Publisher's Summary

In the balcony of my room, a snow-white nun suddenly falls from the sky.

"That's impossible..."

Kamijou Touma mutters, and the girl that looks like a nun had this to say: "I had escaped from the world of magic and came here."

This is the place where people recognize "supernatural powers" as an "ordinary science"... the anti-occult Academy City.

Touma is soon accompanied by this mysterious girl named Index when a real magician suddenly appears from behind them!

Thus presenting this anticipated school action story of a newcomer!

A certain unlikely hero…

Touma Kamijou has the worst luck imaginable… Sure he’s a citizen of Academy City, a scientific marvel of the modern world where superhuman abilities are artificially cultivated and commonplace, but when it comes to paranormal talent, Kamijou’s been classified a Level Zero-a loser, basically. Oh, he does have one trick up his sleeve (literally), but even that’s more trouble than it’s worth.

When Kamijou encounters a delusional young girl convinced she’s a nun and raving about being chased by evil sorcerers, he’s eager to send her on her way and get back to failing his studies. Fate, it would seem though, has other ideas, and he suddenly finds himself caught up in a supernatural intrigue with a girl named “Index” at the center!

Science and magic collide in this first volume of one of the most popular light novel series ever penned!

Publiée dès 2004 dans le magazine Dengeki Bunko de l'éditeur ASCII Media Works, A certain magical Index est un véritable phénomène qui a dépassé les 16 millions d'exemplaires en circulation au Japon et qui continue de truster le TOP des meilleures ventes de light novels à chaque nouvelle parution.

Dans la Cité Académique, ville étudiante où science et magie s'entremêlent, le malchanceux Tôma Kamijô possède un don bien particulier.

Alors que les étudiants disposent de pouvoirs plus incroyables les uns que les autres, la mystérieuse capacité de Tôma lui permet d'annuler n'importe quel phénomène paranormal au prix de sa propre chance. Résigné à vivre sous une mauvaise étoile toute sa vie, son infortune provoque sa rencontre avec la jeune Index. Véritable encyclopédie sur patte, la nonne aurait mémorisé 103 000 grimoires au service de l'Église. Embarqué dans une aventure phénoménale, Tôma se retrouve propulsé malgré lui au-devant de la scène des plus grands complots où science et magie s'affrontent dans une lutte sans merci pour la suprématie du monde.


  • This first volume was first released on April 10th 2004, one hundred years to the date at the end of the period (8-10th April 1904) when Aleister Crowley allegedly received the contents of what would become the Book of the Law from Aiwass.[8]
