Man...it's great that i could start watching this finally to get an in-depth look at the sisters arc. Also, i just realized that the Level 6 plan for Accelerator to defeat 20,000 sisters is kinda like EV training in Pokemon if you get the reference lol

Strangely, there's been no Shokuhou Misaki (yet) contrary to expectations.

I think we may see her again some time after everything in this arc has been settled at the end. If that's not the case, we may have to hope for a third season to see her. And we all would welcome that possibility to seeing her story of the Daihasei Festival

Episode 24: Eternal Party

Nice review of episode I'll add some thoughts!



I like the ending like it was a preview of things to come .I guess Last Order was with Accelarator.The sisters drinking milk tea.among others.

Now for Shokuhou Misak she did make an apperance in EP 1.And she appears in the end with everybody else! But she plays more of a role later! Hoping for more Index/ Railgun

That last episode was really epic. Action scenes were pretty well made.

Oh Railgun I will miss you so much.

Now, back to wating season 3 of Index, come on Kadokawa, It has been three years already.
At least, we have the Endymion movie.

She showed up during the pilot episode and apparently appeared for like 2 seconds in the finale.

Anyways, the series was decent but the Silent Party arc was trash imo. I never got attached to it and I originally thought that some other characters would make cameos but nope.

On the other hand, the Sister's Arc was glorious though and I praise JC Staff for its adaptation in that. However, the Silent Part arc just didn't work out for me. In the end, I had to rate this a 7/10 for the series. The finale was weird...with Saten and her mecha, ITEM going all out against science, and those spaces scenes.

Sister's Arc: 9.5/10
Silent Party arc: 4/10

to each their own I guess.

I found the sisters arc too angsty and even though It had to happen because that's how it happened. I disliked that the boy from the spin off series had to come and save the heroine's bacon. She's NOT some poppet in peril.

The above makes It sound like I thought the sisters arc was bad. Not so but I liked it less than the everyone all in, to save the world through the power of friendship. I could wish the sisters played a bigger role. and LOVE that those arrogant snotty (wah! we're all butthurt because we're not espers!) boy got taken down by a level 0.

so I'd probably have reverse ratings compared to yours. :)

I guess the Haggis shortage isn't immanent yet?

Overall I really liked the whole series, and I'm glad Railgun learned not to try to shoulder everything herself. I look forward to more sisters goodness. I'd love to meet the sentient AIM diffusion field girl again... oh my so much stuff.

Technically she's the spin off series character. Also the Sister's arc was originally told from the point of view of Touma as he is the main character of the main series so its expected he's going to get part of the spotlight as he was the focus of the story arc as it was originally told, and he is the central character of the setting.

I've only watched part of Railgun S so I don't know if they overused him to the point of being unnecessary, as I agree that Mikoto is not a damsel in distress, but I do know that anything covered with regards to Accelerator and the Sisters, that Touma is central to that story as it was originally told, and just because they changed the POV doesn't mean they can't just change the story. If they used him too much outside of the story already told in Index that's another thing entirely, however one of the original points of the Sister arc was to show how flawed the esper ranking system is, as well as the search to make a level 6, to begin with and they showed that specifically by Touma, who is technically a level Zero, beating Accelerator who's a character that according to all projections couldn't be beaten by anyone else in the city which of course includes Mikoto. Basically Mikoto and Accelerator were presented as the absolute "rule" that is the common view of the higher ups in Acadamy City, while Touma was presented as the "exception": that throws a wrench into their theories. Basically Mikoto is the one in peril not because she is a girl in need of rescue, but rather because she is the one that actually has the acknowledged power, and is therefore ironically made powerless to prove a point.

Like I said I haven't watched all of S so I don't know if he was over used to the point of devaluing Mikoto in parts where the story isn't actually an Index story and therefore doesn't need to focus on him. Hopefully he wasn't, but you can't really do much about how the parts of the story plays out when they have already played out before.

Really enjoyed the last episode! Once again I don't care if it was anime only, it was really good! Raised it to 9/10 for me. I agree the Sister's arc was too dark, Railgun should be more fun than that IMO. 10000 dead sisters is too dark for it. Very glad they let them help out in the end, everyone helped out really. Can't wait for the next season of whichever RailDex comes out next and will watch the older stuff in the meantime.

If and when the series comes back, I'm hoping to see what this arc is all about

Plus the Railgun side of the Daihasei Festival Arc. I think I would love that for the future Project Railgun

.

As far as I'm concerned he's the spin off. no where near as interesting as the rest of the cast(s)

and yes. I know we are saying a story that played out already. That's the point of my sentence saying it had to happen that way because it already happened that way. I get that.

My point was that the first arc, FOR ME, was no where near as good as the second arc. For the person above the opposite was true. of such differences our fandom is made.

Ah cool I get that. Wasn't sure if you were familiar or not with Index and the spin off character comment led me to believe you weren't as I took it as the literal definition of spinoff rather than a figurative use. Hence I tried to give some context of how the story was constrained by the parallel story already in existence. I need to finish Railgun S so I can comment more freely on the subject. As of right now I only can really comment on the first season of both series.
