Summary:

After Touma proects Hyouka from the golem, Touma tells her to stop sitting around as the golem behind him shatters from Touma’s Imagin Breaker. Sherry begins creating another golem by writing on the wall; as she compliments Hyouka on how the world hasn’t thrown her away yet, Anti-Skills show up. Hyouka questions why everyone is there to save her, and Touma responds that there’s reason needed to help a friend. Anti-Skills open fire on Sherry, and she starts another spell. As the gunfire isn’t taking down Shery, Touma runs up to the front dodging the golem and punches Sherry right to the face. Sherry draws another rune on the floor and creates a hole in the ground to escape. After Sherry escapes Touma recounts what he knows about Sherry: 1.) she wants to start a war between ESPers and magicians, and 2.) She’s from Necessarius. the latter reasons causes Touma to think that Index is a target as well.

Back on the surface, Index and Mikoto are sweating in the hot sun. Mikoto is surprised at Index’s clothes since they’re held together by safety pins, which causes her to recount the time Touma used his Imagine Breaker to rip her clothes off. Index comments how Hyouka seems to be the target of the magician, and leads to Index commenting that Touma won’t be getting Hyouka since she found her first this time. This sparks Mikoto’s jealousy; while Index is worrying about Hyouka, Mikoto asks her if it’s ok not to worry about Touma. Index replies it’s ok, because Touma always comes back; which prompts Mikoto to wonder on the nature of Touma and Index’s relationship. Sphinx then gets out of Index’s hands and starts to wonder off; Mikoto tells Index it’s ok to chase it as she’ll stay there in case the others come back. Index accepts her offer and chases Sphinx; Mikoto then notices the manhole cover shaking. Back underground Touma explains to Hyouka that she’s not the real target, but just an acceptable target since she was close to Index and happened to be there. Hyouka says that if that’s the case they should ask Anti-Skills to protect Index, but Touma states that  it’s impossible since Index isn’t a resident of the Academy. As Touma is about to chase after Sherry, Hyouka offers to come along; though Touma tells her not to since it’s dangerous, but Hyouka is ok with that since to fight a monster you need another monster to fight it. At this point Hyouka recounts to Touma how she’s not human and a monster, but Touma tells her she’s not since she experiences the same things as humans. Hyouka tells Touma though that it’s fine for her to be a monster if it means she can protect the people important to her, and with that she jumps down the hole to chase Sherry. After landing from the fall relatively unharmed Hyouka recounts her life and how her existance was very thin, then she met Index who acknowledged her existance and how she was able to experience so many things upon meeting her and because of that she wants to protect her.

As Index catches Sphinx, a golem emerges near the manhole near her and Index goes into her Index-Librorum-Prohibitorum mode.  She is able to dodge the golem’s attacks by intercepting the magic used to create the golem. Index states that while she cannot use magic, she can at least intercept magic on the golem by rewriting the magic commands (similarily to how you rewrite a program I imagine, so let’s think of Spell Intercepter as Index hacking someone’s magic). Index uses one of her safety pins as a medium for her Spell Intercept and manages to get the Golem to absorb it. Unfortuanately it doesn’t work and she’s knocked back by the golem’s attack’s shockwave. Things look grim as Index comments there’s been a change in the magic controlling the golem and is about to get hit by the golem.

Opinions:

Well this arc is getting dragged on longer than I would’ve hoped for. I understand this is the last arc and in theory it should last to the last episode of the first season; I guess I was just really hoping for a last “Mikoto episode” before the season ended. Oh well, least we got to see Mikoto and Index talking. It seems she’s getting closer to Touma since her questions with Index implies that she’s jealous of her. Love her jealous face by the way, well and her embaressed face. Is it because she’s a tsundere? She’s a tsundere right!?!?!?
