At the same time, Vento of the Front makes her move.

Differences in AdaptationEdit
- In the anime, Soldier I. Krainikov's ultimatum to Academy City and proclamation of war is shown in a live news broadcast, in various locations with various people watching. The dogfight over the Sea of Japan on October 30th is omitted.
- Touma and Lessar's rescue of the villagers being transported in the Sleipnirs and their subsequent trip in one of the carriages is omitted, though several bits from the scenes are mixed into other scenes. The scenes involving Itsuwa getting a chill at the same time Lessar was trying to seduce Touma, the discussion between the Russian military officers in Moscow, and the tank crew on the battlefield are also omitted.
- With most of the scenes which caused Floris to bear a grudge against Touma having previously been omitted, Lessar's mentions continuing on from them are also omitted.
- In the novels, Mikoto was the one watching the video of the Academy City's declaration regarding Japan on her cellphone, while Kuroko was away on Judgment work. In the anime, Kuroko is with her in their room and is the one watching the video on a laptop at a desk. The actual missile interception is also excluded from the video.
- Lessar's question of the Gekota strap on Touma's phone is moved from when they were in the Russian facility to when they were at the Elizalina Alliance's border. Their entry into the country is also changed.
- In the novel, Fiamma's sword attack is said to be about 30 or 40 kilometers long and is referred to as capable of slicing mountains in two.
- Elizalina and Lessar's improvisation of spiritual items (specifically, elemental symbolic weapons, a blue cup for water from a piece of cellophane wrapped around a glass, and a red wand for fire from a bar magnet attached to a pole, respectively) during Fiamma's attack is omitted.
- When Fiamma appears inside Elizalina's base to attack, his pose exactly matches his one in the official key visual for the 2nd cour of Toaru Majutsu no Index III.
- The Russian store sign you can see during Hamazura's attempted robbery says магазин, which just means "Store".
