Tachikawa/Academy City Comparison

Viewers of different anime will probably know that quite a few of the locales and settings used are actually based on their real world counterparts.

So bearing that in mind, we thought we’d take a look at the Toaru Majutsu no Index series and the setting for the show, Academy City. The real world location for this is actually Tachikawa, one of Tokyo’s upmarket and very modern business district.

Have a look at the images below, the resemblance between anime world, real world and the level of detail that they’ve included is astounding.
