Ah I see the confusion.
Railgun happens inside Index, not exactly before.

Railgun episode 2 is after episode 1 of majutsu, Touma and Misaka have already meet but they don't even know their names yet.
At some point Touma learns Misaka name because of her fame but Misaka only find out his name later.

But I fail to remember any case in Railgun that seems to imply it was their first meeting or anything like that. Episode 2 already makes it quite clear they know each other.

(Later there seems to be a reset in their relationship, but it's obviously due to the memory problem and Misaka shrugs it off and plays along)

The events between Misaka and Touma that happened in the first ep of Index happen a few times, in the LN Touma is being Challanged to a duel by Misaka for the Nth time that month after he saved some thugs from her (knowing full well who she was this was this is the same event as in Railgun but not the Index anime) it happens on July 19 the day before he met Index. In the Index anime he tried to save her from some thugs not knowing who she was. This meeting is mentioned in the LN and happend on June 17, over a month before Index shows up.

... you're talking about the starting scenes of Index, right? Because during that particular scene, that was him saving the thugs from her like in the LN, not him trying to save her from the thugs.

It's essentially the same scene, nothing major was altered...

...And no, we don't talk about that Railgun! It never happened!

Actually it was correct before, index anime first scene is the LN first scene.

But the one you're talking about is not about Touma saving Mikoto from thugs, and it's not on June 17, but about a month later.

Although I don't remember if the novel mentions the first meeting. The whole thing might be incorrect.

But even if he is mistaking the info, I think he was talking about that scene we saw in Railgun, not the opening scene from Index.

I was wondering, have Mikoto and Last Order ever met in person in the anime or in any of the other medium?

Though really this isn't the place for me to make such a speculation, I suppose.

I watched the episode. Her reaction (or the lack thereof) is really strange if you consider how serious she was about the radio noise project. Especially because it's Last Order, a younger version of herself. It certainly calles for some kind of a reaction from Mikoto, but there was none. That whole scene felt off-kilter because of it.. I guess it was just a poorly written part.

Also I read the same part in the novel:

Well what exactly do you expect her reaction to be other than stunned?

You have to consider the situation surrounding the radio noise back then when she doesn't know anything, compared to now when she is more aware... Enough to have noticed Awaki trying to do something that might restart the experiment.

Then you have to consider what is the scene that is unfolding in front of her.

And lastly, Mikoto was not the same girl she was before when she found out about the project.

Everything: Anime/novel/manga of Index and Railgun are canon and happen in the same universe.
