Are you excited to know about A Certain Magical Index Season 4?
I am sure you are. To clear your mind from the boggling thoughts that are troubling you, continue reading it further.
As much as we love to watch our favourite shows and complete one season per night, we hate to wait for the upcoming seasons. Especially when the gap is of several years, imagine watching Season 1 of your favourite show in high school like Thunderbolt Fantasy or Yona of The Dawn. Watching Season 2 when you get your first job, while you are able to watch Season 3, when it’s time for you to change the diapers of your kids, that’s too much, right?
Well, this wasn’t the case with Season 1 and 2 of A Certain Magical Index, but something similar did happen in Season 3 as the gap was of 7 years! I watched Season 2 as a jobless graduate and had a work experience of 5 years at the time of Season 3, LOL. But I am not looking forward to waiting for another 7 years for Season 4.
Do you know why?
Because the possibilities are that it will launch soon.

STORYLINE: A Certain Magical Index
A Certain Magical Index Season 4 also known as Toaru Majutsu no Indekkusu is a Japanese action anime TV series. It is based on the famous light novel series of the same title “A Certain Magical Index”. Written by Kazuma Kamachi and illustrated by Kiyotaka Haimura, I must say it is one of those great anime series that we should watch during the pandemic!
The overall story of all 3 seasons so far follows the adventures of Tomo Kamijo who is residing in a scientifically superior city. He is a high school student with a special power in his right hand. After he meets Index, he gets great exposure to other psychic and magic users, sounds like our childhood fantasy so far, correct? He also meets a nun whose brain is implanted with 103,000+ magical abilities of Index Librorum Prohibitorum.
The index is highly fugitive, and other powerful magical organisations want to use her in a process that ends with her death. These organisations start going towards a direction where a war might happen. The index has to rely only on her friends Touma and Misaka since they have always protected her in the academy.
All this is just an overview of the A Certain Magical Index series, there are a lot more in coming seasons!
So when is Season 4 coming out? Let’s find out below.
The plot of A Certain Magical Index
All 3 seasons of A Certain Magical Index have revolved around the technically advanced academy. Several fans believe it is taken from the Wakanda city of Japan. Interestingly, the fictional Academy city is 3 decades ahead in terms of technology and is full of espers who have psychic abilities and are really powerful!
Among all the students of the academy who have abilities, Touma Kamijou who is also the protagonist so far doesn’t have any individual ability but interestingly he has an “Imagine Breaker ” ability to deflect the abilities of other espers. But he isn’t really interested in the academic world around him and in fact doesn’t really care about his own ability which is seen as super rare by others.
For his attitude, he is my favourite in the show from all 3 seasons.
When Touma Kamijou meets Index Lobrorum Prohibitorum, his world changes completely. She is being chased by an organisation consisting of humans as they want to hunt her down after she recalled all the forbidden grimoires. Touma finds out that she won’t be able to survive on her own for too long and he develops a feeling of responsibility towards her. He decides to protect her from the unknown dangers ahead.
The plot of A Certain Magical Index is stretched in Season 2 and 3 with the introduction of new characters but the ultimate theme remains the same as Season 1. But once the battle between Touma and the organisation starts to save Index, the heat turns high and eventually leads to such a legendary battle that might even destroy humanity!
Release Date:- Eager to know about it?
Since there isn’t any official information out yet, let’s find out the pattern of seasons and episodes released so far to reach a calculated conclusion!
The very first episode of the series premiered on October 5, 2008 and ended on March 19, 2009. And after completing a year nearly, Season 2 of our loved show “A Certain Magical Index” came out with a whopping 24 episodes! That’s a beautiful episode count for the passionate viewers.
It filled us again with magic from October 08, 2010 to April 1, 2011. Did you catch the pattern so far? I hate to say this but please put a break as the releasing and ending months remained the same but the gap wasn’t of 1 year this time. A Certain Magical Index: Season 3 (also known as A Certain Magical Index III) teased us for quite some time and was released on October 5, 2018 to April 5, 2019. And despite a saddening gap, Season 3 lived up to our expectations.
But here is the good news → The show is highly likely to be continued, the storyline isn’t completed yet and there is a war pending!
Fun fact: The original novel is packed with a whopping 22 volumes, another strong reason to wait for our beloved show.
Season 4 is expected to fall between 2021-2022, that’s our best guess after the current analysis. We will keep you updated, you just need to bookmark this link and come back in September for possible updates.
Do you feel relieved to know that you don’t have to wait much for A Certain Magical Index Season 4, I am sure you are. Being a huge fan of series like this, becomes tough for impatient beings like us, as it just becomes difficult for us to wait and do nothing about it.
