Kakine is a Level 5 esper, ranked as the n.2 of Gakuen Toushi.
His ability is called Dark Matter and it is awesome. He can create materia that doesn't exist in the world and menage it to create what he wants. It's not a mistake saying that he has a power similar to the one of God, but he has his limits.
He's easy to lose control of himself and of his power because of his "schizofrenic" personality, and this is the reason why he always try to solve situations and problem without fighting. But when he understands that someone could joke with him, he's ready to kick him/her with no mercy.
His power is considered one of the most interesting and difficult ones to understand and study, this is the reason why when Accelerator defeates him, ripping his body part by part, his brain is divided in three parts, saved and studied by an organization called Dark Legacy, the same one that saves Mugino Shizuri from death (in NT4 we find that it's an organization of the Kihara Family).
With the development of the story is revealed that Kakine is able to control his Dark Matter even as a part of brain, without a body. In To Aru Majutsu no Index New Testament Vol.4, a woman and a researcher, Kihara Yuuitsu, adfirms that after some try and sacrifices (litterally... people sacrified to let his Dark Matter to evol, like Kihara Byouri), now he's able to create a new body.
To describe him, I have a lot of things to say~
As first thing, he doesn't face Accelerator to become the n.1, he's not interested in his position. The reason is that he need to conquer the right to meet Aleister and to ask him something... that we can't know (for the moment).
It's specified that Kakine's reasons are valid, and he tought that a fight against Accelerator could be his only way anc chance to be heard. To reach his goal, he asks the help of the Girl in Dress, another member of SCHOOL, but she refuses, sure that against the n.1 she could be dead.
Kakine knows it very well with his mind, but he believed in a positive answer in his heart. So, without a help, he tries to find the most important thing for Accelerator, Last Order, in order to use her to beat him.
He finds Uiharu in his way, and since she refuses to give him any kind of informations about the little one, Kakine kicks her (aaaah, I love that moment ). It's only thanks to Accelerator's apparition if (unluckily) Uiharu is safe from death.
But, yes, finally Kakine got his goal, and with all himself tries to face his opponent. The battle is cruel, and Kakine uses all the way he can to hurt his opponent, even Yomikawa, that was only about saving him from Accelerator's fury.
That is the moment in which Kakine loses all himself, becoming "a brain in a fridge" that remain in it for a long time until the moment in which his Dark Matter finally he's almost ready to give him a new body.
Kakine's reason are unknown and we can't understand them, but we can say for sure that he's not the kind of person that kicks someone just for fun. He's a crazy, but not totally evil, I think we can say he's desperated and totally deluded by life.
Kakine hates kids and people that believes in good feelings and happiness, and surely that's because he had a life similar to the one of Accelerator, rich of sadness... that made him evil and cinic, nihilist too.
But he's not totally evil, because he saves Kinuhata's life. And he leaves to escape hamazura and Takitsubo, that was about dying because of the use of her Body Crystal.
And it's not over... because he esxplains to Hamazura what Body Crystal is, so he becomes able to save his Takitsubo and escape with her.
About his appearance... eh, he's attractive. Handosome and smart, his face is always covered by an arrogant smile that at the first sight he looks like an angel. Knowing him, he reveals himself as a crazy, choleric and disturbated person.
Haimura-sensei said that when he drew Kakine, he wanted to create someone that seemed a combination of a bishounen from a host club, a rookie and a yakuza. Also, he wanted to give him a vulgar style to dress, but I adore Kakine's clothes~
Another thing that I have to say is that he's awesome working with mechanical technology and we can see this peculiarity in his Tweezer, the glove that he stolen and modified, creating a deadly and useful weapon to fight and investigate.
Also, In the Epilogue of New Testament VOlume 5, KAKINE IS FINALLY BACK!!
Kihara Yuuitsu decided to release him, saying that he's free to freak out and destroying everything, because this is what all the Kihara family wants.
A strange and dark Frenda appears in front of Mugino, could it be made of Dark Matter? It could be that as first thing, Kakine decided to take revenge against ITEM?
TO ARU MAJUTSU NO INDEX
NEW TESTAMENT VOL.6
As first thing... All the things I'm going to write are my personal thoughts about the spoilers I read on 2chan today, December 28th. Too early, eh? If only they would be good, I'd rolled on the floor full of happiness, but unluckily.................. it's not like that.
Please, notice that these are MY THOUGHTS about what I read on 2chan, nothing is official, nothing has been released yet... so we need to wait until January 10th to confirm if this is fake or not. So... here I go with my opinions.
It seems that Kakine is back, but his body is splitted in more parts, in bettles................... eh, I have no idea if this is true or not, but (as everyone, I think) I'm not happy.
As first thing, after 15th novel... he lost his body and his brain was close in a refregerate, after it, he was a cocoon... and now.......... a beetle? .....................................................It seems like his real ego and consciusness are in that beetle 05, and Accelerator kills the white, evil Kakine made of Dark Matter helped by beetle 05, but before the death of that Kakine, beetle 05 transfes Kakine's consciusness into itself. That beetle has a good personality, totally opposite than the one of Kakine, and he protects Last Order and Fremea.
Furthermore, it seems that Othinus choose to use Kakine's organs to complete Gugnir... mah.
If I think that after ALL THIS TIME... after all our hopes, now hisreturn is like a beetle.................. bah. I really want to think that there's OTHER for him in future, and even if these spoilers are real, I want to believe that Kakine's existence won't be ended like that. He's a wonderful character with a wonderful charaterization, one of the best of the series. And he's my favorite one, there's no another character I love more than him... and I want to know his reasons, he's not the evil one that everyone thinks he is... I'm sure.
...I don't know what can I say more than this. Just wait for the novel to put ours minds at ease.
