Synopsis

Thirty years ahead of the rest of the world scientifically and home to millions of students enrolled in the esper development program, Academy City never sees a dull moment. Here, espers are given one of five power levels, the highest of which consists of only seven members. Mikoto Misaka, a middle school electromaster, ranks third among these individuals, and is known as "The Railgun."

In a city known for housing extraordinary individuals, it comes as no surprise that extraordinary things tend to happen. Recently, makeshift bombs disguised as everyday objects have been ominously finding their way into public areas. Mikoto's best friend, Kuroko Shirai, has been investigating the case as a member of the student-based disciplinary committee Judgement. As more and more of these incidents come to light, it becomes apparent that a hidden darkness exists within Academy City, one that may not only impact Mikoto and her friends, but also the fate of the city itself.

Surprised that there isn't a review for this manga yet given it's been running for so long, so here's one. I'll keep it as spoiler-free as possible.

Story-wise, it’s great for an action manga. It has cool action sequences, a logical story flow, and of course some great comedic moments. By shounen manga standards, it does stand out as being rather unique for the many different applications of science. Basically, it starts ...

I discovered the anime version first, I was so happy when they began to release this manga in english (I'm Frensh by the way). I was supprised that this side story of To Aru Majutsu no Index would be that great. This series is now one of my favorite.

Story : 9
Art : 8
Character : 10
Enjoyment : 10
Overall : 9

NB : A point that seems important to me is that all the volumes are quite big ! the 10th must be more than 50% bigger than a regular manga.

The best point of this series are the characters, even though 80% of the characters are little ...

Attention, English is not my first language.

This manga is already bad in its concept. this universe makes no sense. Why would the government allow such a school to exist? these experiments were to be carried out in top secret military bases; they are developing super fucking human weapons.

if two students clash, they could end up destroying the school! how did the author not think of this? how did the author not realize that this idea of students acting like police is stupid? Teenagers don't have the maturity or intelligence to act like agents of the law. power should not have the main indicator. And there ...
