The website Amazon is listing the second compiled volume of Ryōsuke Asakura's adaptation of the Toaru Majutsu no Index: Endymion no Kiseki (A Certain Magical Index: The Miracle of Endymion) film as the final one.
Asakura began the manga in Square Enix's Shonen Gangan magazine in January, and the first compiled volume was released on Tuesday.
Kazuma Kamachi's original Toaru Majutsu no Index novel series already inspired other ongoing manga, including Chūya Kogino's main adaptation of the novels and Motoi Fuyukawa's A Certain Scientific Railgun spin-off manga which focuses on the character Mikoto Misaka. Seven Seas Entertainment publishes the Railgun manga in North America. Funimation licensed the television anime adaptations of both Index and Railgun.
In the movie's all-new story, the main characters Touma Kamijo and Index encounter a level 0 girl named Arisa just before the completion of the Academy City space elevator "Endymion." The Magicians are after Arisa, and they attack Academy City. A female leader named Shattoaura leads a unit from Academy City against the attack. Touma and Index learn from Stiyl that Arisa is key to a brewing war between the sides of Magic and Science.
The film was released on Blu-ray and DVD in Japan on Wednesday.
