A Certain Magical Index: The Old Testament Omnibus Edition Announced by Yen Press; 24 Volumes

Publisher Yen Press has announced that A Certain Magical Index: The Old Testament Omnibus Edition will be available for purchase in the near future. Details on pricing and release timing were not stated, but this package will contain all twenty-two main volumes of the original light novel series alongside two short story volumes.

A Certain Magical Index originated as a light novel series before expanding into several other media, such as video games and manga adaptations. In fact, entire spinoffs have been birthed from Magical Index, including the significantly more popular A Certain Scientific Railgun.

Regardless, the Magical Index light novel is still ongoing, as it’s in the midst of its third series, Genesis Testament. The three seasons of the anime have adapted the first light novel series, known as Old Testament. As of now, the second light novel series taking place right after the first, New Testament, has yet to receive an anime adaption.

While countless events and developments occur, A Certain Magical Index primarily follows protagonist Touma Kamijou, a high schooler residing in Academy City, a locale full of Espers. He is a Level 0, those whose Esper abilities are the lowest of the low.

However, Touma is different from the rest of the city since he seemingly has no latent Esper ability at all, instead possessing a mysterious power known as the Imagine Breaker in his right hand, which negates all supernatural phenomena. After meeting a young girl named Index, Touma ends up entangled in various plots involving the Science side and veiled Magic side of the world.

We’ll keep you updated regarding the availability of this Omnibus. Hopefully, official New Testament volume translations arrive in the near future.
