I watched this series a few weeks ago, but put off my review. I was too involved in another series and working on painting up loads of miniatures. So now, I'll take a few minutes and quickly give a review.
|Our four main heroines.|
The series takes place in Academy City, a center of advanced learning and a place where 'esper' abilities are researched and improved. Our main character is a special 'Level 5,' one of a small number in the series.
Railgun takes place in the same world as A Certain Magical Index, and probably a few other series/manga as well. Which threw me for a few curve balls because, since I've read the manga, I was expecting certain scenes to be shown Railgun that were in fact not shown at all. Instead they were included in Index.
|Keitai of the future? Or of 1999?|
|Not seen in this anime... see Index.|
Now saying that I do realize that right now in Japan they are showing A Certain Scientific Railgun S. Sadly this means I'll be waiting a while to see further in this series... unless its a remake like Full Metal Alchemist did with Brotherhood.
I've given my opinion on the series, and now all that is left is to give my rating.
The good parts were good, and the first arc was excellent. My major misgivings are from what was not even included... something I can't help but hold against the series even though I shouldn't.
