Square Enix has announced that their ongoing free-to-play mobile game A Certain Magical Index: Imaginary Fest will have a collaboration with the popular light novel and anime series Overlord.
The members of the dark side Academy City organization ITEM are seen alongside notable Overlord characters, dressed in attire fitting their setting.
The fourth-ranked Level Five of Academy City, Shizuri Mugino, also known as Meltdowner, can be seen as the leader of ITEM. Another core member is Rikou Takitsubo, who is able to track other Espers via her ability, AIM Stalker. The other two members are Frenda Seivelun and Saiai Kinuhata, who use explosives and the Offense Armor ability, respectively.
Shiage Hamazura joins ITEM in the later parts of A Certain Magical Index Old Testament, where they become an integral focus for a while. Moreover, A Scientific Railgun prominently focuses on ITEM, especially Frenda.
This new event will begin after maintenance on November 1, 2023, at 16:00 Japan Standard Time.

Despite being a spinoff of the franchise’s origin point and still ongoing light novel series, A Certain Magical Index, A Certain Scientific Railgun is immeasurably more beloved. Its anime adaption blew up, and its three seasons have been met with generally favorable acclaim, unlike Index and Accelerator.
This series follows Mikoto Misaka, the third-ranked Level 5 Esper of Academy City, alongside her close friends, Shirai Kuroko, Saten Ruiko, and Uiharu Kazari. The group finds themselves dealing with several issues plaguing the world’s Science side, as its title suggests.

Chronologically speaking, the first season of Railgun occurs before the first season of Index, leading to intriguing encounters with that entry’s primary protagonist, Touma Kamijou, if one is aware of what particular plight he faces.
The second season of Railgun runs roughly parallel to Index’s first season, with a certain arc even being told from two differing perspectives. Lastly, the third and most recent season, Railgun T, takes place somewhat parallel to Index’s second season, also depicting an Index arc from a new side.
