Although I can reply to that, let's not go there since it's LN territory and off limits for this thread.

I finally got to watch this episode, and overall, I'd have to say it was rather solid.

There weren't any really important parts left out of it, and even if there were a few complaints over Kuroko's 'fanservice' with her lingerie- I'd be wondering what shows they've been watching to consider that scene fanservice. She's wounded with bandages, and she can barely walk. I'd have to say that the scene was more of a "Look at how badly hurt she was!" then anything else.

I'm a little disappointed it didn't have the entire fight from the Light Novel, but I guess with only two episodes it won't happen. Oh well, I can live with that.

They're just extremely picky and want to complain.

Internal monologues : = They want to be told that teleportation had its weaknesses, approach, etc. And the angst.

We were told this during Railgun, and rule of animation is 'show, don't tell', which was already strongly hinted when Awaki rolled herself back with the luggage bag.

Injury : = Injury doesn't look painful, I wanted to see some more blood and Kuroko struggling back.

We knew during S1 that gore and blood was never going to be as explicitly expressed in the anime. And with the injury's severity downplayed, the need for the 'difficulty coming back to the dorm' scene was also not necessary. Tit-for-tat.

Accelerator-Last Order extra dialogues : = you know which one I meant.

That was such a long dialogue scene. Not that important, since the whole point of the Accelerator scene was to show how he is now, and his own version of the 'fukou-da' he's experiencing. No need to over-hammer the point.

Misaka's beating fodders scene : = boooo only a Single Railgun shot.

Hardly necessary. The whole scene was just padding to the Awaki/Misaka confrontation anyway and to make Kuroko realise Onee-sama was lying.

The last scene with Awaki escaping = Misaka OOC, no explanation, blahblahblah.

Spoiler:


Could it be better? Yes. Personally, I didn't think Shower Scene Mk.III was necessary. But the complains of 'not enough monologues' is extremely premature in my opinion.

This must be when Index becomes a secondary character that disappears for the remainder of the series.

I could at least give this episode a few points for Kuroko fanservice.

Long? More like incredibly short. J.C. Staff left out the part which clarified that Last Order still has her memories Accelerator, which was important as it directly connected to episode 20 of the first season. That, and I wanted to see how they would animate Last Order quoting that one heroic line Accel said and the face Accel made when he found out...

Just wait the next week, you must know already "who" will steal the show at the end.

And I'm waiting to see him destroying blinded people illusions .

I do think Last Order still having the memories will be subtly told eventually, anyway. It's a point, but not exactly a vital one.

As for the heroic line thing, there's next episode after all.

It's not perfect, but I don't think the episode was 'horribad' or 'novel raped!' just because there were these omissions.

I'm wondering... Is Touma getting some lose change from the Anglican church for taking care of Index ? He doesn't seem to be penniless having to get MUCH MORE FOOD for Index.

As far as I know, he isn't getting any extra money-

Touma has always had 'enough' money technically. It's just that he's so unlucky a lot of it goes down the drains.

now that you mentioned that I wonder. .. . .... but it looks like all his money comes from his parents. But that would probably kill his bills.... but then again maybe that's why Touma is so fix with sales.

I don't have any problem in this episode aside from omitted bystanders.

A) Magic
B) Anglican Church's funds goes to Touma's debit card.
C) Anglican Church's funds goes to Touma's hospital insurance.
D) Both, B and C are right.
E) Aleister's funds goes to... well you know what I mean

NOTE: This doesn't means Touma will get extra money.

Well, in the novels (previous ones, this is NOT a spoiler) it said students get scholarship grants depending on their Esper levels - Touma moaned about it once since his parents use this as the reason to not give him extra money.

Before Index came he was living alright, even if on a tight budget. But now he's constantly cutting back due to Index + Sphinx.

Don't forget the collateral damage his room suffers time to time and the bad luck which causes him to do all his homework and buying the same reference material again.

the room and his hospital bills are probably back up by a certain up side down person in a test tube.

Ugh, after reading that excerpt of the Accel/LO scene in the bath, my initial liking of this ep dropped a little. I hope that talk does make it's way into the anime somehow. Could have cut out/shortened those useless Sparky/Lesboko shower/shopping scenes for that instead, maybe even the Index scene. Hope for Accelerator awesomeness next week!

I didn't even read the novel when watching the episode, and that was already clear to me. Last Order talking about Accelerator's ability was kind of a giveaway.

That, and the anime only hinted at the memory erasing, but never confirmed it. Like I said, nice fluff scene, but hardly essential.

Episode could have done with a bit less shower scene though. It's like this series is lacking in fanservice, so while pile up on it? Though when I see the reactions on other sites, I understand why. Sex sells, after all. Even if it's animated. It's a pity more relevant scenes have to be cut out to increase the profit of an anime these days.
