Toaru Kagaku no Railgun S episode 05

It doesn’t matter how you look at it, it simply was an odd episode. I’m just happy right now that we have an idea of where they’re trying to go with the story, because I’ve been wondering about that for some time now.

Anyone would’ve been startled, confused and/or upset if you came across a clone of yourself. Mikoto had the power to force that clone to answer all of her questions, yet she let it slide.

Yeah, that really bothered me. I wouldn’t have let that clone out of my sight and followed it everywhere it went. Instead she just let it go its own way while she hacked a few networks again to see what the point of those clones were, only to find out the horrible truth that, although weak, they are still being created for one single purpose.

Why would anyone want to create weak clones when the world is flooded with much stronger espers? It really opened my eyes when it turned out that those clones are being used as target practice for Level 5 espers, hoping a few of them might ascend to the next level if they just killed enough of them. That’s quite horrible and awesome at the same time, isn’t it?

Just sit down, relax and think about this one; thousands of human clones are being killed so that barely a hand full of people may get stronger. I read a few surprised posts earlier today, even though I already said that it’s always about power when it comes to organisations. That has always been the case and it always will. I’m just curious right now about Mikoto’s future decisions.
