Thoughts/Review:

Heh! The first skit with Index-tan on the railing made me think, “Did I screw up and start watching the first episode again?  However, when she dodged the bird and started taunting it in celebration, I laughed out loud, as I continued to do when the cat snagged her. Unexpected moments are always the funniest.

I’m guessing the person in black with the pink hair was Louise Françoise Le Blanc de La Vallière from The Familiar of Zero series, who is voiced by Kugimiya-san, whom for some reason I keep thinking is Index’s seiyuu. ^_^;;; I think that may be because the various cameo appearances of characters are all by Kugimiya-san’s seiyuu — Taiga (Toradora!), Shana-tan (Shakugan no Shana/Shakugan no Shana-tan), and now, apparently Louise. ^_^;;;

The other skits were amusing, but nothing really funny.  I do get a kick out of the times when the seiyuu drop out of character and begin speaking as normal, whereby something in real life is discussed.

The skit where Mikoto and the sister clones start by saying the main series title, Toaru Majutsu no Index, and then with each one speaking, slightly modifies it so that it sound similar, but actually says something else, would have been more humorous to me were I a lot more fluent in Japanese.

The interludes, featuring Himegami getting cut off, weren’t funny to me at all.

Still, I do enjoy these Index-tan parody pieces, even if they don’t have me laughing out loud.
