To Aru Kagaku no Railgun Episode 4

October 24, 2009


The 4th episode of To Aru Kagaku no Railgun was released not to long ago. As the story progresses, we begin to have more and more of the cross-over being the side story of To Aru Majutsu no Index. Mikoto is learning more about the different abilities of espers. Throughout this episode she is trying to discover the secrets of the Urban Legend Espers. Mikoto meets up with Toma and everything just becomes crazy!

Episode Summary:

Mikoto, Kuroko, Ruiko and Kazari look up a bunch of urban legends with Mikoto being intrigued by the one about ‘an ability that can cancels out other abilities’. She thinks back to her first meeting of Toma, in which he attempts to save Misaka from a group of thugs. Mikoto just beat the thugs herself, but was surprised her power was ineffective against Tōma. Just then, she encounters Tōma giving directions to a woman who subsequently takes off her shirt in public. The resulting misunderstanding from the crowd causes Tōma to run off before Mikoto can confront him. The woman later introduces herself to Mikoto as a researcher, who Mikoto asks questions concerning her urban legends. Meanwhile, Ruiko decides to rile up Kuroko concerning the legend of ‘The Undressing Woman’. As Mikoto continues to accompany the researcher, who had spilled ice cream on her skirt, she implies that Mikoto might have feelings for Tōma, even labelling her as a tsundere. After the researcher leaves, Mikoto encounters Tōma yet again and challenges him to a fight. Mikoto makes a weapon out of iron sand, but it is dispelled by Tōma’s Imagine Breaker. She attempts a direct attack, but cannot conduct electricity directly through his hand. Tōma tries to forfeit the match when he catches Mikoto flinching, but it just causes her to get angry and chase him all over the place. When Mikoto eventually returns home, she is attacked by a very paranoid Kuroko who thinks she has caught the ‘Undressing Woman’ curse.



  1. If I had Mikoto’s esper abilities I wouldnt need to worry about people that can block them out.. just avoid and destroy! lol. This was a good episode btw I am really getting into railgun but i still will always like my index lol.

  2. Ok so Railgun is getting more confusing and I am telling you I cannot stand Kuroko! Annoying much?.. yes indeed. I like how they had Toma come into this episode however that was nice.
