Toaru Kagaku no Railgun S episode 21
Oh my god, I am so incredibly shocked! I had no idea any this would ever happen! It’s true, I have no eyes, ears or a sensible mind, so there’s no way for me to expect something like this. Can you feel the overwhelming sarcasm, people? I can.
This episode, other than a punch in the face, was very much like watching a big recap. Mikoto was utterly shocked when she heard the news and she was furious when she connected the dots and figured out that some of the people that cloned her for that level six project were also responsible for creating Febri, an artificial life form whose body constantly secretes a poison that could kill anyone it comes in contact with. Those lollipops apparently contain some kind of compound that neutralises the poison and allows her to live without succumbing to that poison herself.
We all knew this would happen, surely. They focussed so much on those lollipops, and Febri, a girl that appeared out of nowhere, whose parents cannot be found and whose background is unknown, is supposed to be considered human after we just dealt with an army of man-made Mikoto clones? I really don’t think so.
The only fun part about this would be Shinobu’s alliance. Is she on their side after all? Is she on the side that wants to stop this madness? Who knows? Her facial expressions are far from obvious and she’s the one character whose actions are difficult to predict. I just hope I get to see a decent battle now that Mikoto finally told her friends about what’s going on.
