THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
I almost forgot how dangerous Accelerator can be when he's pissed off. It looks like this episode had him deal with more troubles that have started by the other espers. I have some mixed thoughts on Esther though..she just doesn't appeal to me as a character this season.

The guy with the lolipop in the background has such a strange personality....

Estelle trying to gain her apprenticeship with Accelerator was funny, she was trying hard.
Accelerator seems to attract annoying girls, or maybe stubborn is a better way to say it.
But with his personality you need to be stubborn to get close to him.

She asked him to be her Shishou, after seeing Acce's attacks have kindness.

New machines appear. Replace?

Oh so that girl who was still in the lab was the friend and main experiment. She got one of MISAKA.

Military lady, who woke up, believes what she said. Family of controlling death.

So one of MISAKA was to make a complete form of that girl.

Acce. became crazy when lab guy mentioning about the past. Death controller is somehow in another place for her goal.

Accelerator was crazy in this episode, just like the previous one. You really don't want to piss him off.

Estelle wants Accelerator to be her master. That scene was funny.

Very few things can get past Estelle's eyes it seems. Still she is right in that Index's attacks were scaled back so as not to kill the girls. Her request to be Index's pupil combined with how cute reactions while doing so was quite amusing. Even when faced with such formidable enemies Estelle's determination to deal with the situation is admirable. While Index looks like he's having fun duelling those machines im quite curious to see what Estelle is enacting with her ritual.

The first part of the episode was really funny but the second part showed how scary Accelerator can be if he becomes angry.

Esther was really nice in this episode.

I've been watching this, but... Esther is a magician, right? Weren't all magic users affiliated with Necessarius/Vatican/Russia or other big force? Also in Index magic was only used out in the open during bigger scale warfare (unless some stupid terrorist attack on Academy City was underway) but Esther keeps using hers and everyone just shrugs whether she controlls corpses, heals, casts earth armor and whatnot.
Also how the fuck does necromancy end up making robots stronger?
This series feels really detached from... idk main series? Esther also keeps having cringy monologues every couple minutes... I will keep watching but the plot is bizarre.

This series relies on you knowing a bit more about the franchise, and not really much of a spoiler but there's all different kinds of espers, and even when Academy City got attacked by a literal golem everyone assumed it was just a esper ability as well.

To aru series concept is about magic & science superpower crossover from begining, what do you expect? From normal people perspective, magic is esper ability that not from academy city. Necromancy mixed with robot itself still nail with science vs magic concept. If you think that it detached from main series, then you still dont understand about this series concept.

I mean, sure i don't get it apparently. But it never was about some magitek. It either was magic or science. Espers using magic made them bleed out, and strong AIM field made magicians suffer similar fate. But robots/mecha strengthened with necromancy? I don't know, Index 3 made more sense to me. Hopefully Accelerator can save his namesake series and I change my mind.

Yea, normally esper will suffer damage when they use magic. But doesnt mean science cant use magic technique. Just look accel black wing, in magic side it similar with thelema.

As for coffin strengthning, magic didnt increase coffin strength. Necromancy just make cropse body become artficialy functional so they can use esper brain to make machine that can use esper power. You will see this application in railgun 3. Altough, in railgun 3 that brain functionaly active by science technique.

Back in the day when Accelerator could just use his Abillity all day to "mute" everything so he wouldn't get bothered by anything like Estelle asking him to be her master.

So he did some research on Accelerator and still thinks he can make a dent with his 3 Level 5 junk mechs, foolish...
but at least he made sure to get the information how to get Accelerator going to tear the flesh from his bones, although with hishigata's personality it was a given, guess he wanted to secure that service.
just because I’ve gotten weaker, doesn’t mean that you got stronger, does it?

Ah yess, this is what we are all here for! Accelerator fanservice at it's finest. This dipshit thinks he has any idea what Accelerator thinks, funny stuff.

Accelerator isn't saving lives because he's a softie, he'd only really do that for last order; most of the rest of it is more because he's pissed off about being manipulated, avoids fatal blows because well it's more interesting not to just erase everything, but also because killing plays into the hands of the higher-ups, which he wants none of. Plus i don't think killing was his style to begin with, the clones he didn't initially consider human so he didn't really think about it. (people keep trying to shove in his face that he's a good guy and only playing badguy, cringe as fuck for him lmao, even if it's partially right)


Rambles aside, we are all here to see what Accelerator smashes next, yeet.

This episode is longer than source material itself. JC add ssome details that not explained in manga which is good in my opinion. They should be directing index iii like this, at least for story pacing.

What I like about this episode are JC adding some extra dialouge that origanly not from manga such as Hisigata that wonder with accel action & little bit explanation about spirit inside that metal gear. Thats makes some missing point in manga explained in this anime.

I guess in the next episode we will get filler episode about Esther & Hishigata past since their past isnt explained properly in manga.

Esther was really cute when she begged Accelerator constantly for him to become her master. I guess she was successful in the end, although Accelerator was still annoyed at her for it. XD

Hirumi might be hot in just her underwear, but she and her lollipop loving brother will have a nice reality check soon enough. Taunting Accelerator and boasting about their 3 mechs begging able to handle level 5 esper attacks is just them asking for a savage beating and with the way Accelerator was laughing at the end, I'm sure he'll happily give those two a beating and save the Misaka clone in the process.

As for Esther, she's making her own attempt to end things her own way that's been going wrong since she came to Academy City. Either way, I look forward to the next episode where, hopefully, Accelerator goes and beats the shit out of those two smug siblings. =D

They really did soften up Accelerator comparing to his past appearances. Not a bad thing, of course, since it shows his character development well.

Fun fight between him and the three mechas. Their CGI rendering is surprisingly good, so kudos J.C.Staff.

First half was honestly cringy lol. I'm not sold on Esther's character yet, so I hope she gets some much needed background story.

If only that was the treatment index 3 was given... toaru series is great but I can't recommend the anime adaptations to anyone anymore after that (aside from sidestory content like railgun)

Actually, I still have many doubts about Esther's power. I don't know if it's a sorceress or an sper, or a combination of both. I need to know more about your family, the Rosenthals.
I can't wait for Accelerator to end Hishigata's scrap metal.

From an anime only perspective so far I would pretty safely say she's on the sorceress side, again I could be wrong but that's just how I feel from what I'm seeing, she doesn't have only a single power and seems to be able to do some magical stuff all around without general "scientific" limits that espers seem to have.

I wouldn't say strongly against killing, more he doesn't want that shit haunting his memories. He's already pissed off having to remember the deaths of all the MISAKAs, thanks to being manipulated by invested interests, which was his reward for complying. Accelerator isn't a psychopath, which is why these things can bother and frustrate him; if he was, things like death would be inconsequential to him.

They dont want him to take a break lol

Can't wait to see accelerator crushing hishigata, hirumi and their "piles of junk". They dont understand that they have no chance against accelerator.

Hishigata thinks he's smart but he's just so stupid for taunting Accelerator. Hopefully Accelerator murder his ass.
