I shed a tear everytime a Misaka sister is killed. (I think I ran out of tears, LOL)

And I still hates Accel, no matter if he "doesn't want to kill" or not... (even if he looks cool)


BTW, epic ending there...

This episode was the kind of shallow pretentiousness which ensures that I will never pick up index...cheap emotional manipulation trying to justify itself through some "deep" or "significant" message. Don't fool yourself, guys: this shit is entertainment through and through.

Countless works of "art" have managed to take me to the brink of tears, but this series will probably never manage it. Because in the end the singular thing which speaks to me in any work is the author's final, ultimate intention, and this series has never managed to show me anything which hinted that the story has something to say on that level.

I don't mind mindless entertainment, but I'll only take emotion which comes from the heart. Something manufactured will be unsatisfying, no matter the technical skill put into producing it.

Fiction, imagination, and authorship are strange things. Through the power of symbolically represented worlds, single, irrelevant humans are able to wield power over entire fictional realities. Naturally, these worlds create the path to fields of boundless freedom and temptation. In the end, I prefer to properly face reality. Though fiction can make people gods, the things I most want to hear are the simple/important things, which can only be passed from a human to another human.

Wow, that's a whole lot of nothing-to-do-with-the-episode you got written there.

Umm... What are you even doing on these forums then?
Go face your 'reality'! Or does your 'reality' involve being a forum troll?

Calling the transformation of 9982 from "newborn" to clueless girl to experimental subject as "cheap emotional manipulation" is a bit insulting, both to the production team, but also to those who were able to grasp what the production team, and Kamachi by extension, wants to portray. I also notice that in your elaborate speech, I assume that you are not interested in the franchise to begin with.

Too subjective and a bit grandstanding. Railgun isn't trying to be a piece of art, for one.
Again, this is a sign that you're not really investing anything in the series.

This is not Hiyao Miyazaki. This is not 5cm per Second. This is not Ookami Kodomo Ame to Yuki.
Sorry to disappoint you.

And immersion in a fictional world is a sin? I disagree. A person can still be capable of absorbing and being absorbed into a fictional world whilst keeping oneself planted firmly on the ground that is reality.

He's not a troll, though he's being a rather stereotypical literature snob here.

^ Well, we don't need the likes of him here. We've long accepted the fact that anime need not literature critics.

This adaptation so far has been extremely well done. I'm very impressed. Better than the first season.

Ah, I didn't think that would count as a spoiler since it's such general info. Thanks for the answer, Ili.

Don't mention it. I think Chaos actually means that it's off topic though, which it is so since you've seen it I'll just delete it now.

To make this post at least partially on topic I'll just say that I really liked how they changed the ED for this episode. I really like the much more somber tone. I hope they keep it until the end of the Sisters arc at least.

Actually it does count as spoilers here because the rule is that if it isn't already covered so far in this or the previous season of Railgun Anime, it is not allowed.

Dude, if you think Railgun uses cheap emotional manipulation, the only thing you won't consider manipulative is a cell metabolism presentation. AKA, boring as fuck. Every medium uses different techniques to stir an emotional reaction from the audience - it's necessary for the intermingling of the audience with the story and characters. The problem is when it is used cheaply to manipulate the audience without real feeling or care put into it. If the author doesn't feel it, why should the audience?

Saddly, thats not his situation so....

Guys, don't feed the troll.


Some people like him thinks this is shit but at the same time call cheap/cliche yuri drama as art.

Lets put that aside.


I guess next episode will feature Mikoto trying to fight Accelerator but as the preview shows she will fail so that will end fast, so what will fill about 22 mins??

Maybe they plan to add screentime featuring the other 3 girls?

Shoosh, no one insults yuri. :P

They may be continuing to the aftermath afterward. I bet it will give them more than enough material.

Ah, so I was not mistaken. I dropped the first season after a few episodes, but this one has me hooked.

Was Mikoto always so harsh? I feel as if we are getting more of her harsh side this time around.

Being a romance junkie, I want to see more of Touma. I don't think canon (as opposed to doujin) Mikoto is interested in Kuroko that way, lol.

Mikoto isn't attracted to Kuroko at all. Kuroko is just her overly obsessed friend that she can rely upon fully even with her "quirks" that anger Mikoto every so often.

Lots of people want to see Touma(And I support Misaka's love for that lug head) but I believe we'll have to wait a bit longer before he shows up in this season.

With the introduction of Accelerator and the Sisters, does this mean the end of this season leads into Index?
