She's not really scaring me. I'm just curious as to what she will bring to the story.

Traumatized Level 0s, among other things, if this episode was any indication.

And the award for dumbest group of thugs goes to...

Well even so, that Shinobu still managed to put on a slick performance, but it really helps when you have that kind of soundtrack to help you out. It's funny that Shinobu bears such a striking resemblance to a certain other Shinobu that plays karuta and it's funny that both have the ability to scare the shit out of others.

I thought it was rather clumsy the way the story made Konori mention the "clone" rumor from just hearing about Saten mistaking someone for Misaka. They're not even trying to be subtle about it.

Well the first thug that went down seemed to actually have a decent thought process considering the situation.

No Saten, you are not just seeing things or overthinking and mistaken for someone else.

She should've followed "Mikoto" all the way.

It is time for her make a move that show the same determination like during that "Poltergeist" incident.

Saten never learns, does she? Still hanging in dark alleys even after all she's been through
Seems like she's the #1 esper when it comes to sniffing out money. The sounds she made were kind cute.

I had no idea she was also called Shinobu. That's a funny coincidence. The resemblance is pretty uncanny. She looks like a younger version of Chihayafuru's Shinobu.

Curious to find out how she's involved in the whole sister project.

I love how Saten wears street clothes... if nothing else one thing to look forward to is her different outfits every episode .

I cracked up at the onee-sama "voice collection"... and Mikoto warning Kuroko about trying anything while leading her down a dark alley.

I'm not a big fan of the ED song... disappointing since I liked both Railgun 1 ones. Ah well.

Otherwise so far this season has been perfect.

As for "fish eye", I think making her appearance less creepy was a good call. Manga has only still frames to work with, the anime can convey the same "aura" about her in more subtle ways.

The anime only showed her name in the end credits.

I only knew the name from looking it up. I haven't read the manga so I don't know if it's a spoiler or not. I'm pretty sure it isn't, given that it's apparently in the credits.

What is this you guys call "dead fish eyes" girl trying to do?

She provoked the group of gangs and traumatize them for what?

I wonder what is Touma doing meanwhile? Summer School?

Nice episode! I'm liking the pace of the series.

Did Uiharu and Saten wear different clothes each episode, don't remenber small details from the first season.

After watching I really liked Shinobu even without the fish eyes, she speaking "because" and "however" was awesome.

PS.: Feel bad for the "knock-off goods made in some third world country"

Yay, Saten was extra cute in this episode:3 Her sniffling might be a new category in moe
And when she was lying on the bed, it had such a strong fuwa-fuwa feeling to it. It strengthened my old desire for a dakimakura of her... I really hope they will release one with nice design, featuring only her. I'll definitely to order it!
I'm also looking forward to her future cute outfits~

This episode had much darker atmosphere. I find Shinbou especially beautiful, unlike in the mangaXD I'm glad they changed her eyes. Btw her power is really creepy.

Young Mikoto is adorable.
Damm busybodies in the alleyway.
Saten is a great dog. (That sounds so wrong lol.)
And the girl was smart of using people's paranoia against them.
Can't wait for the next episode.

I thought how Kuroko tricked the dorm supervisor was pretty damn clever. Creepy as all hell, but you can't deny it was clever of her... especially with how terrifying that woman could be.

Even Misaka herself mentioned that rumor once. I'm sure many pepole heard about it.
