Finally Railgun begins
was pretty nice seeing Kuroko beeing Kuroko again, and seeing Item too especially Mugino beeing extra sweet to Frenda as usual
Kakine losing his shit because someone told him on phone how his Dark Matter looks was funny

Gunha makes his debut in Anime and instantly shows off his Amazing Punch!
Accelerator got a little screentime, though i doubt he will get much more, been a while since i read the manga so i could be wrong.
just because I’ve gotten weaker, doesn’t mean that you got stronger, does it?

@Deknijff Honestly, that part of Railgun's fandom, which is obsessed with moe girls and considers Index a more worse show just because it has a male harem MC, was one of the reasons why I was very skeptical about this show for a very long time.
Im sorry that was the case but at least you ended up watching the show despite that and I'm hoping you enjoying it

Well, some moments seemed too generic to me, but now I understand why Komachi's universe is considered one of the best example of esper's titles. It was probably my most enjoyable experience with a big franchise after Durara and Saiki Kusuo.

Jesus christ, J.C bias towards the railgun series is fcked up, they treated Index III like shit and the Accel focus one was meh af if it wasnt for the blonde girl with him.
Not that I'm complaining, I love Misaka and Saten but come the fck on! at least put an average level on the magic side (Index) series as well.
The OP song was nice but the visuals arent in sync, I felt no hype besides seeing my boi Touma in that OP song.
Well here's to hoping the quality doesnt decline, seems like there'll be a big battle coming.

P.S I am bitter af cause Index III was horrendous to sit through when I prefer the magic side than the science (railgun) side.


yea it sucks. the director apparently is to blame. i like railgun too but index is where its at for me. i havent watched accelerator yet but i heard its good

Quite sure JC Staff nailed Railgun again, which got me wonder how they could f up Index. Accelerator just wasn't good enough.

The opening is sick, with fripSide at it again. Animation looks good. Keep it up!


The short answer worse director and trying to cram too much content into too few episodes. Imagine if Railgun S tried to the full Sisters Arc in 8 episodes instead of the 16 we got. Or if the Level Up Arc was 6 episodes instead of 12. Imagine that happening happening 6 times in a row and you have Index season 3.

7 years... Yeah 7 years. It's not a bug of our calendars.
I wasn't waiting this sequel as much as Index III but this first episode did a really good job to reintroduce the universe and the level 5.
Mugino is still over the top in every aspects but that's the reason i'm fond of her XD. The presence of Frenda is strange since the woman talk about Russia to Misaka.

This will probably go like all the times before: Strong start, then calamity and in the end pretty much meh, because the writers only knew fanservice...

Not this time around since this season won't have any filler arcs like previous two,only canon material that should remain strong all the way through.Well,at least it supposed to be that way,J.C.Staff may fuck it up and production quality crumbles,who knows?

At 19:02 during Mokoto Misaka’s heroic save of her buddies Saten and Uihara, a female voice says “Try Harder” in English. Yes?!

This episode is bitchen so far. Epic!

It´s so awesome.
It´s funny that in Index case they just try to do 8 novels worth of story in 26 ep and, obviously, it ends up a mess, but in Railgun they expand and add new content that makes the ep awesome. Not that´s a bad thing, but as someone said, i feel bad for Index series.

this is a tradition now. the first episode must be 95% filler. happened to railgun s, index3, and now railgun t.
at least the animation didn't suck shit, like with index3. too little, too late.

First time I've been excited for a show in a long time... I have a sfot spot for railgun, primarily because Kuroko is the best.

But gotta say, this episode was shiiiiiiiit. What a nonstarter. Making the common anime mistake of introducing too many characters to care about.

What was the plot of this episode? Misaka walks around, Uiharu intervenes in a fight. Wooo. Kuroko had nothing to do. Misaka clone scene was pure fanservice.

Hopefully it picks up. Though the number of characters has me worried it will be an unfocused mess just like Index.

By the way, I still don't like Satan. The skirt gimmick has NEVER been funny. At least with Kuroko the psycho lesbian stuff has some variance - with Satan it's the same old gag over and over. Uiharu needs to get a pair of Misaka shorts and shut down that bitch Satan.

Not to be a manga whore but I found Shokuhou's introduction in this episode to be a watered-down rehash of her introduction to the first episode of the previous season. They probably never thought they would adapt the Daihasei Arc and thoughtlessly introduced her much earlier than her actual arc. If that's not bad planning I don't know what is.

Not a great first episode imo because they have to navigate the landmines they laid themselves but I'm hoping they don't screw up the pacing any more since this is a great arc.

They introduced her in the last season just so they can use a convenient reason for NOBODY remembering what Silent Party was. Yeah she was introduced in ep 1 just so she can be useful in the last ep.

They should have reintroduced Kongou.Her debut in the manga is nothing like the one she had in S1 of the anime.

Besides the characters from last season of Railgun, only 4 are new and from them only 1 will be relevant. Calm your tits.

And hate to break it to you, but Kuroko's bullshit are just a repetitive as Saten's.


Oh wait Saten doesnt flip skirts every time she is alone with Uiharu.

God Railgun is so much better than index

I find it so painful that they both canon in the same animated universe despite one being clearly so much better.

Ah what a shame. Silent Party is probably the lowest point in the entirety of the Railgun franchise...

They probably should have reintroduced the 2 swimming club members as well seeing they get pretty badass and important roles latter on.

Aaaand JC's bias toward Railgun is as strong as ever. They even reverted Accel's sfx back from the earlier seasons ffs.

Anyway it's nice to see Gunha finally animated. The intros of level 5s are neat as well. And holy shit Yobou finally talks!


I mean, it's Nagai directing it. Actually, JC kinda downgrades his talent but it is what we got.
Both Index and Accelerator's directors are bad, so, ofc this will look better.
I Think accelerator looked fine and index s3 was more of time constraints that anything.

Considering that Index's adaptation of Sisters arc is crap and actually contradicts what happens in Railgun, skipping it is the right option.

Lackluster animation, lackluster ost, lackluster direction. Only the voice acting is good in Index and even then Railgun delivers better even if it is the same fucking cast.
I wouldnt skip anything index even though they cover the same arc the only part thats the same is the las few episodes. And as someone who read the ln the sisters arc in the anime sticks really close to the ln for once and dosent skip much. While railgun adds alot of fanfare this good but isnt the best representation of what happened in the og ln fight

The Index adaptation is still worse than what Railgun did.So it is the best we have.

lol it is nowhere near story level of the light novels, the manga isnt even that far yet into it and is on a smaller scale. and Mikoto has some good development in the light novels too. nice try though.

Not even. Toma is just such a horribly boring character. The church’s machinations just fail to impress compared to the schemes in academy city. I don’t read the light novels so perhaps there’s something redeeming.

The railgun manga and side story are genuinely entertaining. I am being harsh on accelerator but his god mode Schtick doesn’t work like say one punch man. He’s an edgy wannabe antihero.

Stop baiting. If there is no to aru index.
Toaru Kagaku no Railgun will not exist, index is main series, railgun and other are side story.

Railgun side story for misaka, if the author stop makig index LN then the railgun anime and manga is dead, the author it self focus index than railgun manga.

Because it's the same author.

Yeah imagine you say that to author, Toaru Kagaku no Railgun manga will be get AXED because cancer fanbase. Lul.

You clearly stupid and baiting for attentions, not knowing which one the main series.

I recommend check the wiki who the author, also knowing Toaru Kagaku no Railgun is only manga series with few chapter + super long update, LN or WN not exist will make you depressed.

I'm saying railgun is one of those long hiatus / to get new chapter manga.

Or maybe you don't like touma because he hit a lot women " for gender equality " and you super WOKE, you hate him because you are one of those REEEEEEEEEEE SJW.

In MAL many people spam account for being anonymous + haters to lower score some good anime + reply their own comment.

Anyone talk shit certain anime without thinking how hard to make anime and how expensive the budgets is, those comment absolutely a bait posting.

I will not trying to change your mind by explaining why you're wrong because it will probably don't work but Touma and Index are way more interesting than you think. If you don't want to read the LN you can at least try the manga I think it is a more fairly adaptation, it is close as good as the railgun manga in my opinion. Maybe by yourself you'll find index more interesting.

its especially fucked when you consider that index being a super success as a novel series is the only reason railgun even exists.

honestly feels like major disrespect to the series to be so poorly handled.

^ this sums up my exact thoughts with the rabbid railgun only fans.

the only reason accelerator looks like a edgelord is because a lot of his dialogue was cut. hes actually very pragmatic. he doesn't want to be all powerful for the power he just wants people to stop attacking him. a lot of his dailouge in the sister arc is him trying to scare the sisters out of doing the experiment in the first place and his psychotic act in battle is a facade to scare people out of fighting him.

touma is also watered down in the anime from the novel. to seem like a idiotic idealist while in the novels hes realistic about the world, but maintains a optimism about it.

God that Fripside OP and the animations and everything.. I loved this series so much! I missed it over the years, watched Index and never could get into it, heard III was bad so I never bothered to finish S2.. I'm kinda bothered the studio treats it so badly but I will just enjoy this at least.

Accelerator was OKish, I've been looking forward to see the 5th LV 5 girl for a few years now! Happy this is finally getting animated.

Great to see Misaka and the sisters again. Seems that blonde chick now knows about them. I get the feeling she actually likes Misaka and is just a more subtle tsudere than Misaka is lol.

No Touma is sight is also great. Hate that guy so much. Nice to see some action right away in episode one with Misaka using her Railgun. They basically repeated the exact same scene between Misaka and that blonde from a previous season.

Hope this season can keep up the quality of the previous two. Love the Railgun series so much and cant wait for the next episode.

OH GOD

I was fanboying so hard throught the whole episode. The nostalgia, the feelings, the ost, the animation, the colors, THE VOICE ACTORS, MISAKA, KUROKO ONEEEEE SAMA, UIHARU KYAAAAAAAA

I don't even know. I don't have a single negative comment. Absolutely loved it. I'v read the manga and I think this is my favorite arc so far and I can see that they are gonna perfectly adapt it. This is gonna be such a joy. I have no idea how Railgun can be such a strong 10/10 and Index being... Index. Anyways. I really hope that I won't eat my words and that they will continue the awesome job for the whole season.

5/5 + 10/10. I'm not even sure if I ever rated an anime again from the first episode in all these years I'm in MAL but alas I'm too deep into the fanboy mode.


Lololololol you gonna be alright there?! XD
I really love Railgun myself, too, far more so than Index story, admittingly.

Eh sorry for being late but here a list from my old notes that I tried to update now real quick since I saw you asking

1. Railgun episode 1-14 and OVA.
2. Index episode 1-6.

3. Railgun episode 15-16.
4. Index 7-9.
5. Railgun episode 17-24


6. Railgun S episode 1-9

7. Index episode 10 and Railgun S episode 10-12
Index episode 11 and Railgun S episode 13
Index episode 12 and Railgun S episode 14
Index episode 13 and Railgun S episode 15
Index episode 14 and Railgun S episode 16


8. Railgun episode 17-20
9. Index episode 15-18, Index II episode 1, Index episode 19-24


10. Accelerator episode 1-12
11. Index II episode 2-7
12. Index The Miracle of Endymion movie


13. Index II episode 8-13
14. Railgun T episode 1-24/26 if no filler arcs as rumours said


15. Index II episode 14-24
16. Index III episode 1-26


You don't need to watch exactly in the episode order I listed in each section but I recommend you don't move onto another colour bracket until you've seen everything in their respective colouring group

Dear lord this is ridiculous. It's Kingdom Hearts level of bad when it comes to chronology.
And I don't even remember what happened in Index 1/2 Railgun 1/2. I watched like 4 or 5 episodes of the third season of Index and I said "fuck it" - I just couldn't follow. If they do the same thing here I think it's just better for me to never touch this franchise again. It's a damn shame but I'm getting too old to keep track of all that crap.

It's so good to see this series again!

It was cool seeing the other level 5s as well.

Misaka's entrance at the end had me smiling.

God Railgun is so much better than index

I find it so painful that they both canon in the same animated universe despite one being clearly so much better.
The source material are equally good for both series. The director for Index was just awful.

10 minutes into this and its already better than Index S3 ever was. Though S3 sucked anyway so thats not an achievement. Its better than all of Index and also Accelerator. I missed the girls more than I expected.

Wtf at the sissy subs though. Its like they are trying to be as infuriating as possible.
