I love the Raildex series and I want to pick up the LN's. However I'm a slow reader and my mind slips away while reading a lot, even when I find what I am reading interesting.

Now given that I've watched both seasons of both index and railgun + the movie and manga:
Would it be worth it for me to bare with the earlier novels that the Animu/Mango already covered? Should I just skim through them or should I try to get my shit together to make sure I don't miss any details that the manga/anime doesn't really cover?

>mfw I have to read every 2nd paragraph twice because I keep on losing focus

Note: I suppose I should just straight up mention that I've gotten myself diagnosed for ADHD and was told that I am, in fact, not a spastic. I just have the attention span of a goldfish apparently. Although they where never really clear about that part.

Yes. Some more than others. Volumes 2, 4, 5, 6, and 13, for instance. You can pretty much skim through the others as they're almost the same as the anime and/or not too important

But it is uninspired and shitty SoL of cute grills doing cute grill things. Nobody would care if Nagai actually gave a shit and made good filler that actually made sense in the setting and had meaningful interaction outside of "WOW I LOVE RICE COOKERS THIS CAKE SURE IS TASTY".

I mean come the fuck on man, look at what he has to work with. Why not Focus on Kongou and Kuroko quarreling at school? Why not have an episode where a Misaka clone takes the place of Mikoto and none of her friends notice much? Why not more ITEM schenanigans with the Railgun Team? Or holy shit, why not animate the Railgun SS1 LN, which was literally a canon version of cute grill SoL in skimpy swimsuits with crazy aztec magic fuckery thrown in?

But no, we get a shitty and generic loli, people being grossly out of character, completely retarded plot points, and Saten some how defeating super advanced war machines with a fucking bat. The SoL was fucking shit, and I really don't understand why anyone happily gobbles it up when anyone who gave half a fuck could write SoL 10 times more interesting and dynamic than was what presented.

Because then he'd have to animate Saten getting the short end of the stick and Nagai can't do that to his waifu

Dude should take some professionalism classes from the Index manga artist, who had to fucking skip his waifu's arc.

Goddamn, the SoL stuff in Railgun is so lame.

It could have been interesting, with Saten and Uriharu being completely oblivious to the shit that Misaka has to deal with, and Flat McLesbian suspecting things.

One moment Misaka is bawwwing her eyes about because the 6 million cloneocaust caused by the Nazcellerators, and the next moment she's all like "MUH FREPE PANCAKE THINGIE!"

I still have suspicions about the relationships between the Tokiwadai girls. Neither Kamachi, Fuyukawa or Nagai has ever touched directly upon the subject of how Kuroko and Mikoto actually became friends. I feel like there's a major plot twist there with Misaki at the center of it. Kuroko's obsession with Mikoto is literally at its peak while Misaki is deeply suspicious of her, but the two suddenly drift apart as Misaki more directly interacts with Mikoto and warms up to her in her own twisted way. There's not enough evidence to say Kuroko was actually being manipulated by Misaki, but it would certainly explain a whole lot.

>>
>>121449011
I meant more along the lines of "What determines if I'm an electromaster, aero-Hand, teleporter, ect."

unless what you said is an answer to that question, in that case it's pretty ambiguous.

It has to do with DNA too, I think. All of the Sisters are electromasters and they all share the same DNA as Mikoto.
>>
>>121448912
Aleister goes on something of a tangent about it in volume 2 while talking to Stiyl. It can't be anything physical, as Kakine (and to a lesser extent, Mugino) prove a level 5 ability can persist even if the body is destroyed. I would assume its a projection of ones own soul.
>>
>>121449115
I think its moot, if you were to find your self in that world you would be better off going the magic rout and learning magic that lets you nullify electricity. Its more work but you have a better chance to success. You would also need to practice public speaking so you could make better on the fly speeches than Touma if you want to win her heart.
>>
>>121449115
I thought you meant ability as in utility/power. For what the power itself is I would say that you are at some level correct that your DNA map would at some level at least predispose you to what kind of power you would receive. I don't think which power you get was ever discussed at any length though so it's anyone's guess.
>>121449198
As the anon above you said though, every Sister got electromaster so it would imply it's at least somewhat influenced by your DNA, unless you're about to tell me clones have cloned souls from the original as well
>>
>>121449041
No, naruto, AoT and KlK are worst fanbase.
>>
>>121448518
There's a scene somewhere in the manga that shows Kuroko's diary over the course of the first month or so after enrolling. She started out hating Mikoto because she thought she was stuck up and then after seeing her act heroic in a couple of situations her final entry is something along the lines of "I LOVE ONEE-SAMA."
Evidently she kicks Mikoto's roommate out and moves in, which gets them both in trouble so they have to clean the floors which brings them together as friends.
>>
>>121449221
Just because we only see the success stories of the magicians doesn't mean it should be easier to learn magic than to get an esper power I should think, I'll bet you they have all sorts of level 0s just like AC does.
>>
>>121449317
Thats not that point. The point is its a complete lotto if you get a power that will nullify electricity. If you get something useless like the power to slit leaves, then you are stuck with it. The magic side lets you focus your training with a goal in mind, there is no lotto.

I don't think it can be something that can or will be explained either. If it were the projection of souls, would that imply that two level 3 teleporters are the same in some way?

Yeah, but then I'd probably never end up in Academy City.

Well the sisters clearly state they have borrowed minds. Plus it was already revealed in NT4 that Kiharas know how to access and manipulate what we would consider a soul.
>>
>>121449402
You're of course assuming you're lucky enough to ever discover magic exists in the first place, the statistics are about the same I would expect, not to mention if this is with the goal of being closer to Mikoto in mind, one of those options places you in the same city as her and the other places you square against being normally allowed in her city.

>>121449198
There IS a physical part, otherwise the Misaka clones wouldn't work.

No, because we've clearly seen that every teleporter in Raildex utilizes the power differently.

But they are still teleporters, right? That must mean they have something in common.

Because their scenes were great and the chemistry worked out. Dash on some "Way more time spent together than anyone else" and some character development from Touma of all people and it checks out

>>121449584
You're simplifying it too much. AC may categorize certain abilities as being similar, but the point is every individual's perception is different and they come to similar conclusions by different paths. The AIM diffusion field wouldn't be nearly as potent if personal realities were so easily labeled or identified by superficial traits.

>>121449906
GUTS is not an artificial esper. He does not produce AIM. His Level 5 status is a formality as being recognized as the strongest gemstone. Officially he's an abnormality, like Touma.

anon most of NT7 is a blur for me. iirc it was something about being able to use the aim of every nearby esper, and i can't remember why the level fives worked all the time. i really don't understand how her failed attempt at acquiring ib went down, since he cancels his own aim.

She creates a reference point for nearby espers' AIM, or powers in general, since she analyses what's going on with the esper's body to use their power.

Being the admin of a Level Upper network grants you access to the abilities in that network depending on how you adjust your own brainwaves. Think about how Kazakiri is only able to manifest through the manipulation of Last Order's brainwaves.

You mean that whole Multi Skill thing the scientist pulled off?

>>
>>121450329
Ah, thanks for the clarification.
>>
>>121450458
Like I said earlier in the thread, the clones themselves admit their minds/souls are "borrowed" and not their own. It could be taken in a figurative sense, but NT4 suggests Kiharas actually know how to fuck with that shit.
>>
>>121450458
>unless the soul was somehow cloned into them as well
Maybe it was.

If we took a random anon, had him mindfucked into a blank slate with Misaki's powers, and overwrote his entire knowledge base with an existing esper's, would he produce the same power as that esper?
>>
>>121450594
>>121450543
The Kiharas are able to do that yes, but with the focus that was given on getting Mikoto's DNA map for Raidio Noise I would assume that there is some physical aspect to it, else it would be easier to not have a whole whack of identical girls running around and making people remember cloning is illegal if they happen to spot them.

The only explanation I can sort of see if there is no physical aspect needed and they could have made the clones look like anything and didn't need to screw around with Mikoto to get the electromaster ability into a bunch of them is that it was to ruse Accel into thinking they were clones so he would go with the plan and eventually latch onto Last Order as a way to protect the hub of the network

Go ahead and point out where they forgot everything, I'll wait. Absence of evidence is not evidence of absence, ie; just because they didn't run up and hug doesn't mean they don't know each other. If you have a page where Mikoto goes "Lessar? Who the hell is that?" then by all means

I'd need to read the section where Othinus crushed the dragons again but I think they scale with the size of the threat.

Nuit is the main speaker in the first chapter of the Book of the Law and the feminine compliment to the deity Hadit. Nuit is the infinitely vast circle whose circumference is unmeasurable and whose center is everywhere. Hadit is the infinitely small point within the core of every single thing. The union of the two is yet another glyph of the Great Work.

Hadit, "the great god, the lord of the sky," is depicted on the Stele of Revealing in the form of the winged disk of the Sun.

Hadit is the principal speaker of the second chapter of the Book of the Law, where he identifies himself as the point in the center of the circle, the axle of the wheel, the cube in the circle, "the flame that burns in every heart of man, and in the core of every star," and the worshipper's own self. Hadit has been interpreted as the inner spirit of man, the Holy Ghost, the sperm in which the DNA of man is carried, the Elixir Vitae. When juxtaposed with Nuit in Liber Legis Hadit represents each unique point-experience. These point-experiences in aggregate comprise the sum of all possible experience, Nuit.

In Egyptian mythology, Seb is a son of Shu and Tefnut and a god of fertility and the Earth. He was associated with the goose and the colors green or black. Seb imprisoned the dead souls of evil men and women, keeping them from entering Heaven.

Nuit = Mikoto is obvious, stars and light, etc.
Hadit = Accel: winged disk of the Sun (angel mode), the axle of the wheel (vectors)
Seb = Touma: god of fertility (harem), also associated with snakes (snake --> dragon), imprisoned the dead souls of evil men (IB)

keeping them from entering Heaven (Heaven canceller? What?)

Those plot heavy elements in Railgun are only important to Railgun.

All the worldbuilding, key plot elements and foreshadowing happen in Index. Railgun doesn't even touch the core of AC or the dark side.

So he could throw in a scene like Touma having esper powers and that'd be just dandy because "It's just Railgun, it doesn't matter" No, this shit does get run by Kamachi at least to some extent

So Misaki's backstory isn't canon because it's in Railgun?
>>
>>121452366
Kamachi just keeps Railgun within its boundaries.He's not going to make a major revelation in a spin-off.

>>121452478
Learn to read. The point is that events in Railgun have no effect on the Index storyline whatsoever. More so when Kamachi retroactively adds things to have Mikoto do things and interact with new characters, but for some reason aren't acknowledged in Index in any way.

Alright, so I can assume that Misaki's backstory is irrelevant to the main story then?
>>
>>121452827
You're just pining things to your convenince. It is relevant to her character, and it is actually acknowledged in Index, unlike most of the shit Mikoto does.

dolly is never going to be mentioned nor will the big brain

But doesn't that mean that Railgun is relevant?
