'A Certain Scientific Railgun' ('Toaru Kagaku no Railgun') is the anime adaption of the spin-off manga, of the same name, set in the world of 'A Certain Magical Index' ('Toaru Majutsu no Index'). The series follows the adventures of Mikoto Misaka, the third most powerful esper in Academy City, as she and her friends as they encounter the various urban legends of the City. Although the series is a spin-off, knowledge of the wider franchise probably isn’t necessary to understand the series as it does a good job of explaining what you need to know about the characters and the setting.

This four disc set includes all twenty-four episodes of the 'A Certain Scientific Railgun' anime, a series that many people (including myself) consider to be better than the series it is based on. The storylines of this first season can be split into two halves with the first half of the series adapting the Level Upper arc from the manga (there are a few changes here and there but they are mostly quite minor, except for the early introduction of Mitsuko Kongou which sort of messes with her character arc) while the second half consists of mostly anime original content including the Big Spider arc, the Poltergeist arc and a few one off episodes that give some character development to various characters. Although the events of the latter half of the season are anime original, they are generally considered to be somewhat canon for the 'Railgun' series and the wider Raildex-verse itself.

The Level Upper arc is very entertaining and does a good job of introducing the setting and the characters for those who are unfamiliar with the parent series.

As far as I'm concerned spin-offs are, probably, the worst part of a series. Yes, there are plenty of good spin-offs; just look at Torchwood, The Sarah Jane Adventures, Yu-Gi-Oh! GX & 5D's, and all the Star Treks. Then there are some that are mediocre but follow things that can and can't happen in a series world while exploring new things. This sometimes leads to a show being good or bad like Dragon Ball GT; which is a good example of an underrated spin-off, but is arguably the worst in comparison to the rest in the franchise. Then you have spin-offs that are just complete ****; just look at any Yu-Gi-Oh! after 5D's, the idea/original concept for How I Met You're Farther, and that terrible K-9 spin-off that makes me cringe whenever I see it. So, is A Certain Scientific Railgun as decent spin-off to the cliché but great series in which it's based on, A Certain Magical Index?

STORY
In the futuristic Academy City, which is made up of eighty percent students, many of which are Espers possessing unique psychic powers, Mikoto Misaka is an Electromaster who is the third strongest of a mere seven Espers who have given the rank of Level five.
Well, this isn't the first time I haven't been able to explain the plot very well, mainly because it's kind of episodic but certain events do carry over, but I do have things to say about it. The plot is, like I said before, episodic. Certain events do carry over, but it takes a while to do so. In fact it might take at least half the series before it starts to become noticeable. I will say this now; Railgun isn't the most stunning, inspiring, or exciting series-much like Index-but if you stick around until it gets good everything you might find boring at first will pay off later on.
