A Certain Crocodile Tears Railgun

To Aru Kagaku no Railgun

My favourite humor part of the manga finally gets animated.

Yes, that’s Kuroko banging her head on the table. That reaction of hers was so fucking hillarious and just goes to show how dedicated she is to her onee-sama.

But…. I’m sad Touma got replaced out this time. This was one of his awesome parts in the manga. Oh well….

Also I would like to express my utmost appreciation for the anon’s doing vol.4 of the Railgun manga. You guys are on fire (3 chapters out overnight!) and I’m loving it!

    am i the only one who thinks that this show gets better the less Touma there is in it?

    @spider Seems so… Most people I know think that Railgun Touma is cooler than Index Touma.

    But in this case I must agree: I really wanted to see the first scene of Index from the BiriBiri´s point of view.

    Well, however: On the other hand I´ll certainly enjoy the next week: It´ll become Kuroko´s CMOA!

    Now I checked it again, isn’t the manga version is the first episode of Index anime?

    I’m getting curious about this mysterious missing Touma scene now that everyone’s talking about it. Hmmmmmmmm….

    Maybe the animators heard about all the Touma hate and decided to have him removed from the show indefinitely

    which would make me sad. :(

    I think having differences between the Manga and Anime makes them feel fresh so I don’t mind not seeing Touma in this part. What makes up for it was seeing Misaka use her powers in a different way and Kuroko banging her head on the table.

    I dunno… maybe the reason Touma got all the hate was because he got way more screen time than the titular character – Index. Dunno, if that’s actually true, that’s just my two cents, though…

    I’m happier without Touma.

    Kuroko’s head banging on the table was the best part!!

    Yes, the head-banging was funny, but I’m disappointed that they left out Kuroko’s “I think I just witnessed something I shouldn’t have seen…”
    I wonder if 2ch complained too much about Touma being in Railgun
    Also, yay for translations!
    (About the manga) Any idea when will Tree Diagram be destroyed? According to the time line it should happen around the events in ch 25.

    Kuroko bangin’ reminded me of the movie that just came out last week (A serious Man).

    I kept thinking out loud the phrase “We’re gonna be fine” every time she banged her head.

    And of course No Touma = Totally fine.

    We’re gonna be fine.

    I’m okay with Touma pre-memory-loss.

    He’s actually pretty cool.

    But post-memory-loss, he’s just a giant douche. The one semi-cool thing he did was cover it up so that Index didn’t get upset. That was cute. Everything else, though, man, what a clueless jerk. >(

    Personally I still don’t get all the Touma hate. He’s a douche? How? He’s and ass? How? Really really don’t get it. The only thing I get about him is that if he just shut up more and do what he does, it will be golden. All his talk is annoying but it’s part of the shounen righteousness.

    Anyway, it’s to the point where it seems that Touma hate is the next cool thing.

    LOL at Kuroko’s face in 3rd pic!

    Touma was in this part?
    Ohh I better read the manga then!

    […] befuddled me that the recent string of episodes should feel acutely dissatisfying. I remember crocodile tears episode 8, stuffed with moe and yuritasticism (did I just invent a word?). It had my friend in stitches, but […]
