To Aru Kagaku no Railgun is a spin-off from anime To Aru Majutsu no Index. The story is about Misaka Mikoto, one of Index's character, who lives in Academy City. Misaka, also known as Railgun for her level 5 electricity esper, get very unique life along with her three kouhais: Kuroko, Misaka's roommate, level 4 with teleport esper, who really falling in love with her; Saten, level 0, ordinary girl who really wants to increase her level; and her best friend, Uiharu, level 1, who is part of Judgement along with Kuroko.

Story: genre of this anime is slice of life. The story is simple yet interesting. Although I watched this anime without watching the original series (To Aru Majutsu no Index), I still understand the story. 7/10
Animation: the animation is quite good if it is compared with another 2009-released animes. 7/10
Music: fripSide sang the opening themes very well, I was even played "only my railgun" and "Level 5: Judgelight" thousand times with my MP3 player. However, Elisa's ending themes are not special, I think. 8/10
Artwork: I quite love the artwork, especially the main character. Misaka is tsundere and moe girl and I like her. 8/10
Seiyuu: Kuroko's voice was make me dizzy. However, another characters' voice is so-so. 5/10

Overall: 7/10
