Plot Summary: To Aru no Railgun takes place in city called Academy City that is mainly made up of students with a population of 2.3 million. The technology they have in the city is thirty to forty years far more advanced than anywhere else in the world. The main focus or study in the city is on esper or telekinetic powers and rates the students based on their abilities from level zero to level five, of course level five being the strongest possible, so powerful that only seven students even register at this level and our main fourteen-year-old female lead Misaka Mikoto is ranked number three out the seven registered within the city.
