The “Railgun” anime is coming to the end soon. Personally I don’t really like it. The first half of the series followed the original story closely which was good, but it sux that the later half of the series is anime-original. I think the story is going too slow and too slice of life to me. And it sux big time that they don’t get into the “Sisters” arc! You don’t know how much I like the “Sisters”! Wel, No.10032 and Last Order to be exact. =P

And wow, this Misaka is CHEAP! I would buy her in heart beat if she is the “Sisters”, not Misaka herself. I can’t believe GSC set this low price for her. Unless the character is really not popular, otherwise no matter how simple the figure is, GSC will set the price as high as possible to rob our money. Oh, maybe Misaka is one of those “not popular characters”??

——Description from Manufacturer——

A certain scientific figure.

From the popular anime currently being broadcast in Japan, “A Certain Scientific Railgun” comes a PVC figure of Misaka Mikoto wearing her school uniform. Misaka is one of the seven Level 5 espers in Academy City, and the only one who is an electromaster with command over electricity!

She has been posed in the classic pose she always takes just before shooting off her famous “railgun” attack – holding a coin in her one hand whilst staring ahead with an imposing, albeit rather attractive pose. The figure also comes with the popular “iron-sand sword” that appeared in the anime, which can be held in her other hand, allowing for a slightly different display option.
