Railgun S 11

To Aru Kagaku no Railgun S

GG Kuroko. Your onee-sama’s gone now.

To Aru Kagaku no Railgun S

Even the ED agrees.

Heh, guess the show is really going to use up the entire run for the Sisters arc, judging by this pacing.

    I bet it won’t. It’s already 10030, 10031 is the one that dies on Touma and 10032 is saved. I think it will be 3-4 episodes max, as I assume what happens between Accelerator and Last Order belongs to Index rather than Railgun and doesn’t need to be covered again in here. Too much Accelerator is too much.

    Wasn’t it 10032 was the one with Schrodinger?

    Pretty much all the arcs are not as good as the Sisters arc in either Index or Railgun, it’s going to be tough to follow these up no matter what they try.

    Looking at the rest of the manga, I can’t imagine it will take up the whole series. My guess is ep 12 – ultimate despair, ep 13 – the bridge “fight”, ep 14 – Touma vs Accel pt 1, ep 15 – Touma vs Accel conclusion, and ep 16 – the two epilogue chapters. Leaving a new arc to start on ep 17.

    They kind of seem to be hinting they’ll adapt the Liberal Arts City arc, which would be pretty cool.

    This should take to around 16 or 17, per the manga followers.

    What’s next is from a Side Story Light Novel and NOT the Manga. It’s the “Liberal Arts City” arc. They referenced shopping for the trip in eps 1 & 2, so it was setup a long while ago.

    We might also get an anime-original filler episode in there. I know they want to get the girls back in swimsuits, somehow.

    Oh, so there’s another arc they might be putting in. I only follow the Railgun manga, but not the novels so I didn’t know.

    Was actually expecting Daihaiseisai arc, but that’s still ongoing in the manga…. guess we won’t have much Shokuhous :(

    Why just settle for swimsuits? They’ll probably take a trip to the beach and stumble across a school fair while over there.

    They already stated in an interview some time ago that Shokuhou won’t get another important appearance after ep 1.

    Why would they introduce Shoukuhou so prominently in the first episode and then not have her matter again throughout the entire rest of the season? That’s not good writing. yes, I know she’s a cameo for the folks who love her, but that scene played out that way in the manga because it was her major introduction to give us an impression in regards to her later actions. To include that scene, and then not GIVE her any “later actions” is not good writing. To do it in the first episode, where the scene is commonly set and things that matter are usually introduced, thus giving the impression that “this will be an important character later” reaches the point of actually being bad writing.

    i believed the next arc is the Liberal Arts city Arc.

    @Wanderer
    Shoukuhou only gets cameo because the the Daihaseisai arc in the manga hasn’t been finish yet.

    Getting into the reason why Misaki was introduced regardless of not playing a prominent role in this season of railgun would get into spoiler territory but it was done for a legitimate reason. Yes, it was a stretch story-telling wise to introduce her this season if they werent going to use her (goes against everything we know about chekhov’s gun rule) but introducing this season serves a purpose.

    A Chekhov’s Gun that doesn’t go off and isn’t a Red Herring is bad writing. Excluding Misaki from this arc would be the best course of action – that scene has no relation to any other events so its timing could be shifted however the scenario writers wanted. They didn’t do it; instead, they made the scene even more prominent by placing it in the first episode. That’s just lazy and not well thought through.

    i say its better than teasing people with #6.

    It’s not bad writing, especially given the narrative structure of the Railgun series. Railgun is setup very much as a “day in the life” story. We get most “days” major events. Mental Out’s interaction with Railgun makes perfect sense in the context of an upcoming school trip (they’re both students there, after all) and as to a nature of the world.

    Considering the “nature of the world” and “reason certain actions haven’t happened”, Mental Out’s appears also goes to what Mikoto came to realize in ep 12. There is a very nasty side to Academy City. This is why Mikoto can get away with, well, massive property damage.

    I can bet that had they withheld Shokuhou until a third series, we would be getting people going: “so there’s been another level 5 at Tokiwadai all along, but conveniently she never appeared until now – that’s some bad writing”.

    To be honest, I think only those that already know the character and had expectations in place for her are upset by this. For first time viewers, her appearance seemed natural enough as part of setting exploration and as contrasting Mikoto with a more power-hungry level 5.

    The Sisters arc is very good, but I don’t think I’d call it the best. It has a nice plot and action, but most of the characters involved haven’t had much development yet. The later arcs where they have are even better to me.

    CHASER!

    Maybe someone should make a parody of Misaka kicking the vending machine and sends it flying like Kyousuke.
    Or maybe just like being thrown by Shizuo

    I thought it was just a marketing move. Wasn’t Misaki’s appearance in the anime to add to the hype from her manga arc for her much-awaited appearance in the latest volume of New Testament right afterwards?
