“To Aru Kagaku no Railgun was as bad as/worse than To Aru Majutsu no Index”Posted: March 27, 2010
Do you guys even remember what Index was like? The only good parts of that show were the Accelerator and Last Order arcs, mostly because there was no Touma to cause some takes-ten-minutes-to-run-two-meters or enemy-waits-to-hear-heroic-twenty-minute-long-speech scenes.
Slow and filled with fillers it may have been, but To Aru Kagaku no Railgun had a storyline. To Aru Majutsu no Index jumped from one arc to the next with no pause. Do you even remember the name “Himegami”? What about “Aureolus”? How about “Sherry Cromwell” or “Hyouka Kazakiri”?
Sometimes I hate being such a big fan of Mikoto (obviously, not her fault). I remember things about this mediocre show “To Aru Majutsu no Index” that I’d rather not recall. Useless characters like “Hyouka” keep popping up in my head, and it annoys me to no end.
BLAH BLAH BLAH RAILGUN BLAH BLAH BLAH MOESHITT!!11 BLAH
Oh yeah, like Index didn’t have moe. I think Railgun did a much better job in reining in moe than Index. Index introduced us to Index and the equally useless Komoe-sensei. Railgun introduced us to characters who aren’t one foot tall and look like babies (though regrettably, Komoe-sensei made a few more unnecessary appearances).
BLAH BLAH BLAH POINTLESS BLAH
Go away, you slice of life haters!
BLAH BLAH BLAH FILLERS!11
Go away, you people who don’t know what “slice of life” means! Like Mikoto says, things are always interesting in Academy City. That doesn’t mean there’s nothing but huge explosions and bad guys flying around in the air. It means life in the city is interesting!
tl;dr To Aru Kagaku no Railgun was great.
P.S.: Gintama, why are you ending?!
