Toaru Majutsu no Index

A science fiction Light Novel taking place in a Tokyo that exceeds technology of the so called outside world. 

If you haven't heard of Toaru Majutsu no Index, Index for short, then let me congratulate you for being able to survive under a rock. Though if you haven't been living under a rock, then you must be an oblivious person. People on /a/ used to make endless amounts of Index / Railgun Generals, until they were forcibly removed from the board by mods and popular request.

But enough insults, what kind of page insults the reader on the first sentence. I think I may be doing this wrong.

This page will focus on monitoring my progress through this Light Novel. And by monitoring, I really mean it. This is a gigantic feat for a reason.

I have made it a goal to read / catch up on the novels before February 22nd. And judging by the current pace I am going, I will barely reach this goal.
You might be thinking "Today is January 10th, you have more than 40 days to read all this!"
That may be true, but you see... the series is...

22 Volumes
That is ALOT OF VOLUMES. Not to mention there are two specials sprinkled in there, side stories to read (Like the Railgun books [there are two of them]) and some other minor things.
I won't even get started on New Testament (on two volumes)

It's going to be a fun trip, I hope you wish me luck, because after I drill all these books into my head, I might be a very tired and aged person. To go from not reading any books for 5 years to SUDDENLY picking up a book series that is past 4000 pages long... I hope you get my point.

UPDATE 9/12/12
I failed to meet my goal... but now I have my Vita hacked, and supposedly the pdf reader works (it didn't for me...maybe I did something wrong). Let's try to start this back up.

UPDATE 3/31/13
Vita PSP emulation doesn't have enough RAM, so whenever I try to open some Index PDFs, it just hangs and crashes. Not much can be done. However I was able to get my hands onto a book reader... maybe now I can continue onto the scene where Touma punches a nun so hard she goes spinning.

UPDATE 9/2/13
YAY! I finally caught up with the series! I started reading Index by around the beginning of 2012. Interestingly enough, there were only 3 volumes of New Testament out back then. After practically a year and a half of reading with many many breaks in-between volumes, I have caught up with the releases and am now eager awaiting the release of Volume 8 in 8 days. However I would need to wait for translations anyway. Guess I'll get started on side stories.

The Toaru Majutsu no Index: New Testament

Volume # (pages)
Volume 1 (255)May 18, 2013 Hamazura and Accelerator team up to save the life of a little girl.
They are about to fail when SUDDENLY TOUMA FUCKING SHOWS UP WHAT
Volume 2 (150)May 18, 2013So many people have been to Touma's room... god damn. Also it's fucking amazing seeing Touma,
Accelerator and Hamazura to work together. Especially Accelerator. He can use magic now? 
 Volume 3 (233) Aug 19, 2013Now to take the whole gang to KAWAII HAWAII XDDDD. Oh President-san-sama~ 
 Volume 4 (268) Aug 21, 2013Now this had some amazing scenes play through my head. Russian Roulette with "live" video
streams. Favorite one was where a guy had his arms melded together and transformed into a
faucet and then when opened, all his blood poured out. Poor guy ;_; 
 Volume 5 (160) Aug 22, 2013 Finally, Touma is back to being the prime MC. And as usual he's back to being hospitalized.

(oops, all the hype was directed towards Toaru Jihanki no Fanfare) 
Volume 8 (?)Sep 15, 2013So Othinus didn't really need the help of anyone to become 100% success.
And then she ends the world on a...whim... But why though?
