it apart.

A Certain Magical Index Season 3 Episode Review Title Image

A Certain Magical Index Season 3 Episode 4: Ditch The Main Cast And Go For A Ride

A Certain Magical Index Season 3 Episode Review Title Image

Theoretically we might have met a lot more of these characters before than I remember. I haven't watched seasons one and two of this for awhile but I'm going to be honest and just say that I recognised maybe four characters in this episode. The rest of the time we were just blipping between groups … Continue reading A Certain Magical Index Season 3 Episode 4: Ditch The Main Cast And Go For A Ride

A Certain Magical Index Season 3 Episode 3: More Jargon, More Punching

A Certain Magical Index Season 3 Episode Review Title Image

Part of me wonders whether there’s any reason why after two seasons of this show I firstly still like it and secondly am still watching it. Basically, while the plot continues to become yet more convoluted in the jargon they like to babble at the audience, every incident is resolved much the same way with Kamijou eventually punching whoever is responsible and destroying whatever mystic whosit they were chasing by touching it...

A Certain Magical Index Season 3 Episodes 1 + 2: That Time Something Happened to Kamijou

A Certain Magical Index Season 3 Episode Review Title Image

I've previously reviewed season1 of a Certain Magical Index and at the time I kind of made it clear that while I had fun enough with the show, I preferred the Railgun spin-off, in a very rare case of preferring a spin-off and that Index has some real issues. I never did review the second … Continue reading A Certain Magical Index Season 3 Episodes 1 + 2: That Time Something Happened to Kamijou
