Toaru Kagaku no Railgun S episode 19
Well, at least there weren’t any parties for as far as I could tell. I guess I could count that as an improvement over the last two episodes? I think this was the last ‘peaceful’ episode we’ll see in a while though.
This episode revolved entirely around Febri, a little blonde-haired girl that has no parents and nowhere to go. She is quite possible one of the most adorable anime characters that you will ever lay eyes on. That is why it makes it so easy to believe that she isn’t entirely human, at least not a normal one. She could’ve very well been manufactured like Mikoto’s clones. That would explain why she only knew Mikoto’s name, I think. Don’t think it would be a reasonable explanation as to why she was there in the park that day though.
Febri’s cuteness is unbearable, but to dedicate an entire episode on seeing her eat, shower, play and walk about is kind of wasteful, wouldn’t you agree? It would’ve been okay for the first ten minutes; a nice meal, a hot shower and a bit of play time with the girls. The rest would’ve been better spent on answering the many unanswered questions.
I, to this day, still have no idea as to why they briefly showed us that scene where Index showed up. What was the point? You finish a battle with the help of Touma, finish that whole cloning business, show us Index briefly, introduce us to Febri and now we get yet another glimpse of their latest enemies? The order is really messed up, but okay… I’ll just have to wait and see how this plays out before I make myself seem like a bigger idiot.
