When science and sorcery clash, the result is explosive in this sequel to A Certain Magical Index from the studio that brought you Shakugan no Shana!
The Book of the Law—an encoded grimoire containing catastrophic magic—has been stolen, so naturally Kamijo, Index, and a few familiar faces join in the crusade to protect the one nun who can decipher the powerful text. But as the group battles church sects and holy assassins, they realize that discovering who their true enemy is may be more difficult than saving the sister. Meanwhile, an organization known as the Science Society resurrects an esper-producing program, a school festival brings out the competition—and drama—in the student population, and a mysterious figure negotiates the purchase of a sacred relic that could threaten the future of Academy City.
We’ll be premiering the English dub of A Certain Magical Index II at Otakon next weekend, so if you’re in town be sure to attend! Keep an eye on the Otakon website for scheduling information.
We organized a huge Dragon Ball Z fan gathering for the Good Morning Texas segment on WFAA. Hosts interviewed voice actors Christopher Sabat and Jason Douglas about Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Gods, opening in theaters on August 5th. Take a look below at the interview.
In A Certain Scientific Railgun S, Accelerator is the overpowered and deadly antagonist that our heroine Misaka tries to stop from killing her tens of thousands of clones, all created from a dark scientific experiment. His ridiculously overpowered abilities (featured in our previous scientific writeup, A Certain Scientific Analysis S) and sinister cackle are so iconic that they’ve even spawned an internet meme—Accelerator’s Whisper, an image macro based on his initial introduction.
In honor of the release of Railgun S Part 2, we’re running a caption contest for this famous scene! One grand prize winner and four runners up will receive a prize pack of Railgun merchandise!
Here are shots of the scene, with the original dialogue:
That’s a pretty creepy and tense scene! But we like to think that the gravity also kind of lends itself to some great parodies. Here are some we loved from around the Internet:

Flower Mound, TX – July 24, 2014 – Giant Ape Media announced today that it has extended the Blu-ray & DVD, DTO/DTR/EST, (and via digital carriers) PPV and VOD rights to the hit series, Lost Girl. The series is currently in production for season 5.
When we last saw the supernatural seductress Bo (Anna Silk: Being Erica; Billable Hours), she and her allies had been caught up in a fierce battle for the fate of the world. Her mysterious, long-absent father, turns his daughter into the Dark Queen in his ploy to escape from hell. Bo’s allies—both Fae and human—manage to fight back his army of undead revenants, but only at the great loss of one of their own.
Lost Girl was developed by Prodigy Pictures, in association with Shaw Media and Showcase. Executive producers are Jay Firestone, Vanessa Piazza, and Michael Grassi.

Last month we asked fans to submit questions for Ping Pong – The Animation director Masaaki Yuasa. We sent over a few of our favorites and director Yuasa took time out of his incredibly busy schedule to answer them. Take a look below!
Sylverstone14 asked: “Which of the characters resonate with you the most, and why? (For me, I’d say Smile because of his demeanor.)”
Y) That’s constantly changed over the last 18 years. But it’s chiefly Akuma, Dragon, and Egami.
LiuwdJelly asked: “What made you decide to use split-screen reaction shots? What was the hardest part of adapting the manga’s visuals?”
Y) The medium of manga has its own expression of frames (such as how you can compare each frame to the one that came before it, and how multiple frames can make up one overall picture), and I wanted to try my hand at doing that in the anime medium. Also, for this particular show I wanted to use art from the original manga while preserving the exact same meaning it had there. In manga, you can switch angles whenever you want, so there were many cases where even if I’d wanted to use that material as-is, it didn’t follow the laws of video.
