Editorial Reviews

Something sinister is growing in Academy City. The shadows are filled with whispers of a project to clone one of the super-powered students known as espers. High-ranking master of electricity Mikoto Misaka laughs off these stories until she comes face to face with a copy of herself. The duplicates are real, and are being mass-produced from Misaka’s DNA, making each one of them a little piece of her. These clones—her sisters—are being systematically murdered in a series of experiments designed to turn a sadistic killer into the strongest esper in history. Misaka vows to save her copies and destroy the project, but this might be one fight she can’t win alone. High-energy battles and intense action explode in this continuation of the Railgun series from the creator of A Certain Magical Index.

    The second season shows us the continual friendship between the four friends and their adventurous life in Academy City though on a technical point this first half should be considered a prequel to the first season of its sibling show A Certain Magical Index.
    The season will give us the usual mix of action/adventure/comedy/angst to keep fans entertained as we also see a new mix of friends and enemies for our young group and of course the usual shadowy conspiracy that lurks behind what is seen. The animation and soundtrack are nice and also appreciated is that we have the same subbed and dubbed cast voicing their character roles nicely.

    A little pricey considering that this set isn't the usual Funimation dvd/blu-ray combo set I actually got this on Right Stuf still if you already have the first season the second season is a must have to own for your anime collection.

    A Certain Scientific Railgun S definitely surpasses it's predecessor in terms of suspense and thrills. The first half of the new season further delves into the Little Sisters master from the first season of A Certain Magical Index, and who knew that there was so much story left to be told? This is definitely an anime to watch out for if you're a fan of character depth and dark mysteries.

    Academy city has settled down a bit since the Level Upper incident, but it does not mean things are quiet. New rumors fly as people look around for money cards in back alleys, and also someone cloning a level 5 esper to see if they can be made via science and not by accident. Of course Misaka laughs at them, even when rumor hound Saten adds her two cents in, until the day she actually runs into someone who looks exactly like her. Now she is on a mission to save her Sisters and to shut down an experiment that never should have started, but can she do it alone or will help arrive from the most unlikey of heroes.

    This plot is a quite a bit darker than the first season, or even of ACMI - this one shows that despite scientific progress, some things should never be done (not the cloning - but how they were used for). But all the characters are there and the story flows very well, the voice dubbing is spot on, and the action sequences are amazing. I will need to wait for the second part to see how it all comes together.

    Very short and to the point, Railgun is the most favorite anime series in my library. The interaction with the friends, and the discovery of the sisters led to one of the great fight scenes which is sometimes missing in other shows. Railgun has laughs and times where she displays truly down to earth human emotions that make you realize that no matter who it is, despair can lead to unwise decisions, but when someone steps up to help there can be a brighter tomorrow. This show is tops for me, and I certainly hope that after season 2 parts 1 and 2 there will be a season 3 for I will lay down hard cash to purchase it immediately.

    As a general rule, I tend to not enjoy anime that seem to blatantly exist for the sole purpose of parading around cute underage girls and putting them in compromising situations, and honestly the first season didn't really do too much for me specifically for those reasons. But I moderately enjoyed the Index series (despite the unneeded fan service) and so I figured I might as well watch the only remaining season of the show that I hadn't watched yet. And despite all of the sexualizing, I do enjoy Mikoto Misaka immensely as a character. Fast forward to the end of the redone Sister's Arc (which this entire batch of episodes basically revolves around) and I'm ready to name this one of my favorite anime of all time. Or maybe one of my favorite story arcs of all time. It's everything Index should have been. A strong lead with fun powers, a compelling heart breaking story that unfolds, and very nice music to accompany all the battles and somber moments. Add in Touma and Misaka's explosive (heh) chemistry and this entire set of episodes is pretty damn close to a perfect anime experience ( at least for me ). This is good stuff people, for anyone worried this might be too much of season one's "cute girls doing cute things +espers" then fear not, because it mostly sheds all of that for this great revision of an already pretty great story arc from the original Index series. BUY this and BUY the second half. It's worth the money.

    Neither volume came with an art box. Those with OCD may get a little pissed because season 1 has one. Show is great. Packaging is crap. Pretty standard region 1 dvd release.

    I must say I enjoyed this season more then a first season most as you start to see different side to railgun as well the story starts to cross paths with Index in which I was wanting to see.

    It may be DVD only like the first season was. This series is very popular in Japan, it could be that they couldn't get the license to release on Blu Ray.
