F**k yeah! One of my most awaited shows this season.
The first episode starts off solidly. There’s RAILGUN action, Index cuteness and clothes-destroying right hand! Index’s expressions somewhat remind me a wee bit of Konata and her biting skills are endearing. The loli teacher should satisfy all those rorikondomome out there. As for Mikoto? I’d railgun her, if you know what I mean ;).
OP by Mami Kawada and ED by IKU are solid pieces, though both somewhat remind me of their previous works with Shana and Hayate the Combat Butler respectively. Even the choreography for the animations remind me of Shana as well, not surprising considering it’s by the same studio, J.C. Staff.
As I’ve read the manga, I’m a bit surprised at how fast things are progressing, but it’s not a negative thing actually, and in fact, it leads to the action much faster as we’re already seeing the flame guy in the show. Then again, there’s quite a lot of interesting things in the series from what I’ve heard, so the show should have a wealth of material to adapt for it’s run.
