Set in Academy City, a city of scientifically advanced superhuman students, located to the west of Tokyo, in a world where magic is also real. Kamijou Touma's right hand, the Imagine Breaker, can negate all magic, psychic, or divine powers, but not his own bad luck. One day he finds a young girl, Index, hanging on his balcony railing. She turns out to be a nun from the Church of England, and her mind has been implanted with the Index Librorum Prohibitorum — all the magical texts the Church has removed from circulation. His encounter leads him to meet others from the secret world of science and magic and right into an adventure where science and magic collide.

A rather slow passed anime with very little plot drive.
Sometimes seems like a predictable anime since the main character usually saves the girl (in every arc) and one shots the main villain with a punch until something completely random happens and random things seem to happen a lot in season 2.
The dialog is complicated in it self, while the subtitles make things worse, especially when the main character trys to over dramatically lecture the enemy in one of the most cliche ways possible.
But i liked the story's concept of the 2 sides (magical and science) and some of the arcs are pretty good especially the Academy City Invasion Arc.
In short i prefer Accelerators way of handling things over Toumas.
