Question for any of you Index/Railgun fans out there.

At the end of A Certain Magical Index I Episode 18 the "Replica" Sorcerer (the one with the Obsidian Blade) asks Touma to make sure he protects Misaka. When Touma answers, we can only see his lips moving (no sound) and then he smiles.

Misaka is listening from behind one of the iron beams of course. Normally in Anime it is fairly clear to me what these moments signify, but in this case, both the Sorcerer's and Misaka's response are (in my opinion) ambiguous.

Anyone care to wager what he said?

  • I believe you're referring to Etzali. This happens in chapter 2 of Vol. 5 of the light novel. Touma respond positively to his request, which is overhead by Mikoto.

  • Yes, it is Etzali (I haven't read the light novels, but have read a general synopsis). Is this same scene in the Manga as well? Jan 14 '15 at 20:15

“I have promised to protect Mikoto and her around.”

When Touma helped Kuroko, he said so, in Volume 8 of the original novel. And perhaps in Volume 11 of the manga.


enter image description here
Manga volume 11, chapter 64, page 15

The full quote was:

"That’s right, it's a promise. This promise is to protect Misaka Mikoto and the world around her. This is my agreement with a certain nameless person who fell in love with her so quickly."

He explains this to Shirai Kuroko regarding his promise with Etzali from Toaru Majutsu no Index Light Novel Volume 08.
