New Testament Synopsis Taken from BakaTsuki:
The Third World War that final member of the Roman Catholic Church's secret organization God's Right Seat Fianma sparked off from Russia has been ended by the efforts of Kamijyo Touma. With that, he vanished. This is a world where Kamijyo Touma does not exist.
You Shall Be Missed
After the disappearance of Kamijou Touma, the spot of main protagonist was left open in the To Aru Majutsu universe. So then the next course of action was naturally...
Hamazura Shiage walks out with a determined look in his eyes. Clenching his right fist, he raises it up to eye level. And then suddenly, as if his life depended on it, he boldly declares,
"I'll shatter that illusion!"
"'Poor', MISAKA says as she holds up a sign that says 4.0"
"'Terrible', MISAKA says holding up a sign that says 3.5"
"'Average at best, MISAKA says defiantly holding up a sign that says 5.0"
As this happens, Takitsubo Rikou, observing Hamazura's performance from the sidelines, quietly makes her opinion known.
"Don't hurt his feelings...!"
He's Waited His Whole Life for This...
As the three MISAKA sisters scurried to prepare their next consultation, a white-haired boy walks in.
"What the hell is this? That shitty brat tells me to come here immediately, but..."
Pointing at the three clones, he yells.
"Is this supposed to be an interview? Fuck this! As if I'd really care who becomes the new main protagonist! Unless there are bodies flying, don't call me out, got it!"
"'If you do not wish to participate, you are free to go', MISAKA says conveying the obvious."
"Well... since I'm here, I might as well-"
"'Then go on, we're ready for your lines' MISAKA says tilting her head."
"W-Wait...I need to moment."
Everyday, In Front Of A Mirror...
"I'll destroy that illusion!"
Accelerator says, holding out his right hand.
The three MISAKA sisters huddled up into a group. After much debate, one on the sisters speaks out to Accelerator.
"'MISAKA thinks you've spent a lot of time practicing for this, have you not?' MISAKA asks with an almost pitying express-"
"I have not!"
To the surprise of the three MISAKA sisters, Kamijou Touma walks in next.
Glancing at one another, the three sister silently discussed the trouble with the current situation. One sister held up a 'thumbs-up' and another nodded her head in agreement.
"'Go on, but don't expect any preferential treatment' MISAKA says wagging her finger sternly."
"Uh, yeah, right..."
Don't Force It
"That screwed up illusion of yours... I'll kill it!"
Kamijou proudly holds up his Imagine Breaker and says his iconic line.
The three MISAKA sisters gather once again to briefly discuss. Disbanding, they raise their scores.
"'Adequate,' MISAKA says as she holds up a sign that says 5.0"
"'Meh,' MISAKA says holding up a sign that says 4.5"
"'Good, but it seems like you're trying too hard,' MISAKA says soundly while holding up a sign that says 6.0"
A Sad Future
Kamijou Touma was jobless. Well, technically he should be dead, but let's not fool ourselves about that.
From this moment on, he would not appear in any novels until the author green-lights his return. This could mean a major absence spanning at least one novelizations. At worst, he'd make an appearance at the very end of New Testament.
That said, what in the world would Kamijou Touma do until that time?
Standing up, Kamijou Touma made a declaration.
"I will...finish school!"
"And then after that I'll... go to a decent college!"
"And after that I'll... find a job with a moderately satisfying salary!"
It was then that the savior of the world fell into despair.
Just Give In
Kamijou Touma appears before Misaka Mikoto.
"Oh, so you've finally come to settle our little fight, huh?"
Misaka Mikoto seemed genuinely excited by this development; however...
"No. Actually, since I have some free time, I was wanting to ask if I could somehow appear more often in Railgun."
Apparently, this Kamijou Touma does not realize the shame of leeching off of other people's success.
"Hmm? Well, I'm not so heartless to leave you out in the cold, so..."
Misaka Mikoto pointed a finger towards the unlucky boy.
"Fight me and I'll consider it!"
"Are you even listening?"
"Come at me! I'm ready at any time!"
Mister...Tonkotsu, Was It?
Saten Ruiko and Uiharu Kazari were casually walking down a street when suddenly a group of thugs surrounded them.
"Eh? What's with this development?"
As Uiharu cried out in confusion, Kamijou Touma sprang into action and appeared before the two girls.
"Oi oi, you two go on ahead. I'll take care of this. After all, supporting characters have to support each other as well."
"Who are you?"
Once again, Kamijou Touma fell into despair.
Level Upper Does Not Enhance Your XXX
"Have you guys no shame?"
Kamijou Touma pointed towards Uiharu and proclaims.
"She is obviously in middle school!"
He then points at Saten.
"And this girl...is in middle school too!"
To the relief of Kamijou Touma, Saten Ruiko agreed with his proclamation.
"Yeah, that's right."
'Thank you so much for playing along!'
A Nice, Gentle Man
After things got taken care of, the three supporting characters chatted with one another.
"Ah, so you got replaced! Just like how characters in dramas get replaced because the actors who portray them turn out to be bad role-models!"
Kamijou Touma felt a sharp sting pierce through his chest.
"That seems a little..."
Saten seemed to notice the harshness of Uiharu's words.
"It makes me wonder though. What kind of person could replace you?"
"I'd imagine it'd have to be someone really nice and gentle."
Meanwhile, Accelerator was having fun.
"I'll destroy that illusion! In fact, I'll destroy everything! HAHAHAHA!"
As Accelerator walks down a one-way street, a missle flies by his head and crashes into a nearby building.
Helicopters and tanks start gathering around Accelerator as he approaches.
Accelerator smiles. There was going to be blood.
"Such misfortune... I love it."
Spoilers! At Your Own Discretion!
Kamijou Touma was sitting patiently. There was no doubt in his mind that he would have a triumphant return. Though, until that time, he would have to wait.
Fans of the series would have to cope with a temporary hero for now, but Kamijou Touma was certain that whoever would fill his shoes, he would do a good job of it.
At this time, New Testament appeared before Kamijou Touma.
Flipping to the end of the novel, tears suddenly started to stream down his face.
