The 24-episode anime A certain Magical Index as was produced by J.C. Staff and was directed by Tatsuyuki Nagai.

A Certain Magical Index is set in the fictional Academy City. The Academy is a remarkable school in west Tokyo that studies only those individuals who are considered gifted students. The Academy classifies gifted students as those whose magical powers exceed that which is normal for the average residents of Academy City. The show follows one particular gifted student: Toma Kamijo. Toma Kamijo is a student at Academy City who, with the help of a discovered Orpheus armband called the Imagine Breaker, wields the power to alter his luck and temporarily rob others of their magical powers. It is this armband combined with his other powers that label him as gifted and allows his entrance into the school.

His life is changed forever after meeting a girl called Index. She reveals to Toma that she is a nun from Necessarius, a top-secret branch of the Church of England. She further reveals that she has been implanted with the Index Librorum Prohibitorum, a secret stash of 103,000 books, which were removed from regular circulation due to their remarkable content. His encounter with Index leads him on a journey where he meets others from the secret underworld of Academy City. This world is new to him, and it proves to be dangerous as both magic and science collide with sometimes-dangerous consequences. However, Toma's unusual magical abilities continue to place him at the center of conflicts between magicians and science based Espers (psychics and power users). Toma attempts to protect his friends during these conflicts, but his actions end up drawing the attentions of both magicians and Espers as they attempt to learn the secrets of and control Academy City and Index.

A Certain Magical Index Full Episode Guide

  • GROUP continues to order Accelerator around by giving him an assignment to kill Misuzu--which leads to Accelerator protecting the woman just to spite the organization when Skill Out attacks.

  • Accelerator is injured, but even in that state he's approached by a city-employed organization that wants to recruit him. As rumors of an impending war spread throughout Academy City, the students in Toma's class decide to throw a party.

  • In order to save Last Order, will Accelerator sacrifice himself? Vento's past is revealed, Toma delivers a very Toma speech, and Index sings a song as the battle rages on in Academy City.

  • When Accelerator deduces who is pulling all the strings in Academy City, no person--or building--is safe from his rage. Meanwhile, Toma goes on a mad dash through the city looking for Last Order, but what he finds is an angel.

  • Accelerator manages to escape from Kihara, taking Index with him. Elsewhere, Toma and Last Order are on the run from Hound Dog--but the real threat to their lives may come from Vento.

  • Mikoto convinces Toma to sign up for a couples cell phone contract with her so she can get an adorable promotional item--but how far are the two willing to take the ruse before they get, well, maybe a little too close.

  • Toma goes head-to-head with Bishop Biagio during an attempt to rescue Agnese. As the battle rages, the Queen of the Adriatic Sea is revealed to be a ship that can completely destroy Academy City.

  • Agnese makes a deal with Toma and Orsola that guarantees their safe escape from the Roman Orthodox ship--so long as they take Sisters Angelene and Lucia with them. As they search for the nuns, they uncover more about the ship's terrible true purpose.

  • After winning a trip to Italy, Toma and Index run across a few old acquaintances. But wherever these two go, disaster is sure to follow--this time in the form of assassins!

  • As Toma and his group try to track down Oriana, they discover that a "Shorthand"--a specialized spell that operates on its own once being cast--is shorting out their magic. Before they can deactivate it, though, an incident happens at the middle school.

  • It's the Daihasei Festival, and everyone's parents are in town! As Toma and Mikoto compete against each other in various events, a Roman Orthodox magician and her assistant negotiate to purchase a powerful relic from the English Puritan Church.

  • Mikoto's clones use their telepathic network to enlist Misaka 10032 to aid them in stopping Musujime from rebuilding the Tree Diagram in an effort to find out my humans are the only beings with esper powers.

  • A high-tech suitcase is stolen from couriers, and Kuroko is on the job! But the contents of the package may prove to be more dangerous than any robbers or petty crooks. Also, what is up with all the strange weather in Academy City?

  • The Roman Orthodox nuns continue their attack as Orsola risks everything to have Index decipher the Book of Law. The infamous grimoire could help them finally defeat their enemies--but that's only if it works like its supposed to.

  • With Orsola taken hostage, Toma and his gang take the battle to the church. There, Index unleashes a mighty spell. Things look bleak for the Roman Orthodox, but their willingness to sacrifice themselves might just give them the upper hand.

  • The Book of Law is an encrypted grimoire that only one nun has the skills to decipher--and it's gone missing! If its magic is ever used, it will bring about all sorts of ruin. Now, the church just has to keep the gifted nun safe. How hard can that be?

  • As summer ends, Toma desperately tries to catch up on homework--but that's totally out of the question once a magician named Yamisaka kidnaps Index. As Toma tries to rescue his friend, he finds there may be more to her captor's motives than just malice.
