I don't meet anyone that hate her and has seen Railgun S. You know, mainly because of everything she had to got through.

But because she's a tsundere, she's called nothing more than a dumb tsundere bitch.

Misaka has a strong believable genuine sort of personality with an equally strong story though the whole duplicate thing is a morally ambiguous issue to say the least.  Compared to Index who, doesn't even have a real name, she feels much more alive and real.  If Touma had a match anywhere in the story, it is most certainly her.  In fact, her and Touma often act like a married couple.  Her unique and interesting abilities aside, it is really her character that stands out.  Though she is supposed to be in middle school, she acts and looks more like a senior in high school if not college.  The things she does is not a match to any believable middle schooler.  Still it does not hinder her character due to this odd mistake.  She is easily one of the all time top ten if not top 5 female anime lead characters.  She is both cute in looks and behavior, which is something many would easily find appealing.  The fact that she tries to hide her more girly and cute sides from the public makes her even more appealing.  She also handles problems pretty well even an obessed lesbian room mate, which could make anyone feel rattled.  She is bright, opptomistic, confident, caring, and creative.  This can be seen with how she solves problems or uses her powers in unexpected ways.

The Railgun series does outshine Index, mostly because Index herself is so empty and somewhat unfinished as a charater who acts half the age of Misaka while Misaka acts twice her age.  it is a odd scenario indeed.  Index is too simple minded, childish, and bereft of a genuine independent personality to find as much appeal.  And since Index is a nun, the way she flirts with Touma is a bit strange for someone as pure and well indoctrined nun as she appears to be at first appearance in the animes.  Even Misaka's quirky and somewhat childish room mate acts more mature than Index.  Even with out those issues, she pales in comparision to the strong appealing character that Misaka is among both animes she stands out.  Even Touma has difficulty standing on par with her.
