A Certain Scientific Railgun T


A huge city on the western end of Tokyo, with a population of 2.3 million. With 80% of the population being students, this city is known as the Academy City, studying to develop ESP powers that bend the physical laws of the earth.

Receiving an education with a unique curriculum, students that have gained powers undergo regular “System Scans”, and are rated on a 6-step scale, starting from “Level 0” to “Level 5”. At the summit, stands 7 ‘Espers’, who are celebrated for being the strongest.

One of them is Mikoto Misaka.

As the top “Electromaster”, someone who can freely control electricity, she is known as the “Railgun”, and is a 14-year old middle school student studying at the famous all-girls Tokiwadai Middle School.

Her junior, JUDGEMENT’s Kuroko Shirai, Kuruko’s colleague who aspires to be a lady, Kazari Uiharu, and her friend who loves urban legends, Ruiko Saten. As these friends lead a peaceful and ordinary, yet slightly weird life within Academy City, a big, annual event approaches.

The Daihasei Festival. Spanning over 7 days, it’s a huge athletic festival in which espers represent their school in various events. During the festival, portions of the city are open to the public, and events are broadcasted globally, hyping up everyone involved.

But behind that gorgeous setting, things are moving without anyone noticing —–
