I dislike Touma, and would much rather have Railgun be full-on yuri instead of it being subtexty.

Eeeeeee!!! I just finished the first ep and it was great! I missed this series so much! The END was kinda spoilery though, but the song was great.

Im waiting for the dub for season 1 to come out (3 or 4 days) then Ill watch it, I watched all of index dubbed so It would feel wrong to watch railgun in anything other than dub tbh

I could understand for maintaining continuity, I watched Clannad dubbed so I watched AS dubbed as well. Railgun is pretty far removed from Index though I don't quite understand it but hey it is entirely your prerogative to do so.

First episode was a great way to start off the new season! I definitely did not expect Misaki to appear in the anime, it was a good surprise.

*only open spoilers if you have read the railgun manga*

I can't stand this show. It's terrible and boring. Wake me up for the next season of Index.

Very minor spoilers to follow, character names, and themes, but not plot. Doesn't seem worth a spoiler tag.

Index has the one of the most boring protagonists I've ever seen in anime and damn near kills the show. No hyperbole, that's honestly how I feel. He has no personality whatsoever and only one move which exacerbates my single biggest complaint about anime fights. Way to much god damn talking and not enough action. He spends 90% of his fights blabbing because if he lands a punch, the fight is over. If he misses the punch he gets attacked and then they have to kill more time with talking before he can try and punch them again.

So boring!

Ultimately index episodes are entertaining only if there are interesting side characters, The interesting side characters happen to be Misaka, the sisters, Kuroko, and Accelerator. Index herself is cute and all, but she can't keep the show going by herself. So basically all of the best episodes involve the railgun characters anyways. Even Touma fails to bore in the railgun verse since he's surrounded by more entertaining characters.

Ok, OK. I admit it. Since he does only have one move he has the genre bending ability to actually be able to punch old people and women in the face. Something you rarely see in anime. That's somewhat entertaining since some of the female villains really deserve it, but that's about all it's got going for it.

How much personality can a guy have if he loses his memory and no one around him notices?

This sums up my feelings about him nicely. I'll take it a step further though.

The only good parts of Index are the volumes that involve little to no Touma and Index. Accel and Misaka arcs to be more precise. Touma has the worst case of plot armor I've ever seen, has not one of his enemies thought "man magic/esper abilities don't seem to work... how about an ol fashion bullet to the brain."

Index is an annoying little munchkin and the other supporting cast isn't around long enough for me to care about any of them. That's why Railgun succeeds where Index fails, the MC isn't some whimp with an I win button vs magic and wraps up just about every plot arc with punching the bad guy/girl in the face until they see the error of their ways. Beyond that you actually give a crap about supporting cast in Railgun because they don't just disappear for 2 arcs they are always there in some form or fashion. In conclusion, Touma is a joke.

Which is funny, because Touma is actually great in the railgun series as a foil to Misaka. Those 2 together are gold. The difference being Misaka is always an interesting character, and Touma is a snooze fest with out help.

And that's pretty much why I barely made it through the first season of Index... but I have to give the show credit, without it, there would (probly) be no Railgun series.

Just give me yuri romance in Railgun and Im happy.
