    Episode 1

    As luck would have it...

    It has been quite awhile since this show was put out as this is quite a long novel series, and the two seasons barely scratched the surface. As usual, Touma is down on his luck as he runs into so many unfortunate incidents like always. But the attack on Academy City has put everybody on edge, and now Touma is going to France with Tsuchimikado after his friend kills some old lady who is on the board of directors and fears that the church is up to something wicked again. So it's off to France as the war between magic and science continues, and it's nice to get reacquainted with everybody as that's how most of the episode is spent.

    Seeing that I have seen everything in the Acceleraildex (remember that the Accelerator spinoff is getting an anime adaptation) series dubbed that I think I'll be following the simuldub after this arc, and I know when I reach the end as that's when Touma ends up in the hospital.

      Episode 2

      Grounded.

      And Touma is back at it again using his right hand to fight back and taking all the blows as he is in France on a mission to put a stop to the Document of C. Itsuwa and Stiyl are back, and they have quite a tough task ahead as they need to stop a power stream, but that's not easy as long as they are dealing with Terra as this earth mage is just as formidable as the wind mage Vento was. Pretty eventful episode that was going to show that this problem is going to be tough to fix.

        Re: Episode 1+

        I loved Index. I loved Railgun. Now that this is finally available, I'm just too damn lost with this 3rd season, as it's been so long since I've rewatched both series. This is a seriously rich season for me, and there are a lot of shows that I'll be binging the earlier seasons before hitting up the new stuff. Sure, I remember the mains, but the details can get fuzzy or lost, and are often important. This show looks gorgeous. But I've some catching up to do...bbl.
        My Avatar: The lovely Mikuru Asahina from The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya. Why do I stick with her in a world of constantly changing avatars? Because:
        1) Her friendly, playful attitude in that picture, (despite being forced unwillingly into cosplay), reflects my own friendly, playful personality;
        2) Mikuru-chan is an excellent combo of smoking hot and super sweet cuteness; and
        3) It makes it easiier for me to find my own posts in threads.

          Episode 3

          He doesn't remember.

          So it turns out that Touma lost his memories as there's a lot more to the Imagine Breaker than he thought. In the meantime, Academy City is attacking in retaliation for their assault on Academy City, and it's causing a lot more trouble for Touma and company seeing that he was about to crush Terra knowing that his special weapon has a weakness that only one target can be attacked at a time. And now Mikoto knows about Touma's amnesia, so it will be interesting to see where all this leads to as now there's Acqua to deal with after he punishes Terra for his incompetence. There sure is a lot of chaos on many fronts.
