this episode was pretty loaded. Felt like an hour long episode to me.
Mikoto is great as usual. The sport event was pretty fun to watch.

I liked the random girl that shot the purple laser @ Touma and her surprised face.

Touma was kind of annoying when blonde guy was acting 'coldly' towards Stiyl when he was getting hit by the counter magic. Stiyl took the injuries willingly, and your there to help stop it...

  3. How long will it take him to realize these are life and death situations?
  4. Out of ALL the things at that school, it were those basket poles?
  5. Why didn't Touma just tell Misaka the pole was dangerous because of a spell and to back away?
  6. Why hasn't Index put her panties back on yet!?
  7. Why did Touma push the girl out of the way but stand there himself, instead of moving away?
But yeah... still enjoyable.
  1. Because he doesn't know what can he cancel and what he can't?
  2. No idea I guess, or wasn't he stalking her?
  3. Because he doesn't know what is the motive of Oriana's transaction?
  4. Decoys? But that was a pretty stupid place to try to delay, unless she's trying to trick them into thinking she went there. But pretty much a waste of paper on Oriana's part :P
  5. He doesn't know how to explain magic to her (remember this is AC and Mikoto's no magician to know that), and he doesn't even understand himself how would one being struck by that spell be like
  6. No idea... ask the person in question yourself
  7. No idea, but I guess he really wanted to stop the basket poles from falling but weren't sure if he can.

D

Most of them can be charted down as just 'it's a show' but for these two i can answer.

The reasoning they've concluded was that it’s likely that Oriana won’t get close to the school because of the strict security guards at the back door. Trying to break through it while running away is a waste of effort… The basket poles where only recently brought in from the outside borrowed from some other place. It probably wasn't Oriana's intention to place the spell in the school, but she didn't know that it would be used in a competition.
And it wouldn't be on the balls because those were only brought in when they had arrived.


As for Misaka... Going through the whole explaination about magic and stuff would arguably take a longer time... Plus they're not suppose to talk about it.

Funniest part of the episode was Touma's astonishment that Oriana found out he was following her. Hell, he might as well have been giving her a piggyback. He needs to brush on them detective skills better and less on those flowery soap box speeches...

Perfect 10/10. Nothing much to say but still perfect. I can't wait for the next episode.

I wished they had explained more about shorthand and such.

Shorthand is kinda tricky to explain...The novel actually went into a great deal to explain it... this is one of the part that they cut out.

Probably she just wanted to see how far can Touma negate her attacks (in which we have seen she's not going to win anyway), or it's just that it's her way of "playing games" with Touma (really, who else can she freely and happily call a lightning strike on without killing anyone?)

Now that I've gotten to the subs... it seems that yeah, the animation is quite inconsistent. A few minutes in and Touma is somehow drawn with a tougher build in one frame, and the other he's in... uh, skinny build?
Mikoto knows Touma can cancel her ability she doesn't know how he does it. She keeps thinking Touma is holding back his power hence all those chases before meeting Index. Seven Level 5 in Academy City and she hasn't heard of this guy and his power.

Once in the Railgun manga Mikoto feared if Touma ever got serious her power would be sealed.

In the Railgun anime Touma's ability is treated as an urban legend. Turns out most of those urban legends are true. (Naked Woman LOL)

Despite Touma's ability Imagine Breaker it can't be detected by scientific means. Which is why Touma is treated as Level 0.

To say the least when Level 5 meet Touma they are shocked at what he can do. Its not supposed to be possible what he is doing.

Still, her curiosity on Touma's power doesn't exactly give her any "rights" to keep persuading him to face her in a fight... other than that I just don't feel there was any reason at all

If you look back after the sisters arc or the Aug 31 arc, Mikoto hasn't been challenging him at all

is it just me? the animation for this ep looks a little bit sloppy?

did anyone else feel scared when Tsuchimikado jumped on Touma during the mud scene? fanfics will ensure

the Mikoto blushing scene was cute, i hope we can more of her side like that in the future episodes

There are already Touma/Tsuchimikado popping out...

with this episode, I can see the fujoshi side of Toaru fans rejoicing when Tsuchimikado did that.

"KAMI-YAAAAAAAAAAAAAANNNN~~~~~~~!!!!!!!!"

Go on. Let the fujoshi in you take your mind and imagine more ways how will Motoharu "dirty" Touma.

Anyway, it's great to see Mitsuko Kongo again. But i hope they put a Saten cameo as well.

Talk about fujoshi... no, I'm not one. Moreover I'm a guy, so I can't be a fujoshi.

But seeing how the idea of Tsuchimikado "dirtying" Touma itself is funny, I can't help but laugh as well.

Touma x Mikoto scene was hair tearingly frustrating, he just stands there and talk?! Why doesn't he walk up, check it out, and talk with Mikoto all at the same time? That girl acting like the dear in front of head lights was stupid too, she and Touma could have just taken two steps to the side...

Well there was a girl Touma saved that resembled Saten, but it wasnt her. As was already stated her hair was shorter, eye color diferent and she didn't have a flower clip. And again i got HQ version of it and then watched it really carefully in slow mode, but no cameo of Saten, Uiharu, Kuroko, Akemi, Muu, Mako, Erii, Banri, Miho. There was several people that resembled some of them a bit, but their clothes was diferent from those worn in railgun season, so i didnt counted them. The same goes for several previous episodes (ofc i dont count normal kuroko/uiharu scene).
