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.

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 read more

Hello everyone, since you're reading this, you wanna hear my opinion and review of this, so let's just get right into it!

The Story, (8/10)

The story is fairy unique if you compare it to other shounen manga, if you read the story description it takes place in a scientific city that is far ahead of the rest of the world technology-wise and the only place in the world that has people with abilities. I personally enjoy the story because it touches upon many scientific themes (that are actually interesting) than it's main counterpart, Toaru Majutsu no Index. Mind you that Railgun is actually a spin off read more
