Story Synopsis

Toaru Majutsu no Index is set in Academy City; a technologically advanced academic city located in western Tokyo which studies scientifically enhanced superhuman students known as espers who develop powers. However, within this world of scientifically developed superpowers exists an underground world of magic and occult connected to the religious institutions of the world.

Kamijou Touma, an unlucky boy who happens to be one of the many students within Academy City, possesses a mysterious power in his right hand known as the 'Imagine Breaker'; an ability which allows him to negate all forms of supernatural powers, whether they are magical or psychic. One day, he finds a young girl hanging on his balcony railing named Index. She is a nun from Necessarius, a secret magic branch of the Anglican Church, and her mind has been implanted with the Index Librorum Prohibitorum: 103,000 original grimoires that the Church has removed from circulation. Their encounter leads him to meet others from the secretive worlds of science and magic.

Kamijou Touma's unusual power places him at the center of conflicts related to both science-based espers in Academy City and magicians. As Kamijou Touma tries to help and protect his friends, he learns that the people he knows are not as they appear and begins to attract the attention of magicians and espers alike as they try to unravel the secrets of Academy City and Index.

Characters' Introduction

Characters' Introduction

Kamijou Touma

Kamijou Thumb.jpg

Classification: Esper

Affiliation: Academy City - A Certain High School

Ability: Level 0

Power: Imagine Breaker

The primary male protagonist of the series. Despite being classified as a Level 0 esper, his right hand possesses the uncanny ability to negate all forms of supernatural phenomena upon contact including magic, esper powers and - much to his chagrin - his own good luck. Touma is the type that acts before he thinks. He can never just sit around upon seeing someone in a pinch and will go to great lengths to protect or help the person. This he does at great risk to himself, which typically results in him being hospitalized. While he is an idealist for the hopes of other people, ironically he is cynical about himself possibly because of his powers.

Index

Index Thumb.jpg

Classification: Magician

Affliliation: Anglican Church - Necessarius

Magic Name: Dedicatus545

Power: Index Librorum Prohibitorum

The titular main heroine of the series. Due to her possessing a perfect memory, her mind has been implanted with the Index Librorum Prohibitorum: 103,000 grimoires that have been removed from circulation. As such she holds a vast amount of magical knowledge that if properly used would allow her reach the realm of a magic god. Despite this, Index is unable to cast any magic herself; however she can use the grimoires' knowledge to analyze spells and protect herself from enemy magicians. She is an enormous glutton who despite having great knowledge of history and culture, is completely clueless about science and technology.


Misaka Mikoto

Misaka Thumb.jpg

Classification: Esper

Affiliation: Academy City - Tokiwadai Middle School

Ability: #3 Level 5 - Railgun

Power: Strongest Electromaster

The second main heroine of the series. As Academy City's strongest Electromaster, she can generate up to 1 billion volts of electricity, enough to cause city wide blackouts. She gains her ability name from using her ability to quickly accelerate small arcade coins to Mach speeds, resulting in a makeshift railgun. Despite displaying an image of being a refined lady from the prestigious Tokiwadai Middle School, in reality she's short-tempered, prideful, and has an improper attitude with some slight tomboyish tendencies and insecurities. Even so, she is generally friendly and easygoing and doesn't look down on lower-level espers at all.

Stiyl Magnus

Stiyl Thumb.jpg

Classification: Magician

Affliliation: Anglican Church - Necessarius

Magic Name: Fortis931

Power: Flame and Runic Magic

A formidable magician from Necessarius wearing a black priest's attire who reports directly to the Archbishop.

Despite appearing to be an adult with a short temper, he is a tall teenager that hides his kind heart. A former partner of Index; he fights to protect her from any harm.


Accelerator

Accelerator Thumb.jpg

Classification: Esper

Affiliation: Academy City - Nagatenjouki Academy

Ability: #1 Level 5 - Accelerator

Power: Vector Transformation

The second male protagonist of the series. He is Academy City's strongest esper with the ability to manipulate the vectors of anything that he touches. In the past, he was involved in a great incident due to his powers which left him greatly distrustful of all those around him. His school life had him completely separated from other students while his title of the strongest has led him to be constantly targetted by delinquents and other challengers looking for fame. As a result, he believes only in power and trusts no one. While fighting, he invokes fear and has a sadistic tone. Despite all of this, deep down he is someone that aches for the light.

Kanzaki Kaori

Kanzaki Thumb.jpg

Classification: Magician

Affiliation: Anglican Church - Necessarius; Amakusa Christian Church - Priestess

Magic Name: Salvare000

Power: Saint; Amakusa-style Combat/Magic

Previously the Priestess of the Amakusa Christian Church, she defected to Necessarius after seeing her own blessing inflict misfortune to the comrades she was protecting.
