Average Rating

Mikoto Misaka and her friends are back, investigating rumors across Academy City. Soon, Mikoto discovers something terrifying: horrific experiments are taking place throughout the city, involving the murder of thousands of espers. Moreover, these espers are far from just ordinary people: they are clones of Mikoto herself. Feeling responsible for their treatment, she sets off to put an end to the experiments; however, the forces opposing her are much more dangerous than she anticipated, and Mikoto finds herself up against some of the most powerful espers imaginable. Toaru Kagaku no Railgun S continues the story of the Railgun as she desperately fights to put an end to the inhuman experiments that she believes she helped cause, her life dragged deep into despair in the process. There's never a dull moment in Academy City, but no one ever said all of them would be pleasant.

Very fun show! Misaka is one of my fave female MCs for a reason! In general, great and strong mostly female cast and fun action!


A much more cohesive narrative and focused plot than Index, with a far better developed cast. A good balance between style and substance.


Still better than Index. More Accelerator is always good too.


Can i just say Kuroko VA is fucking a sex goddess, when she says “Onee Sama” shit is to bend over backwards 3x times over for.


Sisters, best arc ?


A lot darker than the first season of Railgun, and a much better pace story wise. It does drop off a bit after the first arc completes


Enjoyable, cute, good characters.
