Does JC Staff have a bikini mandate on all their production schedules?

I knew Kuroko was going to do something insane for her swimsuit, and yet I was still shocked I'm surprised she didn't just go with body paint

The whole drama bit with snake girl dragged the atmosphere down a bit, though it seemed like they were setting something up with her brief interaction with Misaka. I'd rather she remain as a side character for the lols, we already had enough emo moments with Saten

Konori wins the ep by default. Even the sponsors agreed with that eyecatch

The Biribiri/Touma moment at the end was gold. I thought he'd walk in on them during the shoot for some reason, but this was even better. Too bad we won't get a reaction shot from this, seeing Biribiri light up like a Christmas tree would've been sweet

yeah, it seems that event didn't happn yet. I'm willing to bet they'd make separate episodes to connect Railgun with Index. Just to fill up the slots lol

lol yes. The saving moment of this episode and probably the only thing that made me laugh (besides Kuroko's choice of swimsuit)

Overall it was an average "cooldown" episode. I really hope things start picking up again in the succeeding episodes, or at least make things more enjoyable. The preview looks promising, we get to see a familiar face in Index

Geez, those young folks nowadays ... That was a hommage to one of the most famous movies of all times: Stanley Kubrick's 2001: A Space Odyssey

I guess I'm too young then. XD I have no idea that it was a nod to 2001: A Space Odyssey.

That 2001 scene made me lol, as did the Kurobikini and the snake bit. For some reason, Uriharu being totally facinated made me smile.

But the big winner of the ep had to be the end, Touma watching her on the big screen.
I had the same thought as Freeeter, that he was going to walk in on them or something, but this was better.

A nice fanservicey ep as a cooldown, I wasn't really expecting anything more, so 8/10

This episode is purely fanservice.

Childish Biribiri + Wrong buttons + Academy City Broadcast = WIN.

This episode is hilarious!

Ok episode fanservice .

First , i was like "Nooo Birbiri why you didn't take the frills !!!"
But finally the end was epic win !!! Touma saw it too !
As usual , for Kuroko's lingeries (but it's so wrong with her flat chest )
Wow , virtual surroundings which can be reality ..

So next episode , they'll show us the girls in the previous episode and Komoe is back !!

Nice fanservice episode. I like it, especially the group photo with curry.

BTW, is it just me, or the art style look slightly different from the previous episodes? IMO, they look...thinner.

I'm glad that JC didn't ruin the episode with pointless tentacle fanservice. It's amazing how things change when there are not perverts around (except for Kuroko)

But it was in the end when I began to laugh like mad.

Everything is better with Touma.

Nuff said.

It was much better than I expected. Extra points for the totally random 2001 reference, the induction cooking and the snake.

Even though it was a cliché swimsuit episode, I really liked it.

Best points:
Uiharu patting the snake
Kuroko's "strange" whirls in the changing room
Misaka's final scene - if Kuroko knew what she missed, she might attempt a suicide XD

Would have been a 6 without the Touma ending. Touma for the win.

The fan service didn't even make up for the horror that this episode showed us. It was just plain bad. It was a complete filler and a waste of my time.

The only good parts were the gun shot sfx and Misaka on the big screen with Touma watching at the end.

WOAH WOAH WOAHHHHH HOLD ON HERE.

*Pauses episode at 4:11*

Before I even continue with this episode. 11-14 or however old these kids are going to be swimsuit models? Loli? Especially after seeing a picture somewhere *cough* with kuroko practically naked wearing strings.

That's like, wtf offputting to the max.

EDIT: Ok, it wasn't so bad. But seeing a flat-chested, boney loli with wearing string was very off putting indeed.

I guess that every episode onwards are all Anime Original.

Touma being cut out from the previous episodes was so that he can still be in this anime

Why not? Kids buy swimsuits too. Though I have to wonder about the kind of parent that let their kids wear what Kuroko was wearing. Or worse, what she wanted to wear.

The question you should be asking is 'do they even know?'

Well, a good thing I expected nothing from this episode. If you set yourself up for failure, the only way left is up. As a result this episode was surprisingly entertaining.

Next episode we get asphalt girl, eyebrow girl and... Komoe? Now this I am looking forward to.

Well, the swimsuit company requested middle school students. This was in the choice of swimsuits. Therefore, there's a market for it among middle school students. And I don't think they're all as unsupervised and financially free as Kuroko.

Conclusion: lots of parents are perverts buying bits of strings for their kids to wear as swimsuits.
