Toaru Kagaku no Railgun (2009)


Academy City was a city filled with highly developed technologies, where 80% of its residents were students. they studied about ways to increase their Esper powers. Misaka was one of the rare Level 5 Espers in town. she shared a room with Kuroko, a Level 4 esper who was also the member of Judgment. Judgment was a law enforcing group of students. together with Uiharu n Saten, both low level espers, they encounter various cases involving misused of esper power by secretly experimenting on children.

the anime, having a unique plot, was absolutely entertaining n suspenseful! it showed enough of their personal scenes n emotional struggles, as well as their team work on the cases, fighting against powerful enemies that they alone couldn't handle. it went even deeper than that when their team shattered at the same time when many lives were at stake. n not forgetting humor! the relationship between the 2 pairs of friends were so close, they each have a unique way of greeting each other, which pretty much lessen up the tension of the whole anime, making it so enjoyable n heartwarming at the same time.
