Being weaker than a saint.
>Have a mikoto feel all super and awakened by using the AAA
>NT17 comes around reveal that the AAA ain't shit without crowley especially her knock off and even then it needs a really good pilot
>She probably still can't beat saints
>All Kamachi girls are insane
Fixed that for you.
>implying there are 9965 Misakas shittier than Misaka
She held her own against one in NT6.
She's lucky Level 5's are ranked by usefulness to science cause arguably both Meltdowner and possibly even Gunha are stronger than her
>my perfect wife
>She's only fourteen years old
>Calling cops there's pedo here
Mugino is stronger but Kamachi logic dictates the stronger person usually doesn't win, unless you're Kakine. So does that make him an inverted jobber?
She isn't getting her ass taped RIGHT NOW
What do you accomplish by taping her ass?
Being so perfect, it's making her a bit unhinged.
Mugino current Mugino isn't as stupid as villain Mugino. Besides people act like Mugino lost to a tired Mikoto because she is weak when it was always because she is terrible at fighting. Mugino has tons of fire and her ability is fairly malleable but Mugino herself basically falls apart when enemy can dodge too well or block. Out of all the level fives she is the least likely to make mid battle adjustments even to save her life. I wonder why she stopped using the spread shot thing, was it because she got the ability to shoot more than for lasers at once in NT12?
I go around and say I'd love to fuck middle schoolers here and people seem offended. threads like this exists and it's totally fine to sexualize them.
I just don't understand why you guys beat around the bush so much.
>not being balls deep inside Mikoto 24/7
What the fuck is Touma thinking
>emotionally childish (women lol)
>prone to aggression
>doesn't rely on others
>bottles up all her problems until she does something drastic
>blames herself for anything that goes wrong
Well you can't actually do the things you are talking about to a fictional anime character. You're supposed to be able to emotionally relate and react to characters as if they were actually real people. If you don't, there's no point in watching television or shows.
>What the fuck is Touma thinking
About how nice it would be to get some sleep that wasn't the result of losing consciousness due to grievous injury.
So what? There are anime ladies that people find hot that are in their 30s. That doesn't mean that /a/ is suddenly a place to talk about 3D 30 year olds. I bet you don't even watch anime and know nothing about Misaka.
Aiwass, some people are talking about 3DPD in my fucking thread. They do not belong in my pure world.
>Implying the police in a Kamachi story care
They actively use their own to seduce potentially dangerous middle school girls.
No, she's becoming unhinged because she's realized that becoming too perfect drives you crazy so she's trying to approach perfection by working backwards.
And if you missed it yesterday:
>And you both know that performing an armlock means holding my arm to your crotch, don’t you? I’m not letting you do additional damage by going all ‘kyah, pervert!’ after the fact! Especially you, negligee big sister. Based on the feeling on my arm, you aren’t wearing any underwear, are you!?
If they're going full "p-please buy the accel manga guys" then I see Estelle showing up. The only other option is Ollerus who based on the calendar should be fighting Gunha right about now.
>unironically promoting self-induced schizophrenia
>She blushed as she used some tools to combat the foundational component that directly attached to her slender back and connected all the different weapons together.
>Why does Misaka’s swimsuit bother me more than anyone else’s? wondered Kamijou with a tilt of the head.
>Definite alluring feminine curves could be seen in the bodylines illuminated by the moonlight.
>“How does it feel?” quietly asked Misaka Mikoto as bluish-white light erupted from the boosters attached around her round hips.
>alluring feminine curves
Curves mean little without a good smell to go with them to a scent connoisseur like Touma.
Did you miss the chapter where they skipped a week and Frenda didn't come to meet Saten? We're currently a few days past the battle royale, on the 13th.
I forgot Frenda and Saten's arc happened
>forgetting the arc that introduced best girl
Shame on you.
Pokemon crossover never.
Mugino could not beat a seriously tired PTSD Mikoto that was since days living a double life day and night.
This seriously does not speak in Mugino's favour who was really well rested compared to a beat up Mikoto.
Can't be a character of her own without thinking of Touma every 5 seconds borderline stupidity that makes her oblivious yo anything magic related.
Status quo, untainted by darkness even if it fucking blows on her face twice in a row, can't make a move on her romantic interest yet spergs and fucks shit rvery time Touma just speaks with a female.
If you don't claim him don't complain when others do.
I could continue but whatever.
Wherever the actual manga get's past volume 13 novel I guess people will start to pick up interest again.
>Tfw translations stoped at chapter 73
>and ch 110 just went out in japan
It hurts to like this franchise
Thats not so bad
Mikoto got ABRAHADABRA'd for trying to touch Aleister's toys.
She was cursed for several minutes before Touma touched her, he wondered if it did any lasting damage. She knocked out for hours and got sent to the frog doctor. Mikoto said she was fine but we don't know for sure if it did anything, Touma said the same thing when he got mind wiped.
Its normal, thats the best Misaka doujin outthere.
They are both tsunderes so of course they are not going to be holding hands in public, doesn't mean they are not together.
Accel was smiling at something that wasn't a loli for fucks sake
So it's it a her or not?
not that it matters but i must know
It's definitely a guy, this scene proves it.
>They probably realized that traps are more popular now so they have to get with the times.
Or they are getting desperate with the low sales and trying to pander to the degenerate audience. Not like they already didn't pander to it, though.
>The current state of Index
I just can't get myself to care. At least I tried early on New Testament, but now I can't even will myself to try. What happened that I can't even give a single fuck about Crowley himself doing stuff?
Save us Fiamma.
The first 10 volumes of NT are interesting enough. After the WW3 arc I was knee deep in the series and couldn't stop.
It's the conclusion to NT10 and everything beyond that made me go from "holy shit when's the next volume?" to "okay what's kamachi gonna do this time?". At least it feels like things will get back on track in NT18.
Honestly I think people were in the wrong to expect everything in NT to be like WW3. Kamachi is probably only wanting to bring out climaxes like that at the end. NT's pacing would be odd if it was WW3 arcs in a row. But he fucked up because this NT11-17 would've been better off being the first volumes of NT, and then followed by Othinus arc into whatever is coming next.
OT was a progressive build up into a climax. NT went right into one with Othinus' arc but he probably realized he couldn't keep making consecutive arcs like that if the series was gonna keep going for this long, and went into a smaller arc like the one that just ended.
Basically, OT's pacing was ideal because it went:
>Slow start, lots of foreshadowing and introducing characters important to the endgame of it
But NT went:
>explain OT's ending while leading right into a bigger threat while still introducing important characters, but the endgame isn't in sight, because it's only the beginning
To me, he just fucked up the order of things. I do believe he manages the large character roster fine, because he can tie in the "unimportant" characters whenever.
>explain OT's ending while leading right into a bigger threat while still introducing important characters
And then the biggest threat just got multiplied into several holy shit tier bosses, and then suddenly got erased from existence by a normal high school boy.
Fuck this shit.
NT1-8 was the build up for a completely different arc. NT11 and so on is it's own build up, every thing from misaki being forgoten to germaine has played a part novels since.
just like every other villain. Besides the gods weren't villains from the get go.
OT felt great because it felt well planned. Most of the important stuff that was shown or got started in the first volumes came back or reached their conclusion at the end and it felt just right.
>Index is sought by magicians at the start and throughout the story, and WW3 showing what happens when one actually gets his hands on her
>Touma memory loss and faking it in front of Index at the start, and WW3 having Index find out the truth then having the long awaited talk with Touma.
>The right hand vs right hand mirror match between two different characters, rather than Touma vs not-Touma and their harem powers.
>Accelerator's entire character arc reaching a satisfying conclusion, which made his appearances in NT awful because it was all "look it's Accelerator! Please buy this novel." with no real arc for him. Same goes for Hamazura to a smaller degree since he first appeared halfway through the story.
>Volume 4 foreshadowing the angel stuff for WW3 together with its science mirror in the artificial angel of AC.
The two things that weren't properly resolved were a proper answer for the invisible thing and Mikoto going all the way there while completely ignorant only to be ignored by Touma. And I feel like those things should have been the focus of the story for the arcs that immediatly followed.
>Have the loss of Touma be a gigantic failure and source of guilt for Mikoto. Make finding out what happened her main motivation to properly get involved in the magic side early on, working as a filler protagonist fo a while instead of dumb gimmick for quick shipper sales while not participating in the real plot until very late.
>Keep Touma "dead" for a while, travelling with Othellus and Fiamma offscreen before bringing him back and THEN going trough with the magic god bullshit and his own character development.
It just felt like Kamachi totallt fucked up the pace for the sake of a "lol I'm bringing Touma back immediatly so anticlimatic" gag
>only redeeming quality is her hero complex
I know the "bad writing" meme is forced as hell but this is just hilarious.
I wouldn't call it worship dude...her evil cackling and creepy faces are troubling
How does it feel being trapped in 2007?
>muh denial power!!!!
Her obsession is exactly what makes her interesting because of what it could lead to. What may(and probably will) ruin her, however, is that this obsession won't lead her to what it should to.
Mikoto's extreme loyalty and pure love is one of her best characteristics.
And is also shown to be a bad thing in the novels. Her hero worship, obsession with power and Touma, general ignorance of the world at large (the stage where Touma stands on), and inferiority complex is actually a major part of her character, and what drives her development for most of NT.
It's shown to be both good and bad, which I think makes her a more complex character as a result.
>get excited for progress when she acquires the AAA
>basically no follow up in the following two volumes besides Aleister bullying her with no apparent long-term consequences
Another reason why this Kamisato arc has been painful.
I really wanted villain Mikoto
My mental fan fiction had Accelerator, Misaki, Touma, 10032, and her father team up to save her. The Will of the Network would activate Nuit and erase Misaka's mind.
NT18 can't come any faster. I don't even care who shows up in England, I just want to move away from the tired Yuiitsu/Mikoto/Kamisato/Magic God plot. Maybe something will finally happen with Laura.
OT definitely did not feel well planned when it was partway through. There were significant gaps between the important parts that made it feel like they'd been completely forgotten. The only reason you get the impression it was well planned was because the final quarter tied all of the seemingly random events together so well. NT could very well do the same thing, so I'd wait till the endgame before passing judgement.
My only issue is with the appearance of the magic gods after Othinus. There should have been more of a break between their reappearance where they should have been purged immediately by a more foreshadowed Kamisato and finished off by Aliester and Noukan.
Speaking of Kamisato. He really felt more like an alternate version of Touma than a bizzaro one by the end like everyone was expecting. He was a cunt, but I think that sort of character was necessary to highlight how Touma had changed after NT 9 as well as get him out of his post-NT10 slump.
but it has't really affected her character other than make her interactions with Touma a bit more tragic. I actually say that the fact she's moved on from it has had a great affect on her character overall, since she doesn't rely on him to solve her problems.
I don't feel it's quite the same. The first half of OT was mostly disconnected, but that's because things weren't still in motion, so the different volumes were short adventures that set up the pieces on the board, and even back then the Catholic church was shown to be a recurrent antagonist. Once Vento came out everything was a constant escalation for WW3, save for Battle Royale, but that was a setup for DRAGON, plus a setup for Accel and Hamazura that eventually took them to Russia as well
NT begins with a setting already fleshed out, instantly puts the Gremlin plot at the forefront and keeps it running for 10 volumes for a resolution that at least in my opinion was beyond disappointing with the lil' Othinus copout. After that things just keep happening and the magic gods that required 10 volumes for the demise of one are jobbing in mass to this brand new character and etc etc.
She doesn't go extreme enough
Hasn't the man suffered enough? At this rate he'll become a creepy cat lady (male).
There's no escape from the crazy, one can only either embrace it or be so pure they don't realize it.
I feel like the first 10 volumes of NT were just an epilogue for WW3. I think that going straight into another plot development arc would have ignored the aftermath of the previous one way more than Gremlin.
At the end of the day the aftermath of WW3 was the main focus of the majority of NT-1-10 . Gremlin only came to power and Baggage City only seperated from AC as a result of it and Freshman and Yuuitsu only show up as a result of Accelerator going on cleanup duty for the Darkness of AC.
I'm actually ok with mini-Othinus since her sacrificing herself would have felt like a cop-out redemption. Her being powerless is a much greater punishment since she must observe the world knowing that she will never again have the power to change it. Which will hit the hardest with Touma's eventual death. Though I'll go back on my stance on this stance if she fades into complete irrelevance or gets her powers back while Touma is alive. Since it will render her punishment pointless.
While the resolution of the Magic Gods wasn't great. I'm glad the magic gods did get shafted in the end, rather than showing up as villains each volume since it would have led to a shitty Shounen style powercreep. I also like Yuuitsu, so I've been enjoying reading about her BTFO Kamisato these past few volumes.
I think NT's real problem is it's lack of SS volumes that usually served to showcase characters and concepts we'd never get to see in the main series. They made the world feel alive and showed that events didn't just happen around Touma, which benefited both of them.
NT 11 is a good example of a volume that should have been a side story due to not being relevant to the main one. It would have been a good way to Introduce Kamisato as well.
>I heard something popping and bursting from the chests and hips of the men around me.
>It was the lithium batteries of their radios and cellphones.
>The explosion in their pockets and right next to their skin was enough to smash the bone.
>Explosion strong enough to smash bones right on your chest
Oh fuck, is Kamachi going to keep the crazy brutal deaths even when the volume is outside Virtual Reality?
>NT18 its about an enterily new unnamed character in a new setting and his unlucky adventures
>Final chapter is full zetsubou and reveals that his name is
Edward Alexander Crowley
Lithium explosions can be pretty fucked up, but yeah, I was expecting it to be more toned down in the real world.
>“And if they’re going to throw out their morals, I’ll just have to do the same. If that domineering bunny is going to look down on me, I’ll just have to get some low angle shots of her crotch!!
Satoru is a man with his priorities set straight.
>There was a brand new possibility here and it might allow her to peer into a world she had never before seen, but if she did that, it would be “someone else” standing there, not Misaka Mikoto. Or so it seemed to her.
>The threat she felt here was equal to or possibly even greater than what awaited outside. The threat in here – or the identity of what it would produce – far surpassed what she could handle on her own.
>She must not touch this dragon.
>Doing so would definitively set her growth in the wrong direction.
>If she wished to walk by that boy’s side, she could not continue this way.
>She could not.
So, do you guys feel like she has or will continue to develop in a wrong direction or is it already done? How good of a job is Kamachi doing in this department?
She won't do it anytime soon, but the window is probably still open. I don't think it is actually something she can do on her own. With all the talk about AAA accepting her in might end with her replacing Noukan as Crowley's hitman.
>the reason nobody has explained magic to mikoto is so crowley can be the one to do it and he twist it to make all magicians look bad
Naru is such an overlooked piece of ass
She should be put to use as a breeder/sextoy, not a wetworks assassin
>Misaka can't even be flat properly
Why is she so shit? Making flat chest girls cute is not even that hard
Even Index's body can get Touma's blood flowing. He's been blue balling for billions of years. He'd probably beat it to Kuroko in a parka at this point.
Those legs and hips would get everyone's blood flowing .
Index is made for breeding.
Come on now we've been over this plenty of times anon. There are much better girls, even more specifically much better brown-haired middle school girls.
Irrelevant girls from shit series could never compare to the goddess herself.
So much lying in just one sentence, impressive.
Only third best in her series.
Not being allowed to show the legendary Quensette is what led to Kamachi creating Seike.
Find them yourself, can't go three steps without tripping over one.
>lose to a thing they made
>that was meant to beat them specifically
>it was there back up plan if Touma didn't work out
>just like with AAA the lost largely because they don't go all out and got caught off guard
>They could get out instantly if they weren't nerfed
Maybe in Railgun, I doubt she's even top 20 in Index, let alone the rest of Kamachiland.
Rightfully so, she takes up precious screen time that could be used on the best girl Kamachi has ever created.
Anon you have to remember.
>there are 7 living named slightly nerfed magic gods
>two angel like being
There goes twenty right there off the top of my head that should still beat her with AAA. If we are going by all time including currently nerfed people, the list grows even more.
There's a buttload of magic gods. I don't think they should be counted, or at least not individually. Magic Gods should occupy the top as a category, otherwise the top 20 is going to be all magic gods or something.
Anyways, Mikoto w/AAA is gonna probably be near the end of the list. With it, she should be a bit above Saint level, so that's why..
Isn't the Accel manga the one with the naked teenage girls (inb4 they are 10 or some shit I call them by the age they look and behave like not the number the guy who draws them assigns them) and the boys who look like girls?
Most espers and scientists don't know the existence of magicians, and not every student who enrolls become an esper (level 1 and above), so they are talented in their limited spectrum.
She is overpowered, being capable of killing with sand and iron makes you overpowered, she may not be the most powerful being in the franchise but she still is beyond the regular citizen troubles, she even admitted that it was hard for her to understand people with lesser troubles because of how her ego kept her going until she become a level 5, that's how it works, every level 5 in the series is a potential sociopath murderer, it's just that most of them keep close friends with powerless people to have some sense of stability by dealing with daily normal shit
I'm re-reading OT15 and I'm at the part where Mugino asks Hamazura to throw a body bag into an incinerator. Is it possible that Yumiya is the one that's in there? If so, that's pretty dark.
If we assume that Kakine didn't get rid of Yumiya, she would've still died 3 days before the Battle Royale by ITEM, necessitating in them hiring Chimitsu instead for sniping Oyafune Monaka.
It's not Yumiya unless Mugino is fond of carrying around the corpses of dumb bird girls.
I like that she's the only girl to have been princess carried by Touma twice
She's going to win
You're a piece of shit anon. You obviously don't know anything about strength because if you actually paid attention to the series you'd realize the espers are easily the most powerful in the series by a long shot and nobody even comes close to them. I used to be like you until I actually sat back and thought about it for a while.
No he couldn't you retarded bitch face! He couldn't even harm Saten if he wanted to without suffering a fate 20x worse than she did so forget about Mikoto.
Let me give you a little hint anon. This is a little something I like to call true power.
No I'm actually not. You're just as because your boyfriend Thor wasn't as powerful as you though he was. He's nothing in the face of these girls. Deal with it nerd.
>You're just as because your boyfriend Thor
You're so mad that you can't even type correctly
Not even the guy you're talking about by the way, just saying that what you wrote was extremely fucking gay.
Especially Mikoto aka the golden girl of the entire Raildex series. You honestly think some punk bitch like Thor is going to do anything to her? I highly doubt it because he'd end up in a hospital one way or another.
I can say whatever I want anon and there's literally nothing you can do about it so what do you think about that because I highly doubt you like it very much and yes I am angry and I highly doubt you even know why because you don't understand me.
If that's all you could pay attention to then you clearly couldn't comprehend the message anon. Blame yourself.
Unlike this pathetic fanbase I actually care about the meaning behind Raildex. You're all just worms in my eyes.
>I can say whatever I want anon and there's literally nothing you can do about it so what do you think about that because I highly doubt you like it
I didn't say that you couldn't. Just as you can't stop me from calling you a faggot.
>and yes I am angry and I highly doubt you even know why because you don't understand me.
Nobody fucking cares to understand you. Take your special snowflake shit to some anime forum
See that? You obviously care because you responded to me.
Yea maybe that's because you don't understand me.
I will literally respond to anybody because it's my personality. You just want to change the subject because you know I'm right about Thor and your looking for a way out.
Now you're just being petty anon. This is why you have no friends and that probably explains why you're a magic side fuck boy.
>I will literally respond to anybody because it's my personality.
And how do you know I'm not the same? Why are you assuming you're special?
>You just want to change the subject because you know I'm right about Thor and your looking for a way out.
Once again, wasn't me who said that. YOU are looking for a way out because you know that I'm using your arguments against you and are trying to change the topic back to something you're comfortable with
I don't think I'm special anon I know it so stop acting like you can even compare and the only reason you even jumped in is because I obviously said something you didn't like even though it obviously wasn't directed at you.
I can tell just by the way your acting and you can deny it all you want but I already know so there's no point.
So original anon. Go upstairs and tell your parents what you accomplished and also make sure to tell them it had nothing to do with Raildex.
Umm sir according to my calculations this has nothing to do with the Raildex series. Try again.
>implying I wasn't already triggered just by being inside a Raildex thread
Obviously I already said I'm mad but short term memory loss seems to be a common thing in this fan base. I guess that explains why everybody already forgot about Othinus.
>thinks he made a discovery
Wew. I hate this series and think Kamachi is a hack and left us for dead long ago. I hate to break it to you but this isn't a secret.
I bet you they do and you can't really prove anything so how about that?
Then why the fuck do you keep posting?
Seriously, I'm talking to you as one person to another. If you don't like the series any more, than why don't you just find something else to like? Instead of devoting so much of your time and energy purposefully antagonizing the people that still like the series?
You're so silly anon. I was going to get mad but I just realized you're not joking. I didn't realize how simplistic his fan base could actually be. Maybe this will help you understand.
You probably care for me more than you believe because you're taking the time to have a conversation with me. Maybe you're just drowning yourself in sorrow for no reason.
I'm being serious here man. Why do you keep doing this? You aren't going to get anyone to hate the series just through shitposting. And you could be spending your time watching and talking about something you actually enjoy instead.
Not him but I care. Just fucking talk to me.
>replying to mobileposter
I guess you all need a repeat lesson from elevator-kun and imouto.
Wtf you honestly don't understand me I've said it over and over and over and over and over and over and over again! I always talk about it but you guys obviously don't give a damn because you all just ignore me and act like it's not a big deal! I hate everybody here and I especially hate you! Maybe if you actually paid attention since I started posting here you'd realize I wasn't always like this. I was a big Haruue fan but obviously we can't even talk about her anymore or even any of the Railguns! You guys have changed anon. These threads weren't always like this you know but I watched it turn this way and this is easily one of the most disgusting fan base in all of /a/.
>Inb4 you don't watch that many anime
I've probably watched more anime than anybody in this entire thread and I've seen horrific fan bases before even being a Madoka fan myself but you guys are truly fucking disgusting! Never ask me about my actual feeling for this series again because it's obvious how I feel!
I'm done anon. You've pissed me off and I'm leaving now. Congratulations.
It's going to happen and there's no stopping it.
I'm sorry you feel that way anon. But I think you have something wrong here.
There may be some people that give Railgun shit, but there are plenty of others that like Railgun and even Haruue as well. I myself like Haruue as a character, but think she could have been handled a bit better. You just have to ignore the shitters.
I think you are going about this the wrong way. If you just spoke your true thoughts like this more often, you'd find that there are others that feel the same. It's obvious that Raildex threads weren't what they once were, but if we try hard enough I think we could recapture it. But purposefully antagonizing sides isn't going to accomplish that. We need to ban together and stand up to fags that keep shitting on others. Help me make this place better, anon. Don't work against yourself.
If you ever want to talk about this stuff, I'll be here.
