She can create gruesome creatures out of a harmless cat. Imagine how it would affect humans.
She's just that dangerous.

...laser cat....

some questions about the translation of volume 12.

when the 4 MISAKA clones are speaking, it was translated as
'speech', as MISAKA 'description'
this does not make much sense in English.

wouldn't it be better to translate their speech by removing the 'as'
for example:
"'In other words, she is keeping it secret from other Misakas that she's doing secret, stealthy, unclean behavior (a diet)?' as Misaka 10032 would follow up."

and change it to

"'In other words, she is keeping it secret from other Misakas that she's doing secret, stealthy, unclean behavior (a diet)?' Misaka 10032 follows up."

There are several of their lines that work well both ways though. Just food for translation thought.

It was pretty interesting but headache-inducing at the same time.

Not yer, you have to wait the second DVD or BR release.

EDIT:


I just noticed but in some forums Uiharu seems to be hated, some calls her "talkative pot", the scene where Kakine stomps her is called "fanservice" or just they Kakine an hero. Ok, I can't wait years to see more of these opinions if a third season ever gets animated .

The anime industry seems to like to do things in 2's and 3's. I think they will make a 3rd season eventually.

I imagine they would have met before Accelerator's first mission, some time between vol 13 to the start of SS1.

On the topic of Group... Only Accelerator and Etzali are pretty well developed, Tsuchimikado... We know nothing about his past and how he got roped into all this, Awaki- Her motivation is supposedly her comrades locked up, but we never even got to know them... (Unless this was in vol 15 cause I haven't read it yet)

so it just skipped right to them being group and they all get along like nothing despite the fact accelerator beat the shit out of awaki?

I wouldn't say that they "get along"...

Quote:
“Don’t interfere in other people’s fights.”

“Oh? Is that any way to talk to the person that saved your life?”

“…Do you want me to kill you?”

“Right back at you.”

A thin smile appeared on Musujime’s face and she got so close he could feel her breath on his face.

Her eyes were open so wide they looked like dinner plates.

“Did you forget? The only reason I’m here is because you interfered with my fight on that day. If it weren’t for you, I could have hidden and gotten more people to help me. Then I could have attacked the facility my comrades are restrained in and rescued them.”

The smile on her face looked like it was slicing her head in two as she slowly spoke.

“Heh. Heh heh. If you use your powers to help me with my work in GROUP and my comrades are released as a result, I’ll forgive you. But if you get in my way, you’re dead. Make sure your value to me doesn’t fall any farther. If you don’t you’ll have corkscrews all over your body.”

“Shut the fuck up, woman.” Accelerator cracked his neck as he responded. “You’re the one that doesn’t understand. You’re the one that got so upset just because I smashed some of your luggage. Try and get this in that defective brain of yours. If you waste even a second of my life, you’re going to be nothing more than a stain in a back alley.”

Basically what Wilfriback said, if you want details- Mikoto goes to Russia to exhibit the powers of a Level 5 to the public and somehow gets caught up in anoher incident.

That's what the SS is for, how Accelerator treats them is pretty much how their intro would have gone down.

At best they don't care, at worst alot of angry glare and provocations.

Personally, I think they're all just given a dossier and were told to read it.

I think 'lay down the hurt' is different to 'KO without injuring them too badly'... after all, tasers are supposed to be 'safe' weapons that subdues but not kill (I don't know if that's really the case though - Don't know enough about Real-Life weapons here ). Mikoto was picking off people that isn't much of a threat to her (ie Hound Dogs), so wounding opponents or not in that circumstance isn't really much of a point?
(I'm assuming that magicians like Sherry or Stiyl would be able to outmatch a van full of Hound Dogs, and someone that might actually be a threat to Mikoto in a fight - Mikoto vs Hound Dogs is pretty much just a one-way beatdown for the poor sods fighting the Railgun)

@Shinji103:
1) Mikoto's win in the fight with ITEM was less due to Mikoto's own skill and more because of Mugino's arrogance IMO... Mugino told the others to retreat so she can fight Mikoto one on one, and then fell for Mikoto's trap at the end.
Even at the start Mikoto wasn't fighting ITEM at full power - one member was at another site, and Frenda was already down when Mugino finally stepped in.

2) Mikot have the skills, and maybe the capability for battle... but probably not the experience. She's probably like one of those rookies that is talented but lack field experience. I'll concede that Mikoto living the 'rich girl' life doesn't mean she won't have experience... but at the same time, it doesn't means she does have experience, seeing as she haven't ran into something from the Dark Side of Academy City before that incident with Level Upper.

3) For the record, Acqua was the one that put up the area spell to prevent civilians getting in.
And to your main burn that Mikoto just let Touma walked off like that... I'd like to say Mikoto's just a 14-yr old (give or take 1-2 yrs?) teenage girl, and is overwhelmed by her discovery that she has some sort of deep feeling towards Touma; BUT I'm not, nor ever have been, a teenage girl and thus can't say how a teenage girl would react in that situation So if you can't accept the reason that was implicitly stated in the novels that Mikoto is frozen by her own discovery than I can't really provide any more reasoning *shrug*

The point is, despite the Hound Dog's killing intents, Mikoto is confident enough to handle them without needing to restort to fatal blows. So really I don't see where this whole "No killing intent equals hesitation equals easy defeat" comes from. And lets say she goes against an opponent than gave her trouble like... Kiyama? Again, no problem. So what if you're willing to kill? It doesn't automatically make you a better fighter, Touma defeated tons of people out to kill him and I don't see why Mikoto should be any different if faced with the same people.


Power Level in Toaru is funny that way, Sherry I can see her using her Golem as a shield, but as you can see Anti-Skill got her pin down using cover fire. Stiyl I think would have a bigger problem against guns- yes he got the 'fire' power, but a straight on fight? Fires don't stop bullets.


Anyway, those two can't match Mikoto if all they can bring is firepower. And From the Railgun manga we know that Mikoto can be just as resourceful as the others.

No, Stiyl has illusions runes at his disposition. If they can't find him they can't shoot him. They guy relies on those kind of tricks and other more, thats why he gets that phisically weak by using all his energy on magic.
