If I had a clone, I would get rid of (every single one of) them, because there can only be one of me in this world. My clone would probably feel the same, so it is annihilate or be annihilated.
A certain day to shop
Again, I’m really impressed with how J.C Staff manages to blend in the anime-original content without having it stand out too much. The transition to (where the girls met up at the park to shop) and fro (the talk about clones while chilling) were once more smooth and flowed well.
If I had to venture a guess, by judging from these episodes thus far,
all most some of the slice-of-life moments in Railgun S will be original content, along with the added “bonus” of having Haruue (Hanazawa Kana) – because having additional star power is always nice, isn’t it?
Another certain day to play with kids
For the life of me, I can’t remember if the breakfast scene was original or not, not that it really mattered given how short the scene was, though I’m still leaning towards it being manga material.
People who have watched the first season of Railgun
will should remember the kids that Mikoto played with right at the start (approximately one month has elapsed since then), in which Mikoto had a flashback to.
At the end of the day, whether the Mikoto was accompanying the kids, or the vice versa is very much debatable, thanks to the Gekota badge that fired up Mikoto’s collector spirit. Now, that very same badge that Mikoto painstakingly sought for has some future significance to it, because everything happens for a reason.
Episode thoughts and impressions
My only main beef about this episode was that the character faces looked shoddy at times (I did cap them, but deleted them because who wants to see those anyway), some of which were rather prominent.
I also felt that the cliffhanger would have been better if it stopped exactly after the moment where Mikoto finally meets one of her Sisters for the very first time – without the whole turning around to face her thing. The additional scene after the ED was a neat touch, given that the order of events were mixed up a little, though I’m not sure if it was really necessary or effective. In hindsight, it does go to show that although the Sisters aren’t perfect copies of the Lv5 Railgun (nor even remotely close for that matter), they are still being mass-produced for some other reason.
“As for what that is, we will find out soon.” says me, who attempts to create some hype while pretending to be
lame cool at the same time.
