A Certain Magical Index is originally a novel series with a lot of volumes and content.
With the story being about magic, religion, science, and the supernatural, there are many comparable
Here’s a list of
1. Sunday Without God
Sunday Without God, like A Certain Magical Index, is an
The plot is about Ai Aston, a girl who’s called a grave digger. In this world, God abandoned it on Sunday, and now everything has ben thrown into chaos.
People can no longer die, among other strange things that play out from the very beginning of the
You won’t get as much action in this series, but you’ll enjoy how unique and different it is to the average
It’s actually made by Madhouse studios!
Shakugan No Shana
In this series you have two main characters as well: Yuji Sakai, a human, and Shana, a flame haze who targets demons.
They both coincidentally end up working together, fighting together, getting stronger together, with some romance that comes into play.
The world is interesting and full of a divers set of characters, supernatural elements, and mysteries just like Index.
As far as
It has 3 seasons and some movies, but no new material as of 2021.
3. A Certain Scientific Railgun
Naturally, the Railgun series is a mirror to the Index series. Index focuses on Touma and Index, while Railgun focuses on Mikoto Misaka.
Season 2 is where it really starts to become a dark
Railgun is an unmatched series if you’re looking for a female driven plot, a female lead, and one who’s written well.
This isn’t a Shounen, but it’s similar enough and is a good
Rokudenashi is about Glenn Radars, a substitute teacher for the Alzano Imperial Magic Academy.
He’s lazy, unmotivated, takes everything as a joke and is sarcastic as F. Or at least that’s how others see him on the surface.
In some ways he’s similar to Touma, but more so by design. And the
5. Strike The Blood
An Ecchi series, Strike The Blood is another one adapted from light novels. The main lead is female, and she fights vampires.
With the obvious fan service, harem, and Ecchi elements, on top of the vampire and supernatural,
That said, there’s crossover similarities regardless and the franchise has a lot of content.
6. Problem Children Are Coming From Another World, Aren’t They?
Problem Children, a typical Isekai series as far as the long titles that are unnecessary. But once you get into it, it’s a magic series with a familiar set up.
Izayoi is the main MC who’s OP like Saitama from One Punch Man. But a little too OP if you ask me personally.
Not the greatest supernatural series, but it’s worth talking about.
7. Guilty Crown
Guilty Crown has to be one of the first 25
On one hand the world shares similarities to Index with its darker elements, and mysterious characters you’re trying to figure out.
This is also true when comparing the MC’S, but the MC in Guilty Crown makes some changes that border on the extreme side of things.
I won’t say more to avoid spoilers, but it’s worth mentioning here.
8. Ryuugajou Nanana
Ryuugajou Nanana is about a girl called Nanana, and her treasures she collected while she was alive. They’re all hidden in dungeons and labyrinths.
Juuzo, the MC lives in a flat where Nanana still exists as a ghost who’s tied to the room and hasn’t moved on yet.

Dual protagonists, plenty of mystery, some solid action scenes here and there, and a good portion of comedy that doesn’t try too hard.
9. Fate Stay Night
Fate Stay Night is about fighters who go to war for the sake of a personal wish. The fighters are chosen at random, which is what makes it so savage.
Shirou Emiya is almost a mirror image of Kamijou Touma from Index, with exceptions that make them different enough but similar.
Shirou does what he feels is right, even if it seems idealistic, and Touma is similar in this way.
The world of FATE can be confusing because of how much material there is, and how it doesn’t necessarily follow a seasonal pattern.
Start off with either Fate Stay Night or Fate Zero, than watch the other (if you wanna go that far).
After that, try Fate Apocrypha then Fate Grand Order.
