Girls punched in the face by Touma: 1.
Disappointing, to say the least. Even though Touma did punch that one girl IN SPACE. Now that I’ve kindly provided a picture, though, there’s no need to watch the rest of the movie.
If you do happen to be curious, it follows Index’s usual formula. Touma falls on top of several girls who immediately fall in love with him. One of them is a cute idol who has people after her. Something about science vs. magic yada yada. Miracles are made by not giving up! Touma punches a girl in the face and saves the northern hemisphere from destruction. In short, what we’ve come to expect from Index. Not great but not bad either. I am still watching it, after all…
- Storytelling – D – Not a particularly interesting story.
- Voice – C – This show’s one cool gimmick is having both magic and science / telepathy. It’s still a neat setting after all this time.
- Characters – B – How does this series have so many characters? I guess that’s one of the series strengths, though. It does have a ton of interesting characters. Most of them seemed to show up in the movie, and it just felt like an excuse to showcase them.
- Attention Grab – C – Was mostly sitting around waiting for some punching action as tons of characters flashed by.
- Production – B – Looks fine.
- Overall – C-
