Ratings & Reviews
Light, funny, and keeps my interest
We came late to this series and it took a long time to try and figure out which one to start with because there are so many incarnations and titles. It turned out that this one was fine to start with. We still haven't watched any of the other ones yet but apparently it doesn't affect the enjoyment of this one. It's easy to follow so we don't feel as if we came in the middle of a series.
It's good that there's an English dub, because of the action and story line involved. Just makes it easier to watch, it's a personal preference. The light comedy is a plus, too. Overall, we're looking forward to eventually catching all of the anime in this series if the others are as good as this one.
Railgun Kicks Ass And Takes No Prisoners!!
This is better than A Certain Magical Index in that there's less talk and more action. In Index certain characters (Toma) would give a long rambling speech before any action would occur. Here Mikoto jumps in feet first most of the time which makes for a more enjoyable viewing experience Good watch.
