Yes, you want to read this description. Don’t hide your eyes.
To Aru Majutsu no Index is a “light novel” series that’s coming out as an anime this fall. The concept?
“Set in a city of scientifically advanced superhuman students, but in a world where magic is also real. Toma Kamijo’s right hand, the Imagine Breaker, will negate all magic, psychic, or divine powers, but not his own bad luck. One day he finds a young girl hanging on his balcony railing. She turns out to be a nun from the Church of England, and her mind has been implanted with the Index Librorum Prohibitorum – which in this world is all the magical texts the Church has removed from circulation.”
It gets weirder. This Church of England — in which nuns apparently dress like Russian Orthodox folks or something — is also known as “The Church of the Necessary Evil”.
Oh, and Aleister Crowley appears. Except that in this alternate universe, he dumped the magic/religion gig to go be a mad scientist instead.
No, I have no idea whether this anime will be any good, or whether the manga is. But these new heights of bizarro-religion must be noted.
