I fully support the shipping of Saten x Misaka, but don’t tell Kuroko!
Welcome back for another week of awesome stuff with more Railgun S here on Metanorn! I can’t tell you how excited I am to cover this series, but I have a feeling we are going to have a few random filler episodes ahead of us for a while or will we just jump into the story with the other Misaka clones? I guess we shall find out today.
More super powered science!
Taking advantage over timy Misaka is bad! Damn these evil science types!
Saten-“You think I should invite Misaka to a love hotel next time?” Uiharu-“EHHHHHHHHHH!”
Last week returned us to the wonderful world of Railgun complete with Misaka kicking some bad guy ass, but with this episode we are trade in the awesome super powers for a bit of backstory with Misaka’s past involvement with some sketch scientists that you could say honestly took advantage of her kind heart and desire to help people. That said, the idea of evil scientists is really nothing new for fans of both Index and Railgun because both series have their fair share of those characters. So what is the deal with Misaka’s past anyway? For starters her power was originally going to be used to help people that suffer from various muscle diseases or Muscular dystrophy for short which is something I can easily relate towards because I also have a form of Musular dystrophy called Duchenne muscular dystrophy. I think the original goal was to use Misaka’s eclectic based power to stimulate the dead nerves to get the dead muscles cells to wake up? I have seen case studies like this one and here if you are curious to read more, but I mean in terms of plot obviously the scientist is into some shady stuff and us ultimately tricking her into giving them some DNA! I am sure we will get even more info on her past with each passing episode.
Extra fun with Kurko and Misaka
This was the best day of Kuroko’s life.
Watch out Touma wall-kun is aiming for your waifu!
Kuroko-“Who the hell left that banana peel on the ground!?”
Saten-“Hmmmm I must find the treasure inside Misaka’s heart.”
Hooray free money! I think Saten’s true ESP might be money detection because she was tracking down all the free cash cards that were hidden all over town and yeah the plot of this episode was kind of boring, but then again they are pushing us right into the Misaka sister arc really fast and that can’t be a bad thing right? I am curious to see how this season of Railgun ties into season one of Index! Yes you heard me correct Index does in fact play a role because the opening we see a quick shot of Accelerator who is wearing a black shirt which you could say is the evil version while the white shirt version is somewhat good version; however I wouldn’t really call Accelerator a heroic character anyway maybe he is more of an anti-hero type? Besides Saten randomly smelling for money all over town we got to meet a new character named Shinobu Nunotaba who appears to be a level zero? While she has no real power she uses her words to scare you into thinking she has this one shot ability and she uses lots of random English words, but yeah the story was kind of boring this week; however this is just a bridge episode that is leading us to the real plot next time.
Shinobu-“Is that fear I smell or your sweat?”
More Misaka next time!
