How is/was railgun? I got 1 episode in and forgot to go back. I actually remember saying "of course the "hot one" has the strongest super power." I might have assumed that the first episode is pretty much what the rest are like. But assumptions are usually wrong
Well, it´s a little bit hard to say, because... if you ONLY watch Railgun season 1, then your assumption may be correct. However, if you then watch season 2, the tone shifts to a darker side.
To get a better understanding, why this happens: Railgun/Mikoto originally is a char from "A certain magical index", which was just popular enough, to get her own show (and i love it way more than index ). Magical Index got 2 seasons, Railgun got 2 Seasons, but in Railgun season 2 you will follow the story from magical index s1, just from Mikotos perspective, and you will get a better and different view of the whole story.
Thats why the tone shift from the "happy girly" style in s1 to a darker gritty and "oh look, a leg, and there, the rest of the body" ^.^
Ok, its no splatter (althought Accelerator is a pretty cruel char at the first season, but even he changes to the better and become a very good char), but some parts of railgun s2 may shock some, if they think, that the whole show is a pretty lighthearted one.
Some say, the best way would be: Magical index s1, then Railgun S1, Magical index 2 Railgun S2, and then the movies. My watch order was also fine, magical index 1+2 and then Railgun 1+2 and then movies. With that, railgun s1 lightened the overall tone pretty good.
Sidenote: Railgun/Mikoto is originally only No. 2 in terms of power, Accelerator is No. 1 But you won´t see Accelerator in Railgun s1. And my personal opinion, Shirai´s teleportation power should make her No. 1 or atleast No.2, but shes not creative enough for that ^.^ There are much more ways to use teleportation, f.e. just teleport your enemy into the sun or into deep space.. maybe close to a black hole Problem solved.
