Railgun S 09

To Aru Kagaku no Railgun S

Dammit, the epic fight between Mugino’s “Meltdowner” and Mikoto’s “Railgun” got pushed to next week. Damn you and your forced exposition episodes, J.C. Staff!

To Aru Kagaku no Railgun S

R.I.P Nunotaba, at least you went down honorably for a better cause.

    Nothing to worry, she’s just sleeping…

    She actually disappears entirely from the manga after that…. god knows what hell they inflicted on her.

    Muginos Meltdowner is getting stranger with every episode… I don’t remember reading something about that shield she used… also I remember it being described as white beams not green/teal

    I hope they give some resolution to Nunotaba’s fate by the end of the anime.Maybe something anime-only that will be considered canon, like what they did with Harue-san. If I remember correctly, she got to appear the manga.

    I imagine Nunotaba will get an anime-only epilogue by arc’s end. I have faith in Nagai not to leave a character they were actively following for several episodes to a completely unknown fate.

    No matter how much wrong JC Staff does or the insanity of Sunrise, nothing beats Funimation. Recommending their shows with Anime News Network in the trailer itself,
    1:17 “That dude is from a different anime!”
    “What’s wrong Kodekah?”
    …. No words.

    Yeah, the shield is pretty weird. The whole reason Mugino is below Mikoto is Mikoto’s versatility. Mugino has more raw destructive power, but that’s all she can do with it.

    The shield has appeared in the manga and novels as well, though. And it’s still the same energy, only the beam’s trajectory is a spiral rather than a straight line and it’s being put out at a certain point. It’s crafty on Mugino’s part but does not add much to her versatility, especially outside combat.

    Actually it’s more like she loses control way too easy and it takes more concentration to use her Meltdowner. I think it was mentioned in LN 15 and somewhere during WW3.

    Actually to correct all this misinformation. It was said in the manga in the manga during this arc that the rankings are based upon usefulness for research. It’s not based on strength, versatility or power. That said, they do conveniently have the strongest and second strongest level 5’s in rank 1 and 2 respectively.
