Toaru Kagaku no Railgun S episode 08
Why in the hell did I have a Zettai Karen Children flashback during this episode? And I’m not even taking about that awesome spin-off, but about the childish original. I wouldn’t really go as far as to call this episode childish.
We get to meet a few new espers during this episode, all of which were hired to stop those remaining two facilities from being attacked. We all knew it was going to happen, so there’s no way anyone could’ve been surprised. Mikoto knew what she was getting mixed up in, and she knew that she would eventually get caught if she just rushed in like that.
It’s kind of strange that Mikoto hasn’t called for help yet. She’s always been the lone wolf-type, but even she knows her limits. She could’ve at least asked her sister for some assistance, especially since the rumours of Mikoto clones have been going around for quite some time now. Maybe Mikoto’s scared that Kuroko will take a few clones home with her?
All joking aside, what was with Frenda though? Frenda was one of those mercenary espers. A little blonde girl with the ability to blow stuff up. I immediately thought about Zettai Karen Children when I saw all those stuffed animals… Why? Why stuffed animals? I understand that she’s a little girl, but I don’t think that’s of any importance when she is used to killing people. You may be surprised to hear this, but even the sweetest of children lose their innocence when they kill someone. At least give her a few grenades or something else that she can blow up. Those teddy bears were embarrassing. I had no idea whether I should just shout “Cuuuuute!” or close my eyes until it was over.
