Perspective of characters have changed from Bell to Ais. Our viewpoint move from Bell's story to Ais's story both stories take place in the same timeline.

Railgun is kind of like My Hero, but with more CGDCT stuff added in, and in a less superpower dense world.

I know what you're thinking. "Who the fuck recommends two totally unrelated series?!" *ahem* That would be me. I also know there are those of you who are interested in seeing more of Shirai Kuroko's perverted antics, and that is actually why these two shows share similarity. They're both action shows, but there is a one-sided yuri between two of the characters here. Except one of them is a complete masochist with unrequited love towards a girl and the object of her affections does her best to let her know, SHE'S NOT REALLY THAT INTERESTED.

Both series are about superpowered children fighting against superpowered foes in a world of espers and science. The kids in ZKC are gradeschoolers rather than middle schoolers but are part of an elete force that combats esper criminals. ZKC is however less serious than Railgun for the most part however, often protrayed through the fact that 'the children' are bratty and abuse their powers a lot.

Both involve a person trying to do the impossible to save others. Both have incredible animation and storytelling.

If girls' power, friendships, teamwork, justice and love are your things, then A's definitely cannot be missed. Still, I recommend you to watch Nanoha's season one first in order to get a better understanding of the central characters. And you'll find that season two A's story development and plots are getting more appealing, while season three Strikers's story built up from the last two seasons and reached its climax.

Action-packed sci-fi that takes place in a futuristic, self-sufficient city with highly advanced technology, a city that at first glance appears to be an ideal place for people. In Raildex, Academy City is a city full of schools, the haven of the Science Side and the only place where people can develop psychic powers; and in Psycho-Pass, the whole of Japan is a haven for people who want to pursue their happiness with the aid of the Sibyl System. But underneath that wondrous looking exterior is a place with tangible darkness, controversial secrets, and a number of unpleasant truths that would shake the very core  read more
