To Aru Kagaku no Railgun MMR – Special 01
I think this was meant to try and mimic the previous Index-tan specials that J.C. Staff did, but this 8 minute long special that came with the first DVD/Blu-ray volume of To Aru Kagaku no Railgun was just plain weird. Titled: To Aru Kagaku no Railgun MMR, with MMR standing for “もっとまるっと超電磁砲” (Much More Railgun). If you’ve watched the previous specials that J.C. Staff do, then you’d know that this is generally humorous and includes a lot of random references between the other shows that they do.
Replacing the Gekota giveaway with Alastor; the dorm room manager being a former soldier; Schrödinger’s cat becoming the palm-top tiger; random references to various words involving “jan” and then Misaka’s “Please conserve electricity, biribiri” line done in weird voices wasn’t that good. The only decent thing in the episode was most probably the references to the turbines which is a stab at the Sister’s Arc.
Frankly, this was pretty crap and it looks like they just tried to string random ideas together. Perhaps I had been expecting more seeing as I enjoyed the last Index-tan, but this was just bad.
