「Auribus oculi fideliores sunt」
“The Eyes are More Trustworthy than the Ears”
With Corona-chan wreaking viral havoc across the known world it’s probably not that big a surprise Railgun has also fallen victim, but damn, anime delays due to pandemic? We are truly living in the best (worst?) timeline. Nevertheless while Railgun may be gone for another two weeks (!), there’s no denying when it returns the ride commences in earnest.
As Railgun has proven time and again, whenever Misaka winds up in the danger the fun begins and what we have now doesn’t break that trend. It doesn’t matter how many hostages are taken or what danger they are placed in for example: one way or another the biribiri will ride the lightning to a pure and wholesome outcome. Yes, very wholesome. You’d think the likes of our informed MEMBER girl would’ve known that before jumping the gun (read: bring more support), but hey, pride sometimes demands quick action. At least we know now that Misaki and the current underground flavour of the arc aren’t exactly working together; a two-way fight just became a three for all.
What will make the upcoming proceedings particularly interesting too is the role the likes of Uiharu, Saten, and Kuroko will play, because you can be assured Misaka’s friends won’t remain on the sidelines. I don’t think it’ll be long before Saten starts experiencing cognitive dissonance in regards to her memories for example, as curious phone contacts and consistent Misaka contact all but guarantee something triggering her to put mental two and two together. Not to mention the appearance (finally) of Saten’s illustrious shadow metal. Railgun has assembled the cast and given each a purpose, and now all that remains is to at last cash in the rewards by bringing Misaki’s (and MEMBER’s) objectives into the open.
It’s been a roundabout buildup, but Railgun is ready to start flexing its ESP muscles.
