^Do you mean an anime? Because it's airing now. On episode 10.

Nice. Not the usual couple for either of them, but then again, anything is better than Kuroko.

I agree with both statements. For anyone curious on how Kuroko could be a good match though, check out "The Level 5-8 Arc" by TheAntiHero on AO3. I was skeptical too, but it works.

As for Saten here, I had such high hopes for her after her first appearance. Sadly she isn't used to her full potential. :(

^I don't think it's particularily hard to make Misaka x Kuroko work. It just takes one very strong moment to flip some switches. Oh and Touma has to be shot with a chainsaw gun. Very unfortunate accident.

I could ship this, although my preferred pairing is Misaka x Shokuhou.

Literally the only thing preventing me from watching this show is the negative reception that S3 got.

Do you just mean watching s3? If so then nothing stops you watching just s1 and s2 - i really really liked them- and tho they all loosely follow on as in the same characters, they are not following on in the story sense- they are all stand alone.

So s3 hasnt been well recieved? I hadnt heard- didnt even know it was airing yet lol.. Any fans of s1 and 2 tell me whats up with 3? I wont bother starting it if its naff.

^ nothing, I think he is confusing season 3 of Index (which was bad even by Index standard) with Season 3 of Railgun. The only controversies regarding Railgun S3 is that they keep delaying episodes, and that's because of the whole coronavirus.

I heard that Index S3 was supposed to be the big "pay-off" or "climax" to everything that Index S1, S2, Railgun and Railgun S set up. I figured that if the pay-off wasn't well executed then I wouldn't bother watching the show. (Just like how I decided against watching GOT due to how bad S8 was)

I'll be (not) controversial and tell you straight up... forget about Index. Maybe watch season 1 if you really care. Railgun, Accellerator and whatever other spin-offs exist and will come out... they are all better than Index. And mostly self-contained.

So far I've only seen the 1st seasons of Railgun & Index so I'm not sure what happens afterwards.

Funnily enough I did like Touma's character before they pulled the amnesia bullshit. He was snarky back then and just instantly became a boring push over.

Why do this?

@Useles hikawa: It's not the same. It's the whole foe-yay angle that makes the Misaka x Shokuhou ship good in my eyes. The way the two of them don't get along at all is what makes them such a good pairing.

Meh I prefer Kuroko with Misaka or Shokuhou.
At least we do get Addiction by TPKTheStoicTPK for the threesome and its sequel story: Side Effects both on fanfiction.com though I really wish someone could do a story for Kuroko and Musujime Awaki ever since that fanart...

@random wanderer: RivalXRival is a godtier ship trope and I also ship Misaka x Shokuhou. But the similarities between Kuroko and Shokuhou are just chef's kiss good. That I like seeing them together.

Kuroko x Shokuhou is definitely a thing in Astral Buddy, which is my favorite Toaru Series.

Controversial opinion maybe: Kuroko would be (is?) the most interesting character of the series if her personality wasn't constantly butchered for bad comedy. Not that the competition is especially fierce.

^Yeah I find Judgement focused Kuroko have more potential, if they tone her Misakasexual and barge in the clone thing.

@Siftben Ah That's nice to know if only I could get around to buying the next two vols, pity prices going up, might have to wait a while.

^ I just did a Misaka x Misaki piece
Definitely loving their interactions during the daihaisei arc; cause Misaki isn’t actually rejecting Misaka, Misaka just insults her and she has no choice but to retort

Railgun may start off as a side series, but it has a better story. Like i get how the first season of index could be good, but things in railgun get progressively better as the series goes on.

Wow, I like knowing that there are more people who ship Misaka x Misaki. I wish there were more fanfics.
