Despite being a spinoff of the franchise’s origin point and still ongoing light novel series, A Certain Magical IndexA Certain Scientific Railgun is immeasurably more popular. Its anime adaption blew up, and its three seasons have been met with generally favorable acclaim, unlike Index and Accelerator.

This series follows Mikoto Misaka, the third-ranked Level 5 Esper of Academy City, alongside her close friends, Shirai Kuroko, Saten Ruiko, and Uiharu Kazari. The group finds themselves dealing with several issues plaguing the world’s Science side, as its title suggests.

Chronologically speaking, the first season of Railgun occurs before the first season of Index, leading to intriguing encounters with that entry’s primary protagonist, Touma Kamijou, if one is aware of what particular plight his character faces.

The second season of Railgun runs roughly parallel to Index’s first season, with a certain arc even being told from two differing perspectives. Lastly, the third and most recent season, Railgun T, takes place somewhat parallel to Index’s second season, also depicting an Index arc from a new side.
