  1. http://r-s.sakura.ne.jp/w/n/ni_c13.jpg
  2. Volume 13 cover. Kamijou & Mikoto are running away from the “uhohoi” old man known as the High Priest.
  3. The novel was really only about those three characters, so I thought it was inevitable for those two to be on the cover. (What about the High Priest…?)

  6. Volume 14 cover. In a complete change from last volume, we get the “Double Right Hand Guys” which isn’t exactly the most desirable cover image for a light novel, but just like for Volume 13, I thought it had to be these two given the contents of the novel. Was I right?

  9. Kamisato Kakeru. A modification of the rejected rough I made for Sogiita Gunha quite a while back. (See the SS rough page.)
  10. I intentionally made his face a lot like Kamijou’s, but he looks more refined than Kamijou and looks like he would be more popular.
  11. The Index series has a lot of characters or illustrations with an “opposites” motif, but this “opposite” of the protagonist is actually a little taller than Kamijou-san. (Height: 171 cm)

  14. Patricia Birdway + Shoggoth. You’ll recognize her if you read SP, but she got a new design for this volume that was based on a poisonous rainforest animal.
  15. The leftmost one is the original design and the two on the right are a slightly modified design, but in a rare move for me, I insisted that “She needs to wear the down!” (as a method to bring “down” the exposure of her outfit).

  18. Leivinia Birdway + Cannibalization. She was originally not going to look any different from normal, but she too got a new design for this volume because it was decided that something should seem different about her in the opening color illustration.

  22. The three girls of the Kamisato Faction. The first designs were a little plain, so I added in more for the second designs. From the very beginning, their concept was to be “twisted in a galge-ish way”, so I intentionally left in some unbalanced elements like the unnaturally long hair and overly large flowers. In that way, Elza’s Tamamo-no-Mae appearance makes her the only one with a stable design.

  26. Kihara Yuiitsu & Kihara Noukan. Unlike the Kamisato girls, Yuiitsu-san’s concept was to be normal looking, so that’s what she is.
  27. I overlooked some previous opportunities for an illustration of Noukan-sensei because I was waiting for the most exciting place to first show him. But…
  28. My personal first candidate was the Shundou battle in Volume 11, but since a fully-armored dog vs. a killer whale in a tank would have been a strange illustration, I rejected the idea myself. I remember thinking it was not so much how hard the illustration would have been, but more that it was not really a good “character illustration” and Volume 11 was Shokuhou-san’s story anyway.

  31. Volume 13’s cover rough. Is the best part how they almost look lovey-dovey at first, but both of them are looking at different things?
  32.  
  33. http://r-s.sakura.ne.jp/w/n/ni_t14.jpg
  34. Volume 14’s cover rough. As an alternative to the double guy cover, there was a suggestion to force girls onto the cover by putting in his faction, but I firmly rejected the idea. Just like with New Testament 9 & 10’s covers, it would have been in poor taste to shove in some other character.
