Eh she didn't run away from the church. She is loyal to the church. Also they are always watching her. They could retrieve her anytime but choose not to.

Give it till ep 5 or 7 when the action kicks in, even blach and anruto frist few eps were dragy, after the fight with the sword girl you should have all the info you as to weather you like it or not, ep 12 is killer just for a show of character and character dev.

What is up with the Deep Blood incident?
I didn't see it in the manga.

I did watch the anime.
The point is: is it real?

Ummm I think its safe to assume she was living in a more controlled environment until she got away and they were just trying to convince her to come back with them but took the slow path to do it.

It's real and canon because the Deep Blood Arc is based on Volume 2 of the light novels. The reason it didn't appear in the manga was because Volume 2 was the least popular of the novels thus the manga skip it in favor of the Volume 3 which is currently the Mikoto arc that is also currently showing in the anime.

Thanks, and I gotta ask.
What kind of clones are the Sisters?
are they artificial clones, or humans genetically altered to model Railgun?
The way it was described is kinda ambiguous.

According to the manga, they are clones of Misaka that were created using her cell samples inserted into fertilized eggs in Cloning Vats where their growth was speeded using medication and were implanted basic brain functions like language Movement and logic via a Brain Washing machine. Each clone cost about 180,000 Yen (US$1,992.90) thus many can be produced at a cheap cost and so basically the Sisters are artificial clones. Hope that answers your question.

I don't really know the technical definition of "artificial clones"
But from the way you described it, I would interpret that they were born humans and individuals.

Actually they lack Individuality because their minds are connected via their psychic electrical powers where they constantly transmit data with each other. So what 1 sister sees the other knows. Of course the one exception would be No. 100,032 who's has some slight individuality as she likes Cats and knows how to make a bad joke.

assuming 100,032 is the one touma saved, maybe its because of his hand that gave her a personality. his hands stop anything magical or psychic anyway.( and the clones are possible might be due to the powers)

It killed his previous self and stripped him of his sense of personal identity--that's what it felt like to him. The other characters don't know that he's lost his memory, but they have pointed out discrepancies in his behavior. That he doesn't have any friends aside from those two spacey guys helps.

"Arhen"? You mean Schrödinger's cat, in episode 12? Komoe was giving a technobabble explanation of how esper powers operate. Of course, it seems like everyone was asking "Why?"--but in the sense of "Why are they wasting our time with this halfassed unnecessary explanation? Needs more Biri Biri."

Yeah, Schrödinger's cat... was some time since I was reminded of taht.... there were some implications in Evangelion about Schrödinger's cat in the box when discussing Asuka's character... Nice to see it popping out in here as well.

But frankly I could do without all those unnecessarily explanations...

Given enough friction between the particles in the dust cloud, it could be enough to set off a spark for the explosion.
