  • Its Railgiun! Whats not to like ???
    This is a great addition to the series, and its nice to see some new characters and some of the regulars get a bit more screen time. A good story with lots of twist and turns.

    The usual cliff hangers endings to make sure your just waiting for the next episode
    milliseconds after finishing the end credits. Its a must watch!!!

  • I just am so happy when i watch
    When I first started watching, I watched because it is a part of a certain series (index) then I started to love railgun the more I watched. it was super fun t watch because of kuroko and her trying and failing to win her Onee-samas love by any means necessary and it can be a slice of life and get serious at some points well than

  • First season is trashy
    First season is kind of trashy; it has some high points, but mostly it's this weird combination of so-so fantasy/sci-fi slice of life, over-wrought dramatic shounen anime arcs, and a little bit of weird exploitation of middle school girls. None of the villains are worth much, and more than half the season is "filler". There's character moments that seem important but are never brought up in the ...

  • Never seen anything this good.
    Found this amazing show after watching the original series (index) that this is a spin off to. And somehow, this show is legitimate better. The mix between slice of life and massive amounts of action is amazing and along with story arcs that push emotion into the viewer, this series can't be topped.

    Overrated Stars for a Side Character
    Railgun fans are overloaded with tsunderism. It is a Spinoff. she is just a typical tsundere. From the original light novels, she is not that likeable of a character.
    Don't get me wrong the Index anime has so much wrong with it, but that has more to do with taking out so much material that you lose the essence of the light novel.
    This story is almost too slow-paced and slice of life.
    She's ...

    An this is quality girl power show
    USA and Europe should learn from Japan how to create relatable, lovable, and actually well written woman characters. When You are a fan of DC or Marvel and You are fed up of SJW agendas they are pushing aggressively, this show is like breeze of fresh air when coming from the swampy area.
    Every character here earned their respectable position, sympathy and powers by their own experiences and ...

    More interesting than the main story
    Although a side story to 'a certain magical index' i find that the characters in this have more depth and are more interesting as a whole. It doesn't get preachy about being a hero/ villain and retains its integrity as a superpowered anime. It also has more humour, at least for me, than the other stories associated with it.

  • Great Quality Anime!
    Great series for a spinoff tbh. I didnt know it wasnt a main core series in the first place so I plan to watch the main one. I kinda had a feeling that Touma was an interesting character to begin with and the fact that I learned that he's actually the main protagonist in the series is even cooleer.

  • Overall a very good show
    I love this show for a lot of reasons. I love the characters, I love the fights, I love the setting, and I love how this show ties into the collective universe of Index and Accelerator. The power system is really cool and I really like seeing a cool female lead. A very good show you will not regret watching.
