Just watched the episode, and I have to say the fights looked pretty well done. Still very pissed off about that very short Accel/LO scene that left out a LOT, but as a LN reader I think I'll be nitpicking at things throughout the entire season, so I'll continue to post excerpts from the LN so that people here can compare.

Awaki is wonderfully portrayed here and she continues to be one of my favorite characters in the Index series because of her powers and her fashion sense.

I do have to agree though, what's with Kuroko's random teleporting off of buildings? Not that it doesn't look nice, but what was the purpose of that?

Also, I felt kinda pissed off when I saw that the budget and animation only substantially increased in an episode where the Railgun girls were featured.

Actually as someone who had read this volume, I thought they did a really good job adapting it. The reason why the fights felt short in comparison to the other novel readers was because most of it involves ALOT of monologue planning, if you cut out those then this is what you would get... Though in the process they seem to have removed Mikoto fighting with the other Espers. Also I would like to add that the other large portion of the story went to Kuroko's [undying love for Mikoto] monologue which was honestly sweet, but abit overkill later on.

The Remnant arc is possibly the most straight forward story for this season so really the anime just got the right amount of information in and they're already at the half mark point, I could honestly see this ending smoothly next episode. But then again, I really only had one expectation for this arc and it comes from the last part...

Lots of nice service this ep.

Is the Tree Diagram built using one off components? Instead of using the the pieces can't they build another one?

We're not sure of the details, but it implies that those components cannot be recreated. Maybe because of the insane cost of even building one? It was suppose to be a super-SUPER computer that can even tell the weather.

it did feel a little rushed but it got the main things and they had to put kuroko acting funny in the beginning or it wouldn't be the same. Also they didn't exactly show what happened in the first fight. But im still pleased.

BTW what BGM?

Pretty good episode IMO, fast-paced but I didn't get the feeling it's rushed.

I'm also disappointed that the bit where LO and Accel talks about the previous incident are not included, plus some other details that wasn't put into the episode. I understand they cut off the bit where Mikoto curbstomped Awaki's forces due to it not being too important to the plot, but it would have been nice seeing other espers being beaten down easily by her.

Still, a 9/10 from me.

Pretty much what I thought as well. The only part that seemed a little bit iffy was the last scene with Mikoto, but it resulted in the same thing either way without really discrediting the actual purpose of why Mikoto seemed to hesitate.

As for the monologues thing... I actually think totally ignoring them for this episode actually works better as long as it's given a good drive home next week. You're a novel reader, so you should be aware when the most key and vital 'monologue' moments in this story is. Keeping the 'facade' is important when you translate it into animation.

Rather than saying it's vital, it's more appropriate to say that it's the best ( emotionally-charged ) reflection of the mental battle that takes place between those espers.

I don't like to spoil, but it's basically the type of scene that would allow a 3rd person viewer to put their own pieces of the puzzle onto earlier scenes that weren't given the benefit of internal monologues.

I thought this episode was brilliant.

I found this more interesting than the other Index II episodes. Perhaps it's because the focus has shifted from the world to the characters. I liked Kuroko's character throughout the whole series, but from this one episode, damn... Such an awesome character.

I found myself laughing during the beginning of the episode, and at the edge of my seat when everything got serious. The whole flying-through-the-town thing caught me a little off guard. But also answered one of my questions of, "So, Kuroko can fly if she just teleports a lot while in the air?".

Voice acting... Both Misaka and Kuroko's VA are excellent as always.

I really wish this would last more than two episodes... But because it was in Index, I doubt it'd be expanded if we get a Railgun II.

I can't say much for this episode besides the fact that I think more episodes should be like this. I'm real biased though since I'm a Railgun fan. The pacing was fast, but having not read the light novel, nothing really felt left out. I really liked the fast pace actually. It gets to the point instead of dwelling. I never found myself losing focus at times like I did with the previous arc.

The one thing that bothers me about the Kuroko teleportation in air scene is - how the hell is Kuroko keeping herself floating when she's not teleporting from place to place?

Of course, many people will kick her ass too...

Maybe Railgun will expand the part of Mikoto before Kuroko interfere.

Disappoint.
Wow. That is a seriously bitter truncation of events! Even if the revelation may do nothing to further the particulars of this arc, it's little character moments as these that I gain a deeper appreciation for any series.

That she should. Though a big part of her draw for me is Satomi Arai's performance. It's just so creepy hilarious!
