Tell me /a/ why did you like it? This show is terrible.
there's like lesbians and shit
Setting is cool, also TouMAN
Because Saten. Deal with it, turbonerds.
Don't forget the suffering.
Fuck off, I couldn't get past the first fight scene on the original or the knock-offs.
It was good when it focused on the sisters arc then went to complete dogshit when it went to filler
to be honest i only watched it because the girls are gay and the males get very little screentime.
But some parts where fappable.
Go to bed Nagai
Railgun is terrible, except for the sister's arc.
Index sucks until WW3 then stays at a readable level after that
Misaka is life
I watched it for Saten.
Season 1 was interesting, but season 2 was shit.
Was someone talking about my show?
We didn't, we liked the manga.
It's haremshit with powerlevel shit, what did you expect? Think next time before you instinctively watch something to join the popularity bandwagon.
The slice of life segments between the incredibly boring and long shonen fights made it worth watching.
I watched it for this cutie
Sorry Kuroko, Kamachi tried but Miki loves his money too much to make a series about you.
Do you realize what the ratio of shit to tolerable is then? Why even bother? There's no reason.
I want to like it but the dialogue is too shit.
Highlight of the first season was the angel fetus, crazy shit for people who just expected lesbians. After that it was men.
Second season peaks at the accelerator fight then drops into the abyss.
>Not liking Civil War, Battle Royale, or Dragon
Acqua's arc could have been good if the translation was better.
>liking Nagai's slice of life segments
>implying this wasn't the peak
For me the story becomes great from pic related onwards. Shit gets realer than real.
We had the same reason
I liked/like it becuase it was my first anime I ever watched.
Also the action scenes and the here and there upcoming dark mood are really appealing to me.
(Toma is a gamma fag!)
Avignon had a mediocre villain. The writing and individual events were nice though, we had based Tsuchi and Touma had an interesting strategy against Terra.
>up to this day kuroko haven't learn about the sisters
>oh wait she is written off the LN
>not even in other othinus realities kuroko exist anymore
Kuroko a shit
Pretty much. Both seasons turned to shit once the first arcs were done.
Way too much "OISHII" and Saten being a useless slut as well.
I'm not seeing anyone getting punched.
So no, it's not the peak.
Not much was lost, but fuck I'd take her a thousand times if it meant Index would take her place.
Kamachi.exe is secretly stocking up on Kuroko novels, biding it's time until the other programs gain awareness, to start.... JUDGEMENT desu no DAY
>she is written off the LN
As long as she stays an integral cast member of the anime and any future adaptations I'm happy.
Don't hurt on Touma, he's suffered enough...
I watch Index in the hope that it will get good (on episode 14 of S2) and Railgun for Kuroko, Accelerator, and Last Order. Saten and the other girl are boring as hell, I don't see why they're so popular here.
Terrible fit; not effay; wud not fug
If they animate Index III she won't be in a single scene.
So the Adriatic Arc then.
Prepare for disappointment.
Invasion Arc after that is good at least, though still butchered like everything else in the anime.
Negro plz, Saten has style
Saten has good tastes in LNs.
Cant read the anime, because in oh great germany i cant find a fucking store where to buy them. But in the animes he is just a fuckign retard as every other Harem Boy.
Since Mikoto ditches her in every scene.
If Kuroko wasn't such a crazy cockblocker this may not have happened.
Sluten please go
I quite enjoy her comic-relief presence.
Guess you mean read the LN?
It's not translated into German or English anyways as far as I know (which sucks for me as well because those are the only languages I know).
Baka Tsuki has it translated. Translation is sporadic in quality from 1-16, then is great 17+.
cant read the mang ofc*
Ah. Well Railgun manga is good. Index manga has good art later on, but is pretty shit in terms of following the story.
Only Touma that's any good is Railgun Touma and LN Touma. Anime Touma can fuck off.
>Uiharu's dress in the bottom panel
What kind of person would let their friend go out dressed like that
so this is just like Japanese X-men with like cute grils ja?
Even Misaka gets minimal screentime. If they don't compress the volumes too hard it should cover Avignon, Acqua and Battle Royale. She'd get a sweet scene in the Acqua arc though.
One who enjoys looking up her skirt?
Yeah, she might have a cameo when Mikoto avoids and hides from her, but she will not have any lines or proper appearances in Index ever again.
>this is for you moot
what the fuck?
Season 3 in terms of Misaka would deal with her discovering Touma's memory loss and not much else.
tbh I've fapped to this so many times. Also see >>100304213
I love it when she wears the frilly tops. It's cute and seeing her bare shoulders makes my dick rock hards. Bottom right is nice too. Fuck, season needed way more Saten.
You're forgetting cute boys.
Nope, maybe like 2 or 3 of those fits are ok at the most. Probably shops at fuckin H&M
Humor anime Touma is great though. Compare the meeting between him and Mikoto in Index and Railgun.
A slut that wants herself to look cuter.
I totally forgot that that even happened. Does it ever become important?
I watch it for the threads on /a/.
It prompts Mikoto to realize she's in love with him, which motivates her actions for the rest of the series up to the current point.
Shit. I guess I'd better keep watching.
Also Touma calling her from Europe to ask weird shit.
A shame Railgun is probably ending with the current arc, It would be hilarious to see Touma asking Mikoto to infiltrate a subway in England without giving the readers any context.
>I don't see why they're so popular here.
Its generally agreed that the anime butchered most characters, so if someone is popular odds are they're talking about the LN/manga version.
Not sure how that scene will go. Alot of it depends on the interplay between Mikoto and Touma emotionally, not alot happens visually.
Same thing happened in volume 5. Mikoto had this long internal scene in the LN where she realizes Touma doesn't actually think of her as that important after he says he doesn't care if she dates Unabara. The anime just has her look down for a second.
unless we're talking about Index, I'm genuinely interested to see how they minimal Misaka screen time in Railgun
Well we do have a bit of time before WWIII. Kamachi might be able to squeeze in one more arc before Mikoto goes full Index.
Is this the Raildex thread?
Just wanted to say new chapter of Index manga looks pretty dope. Oriana vs Tsuchi was drawn incredibly well.
Also Himegami ;_;
Is this the month of suffering?
There's also the time when Touma ditches her for Baggage City.
Well they could have an arc about Kuroko doing something while Mikoto is off with Touma in WW3/NT
But she's my wife.
>that feel when the Index manga is the only one with a chance to cover volumes past 13, and there's still possibility of a late Deep Blood/Angel Fall arc before that.
That only lasts a few days.
What, do you think Mikoto gets involved in crazy shit every single week like Touma does? There's a reason there's such a huge gap between the second and third arcs of Railgun.
Kamachi pretty much just has a small bit of time left before Mikoto becomes part of Index's cast full time (as opposed to part-time). That's probably the only chance he has to give her just one more solo adventure before New Testament.
You have so many variations of Biri to choose from and you pick Original Flavor?
There's the gap between WW3 and Freshmen, though all Mikoto did during that week was mope i'm pretty sure.
LOL epik Hime-who? meme xD
Fuck you, she's one of my favorites.
>Not primarily choosing vanilla
I mean, don't get me wrong. I like strawberry and cookies-'n-cream too, but you really just can't go wrong with vanilla.
The gap isn't that large.
Again, Mikoto does not, in fact, get involved in crazy shit every waking moment of her life. She's not Touma. She doesn't have his misfortune. It would be unreasonable for her to get involved in some crazy plot immediately after coming home from Russia.
Original Flavor master race.
>Not choosing Crippled Cream
The oil in that shit's indigestible. You'll be shitting oil for a week.
B-but they taste good, they're the bomb.
What's this about?
Have fun with those orange stains on your boxers every time you fart.
She still gets involved with a lot of shit.
Liberal Arts City, the Shopping Mall Demonstration, and all the Railgun arcs. Not to mention there's also a huge space while Touma is hitchhiking around Europe where AC is fighting Russia. You could easily make an arc about someone sneaking into AC trying to destroy it and Misaka having to stop them or something.
>and there's still possibility of a late Deep Blood/Angel Fall arc before that.
Unlikely. Chuuya seems committed to writing around any plot holes the omission of those arcs causes.
Just this chapter, he had Himegami attacked because she found one of Stiyl's rune cards on the ground.
>around five other "threads" with no replies in the catalog
Are we being targeted again?
Think he's trying to say Mikoto isn't Touma and doesn't constantly do shit.
But I mean, everyone in Raildex is constantly doing shit. Gunha's teacher says he's always out and about doing saving someone. Kakine and Mugino are doing jobs all the time. Accelerator is constantly protecting his loli, and from the existence of the Accel manga he did that more often than we previously assumed.
Misaki is lazy of course.
Come play with us, Biri.
Come play with us.
Railgun S sisters arc was awesome.
Except for that first episode and the random clover one in the middle.
Yeah, that really pissed me off.
I go in expecting awesome Mikoto terrorist action, and I get 20 minutes of Saten looking for fucking clovers.
She's been in a couple incidents in September, but that shouldn't be considered the norm.
She seems to have plenty of free time across October considering the frequency of her appearances, most of which have her doing absolutely nothing.
First episode was alright, but I'm mad that based Yomikawa got shafted when she was being badass again.
Even Misaki runs a spy network in the School Garden.
Hmm I actually liked everything about railgun but when it came to index I barley made to the ep 3.
I fucking hated it
Almost dropped the entire season because of it
Gunha, Kakine, Mugino are always practically looking for trouble.
Accelerator's the "main plan" so of course he gets involved in shit.
Fact of the matter is, though, none of these characters get involved in shit EVERY FUCKING WEEK like Touma does.
It's only natural that they'd generally get some extended time off. Mikoto's not like those others. She's not a wannabe superhero or an assassin or the main plan or the reference point of the world. It would be ridiculous if she got into the sheer degree of trouble that those others do.
She is the source of the MacGuffin of Crowley's plan though.
I only watched first season of Index. It kept me pretty entertained. Touma vs Accelerator was pretty boss and stuff.
Lost interest in 2nd season halfway through.
Lost interest in both Railguns at some point.
Supposedly any Electromaster would do as long as the clones developed enough powers to make the network
Halfway through the second season is the Adriatic Arc, which is probably the worst arc in the series (or second worst behind the Sports Festival, depending on who you ask).
>Touma vs Accelerator was pretty boss and stuff.
>Not watching Ralgun S Touma vs Accelerator
Yeah Season 2 picks up again with Invasion of Academy City
Hey guys remember who this is?
Random Amakusa magician?
>Next arc about vampires
>Himegami still irrelevant
Touma vs. Accel fight in terms of quality kind of goes Railgun Manga > LN > Railgun Anime > Index Manga > Index Anime
IMO anyways. LN is more detailed in terms of Touma's thought process, but Railgun had more GAR.
>Himegami's blood vessels literally explode with blood, spreading it everywhere
>no vampires show up
This is some bullshit.
Vampires don't exist anon
First off, the cross is still on her so maybe that mitigates her power some.
Second, it's not like there are vampires IN the city. By the time they'd even gotten wind of it, the blood was probably cleaned off already.
I think it's kind of funny what Kamachi did
>Introduces secret race of powerful beings that no one is quite sure whether or not they exist. Incredibly good at keeping hidden for thousands of years.
>Obvious route is to introduce them anyways
>Never show up
Maybe they've gone extinct.
Cute Amakusa that people thought was Itsuwa for a while.
Index 2 has the misfortune of covering all the shit arcs, being rushed as fuck (like 9 novels or something), and generally being full of quality due to an inexperienced animation director.
Railgun has the misfortune of being full of boring ass anime-only filler, changes to canon, and recovering the Sisters arc, which you might have lost interest in due to knowing the ending already.
Index 3 would pick up where the series starts getting really good.
> but Railgun had more GAR.
It's Biribiri vision, it's ok.
They're kind of irrelevant by this point anyway. I mean, compared to the Holy Right, Fake Magic God, Magic God, Angels and Pillarloli, they seem kind of low tier by this point.
>they don't exist
OH SHIT MAGNA, WHAT ARE YOU DOING
And they already got it from her. At this point her main value to AC is propaganda for students and inspiration for scientists.
oh wait she's not Itsuwa?
Railgun anime messed some things up though.
>Dat facial expression
but his name isn't magna. that's the name of the spell
Their main thing would be infinite life force and immortality but even that has already been used in other characters
No anon Itsuwa even shows up in the anime
>Vampires don't exist
NO, NO, YOU'RE WRONG
THEY DO EXIST AND THEY'LL SAVE INDEX
When will she get out of jail?
I wonder if you can make a Vampire Esper.
Vampires are descended from Cain in this series, but i'm not sure if they're magic or not.
Infinite life force and immortality's low tier compared to pillarloli, angels and motherfucking magic god.
I don't remember this...
>infinite life force
So, mana battery? Have we gotten a character who happens to be the Blood Type O of magic?
Sasha is similar, since Fiamma wanted her Telesma.
Go watch Endymion it's like a Disney film.
Yeah but fucking everything is
I guess they wouldn't die but they'd be exploding all over
Maybe this is what happens to that girl from Endymion
When Laura decides she needs another agent close to Touma, uses her contacts to get her freed in exchange for informing to her about Touma's activities.
Mjolnir, although she's not infinite.
So what are LNs, anyway? Are they like short novels with pictures or are they mostly manga with a few more words or what?
Short novels with a few illustrations
Fuck off, please.
Novels with pictures basically. They're pretty short, early ones are generally around 300 pages while later ones are around 400.
That's not living your life correctly anon.
railgun touman > index touman
Pictures yes, but not all that many.
Alright, guess I'll give em a whirl.
it was a moeshit show that at times shit actually hit happened.
TouMAN > TouMAN
And I see the comedians are in this thread too.
It's cool, Christmas cake wins the Accel
Where can I find the LN or the Manga (translated in english if possible)
why is there a lot versions of the sisters arc?
There are two and then adaptations of them
Reminder not to feed the trolls.
Because it's an arc that's important for both Railgun and Index (it's needed in Index for Accelerator's development from it and it's needed in Railgun for Mikoto's development from it), so you can't really skip it in either series. Plus it's basically the beginning of Crowley's keikaku.
how does he not remember her? there was a whole index arc about this
This is before they met.
The anime is good. The manga is boring shounenshit.
LNs > Railgun manga > Index Anime > Railgun Anime > Index Manga
sucks that showing shoulders in public in Japan isnt cool.
Mini-skirts in the middle of winter? fine fine no problem. tank top? NO WHY WOULD YOU DO THAT?!
That's great no more cockblocking and there's no possibility for her to fall for Touma.
Raildex is Naruto Tier shit. Don't bother.
I'm a sucker for Kuroko and Misaka. I enjoyed the whole ride.
>implying it's not true
>>oh wait she is written off the LN
Don't they have series of Railgun LNs?
I thought I heard that they were doing that.
Railgun got two LNs but they aren't a series. One of them doesn't feature Kuroko either
That fucking sucks.
Kamachi is hoarding Kuroko for himself
Just like with all the other throwaway characters in the series, amirite?
Well Kuroko appears it in, just not a lot and she isn't really involved in the main story.
Nah, the throwaways even get mentioned. Hell Saten is in NT9.
>and the males get very little screentime
What are you, gay?
Railgun manga Touman the best
What are some other shounen or anything else with MCs like Touma, that absolutely obsession nutjob idiot that must meddle positing a slightly warped world view of 'justice'.
...I'm sorry, what?
>You will never have a harem of Kuroko, Uiharu, Saten, megamilk, and those two annoying anime only sluts
Season 3 when, /a/?
Hurts to live. Fuckin' JC, they gave us that shitty movie instead.
supposedly never is js is to be believed
They said they have no plans for it but if you support the series they might get to it eventually.
It's pretty good if you watch anime for jerking-off. If your expectations on anime are beyond porn for nerds, then it's fucking terrible
They said they have to butcher something like 5 more shitty rom com LNs before they get to it
I'd rather have a reboot with another studio
10 years until WW3!
>After the movie and Railgun S, the anime will stop for the time being.
>"In the original manga, the Daihaseisai episode is still ongoing and the To Aru series itself is still growing. The anime will stop for the time being, but if you support the series in the other media, I think another possibility could arise. You just need to patiently stick with the series."
So they're holding it hostage unless people release more Saten fanart?
Or they are just planning to announce Index 3 on April 10th when the 10 year annivesery happens, and this is just a way to scare up some extra sales.
Fuckin' JC Staff. I hate those fuckers so much.
I watch it for the threads so I can put my knowledge of electrodynamics to use
I started watching it because I saw an image with the clones that caught my attention. I mistakenly watched Railgun 1 expecting it to be there. I wasn't disappointed though. I ended up wanting Index III more than any other 3rd season.
If they had reduced the scope of the story they were trying to tell and just focused on all the shit that happens in the sister's arc, just being about misaka and her clones and accelerator, I would probably like this series.
Pretty much everything else about it, especially the magic/religion side of things, is terrible.
Magic Side Arcs aren't very good early on, and are truly awful in the anime.
They get more coherent later as all the plots coalesce.
Basically the issue is, the Science Side has the Sisters as a core, so it's coherent all the way through.
The Magic Side doesn't get a main plot to focus on until the GRS arc. So all the Magic arcs before that are awful.
