    Really love this anime
    Though it's older, it's still really good. This anime is a spin off to To Aru Majutsu no Index, AKA A Certain Magical Index, focusing on the side character Misaka. IMO, Railgun is a LOT better than Index. So, even if you didn't enjoy index, give this one a chance. Both Index and Railgun have 2 seasons, which Crunchyroll hasn't released yet it seems, so we'll have to wait for those to come out.

    Its a amazing show and you should highly consider watching it
    I've watched this show many times and i'm very glad its opened to a wider audience through crunchyroll, watch this and i haven't found many people that dislike it and so far nobody i know has hated it. Its story is interesting, its action is very cool and satisfying to watch and all of its characters have personality unique to them, but that doesn't make the characters only one way because ...

    This can't be a spinoff...
    Everyone who calls this a great anime is absolutely right. It's awesome! I can't believe that it's a spin-off of Certain Magical Index, and not the other way around. BTW, I like Index too, but it always felt stunted. Too short and too narrow in terms of it's world and characters.

    In Railgun the world and characters get fully fleshed out, with just the right amount of background stories and ...

    A spinoff better than the original
    I watched both A Certain Magical Index and A Certain Scientific Railgun almost back-to-back. Like Working!! and WWW.Working, this is a case of the spin-off of the source material being subjectively better than the adaptation of the original. There's more charm and likeability with Mikoto than with Touma, as an MC. The supporting characters are interesting and bring out the potential in Mikoto's ...

    Superpowers for Everyone
    How would you like to live and go to school in an academic city where everyone has superpowers or is doing research on superpowers. Everyone is rated based on the strength of their powers and having stronger powers has it's perks as well as more people wanting to experiment on you. Are you a fox in the henhouse? Are you a rat in a maze? Or are you a student just trying to live a normal life, ...

    HELLS TO THE YAAASSSSS!!!!!
    I've already watched and own both seasons. Loved this anime and very excited to watch again on Crunchyroll. I was a little skeptical at first as I wasn't to into A Certain Scientific Index but a few episodes into this anime and I was hooked. Wishing there was more seasons beyond this.

    Strong at the start terrible at the finale.
    a side story to Index railgun shows us the world of academy city through the eyes of mikoto Misaka 3rd top level 5 esper rather then following a more serious story Railgun starts out as more of a slice of life with a side helping of action. getting more serous near the middle. becoming more enjoyable as it progresses

    it returns to the more dark nature of the index series in season two retelling ...

    one of the best shows of all time
    i might be overstating this title but, this story has a very unique way of telling itself from the perspective of touma and misaka mikoto, touma being from a certain magical index the stories intertwine and are apart yet the same, the take place with the same charters but they tell it from different perspectives, i highly highly recommend this anime i just enjoy it so much i hope you do too

    I recommend this to anyone
    Even though this is a spin off from the Index series, its still a great anime with many elements that allow me to fully enjoy this anime. I recommend this anime to anyone who enjoys supernatural or action anime. Since this has demonstrated more then enough. 10/10 would watch again and again

  • A great anime witth a new super heroine!!
    I watched this anime based on Crunchyroll's recommendation. It is not new, starting in 2009 (seven years ago), but it is the most entertaining anime up to now. The four main characters are related as school girls, but the star is Misaka Mikoto, the taller of the two brown hair girls in the image. She has extremely powerful electromagnetic abilities (based on ESP, so they are called Espers), and ...
