Physical pain is not the only way one can suffer.

Let see how the fight between Accel aka One way road vs Touma AKA One punch Kid version 2.0 meaning through Mikoto's and Imouto vision to there eyes TouMAN is sparkles while Accel is pitch black darkness

Accel childhood is a mess to begin with to be experimented by a certain(s) researcher/mad scientist which have stripe tatoo on his face , i find it disgusting that he could kill off so many people (Clones)

God damn they really just killed that ridiculously awesome clone, just like that. RIP Misaka Clone.

But what I really wanna know is why Misaka just left her clone like that. Sure she had another lead but she wasn't even sure if it would lead anywhere since she didn't even know what it was. Wouldn't she have wanted to stay with her clone to learn what experiment was going to happen? If it were me I wouldn't have left that clone out of my freaking sight!

I actually asked the same question. How is "I'm off to participate in an experiment!" not at all interesting or relevant? I mean, she IS a clone! Why would you not want to follow around your maliciously produced clone and learn their every secret?

I was actually leaning more towards sad and horrified when they escalated in this episode. I already miss the clone.

This episode is well-executed. First, the calm before the storm. Then, 9982 said goodbye to Mikoto as she knew she will die as planned in schedule of the experiment. Later, the demise of 9982's fate in the hand of Accel. Man, it was painful to watch her dying slowly.

And the episode ends with a villainous ending tone, which I like it the most in this episode.

You know what? Making the Imouto more human does affect our psychological view on her dying, after all.

Coz she's more interested in the whereabout of the lab, where she can learn more about the project and who's the mastermind behind it all. Plus she didn't have a single idea how horrible the experiment they are conducting is.

All of which she is more likely to learn by staying with the clone than by trying to follow up a lead of unpredictable value.

Then 9982 might have called off the experiment since it's their policy not to let anyone who's not in the know involved, like what Accelerator said when he saw Touma wandering around the site.

I'm actually more curious how Misaka can memorize that lengthy security code when it was spoken only once.

All Level 5s are essentially geniuses... Maybe except a certain one.

it the perks of a lvl 5 esper they can do mini second calculation on there powers , memorizing that code must be pretty mundane stuff to them

Then she could've waited until that happened.

Then it would be faster to do follow some other lead.

That's judgmental to a ridiculous degree. Writing about dark subject matter, no matter how screwed up it might be, doesn't mean someone has mental issues. And yes, it does have storyline relevancy in numerous ways (showing how ruthless and mercenary segments of the Academy City government can be, for starters).

I.... I can't say anything...

I don't remember To Aru can become like this... I think the first season isn't this tense as well

heartwarming opening.... we can see a nice interaction between onee-sama and sisters
just when everything seems good.... dat ending come!

Accel-san.... I don't know how much I miss this badass looking of yours
and 9982-san.... ugh... you deserved a better death

in the end, it's just like that death clearly ripped all my heart... left it in crumbles (when 9982 tried to get the badge then got crashed)
and when Misaka finally attacks... finally we can see a clear one-sided confrontation between Misaka and Accel...

watching this arc makes me remember... Sisters' arc in Index or Railgun clearly still the best for me (and maybe the only reason I like Mikoto and this series)

10/10

She didn't even know if it was an actual lead or not though. That's the problem.

I agree- just because a writer writes a dark story doesn't mean they have mental issues... Often dark subject matters are explored to contrast and better bring out the wonderful aspects of life in a story. Writing about dark subject matters is also often a great challenge for the writer and usually requires a great amount of resolve, determination, even courage to express themselves. Humans are often drawn to dark subject matters... And often stories that explore such themes touch the audience more directly in the heart than anything else. No matter what kind of life someone's had, no one on Earth has not known at least a little bit of suffering, I believe. It's something common we all share, but do not like to express in fear of being judged (what you said might even be an example- "mentally ill") and put down. It's hard to find such honesty these days; I admire those who can express such feelings we all share outwardly.

Well this is my take on Mikoto's situation... She's very much an impatient, hot-headed character. She spent the whole afternoon following the Misaka clone hoping that she would lead her right to the creators. But night came and Misaka still had found nothing, and only got dragged around everywhere. When the clone tells her that she's not heading back to the facilities, I think Mikoto's patience ran out big time. She wants to find out NOW, to take action NOW- and the most logical way to do that is to go off on her own and find out for herself. Being a level 5 (with a rather prideful personality), she's also very confident in her own abilities. Logically speaking, spending time with her clone only provided distractions and prevented her from finding out anything useful. The word 'experiment' probably didn't mean much to Mikoto anyway at that point- she wouldn't have thought anything of it for did not know the horrors behind it.

Mikoto is also someone who stubbornly persists once her mind is set on something. In season 1, I think she spoke about this as one of the main reasons why she reached level 5. In this scenario, she had her sights on finding out the origins of the clones- the creators behind it. And that IS her quest, until finding out about the level 6 shift project which completely distracts her because of how horrible it is.

Thus, due to the above reasons, I think it's more of a personality aspect.

The thing is, she's confident of her hacking skill than anything else, as long she can get access to a phone booth. Why waste your effort wandering around (she's been tailing 9982 the whole day without learning anything but frustration) while there's a better method to dig for more info? We know it's more sensible following the clone because we know what happens next.
