Index – The Movie – Giveaway: Can Miracles and Science Get Along?

keyvisual_03.psdWe’re counting down the days to the Blu-ray/DVD release of A Certain Magical Index  The Movie – The Miracle of Endymion (you can buy it now!) and to celebrate this new feature film, we’ve got a contest to give away some great Index merchandise! Read below to see how you can win.

 

We’ve seen a lot of characters in the Raildex franchise who hate on science and all it stands for, but the Index Movie mixes it up a bit. This movie features a new character, the cool beauty Shutaura, who doesn’t believe in miracles and hates the very idea of them, due to some past trauma surrounding a spaceplane crash event known as The Miracle of the Eighty-Eight. (We won’t spoil any of the plot, so watch the movie to see what happens!) In a techno-metropolis like Academy City, the idea of a miracle seems a little out of place, after all.

 

 

So we’re asking you to answer a question: Is the idea of a miracle incompatible with science? 

 

We’ve asked your opinions on magic vs science before, but we’re curious what you think about Index Movie’s keyword “miracle.” Is something as unscientific-sounding as a miracle utterly at odds with our modern world? Does the existence and development of life and the universe, in the face of the laws of entropy, qualify as miraculous? Let us know what you think.
*Remember! Please remain respectful of other opinions and viewpoints. We’re all here to have a healthy, happy discussion! 

 

Here are three ways you can enter:
  • Respond to this blog entry with your answer
  • Post your answer on the official Facebook thread (Click here!)
  • Tweet your question on Twitter with the hashtag #IndexMovie

 

One winner will receive a huge A Certain Magical Index prize pack full of merch, including:
  • Imagine Breaker T-shirt (medium)
  • Index iPhone 5 case
  • A Certain Magical Index lunchbox
  • A Certain Magical Index pillow
  • A Certain Magical Index binder
  • A Certain Magical Index large notebook
  • Kaori Kanzaki and Index stickers
  • Toma cell phone charm
  • Index and Toma magnet
  • A Certain Magical Index postcard

synopsis:
A series of increasingly strange events have been reported at Uchihama Academy’s soon-to-be-replaced aging school building. When the student council grows concerned about the spectral encounters, puzzling sleep disorders, and bizarre mishaps, they enlist the aid of the Astronomy Club to crack the case before it’s too late. One evening after school, club member Sou Akiyama is rocked by a sudden earthquake – and an encounter with a beautiful and mysterious naked girl who appears to know him even though he has no recollection of ever meeting her. The next day, the very same girl arrives at his school as a transfer student who’s interested in joining the Astronomy Club. In the blink of an eye, Sou’s fate – along with the fates of all the girls in his club – begin to change in very dramatic and mysterious ways.

series synopsis:

 

The King’s close advisor implemented a large-scale witch-hunt. The tragic victims of this hunt were not witches, however, but Makai Knights and Makai Priests. One Makai Priestess gave birth to a child while being burned at the stake. That child carried the bloodlines of the Golden Knight. Although he was saved by his father, a Makai Knight himself, the newborn, León Luís, suffered greatly from the unjust death of his mother. And so he vowed to learn the ways of a Makai Knight from his father, Germán Luís, and use his training to seek revenge. During his battles against the demons known as “Horrors,” León must gradually approach reality and accept the truth.

 

Meanwhile, the powerful former adviser to the King, Mendoza, banished Prince Alfonso and his mother while the king was bedridden. Eager to reclaim his kingdom and save his people, Alfonso embarks on a quest to find the legendary Knight – but destiny holds a twist of fate in store for him.

 

Together, León and Alfonso begin long and difficult journey filled with many hardships.
