The first episode was substandard with weak dialog, a lack of suspense and no real emotional impact during scenes that were clearly trying for them.
But considering "A Certain Magical Index" struggled during its first few episodes it seemed like it would be worth a few more.
Unfortunately it didn't improve, with nonsensical one sided no-drama fights (which is saying something), and a fraction of the emotional impact "Magical Index" had it disappointed consistently.
A second season could redeem it, especially because "Accelerator" is an interesting character, but won't be heartbroken if it never happens.
- Good English Dubbing.
- Familiar characters.
- Solid sound track.
- Lower animation quality than Index/Railgun.
- Weak Dialog.
In the end it was watchable filler as we wait to find out of the main franchise gets a 4th season.
