To Aru Kagaku no Railgun

To Aru Kagaku no Railgun

Image

This is (what I'm claiming) a far superior Biri biri spinoff series of whatever that series was with that nun loli no one cares about. In terms of story chronology, pretty much the events that happens here falls parallel to what happened in the original series added with moments of Touma crossing paths with Mikoto. I'm in the process of hinting down the OP sequence as we speak.

Bah, this RAW the fansubbers used was terrible. Obviously they're aware of it and a better quality one will come out in a few days.

Any who, Episode 1 which is pretty much a solid introduction episode featuring new characters Kazari Uiharu (the one with the flowers on her head) and Ruiko Saten who thought Mikoto was stuck-up. Of course once Kuroko set up a get-together with the other girls (with her ulterior motive obviously doing......"things" towards Mikoto :twisted: ), Ruiko's prejudgments went away.

And then there was a bank robbery in which both Mikoto and Kuroko went utterly, TOTAL badass on them and captured the robbers! 8-)

The OP sequence appeared at the end of the episode:

I kind of expect of more flashy editing and/or action scenes at the latter parts though.

Having read the manga (what I could find, at least), I expect very cool stuff to come. 8-)

Is it safe to assume this series take place post-Index events, or are we going to have to go through the whole Accelerator thing again?

This starts earlier than the Index events, actually, you'll notice with some cross events with Touma (slight apparences, really). As for Accelerator, I'm not sure about it. I read the manga only to a point earlier than when that event started, so I wouldn't know how it was dealt with in the manga. It's certainly an important arc for Misaka, so I guess that, if it gets animated, it will be a shorter arc from the point of view of Misaka instead of Touma.

It'll be epic when it occurs, but Railgun is already epic.
