A Certain Scientific Railgun S Episode 5-7 Review

Firstly, apologies for being extremely, extremely late on the posts. Anything I say would just be excuses, so I’ll get right to it. Because episode 7 is mainly filler and doesn’t go over the major plot points, I’ll be focusing on episodes 5 and 6 for this post and reviewing them in their entirety. Hopefully I can be more timely on these posts in the future. Let’s get started.

Misaka vs Misaka

Dat fight.

The first part of this episode mainly consists of building the character of MISAKA and her connection with her original. It incorporates the Railgun slice of life feel that we’re so used to in an interesting way with how they interact and everything. Looking at the first part of the episode, it doesn’t really feel like it’s going to be as dark as what’s shown at the end of episode 4. The way they build up the connection between the two is quick, fast, and gives the viewers some attachment towards the two before brutally displaying what the rest of the episode has to offer. And man is it unlike what we’ve seen in Railgun before.

God. Dammit.

If it weren’t for the first part of the episode, I wouldn’t feel nearly as much as I do here. They may be clones, but the look in their eyes, and their reluctance, and their overall human nature makes me cringe at the dire situation. And to be perfectly honest, I can’t say that I like Accelerator’s character by itself all too much, that is, until what happens in Index which makes me have more respect for him. But here, he is nothing more than a power-hungry esper looking to be the best. It certainly doesn’t help that he has no sense of compassion whatsoever and his brutality only serves to anger viewers. So why do people like him? Vectors.

Oh gawd what is this?

If it isn’t clear enough by the truck completely crushing MIKASA into a probably unrecognizable pile of flesh and bones, these two episodes are fucking dark given what we’ve seen from Railgun previously. What’s even worse is the fact that Mikasa, a Level 5 of all things, can’t do anything to Accelerator. There’s nothing she can do. He manipulates all vectors and bullets, rockets, electricity, or whatever else you throw at him is basically useless. Well, except for Touma, but that’s a different story altogether. Anyways, I must say that the soundtrack presented when Accelerator introduces himself is very fitting. Not to mention his voice acting. Leave it up to Okamoto Nobuhiko to do an amazing job with voicing Accelerator. Can’t find a more suitable voice for this role than anywhere else.

It’s just like Mikasa to take it upon herself to do everything. It would definitely be badass for her and Nunotaba to cooperate, but that’s probably not going to happen anytime soon. As for Nunotaba finding out that the clones are more human than she thought, that’s just a way for making us feel more sympathetic towards them. Either way, the project isn’t going to stop, and while I’d like to see Accelerator reach a level never reached before, I wouldn’t want to sit through more slaughtering without some kind of comeback. Though, I just know that trying to do everything herself will only end in the characters saying that they have friends for help.

Those casual clothes.

A lot of this episode is basically Kuroko and the others running around doing random stuff. A smaller part consists of Mikasa destroying the facilities. I’m someone who doesn’t mind fillers as long as they’re a good watch, and this one… doesn’t exactly make me feel that it’s good. It’s not terrible, but it’s far from being more entertaining than introducing other Level 5s, and having more abilities thrown around with some interesting story progressions that’s already been going on. I mean, Kuroko is pretty awesome, but there are just more important things to do. But next episode should bring some interesting characters into the fray, and more things will be getting underway. So as long as the series as a whole is great, which it probably will be by the looks of how serious it already is, I wouldn’t mind a few fillers here and there if they don’t take away from the story. Overall, episode 5 and 6 are fairly great, and episode 7 is quite forgettable.
