A Certain Scientific Railgun S Episode 1

The Second Season of A Certain Scientific Railgun, oh how I’ve been waiting for this series to start! :D

First impressions not required and would be very bias :) Its all the old crew back together for some further fun and if you’ve watched the first season and/or read the Manga’s you will not be disappointed.

This time were following the Sisters arc with the lovely Shokuhou “The Queen” causing some fun along the way.
Having read the Manga I know the story Arc yet the episode still produced some surprises which made me smile (Nice work).

The series starts with a quick introduction of the gang…

Saten is in trouble yet again, Uiharu uses her skill to identify where she is so that…

… Shirai then uses her teleport ability after popping on her “Judgement” band to get them there Asap.

As they arrive Misaka turns up in her usual style looking for her friends and sorts out the gang in her usual manner without breaking a sweat, ZAP!!! All this action before the credits are even up! :D

You got to love Misaka’s character :D

Then we move back onto following the Manga where The Queen is introduced and you get a quick idea of what her ability is about, though her biggest gripe about Misaka is that she can’t use her ability to manipulate her due to her Electric personality.

Then we go to the hospital to visit Banri which if you have watched the previous series you will already know about Kiyama’s experiment and her rescue. However if you only read the manga, after Kiyama goes’t to prison for the level upper incident the rest of that Arc isn’t continued and the Sisters Arc is explored. As such the rest of this episode was a complete surprise to me :D

While at the hospital, Haruue (There friend who was with them) is kidnapped!

Misaka gets involved as usual and stops the helicopter from taking off until they drop Haruue!  Luckily thanks to Shirai and Saten she is save.

The convicts realise who the Esper girl was and realise they maybe in for it… They would have been left along but unfortunately they still had Misaka’s bag which had a present for Banri in it. So Shirai used her teleportation ability to almost fly after the helicopter!

And well, the helicopter didn’t last long after that and as Saten rightly said, it was just Misaka being her usual over the top destructive self.A Certain Scientific Railgun S Ep 1 - AnimeMage.com

And then right at the end stating the obvious the man with the magic breaker KamijouA Certain Scientific Railgun S Ep 1 - AnimeMage.com

All I can say is that I watched this as soon as I had the opertunity, I’m sat her writing about it bouncing with energy as I can’t wait for the next episode!!!

One of my favourite anime’s this season and possibly this year! If you haven’t seen the first season or A Certain Magical Index I suggest you make sure you watch them when you get the chance!

Enjoy! I know I will :D
