A Certain Scientific Railgun T

 

Synopsis:

An enormous city with a population of 2.3 million spreads out over western Tokyo. In this metropolis, known as “Academy City” due to roughly 80% of the population being students, the development of supernatural abilities—anomalous phenomena which turn the world’s natural laws on their ear—was taking place. Students who underwent the unique curriculum and attained esper abilities were subjected to a System Scan, a physical examination which scored them into one of six rankings, from the powerless Level 0 to the super-powered Level 5. 

 

There are seven individuals who are considered to have reached this pinnacle super-powered level. One of them is Mikoto Misaka. 

 

Nicknamed “Railgun” thanks to her status as the highest-ranked user of “Electromaster,” the ability to freely control electricity, Mikoto is a 14-year-old who attends the prestigious all-girl Tokiwadai Middle School. One of her underclassmen is Kuroko Shirai, a member of the disciplinary organization Judgment. Kazari Uiharu is her colleague, who aspires to be a proper lady, and the urban-legend-loving Ruiko Saten is their friend. 

 

The Daihasei Festival, an event held once a year, loomed large over the peaceful, run-of-the-mill, ever-so-slightly unusual daily life enjoyed by the girls. It was an athletic festival held over the span of seven days, which pitted esper schools against each other in fierce competition. A portion of Academy City was opened up to the public for the duration of the festival, and everyone was in high spirits during the lead-up to the event, which would be telecast for the whole world to see. But they were completely unaware of what was in motion behind the city’s festive scenes...
