Toaru Majutsu no Index:Volume12 Afterword
To those who have been buying each volume one at a time: welcome back.
To those who bought all 12 volumes at once: welcome.
This is Kamachi Kazuma.
This is (supposedly) a series where comedy and battles cross paths, but this volume was focused on the comedy. I feel it was nice and heartwarming through and through. I came back to Misaka Mikoto’s punishment game that wasn’t touched on in Volume 11. Sometimes this kind of atmosphere that lacks any real conflict is nice.
The theme this time was the changing of clothes.
There is the literal example of the characters changing from their summer uniforms into their winter uniforms, but you could also say the overall flow of the series itself is “changing its clothes” in various places with the appearance of a certain character (or rather, group).
Since this occurred mostly within Academy City, it mostly became a science side story. So…well, that white boy is the same as always. I think he will be appearing more and more from now on.
I give my thanks to my illustrator Haimura-san and my editor Miki-san. This volume came with the annoyance of the characters changing their clothes, so I am truly thankful they stuck with me.
And I give my thanks to the readers. It is wholly thanks to all of you that I am even writing this afterword.
Now it is time to close the pages for now while praying that the pages of the next book will be opened.
And I lay my pen down for now.
Th-the punishment isn’t over yet!
