^ Yep, and the few ones who displayed their full potential were all peculiar cases among Level 4s (not counting Kongo)

Nice I guess Kongo got a few points on my book with this.

For those that didn't noticed, raw is already out and js06 translated it (look on 4chan). The scanlation should be out in few days.

So the cat (named "Dog" by n. 10032) is the only witness, I am curious just how much information does it have.

With the nature of this series' universe, it's difficult to say if you're serious about it or just throwing a sarcastic comment

Looks like either Saten-san experiences memory conflict (meaning that memories are merely subdued by Mental Out) or Misaki's powers are starting to wear off.

Well, there is a reason why Misaki is #5 among the Level5s, she must have her restrictions and limit.

Probably both.

Or just Misaki was in a hurry and only quickly erased their memories without filling the gaps.
It's like in computers when you search for specific patern and erase it. It's obvious that if she did it like this, without reading and analyzing those memories, a lot of links/conections/references (or how do you specify it) remained.
It's the same how she remembered Kongou, but not the person who was with her. Or now that she remembered gekota, but not the person who liked them.

I still bet on the lack of time, when the Kihara guy contacted her, she said she will have to do a lot of memory erasing on her friends, she could mean it time-wise, so they would not notice the gap.

I just came back from there. js06 rocks...

Anyway, Kongou is stronger than I thought... that was a fast but cool fight, and next comes her posse, this should be interesting.

Uh? Definitely not, that's not what psychometry is... They are going to use the cat to psychically find Imouto.

Who knows , psychometry is (as they said) used to extract any kind of information from basically anything, it's not unusual for fictions to incorporate "thoughts reading" among the set of works you can accomplish with it. Also a notable anime example of the tropes is the LV.7 girl from Zettai Karen Children who can use psychometry to read thoughts.

BTW : is someone who's able to launch a Radio Tower in the stratosphere really only a LV.4?!! ... I doubt even 100-mecha-arms-Kuroyoru could do that >.> (I even doubt Misaka could with her current feats)

Edit : not obligatorily thoughts ... just something in its memory (not sure if cats can really think that much)

Indeed. I think she might be as advanced as Awaki, meaning not too far from level 5... If she can throw stuff into the stratosphere, she could even take down a satellite like tree diagram.

Maybe the only thing holding her back is accuracy.

-_- you do know your underestimating Mikoto on her ability.

Sure Kongou shows destructive power and Awaki got range, accuracy and large mass but for all that matter. Awaki got good controls that she doesn't need to touch it while Kongou is still restricted in her ability.

Mikoto's ability is very versatile and has lots of works and actually powerful. It even show she is smart enough to counterattack Meltdown and understand it just by seeing it when she and Mugino fought.

Mikoto is strong.... but just don't be constricted in thinking about the other gar/hax people in the tamniverse. Just think on the science side only. Mikoto stops a nuke, can call storms from storm clouds and can even shut down a whole city.

I know I might sound some stupid troll somethings and it because I always had a fight with dumbfuns in 4chan but Mikoto is strong and smart.

Actually it has to with how the esper use the ability, Accelerator uses the atmospheric pressure in order to control wind for example.
Also, she has already a versatile use for her powers and enough screen time an her own series.

The lack of range doesn't mean she can't become a level 5 (Accelerator doesn't have range after all)

The impression it gave me is that if Kongou had better power control + aim (what I called accuracy) she could expand a lot her power applications. A simple that comes to mind would be flying, if she can put the ejection points anywhere she could place then on the air to propel herself (of course, without accuracy it would be suicidal.)

I think Awaki's problem is a similar one, she cannot go all out without going out of control, but I think both have already enough power output to qualify for level 5.

I think you don't get me when I say range. I mean on range on what you ability can do and not the range of your AIM. All level 5 has a category but none of them can be actually called into single use of power while all level 4 are constricted to one type of use on their power. It's just variation of strength and range for it. But for the range of level 5. It became versatility. From defensive use of ability to offensive, to short range and mid range and even long range bombardment. Their range on how to use their ability is so huge compare to restricted use of level 4.

The Tokiwadai girl whom Wannai is familiar with is an animal-type psychometrist. She can extract information from animals, and is at least Level 3.

Oh, Shiho Sannomiya.
Also, offtopic, but I'm falling in love with the Zettai Karen Children anime series. It's like it's a predecessor to Toaru Kagaku no Railgun.

pretty much this. we hardly ever see mikoto being more badass moments much because she's just inherently badass. since she's the main character, even if she does something special with her powers, we're pretty much used to her versatility so it comes off as nothing that special because we know of her other feats.
