I assume that's "at cost." The pure price of the biological materials necessary to grow a physically 14-year-old girl from scratch. After all, the scientists aren't going to charge themselves anything more. Market price would be higher, since there would be a need to make a profit, plus shipping charges and such.

She shot a railgun at those 2 robbers on a car just because one of them make her crepe fall on the floor during the first season.

I barely remember what happened in S1, so I'll take your word for it. But you know what I mean; she didn't actually want to kill those dudes. That seems like more of a comedic scene which shows how hot-tempered Misaka can be.

The MISAKA clone neglected to mention the cost of your soul...

Wait, when did this happen? Whilst i don't doubt that Misaka's friends probably would be endanger themselves to get involved in this situation, the way you say it makes it sound like it's already happened. Are you talking about another incident?

I just skip all the scenes with the girls(including that last scene, I just turned off the stream then.), Saten and Uiharu are waaaay too nosy, and get on my damn nerves, ffs at least give them some kind of power, otherwise I just skip all of their scenes.

Still Mikoto can't keep it together and starts to partially breakdown. Saten realizes that something bad happened, but that Mikoto doesn't want to share it with them. So like a good friend she suggests going to the arcade and distracting Mikoto from her worries, which also changes the subject and allows Mikoto to get out of having to explain her breakdown right then. She also tell Mikoto that whatever is happening if Mikoto can't handle it on her own to remember she has friends.

That's like basic realistic depiction of a friendship. I didn't take it as Mikoto suddenly being all happy and better. Just that it gave Mikoto time to regain her composure, and put her happy mask back on. I'm sure Mikoto is still very shook up and depressed. No doubt the future episodes are bound for more darkness.

Possibly. However Mikoto might have deflected the coin enough to avoid being hit. It's not outside her ability.

I'm actually surprised: despite having already read/seen this story so many times, this anime is actually pulling me in emotionally. Nice job from the studio.

That's what I loved. For all her "Who do I think I am?" or "I am a level 5" boasting, she couldn't even land a blow on a fellow level 5.





Especially when he finally gets a new toy after putting up with a couple thousand clones who can do little more than running for their lives.
Guy wanted some quality entertainment from Misaka. Unfortunately she failed to deliver.
Eh. It's because of Accelerators broken ability. Accelerator himself isn't strong, it's his ability to manipulate stuff and re-direct attacks made against him that makes him such a hassle. I'm sure physically he couldn't even stand up to the very athletic Misaka who could kick him to the curb in a straight no powers brawl.

Ok, he isn't that good regarding physical abilities but I'm sure he would pose a serious problem on a fist fight.

With his powers, sure. Fists can't hit him any more than anything else can, and he can break anybody with a twitch of his finger.

Look to who am I talking to and you will notice that I'm talking about Accelerator without his power.

Not necessarily. Ranged attacks on him, even bullets, do not return with the exact same path as they were shot at him.

I have two theories about that. If the auto-reflection works like a mirror, then there are many possible angles for the return fire (since Accelerator is not a flat and ever perpendicular surface)

The other could be taking wind and friction into consideration. A sniper has to adjust for that, but Accelerator wouldn't care. So with the distance being essentially double, the reflected attack will have double the natural deviation.

In either case, I would bet it was more luck what saved Mikoto, not a conscious effort from Accelerator to miss her.

Well, just by looking at the depictions, against Touma she used the tornado to blind him so he couldn't see her approach to prepare for it. She was careful to keep a big eye in the tornado so that Touma would not be seriously injured.

Against Accelerator she tried to use the iron dust tornado as an actual weapon, with the eye shrinking to nothing the iron dust should have ripped his skin open. Leading to injury and high blood loss at least. Not sure if it would be a lethal weapon- assuming Accelerator got swift medical attention - but it would at minimum disable him. It could also be lethal if intense enough, and Mikoto was not holding back.

Are y'all forgetting about her use of the iron sand tornado against AIM Burst from season 1?

She attacked him with the tornado sand and used it as an opportunity to distract him but I don't recall her specifically trying to an eye on it to make sure it didn't injure him.

Not against Misaka whose very athletic and had done quite a bit of athletic stuff in the Anime, S1 and S2. Misaka is also more inventive with her abilities while Accelerator just stands there letting his natural defenses do everything for him.

Accelerator is only powerful because of his broken ability, without it he really can't do much of anything while Misaka at least is very intelligent, inventive, and athletic in comparison.

She cut through that AIM burst with arms as thick as trees effortlessly with the iron sand. The way she hit accelerator with it, he would have been a pile of blocks the size of sugar cubes had he not had a defense for it.
