Toaru Majutsu no Index:Volume16 Afterword
To the readers who bought the books one by one, it’s been a while.
To the readers who managed to read through all 17 volumes at one go, we meet for the first time.
I’m Kamachi Kazuma.
Also in this afterword, I guess sooner or later, it’s more or less going to be my 20th time doing this soon. I added a bit of all the good things as if it was customary, and this time, it felt rather out of place.
The topic this time is about the ‘chosen ones’. One of the occult keywords is the term ‘Saints’. The ‘Divine Mother Worship’ is the underlying difference in foundation between this battle between Saint and Saint.
For the ‘Saint Destroyer’ spell that Itsuwa (and the rest of the Amakusa members) used, one has to go back to Volume 9 to understand the concept behind this. When the Saint Kanzaki suddenly returns to drastically change things as the female Supreme Pontiff-sama and Tatemiya acting as the strategist, they were able to win this battle.
This volume has a lot of information that relates to the core of this story. It'll be interesting to recollect the hints here. Where did I put the hints in this story, and where does the information overlap? Once you find that out, perhaps you'll grasp a small part of what will happen in the future.
Thank you as always to my in charge, Miki-san, and illustrator, Haimura-san. I really regret that there were a lot of unexpected things happening, and I sincerely thank you two very much.
And I’ll like to thank all the readers as well. As I continued to tumble back and forth behind the scenes, I thank you readers very much for bearing with me all the way till now.
And now, this volume ends here.
I hope you'll continue to read the next volume.
At this moment, let me sign off first.
It feels that Itsuwa's becoming less and less like an ordinary girl.
