A Certain Scientific Accelerator is a spin-off from A Certain Magical Index. The series launched in ASCII Media Works’ Dengeki Daioh magazine in December 2013, and spans eight compiled volumes. Volume 9 is slated to hit stores on October 11.
Seven Seas currently holds the rights to the title, which they describe as:
Welcome to a world where mysticism and science collide, and supernatural powers are derived from either science or religion. At the heart of this world is Academy City, an advanced metropolis whose population is comprised mostly of students. The majority of students are enrolled in the city’s “Power Curriculum Program,” where they must learn to master their latent psychic powers.
