The newest issue of Dengeki Bunko Magazine revealed that A Certain Magical Index Season 3 will debut this fall. It has been six years since the last A Certain Magical Index episode aired.
Dengeki Bunko Magazine confirmed that the anime’s previous staff and cast will return for the project. The main staff features director Hiroshi Nishikori (Azumanga Daioh / Trinity Seven), screenwriter Hiroyuki Yoshino (Guilty Crown / Izetta: The Last Witch), and character designer Yuichi Tanaka (Last Exile / Oreigaru Season 2). Studio J.C. Staff will produce the animation.
The anime’s main voice cast includes Atsushi Abe as Touma Kamijou, Yuka Iguchi as Index, Rina Satou as Mikoto Misaka, Nobuhiko Okamoto as Accelerator, and Satoshi Hino as Shiage Hamazura.
A Certain Magical Index has been a hit since Kazuma Kamachi debuted the light novel in 2004. The series blends science-fiction and fantasy elements to create a world where science users (Espers) and magic users (Magician) fight for control of the world. Touma is born with a strange ability that can negate any supernatural powers at the cost of his luck. While not many people view his skill as important, it comes in use after he meets Index, a nun who is on the run after memorizing a set of forbidden grimoires.
Kamachi is currently writing a sequel series called New Testament: A Certain Magical Index, which has 19 volumes.
