A Certain Magical Index Season 1 Part 1 Review [Capsule Computers]

Travis Bruno of Capsule Computers writes:

"A Certain Magical Index Season 1 Part 1 manages to not only take cliché elements and make them exceptional, it does so by finding the sweet-spot on the balance between exposition and action. While there are some drops in visual quality throughout the first half of the season, each battle is well animated and thought out well. With great characters and story arcs to kick things off and a killer cliff hanger leading into part 2, it appears that when science and magic collide, a great anime is born." (A Certain Magical Index, Anime, Toaru Majutsu no Index) 9/10

Man I loved this series when it was first showing in Japan. Shame that they took so long to get this thing finally released overseas.

Glad to hear that they retained the whole "says Misaka..." thing in there. The sister arc would have felt weird without it. Already put in my order for both parts of this but it is good to see that they managed to keep the quality of the show on the up and up.

Yes i loved it too.. its one of the best series ever. I also watched it when i was japan it was great! The whole Misaka thing was possibly one of the best thing they could of done. I dont know about that sister arc it felt ok with me.. im doing the same thing, im going to order it as well.

I liked season 1 but season 2 was horrible.

Man, this show was boring. I'd rather have eaten my own brains with a spoon than pick this up.

they do that to monkeys in certain parts of the world. the monkeys dont like it but the people eating the brains enjoy it.

I loved this show. Too bad JC Staff does terrible Blu-Rays.

I just got this from FUNi. this Monday. I felt that the series was slow from the start but at least I'm on disc 3 now and enjoying it.

season 1 was so so fucking good .. however the the second half felt a little empty for me.. but I enjoyed it anyway ( after ep 14 I think )

the rail gun spin off .. oh boy that one was surprisingly good. can't believe it was actually better the s2 of the original which was such a disappointment, however I think it had redeemed itself with last 5 eps.. but again I still enjoyed it.
