More Random Notes about Toaru Kagaku no Railgun (Special S Version)

This post probably contains spoilers for Toaru Kagaku no Railgun. Read at your own risk.


Honestly, I didn’t think I’d have enough for this.

  • How the heck does Kuroko change her pose when she teleports? If she’s displacing herself to another location, she should theoretically maintain the same pose. She has been seen going from a standing pose to a crouch, which is physically impossible in the brief moment in which she teleports. Meaning there has to be more to her power than just simple displacement.
  • Why is Accelerator always shown only fighting one Misaka clone at a time? He’s supposed to kill 20,000 clones. At that rate, it should take him over 50 years to kill them all, yet he has somehow killed over 10,000 so far. So he has had to fight many of them on the same day…in fact, assuming it hasn’t been more than a year, he has had to fight at least 20 of them in a single day on some occasions. So why is it that we only see him when he’s fighting one at a time? The most we’ve seen is two in a day, 10031 and 10032 according to the schedule Touma found. And 10030 died the day before at the same time that 10032 was scheduled, meaning that there wouldn’t be any more that day, assuming they follow a pattern.
  • I’ll try to be brief about this one. I’m not sure I can believe how quickly Misaka was able to perfectly simulate the countless impulses that the brain sends out for motor function. Literally five seconds of twitching as she gets up, then she moves as though nothing is wrong. Honestly, there should at least be a time lag caused by the extra effort needed to move. Everything I know about neuroscience is telling me I shouldn’t accept this.

Tiny nitpicking things:

  • A medication taken orally like Febri’s lollipops should take more time to have an effect.
  • Misaka and Kuroko were able to survive a fall from presumably the upper limits of the Earth’s atmosphere. Is Kuroko’s teleportation momentum-canceling?

  1. 1) No idea about that really…:P
    2) Probably the beginning of the outdoor testing was one/two at once to let the Misaka network adapt to the new situation of being outdoor?
    3) *looks away*
    4) Well, it depends on the drug really. There are drugs taken orally that start working after 5-10 minutes.
    5) I think it is, because it happened multiple times in the past. (remember the first episode?)
