Yeah, I agree with this. First OP was much, much better.
Is it just me or chara designs underwent some not so subtle changes? It almost felt like I was watching another series...
Also, what's up with the sudden lack of fanservice in it?

Disagree wholeheartdely! Song-wise, that is. About the OP itself... oh well. Could've been better but I don't find it bad anyway. And LOL one of my friends has a similar mentality... when I talked about an episode I found really good, he asked "so is there some nice fanservice in it?" and when I said no he was like "oh :l..." and went quiet.

The way Accel-chan laughs is best. :3

Still don't know what to think about the new OP. Song's great, and some parts awesome, but I still expected it to be better, it gives me a messy feeling... and wait, what, GROUP? Eh, but I like it a lot anyway.

The ep itself was great, there was everything that should be there. I like how Mikoto was rather the usual "fight me, you won't avoid it". And the Sisters+LO+Accel, characters that make me like the science side more XD Well, the long-awaited arc begins

AWESOME OP! Dammit! Great music. Things are getting serious.
Too bad batsu geemu didn't last long... (I'm getting sick of Kuroko too, she ruins everything!)

Oh, song is nice. I agree with that. But, visually... Yea, could've been better.
I'm not saying that it's bad or anything, just that I liked OP1 more. Both song and visually-wise.

Hahaha, your friend is funny.
May I ask for a way to contact him? We probably have one or two things in common...

Btw, considering the fact that Index (together with Railgun) has some of best quality fanservice moments out there (as an easy and quick trip to some Japanese imageboards can confirm), your friend might not be entirely wrong in his mindset...

Good episode, decent OP. Bored of Mami Kawada however. Was hoping for another artist.. maybe next season.. but at this point she's iconic to this series.

Wow. I thought they would cut out the Uiharu violin scene since it clashes with the timeline of Railgun, but it seems that they really want to give Mikoto the most amount of screentime. :/

I really wanted to see the scene where they were leaving the hospital. They cut out a lot of great Accel/LO scenes this season. Disappoint.

The OP was nice, although I did expect a bit more for the best arc of the season. However, the one thing that makes me love it is - EVEN THOUGH THEY AREN'T SUPPOSED TO BE INTRODUCED YET, HELL YEAH GROUP'S FIRST ANIMATED APPEARANCE! I really hope this is an indication of a third season, or at least an OVA of SS coming...

Here's the weekly LN excerpt dose! There are scenes that were cut from the anime in these.

Leaving the hospital:
Spoiler for volume 12 winter clothes:

Accel and LO meet Komoe:

Tsuchimikado and food:

Men, a lot of demons in this episode XD. The new opening was cool but I wasn't really amazed with the song and the fact that they cut another Accel/LO scene bothers me, but overall it was a good episode

Next week: poor Accel's wallet

Too late..... orz.

Well about the designs somehow I'm getting the feeling that they're trying to made them more like their light novel versions.

Scenes when I bursted out laughing:
when Accel/LO started taking jabs on Komoe-sensei.
All of Kuroko's scenes
Touma fanning Biribiri and Kuroko's envy.
The couple shot (my highlight of the episode)
Uiharu and the violin scene (Mikoto did play the violin before in Railgun but I guess they're not counting that timeline or something. No Saten-san though makes me feel sad. There's no one to flip Uiharu's skirt .
The Sister's scene with the new uniform (Lol with the ring=success)

The whole episode was hilarious. I'm really expecting a lot from this arc.

Acha...~ This was the best episode so far. The only one so far that deserves a 10/10. And it happens to be a daily life, science-side episode.
Toaru Railgun: ∩( ・ω・)∩∩( ・ω・)∩∩( ・ω・)∩∩( ・ω・)∩ U~~i~~ha~~RU~!

Can't go wrong with a lot of silly Kuroko.

Finally a new OP. It was "exciting", but that is only because it is new and there are a lot of stuff in the OP that shows a whole bunch of new characters. It actually isn't a good OP though. The first time I see it is information rush and exciting, but after that, it doesn't leave much impression afterwards. A good OP is like Star Driver's 2nd one. No matter how many times I see that one, it pumps me up for the episode.

Average episode, the OP was uninspiring. Disappointing. The silly antics and tropes, and fanservice bits are definitely what plague this series. The series is much better when they don't give these things too much focus.
