I didn't watch the stream this time, but just from looking at pics, I can already tell that I'm gonna like this episode. Just because of this:


Himegami appears too.

...Mmmmm~........ Didn't really like the episode. Had less than 0 interest towards the focus character of this episode in the first place, and the first half of the episode felt sooo... long... The second half was a bit better, but in general, little happened and not enough Mikoto and friends.
I guess it was nice to see two new characters. You know, the nun and long-black hair girl.

I seems we are going to have episodes focusing on side characters for a while?

Heeey, whaddaya know, the Index universe does still exist, lol.

That aside, another rather "meh" episode. They didn't exactly choose one of the more interesting Railgun characters to focus on to begin with, and not much interesting happened around her to help.

And yep, it looks like we've got side character focus for a bit. Next episode seems to be on the dorm manager from hell, but I can't say she'd make any better focus material. She's good as a brief-appearance character, but I dunno as a focus character. And this episode, while not being bad, isn't a horribly good indicator for the next episode.

7/10

Of course, I doubt that storyline is supposed to have happened seeing as the anime hasn't reached the sister arc yet

Sub is out

Seems like filler until the final storyline which is hopefully the sister arc. Bu until then, these episodes are painful, I watch Railgun to see Railgun =\

The episode wasn't bad, sure a bit slow, but not bad. I think it's actually a nice change of pace from all the action we've seen so far and will probably see if the Sister Arc gets animated.

And even if the Sister Arc isn't animated(which i hope is), maybe we'll catch more development between characters and get to see Saten's power....hopefully

This filler probably occured during the Himegami arc. And lol at Touma's three-second rule - can't he teach the right things to the right people?

And Komoe-sensei's "students who blew a hole through her roof". LOL!

Aisa is wearing her seal... so that's impossible.

The railgun anime isn't trying to fit into the timeline. It's honestly not worth thinking about.

I actually liked this episode, quite refreshing and also a nice change of scenery. Not to mention we saw Index and Aisa which both coincidentally had food problems...

Why it isn't trying to fit into the timeline? I can only see it as an indication that the second arc of Index is over.
