Toaru Kagaku no Railgun S episode 20
We’ve finally arrived at the twentieth episode. It may be my nerdgasm taking right now (thanks to this week’s Shingeki no Kyojin), but I feel like I understood more than usual from this week’s episode, including things I already knew.
First thing’s first; Febri is not human. Big whoop, we all knew, surely. It came as no surprise when they revealed that Febri, just like Mikoto’s clones, was made in some lab by scientists. One project dies and another is born, that’s the way it always works. The only thing that’s really surprising was Mikoto’s surprised reaction when she heard the news.
Next I would like to address the fact that we’re probably not going to see any more of Touma or Index. Touma fulfilled his role when he defeated Accelerator and took away the reason to help him became a level six. After all, why bother when he was defeated by a level zero, right? And as for Index; no idea. Still don’t see the point of showing us that scene.
It all comes down to this; Mikoto will once again have to fight many powerful enemies in order to stop their experiments. Febri escaped and now they either want her dead or back for more experiments. In this case it’s painfully obvious that they want her dead. I can only imagine that Mikoto is going to ask her friends for help this time, because she nearly got herself killed last time.
And finally the last part: what about the girls that were once ordered to stop Mikoto from destroying cloning facilities? It seems that they, too, play a part in their big scheme. I wouldn’t be at all surprised if they were to team up with Mikoto and her friends, although that’s highly unlikely to happen at this point.
