Synopsis

Mikoto Misaka and her friends are back, investigating rumors across Academy City. Soon, Mikoto discovers something terrifying: horrific experiments are taking place throughout the city, involving the murder of thousands of espers. Moreover, these espers are far from just ordinary people: they are clones of Mikoto herself. Feeling responsible for their treatment, she sets off to put an end to the experiments; however, the forces opposing her are much more dangerous than she anticipated, and Mikoto finds herself up against some of the most powerful espers imaginable.

Toaru Kagaku no Railgun S continues the story of the Railgun as she desperately fights to put an end to the inhuman experiments that she believes she helped cause, her life dragged deep into despair in the process. There's never a dull moment in Academy City, but no one ever said all of them would be pleasant.

Toaru Kagaku no Railgun S (2013)

The first thing is first, 2013?! what a great anime to have aged so damn well. Secondly, the sisters are just the best as usual with the way they speak especially.

The story is a continuation of the main story and can be slotted into the index series at various points if you want proper order. I watched it after watching all of the index shows and it still works.

The art as I said has aged very well and is a super thing to watch considering its age.

The OP and ED are fun and the sound is great ...

Mixed Feelings
Quick take: In Railgun S, were treated to three really good storylines and good character interaction with the same animation quality from previous seasons. Pacing issues return and if you're watching the entire Magical Index universe, there are some episodes you may want to skip.

For reference, my watch order was Railgun-MI-MI2-Railgun S.

The issue: Railgun S and Magical Index II overlap. This normally wouldn't be an issue as I actually like seeing the same events from a different character’s eyes. However, Railgun S and MI2 portray the dialogue and sequence slightly different when it comes to the Misaka Clone/Accelerator arch. The overall plot isn’t different, but ...

While I mostly enjoyed Season 1 of this show, Season 2 has been a walk in the desert. Mikoto Misaka went from badass in the first season to a weak, weeping and depressed bore in the second. The whole clone story is a boring mess and they keep introducing side characters who are stronger than Mikoto. Not just stronger but WAY WAY stronger. Despite her being the third strongest of the seven Level 5 espers.

It's bad writing. Stay true to your characters. Don't make your hero suddenly weak - after having spent the entire previous season to show her strength - just to beef up ...
