A Certain Scientific Railgun 02: It’s Important to Keep Yourself Hydrated on Hot Summer Days, Y’knowOctober 15, 2009
It’s a parade of fanservice in this episode of Railgun, none of which I will be covering! If you don’t mind that, then please do read on.
The episode begins with Mikoto failing to electrocute a certain irrelevant protagonist into ashes, after him chasing him around half the city. The exhausted Electromaster returns to her dormitory, accompanied by Ruiko and Kazari. The two unexpected guests ruin Kuroko’s plans to sexually assult her roommate in accommodation of their one month anniversary since they’ve become roommates. This earns her a good smacking.
The four girls then start discussing Kuroko’s mature preferences in lingerie, contrasted to Mikoto and Kazari’s.
Ruiko goes searching through Kuroko’s books, and finds an album full of sneak-shots of Mikoto. This earns her further punishment from her very annoyed senior.
Shortly after, a package arrives for Kuroko: the contents are labeled to be “Computer Parts”. Upon further inquiry, the sender is revealed to be a dealer in aphrodisiacs and herbs. On a fit of rage, Mikoto goes wild, unleashing her powers on the lustrous Teleporter girl.
This commotion comes to the attention of the dorm mistress, who subjects the two to pool-cleaning detention.
At the pool, Mikoto and Kuroko chance upon two of the latter’s friends, one of which mentions that she had been saved by Mikoto from a gang of thugs on one occasion. Kuroko notices the difference in treatment, and begins to grow jealous.
Eventually, Kuroko breaks into tears, believing that she is not worthy to be Mikoto’s partner; that Mikoto does not acknowledge her; and, most importantly, that Mikoto forgot today’s special occasion. This puts Mikoto in a rather awkward situation.
A flashback is shown, depicting the first encounter of the two: Kuroko forcefully breaks into the unsuspecting Mikoto’s room, earning the two cleaning detention. (Some things never change.)
As it turns out, Mikoto had prepared a present for her, just for this special day.
The two make up, and toast to their forthcoming days as partners. Kuroko accidentally ingests the aphrodisiac-spiked beverage she had prepared for Mikoto. In a drugged trance, she uses her powers to teleport Mikoto’s underwear off. Again, she gets yet another taste of the electric ESPer’s powers.
