Kamijo is a student in Academy City, where people use science to develop supernatural abilities. The guy’s got a lot of heart – luckily for a young nun named Index. She’s on the run from a sorcery society that covets the astonishing 103,000 volumes of magical knowledge stored in her memory. When Index stumbles into Kamijo’s life, she find a faithful friend and protector, and while Kamijo’s easily the weakest kid in Academy City, he’s got something else going for him: the Imagine Breaker, an unexplainable power stored in his right hand that negates the powers of others. With scientists and sorcerers attacking from all sides, the Imagine Breaker will definitely come in handy – but it’s Kamijo’s loyalty to Index that will be his greatest weapon in the fight to keep her safe.A Certain Magical Index featuring Atsushi Abe and Yuka Iguchi has one or more episodes streaming with subscription on Hulu, streaming with subscription on Crunchyroll, free on Crunchyroll, and 6 others.

In order to get Tōma's assistance, Stiyl pretends to kidnap Index. While Tōma coincidentally runs into Orsola on the way to save Index, the Amakusas appear and abduct her via a hole in the ground. After determining that the Amakusa's goal is to use a special teleport magic to escape with Orsola before midnight, Tōma, Index, Stiyl and the Agnese Forces set up camp at the required location, where Tōma gets into a lot of awkward situations with the group's leader, Agnese Sanctis.

While escaping from some Amakusa warriors, Tōma manages to find Orsola and gives her a crucifix that Styil gave him earlier. The two are reunited with Stiyl and Index, who are facing against the leader of the Amakusas, Saiji Tatemiya. Working together, Tōma and Stiyl defeat Saiji and the rest of the Amakusas are captured by Agnese's battle nuns. However, the captured Saiji reveals to Tōma and Index that the Amakusas have never stolen the Liber AL vel Legis, as the real reason the Catholic Church wanted Orsola was to kill her to prevent the secrets of the grimoire from being abused. The Amakusas only got involved as Orsola sought them for protection but ran away as she didn't trust them. Troubled by this revelation, Tōma asks two of the Battle Nuns, Luccia and Angelene to see Orsola again but he accidentally angers Luccia who tries to kill him, Index and Saiji. However, she and Angelene are forced to retreat when Index uses spell interception on Angelene's magic and counters Luccia's attack.
