Toaru Kagaku no Railgun S episode 06

Finally some long-awaited action! It wasn’t much but it’s always better than nothing. I wouldn’t complain at all if the remaining episode were like this one. I have said it before and I’ll say it again; comedy is what kills this show. A bit of well-timed comedy is great, but don’t go overboard with it.

You watch a show where Mikoto, a powerful “Level 5” esper and one of the main characters, is one of the strongest characters around, only to find out that she’s easily beaten by some insane, power-hungry freak that enjoys killing Mikoto clones as much as I like scarfing down hamburgers. At what point does one start to feel uncomfortable when watching this stuff? I’m not good with these types of insane characters to begin with, so I got freaked out pretty quickly, but I refuse to believe that that character could be labelled as interesting. He’s just an insane kid with a thirst for blood and power, nothing more.

In fact, I’ve developed several, but I think the most logical explanation would have to be that he got stronger after killing so many of her clones. It may have given him a power boost or something, which would also prove their theory about pushing one or more of them to the next level.

The second half was kind of annoying after you’ve just seen an incredible match-up, yet it remained interesting somehow. There’s so much we don’t know about those clones and their plans to level some of the other espers. What to ‘they’ want? Stronger weapons to use against other countries? There’s still so much that needs to be explained…

  1. Fukou da says:

    The thing that makes Accelerator so much stornger is the nature of his ability “Vector Change”.

    It allows him to manipulate the vectors of anything that touches him, be it physical, liquid or even energy. Some of the scientist in Academy City have theorized that Accelerator would survive being hit by a nuclear bomb because he could manipulate the shockwave, the heat and the radiation so that it wouldn’t touch him.

    In To Aru Majutsu no Index Accelerator have used this ability to among other things, pick up a building and throw it at someone that pissed him off.

  2. Oops, I meant Psychic 😛
