Is it me or Mikoto has such a large fanbase that they rant for more of her and less on Index?

I don't mean anything bad to Mikoto fans, but if there aren't real Science side antagonists left to introduce, then I guess Index 3 is a better option. Then JC Staff will just have to focus on the WW3 arc and the arcs after that, even if the next antagonist after Fiamma is from the Science side. Potential candidates are Aiwass and Aleister Crowley.

Unless Kamachi comes up with an idea for new Science side antagonists which the protagonists have to fight for extended periods, I'm not expecting Railgun 2.

Erm, no, everything accounted, Railgun 2 needs to come first before Index 3.

You don't want to have to revisit the Sisters Arc after the events of WWIII, trust me, it would feel wrong.

As for science enemies, there's really no shortage.

So we can have a Magic Side Antagonist for A Certain SCIENTIFIC Railgun, huh? But hey, Index even has Accel for a temporary Science side antagnoist.

Hey now, be nice. Not everyone reads the novels, and you don't really hear much about level 5's in the amine other then Mikoto and Accelerator.

Well the season finale was interesting. I'm surprise that Shiage is voiced by Yuji and doesn't sounds like Yuji too! Plus he looks better in the anime, unlike his LN look which was...not pretty.

Anyhoo, i gives this episode an 8. This wasn't the wham finale i wanted but still good.

PS:Here's hoping for a 2nd season of Railgun...or Shana 3rd and final season.

Shiage receives Touma's "blessing". His life will soon change.

Railgun S2 will probably have a focus on SISTER experiment.

Felt this ep was rushed (then again, I read the novels...), but my main annoyance with this episode is that they didn't say where Touma picked up that piece of bulletproof glass.

Well not a bad way to wrap things up. Normally I'd be bothered with Index's random head biting, but Touma deserved something like that this time. Without Accelerator Touma and Mikoto's mother would have gotten themselves killed all because they didn't want to drag Mikoto into it. This is an assassination attempt on her mother, think she probably would have liked to be apprised of the situation. It would have been safer and easier to just let her blast the Skillout guys to hell. Don't think she would have been all that happy to see their corpses just because they decided she shouldn't know about it.

And really Touma going on a speech about being a level 0 when you have such a special ability just sounds fake. The key points were true, but he shouldn't act like he's a normal person when he's not.

A well done job by Accelerator though. He got his target after a rough fight, he took care of some side business (which would have been nice to see a bit of), and he saved Touma and Mikoto's mother. A busy day, but he managed to get it all taken care of without much fuss. Good luck taking care of the higher ups since with their ability to mess with his power activation it's a risky venture.

This, I agree. Really, Touma just reached a new low in preaching...

Well not all level 0's are powerless. Take Tsuchimikado for instance, he's a level 0 but he technically has his auto-rebirth ability.

Description of a level 0 from the Index wiki:
"Exceptions aside, cannot be considered completely powerless, but are the so-called "students that can't keep up at school". Might possess some degree of power, but unable to truly control it. "

This might not mean much to most normal people, but this little piece of news just made my day in the most strangest and incomprehensible way
really??!!! then all of J.C staff seiyuu's aces are in Index....

This is a great prelude before third season
and maybe this is the only episode where Touma's speech isn't too boring for me... ^^
go Accelerator & teams.... I think he is evolved to my favourite character in Index right now....

perfect episode for me... nice one!!
waiting for third season

that's good to hear. but, so far, Touma has proved of having a certain degree of control over his "ability". what with waving his right hand around and all...
so, I wouldn't really say that "Might possess some degree of power, but unable to truly control it" applies to him.

True, his special ability can cancel out most esper and magic related attacks, but then again his power is only in his right hand. It's only on one specific part of his body. I really wouldn't call that much of control. If he had any control of it, it would be to activate on and off at will and maybe spread throughout his whole body, but it's just his right hand. Catch off guard or preventing him from using his right hand would get him killed if not hurt.

I'm not very sure, but I remember Aleister saying that Touma's ability is neither magic nor esper, so I don't really think you can apply "Level 0" onto him.

He is only labeled "Level 0" for technical and political purposes.

Despite this, IB still isn't esper nor magic ability.
