It is somewhat hard to measure the exact levels of blood and violence... but both have lots. In Railgun S, it is science gone wrong and in Index II it is religious fundamentalism that causes the violence.
|The brunette girl's hair shine shows his eye line perfectly.|
There are religious characters and factions that are not fundamentalists, and they are shown in a positive light. So Index II is trying to contrast the two types of faith. The conflicts between these groups, and Academy City, is the main story of Index II.
Of course this would not be a Toaru series without comedy. There is a good amount of comedy mixed among the very serious plot.

If you are a fan of the Toaru stories, this is a good addition to the series. Sadly it ends leaving you wanting the next series... really wanting it. It is a rather massive cliff hanger of an ending. Oh, and yes, I do know that Index II come in two parts in the US, I am reviewing it as if it was only the one series it is.
Next up, the movie.
|Like everything in Toaru, you get a mix of Railgun and Index.|

The story has some good twists and turns in it, and we get to go into space for the second time in the Toaru series. A few new characters are introduced, but not so many that we get bogged down.
This feels like it falls just a little before the end of Index II, but I was reading somewhere that the game this is based on is actually supposed to take place sometime before the Daihasei Festival, because Kuroko is still in a wheel chair... but I thought she ended up in a wheel chair twice, at least.
Even if it cannot be easily placed on the confusing timeline of Toaru, it is still a good watch.
