She was going berserk. She wasn't thinking rationally. You can see her go full out throwing all her power at Accelerator. I'm sure when you utterly want to destroy someone...you couldn't care less who they were. You just want them defeated.

I think the problem is that YOU know he's Accelerator, but SHE doesn't. From her point of view, out of the all the people in this city that she met, NO ONE [except Touma] was able to come out unscathed from her attack. She is Ranked 3 out of 2.3 million people and she's proud of her power. When she can't defeat someone with her power...of course she would be surprised.

Spoiler for Comparison to the manga:


-------Sorry post getting long------

tl;dr: She went berserk. She wanted to kill the guy. She wasn't thinking straight. She doesn't know what Accelerator looks like and has never seen his powers before. She's rank 3 and she's proud of her power that has allowed her to defeat so many people in the past [except Touma, but he's an special case].

Seeing another person [who she doesn't know] be able to deflect her attacks are surprising for her. The audience on the other hand, may or may not know who Accelerator is. How surprised you are depends if you knew who he is and his powers. Mikoto in my opinion, was genuinely surprised and it's justified.

Whether you think it's genuine or not is up to you, I just wanted to explain my point of view of why it's justified and have no mean to cause conflict whatsoever.


----Side Rant----

The problem with a lot of people is that they KNOW who characters are....they KNOW the ending due to outside sources [aka Index series]. Now everyone needs to put their feet in Mikoto's shoes and understand that she knows ABSOLUTELY NOTHING about ANYTHING. She only knows the stuff of what we've seen in the RAILGUN SERIES and not the Index series.
Like I said, I thought she knew he was Level 5 (but as I said that might not even be the case either) and that she doesn't have to be thinking it rationally in order to not be surprised. So no, that isn't my problem.

As one who knows both Index and Railgun to a certain degree, I think contributing to the Railgun S episode discussions will be a painful experience. Posts get deleted, spoilers get thrown and all kinds of shit happen.

My god, this is like a warzone.

...No kidding?

But since they fight using their powers almost exclusively... sucks for Misaka. She could use that superior athletics of her to try and run for her life if Accelerator ever got serious.

Hm.. now where have I seen that?

Basically, he feels her up. She even shows him how to do the dirty trick by using railroad track.

He doesn't even take his hands out of his pockets and clearly he has no interest in her in the way since he WAS going to kill her until the clones stopped him. If anything he gets off from dominating others and gloating.

They also weren't touching, that picture is misleading. He was near her, sure, but they never touched.
Don't take everything so seriously.

I think that people should stop speculating about Accelerator ability based on this episode. it will just make your argument invalid.

about the picture, they barely touch lol. dont take it too seriously

A rough episode for Mikoto. Sadly in terms of her tactics she might be even worse than the clones in being able to deal with this guy. It's not surprising, when you are that elite amongst the elites relying on your ability to solve problems is natural. The clones are already the underdogs so they fight like it. This had to be a shocking encounter. Touma was a challenge to deal with for Mikoto in the first season, but he never felt like someone impossible to take on. At least Mikoto felt like she could possibly win with the right tactics. Against Accelerator she's dead without the clones stepping in.

It was something watching her just outright snap and go all out. Sadly going all out didn't get her very far. That's not someone she can fight head on.

You have a point there. The clone at least tried to detonate a mine under Accelerator's foot after making a guess as to what his powers are. Granted it turned out badly, but it was still a legitimate tactic.

Mikoto on the other hand used her railgun after witnessing the rail tracks being repelled. She was just asking to be shot by herself.

I would say that in that fight, Accelerator analysed the whole situation more so than Mikoto, despite him being casual and not pumped up. He correctly pointed out that the iron sand were being manipulated by a magnetic field made by Mikoto's discharge of electrical currents. On the other hand though, Mikoto was just raging and raging, throwing out attacks that are more and more powerful to try to break Accelerator's "barrier", not knowing that there is no such barrier.

Well, Mikoto's always been the innocent level 5... Besides, she's never come face to face with another level 5 before (as in fighting). Having a clone of yourself murdered in front of you... Being angry and shocked, I don't think she was thinking straight. She's also very emotionally susceptible from what I've analysed of her character. Instead of panicking, she focused on her rage instead. She's never been beaten before (except for Touma), and her Railgun had never ever failed her before. Besides, as someone mentioned above, I think Mikoto actually didn't realise who Accelerator really was, at least for a little while.

On the other hand, the clones share memories via the network. They've been killed 10000 times, so they're bound to come up with better and better tactics. That was the plan for the level 6 shift exp anyway. By sharing memories, they also share skills and learn faster- collective learning.

crazy episode....
never expect Railgun can be this tense....
how Accel-san overpowered Railgun.... and how those mass clones appeared to save their onee-sama...
another highlight is how Kuroko stayed up late till morning because of waiting for Misaka
and some 'sisters' flashback with touching description about outdoor environment

finally we can see frustrated Misaka... She can't deal with Accel but she can stop the experiment for sure...
let's just wait until that 'certain person' come

You do know that the clones most likely have already fought him many times already, right? Just going by their numbers alone means that many have already gone through this. We also know that there's cameras everywhere which the clone in the last episode was talking through so it means they're sharing information so the next clone can go better.

Misaka was going in blind so of course she wouldn't be able to do much.

Finally got around to watching the episode. I have to admit, it's a wonder what music and voice acting can do for a scene; the "formal introduction" Accelerator made to Mikoto felt way more powerful here than it did in the manga.

I always thought Accelerator powers were too... how do you say it? Buffed? Over powered?
It felt like fight between level 5 and 1 because of how one sided whole thing was. I really can't see anyone but Touma beating Accelerator since he cancels any kind of power. Otherwise this dude is simply untouchable what makes him kinda boring and everyone else look pathetic.

Painful episode to watch. I'll give it a 10/10. I actually liked the moment she had with her friends. That was also painful to watch. It didn't break the mood in my opinion. In fact, it reiterated how alone Mikoto is because she can't rely on her friends for help. They would be crazy enough to face Accelerator if they felt it were necessary...

The battle was short and sweet. I thought it was a little too short, but it made for some great AMVs. Mikoto got completely defeated by Accelerator who didn't even need to try. Accelerator really is way too powerful... The fact that his vector-manipulation is set on auto-reflect isn't exactly nice either, but it saved her life.

BTW: I am still not 100% sure that the railgun was too difficult to reflect right back at her. I think the railgun was slightly too powerful to reflect back exactly considering how strong it is. That's what I got. I think he would have to "try" in order to reflect it back to hit her... It could also just be that he was toying with her...

Mikoto is very very lucky that Accelerator was stopped. She owes her clones for saving her life... even if they were only making sure the experiment wasn't affected negatively...........

Accelerator toys with his victims way too much... we saw that last episode and this episode... He really doesn't respect others' power... I loved seeing him animated. He didn't laugh that much... awww...

The scene with the bloody clones grabbing onto Mikoto was a "little" disturbing. It was excellent. I feel bad for her. J.C. staff really did an excellent job this episode. I really appreciate what they were doing. Episodes 5 and 6 were the real start of this season. I'm loving all of it though.

In terms of what we've seen so far: it looks like Accelerator> Mikoto> Mental Out (probably)
