Toaru Kagaku no Railgun S episode 04

Now this is what I call a confusing episode. It would’ve made a lot more sense if this this week’s episode switched with last week’s, because now it feels as though we’re going back in time. What was their angle, seriously?

I don’t care that Mikoto had nothing better to do than to spend her day with a bunch of kids. I care about the fact that we were shown this episode, even though we learned last week that those scientists abandoned that cloning project because they kept getting poor results. The clones were too weak and couldn’t get passed level two, so they abandoned that project, right? Why is it that I saw new scientists and a new clone? What was the point of last week’s episode? Was it just to give us a clue of what’s to come?

She’s like a robot; emotionless, thoughtless and programmed to do only one thing; obey. You could say that that clone is like a high-tech dog. So what the points? What is the point when that clone is supposedly a lot weaker than Mikoto, also known as “the original”?

I must be honest when saying that I’m really not looking forward to next week episode. I’m definitely going to see it, as I’m curious about Mikoto’s reaction now that she’s standing face to face with one of her clones, but the story just took a strange turn. Certain things need to be clarified before I can safely say that it’s a good story.

    Well the thing with the clones is quite obvious. Or didn’t you watch To Aru Majutsu no Index? If that’s the case then I’ll just say that we’re currently watching the third arc of TAMnI from Mikoto’s PoV instead of Touma’s PoV
