posted on 2009-03-18 00:43 EDT by Egan Loo
A flyer has announced that an anime adaptation of Toaru Kagaku no Railgun (A Certain Scientific Railgun), Motoi Fuyukawa's manga spinoff of Kazuma Kamachi's Toaru Majutsu no Index (A Certain Magic Index) light novels, has been green-lit. More details will be announced on the official website. Toaru Majutsu no Index has already been made into an anime last October. The Toaru Kagaku no Railgun manga has been running in ASCII Media Works' Monthly Comic Dengeki Daioh magazine since the April 2007 issue, and three compiled volumes have been published.
The Toaru Kagaku no Railgun side story is based on Kamachi's original story set in Academy City, a city where about 80% of its 230,000 citizens are students. The story deals with the adventures of Mikoto Misaka, one of the Level 5 psychics in the Toaru Majutsu no Index light novels.
Update: More background information and story details added.
Update 2: An onscreen image at the end of the final episode of the Toaru Majutsu no Index anime on Thursday has confirmed that the anime adaptation of Toaru Kagaku no Railgun has been green-lit.
