「屍喰部隊 (スカベンジャー)」 (Sukabanjyaa)
Oh Scavengers, you have to feel for them. From getting mown down by Accelerator to the one-two punch of attempted amputation by android and biribiri spasms, these poor girls never seem to catch a break. And damn couldn’t be more fun to watch. It’s been a while coming, but Dream Ranker has finally reached its climax, and after this it’s nothing but downhill sledding.
Ignoring the scientific validity of souls and their potential existence (because philosophical arguments really need their own forum), Railgun has done as Railgun always does by turning an otherwise innocent concept into a world ender. Thought Level 6 Misaka was bad enough for the health and well-being of Academy City? Why not try on Borg-esque assimilation by metaphysical android. Oh yes, it’s as
moe bad as it sounds—and that means the fireworks will be a sight to behold. Or at least if the Scavengers live long enough to produce more, because you know whatever is powering Doppelganger is not something you want running amuck for long. When your opponent is going for a full serving at the superpower buffet, you don’t want to be around to see what the after-dinner results will be.
Of course, that’s if Scavenger is fortunate enough to have Misaka let them off easy. With Seike fried to a crisp, Leader lacking an arm to properly surveil in true esper fashion, and the ever lovable Naru in need of rebuilding, it’s not a fight you know they stand a chance at winning, but I actually wouldn’t anticipate too many fisticuffs on their part. Given Doppelganger is the enemy for all involved, a few quick words and tacit understanding should be enough to yield one of those temporary and unexpected alliances the Indexverse loves to shower us with. And hey, after Kuroko and Saten get all the fun of making new friends, it’s about time Misaka gets a second go at broadening her social horizons. Even if this latest get-together isn’t likely to turn out like all the rest.
With the female Terminator on the loose and no immediately apparent way to take the thing down, it’s going to be interesting seeing what solution our unorthodox gaggle of girls happen to come up with.
