Raildex verse (A Certain Magical Index, A Certain Scientific Railgun, A Certain Scientific Accelerator):
It's broken....Since I doubt Aleister is going to let Othinus just waltz into Academy City and ruin his day, he's probably going to active Artificial Heaven. Every time she uses her magic she would pretty much start throwing up her organs. Even better, she would suffer whether her magic properly worked or not. This should deter her from spamming her godly magic. Hamazura Shiage vs. Othinus! Am I the only one who wants this battle to happen?

Accelolita's ButlerSure. But as much as I'm bothered at the latest victim of the patented Touma Punch, I would like to see Othinus' illusions broken by Touma as payback for pwning him eariler.

Técnico ElectromecánicoThat could be an interesting battle, another one I want to see is Shiage versus Tsuchimikado. Why? Because both are Badass Normal (okay, Tsuchimikado is almost a Badass Normal) that fight dirty and have to rely on their wits.

Accelolita's ButlerI wonder if somebody was able to present the possible mechanics of Accelerator's and Mugino's abilities as good as this one. I was looking for something like that one, only for Accelerator, but so far I haven't found anything. It may also help explain how exactly Amata Kihara was able to defeat him. (Of course, all he did was to pull out his punches just before the point of contact with Accel's AIM field) I guess Vector Redirection is much easier to explain, huh? I didn't include Kakine's because his ability requires full understanding of the laws of chemistry and physics as a whole.

Dammit, the guy behind that site quit. Too bad, it was an interesting idea. Although he missed the point that Misaka is holding back most of the time (seen in the end of the anime, where her answer to "You're not strong enough" was "Wanna bet?").
Accelolita's ButlerGee, I wonder why... That, or she's just that insanely powerful that she could destroy AC itself at full power (1GV = 1 billion volts). She's not stated to have the potential to Awaken, though. Well, except in Fan Fics. It doesn't help that espers are getting Worfed by mages lately. I meant by Worfed, I don't know an esper (even Accelerator) who beat a mage in battle.
In fairness, mages were invented to fight espers, while most espers don't even know mages exist.
Three StepsThe analysis seemed to miss the point that doesn't just generate electricity, she controls it. Which means she can do whatever the heck she wants. It's not like the laws of physics really applied in the first place. That said, my default assumption would just be that the speed given is wrong. I'd probably work backwards from "stuff blowing up" if I were doing the calculations.
They also missed the point in which the animation team is obviously not trying to be perfectly accurate. Trying to get the speed by how it is shown on screen is obviously not going to work.
Accelolita's ButlerBut still, the spirit is there. He showed us one of the ways of analyzing the most powerful Electromaster ability in the series using the laws of physics, and thus prove that math and science can be useful in appreciating anime superpowers.
Three StepsMore like useful in identifying how inaccurately everything's animated. Well, it's still true though that the basic premise behind the Academy City espers is that they do high school physics problems really really well. So well, in fact, that it alters reality and defies the very laws of physics they're using. I have to wonder how much of this is because of how they were raised though. The natural espers don't seem to have powers like that. Given the fundamentally reality-altering basis of the AIM field, I think it's likely that the AC espers develop "sciency" powersets simply because that's what they expect from the "sciency" Academy City.

Accelolita's ButlerBecause, man, if everything is realistic, then it's no longer a work of fiction, right?
Latest chapter of Railgun is out.
Yay Railgun manga, the thing everyone agrees to like. So fat guy is making rapey kinds of comments. Charming. But awesome Mikoto is awesome.
The fat boy dies, doesn't he? In a past/future novel, I mean? Also, if I am remembering correctly, he dies drown. Heh, kinda funny, in a dark way. Anyway, are these girls in the end someone I should know?
Three StepsThey made the same sort of dark foreshadowing joke with Frenda earlier. I guess the author likes giving hints about how these characters will die.

These girls, if I recall, were among the first friends Kongou made. EDIT: Although I admit that I may be misremembering things.

Yep, they're those girls. Awesome Mikoto is awesome.
Accelolita's ButlerCan't wait for Electromaster vs. Mental Out showdown.

I just thought on something. Have the books ever explained how Index got access to all the 103.000 grimoires? I mean, it is not like the Anglican Church has all of them, right? They still need her to actually read them in the first place, isn't it? How old is Index, anyway?
Dread LordAccording to the Wiki, about fifteen. Despite looking and acting like twelve because LOLIS. Also, IIRC it was a magical transfer of knowledge, presumably from the previous Index. Assuming there was one at any rate.
Wütend JaegerWhat annoys me about Index is that after all the memorization of those grimoires she still acts (and looks like, much to my neverending annoyance) like a kid. Many works of major philosophers, like Thomas Hobbes (Leviathan) and Rene Descartes (Discourses on the Method) are included as well and did none of them influenced her to any degree?
"I'm going to kill them all, but not before I teach them how to speak so they can beg for mercy while I kill them slowly and painfully!"
@ Heath: Been a while since I saw the anime, but I remember her or Stiyl talking about how she was flown all over the world to memorize books too important to move. Well, presumably all that knowledge is sealed away, just like how she should be the most powerful magician on the planet, but the church won't let her. Actually, her name might be a hint: She's an index. She can pull up any of the knowledge she has stored, but she doesn't understand or comprehend it consciously.
Técnico ElectromecánicoAnd there was the Jonah's pen mode I think it was called, that serves to control her so it may be limiting her acces to all that knowlodge.
Dread LordI'd give her more credit than that; more than once she manages to alter or comprehend new phenomena based on the knowledge she has, like when she reprogrammed that golem using hairpins. On a related note, does anyone else find it weird how scientific the Magic side tends to be whilst the Science side is filled with things taken in part on faith?
