Irony seems to be a thing for the Science side-

Remember the Mercenary who swore never to be taken out by an RPG ?

Well, see Kongou being beaten really gives the feeling that I'm watching the show right.
Lol, call it a series tradition to always have a girl getting beat up and tortured almost every arc
I really don't understand you guys (TwT)

Maahh~ It's a bit of dark humor But you can't deny that there's some truth to it:

Volume 1: Index lying in a pool of her own blood
Volume 2: Megane girl's self mutilation via spell
Volume 3: That purple thing


Volume 6: Kazakiri getting knocked around
Volume 7: Orsola getting knocked around
Volume 8: Both Kuroko and Awaki got beat up
Volume 9: Fukiyose got 'heat stroke'
Volume 10: Himegami lying in a pool of her own blood


etc. etc. Both Uiharu and Saten got their share of ass-whooping as well, so you can call it tradition I guess

So remember, nice girls get beat up all the time, unless you're a loli, in which case you'll only get mind-raped... Probably.

girls being beaten, mutilated, etc., is part of the universe this series(index/railgun), since it is something we are used to see that this is happening in this chapter gives a sense of normalcy.

Chaos : I've already seen loli reduced to meat though ... but I want to forget that one. But I'll try to remember that advice next time.

Mah to be fair, if it was written by Kagami Takaya or Urobutcher Gen, I doubt I would be able to joke about it since those two are the real deal sadists.

Everybody knows Gen by now, those unfamiliar with Kagami need only to look to DenYuuDen's Anime some years ago- I can't recall a single character that doesn't have a violent and traumatic back story, and a fair number of female characters were almost raped at some point in their lives.

Awatsuki Maaya. The one to the right is Wannai Kinuho. Both have water-based esper powers, and are in Tokiwadai Swimming Team.

interesting the 2nd guy you mentioned brought some nightmares to me several times, and transformed a slice-of-life I was looking forward to into a sadistic genre deconstruction.

The Kongou took just a basic beat and the next chapter already seems to be avenged, and only now I started to like her, if that makes you feel better I promise to root for her in his next fight

Not really sure how Saten being there will decide his fate, but I agree that his end is near.
(Considering Kongo's shape, she will most likely transport her to hospital, not fight)

Even if it is tradition, this was really unexpected.

It feels like the memory wipe
Manga is slowly (VERY SLOWLY) building up stuff, foreshadowing etc..
And you expect all of that to to finally bear fruits and sudenly character out of story.

But girls being beaten is one of the beautiful sites (maybe I should use another word) in the series, I'm surprised to hear that some people still are surprised that no matter who is picked up, I was not particularly shocked or anything to see the Kongou well.

Not bad. But its just a one sided ass kicking on a powerless girl unlike a fight where they blow away.
At least the manga returned back to the old ttradition. Still I find somewhat ironic that any character can end beaten up to pulp but the protagonist, well... always safe from any damage. The plot still is very slow.

Did you not see my list? More than half of them involves violence on powerless girls.

Really? That's your complain? That the third strongest Esper doesn't get beat up (Even though she does when fighting against strong opponents) ? Seriously your biasness is too blatant.

To me the point isn't if the opponent is strong but skilled enough to fight. Every character in Toaru series gets their own share of being beaten up to pulp protagonist are no exception so how is that bias?

Mmm... meh, don't mind about it that much, its not my opinion isn't gonna change that never.

The way that Mikoto is loved by the public, if her suffers a beating, chances are several fans holding torches go Kamachi's house. Of course I'm ignoring the fact that her is the third strongest Esper and blablabla

More importantly, every opponent she fought so far except Mugino had either known who she was and never fought that far, or were already outpowered by her.
