Really?!
This guys has the potential to pull off some good Ryona stuffs, too bad he's such a trash.
So he didn't end up having a trauma, finally?!

Oh he did, don't worry about it. You'll see it in the translation release, it shouldn't take long.

He's trash alright, but somehow I find it quite interesting how he ended up like this. He's definitely brilliant, but powerless (esper wise), giving him a peculiar complex. The result being him trying especially hard to prove that intelligence is better than esper abilities. He would make a good Kihara if only he wasn't so driven by emotions... But that's basically it, he's like a wannabe Kihara, and without the most important feature he falls far behind.

It's like no one has any sense for revenge / justice.
It was a bit of a let down, but well within character (and within script, Baba can't die here.)

Remember Wannai and Awatsuki are serious pacifists, just some chapters ago they were commenting about never being angry. Perhaps knowing they had obtained what was needed to help Kongou and seeing Baba groveling pathetically in the ground was enough to calm their outburst, pity taking the place of anger.

And Mikoto, well, she does believe Misaki is behind everything...

What intrigues me now is what's the connection between Misaki's original plan and MEMBER's actions... I particularly hope the mess isn't a result of plain misfortune.

While we all know that Kamachi would never go that far, it's always good to have options on the table.

How long do you think this series will continue for: before, after, or at the same time as the end of the main series?

Who knows? I think it's possible to squeeze in an arc during the times Touma was in Italy and UK.

I would like to see how the 0930 incident will have its effects on Railgun, I know it will not be shown clearly, but at least it suggests.

At this rate it will still be ongoing 10 years after the main series ends.

It might be skipped, just like many other events were skipped.
It does not have any connection to the story of Railgun.
Mikoto was just helping Touma a bit, but she was not really involved.

How to put it.. it would be really out of place, similar to Angel Fall.
(I really hoped this would show up at least for the gags with swapped characters)

Jokes aside.
There was some questions (in other thread) regarding Mikoto's battle capability aside from her abilities and this chapter has proven that Tokiwadai trains their students in hand to hand combat
(can she get even more OP?)

I think Acer is talking about the effects of said event

Spoiler:
There are two potential lines there for nice side plots and I would be surprised if they were wasted... Of course, considering the pace, it will take a long while to reach that point.

You know, now that I think about it, there's some heavy stuff going on under the bridge, such as what happened to the girl Accelerator rescued from a certain dealer.

Depending on how much darkness Kamachi wants in the Railgun manga, he could very well tease us with Saten or one of her friends getting abducted (level 0s are the ones at the highest risk after all)... Of course, Mikoto would rescue her before anything grave happened else she would go full psycho... which, like I said some time ago, is not her destiny.

Railgun series > Index series.

Watching esper fighting with each other is much better watching some dude who punching every magician he encountered.

Watch Railgun.

Count the padding and fanservice in time.

Then watch Index.

Repeat exercise.

Compare numbers.

Can we stop this before we get into a big arguement that nobody can win? Index and Railgun both have different strong points, some people prefer one and some prefer the other.

It is unfair to compare to the anime, God, the second season was completely massacred by the direction. I think an original work can only be compared to other original work, but it better stop right here. but, noobita, you read books index?
