Episode 1:

Well fuck me, that was pure awesome. Loved every second of it. It's so good to finally have this show back, and with a good episode as well.



Oh, and i can't wait for Accelerator to show up

Episode 1

The ED was actually even more intense than the episode itself. The episode it's was a bit doubtful in places however it wasn't the worst re-introductory episode. The side characters are still the same, which means they aren't very amazing. The two girls that we didn't see before are currently just two good girls that we haven't seen before, not much to them. The scene were Saten was chased was amazingly pointless, only meant to have Misaka be herself but it pulled off producing a nice action scene while introducing the characters again.

You can easily watch Railgun without watching Index. You may not get a few little jokes or references but most of the show is self-contained, so you won't miss much by not having seen Index.

You will need to watch the first Railgun before you start with the new series though.

Huh.

Episode was "eh, fair enough."
Although that last part with Touma pisses me off, as I thought in the PVs that it was relevant to the sisters arc, which it turns out to not be now.
Also: Best freaking half a second in the entire episode:

I dropped Railgun like a rock when I first tried it. It was the first series in the franchise I tried.
I honestly didn't find it watchable before seeing Index.
Watching this season of Railgun without seeing Index is in the end not going to work out too well though in any case.

I missed this, all the way down to the granny-voice. Guess I should continue reading the Light Novels soon, I think I'm almost 1/3 of the way through them.

Seriously, only Index/Railgun would have 38 Light Novel volumes and counting, holy shit.

If you're referring to Railgun, it was created independently from the Light Novels. The first season can essentially be considered mostly filler.
Misaka basically got her own manga spin-off, which itself came after the first anime.

Yeah it was great and I think this was to help out anyone who needed reminding so even though I thought it was a great first episode not everyone will but it will only get better. There however was a major concern but considering its clear no one reads the manga or the light novels of index I will just shut up. This series is a spin off of the most popular light novel in Japan for good reason and anyone who hasn't seen the first will really miss out by not watching this. Big fan of all the to aru series so I couldn't be more happy to see this series get attention again the good news is two seasons so far so it shouldn't disappoint.

This and Kyojin should be the best action anime this season unless you adore mecha well if they both go according to the manga they certainly will be. As for types of action Kyojin will be the serious and tragic type while this will be lighter be with serious undertones but nothing too dark. I think this covers all the anime this season now so hopefully this should help anyone pick out the anime they want to watch for this season.

I wonder if there will be blood.
You can't have Accelerator in your show and not have any blood!
