Toaru Kagaku no Railgun S episode 12

Putting this episode into words is really hard. I have so many things I want to say about it, some of it good, most of it useless crap, but there is one thing that has been on my mind since the beginning; the predictability. I simply see a pattern here.

[UTW-Mazui]_Toaru_Kagaku_no_Railgun_S_-_12v0v1_[720p][727573A0].mkv_snapshot_06.17_[2013.07.01_23.51.32]Yes! That’s right. It’s always the same pattern. Mikoto finds another way of destroying that level six project, fails, ends up depressed and suddenly encounters another one of her clones, gets motivated again as she realized that her clones are still being mass slaughtered like animals, after which she will be inspired to come up with yet another plan to take down that project. That’s the pattern that I’ve been seeing ever since we learned about those clones and their purpose. I’m not saying that that’s necessarily a bad thing, but it could damage the show by making things a bit too predictable, wouldn’t you agree?

He has the ability to cancel Accelerator’s abilities, so he could prove to be a valuable ally for Mikoto. What happens? She goes in alone again and ends up with her tail between her legs. It’s a dreadful pattern that needs to stop. It was fun the first time, now it’s time for something else.

Before I finished this post and schedule it to be published, I would like to say that I’m generally satisfied by this show. I may sound like I’m disappointed or angry, but I’m not. I tend to be picky when it comes to great shows, that’s all there is to it. I raise the bar ridiculously high and open up a can of whoop-ass when my expectations aren’t fully met, as sad as that may sound (leave me be).
