Finally after two seasons of A Certain Magical Index, and two seasons of A Certain Scientific Railgun (season 3 as well please) I have waited seven to eight years for this news. I am a happy boy. As an anime only, I understand that even if we look at the English translation from Yen Press; there are a lot of of material for the anime to adapt. Next up is Heavy Object season 2. Come on people it can be done.
I think the author has started a sequel series in Japan already, so we will not have to worry able material. I am hoping this season 3 will be a long series, maybe two cours. I think the ten year anniversary for this series is coming up soon, so it would be really nice if this is the case.
Dengeki Bunko editor Kazuma Miki had apologise to fan at an event in 2015 for the fact there is no season 3. I am really happy for him for getting this green-lit. This is because this is what fans has been asking for. I really want to know how many hoops the man had to jump through to make this happen. I think the man deserved an editor of the year award. I wonder how I can send him a thank you note for this.
I am also planning to buy the series since it is available on Bookwalker. I have a fear of buying anything online and getting it delivered to Vietnam, so as soon as I have some spending money or a job.
For those unfamiliar, A Certain Magical Index is set in a world where supernatural abilities are commonplace and follows Toma Kamijo who has the ability to negate the powers of others. However, when Toma meets a mysterious girl, Index, who’s on the run from the church, Toma discovers the true dangers of society’s super-powered state. The first season of the anime was released in 2008 while a second was released in 2010
