The Unified Story Timeline lists events in the Toaru Majutsu no Index universe in chronological order. This timeline tries to harmonize the events from all the mediums that tell the stories of the Toaru Majutsu no Index universe, so long as they are canon, things that happen in the story as it goes, things that have come to pass or mentioned in passing, and things that may. This bars video games, parodies, and audio dramas unless their timeframes can be determined. Discrepancies will surely abound, but this is the fate of a franchise that has spanned greatly in several mediums and in the hands of several people.

For the timeline exclusively for the anime, visit the Anime Timeline page.

    • Leivinia Birdway has members of the Kamijou Faction confront GREMLIN in Hawaii, in a gambit to strike the core of Academy City, and bring out GREMLIN out in the open at the same time.[95] Trident and GREMLIN join forces, under the control of Olay Blueshake and Saronia A. Irivika, to invade Hawaii as a starting point to turn the United States of America into a theocracy.
      • The private military company, Trident, manages to agree with the terms of their surrender, proposed by Roberto Katze, to the United States of America.
      • Kilauea erupts, sending volcanic ash into the atmosphere.
      • 27 Academy City Cooperative Institutions withdraw their cooperation with Academy City after the events of the invasion, and the subsequent discovery of Academy City agents (Touma and company) meddling in international affairs. Natural Selector, a tournament dedicated to finding a new global standard to replace the espers of Academy City, is announced shortly after. Baggage City is also purchased by the institutions.

November 13Edit

  • Baggage City Arc occurs.
    • The Natural Selector tournament is started by Science Guardian, formerly known as the 27 Cooperative Insitutions of Academy City, and is held in Baggage City amidst millions of spectators and countless competitors.[96]
      • A bloody supression by Academy City is inflicted upon the city, ending the tournament, and later, despite the combined efforts of Baggage City and GREMLIN, Science Guardian acquiesces to Academy City's demands.


Late NovemberEdit

  • Toaru Majutsu no Index: Shokuhou Misaki Figure Arc occurs. It concludes two days before Othinus obtains Gungnir.[103]
  • Magic God Othinus Arc occurs.
    • A secret meeting between various heads of state and leaders is held in New York to find an answer to the GREMLIN problem.
    • GREMLIN invades Tokyo
      • Due to the ineffectual handling of the situation by the Japanese goverment, the Anti-GREMLIN Alliance and Academy City separately deal with GREMLIN on their own.
    • Othinus completes Gungnir and recreates the world. The world undergoes an unknown number of phase shifts before she concedes the world to Touma and returns it back to normal.
    • A manhunt for Othinus and Kamijou Touma is conducted by several different parties (including GREMLIN) in the aftermath of Othinus returning the world back to normal, and Touma deciding to protect her. None of the parties successfully eliminate either Othinus and Touma.
      • The leaders in the international coalition later give a speech to their constituents urging them not to give in to the fear and hatred of Othinus. President Roberto Katze, in particular, broadcasts the footage of Touma's battle with Othinus in his attempts to stop her from killing herself during the speech.
    • Aleister Crowley visits a layer of the world where even Othinus' power couldn't reach and finds the Magic Gods stuck in there, then attacks them.
  • Mental Out Arc occurs.
    • Kihara Noukan completes the cleanup of those who become insubordinate to Aleister Crowley, now badly injured after his fight with the Magic Gods, during his long absence and returns full control of Academy City to him.[104]


December 1Edit

  • St. Germain Arc occurs.
    • St. Germain enters Academy City and traps people inside the Dianoid. The collective identity is later beaten by efforts of Kanou Shinka with the help of Kamijou Touma, Hamazura Shiage, and their respective group of friends, finally freeing the people trapped there.[105]
    • Magic Gods Nephthys, High Priest, and Niang-Niang deliberately weaken themselves to descend upon the world and enter Academy City to deal with Kamijou Touma. After meandering a bit during St. Germain's attack on the Dianoid, they are struck a blow by Aleister who exploits the spell they used to enter the world. Additionally, Magic God Zombie is killed.[106]

December 3Edit

  • The Magic God Invasion Arc occurs.
    • The High Priest approaches Kamijou Touma during Academy City's anti-crime orientation, requesting that he become the true Gremlin's scorer. A destructive chase through Academy City ensues with Touma escaping from the High Priest on an acrobike, together with Misaka Mikoto. The High Priest is eventually launched into space by a mass driver and attempts to return using the Arrowhead Comet. Kihara Noukan destroys the comet and kills the High Priest before it impacts Academy City.[107]
      • During the High Priest's rampage, a vault containing a liquid diamond is compromised, leading to a chase between Akikawa Mie, trying to protect the diamond and her parents, and a trio of university students hoping to steal the diamond.[107]
    • Members of the true Gremlin are 'exiled' by Kamisato Kakeru's World Rejecter, with only Nephthys managing to escape.[108]
  • The World Rejecter Arc occurs.
    • The night after the High Priest's rampage, Kamijou Touma and Kamisato Kakeru clash over the remaining Magic Gods and the Birdway sisters, at odds due to Patricia being infested with Sample Shoggoth and Leivinia turning to dangerous means to save her.[109]
    • After Sample Shoggoth is eliminated prematurely, Nephthys sacrifices herself to save Patricia Birdway. Kamisato Kakeru and Kamijou Touma then clash over the remaining Othinus, with World Rejecter gaining the upper hand over the Imagine Breaker but causing the other power within Touma to emerge and heavily wound Kakeru.[110][111]
    • Kihara Noukan fights with the wounded Kamisato Kakeru, but the Anti-Art Attachment is erased by the World Rejecter and he sustains fatal injuries. Unable to save him at present, Kihara Yuiitsu flash-freezes him in the hope that he could be saved in the future.[111]

December 4Edit

  • The Salome Arc begins.
    • Due to the damage to Touma's high school caused by the High Priest, he and his classmates are moved to another school. Kamisato Kakeru also transfers to this school.[112][113]
    • Salome arrives in Academy City,[112] approaching and attempting to provoke Hamazura Shiage and Misaka Mikoto, getting into a fight with the latter before being interrupted by Claire, whom she bisects not long afterwards.[113][114]
    • Kihara Yuiitsu investigates Kihara Noukan and the enemy's power which defeated him, with Kihara Enshuu's help.[115][116]

December 5Edit

  • Yuiitsu disguises herself as Keshouin Asuka in order to get close to Kakeru undetected and implement her revenge plan.[117]
  • Having noticed something wrong with Mikoto, Touma learns about Salome from Kakeru. They plan to lure her out, but Kakeru betrays Touma and attempts to kill him together with the Kamisato Faction.[118]
  • Having got into a fight with Accelerator, Salome lures him to the Kamisato Faction and then escapes with Touma. While searching for materials to repair Salome's body, they learn of his classmates' plan to use the incinerator to get rid of their stuff, suggested by Kakeru. That night, they secretly watch but intervene after learning from Akikawa Mie that Asuka has been replaced and might be trapped in the incinerator, only to find the incinerator empty and Kakeru doesn't know anything about it.[119]
  • Yuiitsu manages to take Kakeru by surprise and sever his right hand. Using a combination of Sample Shoggoth and an attenuated version of the St. Germain virus, she manages to steal World Rejecter. She then fights Kamijou Touma and Salome with Misaka Mikoto ending up in the fray. After accidentally landing in one of Noukan's weapon storages, Mikoto is forced to use the Anti-Art Attachment to save Touma from Yuiitsu. This contact is deemed a threat by Aleister, who has decided to leave his safe zone.[119][120][121]

December 6Edit

  • The Salome Arc concludes.
    • Touma meets Aogami on the way to school and learns that his classmates had come to their senses after the incident the previous night.[121]


  • It is unclear which year the series takes place in. There are some hints that it is in the first decades of the 21st century, as evidenced by 1700 years having passed since the rule of Constantine the Great in the 4th century and Aleister Crowley being said to have died more than 60 years ago in 1947. The global population is also said to be of 6 billions (and in later volumes, 6 or 7 billions), as was the case from 1999 to 2012, but the Catholic population is of 2 billion adherents and the British population of 90 millions (as opposed to 1.2 billion members and ≈ 60 million British in real life). Furthermore, the year has been stated to have the third Friday of March as March 15 and five Fridays in September, which should technically be impossible. Regardless, one should keep in mind that the Toaru Majutsu no Index universe is first and foremost a fictional universe, so it's expected to not always be comparable to ours.


  • A note on dates: This timeline is written according to the dates presented in the Toaru Majutsu no Index light novels and the Toaru Kagaku no Railgun manga. Regarding the Level Upper arc, the order of events differs between the manga and the anime. Since the anime changes certain events (removing crossovers with the Toaru Majutsu no Index light novels entirely), the manga order takes priority. However, the manga still acknowledges the existence of the anime-exclusive Big Spider and Poltergeist arcs, so they have also been included here.
