A Certain Crazy Crazy Daughter #23 — What a Twist!

March 12th, 2010


This episode… oh, man… this episode…


Oh lord. This episode was so corny from every single imaginable angle that by the end of it, I was choking down the tears of laughter. So, on at least that front, this was probably my favorite episode of Railgun to date. Sure, it merely started slow, stupid, and vaguely incomprehensible with Kiyama still out and about and big ol’ tearfest from Uiharu. I would think that causing city threatening earthquakes would be a bail violation, but apparently not. I mean, it’s not like she’s dangerously obsessed and willing to endanger hundreds of lives for her goal or anything.

And then we got the big reveal that Telestina is the daughter of SUPER EVIL SCIENTIST that started all this Child Error stuff. That made me laugh. Of course she’s his daughter. Evil runs in families after all. Then Kuroko slapped Uiharu for being a whiny little expletive deleted. That was fantastic. She should have done it again. Then Telestina apparently succumbed to Hinamizawa Syndrome and went insane in the parking lot of what is essentially a combination fire station, research lab, and hospital and nobody noticed at all. From there, we got the corniest "YOU GOTTA TRUST IN YOUR FRIENDS!" speech imaginable, followed by "You’re not going to save the city until you have a proper meal!" plus Saten equipping herself with a bat to go fight exo-suits. A bat. Saten. With a bat. That was the perfect nightcap to how completely inane this episode was.


What a preview!!

  • DmonHiro says:

    Goddamn it Hanyuu, stay out of Railgun!

  • Lero says:

    Saten = Maebeara Keiichi

    Telestina = Gundam’s innovator

  • AGear2Ax says:

    For a moment I tought that Telestina stole Samus Aran’s Gravity Suit.

  • Anonymous says:

    Maybe Touma will show up at the last minute and start punching her in the face.

    • Honoo says:

      Amen to that.


      • TJ says:

        That would be awesome, although I’d feel sorry for Mikoto for losing her spotlight.

      • Anonymous says:

        Mikoto hasn’t really had the spotlight since the second half of the series started. Besides, this task is clearly better suited for Touma. At least he manages to break the bad guy’s face before he ends up in the hospital. That’s more than Mikoto’s been able to pull off so far.

  • Harbin says:

    lol, Beatrice anyone?

  • Yue says:

    Saten, you are batty brilliant!! ^_^

  • X-3 says:

    Telestina’s faces made the episode for me. I mean, wow. It was only then I realized who she was voiced by. It seems I’m not very good at paying attention.

    Also, I’ve been saying “EVIL” every-time she appears. It’s getting fun.

  • I keep expecting Saten to manifest a power at a moment of great need. Maybe it’ll happen when she hits someone with the bat. Super strength, or something like that.

  • Vegetarian4Life says:

    Wow…really missing the fillers at this point.
    At least Kongo showed up!

  • Serpit says:

    These. It hit me when she went all trollface and BAAAAAAKA on Misaka. ****ing Beato. She’s everywhere.

  • Scott says:

    That baseball bat has raised my hopes. If she starts wailing away on a mecha suit in the next ep, I will cry tears of joy. Unfortunately, Saten is likely to get punted to the side and by useless like she’s been in every other episode.

    • Yue says:

      Saten~san isn’t useless!! There’s this episode where she… hmmmmm… (30sec later)

      mmmmm… chocolate marshmallows and ice cream. ^o^

  • ark noir says:

    Bats are the new drills

  • Azure says:

    Kuroko’s Brightslap was indeed an awesome moment.

    By the by. Isn’t Telestina the crazy scientist guy’s granddaughter and not his daughter? (semantics, I know) Also, it seemed to me that she went batshit because of the fact that her grandpappy experimented on her.
