High-energy battles and intense action explode in this continuation of "A Certain Scientific Railgun!"
Something sinister is going on in Academy City. The shadows are filled with whispers of an organization cloning 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. After learning that 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 organization responsible for the project.
As Misaka prepares to face off against the organization’s power-hungry esper, she discovers that she wasn’t the only victim of the scientific forces conspiring within the city - and that’s something Misaka and the girls of Judgement simply won’t stand for. It’s time to get even, in A Certain Scientific Railgun S!

Ratings & Reviews
The single greatest story ark in anime (as far as I'm concerned) for a steal.
This is a fantastic deal for a great show, the picture and sound quality is stellar, it is more than worth your money. But as usual with funimation the extras are lacking. Why doesn't funimation include the MMR specials as well? Is it because they lack the authority or something? Cause its a real shame.
The best season of Index/Railgun yet
I was skeptical when I realized that this season was stretching the Accelerator arc (originally only 5 eps) out over 15 eps. But wow, was it worth it! This may be the best story of this franchise because of how much time they took to develop it. The philosophies of "science without morality" that make up the core of Academy City. Exploring how Misaka feels about being the unwilling subject of these experiments. In Index we meet Misaka when she is at her breaking point and driven to utter despair, in this season we see how she got there.
At some point the story becomes about Misaka going it alone to destroy the research labs involved in the experiments. The sudden shift into a tense, serious mission reminded me a lot of Steins;Gate. The assassins sent to stop her became some of my favorite characters in this show.
The Febri story arc that takes up the rest of the episodes was fine. I've never watched the dub for this show, so I can't comment.

A must have if you're an index and rail-gun fan
If you've been collecting the Blu-rays of index and rail-gun now's your chance to pick up the second season of railgun it is a must-have for any fan of the series I highly recommend this second season great series
Sadistic, exploitative and disappointing
The First Season of Railgun was the perfect anime. Interesting empathetic characters, great music, intriguing plot. Season two is sadistic lolita snuff.
At least the last few episodes after the "Accelerator Arc" are worthwhile.

I bought Railgun season one awhile ago and now I've completed the set with the purchase. It's an excellent series with exciting action, funny slice of life moments, and a great plot. Character development is amazing, but sometimes it feels rushed in some scenes. All in all, an excellent purchase for the overall quality and price.
The best story arc of the entire Index/Railgun franchise BY FAR

Railgun S is the second season of A Certain Scientific Railgun. This season is mostly the Sisters arc which was first covered in A Certain Magical Index's 3rd light novel and the first season of it's anime. Railgun S's first 16 (technically 17) episodes cover that same story arc, but from Misaka's point of view. Not only does Railgun S expand the Sisters arc and give us all of the background of how Misaka got into the situation in the first place...it's also just honestly one of the most well-adapted anime arcs I have ever seen in my entire life. The pacing of the episodes is excellent and the storytelling is top notch. A lot of people, myself included, would actually suggest watching the Sisters story arc as presented here in Railgun S rather than watching the A Certain Magical Index version. If you love the Index/Railgun franchise PLEASE buy this if you don't own it. I promise you it's absolutely worth owning and watching.
