    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 ...

    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.

    I recommend this to anyone
    Even though this is a spin off from the Index series, its still a great anime with many elements that allow me to fully enjoy this anime. I recommend this anime to anyone who enjoys supernatural or action anime. Since this has demonstrated more then enough. 10/10 would watch again and again

    HELLS TO THE YAAASSSSS!!!!!
    I've already watched and own both seasons. Loved this anime and very excited to watch again on Crunchyroll. I was a little skeptical at first as I wasn't to into A Certain Scientific Index but a few episodes into this anime and I was hooked. Wishing there was more seasons beyond this.

    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

    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 ...

    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 ...

    Very Good (Thank God On Crunchyroll)
    Great spin off side story of A Certain Magical Index, I find this a little better then it. The only thing I miss is my boy Accelerator xD. All around this anime has great action and some really cool characters! I give it a overall 8.5/10. Good anime to binge if your bored!

  • Great Sci Fi show a must watch
    I like the original series A Certain Magical Index and I feel that the jump into the more scientific aspect of the world that they live in creates a more interesting progression of character interactions. The Main character is very likable and has a very down to earth feel, also is given a break to showcase a more Tsundre aspects of her personality highlighting vulnerability. During the course of ...

    Not quite as brilliant as Index but close
    A Certain Scientific Railgun takes place in the same universe as A Certain Magical Index, so if you like one you will probably like the other. Unlike Index, Railgun has a distinctly slice of life feel to it and what plots there are seem to move slowly. Mikoto is the star here but she seems to have less flare than she did in Index which is a shame.
