That mech kinda reminds me of the Objects form Heavy Object. A lot of shooting this episode with science.

Got to see some esper abilities too. For once, the episode didn't feature as much as Accelerator as usual. Besides, there's actually quite a decent amount of powerful espers besides him in this show. Like I also mentioned before, Antiskill has their hands busy this season.

Didn't know there's battery on that neck thing.

There's still one more girl in the lab?

Gun fights.

Paper planes? Changing outfits with papers?

It seems like the girls from the lab went to get one of the SISTERS that caught captive.

So now the question is will Accelerator be in time to save the girls or will something else save them.
I was somehow expecting Misaka to make an appearance seeing as on of her clones is involved.

Anyway to much action in this episode.

There were a lot of guns involved in this episode and it's about time Antiskill deals with those DA justice guys. It would be interesting to see Accelerator in action in next week episode.

A lot noname anti-skill members were shredded to bits, still no idea if should even react to this.
Scavenger, another dark side group that hates adults ... And the example on how Aleister was building the city. Waiting for "fight" with Accel.

Looks like the battle between Anti skill and their traitorous former allies the DA is finally starting. Last Order sure has become quite responsible. In a way DA is the dark mirror that Anti skill members can become if they let extreme ideas get to their head. Yomikawa though really is shining within the series due to her skills and experience. Funny how DA's fallback plan ended up buying time for the hunters to arrive. The scavengers sure had some rather interesting abilities. A solid ep that featuring Accel sparingly showed that Anti skill is not as weak as people think when led by their veterans. Looks like DA are on their last legs caught between the cleaners, anti skill and the fast approaching Accel.

Yomikawa the star of this episode.

Waiting for Accelerator battle.

The great kind of edge. So hyped for Accelerator to arrive on the scene.

Sigh and facepalm'd at the flying projectiles that cut through the shields and people. You think if they had something that stupid they'd at least have armor piercing bullets.

So...that one girl’s power is a complete rip-off of Yomiko Readman’s power from Read or Die.

The battle between DA and Anti-Skill sure turned bloody really quickly when DA unleashed their spider mecha and its arse-mounted gatling gun (LOL), but in doing so, it did give enough time for Scavenger to arrive and they showed just how much stronger they are compared to DA's mecha.

With all that happened in this episode, Yomikawa is the true MVP, making key decisions that helped her team and she also rescued the Misaka clone, but lost her grip on her after one of the DA corpses slid into the Misaka clone, but Esther arrived to save the Misaka clone from any further injury.

And at last, accelerator is now up and moving again and after a cute moment with Last Order about pomegranates, he's now off to the same factory where Scavenger are at. I have a feeling Accelerator is going to have a fun time here... =3

Lot of action for this 5th episode, many soldiers actually died. Intriguing kids appeared on the battlefield, with some strong powers eh, I hope Accelerator's going to join it, 'cause there's no way the others could survive the fight

You know what ? I'm actually done with this show. As a matter of fact I'm probably done with this franchise as a whole. Why am I even watching this ? Who's fighting who ? Who are the good guys ? Who are the bad guys ? Why are they fighting ? I have the same feeling I had back when I was watching Index III. The story is either too convoluted or executed in such a poor way that is unable to properly follow. I'm done with it, I get no enjoyment out of watching this franchise anymore. First two Index seasons were really enjoyable but I have no idea what the hell happened to it along the way, what a shame.

This episode makes me realize how empty the show feels without Accelerator as the main focus. Not really feeling it with the three-way showdown going on. Shifting the spotlight to AntiSkill doesn't seem like a good idea since they've always been a running gag since Index. At least Accelerator will be back in action next time.

Anti-Skill was slaughtered, almost, totally. Damn DA!
Who the hell is Nakimoto?!

The power of the paper girl is more like the power of a Devil Fruit in One Piece, of the Paramecia type 😅.

”The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result.”

...was a phrase not known to the combatants seen in this episode, as they continued to unload clip after clip at full auto to bullet-proof shields.

Why has he no spare battery which is always charged?
Why has he only such a small battery on his choker?
Why is there no backup battery on his choker?

Why the fuck isn't the choker full of batteries so he can get at least through the day?

This has bothered me ever since he got nerfed.

Yomikawa kicking ass and all an out battle between Anti-skill and DA was amazing.

Some agonizing screams would've been nice. They didn't seem to show people actually getting mauled, just the blood splattering and running all over the ground.
