    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 ...

    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 ...

    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 ...

    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.

    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, ...

    My Absolute Favorite Series
    CR needs to get the licensing for this again. So bummed that CR and Funi split up. Really killing my queues. I'm hoping amends will be made, but otherwise I gotta wait and see where the better shows are. It's been a while since I had to look at separate sites for shows.

    Crunchy roll uses Garbage subs
    Garbage sites that ruin the characters personality are used here, they translate the japanese incorrectly into shitty english words no one would use. Get new subs or drop the whole anime, youve literally ruined it with these horrible subs I dont know where in the fuck you found such low quality bullshit, we pay for this catalogue and you cant even curate it properly, CHANGE THE FUCKING SUBS

    It's a great show but...
    I really enjoy both the Index and Railgun spinoff series. I prefer Railgun over the main series because I find the cast to be, in general, more likable. It also delves more into the esper/science side of things instead of the magic/religious which I find a bit more interesting. The one thing I hate about this show (and actually has nothing to do with the show itself but the people that translated ...

    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
