It’s a good week for checking out shows from the past newly added to Crunchyroll thanks to their partnership with Funimation as another one is on board with A Certain Scientific Railgun S. The full series is now available on the service in its original Japanese language form with English subtitles for viewers in the United States and Canada. The English dubbed version remains available on the Funimation streaming service.
Check out our review of the first half of the season from the home video release.
Plot concept: Something sinister is growing in Academy City. The shadows are filled with whispers of a project to clone one of the super-powered students known as espers. High-ranking master of electricity Mikoto Misaka laughs off these stories until she comes face to face with a copy of herself. The duplicates are real, and are being mass-produced from Misaka’s DNA, making each one of them a little piece of her.
These clones—her sisters—are being systematically murdered in a series of experiments designed to turn a sadistic killer into the strongest esper in history. Misaka vows to save her copies and destroy the project, but this might be one fight she can’t win alone. High-energy battles and intense action explode in this continuation of the Railgun series from the creator of A Certain Magical Index.
