There's nothing surprising, obscene or unnatural about those. It's something most very rich and influential individuals in the world does. Mikoto is rich, and buying expensive products is natural for wealthy human beings.

Rule #1 in the luxury goods market : rich people tend to buy/consume expensive things regardless of whether the product is really worth that much or not. The Wealthier they are, the more luxury goods with more and more expensive prices they will buy.

This is why most luxury goods, especially cosmetic ones, are sold at a price far superior to their production cost : because that's actually the best way for them to get customers (and profits).

I actually hope Mikoto gets out of her ojou-sama thing from Tokiwadai and just has a normal high school life later on. Touma's school can help her with that! 8D

Actually I wouldn't be surprised if Mikoto can skip grades. Knowing her intellect and knowledge, I think she can skip a grade or two, unless Academy City disallows that :I

If she were to skip grades, she'd be sent direct to 8th year+ of superior studies, writing thesis and stuffs like that.
Whatever. I don't think skipping grade is allowed in AC, or at least in Tokiwadai : why would they let a level 5 get away from their grasp that easily? The longer she is in, the more satisfied they would be.
Moreover, even if she were to graduate normally from Tokiwadai, the board of directors would never allow a treasured level 5 to waste their potential in a School like Touma's.

Hmm ... then, how about this proposition?
She loses her powers in some way (and got kicked out of Tokiwadai) and enrols a certain highschool after graduating from Middle school. That's the only way I can think of. Really romantic.

Why does "Level 0" doujinshi by Okara come up in my mind after you gave me that statement...

Anyhow, I guess Mikoto will always be a Tokiwadai for the entire series cause that's something not even Kamachi can change as that's one of her characteristics. XD;;

@Q34 of that questionnaire

Q34: Any plans after graduating from Tokiwadai?
A34: Well, I wanted to be a normal high school student. And if it is possible, I would like to travel overseas for a year or two. But I don’t think is possible to leave Academy City for such a long period of time…

I really want this to come true though personally =w=;

I think it would be rather interesting to see her out of Tokiwadai. I have a sudden feeling that we will see a time skip in the future.

Also I also thought about that doujinshi right about now. All it takes is coffee time with Misaki.

Mikoto vs Misaki = best Catfight and Yuri pairing.

Easiest way: She makes a deal where she'll attend a Certain High School in exchange for cooperating with schools/experiements as needed

Do they honestly still have a hold over what she does anymore? Specially considering shes becoming more aware of the other side of Academy city. They can't exactly strong arm her like they done with the other level fives. She is after all the most publicly pushed example of a level five.

It would actually be a better choice for appearances if she does attend a school like Toumas. Pushing the idea that level Fives are just like any other student. It's not like she needs to be aware of experiments for them to happen. Level 6 project comes to mind. Both of them.

A Kihara will do anything for an interesting experiment. I think that will do.

Ahh the classic scenario of throwing away a good opportunity (school/job/future etc) for the sake love that may or may not be requited...

Nah, point is people should realize that's what they want her to do.

I mean sure she could just go to a 'public school' like a certain Highschool, but she is going to take a hit for her education among other things.

Even at middle school level Tokiwadai is teaching University stuff, I can't imagine the gap in highschool.

But, I want her to go with Accelerator, Misaki or Kongou-san. Not some worthless level 0.
