A Certain Scientific Railgun
Vol. 8Book - 2013
A dark conspiracy lurks behind the Daihasei Festival, crippling Judgment and hindering Misaka's efforts to investigate.
A Certain Scientific Railgun is a must-have manga series for fans of stories that blend science and magic like Psychic Academy and Full Metal Alchemist.
The "Certain" franchise began with the long-running light novel series A Certain Magical Index, which was adapted into both a manga and an anime series. Its spin-off, A Certain Scientific Railgun, became a breakout hit with a better selling manga and higher rated anime series. In October 2010, a new anime series following the further adventures of both series' protagonists began airing in Japan. A second season of the TV anime A Certain Scientific Railgun will air in 2013.
The Daihasei Festival may be all fun and games (and explosions), but the chaos of the competition also serves as a distraction. A dank conspiracy lurks behind the event, and it ensnares one of Misaka's "sisters." When Misaka tries to investigate, the enemy proves to be more complicated--and ruthless--than she first guesed. Judgment is cripped. Misaka's back may be up against a wall, but some of her other friends prove to be powerhouses in their own right.
