After her defeat against Hamazura she came to love Hamazura in a twisted manner.It must be hard to compare this to the novel. From that perspective I could totally see how this would be rough.
For me I'm coming at it from the opposite direction. I just want to have things going on I can understand, as a starting point. The big appeal of the first season of the anime was that, despite the convoluting setting, it delivered simple but powerful emotional moments. When it gets down to it, that's what I want from an Index anime. Like the moment right after Touma loses his memories. That was awesome.
Which has been one of the major frustrations with this season. They haven't been unable to deliver that. All the psudo-scientific religiosity in the world means absolutely nothing if it isn't in the service of telling a story and setting the stage for those big emotional moments.
And the character moments with Touma here are the first even semi-successful attempt this season has had, IMO. I'm guessing the Accelerator and Hamazura were supposed to provide those but frankly, as somebody without knowledge from the books, I felt they just weren't able to make it coherent enough.
Like I'm really interested in what your said before @Arjuna about Mugino being Yandere toward Hamazura. I had no hint of that. Until you said that I didn't have the slightest clue why she's fixated on him. Don't really understand why Accelerator was suddenly freaking out in last episode either.
She turned Yandere.
And this from Razorhead might help you
"While in the anime Worst was somehow angry at Accelerator saving her, this didn't happen in the novel. In fact she couldn't even stand up from the damage she took, but felt a "comfortable feeling" spreading through her as she finally went silent, unable to pick up on any negative emotions as she wasn't sure what just happened. But just as she was getting used to this feeling it was shattered by Accelerator’s mad cackling.
She was made to easily pick up negative emotions from the network, but what had happened was difficult for her to pick up. However, the reality was that Misaka Worst had survived a situation where she was supposed to have died no matter what. And it had happened by the hands of a third party.
She remained silent for a bit.
As she was created to take in only negative emotions, that silence was out of bewilderment but also somehow comfortable.
She heard an unpleasant noise.
It sounded like whatever it was she was finally bringing inside was shattering.
Worst speculates that even Accelerator had been feeling that way, but that her actions have caused Accelerator to break down mentally. And when this realisation dawns on her it terrifies her.
What Misaka Worst had been starting to hold inside a bit before may have not been wrong.
That same warm thing may have been flowing through Academy City’s #1 Level 5 as well.
However, it had been shattered.
She may have pulled some sort of trigger. As Misaka Worst finally began to realize that, she started to tremble uncontrollably."
