Ever since the first episode i have like her character… I have to admit, the Esper powers these anime has is awesome. I loved the railgun idea. The whole changing vectors was just amazing, i was so giddy. I loved the sciences and math subjects so I was just amazed at the detail they are giving this… The whole plasma scene was awesome, though he would have to give it a charge to make it plasma, just condensing and heating it wont work ;b.. The only thing else i wanted was to see that thing go off, dang such a waste…
This past episode was done well, i am glad there back. I love the whole Faction thing, nothing better then not knowing you started a faction ;b
There probably will be an anime original arc to end the season, after the Last Order arc – since there is no good way to just end the season. (Sort of how Shana S1 ended) If they just do Volume 5 as the next arc before the anime original one to end the season, they still have ~12 novels and 2 side story novels left as material.
That’s a ton, another 2 seasons atleast if they kept the pace.
I’ll concede that the anime is pretty shoddy, but only because of a combination of the mediocre choices of directer and screenwriter and the messy nature of the first few novels in the series. A second season has potential to be much better, especially if they give it a different director. And that’s not just wishful thinking since the DVD and Blu-ray sales have so far been good enough on just the first volume for a second season.
I’d probably give the second season a shot even though I’m so disappointed by this season. But a new director & screenwriter is a must. Never mind the fact that the plot hasn’t progressed in like 12 episodes, but I hate how EVERY episode grinds to a halt with lame and way too long dialogue. The pacing is just terrible. Are the source novels like this too, or are they botching the anime translation?
Personally, I enjoyed the episode because it gave a different side to things.
-Misaki can be quite moe and tsundere.
-Touma and his occult group are the villains?
-Indirect kiss with a hotdog…I’ll never look at it same way.
-Accelerator becomes a daddy/ big brother in the next episode?
I’d say that there would be a good amount of those who have a propensity to enjoy studying physics would probably dislike/hate Accelerator’s ability, as I do. There’s just a little too much freedom of interpretation of the word vector here. So the ability to “alter” it is very irksome to me. This is also most likely due to how I was taught to interpret what vectors are, even if another were to read the exact same definition as me.
That was me being polite about how much I hate Accelerator’s ability. It’s a shoddy attempt, and “changing vectors” is stupid. Horribly stupid.
