What a cool way to introduce your main character. Seriously though, they used some badass music and also had a badass entrance for Accelerator.

They didn't waste much time introducing his relationship with Last Order either. I'd say it's definitely recommended to watch the original Index before watching this to get a better experience from this. There's some info dump and recapping about the Level 6 Shift though but it's very brief.

As the show is about Accelerator, he also draws in the dangers in from around him. Pretty cool and thrilling episode.

Eh, I think you can (considering Railgun S2's first half covered the parts about the Level 6 shift). There's one episode from Index Season 1 that you should watch before this though since they just used some clips to recap it.

The Raildex series is known to have independent stories of each other even though they are set in the same universe, however, you watching Railgun should help with a lot like as to who Accelerator is and why there are more than one Misakas.

Well checked it out whether it won't be another trainwreck like Index 3.
I really like the series but Index 3 was really bad in my opinion this looked a bit rushed as well so i wonder if this will be better than Index 3 which just didn't do the series justice.

First episode but already in the filler zone, huh ? Well it's not necessarily a bad thing since it is used in this case as a reminder that

Also, Accelerator reading Heavy Object ? Why not !

Art is okay-ish and CG used for vehicles is similar to those in Index 3.

Not a bad episode in overall. The opening showed at the end is a banger.

After the total fiasco named Index 3, I'm putting my hope into this. I mean, Railgun already proved how much better it can get.

First episode was pretty badass :D
Kokoro did nothing wrong.

You should if you want to see his backstory with Last Order....
well that's just my opinion.....

It's very mediocre so far. It's not like Railgun which went slowly from slice of life to badass battles through investigating into a layer after a layer of unique urban mysteries of Academy City, it looks like it's just Accelerator + cops beating up random bad guys. There's hardly any lore to it except that some generic underground criminal/terrorist organisations exist.

I don't know about anyone else, but that was an enjoyable first episode for Accelerator. Just a good reintroduction to where Accelerator's character is right now and his relationships with the people around him. Last Order was cute as always, being the cheerful one wanting to throw a party.

Dunno who these antagonists were supposed to be, but apparently from reading comments they're anime original? Well they served their purpose, which was to show how utterly badass and powerful our protagonist is :) it was so obvious how easy this was gonna be.

Accelerator wasn't gonna let anyone take Last Order's belongings. He's kind of like that older brother who was fighting off bullies for his sister's sake but too embarrased or prideful to admit it.

I actually like how during the final 'fight,' they actually wrote a line of dialogue to showcase how different our 'hero' and essentially this series will be compared to "A Certain Preachy (LOL) Level 0" and the Railgun.
Can't wait for next episode :)

At least its not as bad as Index III but then again this is just ep 1, compared to DanMachi's this was pretty average.
Anyways will keep up with this so long as it doesnt get as bad as Index III.

That was much better than i expected. First of all, so strange to see to aru series with this kind of animation, very different take and not in a bad way. This was a filler i'm pretty sure, don't remember this stuff happening, pretty weird if i say so, but for introduction it was pretty nice.
Still too early talking about anything as the story is very questionable in this one, but that was a good start.

Heavy Object, other work from Kamachi Kazuma. I think it is novel volume, pretty sure there is no manga, only one shot. Also there is anime adaptation.

Good KAMI-SAMA, the Opening sounds PERFECT. Visually a little less though if you look at all the previous Index/Railgun Openings.
I somehow got a MASTERPIECE feeling (just the beginning)

Animation looks nice and this is the best intro episode you could give to someone that never watched a To Aru project.
Hopefully the fanbase grows even more now because Accelerator is BADASS.

Now thats an impressive way of making an escape. Nice to see the chemistry between Last order and Accelerator again. Hmm high tech companies secretly developing secret weapons seems to be a common problem for anti skills within the city. Seems the ice gun is potent in both offence and defence. To think that the culprits were high school students though. Last order sure is trying hard with her surprise. The verbal jabs between the hunter and her target sure was amusing. So their target was merely genetic material huh. The fact that Accel actually spared his opponent showed just how much he had changed so far. A strong first ep that had a surprisingly good balance of comedy and action in the form of the fight and the chemistry between last order and Accel.

was Accelerator reading Heavy Object? lol

Also all of this just to steal some cookies.

Seems interesting enough, because it shows what happened to Accelerator after his accident. But I hope not every episode will be like this. I somehow have the feeling it will be.

Watching this after the railgun (without watching index) and it fine.
Although not knowing about "when did Accelerator got shot?" and "who is this mini Misaka" is strange but whatever. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

good start. hopefully there isn't much more 'oblivious misaka wanders into danger' type stuff. not a fan of that trope. magic index has more than enough of that. even railgun did.

It's not as good as Railgun but it's not terrible like index.
The logic and the fight are quite bad, but the episode look like filler so at least there's hope for the following episode to be better on that part.
The relationship between accelerator and last order is good tho, and she is fun.
Still quite mediocre for a first ep.

Cringy edgelord returns with his own series.
Thank God I have no expectation for that, but will still watch it just to avoid potential plot holes for Railgun 3.

That falling scene was pretty cringy and the random ass shot zoom in. I'm usually all for fanservice but that had me rolling my eyes.

I'm really hoping they don't resort to using Last Order as a plot device to handicap him every time.

As for this episode, eh, at least got to see more of the clones.

Wait wait hold up!! I haven't watched this episode yet and haven't started the series but I thought this was um.. independent? But here I see people talking about Index 3 or whatever?? Is this some sort of spin-off? What should I watch first before diving into this???

It was average on the animation compared to the one at the end øf Index S2, but it's great to see my boy Accelerator back! The story so far is good, but in terms of animation, it went downhill for me.

An average episode for standards of JC staff, will not be a story that passes to posterity (because all the interesting arcs correspond to the Touma), but it was much more fun than the entire of index 3
Accelerator is a character that only by his presence makes everything look much more epic and entertaining.

shame Accelerator visually got the short end of the stick (while DanMachi got all the focus) from JC Staff. everything looks flat and stiff especially the coloring compared to Index and Railgun

other than that, the episode itself was decent tho...better than Index 3 so far at least

Instead of simply yanking Yoko back from where he stood, purple-haired guy literally just walked forward and threw himself in front of the wall where Accelerator was about to bust through. It was such a big brain move that I couldn't stop laughing throughout the rest of the episode.
