I started To aru Kagaku no Railgun a while back but quickly figured out I'm not its target audience... hahaha. I gotta say though, the opening and closing both are very good.
Probably wouldn't have lasted past the first three minutes either if I hadn't been introduced to it through one of the openings of an osu! map. That interested me enough to put up or skip that crap and then pretend it never happened, but there are definitely some significant parts I'd be cutting out if I were the editor. >_>

Second season thankfully had almost none of that.

It's a spin-off of another series (Index). Technically the part Ian likes (the first half of S2) is the one part that isn't anime-original, lol. (EDIT: okay, the first half of S1 isn't anime-original I guess)

Between the two series I'd say Railgun is probably more more palatable. Index is pretty harem tropeific which will be off-putting to...anyone who isn't a teenager, I guess. The Magic vs Science thing could be cool but in retrospect most of the arcs are either unimportant in the grand scheme of things or building up to something that isn't animated. Railgun meanwhile kind of gets bogged down by slice of life stuff.
Spoiler.
Index S1 was 9 years ago

Pretty sure the all the parts of anything I liked weren't anime-original. I started just assuming things weren't as soon as there was a noitceable drop in quality. Apparently that's the price you've got to pay if you want to see your cartoon explosions in motion.

I watched Neo Yokio. It's definitely in "so bad it's good" territory and I recommend everyone watches it as well.

I'm trying to be a better weeb and keep up with a few shows this season.

Anyone watched Black Clover and not gone deaf from the protagonist's constant screaming?
