Dat mood whiplash. And they kept the leg ripping scene as well as the train scene. Absolutely love the episode. From the BGM to the good pacing to the acting combined with a flawless adaptation of the manga chapters. Brilliant.

Let's hope that JC Staff can keep up the momentum here as they are doing an amazing job.

Next, chapter count: With this, has finished adapting Volume 4 of the manga. Chapters 22 and 23 are done. Once again, they are keeping a good pace. Next episode will most likely be adapting only Chapter 24th and concluding August 15th based on the preview.

Also, look at this scene:

Remember the role this type of item plays in Liberal Arts City SS. Yep, they are still teasing us even now. If Liberal Arts City isn't adapted, rage will emerge from the fanbase...muahahahahaha...ahem..

Lastly, it was nice hearing Nobuhiko Okamoto again. Can't get enough of that crazy slasher voice. :P

Epic episode :)
It's sad indeed that the first clone that had any contact with the original died like that...
Now, I'm really dying to see Touma..

I knew it was going to happen but it's such a shame I liked Misaka 9982 and all her zoning out faces :( ,also love the epic music playing into the credits.

Always felt Railgun needed a bit more intense scenes like the leg rip GeeGee JC staff !

"Holy crap, I'm traumatized," says shirayuki75, responding to the bloody sad episode that he just watched. I haven't seen Index, so I don't like Accelerator too much right now. haha.

Well holy shit did things get serious in this episode. God damn at the way Accelerator just ripped Misaka 9982's leg off. Wow... Can't wait to see the way a pissed off Misaka is gonna fight him, even though it is gonna be a hopeless battle.

Great episode. And the first part was really fun to watch as well. Lol'd at Misaka 9982's facial expressions.

I didn't even notice that i had to rewatch it to see where it was. Also the much anticipated return of the series badass accelerator with a awesome leg tearing. Can't wait until next week this episode really was great.

By the way, I just realized that the code really wasn't that original after seeing subtitles. It's way too obvious lolz.

ZXC741ASD852QWE963

Is simple:

ZXC (first three letters on the bottom row of a keyboard)
741 (spaced by three)
ASD (first three letters on the second row of a keyboard)
852 (spaced by three each one is one more than before)
QWE (first three letters on the top row of a keyboard)
963 (spaced by three each one is one more than before)

This is a bad pass-code even though I'm being pretty nitpicky. It's easy to come up with and to remember, and it should be relatively simple to crack... (I'm a math major lolz)

So... um... oh yeah, the episode was amazing though.

Look at the Numpad. :P

If this is someone's first introduction to the character Accelerator, that's an understandable reaction. Viewers who already know him from Index and the Railgun manga, however, will know a lot more of his background. Things that someone who hasn't would not.



Of course if you only posted this just to be a troll, then by all means, continue believing as you currently do. ~_^

WTF are you talking about, it was perfectly adapted, just as the manga, it's a scene necessary to depict the cruelty of the experiment lead by the dark side of academy city.

If you don't like a little bit of gore, don't watch this.

Typical reaction I would see from someone who found Railguns first (boring as hell) season more enjoyable than Index series.

Also this makes you disgusted? You're watching Shingeki no Kyojin with even more gore, you watched all the Kara no kyoukai and Blood+ series, and yet you're disgusted? Please complain less.

Sry but I can't see any similarities with your examples and Railgun. Blood+? oh some monsters died lol? Don't make me laugh. Also it's not just the gore that disturbs me, It's the feeling it creates in that situation. Torture and shit. Not ma thing.

Troll spoted, come on, if you don't like it don't watch it.

That was necessary, or do you want that accelerator kiss with every sister.


And you are watching shingeki no kyoujin, that's even more graphic than this, stop complaining.

Yes im not sure if I will watch it anymore. No I want him to die so I can enjoy this show.
I dont care if some fucking side character dies in Shingeki no Kyojin and its a bit "graphic"
You don't introduce a sweet girl and just torture and fucking kill her in the next 5 min. I do not enjoy watching shit like that.

No, but during this time in the canon, Endymion was still under construction.
I am saying the movie is canon. However, it happens some time in September before the Daihaseisai. The current episode takes place on August 15th.

Right. Because Touma can't be a BAMF. eg. Touma punched out an Archangel. The same archangel which Accelerator and Hyouka were at a standstill with until Acqua of the back cut its energy in half.

Fine... Then just enjoy him getting beaten into the ground later. He does get his just desserts. Also, the reason you saw something like this is to understand how angry Misaka is. Plus, Accelerator doesn't actually understand what he's doing. He just sees the sisters right when he is about to terminate them.. he thinks of them as proteins in the shape of a human body, not as actual human beings.

Also, Accelerator is a scary, messed up person (as a result of many different traumas). The point of this season is how Mikoto faces this cruel reality. The fact that she (hopefully) overcomes this should make you want to watch. I'm pretty sure this is the most graphic scene by far in this season... and they could have made it much worse. So please don't complain as much as you are doing. This was a 100% true adaptation to the manga which was very popular. You can't criticize a show for following its hugely popular original manga. Of course, following the adaptation should make it good, especially if it is true to it. That particular aspect of the manga was one of the most heartbreaking parts of this scene.

Just because you are surprised doesn't mean that the show is bad... In fact, the show accomplished its purpose by making you feel sick at the fact that Accelerator killed the clone. You are supposed to be really hating accelerator at this point if you are just getting to know him. I have read pretty much Index, Railgun related so I can tell you, that in your approach to this, you should just hate him as a character for now. Other characters enjoy his appearance, because it goes hand in hand with Mikoto's badassery, and her attempts to fix the situation.

Accelerator represents the brutal side of the experiments: without him, we don't see Mikoto go through true turmoil. Him doing something like that WAS necessary.

I couldn't watch it either, just so you know, even though I knew it was coming, but the significance of it and Mikoto's crazy reaction were what were the important results of that action/scene. This is why they censored it too: for the fans who would have otherwise not been able to take it. They definitely censored it a lot, not that I am complaining.

Many here seem to forget that Accelerator is not the only one coming to the fight intending murder. The sisters are all trying to kill him. They are not innocent, they also intend to commit ruthless murder by any means they can, however cute they are.

But then the censors appeared and I was like ...

This episode reminded me of the reason I despised accelerator when I read the manga.
The interaction between Misaka and her clone was like a calm before the storm and it was pretty heart breaking to watch especially when you know the fate of the clones.

God the episode was done so well. Sister's facial expressions were priceless, they did such a good job making you really care for the sister and hope she doesn't die(better than Index did), damn it was good, good OST at the end, good conveyance of the sister's growing despair till her death, and good cliffhanger with Misaka livid. Just a damn good episode.

@Pangeaa: If you can't get over poor MISAKA getting such cute and funny screentime just to die, and try to understand that was all very necessary for the viewer establishing a perception of Accelerator and mainly for Misaka's development, then I suggest you make like Pangea and split.

Yep: I understand the ratings that were 5. I really don't get the 4's... but whatever. 1's (you're just being stupid. That was very well done. Best in the franchise) Anyone who gives a 1 is just being ignorant to what is actually going on.

Simple, that 1 was the troll from before and someone else. At least the 4s are still understandable.

For anyone who gave this episode a 1: Raildex is NOT for you. Leave. This barely scratches the surface of the deep darkness of the Raildex franchise (mostly seen in Index through the Dark Side organizations, GRS, GREMLIN, Dark May, DRAGON, the Kihara lineage, the Saints, etc.)

Well in index 1 they didnt have the liberty to really build on the SISTER relationship, they only had like 4 episodes for the entire arc as Railgun S has an entire season. So railgun should do better in that retrospect due to time. But I agree with your statement of the Epsiode, bloody good)literally bloody good xD )

Kinda felt that douchyness of accelerator just oozing out. I actually was thinking and hoping for kakine to fly over and save misaka xD random thoughts.

No, it does not start to merge with Index here. The current episode takes place on August 15th. This will start to merge with Index on August 20th/21st. Touma will remain uninvolved for quite a few more episodes.

True enough, Index did have quite a bit on it's plate. But even still they introduced the dilenma pretty well and made you care for the Sisters in the limited time it had. That's the beauty of this season, it's just so great to see every step and really see how the Sisters interact and what they think and feel individually.

Good build up for the Radio Noise project and Accelerator is just like how he is at the start of Index, a relentless murderer. Oh yeah the bullet time of his Reflection was pretty cool too.

And I also like how the Sister's eyes are now drawn in focus, it gives them a lot more life and emotion, and I wish they were drawn like this from the very beginning, makes much more sense for clones.

I'm loving this season of Railgun much more so because it's all canon (so far xD). And props to JC Staff for this well done episode
