My only real issue with this show is how incredibly unoriginal it is. Sometimes JC Staff just can't figure out from what standpoint to tell the story. This is the problem. They can't do action anime. Ookami-san and Her Seven Companions is one example. Good premise, interesting characters, but terrible story flow and chessy, predictable fights. Slice of life and sci-fi is where they shine.


read the manga for this series it's better, also the railgun manga is well.. dark and bleak not happy but this is what j.c.staff does. As much as I loved the railgun anime the manga is just wow.

I've read railgun manga and I don't think it's necessarily better than the anime. Sometimes I like a little carefree time with Misaka and Co. between the near daeth esper battles and deranged, child-abusing scientists.

ha well hmm i guess because i am such a huge accelerator fan is why I like the manga more, i just hate to think what would happen if those 2 had a kid, but on subject even with rie in this anime i am only giving it 2 more ep and if doesn't do it for me screw it, hayate the movie and season 3 are coming out plus shana season 3 i would rather go back something that i did like from them because i have never had a chance to read the hayate manga or shana light novels so I can't compare to the anime. Believe me i have tried ordering the manga for hayate but up to vol 12 is back ordered from viz >_>

He's a coward, that's what makes him pathetic.

The guy is dealing with life-and-death situations every day, he has just learned his brother was murdered doing the same thing, and you call him a coward because he wants to AVOID that scenario?
What is wrong with you? XD
No, srsly.
I think more anime fans need to put themselves in the characters' shoes because the expectations people hold nowadays for the average anime teenager are ridiculous.

MC would be better if he weren't such as wuss outside of hysteria mode.

Kin-chan's NOT a wuss! He's a normal sixteen-year-old boy. Ever see Evangelion? Shinji Ikari is a wuss.

Lack of any entertainment factor as the show tries to take itself seriously.

How come lots of other watchers (like myself) are still entertained then?

Lack of interesting supporting characters (other than the sniper girl who got like 5 secs of screen time...)

You don't find Riko interesting? When's the last time you've encountered a two-faced otaku girl with a blood thirst for vengeance? Like never, maybe?


My only real issue with this show is how incredibly unoriginal it is.

I don't watch a lot of action anime centering on girls with guns. And the only other Rie tsundere series I've seen to completion is Shakugan No Shana so this show works fine for me.

He wants to avoid the scenario = Running away from responsibility.

And plus, he is not just your everyday anime teenager. He's a Butei for Christ's sake. He should fight. Running away is a no-no. Even Aria has more balls than that wimp.

That's probably the only Rie series I haven't seen yet. Her character is not as interesting as others. Aria is no Taiga(Toradora) or even a Louise(Zero no Tsukaima) is all I'm saying. And those Speed scenarios are getting on my nerves. I swear I thought they were going to say the plane would crash/explode if it slowed down in episode 4.

It's not responsibility, it's a choice.

He doesn't WANT to be a butei! If you don't put your heart into doing something, you will never get it done right. Plus he is traumatized by his brother's death. He will only get stronger if he faces his inner demons. But let's face it; nobody's ever eager to conquer their past trauma. I still haven't gotten past all of mine and I'm ten years older than Kinji. lol

Aria's been doing this a hell of a lot longer than he has and she's incredibly skilled. It's unfair to compare them. Besides, she has motivation-freeing her mother. Kinji really doesn't have motivation.

If he chooses to be not a Butei, then that makes him cool? Riiiight.

Yes... I tend to think those people with dark pasts and never even try to get over it are weak characters. Whatever his reasons, it's not ideal to just let the "trauma" or whatever eat you.

You can call me sexist, but, she's a girl and he's a guy. (and I'm a girl saying that)

Look. Unless he does something (in the future episodes) to make me like him, I'm not gonna change my mind. Well I hope he does, 'cause I don't want any more pointless arguments over this with you anyway.

Let's just agree to disagree for the moment.

Well, why the hell should he choose a life of peril when he doesn't have to?

Would YOU?

And don't you dare say "yes". Because nobody in their right mind would....unless they had a death wish.

That is 100% sexist.

Chiibi I've enjoyed getting into arguments with u if you don't mind me jumping in.

My opinions on this is that: king is not a good leading characters
My first impression on his attitude was that: he should stfu.

A good leading character manes a series more interesting or strong, but unless I'm mistaken he has bitched about a lot of things and Dan away from a lot of problems.

Though shinji Ikari is a coward, he had 1 epic quote kinji should know: " I will not run away."

Have a main character complaining all the time and running away just makes it annoying for the viewers to watch. Good mcs: Kyon, lelouch, ayumu aikawa, Ken(seitokai no ichizon), kyousuke kosaka, touma kamijou, kujo(gosick)
Those above has made tge series watchable if not better

But kinji? Well... Let's just say I would've preferred if he had hysteria mode a the time
