THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
Holy shit, new OP song. I like it though honestly.


The episode felt a little slow to me but still enjoyable! My favorite parts from the episode was the Frenda vs. Kuroko with the argument. That was GOLD. Misaka and Mugino are obviously not amused but I am.

Decent episode :3, dat new ED

The hotpot made me hungry...

New OP time. The two are going out and meet with those two for study, though they do the eating most of time. More detail on the conversation during making the cookies. That initial problem is no more. Uiharu in trouble with summer hw. lol~ it's been a long time since Kotobuki-san's character! She's here for her pet's food. Visiting sisters. The doctor investigated them through and they are short lived?

Wow, the bomb girl and fellow level 5er!! lol @ Bomb girl vs. Kuroko, or rather, about which level 5er is better. Turtle type meat?? (Suppon)

New ED!! "Links (リンクス)" by Sachika Misawa. That title for the preview is long (I know that it's for the Index Movie, though)!

I've been wondering, is Misaka from a rich family? She even got high class meat this ep.

Edit: Moving out, and that little girl will appear.

ITEM was the best part of the episode. They adapted that from the manga :D (even though it was just a special what-if panel in the manga rather than an actual part of the plot).

Anyway, the opening was pretty amazing. It looked pretty good. Otherwise I'll wait for subtitles, I honestly wasn't that impressed... but the opening makes me think this could be a great arc.

First 1/3 of the Index movie streaming next week instead of railgun S episode 18 which is pushed back a week as shown in the PV at the end of this episode.

The ending music was ok though the song got better at the end.

The main points of interest in the opening were:

1. Everything looked dark and gloomy (surprising).

2. Touman is back!!!! :D

Just found the new OP on youtube now since the subbed episode is not out and it looks like there will not be Liberal Arts City arc and an original instead with a blonde loli this time. How many blonde lolis are there in Raildex all together now? Someone count them all up lol.

It wasn't quite as... side-splitting, if you catch my drift, though there was groping.

New OP

Is it a rule in Railgun to have Misaka jumping in the OP and having powersuits as a main weapon for the bad guys?
Anyway at least t seems that we will see Kongou's friends in action way before the Daihaseisai arc and the bad guys probably have something to do with Body Crysta.
*trying to see the good points of the original arc*

And looks like Anti Skill will be useless again.Seriously AC should change their "police" into GROUP,ITEM and Misaka and her friends.

Well i wish they would not try to make any scientist apart from a Kihara an enemy we all know they are the ones that are actually dangerous, the ones in the OP look like random cannon fodder and do not look like Kihara's.

To be a Kihara, you do not need to look the part. You must be the part. I'm sure that even a dog could be a Kihara if it were smart enough :D

Anyway...

Happy to see her in the opening hidden away in shattering glass. Thank god for youtube.\

Just had a thought! Is that bodycrystal?

Alright, I watched the OP song again. Just a small question:

Touma has never met Mugino in person before yet right? Just a yes or no for answer please.

The body crystal looks like this I think:


Now from the new OP song, I do see a resemblance, somewhat hard to tell though...

Edit: maybe looks more like this:

Thats the First Sample,how Body Crystal used to be.

What we now refer to as Body Crystal is what Rikou(and others) took to use her powers when they were fighting Misaka this

And was beaten to it ...

That loli in the OP would probably be the 4th blonde loli in the whole Raildex, just off the top of my head. Still, more lolis.....as if we didn't have enough in NT already.

So, Kongou is going to fight some powersuits roughly on the same day she transfers(in the manga), because that big fight will clearly happen before the end of August. Ugh, the timeline.
And I fear that they're probably going to ignore the effects of Angel Fall when we get to that date. This arc won't fit within 4-5 days left before that, and they just burned a day already with this episode. No one was spared on those days. I would assume that the current date is August 23(didn't see any calendars at all).
Ah well, the timeline was already ruined the day Kongou showed up on season 1 so...

Let's just think of the positives at the moment.
They did address the issue with the clones with Heaven Canceller. That encounter with Frenda and Mugino was pure gold. Uiharu is already being called by her other title and for a good reason. And the OP did show a certain someone who was kind of forgotten in the Sisters arc.
And...that's it I guess. Kuroko was kind of annoying after the restaurant fiasco and the other two were not that interesting as well. Haruue appearing even made it worse. Ugh.
No LAC for this season unfortunately but let's just see what this original story brings us. Those scientists really don't strike as the final boss types or even threatening for that matter. What the middle guy was holding was the only thing that interested me. And how the loli will fit in all of this. So yeah, coming off of the awesome ending of the Sisters arc was a not that good of an episode for me. Let's see what's in store for this arc I guess.

Frenda,
are the others, right?

And so, we don't get the LAC arc which JC Staff has been teasing since episode 2. Oh well. Maybe we'll get some Kiharas and like someone else pointed out earlier, closure for Shinobu in this arc. Perhaps this may even set up for LAC and the Daihaseisai so who knows? I won't make my decision until I see the arc as a whole though...

At this point, they never have met.
Not until
as far as we know.

It could be. It also looks similar to the data drive that Shinobu was using to implant emotions into the Sisters.

I did say just off the top of my head so I forgot about that last one. I also didn't think that that witch was a blonde as I don't remember where it was mentioned. And I didn't count Frenda...

Then that makes that loli in the OP the 7th blond loli in Raildex.
Kamachi and his lolis. And still no casual Vento...

I'm pretty sure she was described like that in her first appearance in NT4.
Maybe my memory is faulty...?

I swear at some point Kazuma Kamachi became a lolicon with a thing for blonde lolis, hell just for lolis in general lol. Then again Index was the first heroine and Misaka is a middle schooler so it has always been there. Some of his best new characters who are a few of my personal favorites have been blonde that being Leivinia Birdway and Shokuhou Misaki.

Such a peaceful episode. I believe the word 'peaceful' was used twice...

Wonder if the loli is related to the index movie? Haven't watched that yet so don't know.

Also, those mecha in OP

Didn't watch the episode yet but they actually adapt that omake between Mugino & Mikoto!? YESSSS!!!! I love that part & the joke for Frenda lol.

New OP kind of decent, the visual doesn't flow better like the first OP though.
I disappointed that there will be no LAC arc, WHY JC STAFF!!!! They even hinted that in many ep but turn out to be different now from the look of OP :(

Speaking of new filler arc


EDIT: Well crap when I looked back at OP, the Sisters are there & the program was actually Febli(?) hair in a container. Maybe this will have a link to Daihasei(?) arc consider that Telestina arc has link with the crystal thing for Takitsubou.

Including Mugino and Frenda in this Slice-of-Life episode just made it godly. Frenda vs Kuroko was an amazing sight to see. Hopefully we will be seeing more Meltdowner in other episode <3 <3

Nice relaxing ep after all that tension.

Op wasn't bad. ofc not as good as last one which is almost impossible to beat XD Like the others are saying another loli XD

Mikoto's tsundereness when Saten asked her about the cookies and Touma was sooo kawaiii <3

The best thing about this ep was ofc the four way between Frenda-Kuroko-Mugino and Mikoto....now that was sooooooooooo hilarious lolololol XD...Dat boob groping was so lol and blushing Mikoto and Mugino was fabulous!

Kuroko and her Turtle blood was sooooo lol XD

A study meeting without showing any "study" scene.Now that is odd .

I was actually expecting "still" scene after Haruue arrive and brought the Udon. I think this is my first time watching "still" scene with some decent animation .
