The espers of Academy City are classified into six levels, where "Level 0" lacks power while "Level 5" possesses an overwhelming amount. Of the several million espers residing in Academy City, only seven of them have attained Level 5, and ranked highest among them is the one known as Accelerator.

Toaru Kagaku no Accelerator focuses on the strongest Level 5 after he protects the cheerful Last Order at the price of much of his power. Recovering at the hospital, Accelerator has led a relatively quiet life until he ends up saving the life of Esther Rosenthal, a mysterious girl carrying a photo of Last Order. Unfortunately, Accelerator now finds himself dragged into a new conflict in the form of a sinister organization called Disciplinary Action which plots to use Last Order for a dangerous mission. Now that they have set their plan into motion and are in pursuit of the young girl, it's up to the world's most powerful esper and his newfound companion to protect Last Order and defend Academy City in the process.

Preface: The adaption of the Accelerator anime is a great improvement over the adaption of the Index 3 material, whether it was through improved scheduling or having a manga to base the artwork on, JC Staff has made a notable improvement in its adaption. None the less this adapt suffers from different issues, despite being a good adapt of the source material the series itself cannot be good if the source material itself is weak. This review will expand on why the anime was fairly average, and what fans of the Toaru series can expect from it.

The ever expansive Index franchise has led to numerous adaptations in the form of full seasons, spinoffs, OVAs, and even movies. Accelerator, the strongest level 5 Esper in Academy City, should be no stranger to anyone who is familiar with the franchise. Yet, spinoffs can be risky to pull off. Considering a character like Accelerator, that really is no understatement.

Written by the brainchild of the Index franchise, Kazuma Kamachi made this piece of work as an original spinoff. Its emphasis revolves around the dark side of Academy City. Unlike Railgun, the show takes on a darker storytelling route although the overall style will feel familiar. read more

<LA hears Nobuhiko Okamoto's cackling Accelerator sound>...TIME FOR THE ANTI-HERO's main story!

So what's the plot to To aru Kagaku Accelerator?...well Accelerator become embroiled in a conspiracy with the Antiskill renegades with the DA who have connections to the higher ups of Academy City, where one of the higher ups being a researcher finding his own way of making Level 6 Espers using robots and the dead, it's not until Esther Rosenthal voiced by Yurika Kubo read more
