Here's some news I expected to hear somewhat earlier: New anime set in the absurd world of A Certain Magical Index and A Certain Scientific Railgun are on their way. Index is getting a new movie treatment, titled A Certain Magical Index: The Miracle of Endymion. The story's a new spin-off, but was written by original author Kazuma Kamachi.
Railgun, on the other hand, is getting the longer end of the stick, with a new full-length TV series planned. They're doing pretty well for a spin-off, I have to say, but then again I imagine Mikoto "Biribiri" Misaka and her pals are more primed for commercial success than the main character and his straightforward approach to problem-solving.
More details on the new Railgun series will be released at the end of the week, but there's a new trailer for the Index movie embedded below, in glorious shakycam.
I'm interested, though mostly out of curiosity. According to various wikis there's a lot of material left to cover in Index from where the last season ended, and I'm wondering if the public's interest will hold out long enough for all of it to be animated.
